Tia Rita’s Green Chile Seasoning

Tia Rita’s Green Chile Seasoning

First if all, let me talk about my Scandal obsession. Seriously, why have I just now gotten on board with this show?! It definitely sucked me in and I’ve been bingewatching it on Netflix since last Thursday. It rained on and off all weekend and all day Memorial Day, so I had the perfect excuse to be in front of the tv all day. My mom has been telling from the start that I should watch and I’d always tell her it’s just not for me. But now I. Can’t. Stop. Watching. Part of me wants to finish watching the series, so I can get on with my life. But part of me doesn’t want it to end because I’ll have to wait until the fall for next season. #stayathomemomproblems #ireallydohavebiggerthingstoworryabout All right. Now that that’s off my chest…linking up with Andrea for Recipe Club! Today’s post isn’t exactly a recipe, but  a new MUST HAVE for your spice cabinet. The flavor of the month at our house seems to be green chile seasoning. It is salt free and the level of spice can vary depending on how much you use. I’m all about FLAVOR not just heat, so this seasoning does the trick. I’m still nursing and it doesn’t seem to affect baby, so I’m thinking it’s probably kid-friendly too. My husband and I fell in love with THIS seasoning on a trip to New Mexico two years ago. We stayed at our friend’s house and found this seasoning in the kitchen and decided to give it a shot. It was LIFE-CHANGING! I don’t know if it was the...
My husband’s favorite dinner…Beer Roast

My husband’s favorite dinner…Beer Roast

I am NOT the cook in the family. I have one meal that I make REALLY well…like impress people when they come over really well. I CAN cook and bake. I just don’t like to…but my husband LOVES it (I’m not even being sarcastic). My husband cooks 6 out of 7 days of the week. Yes, I know how fortunate I am. I love this man for many, many reasons. The fact that he cooks is definitely at the top of the list. So since I hardly ever cook, I had to take a picture to commemorate the event. Wearing my husband’s apron to channel his cooking skills while I make his favorite meal. This is one of those meals that simmers on the stove all day and makes the house smell A-MAZ-ING! Great to throw on the stove after church for a comforting Sunday meal. It’ll also give you plenty of leftovers for lunch or another dinner during the week.
