I tried a few new recipes this weekend and I’m happy to say
they were all winners!
The first one is “Cha-Cha’s White Chicken Chili” that I found HERE.
It’s a bit on the spicy side, but I like spicy, so it was a hit here at the house.
I’ll definitely be making it again! I did make one change and subbed a can
of corn for one of the cans of white beans….I doubled the recipe, because
having left-overs and having a night where you can just reheat something
is aces in my book!
To go with it, I also tried these “Cornbread Tamale Bites with Jalapeno Cheese and Bacon”
Here are mine before going into the oven….can’t you just see all the
cream cheese goodness?
Here they are, coming out of the oven….
Yes Virginia, bacon really DOES make everything better!
These are basically cornbread muffins, topped
with cream cheese, cheese, green onions, jalapeno and bacon.
Serious YUM factor! Now I’m a girl who likes spicy
and when I make them again, I would cut the amount
of jalapenos in half, or if you don’t like spicy, you could
just leave them out altogether….you really have
to try these!
*Note, the muffins stuck to the paper cupcake liners, but not the
foil ones….in the original recipe she uses corn husks which make
them super cute!
So that is the yin and yang of recipes….healthy chicken chili
paired with a decadent muffin…balance my friends!
