Hearty Steakhouse Stew

I am a lover of heavy, filling soups. Ones that are easily a filling meal by themselves. I got on this kick back in college when I ordered a cup of steak stew rather than a salad at a steakhouse one time and was instantly in love.

There are two versions of this stew that I make, with and without chicken. With the rising cost of food, and everything in general being more expensive down here in Puerto Rico, I have been using only the scraps and bones from the steak for flavor, and then using a precooked rotisserie chicken for the main protein. This is another one of those meals that you can make with a $5 chicken and really stretch it to get your moneys worth.

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

This is the first post in a series where I am going to share easy recipes that you can make with a rotisserie chicken, found at your local grocery store. Here in Puerto Rico I can get a pre-cooked, hot-off-the-spit-chicken from Sam’s club for just under $5. I can’t even get a frozen chicken for that price! I have been trying to get creative with how I serve it, so that we do not get burned out on this great money saving dinner staple.
Here is what you will need to make the enchiladas.

Easy Cheesy Chicken and Salsa Dinner

A friend of mine, Angela, passed this recipe on to me a few months back and I have fallen in love with how easy it is to make and how delicious the leftovers heat up! The first time that I made it I was a little skeptical so I only made it in a small baking […]

Easy Marinades for steak, kabobs and other grilled beef

We love to travel, and with that travel we get to eat… a lot… I’m not sure about you, but some of my strongest memories are  associated with smells or tastes. I will smell plumeria lotion and be taken back to a trip I took to Peru, when I was in high school, and I […]

Pacific Rim Salmon

  I am SOOO boring when it comes to cooking. I love to cook, but I always have this thing in the back of my mind that I don’t want to put effort into a recipe only to find out that Tavis or I do not like it… so I stick to the same old […]
