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’sContinue reading “Smothered Southwestern Chicken Skillet”

Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup

Day 26 of my Pantry Challenge. ❤️  I told myself to only make 4 servings. 😩 But if I taste something and it needs another flavor I toss it in. Next thing I know, the soup’s doubled. Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup anyone?! I didn’t have any beef broth, so I used the stock fromContinue reading “Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup”

More experimenting in the kitchen! Cheesy Meat and Veggie Pie with a hash brown crust.
