I was chatting with my friend Tonya on facebook book the other day. I asked if she’d made anything great in her Instant Pot and she gave me this recipe, Instant Pot Mexican Chipotle Chicken Soup. This soup saved my life! Thanks Tonya for sharing!
I really have been in fun food mode, especially with Halloween coming up and fall here. See, in the summer most of us Minnesotans are out doing whatever we can to take advantage of the weather, but when fall comes we like to tuck in and party at home. Or at least I do! And especially if I have Juicy Lucyfer Sliders.
I would say I’m having a secret love affair, except it’s no secret that I’m loving my Instant Pot. And ya’ll probably know that I love Mexcian & Southwestern food. And I’ve been known to stop by Chiptole’s Mexican Grill now & then. So it was just a matter of time, eh? for this Instant Pot Chipotle Barbacoa Beef.
When I made my Steak Ramen Bowls with Chipotle Yum Yum Sauce, you know what I needed? I needed the Yum Yum Sauce.
If you’re looking for a simple dinner with flavor to die for, this is the one. Mexican Style Pot Roast. Perfect for a family, easy to make and a bounty of succulent, tender meat for dinner (and if there’s any left) some of the best leftovers, ever.
Here’s a recipe to fall in love with – Chicken Tacos with Cherry Chipotle Salsa.
Meatloaf is a huge favorite with my folks. And with just about everyone, I think, once fall hits. But who has time to wait for a meatloaf to bake when there’s a zillion things going on?
Hey, I’m a planner but this still happens to me! It’s 4:30 and I open the fridge to make dinner and *duh* I forgot to take out the chicken to thaw. The ravenous octogenarians (my folks, or maybe for you, it’s your kids; I’ve been there, too…) and are emitting hangry noises, circling like sharks ready for the kill.
You’ve all heard me talking about my folks and their love for steak – and I think I’m being corrupted a bit! This Carne Asada is a steak I fell pretty hard for, done up today in taco form.
I always say I don’t use my crockpot enough, so if you’re like me, here’s a recipe that will put that slow cooker into regular rotation. Honey Lime Chicken. If there’s ever a better taste combo than slightly spicy, slightly sweet, tangy Slow Cooker Mexican Style Honey Lime Chicken I don’t know what it is…
I love making barbecue sauces but they can be a process. Here’s a spicy/sweet little number with some Chipotle heat that needs nothing more than a quick stir and few minutes of time.
This year, it seems I’m all about the tomato. We’ve been tomato crazy, and now have tons of tomatoes in various stages of ripening. If you’re in the same boat, this Smoky Chipotle Tomato Chutney is gonna be a perfect way to use up a glut of red ones.
Steak is rare in the Frugal Household. 🙂 Seldom eaten, it’s usually one of the cheaper cuts, and it’s given all the help it can get. This one is flavored with a Chili Lime marinade and slathered with a Honey Chipotle glaze – you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven!
Empanadas have long been a favorite indulgence, whether made with a traditional filling to some crazy wild combination, they’re just fun to eat! From the flavorful filling to the crispy, flaky pastry, they practically shout party! These Chipotle Pulled Pork Empanadas are no exception.
An obligatory visit to the Taco House in Arnold’s Park, Iowa is a long-standing tradition to those who flock to the “Iowa Great Lakes” during the summer. One local said, “Crowds, mess, long lines and sometimes indifferent food served up by surly local teenagers in the middle of Northwest Iowa doesn’t necessarily give one hope of a culinary high adventure!”
This Chipotle Chicken Chowder has become a favorite of mine, which is a bit of a shame since someone in my family (no names mentioned to protect the guilty) won’t touch soup. And they’re missing out (and making me miss out) on having Chipotle Chicken Chowder in a regular rotation!
Chipotle’s chicken – my son is wild about it & orders the Chicken Burrito every time he goes, which is as often as he can. He isn’t the only one that likes Chipotle: there’s always a line, there are numerous Copycat recipes and a fan site. People are crazy about Chipotle. I thought it was high time I made a Chipotle Chicken Burrito Copycat Recipe at home.
I have a few different Chicken Chili recipes here on my site and a couple of Beef Chilis, too. And they all have their place and all serve their purpose. This one here, this Chipotle Chicken Chili is a serious chili. This is an adult Chili. This is the Chili you want to serve to score points on game day or at the ski condo when you’re serving to those you know can man up and take it, even if they’re maybe not men. Maybe even if they’re a Grandma five times over like me!
