During the colder months, like most people, I love a good slow cooker meal. Especially these days, while working from home, I love the smell of my dinner cooking, and having something warm and comforting waiting for me when I've logged off for the day. The best thing about this chili isn't the warm comforting flavors (though that's definitely a close second), its healthy and easy to throw together, making it perfect for meal prep as well.
I'm definitely a taco person, and I'm definitely a soup person. As the days get shorter, and my dinners get lazier, I tend to rely on my slow cooker a LOT and that means soups, stews and chili. Chicken Tortilla soup is definitely a favorite of mine, and my husbands love of tacos tends to inspire many of my recipes, so this is a great combination of two of our favorite meals. This soup is perfect for a chilly night, but the spicy flavors make this a great soup to be enjoyed year round. The best part? Minimal prep!
If you've ever had Panera's Broccoli Cheddar Soup or Mac and Cheese, you were probably just as excited as I was when they came out with Broccoli Cheddar Mac & Cheese - I don't think there has ever been a more perfect combination in the history comfort foods. After trying Panera's new combination, I decided to try my hand at making my own version. I won't call it a copy-cat, because it's not the same as Panera's version, but it is definitely just as tasty!
This Tuscan Chicken dish is creamy, comforting and filling, perfect for an easy weeknight dinner on a cool fall night. Its so easy to put together and even more tasty, definitely a fall staple in our house! Serve it over rice, pasta, potatoes or by itself - any way you choose will be equally delicious!
