Holiday Cooking in the South

I can’t believe Thanksgiving already ended. It’s crazy how it just came and went in a flash. I intended on writing an article last week, but I got with everything – mainly cooking and eating delicious food. How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was wonderful!

I can’t believe Christmas is just right around the corner. I am very excited! It’s one of my favorite holidays. I can’t wait to share some yummy recipes with you over the next few weeks.

Do you have any of your favorite dishes or desserts you would like to share?

Now onto the recipe

The weather in Texas during the fall and winter months can be funny and strange. If you have ever lived or visited the state of Texas, then you’ll understand. If not then let me explain the craziness of the weather. On some days it will be hot (the high 80’s) and it will be like that for most of the day. Then there are other days where it’s super cold in the mornings, but throughout the week/day, it gradually will get warmer. Oh, it hardly ever snows here.

So, I admit that it sometimes can be hard to be inspired to cook soups, stew, and chili while living in Texas or pretty much anywhere in the South. I forgot what day it was last week, but the weather was hot for the most of the day, later that evening it was going to be chilly. So that inspired me to cook this Buffalo Chicken Chili.

This recipe is so simple and has only a few ingredients in this slow cooker dinner. Creamy and spicy all in one! It will certainly warm you and family up on a chilly night.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Chili

Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs boneless chicken breasts

2 14.5 oz can great northern beans

1 14.5 oz can fire roasted tomatoes with juice

2 C chicken broth

1/4 – 1/2 C Frank’s red hot buffalo wing sauce

½ tsp onion powder

½ tsp garlic powder

8 oz cream cheese

2. Cover and cook on low for six hours. Cut the cream cheese into small cubes and stir into the slow cooker. Remove the chicken to a cutting board and shred with two forks. Return chicken to the slow cooker.

3. When the cream cheese is melted ladle into bowls and serve. Top with blue cheese crumbles and serve with celery slices if desired. Enjoy! 🙂

Birthday celebration and Buffalo Chicken

I had a real nice and relaxing birthday celebration with my family. We didn’t do anything except for eating. We consumed Chick-fil-A and Torchy’s Tacos and for dessert cupcakes

I am going to be sharing with you Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Wings as I promised. I too had intended to make cucumber salad but I unfortunately didn’t have any cucumbers. Yes, I realized that I could have made a trip to the grocery store but I didn’t feel like it. Do you feel that way too sometimes?

So I decided to make the salad next week instead.

I want say Thank You so very much for your patience with me and the fact that I have not been blogging as much as I usually do.

Anyway, I made a few changes to this crockpot recipe. The first thing I did was to use thighs that I had stored in freezer because I didn’t have any wings. Then I made a change to the liquid. My choice was to use vegetable broth instead of beer because I didn’t have any in my pantry.

Since I made a change to the liquid I actually became nervous about how this recipe was going to turn out. But to my surprise the taste of the chicken went above and beyond my expectations. It was incredibly moist and juicy. Not to mention that it wasn’t to overwhelming spicy.

Do you love Wings and want a super easy way to satisfy your craving without the hassle of cooking them and sweating in your hot kitchen? Well how about you give these Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Wings a try. You will not be disappointed!

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Wings

Ingredients

12-14 whole chicken wings or thighs1¼ c Frank’s Hot Sauce (or favorite hot sauce), divided

1¼ c butter, divided

2. Turn on your broiler. Melt ¼ cup butter into ¼ cup hot sauce and stir until well combined. Spread wings out evenly on a broiler pan and coat generously with sauce

3. Place wings in broiler for four-five minutes, checking constantly so they don’t burn.

Tangy Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

It has been a real long time since I’ve made anything with buffalo chicken. I mean a long time! The time of not having any access to buffalo sauce was so extensive that I have had some serious cravings for it. My favorite brand is Frank’s Buffalo Sauce. I love this stuff because it is not only delicious, but it too has little calories and carbs.

So anyway I finally couldn’t stand the cravings anymore and got my fix by whipping up these tangy Buffalo Chicken Taquitos. They were incredibly easy and relatively quick to prepare, as I used raw chicken breasts. Also, it was a little messy too, but that’s what makes cooking, even more, fun! Right?

Here is my way of how I prepared the chicken. I placed three raw chicken breasts onto a baking sheet and baked them in the oven at 400 degrees F for twenty five minutes. However, if you are low on time or you just don’t feel like doing all of that mumbo jumbo stuff then don’t fret because here are some different options. 1. To have a chicken already cooked in the refrigerator. 2. A rotisserie chicken 3. even canned chicken works with this stuff.

You and your family will enjoy eating these tasty Taquitos for a weeknight supper, or they too would make an excellent finger food for game day.
BAKED BUFFALO CHICKEN TAQUITOS

Ingredients

8 oz low-fat cream cheese or sour cream
⅛ C Frank’s buffalo sauce + extra for dipping
2 C cooked and shredded chicken
12 small flour tortillas (low carb)
Optional Fat-free Ranch Dressing for dipping

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with foil and grease it with cooking spray.

Mix in a large bowl cream cheese and buffalo sauce until well combined. Stir in chicken until well combined. Place three tablespoons of the mixture and spread into a thin line onto the middle of a flour tortilla.

Place the taquito on a lightly greased cookie sheet and repeat for remaining taquitos. Once taquitos is arranged on the cookie sheet, lightly spray the tops with cooking spray. Bake for fifteen-twenty minutes or until the taquitos is golden brown.
