Easy Taco Skillet is perfect for Taco Tuesday or any time you are looking for some Tex-Mex flavors.  It’s very easy to make, is packed full of flavor, and is a versatile recipe.  When I asked Andrew what his thoughts were, he said “it’s good”.  What he means is it’s cheesy, the beef is spicy, the veggies are fresh, and it has some heat to it but it’s not overpowering.  I would say it’s like taco soup in taste (if you are familiar) but is much heartier. The recipe can be found here. Start by preparing your ingredients.  Chop the bell pepper and green onion, mince the garlic.  Drain and rinse the black beans. Heat oil in a large skillet (one that has a lid) over medium heat.  Add the bell pepper and green onion and cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes.  Next, add the garlic and continue to cook until fragrant.  This happens quickly, about 30 seconds. Add … Continue reading

Cheesy Enchilada Orzo is a simple southwest style meal that is filling, packed with a great blend of flavors and textures, and will satisfy any Tex-Mex cravings! It’s a vegetarian dish that is loaded with tender veggies, chewy orzo, and a spicy sauce.  Think deconstructed enchilada…there is no burrito or shell.  All ingredients are mixed in a skillet and combined with a traditional enchilada sauce.  It’s also a one-pot meal that is easy to make (less time in the kitchen is always a win for me). The recipe can be found here. Start by doing all your food prep; chop the bell peppers, drain the black beans, and green chilies, cube the cream cheese, etc.  Set all ingredients aside. Add the bell peppers and corn to a large skillet.  Heat over medium-high heat and cool until softened.  I used frozen corn and did not thaw it first.  If you use canned corn, make sure to drain the … Continue reading

We are in the midst of apple season in MN has some of the best orchards around!  Prime apple picking is mid-to-late August through late October and makes for a wonderful family tradition!  Our family went to a local apple orchard recently and it was a blast.  We enjoyed some delicious apple treats, took a nice walk through the orchards, picked out a pumpkin to bring home, and just had an all-around good day. Most people have a favorite kind of apple but with so many varieties to choose from, I think it’s hard to pick.  And different kinds work for different recipes, so you have the option to sample different flavors while you cook and try out new recipes. Not everyone has time to spend at an apple orchard or doesn’t have any locations close to home.  In that case, you probably swing by your local grocery store to … Continue reading
