Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

These peppers are stuffed with turkey, quinoa, beans, corn, and lots of flavor!

My family probably gets annoyed with how much I love stuffed peppers, but I do! I don't really have a rhyme or reason and they probably wouldn't say anything if the peppers were cut up and I made a casserole of sorts instead. But they deal with it because I love it and I'm the one making dinner. :) I personally really enjoy this recipe because it reminds me of a crockpot quinoa recipe that I sometimes make for Taco Tuesdays - in fact, I'm making it in May. Love that there is more than just quinoa and meat.

Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo Sandwiches

Rich chicken alfredo flavors served up with sundried tomatoes, parmesan, and spinach on a hamburger bun.

I really liked this recipe but I did modify it slightly because I feel like the storebought alfredo sauce got watered down with the slow cooking. I drained off the little excess liquid and tossed the cooked chicken with more alfredo sauce. You can do sundried tomatoes or roasted grape tomatoes. I think I'd prefer adding parmesan to the actual end product rather than serving it on top. All-in-all, a really good recipe that you can adjust to your liking.

Spicy Chicken Salad Wraps

When you want a quick meal with loads of flavor and a kick of heat!

Occasionally, I put wraps on the meal plan and it's often for days I know are going to be super busy. I really liked this recipe because a lot of the flavor comes from the dressing which is one of my all-time favorites: Caesar! We loaded ours up with all the fixings and they were so great. I love the croutons especially so you get a good bit of crunch!

Ratatouille Pasta

The classic French vegetable dish turned into an amazing sauce for a meatless pasta meal!

I have never had ratatouille but I really wanted to try it and I took the opportunity to try it when Nick was away for army training because it's meatless. The kids were not the biggest fans of it because they don't like eggplant and only Cami likes zucchini. I, however, enjoyed it a ton because it's a pasta dish with a bunch of fresh veggies. I definitely want to try actually ratatouille at some point, so if anyone has a tried and true recipe for it - point me to it!!

Spicy Chicken & Avocado Tacos

A super simple chicken taco recipe loaded up with avocado and creamy cilantro lime sauce.

So I initially had this post almost ready to go and then realized that I remember making these and looking at it and going...where's the heat? How is it spicy? So when I did the marinade, I chose to add cayenne. Otherwise there is literally nothing that adds any bit of spiciness to the recipe. This is a really simple way to make chicken tacos and has lots of bright flavor from the lime. I love the creamy cilantro lime sauce a ton.
