Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

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.

Potato Corn Chowder Instant Pot or Not

This year I was gifted some sweet corn, freshly picked the night before. First of all, there’s something magical about fresh sweet corn, but to think of it being picked, on a balmy summer night by the light of the moon. All of a sudden it seemed even more magical! Some of my Sweet Corn went to my Instant Pot Sweet Corn (love love love no pots of boiling water and the IP cooks corn so beautifully) and the rest, well it went into this Potato Corn Chowder Instant Pot or Not.

Sensational Cajun Chicken Salad

Sensational Cajun Chicken Salad

What actually makes this Sensational Cajun Chicken Salad Cajun? It’s the Grilled Blackened Cajun Chicken Breasts but beyond that, I’ve used the kind of old-fashioned but always good Sensational Salad Dressing (it has Romano cheese in it) that hails from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While a salad like this isn’t the traditional way to use the dressing, that dressing does make this salad sensational!
