My food choices have been a lot less than ideal lately, and it’s now time to turn that around! I have been enjoying A LOT of sweets and other baked goods, and now my body is screaming for a reset. I decided to whip up some of this Spicy Black Bean Hummus because it is light, low carb, FULL of flavor and spice and it is so delicious with a lot of different things. I like to top burgers with this, dip fresh vegetables in it or load it up on some pita chips. This bean dip takes only a few minutes to make, so try it out today!
This Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup is super easy to make, absolutely delicious and it has just the right amount of spice. This is a great easy meal to make that everyone will love. Top it with shredded cheese, sour cream, green onion and cilantro and enjoy!
Soup season is well underway, and I for one couldn’t be happier! I am constantly looking for new soup and stew ideas that will warm me from the inside out. This Easy White Chicken Chili is ready in just about 30 minutes, and it can be made as spicy or mild as you would like (we like it SPICY!). Top this soup with jalapeño, avocado, sour cream, cheese, cilantro, lime, tortilla strips or really whatever you want and enjoy!
I have been making this Easy Fresh Aji Picante for years and my husband and I love to put it on just about anything! I originally found this recipe on Skinny Taste. If you have not checked out all of the amazing recipes that Gina has created at skinnytaste.com, you are really missing out! Making this Colombian hot sauce is as simple as blending the ingredients together. It takes only a few minutes, and the result is a perfectly spicy and fresh sauce that is incredibly versatile. This is a naturally carb free, dairy free, gluten free, vegan and vegetarian sauce, so it is great for most diets!
Everyone, myself included, loves a great taco. I am always open to making and trying different types of tacos. The other day, I was having an internal struggle because I really wanted some tacos, but I was also craving some super flavorful Korean beef. I decided to marry the two things and make something delicious that I am wondering why I never did this before. These Korean Beef Tacos are incredibly quick and easy to make and they have a delicious sriracha lime mayo drizzled on top. I like to top mine with some fresh cilantro and red onion and also some crisp kimchi for an extra kick of flavor.
Almost always, here in America, you will find an Asian dish served with either rice or noodles. While I love both rice and noodles, I like to mix things up. I decided to take one of the other more popular starches and add a little Asian flair to it. These Crispy Roasted Asian Potatoes are seasoned just perfectly to give you all the flavor you could want and also a nice kick of spice. Serve these potatoes just about any meat for a unique and delicious meal that is sure to add a little excitement to your dinner rotation.
Pork chops are a food that I probably underutilize. There is really so much that can be done with them, but I tend to forget about them and go straight for the chicken. These Baked Asian Marinated Pork Chops may just be a game changer for me! They are so easy to make, don’t need long to marinate, can be made as spicy or mild as you like and the marinade is packed with so much flavor that you will for sure want seconds! Serve these with some fresh veggies, rice, noodles or any of your other favorite sides!
I personally feel like flank steak is a highly underappreciated cut of beef. It is considerably less expensive per pound than many other steaks, it cooks a lot faster than thicker pieces of meat, and it is great for so many things from fajitas, salads, sandwiches and mostly as a vehicle for a delicious marinade. This Cilantro Lime Marinated Flank Steak is super easy to make, great to throw on the grill and serve to guests, low carb (only 1 net carb/serving!) and LOADED with flavor. Try it out for yourself and see!
Making homemade dressings is really such a simple thing to do, but a lot of us (myself included) don’t bother to do it a lot of the time. Many store bought versions are packed with extra and unnecessary calories, preservatives and sugar. This Avocado Lime Dressing only takes a couple minutes to make and it tastes better than anything you will find in the grocery store. This dressing is packed with healthy ingredients. It is low calorie and low carb with only 1 net carb. It is creamy and delicious, and you can probably fool your kids into eating something healthy without them even knowing it! You can pour this all over your favorite salad, dip any meat in it, use it as a marinade, put it on your tacos and so much more!
When I think of the perfect home cooked meal, I am imagining anything saucy, flavorful and cheesy. These enchiladas are all of those things and then so much more, and that’s why they are called The Best Easy Chicken Enchiladas. The homemade sauce is really what makes these enchiladas. Making homemade enchilada sauce is really a very easy thing to do, and it is so much better than the stuff you can find at the grocery store. This is an excellent weeknight dinner recipe that comes together quickly, but tastes like something that took a lot longer to make.
