Since we’re all stuck at home and many of us are cooking more meals than we’re used to, I thought I would share a few recipes that we’ve been eating lately. A few are new and a few are tried and true. I’ve included some dinner meals, lunches, and snacks. Just a note, these are not pretty photos – they’re shot from my iPhone just before we dig in.
Along with these, we’ve also been making lots of quick and easy meals such as tacos, spaghetti, enchiladas, baked ziti, grilled hamburgers and hotdogs, and frozen pizzas. Many of these make enough food that we have leftovers for a couple days, so it’s a win-win.
We’ve made this soup a couple times and it’s sooo good! Chicken enchilada soup is one of our favorites, and this is a cheesy, creamy twist, with a different kind of southwest flavor.
I found this recipe a little while back for steak tacos al carbon. The seasoning on the steak was very good! Definitely worth a try.
This has been a favorite recipe of ours for a while now. It’s a 5 ingredient, throw-it-in-the-crockpot-and-forget-about-it meal. It’s melt-in-your-mouth tender, a little spicy, and it creates it’s own gravy that is full of flavor and delicious. Best part is, it makes a ton (depending on the size of the chuck roast) and it’s even better leftover. It’s like the flavors soak into the meat in the fridge and it makes it even spicier and more flavorful. I’m thinking I may have to make this one again this week! My mouth is watering!
This is a quick lunch recipe I found recently, and I had to put the ingredients on my shopping list for my last big grocery run. I used whatever bread we had on hand, and it turned out so good. It tastes like some sort of pepperoni garlic bread. Great for lunches!
A long time favorite! Another crock pot meal you can throw in and forget about, and the kids love it. You can also throw all the ingredients in a gallon size ziplock and freeze it for later.
Build your own BBQ Nachos
Simple and easy to make – grab some BBQ from your favorite local BBQ joint, make your own cheese dip (we made Rotel cheese dip), and create your own nachos with your favorite chips and whatever toppings you want. You can also bake some potatoes and make your own BBQ stuffed potatoes.
Super easy to make, delicious, and a fun way to involve the kids in helping make breakfast.
I make these cookies every Easter because they’re so pretty with the Easter M&Ms. They can obviously be made with regular M&Ms or any holiday M&Ms. They’re a yummy treat if you’re looking for something easy to make for a snack.
We made Dole Whip floats for Disney Day last weekend, and had them again this week. Add these 3 simple ingredients to your next grocery list, because you’ll definitely want to indulge in this treat.
What have you been making lately? I’d love to add some new recipes to the rotation! Have a great week.
