White Chicken Chili ~ creamy, loaded with tender chicken, white beans, corn and green chilies. Topped off with sliced avocado, extra cheese, tortilla strips and sour cream.

As recipes go, this one doesn’t get any easier. Just load the ingredients into your slow cooker then while you’re doing whatever it is you do that brings home the bacon . . .WAH BAM! Thick, creamy, delicious chili loaded with tender chicken, white beans, corn and green chilies. 

Of course, what starts as simple doesn’t have to stay that way. Feel free to dress it up with as many garnishes as you like, including a big dollop of fresh guacamole. 

Make a batch on Tuesday. Eat leftovers on Wednesday (it’s even better reheated). If you’re lucky, there’ll be enough to freeze an individual container for lunch one day when there’s “nothing in the fridge”.

Beef Enchilada Dip ~ spicy ground beef, cheese, black beans, tomatoes, green chilies and enchilada sauce, topped with more cheese and baked ’til bubbly.

The Super Bowl is almost here. Maybe that means you’ll be hosting a few friends and their appetites. Or maybe you got lucky and just need to bring a dish. Something other than your shining personality, though bring that too. Someone has to be the life of the party after all. 

The fact is you should must bring something crowd-approved and usually that means bold spicy flavor, like this Beef Enchilada Dip.

Classic wings are probably already covered, so if you’re serious about bringing your A-Game, I highly recommend Beef Enchilada Dip  . . . or a batch of Jalapeno Poppers. Or both.
