Spanish Black Bean and Plantain Turkey Chili

Spanish Black Bean and Plantain Turkey Chili

This is one of my favorite original creations lately. I took several different chili ideas and morphed them into one. This is because I wanted to make chili but something different than what I usually make. I wanted something new. So my list of ideas […]

Butternut Squash Burrito Bowls

Butternut Squash Burrito Bowls

As I transitioned to being a vegetarian I while also being the main cook of the apartment I was playing with meals that could easily be “just add meat” meals. Things I could make for Justin and I that he could then cook meet separately […]

Chicken Mole with Baked Plantains

Chicken Mole with Baked Plantains

I made this mole sauce ages ago and kept the rest in the freezer. I got about 16 servings out of it and I used half the recipe. The only thing I changed is I left out raisins because at the time I wasn’t big on all […]

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I definitely love stuffing sweet potatoes with things. Just type “sweet potato” into the search bar and you’ll find at least 5 stuffed sweet potato recipes. And many more that just incorporate this delicious tuber in some other way. Sweet potatoes are easily in my […]

Gluten Free Honey Chipotle Lime Baked Meatballs

Gluten Free Honey Chipotle Lime Baked Meatballs

These meatballs are probably the tastiest ones I’ve made yet and no recipe inspiration was used. I simply used the chipotle peppers and limes I needed for the peach glaze I made this week and turned them into meatballs. I served them with quinoa, jalapenos […]

Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos (with Mango Salsa and Cilantro Avocado Sauce)

Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos (with Mango Salsa and Cilantro Avocado Sauce)

Ah, shrimp tacos are hands down one of my favorite summer meals. I don’t even need the tortillas or cheese because there is so much other good stuff going on here. This recipe makes for great lettuce tacos – even if it’s a bit messy […]

Easy Fajita Chicken Quinoa Meal Prep Bowls

Easy Fajita Chicken Quinoa Meal Prep Bowls

These fajita chicken bowls were a meal I tossed together because I bought bell peppers on sale mid-week after our beach trip figuring I would probably just cook them up and throw them in some breakfast scrambles or something. They didn’t get cooked though so come Friday […]

Taco Tuna Salad Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Taco Tuna Salad Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

If there are two foods I love most it’s probably Mexican food and sweet potatoes (if we’re taking chocolate out of the mix here and just talking meal-type foods). So why not put them together? This taco tuna salad was the product of what I […]

Crockpot Pork Carnita & Guacamole Bowls

Crockpot Pork Carnita & Guacamole Bowls

So my brilliant plan to make pork carnitas turned into a slightly incomplete meal (albeit still satisfying) because I don’t eat wheat currently. I thought about making paleo tortillas but realized I wouldn’t have the time. I also just did lettuce wraps last week and didn’t want to […]

Turkey Chorizo Breakfast Hash

Turkey Chorizo Breakfast Hash

I love Mexican food. Even for breakfast. Huevos Rancheros was one of the first things I really got into when I began eating eggs and loving breakfast food. No more huevos rancheros these days though because beans. Instead I’ll do fajita style scrambles or egg-muffins. […]
