I am also considering how I can take this blog into my new endeavors, but more on that another time.
Friday: Turkey Pesto Sandwiches - I'm doing turkey because I can pick up a roasted turkey breast at the grocery store to shred. We made and froze tons of pesto during the summer, so I just have to thaw that out.
Saturday: Cheesy Enchilada Skillet - I'll probably throw some chicken into this.
Sunday: Pedro's Special - This is a family favorite that my mom used to make, and I've been making for years for my kids. My version uses pinto beans instead of kidney; Doritos instead of corn chips; and a lot of additional spices: cumin, garlic, Mexican oregano, a pinch of cayenne. This is pure comfort food!
Monday: Spanish Rice - Another take on one of my mom's recipes. It's basically stuffed peppers, but without peppers, lol. A big pot of rice; ground beef browned with onions and garlic; tomato juice and tons of spices all mixed together, then baked for a bit. Mmmmmmm.
Tuesday: 8 Can Taco Soup - I got the idea for the soup from the link, but made a few changes. First of all, I double it, because we'll eat the leftovers for days! Instead of cream of chicken soup, I use one can of good quality tomato soup and one can red enchilada sauce (ditch the green). Instead of plain diced canned tomatoes, I use the kind that has the green chilies added in; and instead of a taco seasoning packet, I season myself. Sometimes I throw in a bit of leftover diced chicken as well. Easy peasy!
Wednesday: Korean Kimchi Stew - Spicy, warming, delicious! If you don't have Korean chili pepper, use cayenne - and a lot less if you don't do spicy well! We love it hot, but we still only use a teaspoon. You can usually find Gochujang in the "International" food aisle of your grocery store.
What are you cooking up this week?
