Ground Chicken & White Bean Green Chile

June 4, 2017 Carrie Hill 0

Share List Hubby requested chili for dinner – but I had 2 lbs of ground chicken that needed to be used up – so I whipped this chilE up, which was a conglomeration of my Pueblo Green Chile and white chicken chili recipes.  It’s pretty dang tasty and ground chicken is fairly economical.  If you don’t have ground, or don’t want to grind your own in your food processor or >> Get the Recipe!

Share List I am generally a “from the jar” spaghetti sauce kind of girl, but my daughter has a cumin allergy – causes severe migraines – and most jarred sauces have cumin in them.  I used to make my own sauce so I thought I’d write out the recipe for her to use in place of “migraine sauce” as she’s called it. This is pretty flexible – just don’t substitute >> Get the Recipe!

Share List Oatmeal is good for you, right? So these Oatmeal Cookies with Dark Chocolate & Walnuts are really really good for you…… Okay maybe not – but these cookies are swoonworthy – and definitely packed with flavor.  I like that they use old-fashioned oats – I think they hold up better, they don’t “dissolve” into the cookie – which means a better oatmeal-cookie-texture. Use semi-sweet chips if you prefer, >> Get the Recipe!

Sausage & Potato Soup with Kale Recipe

Share List This sausage & potato soup with kale recipe that started as a copycat recipe of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana.  I do things a bit differently – I dont use heavy cream, or the spinach or escarole they put in their version, I use Kale.  It stands up to heat better, therefore the soup reheats and freezes like a dream.  Also – I despise cooked spinach.  Gross.
