Oh my gosh is your kitchen looking like mine as the days count down to Christmas? Bags of chocolate chips, flour everywhere, rolling pins and candies and sugar, oh my! And here it is December 20th & I am starting to realize that I just might not accomplish everything I’ve been hoping to before the big day. Mostly because I keep adding things, lol! But I want to back away from the baking (that should be a Meme, shouldn’t it?) and share out this perfect little accompaniment to just about any holiday meal, Spicy Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce.
If you’ve been a follower (and if not, I’d love if you would; signups for email, facebook, and twitter are to the right) ya gotta know by now that I am a Soup lover, and def a Chili lover (they are all on my main index for Soups Chowders & Chili.) I have all kinds of Chili on my site ranging from old school to family-friendly, green to red, and a few grown-up ones. This Spicy Black Bean Chili is in that last category.
Do you know what I think has never really gotten it’s due? Mexican Style Ground Beef. I think too often at home we spice up our ground beef with taco seasoning which is fine, but you don’t get that great Restaurant Style Mexican Ground Beef flavor and the taste and texture that comes with it.
Awhile back, I put out a recipe for my new fave burger, Feta Stuffed Harissa Sliders. Those are such juicy, fun, zippy burgers; check them out if you didn’t see them when I posted them. Since I used Harissa in those burgers, a North African condiment of different peppers, I thought it would be fun to find something from Africa to go along with the burgers. So here it is, African Tomato & Onion Salad.
I see recipes for sheet pan fajitas all the time and have even made them myself (and I have a dry Fajita Seasoning on my site to sprinkle on those sheet pan fajitas) but every once in a while I want the real deal. Real deal smoky, spicy lime-y grilled fajitas. Classic Grilled Chicken Fajitas.
