The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Chili con Queso

Chili Con Queso

Well nothing like following up a Broccoli and Cheese Soup post with another vat of cheese, please don't judge me. This week's Gameday post is Chili con Queso and it reminds me of my childhood, physical restraint could not stop me from devouring this stuff. I'm not exaggerating, I'm pretty sure my brothers tried to physically restrain me, but we won't get into issues from my childhood. I guarantee you that this easy Chili con Queso will be a hit at any party. I'm sure many of you have heard of the standard block of Velveeta and Rotel mixed together which is the base, but I would like to encourage you to mix it up. Add some diced green chilles, ground turkey (chicken or beef for that matter), chorizo, sausage, diced jalepenos, or sauteed onions. It's so easy, whip some up some for a football game or the World Series this weekend!

1 16oz block of Velveeta Cheese
1 10 oz can Rotel (I like using the Mild)
1 4 oz can chopped green chiles
3/4 pound ground turkey, browned
These are the ingredients I used this time, but add the others to the list for variety

Combine all ingredients and warm over medium heat in stovetop pan. Or if you have one of the unnecessary but amazingly convenient little crockpots, that I happened to borrow from my Mom and never gave back (hi Mom!), use it! It's great for keeping it warm during the party. 

Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
