Mexican Street Corn Salad w/Zucchini

Mexican Street Corn Salad w/Zucchini ~Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #Mexican #salad #recipe

Adapted from Jo Cooks and Caroline’s Cooking An easy, “no cook” version of the popular Mexican Street Corn salad. If you’ve not seen it all over the interwebs, I’ve seen many versions of it floating about, in different forms. I wanted to try it the instant I saw it so my eyes were tuned to watch […]


Mango Sunrise Margaritas

Mango Sunrise Margaritas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #CincoDeMayo #Cocktail #recipe

This Mango Sunrise Margarita is a light, sparkly cocktail with fruity mango and a little tingle from club soda, lime, and the tiny hint of chipotle both on the rim and in the drink. The splash of grenadine adds a bit of sweet and a festive sunrise effect in the bottom of the glass. It’s […]


Long Live the Modern Taco Salad!

My favorite salad of all time … shredded slow-cooked bourbon chipotle pork, crispy Romaine lettuce, shredded  Mexican cheese, chopped sweet peppers and avocado, black beans, corn and Nacho cheese Doritos with cashew cilantro salsa and Sriracha Ranch dressing. (salsa and dressing not pictured) This recipe is a takeoff copycat recipe from a favorite restaurant that […]


Three-Cheese Broccoli Potato Soup

Three Cheese Broccoli Potato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #broccoli #potato #soup #recipe

If you can’t decide whether you want Broccoli Cheddar Soup or Cheesy Potato Soup, why not have both in one bowl? This is a soup that tastes oh so super creamy and rich and cheesy with all the comfort of potato soup AND the rich cheesiness of Broccoli cheddar soup, but with a surprising healthy twist and a […]


Smoky Broccoli Beer Cheese Soup

Smoky Broccoli Beer Cheese Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #broccoli #beer #cheese #soup #recipe

. A beautiful creamy beer cheese soup with lovely chunks of broccoli and a nice hint of smoke from smoked paprika and chipotle.

A creamy butternut squash soup that balances the sweetness of the squash with the salty smokiness of bacon, shredded Gruyere cheese, fresh sage and a bit of chipotle pepper to make it dance on your tongue.

Spicy Smoky Salt-Free Chex Mix

Spicy Smoky Salt-Free Chex Mix ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #snackmix #recipe

A surprisingly scrumptious spicy crunchy snack mix, full of protein and totally free of any added butter or salt. I made this snack mix with olive oil and a mix of spices from my cupboard. Because I was making this for someone special who has to very carefully watch his sodium, I avoided anything salty […]


Chipotle Cowboy Caviar

Chipotle Cowboy Caviar ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cowboy #caviar #recipe

Recently we had our annual United Way fundraising drive at work. Our CEO came around and talked to us personally, at each team in the company, to challenge us to increase our donation this year by $2 per week. Being the analytical type of person that I am, I did the math. $2 per week […]

Jack Daniels Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

Jack Daniels Chipotle Barbecue Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #homemade #bbq #sauce #recipe

Years and years and years ago, in another lifetime, it seems, I used to travel to Tennessee for work. The guys that I traveled with loved to visit the distilleries in Tennessee … and even though I don’t drink whiskey (after a rather nasty episode with whiskey in my younger years), I discovered that I […]


Smokin’ Chipotle Pimento Cheese

Smokin' Chipotle Pimento Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #spicy #cheese #spread #recipe

Inspired by Dixie Chik Cooks I have a wonderful circle of yoga friends. We have little parties where everyone brings food … and someone inevitably brings pimento cheese to every party. Typically it is store-bought, picked up on the way to the party, but everyone enjoys it and talks about how much they love it. And […]


Rosemary Rhubarb Margarita

with a smoky sweet & spicy rim It’s 8 am on a Saturday morning and I’m posting a margarita recipe. If my friend Russ gets wind of this, I’ll never hear the end of it. I made these margaritas yesterday afternoon for a cooking class celebrating Cinco de Mayo (a little late, but it’s always […]

Bourbon Bacon Baked Beans

Bacon Bourbon Baked Beans ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #decadent #bakedbeans #recipe #glutenfree

with chipotle … Adapted from How Sweet it is Although I have a life-long love of beans, I have a small confession for you: when I was a kid I used to make baked bean sandwiches. They were great treats, with beans spread out on slices of store-bought white bread. Today that thought makes me cringe, but […]

Six-Pepper Venison Chili with Beans ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #homemade #chili #recipe

This chili recipe has been sitting in my backlog of blog posts for almost a month now. At work at Christmas-time, they sponsored a card-making session where they provided cards, stickers, markers, etc. and encouraged us to make cards to send to our soldiers in the field. I thought it would be fun to do […]


Bacon Chocolate Chipotle Popcorn

Bacon Chocolate Chipotle Popcorn ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #spicy #popcorn #gift #recipe

  This popcorn is so simple and such a simple gift to make for your friends and family this holiday season! My boyfriend is responsible for this post … I asked him if he likes popcorn (because I frickin’ LOVE popcorn) and, much to my dismay, he said he isn’t a big popcorn fan … but […]

Creamy, cheesy potato soup with the spicy smoky zing of chipotle peppers and a bit of bacon to add to the smokiness. I made it gluten free by using tapioca flour for the thickener, but you can use regular flour if you don’t have a sensitivity to gluten. I made this soup for a little […]


Apricot Mint Dessert Salsa

Apricot Mint Dessert Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #salsa #recipe

Peach Pecan Pulled Pork Salad

Peach Pecan Pulled Pork Salad with Smoky Chipotle BBQ Ranch Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad for #dinner #recipe

A while ago, I made some pulled pork for my kids in the crockpot, so they’d have something a little outside of their normal routine to eat. I’ve been wanting to make a salad with it ever since I made it. I had visions of a BBQ Cobb salad when I walked into the kitchen, […]


Smoky Chipotle BBQ Ranch Dressing

Smoky Chipotle BBQ Ranch Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #homemade #salad #dressing #recipe

A mix of two favorites! Ranch dressing joins barbecue sauce to make a smoky, flavor-filled taste sensation. Made light with nonfat Greek yogurt so it’s healthy enough to serve or enjoy anytime.

Chipotle Spinach & Blue Cheese Omelet

Chipotle Spinach & Blue Cheese Omelet ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoky #spinach #bluecheese #omelet #recipe

An omelet for people who crave flavor!

I’ve […]


Cranberry Chipotle Meatballs

Cranberry Chipotle Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #party #meatballs #recipe

I made this recipe because a friend of mine from work came to me and said she had this grass-fed ground round that she was having NO luck with whatsoever, so she asked if she could bring some of it to me and see if I could make something edible out of it. She complained that […]
