Southwest Bake

Southwest Bake

This southwest bake is the epitome of a “breakfast for dinner” food. It has layers of tortillas sprinkled with flavorful Italian sausage. It is slightly spicy from the green chilis and oh so cheesy from the Colby jack cheese. Top all of that off with fluffy eggs and you have yourself a delicious, filling meal.

Enchilada Meatballs

Enchilada Meatballs

Enchilada meatballs have everything you love about an enchilada, just without the tortilla! Tender ground beef combines with warm spices and red enchilada sauce plus lots of cheese to create simple meatballs the whole family will love!

Easy Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Easy Baked Macaroni and Cheese

This macaroni and cheese has four different kinds of cheeses! It’s got mild cheddar, the classic. It has gouda, the big guns. Plus, cream cheese, the smoothinator (yep I made that up!) and parm, because noodles need parm.

Cheesy Ham and Potato Soup

Cheesy Ham and Potato Soup

I love this soup for many reasons, the number one reason being: no peeling potatoes. Secondly, the cheese. How can you not love cheese? The last major reason why I love this soup, is that you can have it done in about 30 minutes!

Instant Pot Southwest Chicken and Barley Soup

Instant Pot Southwest Chicken and Barley Soup

Southwest chicken and barley soup really does have it all. It has tender chicken, which cooks in the flavorful broth and veggies and then is shredded at the end. It’s a bit spicy with the Rotel tomatoes, southwest corn and spices. But the star of the show is really the barley.

Slow Cooker BBQ Beef

Slow Cooker BBQ Beef

What I love most about this recipe is that you can eat it a lot of different ways. You can eat it with mashed potatoes and veggies. You can eat in in a wrap with lettuce and tomato. The possibilities are endless with this incredibly tender meat.

Burrito Pie

Burrito Pie

Instead of making actual burritos, all the components of a meat, bean and cheese burrito are stacked up with salsa and spices and baked to perfection. I love this meal because it takes hardly any effort and it is very customizable to what your family likes.

Slow Cooker Tex Mex 15 Bean Soup

Slow Cooker Tex Mex 15 Bean Soup

Aside from the 15 different beans in this recipe, it also has peppers, onions, tomatoes, and a little bite to it with green chilis and ancho chili powder.

Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup

Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup

This soup has so many big chunks of mushrooms, carrots, onions and plenty of wild rice! As an added bonus, wild rice is high in protein and gluten free!

Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup

Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup

This recipe for minestrone is a little different in that it has an addition of cabbage in it. It just enhances the flavor of this soup.
