This vegetarian enchiladas recipe is a crowd pleaser – even for those who don’t love mushrooms. My 12-year-old didn’t even notice they were in there once they were smothered with the cheese mixture and yummy sauce.
I’ve got a super easy new recipe to share with you today … Vegetarian Slow Cooker Black Bean Tacos! This simple and tasty dish is from my friend Gina’s new Skinnytaste Fast and Slow cookbook.
Over the years, I’ve enjoyed a number of pepper jellies, but I’ve always bemoaned the amount of sugar necessary for their creation. This version uses honey in place of refined sugar and is satisfyingly sweet without being cloying.
This is a great light dish for summer that comes together very quickly, especially with the use of frozen corn (instead of boiling fresh corn and cutting it off the cob). If you’re looking for ways to reduce your overall consumption of meat, which is good for both your health and your wallet, this recipe for Tex-Mex Corn Fritters Over Black Bean Salad is a great place to start.
Last month we were lucky enough to celebrate my husband’s cousin’s 40th birthday with friends and family from afar, in Mexico. We not only had a blast but enjoyed lots of tasty food while we were there too, including Huevos Rancheros for breakfast every single morning!
We are big lovers of Mexican food at my house, and this Taco Pie is no exception! I took my Shepherd’s Pie recipe, gave the meat and veggies a taco flair, and topped it with sweet potatoes for an easy weeknight meal.
I told my husband I wanted to make queso dip, and he said, “how are you going to make a cheese dip ‘healthy?'” Well, here’s the answer!
I recently got a beautiful new cookbook in the mail from fellow food blogger Jenny McGruther with Nourished Kitchen, and I am excited to share one of the recipes with you today! The first recipe I decided to make from this book was Potato and Spinach Soup with Jalapeño. This dish sounded awesome to me because the potatoes would make the dish fairly filling, all the veggies you would need for your meal are blended in, and uh, it calls for bacon. :)
I have clearly been on a slow cooker recipe kick lately! I just love those evenings when dinner is done (and even cleaned up minus the plates – or bowls in this case!). Whether you are busy entertaining guests from out of town or just have a hectic afternoon or evening planned, your slow cooker is the only thing between you and a wholesome real food meal like this slow cooker chili.
This dish is super easy to throw together, and it’s definitely a crowd pleaser. Who doesn’t love Mexican food? I don’t think it’s a secret that our family is a BIG fan and almost once a week we are sure to enjoy some south of the border fare like homemade refried beans, taco salad, pork carnitas, flank steak fajitas, vegetable quesadillas, homemade tortillas, or the like. And now we can add these “tostadas” to our repertoire…
I sense a new obsession coming on…and it’s food grilled in foil packets! What could be more perfect for outdoor cookouts, camping trips, and upcoming long holiday weekends? I just love the unique presentation and tasty goodness of this cooking technique and can’t wait to make them again and again and again this summer. Think of this dish as “deconstructed kabobs” that basically marinate in the homemade sauce until cooking time. Once you are ready to cook simply throw them on the grill or directly into the hot coals of a campfire (or backyard fire pit). I can’t think of a better way to soak up the great outdoors!
