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”

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. ❤️ Cooking them with broth instead ofContinue reading “Homemade Black Beans”

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 saidContinue reading “Black Bean & Chicken Enchiladas”

InstaPot Copycat Chipotle’s Pork Carnitas Tacos

Day 22 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge Am I the only one who drools over Taco Tuesday posts and has to make tacos the next day? I really wanted Chipotle’s Carnitas Tacos. I decided to go on Chipotle’s website and looked up how much 10 tacos would cost. $36.83 was the grand total and that’sContinue reading “InstaPot Copycat Chipotle’s Pork Carnitas Tacos”

Pantry Challenge Beefy Fritos Burritos

Day 20 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge Tonight’s dinner is the most simplified version I could make of the only thing that my brain and stomach seem to agree on at the moment. Beefy Fritos Burritos! Except I didn’t have any Fritos…or Queso… So I cut some corn tortillas into strips and mixed some cheeseContinue reading “Pantry Challenge Beefy Fritos Burritos”

Copycat Taco Bell Supreme Tacos

I spent all day yesterday making food deliveries and the one spot they kept sending me to was Taco Bell. By the end of the night I really wanted a Taco Supreme, but there’s no way in heck I’m spending $2.50 on a single taco. 40¢ is much more up my alley! Texture is aContinue reading “Copycat Taco Bell Supreme Tacos”

Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Pizza

So, this is now a thing! 🤣 I love it when a random recipe pops into my head. Huevos Rancheros…Pizza. 😂 I’ve made Beef Taco Pizzas before and Chicken Fajita Pizzas before, but this is a new one. It turned out brilliantly! Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Pizza Servings: 4 Cooking Time: 20 Minutes 1 Flatbread PizzaContinue reading “Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Pizza”

Green Chile Beef Taco Soup

I really wanted something Mexican themed and I had some ground beef to use up. This turned out perfect! Unfortunately  I was out of tortilla chips, but I had some taco shells that I could crush up! I’m really broadening my soup portfolio. 😂 Green Chile Beef Taco Soup Servings: 4 Cooking Time: 2 hoursContinue reading “Green Chile Beef Taco Soup”

Crispy Grilled Elk Tacos

These delicious little tacos really hit the spot! I normally double up my tortillas, but they held up brilliantly when frying and didn’t need any extra structural support. 😂 The marinade is key to perfectly tender elk meat, as this was an old bull and his meat was a bit on the tough side. CrispyContinue reading “Crispy Grilled Elk Tacos”
