Turkey Enchilada Lasagna – Great Way to Use Leftover Turkey

Turkey enchilada lasagna recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers. Mexican casserole.

I love Mexican food in all varieties. It has been a little challenging to eat Mexican since my bariatric surgery, but I am still able to find good things to eat. This “lasagna” is one of those very good things. While my family eats this dish the way it’s presented in the recipe, I eat only the filling. When Joe is preparing the meal, he sets aside about 12 ounces of the turkey/sauce/veggies mixture for me, and I eat half of that per meal topped with half an ounce of cheddar cheese and some steamed vegetables on the side. I … Read more

CrockPot Mediterranean Chicken with Feta and Black Olives

CrockPot Mediterranean Chicken with Black Olives and Feta Cheese

Olives are ubiquitous at my house. They’re always on the table. Special occasions call for olives. Sundays call for olives. We eat olives just about every day. My kids’ favorite part of black olives is putting them on their fingers and pretending to be monsters. I’m not saying you have to do that to make this recipe, but if you feel so inclined, it definitely adds to the charm. Anyway, we tried this recipe recently and loved it. After a day in the crock-pot, the chicken is fall apart tender, the potatoes are perfect, and the feta and olives add … Read more

Easy Mexican Pizza

Easy Mexican Pizza

This is a sponsored post. Joe created the recipe himself, and all opinions are mine. The worst part of my being gluten-free is the lack of convenience food. When we’ve been working out in the garden for too long, and we come inside, covered with dirt and hungry, we have painfully few options. Joe put together these Mexican pizzas one day when exactly that happened. The sun was shining, and we gardened and played outside late into the evening. By the time we came in, it was after 6 o’clock. Joe made Mexican pizzas on Flatout Thin Crust Flatbreads (which … Read more

Jalapeño Chicken Corn Bake (featuring #KingsHawaiian Bread)

jalapeno chicken corn bake

Joe and I are always on the lookout for our next favorite recipe. We try all sorts of things, including crockpot meals and meals prepared in the microwave. Our 2-year-old oven broke a couple of weeks ago, so we’ve been using the crockpot and microwave more than ever since then. Yes, I called a repairman, but he didn’t called back. I guess I should call someone else tomorrow. Anyway. We’ve become very resourceful where our microwave is concerned. And also? In the middle of a  heat wave, the microwave is a very smart appliance to use. It doesn’t heat up our … Read more

Turkey Quesadillas

turkey fajita quesadilla

Grace resists taking naps these days. She’s just so over all that baby stuff. Nonetheless, she gets very tired some days. Don’t we all? Once in a while, I can convince her to lay down in my bed – with me and Allie – so that we can encourage Allie to take a nap. Allie really resists taking naps; she always has. So, the three of us lay in my bed, pull up the covers, read a story or two, and then we are quiet and still for fifteen minutes. Most of the time, quiet and still turns into a … Read more

Quick and Easy Black Bean Burritos

The best vegetarian black bean burritos recipe - These quick and easy wraps have beens, rice, and corn with Mexican spices and make the perfect dinner or lunch. Wrapped in a tortilla. Could be gluten-free and vegan with a few modifications.

It’s probably obvious, but we love Mexican-inspired meals around here. Our favorites at the moment are grilled burritos, BBQ chicken enchiladas, cheese and onion enchiladas, spicy beans and rice, and breakfast burritos. These quick and easy black bean burritos are quickly gaining favor, too. I like them because they come together in about five seconds (okay, a little more than that, but not much), and Joe likes them because they remind him of one of our favorite food joints, Neato Burrito. It’s a bonus that they don’t heat up the house. Even Grace likes them, as long as we use mild … Read more
