Another Soup Sunday has come and gone. However, this Sunday was a little different. I made a chili for Soup Sunday. Now, do you consider chili a “soup?” I mean, in the soup section of a cookbook would you find chili? I feel like chili would be in the soup family. I digress, this week I made a killer chili for Soup Sunday. This chili combines a few flavors in one amazing dish. It’s a bonus that you make this in the crock pot, and it’s wonderfully easy.
Along with Italian food, I love Mexican food. I am also a huge fan of casseroles. In fact, I’ve made a few casseroles on here already. A couple of those casseroles happen to be Mexican inspired. So, I guess you could say I enjoy making and eating Mexican casseroles. Anyway, this post includes a delicious Mexican casserole. Oh, and it includes Doritos. Doritos are always delicious.
This is the first post of the week featuring some delicious food I made for Super Bowl Sunday. Who says Super Bowl food has to be fattening, fried, or full of calories? Not me. My football snacks are low in calorie and full of flavor. Not only are these snacks and foods perfect for football, they are great any time of the year.
So for the new year, I decided to make a resolution. I’m already on a fitness journey, so I wanted to pick a resolution that focused on food. I decided I wanted to try a new food each month. Now, this could be a food I’ve never had before, or this could be a food I’ve had but that I personally have not made. So for the next year you will see some recipes that feature one or both parts of my resolution. This is the first post in my resolution collection.
One of my coworkers inspired this post, and she doesn’t even know it. She mentioned that she was looking for pesto sauce at the store one day and couldn’t find it. I told her she could make her own. I have no idea if she actually did, but my own advice stuck with me. I’ve never made pesto sauce, so it was only right if I tried making it myself. After all, I did suggest it to her, blindly.
A few weeks ago Samuel and I were watching a food show, big surprise as I love food shows. Well, this time the feature of the show was empanadas. I’ll preface this post by saying I’ve never made empanadas before. After watching the show, it was kindly suggested I try to make empanadas sometime soon. So I did some research on empanandas.
I am a fan of one pot meals. I’ve made one other on this blog, One Pot Garlic and White Cheddar Pasta, and it was tasty. One pot meals are wonderful because you cook everything in one pot. This makes doing dishes very easy. It also makes making dinner easy. So in the spirit of one pot dishes, I wanted to do one without pasta. I decided to make a dish that is hearty and delicious.
Merry Christmas! I hope this post finds you eating some delicious treats and spending time with loved ones. This may seem like an odd post for Christmas, but I think all food is perfect during the holidays. One of the most comforting foods, to me, is pasta. Pasta is one of my favorite foods. I especially love it in casseroles when it is melty and cheesy. This recipe does just that!
I have tried to be adventurous this year with my cooking. I really should have made it a New Year’s resolution in fact. Usually, I am stubborn and don’t like trying new things, especially new foods. I am very particular, and I just know I won’t like certain foods even before trying them. Well, I made a side dish this weekend that I never would have willingly tried before this year. In fact, I was very excited to make this dish!
Soup Sunday made its return this weekend at my house. Last Sunday, I was going to make one of my favorite soups, but some things came up so Soup Sunday was postponed. Now it’s back! I try to mix up soups so we try new ones, like when I made Creamy Cauliflower Soup, and old favorites. Well, it was time for an old favorite this week. This soup is one of the easiest, cheapest, and most delicious soups you can make. Please give a warm welcome to my Crock Pot Taco Soup!
