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”

Battle of the air fryers! Chicken Wing Edition! GoWise Air Fryer Bundle (Walmart $70) Oster All-In-One (Fred Meyers clearances at $50) I’m going to be focusing on healthier meals for a while so I can lose my Pandemic Pudge.

Copycat Panda Express Sweet Fire Chicken

Day 16 of my 8 week Pantry Challenge! I almost caved and ordered Panda Express. I REALLY wanted their Sweet Fire Chicken, Broccoli Beef and Fried Rice. But then I remembered that it costs $12/plate and I have what I need to make it for around $5. You can use bottled Sweet Chile Sauce asContinue reading “Copycat Panda Express Sweet Fire Chicken”

Sweet Heat Cornbread Muffins

I love making this cornbread recipe. The combination of sweet and heat can’t be beat! It’s slightly cake-like on the inside with a wonderfully crunchy crust. If you aren’t a fan of hot foods, substituting the jalapeños for bell peppers is a great option. They go great with the honey! I love serving them warmContinue reading “Sweet Heat Cornbread Muffins”

Sweet Chile Cornbread

This is one of my all time favorite cornbread recipes! It’s an amazing combination of heat and sweet! Using canned Green Chiles doesn’t make it too spicy, so if you’d like to ramp up the heat try some diced jalapeños! I’ve found that using yellow corn meal creates a more cake like cornbread (my preference),Continue reading “Sweet Chile Cornbread”

Smoked Buffalo Wings

It’s a family tradition to make wings once a week and it’s something the whole family looks forward to!

Hot Sauce: 2 lbs hot peppers of choiceContinue reading “Smoked Buffalo Wings”

Spicy Fried Rice

Fried Rice was one of the first dishes I ever cooked and I’ve made it the same way for over a decade using Minute Rice and a few ingredients. Needless to say, I was getting pretty bored with the same ol’ thing. I decided to revamp it and add some heat! It really hit theContinue reading “Spicy Fried Rice”
