Recently I saw a Tik Tok on Chile Rellenos Casserole – which led me to pull up an old recipe of mine. I gotta say hands down the Tik Tok looked like a clear winner! I had to make it!
There’s nothing like a great Mexican Red Rice on your plate when you’re having Taco Tuesday or any other Mexican or Southwestern dinner. There’s a reason so many of us at home either skip it altogether or turn to a mix – after all, why put effort into a dish that even at restaurants is sometimes lackluster and gets picked at or pushed aside. This Instant Pot Mexican Red Rice is going to rock your world – or at least get you some fab Mexican Red Rice on the table!
One of my favorite things in the whole world is Green Chili. But not just any ol’ green Chili. I’m talkin’ Green Chili like they make in Denver or pretty much all over Colorado, especially along the front range, and sometimes in Northern New Mexico and out across the prairie to Nebraska. In Colorado, it’s usually called Pork Green Chili, but on my site, I’m adding in Colorado to the name, Colorado Pork Green Chili.
I can’t say Spanish Shrimp & Chorizo is the most frugal dish, but if you follow some of the shopping tips below, it won’t break the bank. Even though, it’s a bit of a splurge but a splurge that is so worth it! My gosh, you’ll feel like you’re eating like a king – or a queen!
Sometimes I think a bell pepper can be stuffed with just about anything but I gotta tell you these easy Southwestern Stuffed Peppers are really a standout. They have the fun flavor of tacos but are fresher, lighter, and lower carb, and can I just say, stuffed with mostly pantry ingredients? And cheese. And ground beef, chicken or turkey (or just go vegetarian.) And then, well, more cheese.
