Bean and Cheese Enchiladas

Please forgive my photo.  I didn’t take the time to plate this before taking the pictures, so you get to see the serving dish and even the cheesy spatula.

I made these for a quick and easy weeknight dinner after scrounging my pantry and fridge for ingredients to pull together a meal.  We all really liked them.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Shrimp Tacos

I have the best neighbors.  I asked my boys what they wanted for dinner the other day, and they both requested Fish Tacos.  The Chipotle Dressing calls for cilantro.  I have some growing in the garden, but there wasn’t much.  I took it in the house, determined to make it work and then the phone rang.  It was my neighbor asking if I needed cilantro.  She had a bunch that she wouldn’t be able to use up and offered it to me, not realizing that I needed some at that exact moment!  It’s such a blessing to have neighbors like that!

Back to the tacos – I had 1 bag of Tilapia fillets in the freezer and also a bag of shrimp, so I decided to make both kinds.  I seasoned the shrimp with plenty of Old Bay Seasoning and sizzled them in a hot, iron skillet.  This time I only had romaine lettuce, instead of the slaw mix or cabbage, but it made a good substitution.

Chicken Quesadillas

Every once in a while I think I might be losing my mind.  Okay.  I think that more than just every once in a while.

Regardless, this recipe has made me question my cognitive bearings.  The other night I decided to whip up some quesadillas for dinner.  Not wanting to reinvent the recipe, I did a search on my blog to find out how I made it before.  I know I made them once before.  I’m sure I posted it here.  I remember some of the comments.

However, I couldn’t find the recipe on here anywhere.  I dug through my wordpress files.  I searched various titles, categories and tags.  Nothing.  Squat nada.

So, I started from scratch making up a new recipe.  It still bugs me that I don’t know what happened to the other one.  Maybe I never posted it.  Maybe I really am losing my mind.  Oh well.  Let’s have a quesadilla and it will all be okay.

Beef and Black Bean Taco Bake

This is a beef spin on the Black Bean and Corn Chicken Taco Bake.  I was trying to come up with a dinner idea the other day and had all the ingredients except chicken.  But I had cooked ground beef in the freezer, so decided to give it a try.  It turned out really well.  Just as easy as the chicken version and just as tasty.  [Read more…]

Breakfast Burritos

I completely forgot to take a picture of these before we ate them all.  They are slightly adapted from Pioneer Woman’s recipe.  She uses homemade potatoes, but I decided to take a short cut and use the O’brien potatoes from the store.  I also used Italian sausage, which I’d already cooked and frozen.  I couldn’t find any regular sausage in my freezer.

I made about half the amount that PW makes and still ended up with about 12 burritos, using the fajita-sized tortillas. [Read more…]

Black Bean and Corn Chicken Taco Bake

My friend, Claire left this recipe in a comment here on Eat at Home.  It’s fast, easy and Mexican so of course I had to try it.  I’m happy to say that it’s delicious too!  There are only 4 ingredients to put together, which is a nice bonus. [Read more…]

Salsa Verde Steak in the Slow Cooker

This is so good and easy.  A delicious Mexican meal that cooks in a crockpot – 2 of my favorite things.  I adapted the recipe from The Ungourmet.

Here’s what you’ll need: [Read more…]

White Enchiladas

I’ve had this recipe on my “to-make” list for quite a while now.  I shouldn’t have waited so long to try it out.  Even my son, who doesn’t like enchiladas, liked these.  I made them a week ago and then on Monday, I saw that Pioneer Woman had posted her version of White Chicken Enchiladas.  I have no doubt that hers are delicious, but these are easier.  And a bit lower in fat.

Chicken Tacos

Chances are, you already make chicken tacos or some version of them.  Three ingredients and a slow cooker (plus the taco fixings) – that’s my kind of meal!  As a bonus, you can throw the chicken in the slow cooker still frozen.  That’s perfect for those days you only have 5 minutes to get dinner started.

East Meets West Burgers

East Meets West Burgers done slaw

It’s What’s for Dinner Wednesdays.  I was asked, along with a few other bloggers, to participate in a recipe challenge hosted by Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner.  The recipe for this week is East Meets West Burgers.  I altered the recipe just a bit, using tortillas instead of buns.  I also took advantage of a jar of Hoisin Sauce to flavor the burgers, cutting down on the number of ingredients.
