Mexican Meatloaf

Mexican Meatloaf puts a spicy twist on a classic favorite with jalapenos, chili powder & cayenne pepper. This recipe is so delicious & easy to make!

Mexican meatloaf topped with tomato paste, sliced on a white plate with fresh cilantro

While I didn’t grow up loving meatloaf, it’s now one of my favorites! This Mexican Meatloaf was the first meatloaf recipe I ever made back in 2012.

Since then, I’ve created this seriously scrumptious Buffalo Cheesy Meatloaf, the best ever Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf¬†and a Heart Shaped Meatloaf. Because what says “I love you” more than a delicious loaf of meat? ūüėČ

Once I realized that you could kick up a traditional meatloaf with tons of flavor and spice, I was totally down with the classic dish!

I love this Mexican Meatloaf for so many reasons. First, I love Mexican food, so adding Mexican flavors to any dish makes it a win in my book! It’s also loaded with veggies!

For the parents out there, you’re going to love how many veggies are hidden in this meatloaf. Most meatloaf recipes contain two pounds of ground meat. This recipe contains one pound of ground beef and one pound of veggies. Ground turkey can also be used in place of the ground beef for a lower calorie option.

This meatloaf is delicious leftover and you can even turn it into a scrumptious Meatloaf Hash for breakfast! It’s also easy to make gluten free and vegetarian. Check out the recipe notes below to learn how!

Slow Cooker Korean BBQ Meatballs

Korean BBQ meatballs are made with a combination of ground beef & ground pork, then slow cooked in a crock pot in a scrumptious Korean BBQ Sauce for a totally tasty recipe!

Ever since my bestie PK introduced me to Korean BBQ, I’ve been hooked!

Korean BBQ is all about the marinades and sauces. Luckily for you, I’m sharing the most delicious Korean BBQ sauce recipe, along with this meatball recipe! The sauce is sweet and spicy and really easy to make!

I will put this sauce on anything and everything! I make Korean BBQ Salmon by glazing the sauce over fresh salmon on the grill. You can also slow cook chicken in the sauce for Korean BBQ Chicken Tacos.

I sous vide¬†Korean BBQ Short Ribs, then poured the sauce over the short ribs. You can also pour the sauce over ground beef to make easy¬†Korean BBQ Beef Bowls. Seriously, I can’t get enough of this scrumptious sauce!

Thank you to the California Beef Council for sponsoring today’s post!

If you don’t have an Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker by now, it’s time to hop on the bandwagon!

We talked all about electric pressure cookers, sous vide’s and air fryers on the latest episode of the Feed Me! podcast: Hot Kitchen Picks for 2019!

Pressure cooking is a great way to make deliciously flavorful food in a very short amount of time. Take a beef chuck roast and turn it into this amazing French Onion Pot Roast or make the best Beef Ragu in just an hour!

Speaking of the best, this is seriously the best beef stroganoff I’ve ever had! Kurt said that anytime I ask what he wants for dinner from now on, he will say this dish!

I used a beef chuck roast for this recipe, making it a cross between a pot roast and beef stroganoff. The beef is so tender and flavorful, the sauce, so creamy and the egg noodles tie the whole thing together. The best part is, everything cooks in the Instant Pot making clean-up a breeze!

French Onion Dip Tacos

Creamy French onion dip adds a delicious twist to these ground beef tacos! The entire recipe is made in just 20 minutes, for an easy dinner!

Ground beef tacos in crispy shells with shredded lettuce and french onion dip on plate with bowl of french onion dip

In our house, French Onion Dip and chips are always a requirement on the menu for NFL Sundays!  So like any good food blogger, I made my own French Onion Dip Mix and started making homemade dip every Sunday.

Since I now had this delicious French Onion Dip Mix sitting in the pantry, I decided to try it out on other recipes, instead of just dip!

I first tried it out on pot roast and the result was AMAZING! Seriously, French Onion Pot Roast is the best pot roast ever! It was so good, I made it both in a pressure cooker and in a slow cooker.

Next up, I made these French Onion Dip Tacos. The perfect game day food that combines easy ground beef tacos with a seriously delicious dip!

We ate them on game day in crispy shells, then I made them again for dinner during the week and served them on flour tortillas. Both totally tasty options for this seriously easy taco recipe!

On this week’s episode of the “Feed Me” Podcast, we’re talking all about “One Pot Wonders” for fall. From recipes made in one pot on the stove, like Buffalo Taco Spaghetti, to recipes made in a slow cooker, like Pumpkin Chili, to recipes made in a pressure cooker, like Beef Ragu.

Fall is the perfect time to reach for one pot recipes to cook up something warm and delicious! And today I have the most amazing new one pot wonder to share!

I’ve come to the conclusion that I need more tater tots in my life. They’re delicious, crispy little bites of potato goodness that make you feel like a kid again. What’s not to love?!

What is the best way to get more tater tots in your life? A delicious, easy tater tot casserole, of course!

I decided to make my first tater tot casserole with buffalo sauce and cheese. Because let’s be real, buffalo cheesiness is my favorite!

I love buffalo cheesiness in pastas, like this Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne and this Buffalo Cheesy Tortellini. I love it in party food, like these Buffalo Cheesy Sausage Balls, and this Buffalo Cheesy Pizza Bread! I pretty much love buffalo cheesiness in everything!

Slow Cooker Black Pepper Beef and Broccoli

The best black pepper beef and broccoli recipe is made in a crockpot with a delicious Chinese black pepper sauce, then tossed with noodles for a simple slow cooker meal that only takes 10 minutes of prep time!

Black Pepper Beef and Broccoli with rice noodles and scallions on plate with chopsticks

It’s hard to pick the best dish at Tasty Noodle House, our favorite Chinese restaurant in San Diego, but their Black Pepper Beef & Noodles is definitely in the top 3!

While I’ve already recreated some of our favorite Chinese chicken dishes, like Orange Chicken, Honey Chicken and¬†Chinese Lettuce Wraps, it was about time I recreated our favorite Chinese beef dish!

I decided to slow cook the beef in the Chinese black pepper sauce, so that the beef would be extremely tender, with a deep, rich flavor. There’s also no need to marinate the meat, as it cooks in the sauce for hours, so it soaks in all of the sauce!

The great thing is, you can set it and forget it, then toss the noodles and broccoli in at the end.

The sauce will cook the noodles right in the crock pot and the broccoli will be steamed in the slow cooker, so there’s no need for extra pots or pans!

This Taco Ring recipe made with crescent rolls and filled with taco seasoned ground beef, cheddar cheese, bell peppers and onions, is an easy recipe for weeknight dinners, made in under an hour!

Taco ring with crescent rolls on cutting board with ramekin of sour cream topped with tomatoes and jalapenos

Tacos! One of my favorite things to put recipe twists on! Whether it’s Taco Spaghetti, Taco Soup or Taco Dip, I love finding new & different ways to eat tacos!

The Taco Ring was introduced to me when I was 12 years old and my Mom took me to a Pampered Chef party. (And people wonder why I love cooking so much!) We made taco rings at the party and the recipe instantly became a favorite at the Bond house!

Over the years I’ve put my own spin on the taco ring, with a buffalo chicken¬†version and a¬†breakfast¬†version

For this recipe, I kept it classic, but added two of my favorite taco mix-ins, onions and bell peppers!

This crockpot taco soup recipe was one of my favorite dinners that my Mom would make when I was growing up!

Over the years, I’ve made several different versions of the soup, from a One Pot Turkey Taco Soup, to a Vegetarian Black Bean Quinoa Taco Soup, to a Slow Cooker Cheesy Turkey Taco Soup. They’re all delicious, but when I’m in the mood for a taste of home, I always go back to this simple taco soup recipe my Mom used to make!

I live in San Diego, just about 20 minutes from the Mexico border and people here take carne asada tacos very seriously. The key to a great carne asada taco is incredibly flavorful meat and simple, fresh toppings.

I recently joined the brand new podcast “Feed Me!” as a featured guest on their first episode. We chatted about ways to use your slow cooker and Instant Pot in the summer, my favorite comfort food and tips and tricks for cooking with an Instant Pot.

One of my favorite things about the Instant Pot is the fact that you can sear meat directly in the Instant Pot before you pressure cook the dish, so that you’re left with only one pot to clean up after the meal!

While this Instant Pot Beef Ragu recipe is one of my favorite meals and can be eaten year-round, I wanted to try something new, light and fresh for summer, which is why I created this Instant Pot Beef with Tomato Basil Bruschetta.

Want to learn a new cooking technique that’s so easy and makes the most delicious and tender meats?! Time to try sous vide cooking!

I got my first sous vide almost 2 years ago and have been obsessed with it ever since! I regularly make Italian Flank Steak, Sous Vide Sliders and Korean BBQ Short Ribs in the sous vide for weeknight dinners. One of my favorite parts of sous vide cooking is that, like a slow cooker, you can set it and forget it!

It really is as easy as tossing meat and seasonings in ziploc bags, placing them in the sous vide and leaving them to cook for a few hours.

Whole30 Hamburgers are healthy, packed with protein, and gluten free, they're wrapped in lettuce and topped with a sesame scallion sauce for a flavorful meal!

One of the most important aspects of the Whole30 diet is paying attention to labels and buying the best 100% grass-fed, organic meats whenever possible.

During “Whole30 March” I’ve relied on my friends at ButcherBox to fill my fridge with grass-fed beef, free range organic chicken and Whole30 approved bacon.

If you’re not familiar,¬†ButcherBox is a¬†high quality meat subscription service that delivers your choice of beef, chicken, pork, or a combination of meats, right to your door every 30 or 60 days! You can also add items like burgers, uncured sugar free bacon (that’s Whole30 approved and paleo!) and breakfast sausage.

I received my first ButcherBox two years ago, in April 2016, and have been hooked ever since!

Sous vide burger sliders are easy to make, with very little prep, and will result in the most flavorful, juicy burgers you've ever had!

Last week I joined my friends at Cox Communications in Baton Rouge for another “Cox Smart Home” event. I spent the day in the kitchen sharing tips and tricks for how to make your kitchen “smart” by incorporating WiFi enabled devices and appliances into your cooking.

One of the WiFi enabled devices in the smart home kitchen was the Anova WiFi enabled sous vide.¬†I used this device at past events to make Steak Crostini‘s to share with guests of the event, but this time I decided to switch things up!

Since it is football season in Baton Rouge, I decided to serve some of my favorite game day recipes, like¬†Slow Cooker Green Chili Queso Dip¬†and¬†Football Shaped Nutella Rice Krispie Treats. I then decided to make sliders in the sous vide, because they’re perfect for tailgating! Prep the sliders and toss them in the sous vide, remove them from the sous vide, take them to the tailgate, then give them a quick sear on the grill and you’ve got the most delicious and juicy sliders you’ve ever had in your life!

Anyway, I digress, basically what I’m saying here is balsamic roasted cherry tomatoes are BAE!

Creamy Sriracha Beef Enchilada Recipe

It’s been an entire week since my last new recipe post on the blog! Why the long wait for a delicious new recipe you ask?! Because I took my first trip to New Orleans last week with two of my best friends!

I loved the city and the food, and was so inspired to come home and create my own spins on beignets, shrimp and grits and jambalaya!

While this enchilada recipe was not inspired by my trip to New Orleans, it is a recipe I’ve been planning for a while now and I couldn’t wait to get home from my trip to whip it up!

Gluten Free Kung Pao Beef and Noodle Bowl

Gluten Free Kung Pao Beef and Noodle Bowl

For the past two weeks I’ve had a serious craving for Asian food, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, I wanted them all!

Since I’ve already posted recipes for a Japanese seafood favorite, Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice Cakes, a vegetarian Thai favorite, Spicy Vegetable Pad Thai and a delicious Chinese chicken dish, Sweet and Sour Chicken Lettuce Wraps, I figured it was time I got a little beefy with my next Asian creation!

Kung Pao Beef and Noodle Bowl

In the spirit of going “Glutenless in August” I made this traditional Kung Pao Beef recipe gluten-free. I kept the ingredients simple so there’s no need to travel to Chinatown to find ingredients!

Gluten Free Kung Pao Beef Recipe

Instead of placing the beef over rice I used a thick, fettuccine-style rice noodle, similar to what they use at¬†Rama Thai¬†in their Drunken Noodle dish. ¬†If you can’t find these noodles at your local supermarket, any rice noodle will work!

The entire dish only takes 30 minutes to prepare, start to finish, and is so flavorful and delicious, I guarantee it will be on the menu rotation regularly at my house from now on!
