2 cups shredded cooked chicken (we used breast meat)
8 oz. (2 cups) shredded hot pepper cheese or Monterey Jack cheese (we used Pepper Jack cheese)
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 (6-inch) soft corn tortillas, warmed
Take 1 cup of the tomatillo salsa and spread it out over the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Add the following ingredients to a large mixing bowl, stirring to combine: chicken, 1 cup of cheese, 1 cup of the tomatillo salsa, green onions, cumin, chili powder, and salt. Take 2 heaping tablespoons of the chicken mixture and place it down the center of a tortilla, rolling the tortilla up and placing it in the baking dish afterwards. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Once all your rolled-up tortillas are in the baking dish, spread 1/2 cup of the salsa over them, putting a cover on the baking dish before it gets placed in the oven.
Cook for 30 to 35 minutes in the oven or until the enchiladas are heated throughout. Take the baking dish out long enough to add on the rest of the salsa and cheese, placing it back in the oven for an extra 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
We really enjoyed eating this. We would suggest keeping all the seeds in the serranos for the salsa though ’cause we didn’t get the heat nearly as much in the enchiladas as we did when we were just eating the salsa with chips. You do still get the brightness of the salsa though. Combine that with the cheese and meaty filling, you have a delicious dish. These enchiladas are pretty easy to make and depending on the amount of people you’re serving, could last you two days or more !
1 Tbsp. each salt, cumin, chili powder, paprika (we used smoked paprika), dried oregano, and black pepper (we used freshly ground black pepper)
2 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ tsp. ground red
1 Tbsp. oil
3 cans (10 ½ oz. each) diced tomatoes w/ green chiles
1 jar (16 oz.) salsa (we used Pace mild)
1 onion, chopped (we used a yellow onion)
Take a large mixing bowl out and mix together in it the beef, salt, cumin, chili powder, paprika, oregano, black pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic and ground red pepper.
Set a large skillet over medium-high heat, pouring the oil in afterwards. Once the oil’s hot, add the beef in, cooking it to get browned for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring it around so the meat gets broken up. Drain off any fat before mixing in the tomatoes, salsa and onion. Place the meat mixture into a 4 ½-qt. slow cooker, putting the lid on afterwards. Let it cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours. Serve immediately.
This wasn’t as spicy as we thought it’d be, although it did get a little bit spicier overnight. We loved how easy this was to make, we’ll probably just be using a spicier salsa next time though.
1 ½ lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil
¾ cup roasted cashews (we used unsalted roasted cashews)
1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. chili garlic sauce
1 cup sliced scallions (we cut ours on the bias)
Rice, for serving (optional) (I used rice to make it feel like a complete meal)
Fill a large saucepan with water (don’t fill it all the way up with water though since the chicken will be going in there as well later). Bring the water to a boil and salt the water (I used table salt), adding the chicken in afterwards. Let the chicken cook for 4-5 minutes or until fully cooked. Once the chicken is fully cooked, drain the water and leave the chicken off to the side for now.
Take a wok or large skillet (I used a large skillet) and pour the oil in, setting the heat to medium-high. Once the oil’s hot, add in the cashews, stirring constantly for 1 minute or until the cashews become fragrant (we went with 1 minute). Toss the ginger in and continue to stir for another 30 seconds. Add in the soy sauce and garlic sauce followed by the chicken. Stir to make sure that the cashews and chicken get coated in the sauce and continue to stir occasionally for 2 minutes. Take the skillet off the heat and mix in the scallions.
This was a pretty easy dish to make ! It’s just a little bit on the salty side but you can still get some heat and the fresh scallions help balance the saltiness, all combining to make a delicious dish ! It’s also nice getting different levels of crunch from the cashews and scallions to contrast against the chicken. Besides possibly adding more scallions next time, we’d be happy to eat this again !

Take a small mixing bowl and whisk everything (except the chicken wings) together. Drizzle over the chicken wings and enjoy !
This is a delicious version of Alabama white sauce ! It’s creamy, you can taste the horseradish without it being overpowering and you get some tang from the vinegar. It was so addictively delicious that we’ll at least be doubling the sauce next time so we can really dunk the chicken wings into the sauce !

¼ Tbsp. chicken broth (we used 1 tsp. of reduced-sodium chicken broth)
2 Tbsp. olive oil (we used extra-virgin olive oil)
1 ½ lbs. fresh green beans, trimmed
¾ tsp. lemon-pepper seasoning (we used Mrs. Dash brand)
Lemon wedges (forgot to use them)
Take a large skillet out and pour the broth and oil in, setting the heat to medium-high. Once hot, add the green beans in and cook until they become crisp-tender. Sprinkle on the lemon-pepper seasoning and serve with lemon wedges.
This is such an easy dish to make ! The food lives up to the recipe’s name, you can really taste the lemon in this and it’s nice that there’s still some texture to this.
½ cup packed brown sugar (we used light brown sugar)
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon salt (we used table salt)
1 teaspoon garlic powder (accidentally used 2 tsp.)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon pepper (we used freshly ground black pepper)
½ teaspoon hot pepper sauce, optional (we used Frank’s RedHot Original)
¼ teaspoon liquid smoke, optional (we used hickory)
Take a 5-qt. slow cooker out and place the ribs in it first. Take a large mixing bowl out and combine remaining ingredients together in it, pouring the sauce mixture over the ribs afterwards.
Put the lid on the slow cooker and let it cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours or until the meat is tender (we checked on the ribs after 5 ½ hours and ours were tender by that point).
This was such an easy recipe to make ! The meat was practically falling apart, it was tender. We weren’t sure if accidentally adding more garlic powder than the recipe recommended would mess up the flavor but the sauce tasted good to us so it was a happy accident !

1 lb. beef flank steak, cut into thin bite-sized strips (we used 1 lb. of stir-fry beef)
¾ cup Green Giant Frozen Sweet Peas (any brand is fine)
½ cup chopped carrot
¼ cup sliced green onions (¼ to ½-inch pieces)
¼ cup purchased Szechuan stir-fry sauce
½ cup chopped peanuts
Cook the rice in the water as directed on the package that the rice came in (we followed the package’s directions on how much water to use as well since it was different from the 2 cups listed in this recipe).
While the rice is cooking, take a large skillet out and pour the oil into it, setting the heat to medium-high. Once the oil’s hot, add in the beef, stirring it around until the beef looks nice and browned.
Now toss the peas and carrots into the skillet, stirring for 4 to 5 minutes or until the vegetables feel tender.
Mix in the cooked rice, green onions, and Szechuan sauce into the skillet mixture, turning the heat down to medium-low afterwards. Cook the fried rice for an additional 5 minutes or just until heated throughout, stirring now and then. Pull the skillet off the heat and sprinkle with peanuts afterwards.
Overall, this is an easy dish to make. You can add the peanuts if you want to, it’ll add some more texture to the dish but the fried rice is still delicious even without the peanuts. The dish does have some heat to it but not enough to make your mouth feel like it’s on fire ! If you’d like it spicier though, simply pour some more Szechuan sauce over your portion.
