A stuffed, roasted, fresh poblano pepper with a flavorful mixture of beef, beans and cheese. We made extras and they were great left over.
A black bean base, zingy pickled jalapeños, roasted tomatoes, what’s not to love about this?!?
Just a little dab of bacon fat and a parmesan rind really round out this dish. It has a bright finish.
This flavorful stew was a great way to finish off the cold and snowy day. Rich, warm, Indian flavors come together with lots of nutrient-packed veggies for a dish that’s both tasty and healthy.
I know it sounds like blasphemy, but we actually had beef short ribs left over. I decided to add them to this lovely Turkish-inspired soup and it was a home run!
This is a really lovely meal to make on a cold and snowy day. We had it over rice for dinner, then when we reheated it for lunch the next day we had it without and it was equally as good. Even though it starts with a couple of pieces of bacon, it’s a fairly lean recipe. The Cotija cheese is a bright pop of flavor on top and the cilantro really finishes it.
So many great flavors come together in this spicy, hearty soup. The yogurt crema tops it off perfectly.
Another idea that stemmed from making so much smoked pork stock and carnitas. And as pictured, it’s a tasty breakfast or brunch option with an egg on top.
