Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Sadly, this will probably be my last soup recipe until fall hits.  :(  I don’t know what it is but I just can’t get myself to eat a hot bowl of soup when it’s hot outside.  It’s just not appealing to me.

But on the bright side, I left the best soup for last!  Yummy loaded baked potato soup.  It’s cheesy, creamy and so delish.  I left some nice potato chunks in mine but you could puree it smooth if you wanted to instead.  I like feeling the texture of the potato and broccoli bits.

Crockpot Salsa Chicken

Holy moly, it’s been so long since I blogged here!  I’ve been so busy lately and I haven’t really been trying new recipes to share with you.  I do have a few now though, so I apologize if you keep coming here and seeing nothing new.

Today’s new recipe: salsa chicken.  A moist and creamy shredded chicken recipe that’s super simple.  Just drop a few ingredients into the crockpot and poof, you’ve got a great mixture to put on top of just about anything.

We ate our salsa chicken on top of some brown rice, but you could easily top baked potatoes instead.  I also think it would be great to make shredded chicken nachos with any leftovers you have.

Barbecue sauce is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to make.  There are so many great bbq recipes out there to try.  With just a few different ingredients, you can add a whole different depth of flavor to simple grilled chicken breasts.  And it’s so much better than the bottled versions!

This barbecue sauce is so easy and just calls for mainly spices and ketchup.  If you keep a stocked pantry like I usually do, you probably already have all of these ingredients for this sweet and tasty sauce.  Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Classic Beef Chili

My husband and I couldn’t be more opposite when it comes to food.  He’s a big meat and potatoes person and I’m more chicken and salads.  He loves things like chili so every once in a while I throw him a bone and make a pot just for him.  It never even makes it to the freezer, he devours it all in two days flat.

Being that I’m not a chili connoisseur, I have to take his word on this recipe.  I was a bit worried while making it cause the crushed tomatoes and tomato paste give it a fairly strong tomato taste.  He hates tomatoes, so I thought he’d fuss over it.  But surprisingly, he thought this beef chili was very tasty.
