Loaded Turkey & Veggie Chili

A little bit of a cheat since beans really aren’t part of my diet plan, but I need them in my chili. I made some cheese crisps to use as chips and topped the chili with sour cream, cheese and avocado. So delicious! 2 lbs Ground Turkey 1 cup Zucchini; cored & chopped 1/2 cupContinue reading “Loaded Turkey & Veggie Chili”

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”

Homemade Black Beans

There is no price comparison when it comes to canned black beans and homemade. They’re so much richer in flavor and they’re not as hard as you think to make. You can also cook these in an InstaPot or slow cooker, but I prefer them on the stovetop. I definitely recommend cooking them with brothContinue reading “Homemade Black Beans”

Beef Taco Pizza

I love Taco Pizza! You can substitute the refried beans for enchilada sauce, but I prefer the creaminess of the beans. It’s by far one of my favorite pizzas! Preheating the pizza stone is key for a crispy crust that’s fluffy on the inside. Be sure to sprinkle corn meal to keep it from stickingContinue reading “Beef Taco Pizza”

Full English Fry Up

I made a Full English Fry Up for the first time! Couldn’t find Black Pudding anywhere so I substituted fried Andouille. The BBQ Bourbon Baked Beans definitely stole the show! I added in mustard powder and fresh Thyme and they are leagues better than any of those canned beans! I added some toast and AppleContinue reading “Full English Fry Up”

Brown Sugar Bourbon Baked Beans

I know that baked beans don’t normally include black beans, but I like their texture and think they make an amazing addition to your typical Baked Beans! It’s a little time consuming, but you’ll save tons of money over the canned variety. It makes an excellent pot luck or cookout side dish.
