My family has started to boycott sweets. I’m not sure I know who they are anymore!! I mean seriously, how can you live with me and not like sweets? This is boggling my mind for sure!
Ok, fine. I guess if you have sweets around 24/7, it could get pretty old. I still haven’t gotten to that point of not wanting the sweets…although, I’m pretty sure my jeans would love it if I could join the no sweets train a little more often.
Since the sweets I have been making have been going untouched, I need to get back to creating some more savory dishes. This family of mine insists that dark chocolate layer cake just don’t work for dinner. So it’s time to find some more dinner dishes that will get devoured.
The past few weeks we have been pretty boring in the dinner department. Just sticking to a few basic recipes and some takeout has become the new normal.
Well, no more normal. I get tired of the same old dishes all the time, and it makes me want to create something new and exciting.
Although, ask my husband to tell you about the time I decided to get creative with his taco night. Oh, boy! Don’t mess with a hungry hubby and his tacos! He still insists that taco ring is not tacos, but whatever! I still blame that night on my phobia of making dinner. LOL!
This spring I have had the awesome opportunity to partner with Red Gold® as a brand ambassador. It has been exciting to be able to work with a brand that I use regularly in our kitchen.
The care and love of the company shows in every single can you open. Quality tomatoes that make your dishes taste amazing!
This week I decided to get a little crazy in the kitchen. Every once in a while I get that itch to create a fun and different dinner.
My husband’s go to meal at Chili’s is their Monterey chicken. So, I decided to take the flavors of that dinner and give it a Mexican twist. Barbecue chicken, tomatoes, green peppers, and cheese make up the easy filling for these rolls. Then to top them off, they got a thinned down barbecue sauce, tons of bacon, and more cheese on top.
This is an easy dinner to get on the table quickly if you prep some things ahead of time. You could chop the meats and veggies the night before to save some prep time. Even better, you could make this entire dish the night before or the morning of, and then refrigerate it until dinner time. Just remember to set it out about 30 minutes before you put it in the oven, or cover it with foil and bake it a little longer so it can heat all the way through.
Just don’t trip as you walk to the table holding the hot pan…barbecue sauce is a pain to clean off curtains. Although, thank goodness for the enchiladas staying put in the pan, so I could still serve them as dinner!
I may have been holding my breath slightly as I served these Monterey chicken enchiladas to my family. Who knows what they are going to think when I decide to do a crazy dinner idea! Thankfully, most of them enjoyed every bite. Only the youngest snubbed his nose, and he doesn’t count because he would live on Ramen if we let him.
