Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup can officially go down as one of my favorite meals ever! I have always been partial to this soup on restaurant menus & one of my very favorites has always been Chili’s version of this recipe.
Many years ago I found a make alike recipe that helped me “crack the code” on how to make this yummy soup. For some strange reason, this soup I love so much got put on the figurative “back burner”.
This could totally be one of “those” recipes. You know, one of the recipes that is kept secret — locked up and never shared in it’s entirety?? Good for you – I am bad at keeping a good thing secret! In addition to being the most perfect salsa tasting salsa, it is just so very easy to make. You must try this at home! Continue reading
Okay, I hear you:
“Green salad…EXTRAORDINARY??? Really??”
Yes! I mean it — it is really extraordinary! Continue reading
Time for a simple & hearty meal idea: Beans & Chicos! Chicos are a New Mexican style of dried corn – you can read all about chicos HERE. When I purchased the chicos, the herd, hubby & I were enjoying our Spring Break in northern New Mexico. Continue reading
I just love this simple side dish – so much that the next time I make it, I plan to quadruple it and call it dinner! It is just.that.good. And speaking of sides – this really is the perfect simple side for your upcoming Thanksgiving Feast – so add it to your menu, gather your short list of ingredients and prepare to be dazzled.
I have been meaning to highlight several of these recipes for quite a while now – but was finally prompted into action by one of my good friends ((and former college roommate)) to throw a few recipes out to all the peeps who live a gluten-free life. One of the reasons I haven’t said much about gluten up to this point is because I don’t want to be incorrectly perceived as “jumping on the GF bandwagon” because it is “hot” right now. I certainly don’t want people to think I want to steal some traffic because of the buzz surrounding gluten. Continue reading
Over the last few weeks, I have been playing a cooking game with myself. As dinnertime approaches, I begin taking inventory of my fridge, freezer, pantry & garden. Then I ask myself “What can I make in 1.5 hours without buying any additional ingredients and without making my kiddos gag and cry?” — It’s a really fun game, you should try it some time.
One of my favorite things is to use my garden harvest in meal-making for the family. My rainbow chard has been growing like CRAZY this year… causing me to have daydreams of chard recipes. This recipe is a result of one of those daydreams! Continue reading
One of my favorite summer sides is fried yellow squash. In the summer, grandpa always had an abundance of yellow summer squash & brought a sack ((or 2)) crammed full every time he & grandma came for a visit. Mom sliced it & tossed it in a seasoned flour/cornmeal mixture. Then she fried it in the skillet. I don’t think there is anything that tastes better! Continue reading
I love ranch dressing…it is by far my favorite food group. Fruit & Veggies, Grains, Dairy, Proteins, Sugars and Ranch! It is one of those foods I would ‘swim’ in if I could. Continue reading
My favorite type of guacamole is the kind that keeps the avocado ‘STAR’ Continue reading
It’s that time of week where it seems as though there isn’t enough time in the day to check off all of the ‘to-do’s’ on my list. But one thing is for certain: when the clock strikes 6, I will have a herd of people asking for dinner. Continue reading
