Mexican Fiesta Taco Soup

Mexican Fiesta Taco Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #festive #taco #soup #recipe

This is a festive soup with lots of flavor and spice, bits of vibrant color, with crunchy chips, melty cheese, avocado & cilantro on the top. Make it with taco meat to make a heartier soup, or without for a vegetarian option. The inspiration from this soup came from a Cinco de Mayo party on my facebook […]


Zucchini Gorgonzola Soup

Zucchini Gorgonzola Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creamy #zucchini #gorgonzola #soup with no cream!

Every Wednesday night I go to yoga, and after yoga, my yogi friends and I go out for wine. Most of us just order a drink, but a couple consistently order soup as well. They make very good soup at this restaurant, and one of the soups my friends rave over is their Zucchini Gorgonzola […]


Basil Chive Cucumber & Corn Salad

Basil Chive Cucumber & Corn Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cucumber #corn #basil #salad #recipe

just very slightly adapted from my friend Ann at The Fountain Avenue Kitchen Fresh summer corn with crunchy cucumbers, basil and chives … what more could you need to make a great salad? Not much, really. Just a couple tablespoons full of light mayonnaise and you’re done. When I was pondering what to do with […]


Turkey Black Bean Fresh Mex Bowl

Turkey Black Bean Fresh Mex Bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #Mexican #meal #recipe

After I made that fabulous Cilantro Lime Rice, I kept thinking of ideas for how I could use it. The first thing that came to mind was the Fresh Mex bowl that I had had at Chili’s a while ago. They looked SO good on the menu, but when I got mine, I just felt […]


Chipotle Fish Taco Salad

with Herbed Lime Cilantro Yogurt dressing  (salad dressing recipe adapted from 17 Recipes) If there’s anything I love more than a taco, it’s a taco salad. Give me greens, some good things to put on them and an awesome homemade dressing and I’m a happy girl. I had some more fish strips left after making those […]


Mexican Fiesta Red Beans & Rice

Mexican Style Red Beans & Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #skillet #dinner #recipe

Hey, I’m guest posting over at Platter Talk today … Dan’s letting me tend the kitchen, so I cooked up some Red Beans & Rice with a Mexican Twist. I love mixing up cuisines and making something new out of an old tradition. I used a spicy chorizo in place of the Andouille, red beans […]


Crockpot Creamy Christmas Posole

Crockpot Creamy Christmas Posole ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #posole #soup #recipe

If you’ve ever been to New Mexico at Christmastime, you have probably experienced Posole.  It’s that magical pork-hominy stew that everyone serves during this season, along with tamales and luminarias (candles in paper bags that they line the streets and walkways with). Christmas in New Mexico is enchanting, and the posole is a bowl of […]


Mexican Carnitas Cobb Salad for #TheSaladBar

Mexican Carnitas Cobb Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

The carnitas (“little meats”) for this salad is just slightly adapted from Full Belly Sisters and Eat Live Run I made the crockpot carnitas (little meats) last week, gave some of it to my friend, then made myself some nachos and pondered what to do with it next. Tacos or burritos were certainly an option, but it also just […]


Smoky Asiago Zucchini Corn Soup

Smoky Asiago Zucchini Corn Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

Creamy cheesy smoky wonderful soup with bits of sweet corn and tender zucchini. My friend at work brought in some of her sweet corn to share with me … I roasted it on the grill with the intent of creating some wonderful smoky flavored something with it. I ate some of it hot off the […]


Mexican Queso Dip Supreme

Mexican Queso Dip Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dip #recipe

When I’m at the grocery store, I like to poke around the cheese sections and see what I can find. One day, I found these beautiful cheeses and that made me think, “Ooh queso! Yes, that’s what I’ll bring to the lake with me!” … and so, along with the many varieties of banana bread […]


Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

This tortilla soup was a soup inspired by a local restaurant … we go there every Wednesday for wine after yoga. Most of us just have wine, but every once in a while someone orders soup, and then someone else inevitably does. Sometimes I do, most of the time I don’t, but often my friends […]


Crunchy Beef & Bean Taco Cups

Crunchy Beef & Bean Taco Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican food #recipe

I got this clever and super simple idea from Abby at Manila Spoon. I showed Abby’s photo of these little crunchy taco cups to my daughter and the two friends she had over and they absolutely loved the idea. And since I’m behind on posting  anything for Cinco de Mayo this year, I decided to make […]

Inspired by Lemony Thyme and my wonderful wonderful parents Fish, shrimp and corn chowder, with potatoes, onion, celery, carrot, and green chile, laced with the salty goodness of bacon and a bit of cream: it’s a bowl of pure comfort.

with black beans & corn … adapted from Half Baked Harvest Crunchy baked taquitos, filled with a festive mixture of shredded chicken, cheese, onion, black beans, salsa & corn. Once upon a time, in another lifetime it seems, back when I was married and trips to Sam’s Club were a regular weekly thing, we used […]


Hotsy Totsy Summer Shrimp Dip

Hotsy Totsy Summer Shrimp Dip

Calling this a shrimp dip is a little misleading because it’s got SO much more than shrimp in it … there’s bacon, and asparagus, and grilled corn cut off the cob, sweet onion, Havarti, Gorgonzola and cream cheese, greek yogurt, some seasonings of course… and then, to give it a little summer heat, some Sriracha […]


Spicy Smoky Corn Pudding

Spicy Smoky Cornbread Pudding

with smoked Gouda and bacon So what do you do with leftover cornbread? My kids both love it, but they will only eat it when it’s fresh. Of course it’s best when it’s fresh and hot, but it’s still good later! … especially when it’s grilled cornbread. I opened up the container that I stored […]


Cajun Andouille Sausage & Vegetable Stew

Cajun Andouille Sausage and Vegetable Stew

A nearly wordless Wednesday post … “Do you have a kinder, more adaptable friend in the food world than soup? Who soothes you when you are ill? Who refuses to leave you when you are impoverished and stretches its resources to give a hearty sustenance and cheer? Who warms you in the winter and cools […]


Corn Chowder, New Mexico Style

Have you ever been to New Mexico? If you haven’t, you must go. Really, schedule a trip to get there. Do it now. You must see this place before you die. It is one of the most enchanting places on earth. I used to live there. When I first moved to New Mexico from the […]


Spicy Corn & Black Bean Salsa

I have a lot of fresh corn still and have already frozen plenty for the year. I really love hot, spicy salsas and I thought it would be fun to try a corn salsa. I just tinkered with it till I came up with a flavor combination that worked. This works. The jalapenos give it […]

with Tequila Lime Vinaigrette Usually I have a lot to say about a recipe, but today I’m rushing through lunch and need to get back to work. I just have a whole lot of sweet corn from my mom and dad I need to use up and a black bean and corn salad seemed like […]


Crunchy Fish Tacos with Zucchini Avocado Summer Vegie Melange

Crunchy Fish Tacos with Zucchini Avocado Summer Vegie Melange

This was a recipe born out of a need to use up leftover fish and corn on the cob … it was late summer so we also had an over-abundance of vegetables from the garden (but no cabbage!) and we happened to have an avocado on hand. Little did I know my parents had never […]
