Chicken Fajita Salad

I had a hankering for a hearty salad. Chicken Fajita Salad to the rescue! It also works great with shrimp, steak or ground beef/turkey. You can use taco seasoning, but I love using smoky chile powders so I made my own. The Chipotle Ranch can be made by mixing bottled Ranch with Chipotle and SmokedContinue reading “Chicken Fajita Salad”

Copycat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl

I love Chipotle’s Chicken Burrito Bowls, but I’m not a fan of paying almost $10 for it when I can make it much cheaper and add more toppings. I also made a batch of my Cantina Style Salsa to go with it. Chicken: 3 large Chicken Thighs 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil 1 teaspoon Ancho ChileContinue reading “Copycat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl”

Copycat Taco Bell Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad

You can air fry the tortilla bowl too. Or you can do what I did and give yourself a second degree burn. Chicken:Continue reading “Copycat Taco Bell Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad”

Smothered Southwestern Chicken Skillet

I had some leftover corn, homemade black beans and Mexican rice from the other night, so I tossed them all together. Cooking it all in one skillet means less dishes to clean which is just fine by me. It would have been better with cream cheese, but all of mine is frozen. What’s a girlContinue reading “Smothered Southwestern Chicken Skillet”

Black Bean & Chicken Enchiladas

Day 37 of my #PantryChallenge I spent an amazing night with my family yesterday and cooked dinner for them. I brought over most of it from my pantry, but my mom had all the fresh vegetables, cheese (that I forgot at home) and sour cream on hand, so I’m counting it. My dad said theyContinue reading “Black Bean & Chicken Enchiladas”

Fried Cornmeal Mush

Day 8 of the 8 week #PantryChallenge Breakfast for dinner! I wanted something a little lighter because I know I’m going to double in mass tomorrow. Did anyone else grow up eating Fried Cornmeal Mush with maple syrup and fried eggs?   The whole pan set me back 20¢ and it makes 4-5 servings. I makeContinue reading “Fried Cornmeal Mush”
