Chicken Enchilada Casserole

You’re going to LOVE this Chicken Enchilada Casserole recipe, made with THE BEST creamy avocado green enchilada sauce! It’s gluten free & easy to make in under 30 minutes! Quinoa adds fiber and protein to this healthy, simple recipe.

All the deliciousness of enchiladas in an easy layered casserole, sign me up! Add in my favorite creamy avocado sauce and you’ve got a winning dinner in under 30 minutes!

The sauce in this casserole really is the star of the show. The first recipe where I introduced the world to this amazing avocado sauce was this recipe for Mexican Stuffed Shells. I really love finding any excuse to crossover Mexican and Italian food!

I then added the avocado green enchilada sauce to these Chicken Enchiladas.  A more classic take on enchiladas and totally delicious! In 2014, I added the sauce to this Taco Pasta Bake. Another Mexican pasta fusion dish, that is still one of my favorite recipes on the blog!

Needless to say, I love this sauce! I love the flavor of it, but I also love how easy it is to make this great recipe! Just toss all the ingredients for the sauce in a blender or food processor. (I use my NutriBullet, because I’m totally obsessed with this kitchen gadget!) Blend and voila, your sauce is ready to go!

For this enchilada casserole recipe, I mixed the sauce with quinoa and shredded chicken for a nutritious meal. Each serving of this chicken enchilada casserole provides 25 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber and is only 443 calories.

Healthy, easy AND delicious, this is one enchilada casserole you’re going to want to eat over and over again!

Buffalo Chicken Tacos

Shredded chicken tossed with tangy buffalo sauce, tucked inside warm tortillas, topped with a creamy cilantro lime sauce, life doesn’t get much better than these Buffalo Chicken Tacos!

This easy recipe is made in just 29 minutes, perfect for weeknight dinners! Take these tacos to an entire other level of buffalo sauciness by serving them with Buffalo Queso Dip!

Over the years, I’ve been given the nickname “The Queen of Buffalo Sauce”. My love of the hot sauce has been apparent since day one on the blog. This recipe for Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne was one of the first recipes I ever posted on the blog. And it was the first of dozens of buffalo sauce recipes that I would share over the years.

Buffalo sauce is flavorful, tangy and low in calories, vegan and gluten free (most brands!) making it a healthy sauce choice. I generally use Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce. I love the flavor and it’s vegan, gluten free and contains ZERO calories!

In this recipe, I’m using buffalo sauce to make homemade Buffalo Chicken Tacos. What’s not to love? First and foremost, they’re tacos and I’ve yet to meet a taco I didn’t love! Second, they’re saucy, flavorful, quick and easy to make!

I served the tacos topped with pepper jack cheese, slaw and creamy cilantro lime sauce. But the great thing about tacos is that you can make them your own. Swap out the pepper jack cheese for blue cheese or the cilantro lime sauce for ranch dressing. Add some avocado or shredded lettuce instead of the slaw.

No matter how you top these tacos, I guarantee they’ll be a hit in your kitchen!

I’ve been making these burgers since 2012 and I seriously never get tired of them! It’s such a fun spin on a traditional cheeseburger and full of flavor!

This burger encompasses everything you think of when you think buffalo wings. Chicken, carrots, celery sticks, buffalo sauce and blue cheese dressing for the win!

You can easily refrigerate or freeze extra burger patties for later. I actually like to double this recipe and make eight buffalo chicken burgers. I grill two immediately, refrigerate two for later in the week and freeze the extra four for later.

If you’re looking to cut down on carbs or go gluten free, serve the burgers wrapped in lettuce. By ditching the bun, you also ditch 22 carbs per serving! All the flavor really is in the burger anyway!

These buffalo chicken burgers are perfect for summer grilling season or football season. They’re also great for a quick and easy dinner anytime. Made in just 29 minutes, you can’t go wrong with this simple, tasty burger recipe!

Cherry Tarragon Chicken Salad Sandwich

Fresh cherries & tarragon add delicious flavor to this easy Chicken Salad Sandwich recipe! It’s made with greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise for a healthy spin on a classic!

Chicken salad on toast on white plate with potato chips

Chicken salad is one of of the easiest things to meal prep and eat throughout the week. It’s a great way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken and this version is both healthy and delicious!

Fresh sweet cherries are available from June through August, but frozen cherries can be found year-round. If fresh cherries can’t be found, simply thaw frozen cherries under cold running water and add them to the salad.

I like to serve my chicken salad sandwich open-faced on sourdough bread. I’ve also used multigrain gluten free bread to make this sandwich gluten fee. And I’ve tried the sandwich on butter croissants, which is Kurt’s favorite way to eat the sandwich!

No matter which way you serve it, the combination of sweet cherries, tart greek yogurt dressing and fresh tarragon, will make this the best chicken salad sandwich you’ve ever had!

Caprese Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Chicken breasts are tossed in a basil pesto marinade, then grilled to perfection and topped with grilled tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cheese in this easy, healthy & totally delicious grilled chicken sandwich recipe!

Pair it with a glass of Grilled Strawberry Lemonade and finish the meal with Grilled Berry S’Mores for a seriously scrumptious meal on the grill!

Grilled chicken sandwich with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese on white plate

Chicken is one of my favorite things to toss on the grill! From chicken skewers, like these popular Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita Skewers, to meatballs, like these Caribbean Jerk Chicken Meatballs. There’s also the option of marinating chicken breasts and tossing them right on the grill, which is what I did in this recipe!

The marinade for this recipe is basil pesto. It’s easy to make my homemade version or just pick up a jar at the store. If you’re buying store-bought, I highly recommend looking in the refrigerator near the deli section of the grocery store.

You can usually find fresh, refrigerated pesto in this section that’s much better than the stuff in jars near the pasta sauce. Some grocery stores even make their own pesto fresh daily!

After tossing the chicken in the pesto, simply grill it up, then top it with grilled tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cheese. Place it on a bun with more pesto and fresh basil leaves and you’ve got a seriously delicious grilled chicken sandwich in just about 30 minutes!

Are you constantly dreaming that Thai food takeout will magically appear in your kitchen for dinner? No, just me? Either way, this recipe for Thai Yellow Curry will give you that delicious, straight-from-your-favorite-Thai-restaurant taste without ever leaving your kitchen! The best news is, it’s made in just 20 minutes!

For a few years now, I’ve been working on perfecting my favorite Thai recipes at home. I successfully created amazing versions of my favorite noodle dishes, Spicy Vegetable Pad Thai and Drunken Noodles. Now it was time to recreate my favorite curry dish!

Yellow Thai Curry is slightly sweet and mild in flavor, but can be kicked up to your desired spice level with the addition of Thai chilies. I use Mae Mae Ploy Yellow Curry Paste, which can be found at some grocery stores, Asian markets or online. I purchase a large container of it, as it will keep in the fridge sealed and covered for up to 2 years.

Out of all the pre-made curry pastes I’ve tried, this one definitely has the best flavor and the most similar taste to what you’d get at a Thai restaurant. It’s also vegan and gluten free, so it’s great for making vegan and vegetarian curries! Using a pre-made curry paste makes this recipe so simple and easy to toss together any night of the week!

Since they closed their doors a few years ago, I’ve been perfecting my own versions of their classic Thai recipes. After dozens of recreations of their Drunken Noodles, I’ve finally made the perfect recipe for Drunken Noodles!

While the recipe is quite simple, getting the perfect Drunken Noodles sauce is really the key to this noodle dish. The sauce is so flavorful and slightly spicy. In this recipe, I’ll share how to adjust the spice to your preference!

This Lean & Green Superfood Smoothie is my go-to in the mornings! And I could eat these Creamy Avocado Corn Enchiladas every week!

For this salad, I added a whole sliced California avocado with quartered cherry tomatoes and grilled pesto chicken. I used homemade Basil Pesto for the pesto chicken, but store-bought works also!

This salad is bursting with flavor! It can be served with the chicken hot or cold, as an entree or side dish. You can easily toss the salad together while meal prepping and divide it up for lunches throughout the week.

Gluten Free General Tso’s Chicken

Gluten Free General Tso Chicken is easy to make in only 20 minutes! This recipe is healthy & even better than Chinese takeout with the most delicious General Tso sauce!

Gluten free general tso chicken with red chili peppers and green onions on white plate with wood chopsticks

In the blogging world, I’d say that I’m most known for my recipes with buffalo sauce. But coming in at a close second are my gluten free Chinese recipes!

Around the same time I started blogging, my brother was diagnosed with celiac disease. He asked me to recreate some of his Chinese food favorites to make them gluten free.

Being the wonderful sister that I am (haha!) I obliged and created some of his favorite recipes. This Gluten Free Orange Chicken is his all-time favorite. But these recipes for Gluten Free Honey Chicken and Gluten Free General Tso Chicken, both come in at a close second!

Typically, general tso’s consists of battered, deep fried chicken thighs, covered in hoisin sauce. I made this recipe healthy and gluten free by lightly pan frying the chicken, instead of deep frying it. I also used chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs.

Chicken breast meat is lower in calories and fat, creating a healthier dish. I switched up the general tso sauce recipe to give it a similar taste to hoisin without the gluten.

The sauce is slightly spicy and so delicious! It’s so good that I’ve also used it to make General Tso’s Vegetarian Noodle Stir Fry and General Tso’s Chicken Wings.

You can actually double, or triple, the sauce ingredients in this recipe. Keep the extra sauce on hand to make more chicken, noodle stir fry or chicken wings throughout the week. The sauce will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 5-7 days.

Needless to say, if you’re gluten free, you don’t have to miss out on your favorite Chinese restaurant favorites anymore!

Instead of battering the chicken in flour, I batter it in cornstarch. And instead of deep frying the chicken, I stir fry it on the stove. I use gluten free soy sauce to make the best orange sauce ever!

Out of all the recipes I’ve ever made on the blog, this is my brothers favorite recipe! The best part is, it’s made in just 29 minutes. It’s easy enough to whip up for dinner tonight!

My friends at Cabot Cheese have helped me make recipes deliciously cheesy for several years now!

Cabot is a co-operative owned by 1,000 farm families throughout New England & New York. That means 100% of their profits go back to the farmers! This year Cabot is celebrating their 100th year as a co-operative.

Back in 2015, I flew back east and visited a Cabot farm. I got to meet the cows and ran a race as part of the “Cabot Fit Team”. You can read all about it in this post for Chipotle Maple Chicken SlidersAnd check out pictures of the totally cute baby cows!

In this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls, I use Cabot’s Vermont Sharp Cheddar cheese. It is the perfect complement to the buffalo chicken.

A lot of inspiration for new recipe creation comes from suggestions by friends or family members. “Oh hey, I really love this dish, but can you make it healthier?” or “I’ve been looking for a good recipe for this or that.”

When it comes to gluten free recipe inspiration, I always turn to my brother, Tyler. He is gluten-intolerant and my original inspiration for adding gluten free recipes to the blog!

While on a recent road trip together, I asked my brother what new gluten free recipes he’d like to see on the blog. He said that he would love to see a Chinese Honey Chicken Recipe, as his favorite recipe of all time on the blog is this Gluten Free Orange Chicken.

His wish is my command! Today I’m excited to introduce this Gluten Free Chinese Honey Chicken recipe with a delicious honey sauce. It’s guaranteed to become a new family favorite!

Thai peanut sauce and roasted sweet potatoes, tomato basil bruschetta and grilled chicken, and now Thai coconut soup and potstickers!

Whenever we go out for dinner, there’s an 8 out of 10 chance I’m going to try to convince Kurt to go to Koon Thai. It’s my favorite Thai restaurant and one of my overall favorite restaurants in San Diego!

They make the most delicious pan fried roti bread, curries and noodle dishes. They also make the best Tom Kha soup I’ve ever had! After our last visit, I decided it was time to try making my own Tom Kha soup at home.

What is Tom Kha Soup?

Tom Kha soup is a Thai coconut soup. It’s made with coconut milk, lemongrass, Thai chili peppers, cilantro, mushrooms, fish sauce and lime juice. While it’s typically made with chicken, you can also find versions with shrimp, pork or tofu.

What is the difference between Tom Kha and Tom Yum Soup?

Tom Yum Soup is made with a base of boiled meat, such as shrimp or pork, water and herbs. It is sour and spicy in flavor. Tom Kha Soup is made with a coconut milk base and is more sweet and spicy in flavor, than sour.

Honey Bunches of Oats Chicken Strips are deliciously sweet & crispy! They can be baked in the oven or fried on the stove for an easy dinner recipe!

Honey bunches of oats fried chicken strips on plate with a ramekin of honey mustard dressing on yellow and white striped towel

For this recipe, I took my Dad’s Famous Captain Crunch Fried Chicken and gave it a twist by using Honey Bunches of Oats cereal instead of Captain Crunch cereal and baking the chicken instead of frying it.

Well, I actually baked half and fried half, because I like options! 😉

Our house was divided on their favorites between the fried and the baked. My Mom liked the fried better, Kurt liked the baked better and I just couldn’t chose, they’re both so good!

Baking the chicken brings out more of the Honey Bunches of Oats flavor, while frying it gives it that crunchy on the outside, juicy on the inside deliciousness that we all know and love!

Either way, you can’t go wrong!

Heck, bake half and fry half like I did and do the taste test yourself!

All of these fresh ingredients combine to make a salsa worthy of eating straight from the spoon!

Instant Pot BBQ Chicken is easy to make with chicken breasts, directly from the freezer or refrigerator, plus a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce. Use it to make different recipes throughout the week, from pasta for dinner, to wraps for lunch!

The very first recipe I posted after joining the Instant Pot revolution in January was a simple recipe for Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken. Seriously it’s buffalo sauce + chicken y’all, so simple! The thing I love about it is that you can make a big ol’ Instant Pot of it at the beginning of the week and use it for different recipes throughout the week.

With everything from Buffalo Chicken Taco Cups to Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne, it’s like you’re getting an entirely new meal every night, but made in no time with the Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken you made earlier in the week!

I now took this concept and made Instant Pot BBQ Chicken. Same simple two ingredient recipe, chicken breasts + bbq sauce, made into so many meal possibilities throughout the week!

Classic chicken marsala is given a fun twist in this recipe for Chicken Marsala Meatballs made by cooking pork and chicken meatballs in a creamy mushroom marsala sauce!

We love meatballs around our house! From Thai Peanut Turkey Meatballs served over rice, to Buffalo Honey Mustard Meatballs for gameday, to One Pot German Meatballs & Potatoes for an easy meal, there’s no shortage of meatball meals in our house!

One of my tricks for creating the perfect meatball is to combine two different meats. For this recreation of chicken marsala, I made pork and chicken meatballs. When using a lean protein like ground chicken breast, you want to combine it with a protein with a slightly higher fat content, like ground pork or beef.

It’s the 1st of March and also the first day of “Whole 30 March” on the blog! I decided to share a month of Whole 30 recipes for a few reasons. I wanted to create new healthy recipes both for the blog and for my weekly menu.

There have been several friends and followers that have requested Whole 30 recipes on the blog. And I realized that you could have buffalo sauce (certain brands, of course!) while eating Whole30 and then I was in!

I’ve never been a “diet” person but I do believe in balancing healthy, clean eating along with indulgent meals. A well rounded diet let’s you enjoy the foods you love, along with making sure you eat your peas and carrots!

The Whole 30 recipes I’ll be sharing this month are not just for those on the Whole30 diet. These recipes, like Balsamic Salmon Zoodle Bowls, Turkey Taco Salad and Chipotle Chili Sweet Potatoes, are perfect for those with gluten or dairy allergies. All of the recipes are made with real food and are free of legumes, grains, dairy and sugar.

I spent a lot of time developing recipes that fit within Whole30 compliance, but also taste great. You’ll never feel like you’re missing out on a really great homemade meal when you make these recipes!

There’s nothing I love more than firing up the grill for dinner on warm summer nights and weekend BBQ’s!

This weekend we put our first offer in on a house (eeeeek!) It’s so exciting and terrifying at the same time. This house needs A LOT of work, so I’ve been putting some serious spreadsheet skills to use creating a list of all the work that needs to be done, a timeline for the renovation and budgeting.

Even though it seems totally unnecessary, one of the things at the top of my list is an outdoor patio addition. I love entertaining, especially outdoors in San Diego, so this is really important to me!

After living in an apartment for almost a year without having a space to entertain outside (or really inside for that matter!) I can’t wait to get in the new house (fingers crossed!) and fire up the grill for that first outdoor BBQ!

In case you weren’t counting, that’s four days of fun every single week in 2017!

This 30 Minute Indian Butter Chicken recipe is a quick & easy twist on a classic Indian dish that's perfect served with cilantro rice & garlic naan!

Put your hands up if butter chicken is your go-to order at Indian restaurants! You too? I’m seriously obsessed with it!

Every time we go to our favorite Indian restaurant, Kurt and I order butter chicken and like 5 sides of Naan, because there’s garlic naan, onion naan, cilantro naan, and obviously we need one (or two) of each to sop up all of that scrumptious butter chicken sauce!

This Buffalo Chicken Bake Recipe is a recreation of the Costco Chicken Bake with a buffalo sauce twist, it's so easy to make & totally delicious!

I didn’t grow up near Costco, so it wasn’t until a recent trip that I discovered the infamous Costco Chicken Bake.  This signature dish at the Costco food court is filled with chicken breast strips, mozzarella, provolone and parmesan cheeses, bacon, caesar dressing and green onions.

I took this dish and put my own “Buffalo Style” spin on it with blue cheese dressing, carrots, celery and of course, buffalo sauce!

Bruschetta Chicken Parmesan Recipe

When it comes to comfort food, I think of recipes I grew up with in Oklahoma, biscuits and gravy, mac and cheese and my Dad’s fried chicken. Now that I’m living a healthier lifestyle in California, I’ve had to redefine comfort food.

New comfort food to me is incorporating some of the aspects of the old comfort food favs in new, healthier, yet still totally delicious, ways!

For example, using spaghetti squash instead of pasta in Mac & Cheese, like in this recipe for Cheesy Jalapeno Popper Spaghetti Squash, or going the other direction and using butternut squash to make the sauce in Mac & Cheese creamier with the use of less cheese, like I did in this recipe for Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese.

Sweet & Sour Chicken Fried Rice Recipe

Man, oh man, the last month has been absolutely insane! I started the moving process at the beginning of August and after 3 weeks I was totally moved-in. I’m now officially living in my new little beach house with the worlds best boyfriend! (I might be slightly biased! 😉 )

Of course, two days later was the boyfriends birthday, so that entire weekend was spent at Dave Matthews Band Concerts, steak dinners, country bars and beach picnics!

Two days after that, I was cooking and Snapchatting live from the Cox Smart Home event. It was a super cool event showing how to use their Gigablast High Speed Internet throughout your home using smart appliances.

I was, of course, using their internet to post live from the event. I was also feeding the attendees delicious Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies, Bacon Wrapped Dates, Fig & Brie Puff Pastry Bites and Antipasto Skewers.

Once I wrapped that event up, two days later I was hanging out on San Diego 6 News sharing my favorite recipes for game day!

Then it was Labor Day weekend and college football of course!

So now, finally this week, I’m back in the kitchen cooking up new recipes in my new kitchen! This new kitchen also happens to be the worlds smallest kitchen!  (Y’all pray for me for the next 6 months while I cook in this teeny tiny kitchen while we look for a house to buy!)

With a new smaller kitchen, I’m trying to keep the dishes to a minimum. This means more One Pot Dishes than ever coming your way, starting with this scrumptious One Pot Sweet & Sour Chicken Fried Rice!

I was excited by the idea of Caribbean Jerk Chicken & Pork Meatballs, but the actual result was even better than I imagined!

If you haven’t tried Caribbean Jerk Seasoning before, it’s a Jamaican hot spice mixture, generally rubbed on pork or chicken. In this meatball recipe I combined both pork and chicken with a Jamaican Jerk Seasoning Paste that I have absolutely fallen in love with!

When I partnered up with ALDI to share four tasty recipes from their Test Kitchen and Bon Appétit, I was so excited to see that they were all gluten free!  I couldn’t wait to try their liveGfree® gluten free baking and cupcake mixes, and sample their fresh meat and produce!

Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Zoodle Bowls

Fresh, light and healthy, these Bruschetta Chicken Zoodle Bowls are perfect for easy meal prep. And great for those on a gluten free or low carb diet. The balsamic marinated grilled chicken is served over zucchini noodles with fresh tomato bruschetta on top, for a seriously flavorful meal!

With over 6 MILLION views on Facebook and 130,000 shares on Pinterest, the people have spoken, these Bruschetta Chicken Zoodle Bowls are a hit! And If you love these zoodle bowls, you’re also going to love these popular recipes for Thai Peanut Buddha Bowls and Veggie Fajita Rice Bowls!

Tomato bruschetta on top of sliced grilled chicken breast in bowl with zucchini noodles

Bowls in the food world are the equivalent to Game Of Thrones in the TV world, SO HOT RIGHT NOW! If you google “Bowl Trend In Food” you’ll find dozens of articles about how “Bowls Are The New Plates”. Yes, that’s actually the title of an article from The Wall Street Journal!

This is one food trend that I’m not upset about at all! You can pack a lot of healthy ingredients into a bowl, while also adding a ton of flavor to make it super tasty!

A few weeks ago I hopped on the trend with a delicious recipe for Thai Peanut Pineapple Veggie Rice Bowls. Although technically I was ahead of the trend with my Gluten Free Kung Pao Beef & Noodle Bowl that I introduced in 2013!

Today I’m sharing a new chicken recipe that incorporates one of my favorite cooking methods, grilling, into the trendy new bowl phenomenon! Bruschetta plus chicken, equals a match made in heaven! Combine the two on top of fresh, healthy zucchini noodles and you’ve got one winning bowl recipe!

The olive oil, balsamic vinegar and tomato juice from the bruschetta act as a dressing on the zucchini noodles. And the pieces of tomato add a burst of freshness and flavor to every bite!

If you have time in the morning, toss the chicken in the marinade. (Don’t worry, it will take less than 5 minutes!) In the evening, toss the chicken on the grill and mix up the bruschetta. Spiralize some zucchini and scrumptious grilled chicken zoodle bowls await you!

Yesterday was the 6 month anniversary of my first date with Kurt!

Over the last 6 months we’ve traveled through two countries, multiple states and several cities, we’ve attended an Elite Eight basketball game, beer festivals and music festivals, spent holidays together and overall, just had a whole lot of fun!

While I love everything we do together, I still have to say that one of my favorite things is cooking for him!

The first meal I ever made him was Three Cheese Manicotti with Italian Sausage Marinara. I had been taking notes since our first date of the things he liked and he mentioned that manicotti was his favorite meal, ricotta was his favorite cheese and how much he loved Italian sausage. I combined all of these things into what is still his favorite dish that I cook for him!

A few weeks back I was doing some serious recipe planning for the upcoming months. I sat down and brainstormed new recipes for 6 hours straight.

Let me tell you how hungry one gets after recipe brainstorming for 6 hours straight, very hungry, only to realize that all of the recipes I’d been creating in my mind over the last 6 hours were not reality yet and I had nothing to eat for dinner. Such a buzz kill, lol!

Luckily over the next couple of weeks, all of the recipes did become a reality and some very delicious dinners were eaten, this Buffalo Chicken Dip Pizza being one of those!

Living in San Diego, we have a very interesting view of what “cold weather” is, but last week parts of northeast San Diego actually saw SNOW, which is practically unheard of in San Diego!

On New Years Eve I flew back to San Diego after spending the holidays in Oklahoma with my family. I planned on returning home from the 19 degree temperatures of Oklahoma to 75 and sunny in San Diego. That was not quite the case.

It was definitely “San Diego cold” meaning below 50 degrees at night, which meant it was time for me to whip up something warm to eat!

Sriracha Lime Chicken Recipe

Since transitioning to “Fit Whit” over the last two months (AKA so much eating as a food blogger = need to hit the gym!) I’ve been looking for ways to incorporate healthy-er meals at home in between food blog recipes & eating out.

One of my favorite go-to, easy dinner meals is a burrito. Fill it with whatever goodies I have in the fridge, wrap it up in a giant tortilla and dig in!

While “Fit Whit” will not be giving up burritos anytime soon, I figured a great, easy, go-to alternative would be burrito bowls.

Whip up some delicious chicken on Monday, put it in the fridge, then use it in burrito bowls all week long. Enter: Sriracha Lime Chicken.

Ok, after this recipe I promise to take a “pumpkin hiatus” …. at least for a week!

Some would call me a basic …. well you get it … for my intense love of pumpkin, but I don’t care, pumpkin everything, all day, every day!

When it comes to fall, I want to incorporate pumpkin into basically as many dishes as possible. Well that and buffalo sauce, but not together, I’m not that crazy!

Since I’m not a big sweets person I like to incorporate pumpkin into savory recipes like Pumpkin Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie, Pumpkin Pulled Pork, Pumpkin Chili & Pumpkin Enchiladas!

Chili Lime Chicken Taco Lettuce Cups

It’s been 6 weeks since I started going to the gym on a daily basis (sometimes even two-a-days!) I’m just wondering why I don’t have JLo’s abs yet? Um, what’s up? Maybe it has something to do with my obsession with tacos, cheese and delicious craft beers during football games! 😉

Let’s be honest, I work out, so that I can continue to enjoy these delicious treats of life and keep a somewhat JLo-esque figure!

While I’m not willing to give up my favorite foods, such as tacos, I am willing to make them a little healthier, and that’s where I came up with this idea for chicken tacos in lettuce wraps.

All of the delicious taco filling without the extra carbs from the tortilla!
