Slow Cooker Chicken and Bean Tostadas / Bev Cooks

Tostada Tuesday! (shhhh.) Not only that, slow cooker tostadas. Slow cooker chicken and bean tostadas. Slow cooker chicken and pinto bean tostadas with fresh pico on top! Ugh. And the cheese? Chipotle cheddar. I give up now. This is one of those you-know-everything-will-work-out-in-life meals, because a) it’s a bunch of chicken and beans and corn […]

Slow Cooker Moroccan Pulled Pork

Slow Cooker Moroccan Pulled Pork / Bev Cooks

You don’t even want to know how long it took me to spell Moroccan right. Who rightly cares though because THIS DISH. Ahhhhhhh! It’s going to change you. As a person. Changed. Also, I’m having a serious talk with myself right now about the amount of all-caps abuse in the coming of this post. I […]

Five-Alarm Chili


Apparently my mouth thinks it’s still winter. Isn’t it wonderful? So, have you ever had Five-Alarm Chili? Da-hudes. It’s HOT. But I like my face to rain, so I don’t mind. Thing is, Aaron keeps buying bags of corn chips. Like Fritos, ya know. The ones that you plunge into bean dip. He won’t stop. […]

Salsa Verde Chicken Soup


I know it’s hip to talk about the temperatures right now, but I just can’t do it. I just can’t. Especially because it’s going to be 96 freaking degrees this weekend and I want to punch it in the groin. But I’m not going to talk about it. I’m also not going to mention that […]

Roasted Vegetable and Pesto Minestrone


This soup looks like my neighborhood right now. Okay and get this. Normally I don’t gravitate towards certain fallish colors, likes the brown and yellow hues. Now, the burnt oranges, deep reds and dark purples? Totally obsessed with. But THIS YEAR? This year I’m loving it all. ALL OF IT. I’m like a loose lion […]

Gourmet Chili Dogs


I’m pretty sure this recipe is the biggest oxymoron ever. And quite possibly the most freaky delicious oxymoron that’s going to knock your face into next Tuesday. Last week on the Facebooks and Twitters I asked you if I should make these here chili dogs. And then my accounts exploded due to little red notifications […]

Dinosaur Kale, Tomato and White Bean Soup


I know. I’ve been on quite the kale kick lately. Oh! Let’s start a band. The Kale Kicks. I’ll play bass. Have you ever seen this kind of kale before? Dinosaur kale? It’s flatter and more rich in color compared to the limey-er green curly kale I showed you on Friday. And it has little […]

Pantry Chicken and Beans


Okay, so I just finished reading this book. It’s fiction, but one of the main characters is a chef, so any time she references food, the recipe is supplied at the end of each chapter. Pretty pimp, eh? The book itself is gosh darned good, if you’re into giggling like a school girl, weeping like […]

Classic Beef and Bean Chili


Can I ask you a question? What does it mean when someone “winterizes” something? Is it just checking to make sure the chimney sweep doesn’t have eagles or hobos stuck in it again? Or is it a quick glance at the windows and doors for any slits where evil ice ghosts might slip through at […]
