Seems so weird that tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I swear time is just flying by. My cousin shared this Rotel Taco Soup Recipe on her Facebook. She said she had tried it, and it tasted pretty good. The recipe came from Stockpiling Moms
In parenthesis I put what I used to make it just to help. You don’t have to use the same one. Would have to say I agree with my cousin this tasted great. Browned my meat the night before so that it would be quicker to put together before work in the morning. Then before work I just put the meat, beans, rotel, ranch, taco seasoning, and water in the crock-pot. When I got home from work it smelled good. I served it with Light Sour Cream, and Fat Free Cheddar Cheese. Then used Baked Tostitos Scoops chips to eat.
Well unfortunately we are back to a Monday 🙁 Swear the weekends are way to short. Was going through recipes this weekend, and realized I had forgot to repost this recipe when I lost all my old post. Thought it was worth reposting, so here you go.
For a while Jeremy has subscribed to Men’s Health Magazine. He found this chicken cacciatore recipe in the magazine and wanted to give it a try. Figured why not it looked good, and was low in calorie. When we ate it we put it on a bed of rice as you can see in the photo.
This recipe does make a lot of food. You can take as leftovers or cut in half if serving a smaller group. Since it was just Jeremy and I at the house we had leftovers for days.
Where do you usually go for recipes? or what makes you want to try a recipe?
Usually I find my recipes on Pinterest now a days.

P.S I did find a way to retrieve an archive storage of your old post in case you lose them. Would you be interested in knowing how? If so leave me a comment below. Trying to see if worth doing a Tuesday Tutorial on.
What food comes to mind when you think of cold weather? Being from Texas for me it is Chili. Nothing sounds better on a cold day, or when it is snowing out than Chili. Growing up I loved eating Chili Stuff Over Fritos that my mom, and my grandma made. My Mom & Grandma got the recipe from Aunt Pat, and always called it Pat’s Stuff. My mom is a great cook, and this was one of her recipes I had to learn to make. Just mix a bunch of ingredients together, and Viola! Seriously what take the longest time is browning the hamburger meat. It is so quick and easy to make
Now in my pictures you can see this time I made Chili Stuff Over Fritos on the stove.
Sometimes instead of using the stove I use a crock-pot. Just brown the meat the night before then in the morning I dump all the ingredients in the crock-pot before I leave for work, and when I come home the house smells good & dinner is ready.
One of the best kitchen utensils I have bought are my OXO Angled Measuring Cups. These cups are great because you don’t have to look on the side of the cup to see the measurements they show you the measurements on the inside. Bought mine at Bed Bath & Beyond and they were only $19.95 for a 3 piece set that included 4 cup, 2 cup, and 1 cup. The cups are also sold individually. These come in very handy when making Chili Stuff Over Fritos to help measure the milk and water.
Chili Stuff Over Fritos is definitely one of my go to recipes during the winter.

This Chicken Parmesan recipe came from Jeremy’s friend and fellow Fireman that is a chef. Jeremy and the guys on his shift eat pretty well since they have a chef on shift lol. This is a very quick and easy recipe. Since this Chicken Parmesan has no breading which cuts out a lot of calories.
Usually for our side since we have marinara left over we do spaghetti with marinara. Just boil some spaghetti noodles then put marinara over them. Then we put some Texas Toast Light garlic bread with it.
Pretty easy meal to make.
Would love to hear feedback if you try it. What is your favorite low calorie recipe?
