Cheese & Green Chile Oven Omelette

How to make a quick and easy oven omelette recipe with eggs, cheddar and cottage cheese and green chiles. Makes a simple low carb, keto, and paleo breakfast casserole without potatoes or bread. Perfect for busy families for mornings, breakfast, brunch, lunch, or even dinner. Could add bacon, baked ham, or sausage for a little extra oomph, but the vegetarian version is awesome on its own.

I have always eaten a lot of eggs. Starting when I was a little girl, my sister and I would walk to Old Grandma’s house (just down the dirt road a stretch or over the hill and across the field) and eat 2 fried eggs – yolks broken and hard – for breakfast with Grandpa. Later, I ate fried eggs in a restaurant when my dad took my little sister and I for breakfast. Then, when I became a vegetarian in college, I ate a whole lot of eggs as they were a reliable source of protein. When I moved … Read more

Southwest Chicken and Rice in the Instant Pot

How to make the best quick and easy chicken taco recipe in the Instant Pot. Super healthy with rice, beans, salsa, and cilantro. Authentic Mexican recipe for street tacos.

We resisted the Instant Pot for a long time, but when my friend Jill drank the Kool-Aid and raved about her IP, I finally caved and got one. She said it would save oodles of time and energy in the kitchen, and my poor husband is seriously overworked, so I thought he would love it – if it was as amazing as Jill claimed. I brought the new Instant Pot home and gave it to Joe for his birthday, hoping he would not hate me for it. Well, he didn’t. He did a little research and totally fell in love … Read more

CrockPot Mexican Steak and Beans

We like meals where there is salsa and there is cheese. Give us those two things, throw in some chocolate beans (Allie’s term, black beans to the rest of us) and corn, and you have a meal that Joe and I are sure to gobble up. This recipe, because it is made in the CrockPot, is even better than the average salsa, cheese, bean, and corn concoction. Joe tossed it in the crock the night before, left it in the refrigerator overnight, and put it into the CrockPot in the morning. By suppertime, we had tender steak tips with a spicy … 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

Mexican Burgers

Mexican Burgers

Joe doesn’t especially like burgers with stuff added to them. He prefers plain old ground meat. I really like burgers that are different from just plain old ground meat. Joe really likes me. Joe makes a lot of burgers that are more than just plain old ground meat. Through the years, each of these has been my favorite for a little while: chili burgers (spicy!), the best hamburgers (almost like a meatloaf but in burger form, so delicious), and Hawaiian burgers (sweet). I have a new favorite these days, Mexican burgers. We have them whenever someone mentions burgers, and that happens to be at least once … 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
