Corn Chowder

4 cups Chicken Broth

6 cups Red Potatoes, Peeled and diced

1/2 onion chopped

1/2 cup diced celery
(I was going to add some red or green pepper, but forgot to buy it)

Cook in large pot on medium heat for 30 minutes or until potatoes are soft.


3 TBSP Butter

1 cup Cooked and chopped Ham or Chicken (I used Ham)

1 cup Frozen Corn (thawed)

2 cans Cream Corn

2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup

1 1/2 cups Shredded Cheese

Combine until hot thought and cheese is melted.

Just before serving add 8 oz of Sour Cream.

I made Corn Bread to go with it. I crumbled the corn bread in my bowl of soup and it was REALLY REALLY YUMMY!!!! Adam and the kids had crackers. Makaila only ate the crackers. :) She's so darn picky and can't have any food that's all mixed together. :)

*Be warned, this made a lot! Had I known it was going to be so good and make so much we would have had all our friends over for dinner. :) It's probably enough to feed about 6 adults and a few kids.

Thai Chicken Peanut Taco

Thai Chicken Peanut Taco

-Organic Chicken, salted and baked and then shredded into large chunks
-Peanut Sauce (I get from a Thai Restaurant since I haven't found the perfect recipe yet.)
-Chili Garlic Hot Sauce (optional, in my opinion)
-Corn Tortilla Shells

For the SALSA
-1/2 cup diced Cucumber
-1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
-1 TBSP Honey
-1 tsp Lime Juice
-1/4 cup chopped Cilantro
-1/4 tsp. Sea Salt

Prepare the Salsa and place in the fridge while you bake the chicken and prepare your tacos.  Can be made the day before.   Bake the chicken until done and let set for 5-10 minutes and then shred into large pieces.  Assemble your taco with chicken, peanut sauce, salsa and chili sauce if desired.

Heat the oil in a large heavy soup pot over medium low heat. Add onions, and cook until soft and they start to turn brown (about 10 minutes). Add the garlic, and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, and oregano and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the beans, stock, and potatoes, and season with salt and pepper . Cook for about 5 minutes, then add the quinoa. Continue cooking for about 15 minutes – 30 minutes, stirring frequently, until quinoa and potatoes are cooked and the chili has thickened. Add a bit of water if the chili becomes too thick for your liking. Top with avocado and chopped cilantro. Scrumptious!

I didn't realize that Adam really likes it, but hasn't had it in a long time and his mom always made it from Hamburger Helper growing up so he Loved this recipe.
