Chorizo Jalapeño Chili

It’s (almost) officially chili season and I couldn’t be happier. As much as I love light, refreshing summer dishes, there is nothing like a hearty, comforting meal on a crisp fall day!

I previously shared my original chili recipe here but since returning from a recent trip to Portugal I was inspired to spice things up a bit with this batch by adding ground chorizo to my beef mixture.

Chorizo was definitely one of my favorite things to eat in Portugal I love how they prepare it on a flaming grill (I think the official name is Chourico a Bombeiro). Anyways, while doing our first grocery shop after the trip, I was planning on making Chili, and as soon as we came across the Chorizo, it was destined to go in the mix.

Whipped Feta Dip

I seriously can’t believe how quickly this summer is coming to an end. It went by way to fast, but not without great food! I’ll be kicking off September in beautiful Portugal but didn’t want to leave you hanging without a crazy good appetizer to make for your long weekend plans.

This whipped feta dip is something from heaven, let me tell you! And I have to give a shoutout to the talented Salt and Lavender for inspiration. She is one of my favorite foodies on Instagram, so I knew I had to try the recipe as soon as I saw it. And now, I am sharing it with you.

Pampered Chef Fall Faves

I have to admit, before a couple weeks ago, when I thought of Pampered Chef my mind automatically went to house parties where hosts invite friends to buy new kitchen tools and gadgets. BUT that quickly changed when I had the chance to preview their fall line and learn about how the company has transformed in the digital age.

A lot of hosts have taken to the digital world, using websites and social media, to capitalize on online shopping habits. This of course seems super obvious. However for me it was a great reminder of the opportunities the digital world brings to businesses and entrepreneurs alike. I was so excited to hear that a company I once thought of as traditional was making waves in the digital era. SO in honor of making some new friends at Pampered Chef, I thought I would share a some of the kitchen toys that caught my eye from their Fall preview!

Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

If you are looking for an easy summer lunch or dinner, you’ve come to the right place. These chicken salad lettuce wraps are super low maintenance and easy to whip together for a healthy, light meal. I either make it with leftover bbq chicken breast or if I’m lazy (hey we all have our days), I’ll grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.

Pineapple Stuffed with Cauliflower Fried Rice

This pineapple stuffed with cauliflower chicken fried rice was a huge hit on my Instagram so I figured I had to get it on the blog for you ASAP. I’ve made ‘chicken fried’ cauliflower rice before, but this time I added a couple of new ingredients AND of course used pineapple as the bowl, because why not?!
