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”

Blackened Salmon

I love well balanced meals! The whole thing about dieting is that there’s no such thing as the cure-all diet. I’ve tried keto, paleo, Atkins, etc. but the diet that works best is loading up on the veggies and making the star of the dish a protein that you love. So tonight I made blackenedContinue reading “Blackened Salmon”

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’s a girlContinue reading “Smothered Southwestern Chicken Skillet”

Jerk Chicken Skewers

I made enough of the spice mixture to fill the mason jar, it was that good! I prepped all the skewers last night, then just threw them on my griddle for lunch.

Sausage Egg and Bacon Breakfast Melts

So much cheesy goodness! Sausage Egg and Bacon Breakfast Melts, one for dinner tonight and the other for breakfast tomorrow. Honestly, I could only finish half of the sandwich. They were 5” tall before I squished them with another pan! I also made some Cheesy Pepper Hash Browns to go with it. Scrambled Eggs: 3Continue reading “Sausage Egg and Bacon Breakfast Melts”
