Favorite Tex-Mex Dinners

 Cooking while listening to music or have a movie playing in the background is one of my favorite things. I find the whole activity oddly relaxing and I love how cooking is something that is always reliable – you follow a recipe, it turns out like it’s supposed to, and the second time you make something you can add your own flair to the dish to enhance a certain aspect or add a little bit more flavor to the dish.

Tex-Mex style dishes are amongst my favorite dishes to make. They are pure comfort food and I love all the vegetables these recipes usually call for and they always end up smelling amazing!


Half-Baked Harvest Salsa Verde Chicken and Rice Tortilla Soup

I am currently obsessed with this soup; it is my new most favorite thing. It only requires one pot, easy to make, you can top this soup however your heart’s desire, and so much flavor is packed into bowl. Sidenote: This was the first recipe I made that called for poblano peppers… I thought they would be on the same level as a bell pepper, and handed them without a care… if you are like me and have sensitive skin, be sure to handle these in a similar way you would a jalapeƱo.


Ree Drummond Stuffed Bell Peppers

This is such a great make ahead dish or make in the moment dish and there are always plenty of leftovers. I have made this recipe countless times over years, and it is the best bell pepper recipe I have ever come across… the only changes I have made to this recipe is I use ground turkey instead of ground beef, I add about a cup of corn, and I usually have enough stuffing to fill eight bell peppers. Highly recommend serving this with Bob Evan’s mashed potatoes!

The Pinning Mama Baked Southwest Chicken

If you have been searching for a recipe that is healthy, flavorful, easy, and quick, than look no further because this recipe is all of the above! It is honestly one of those dishes you will make once a week. This is another recipe I have made a ridiculous amount of time… I usually double the amount of cumin and pepper this recipe calls for and I use pepper jack cheese instead of Colby jack cheese. I also usually server this with the chicken on top of a bed of mashed potatoes. 

Just a Taste Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

This is another dish that is so quick and easy to make and perfect for a weeknight dinner when you are in a pinch. I lowkey love all the colors that are involved in the making of this dish…. It looks like a rainbow, plus it is healthy, filling, and low in calories!

The Pioneer Woman Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

No exaggeration when I say this is the best chili I have ever had,. I follow this recipe to the tee and it is always amazing and is another great leftover dish. A little old school, but I love noodles instead of chips in my chili and love the Cellentani (the spiral macaroni noodles). Also, if you are new to the ground turkey game, in my honest opinion, Butterball has the best ground turkey, hands down.
