Jerk Chicken Gyros

Last night’s (and tonight’s) dinner. Jerk Chicken Gyros. I normally cook them on the smoker, but my handy-dandy skillet did the trick. I used up the last of my Jerk Seasoning mix, so it’s definitely time to make some more. Jerk Seasoning: 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder 1 teaspoon Onion Salt 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika 1Continue reading “Jerk Chicken Gyros”

Taco Egg Rolls

Southwest Egg Rolls are what’s for dinner! It’s a great way to use up any extra taco meat you have in the fridge. I made a lot so I can freeze some and pop them in my Air Fryer on busy days. Kids LOVE these just as much as adults do and they disappear fast!Continue reading “Taco Egg Rolls”

Smoky Chicken Caesar Wrap

I made Caesar dressing for the first time and I’m never buying the bottled stuff ever again. It took a minute to make and it was so much fresher! After yesterday’s insanely rich Cajun Shrimp Pasta, I really needed something a bit lighter. This really hit the spot and it’s portable, so I can justContinue reading “Smoky Chicken Caesar Wrap”

Smokey Cajun Shrimp Pasta

My baby brother wanted shrimp and I wanted pasta. I’ve seen Cajun Shrimp Pasta before and figured you can’t go wrong with cajun spices, smoked shrimp, pasta and a cream sauce. So, here’s my take. Naturally it has bacon and smoked paprika. Pasta: 16 oz Fettuccine Pasta 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil Shrimp: 2 lbs JumboContinue reading “Smokey Cajun Shrimp Pasta”

Toasted Lemon Dill Bacon Tuna Sub

Every once in a while a delicious Tuna Sub sounds so amazing! I’m not a huge fan of mayo forward tuna salad or the super sweet version with miracle whip and sweet relish. Lemon dill is much more my jam. Tuna Salad: 2 cans Tuna; drained 1/4 cup Celery; chopped 1/4 cup Onion; chopped 1/3Continue reading “Toasted Lemon Dill Bacon Tuna Sub”

Copycat Taco Bell Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad

Still mourning Taco Bell’s Fiesta Taco Salad. I added some things that don’t normally come with it and I baked the chicken in my toaster oven so I wasn’t babysitting my griddle. 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”

Frito Taco Salad

This is such a great weeknight meal. It’s quick, cheap and so delicious! For a lighter option try ground turkey. This is also a great way of hiding vegetables from finicky kids and adults alike! Taco Meat: 2 lbs Ground Beef 2 cups Yellow Squash; cored and minced 2/3 cup Taco Seasoning OR: 2 TablespoonsContinue reading “Frito Taco Salad”

Cajun Shrimp Jalapeno Poppers

Experimenting with some new Game Day dishes. Bacon Wrapped Cajun Shrimp Jalapeño Poppers. They were so delicious! If you’d like a hotter popper, you can keep the seeds in. For a sweeter option, try it with bell peppers. 6 large Jalapenos 12 Bacon Strips 12 Medium Shrimp; peeled and deveined 1/2 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning MixContinue reading “Cajun Shrimp Jalapeno Poppers”

Buffalo Ranch Roasted Cauliflower

Hopping back on the Pantry Challenge for a hot minute. I have a bunch of ingredients I need to use up. Buffalo Wings sounded so good, but I didn’t have any on hand. I know Buffalo Cauliflower is a thing, though I’ve never tried it. Well, today’s the day! It was ridiculously good and itContinue reading “Buffalo Ranch Roasted Cauliflower”

Smoky Bacon Chicken & Waffles Sandwich

I’ve never had legitimate Chicken and Waffles before. I tried it once with frozen chicken tenders and pre-mixed waffle batter and wasn’t impressed. Making it from scratch is definitely the way to go! The smoked paprika and maple syrup went really well together! 2 Bacon Strips; cooked 2 Tablespoons Butter 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon 1 TablespoonContinue reading “Smoky Bacon Chicken & Waffles Sandwich”
