One pan Tortellini Primavera. Loads of veggies and as can be seen, super easy to make. I don’t make many stove top meals because I feel like dinner should be able to cook without standing over and stirring. This recipe happens too be an acceptation to the rule. Just let it simmer for 20-30 minutes.
Hawaiian Chicken Tacos!!!!
Where have these been all my life? Tacos are a food group in my house. We have an unnatural love for them. Maybe it is a Texan thing. They are on our table weekly, sometimes daily so the thought of putting pineapple in chicken tacos made me go hum…..BUT, I was pleasantly surprised. It gives them such a different flavor. Kinda sweet. I had to pile my peppers on my individual taco because some people in this house who shall remain nameless, can’t take the heat but if you tossed a few in while it cooked, oh my goodness that would be good.
Everything gets piled in the pot in traditional 5 dinners style. Cook all day and all you need to do when you get home is shred the meat and cook the corn in the microwave. Dinner can be on the table in less than 10 minutes.
I like to char my tortillas over the stove top open flame. Just takes a few seconds to crisp them up a bit.
I piled my corn onto my taco instead of eating it as a side dish. Mo taco, mo betta!
Make this for dinner and you won’t miss take out or drive thru one bit!
Enjoy Mi Amigos!!!
This may be even better than Olive Garden Gnocchi Soup! Plus you know exactly what is in it. WHOLE FOODS! No hidden yucky stuff. I used chicken instead of sausage like OG does. Still ohhh so good and just a bit leaner. Only a bit though.
So easy to prep ahead. Just pour into the slow cooker in the morning and let it do all the work.
I hoarded the leftovers so I could eat it again for lunch the next day. It was SO GOOD!
If mushrooms are not your thing, you can always omit them and double the garlic and gnocchi. Hmmm. Now that I say that, I’m thinking I want that variation next time. Bring on the fall weather so I can make this again!

I always skin the chicken legs before seasoning. Keeps them leaner and less gooey. No one likes a gooey leg.
The jerk seasoning is so good. Go light on the jerk if you have small kids. It can be spicy and different brands can vary is spiciness. After cooking all day the meat just falls off the bone. It is so tender.

Slow Cooker Sour Cream Enchilada Casserole!!!
I love enchiladas. I L.O.V.E. love them. Especially sour cream chicken enchiladas. They can be a bit labor intensive so I made them into more of a casserole. This easy to make Slow Cooker Sour Cream Enchilada Casserole will cure your ills!!
You prep ahead, if you want, then just toss in the slow cooker and mix well.
Cook for only 3-4 hours because it uses cooked chicken so your just baking it through. Great for Sunday brunch!
I could eat the whole pot! I won’t. Not in one sitting anyway. I hoarded some for lunch the next day….and the day after.
Use a mild green salsa. Be sure to find mild unless your family can take the heat.
Not the most glamorous but man it tastes so good!
