Courtney Schulist: Super Easy 5 Ingredient Chili

Grab your spoons, it’s Chili season!! Perhaps I should start off by saying any time is Chili time for me. I don’t discriminate based on weather, but I especially love it during the Fall/Winter seasons. Unfortunately, I don’t always have the time to make the beans homemade on top of making the chili, so this Chili recipe is for those times.

This Chili can be made using only 5 ingredients and is super quick to make. It’s also delicious, but most chili is. READ MORE 

SAVAGE CHILI VIA ANITA STAFFORD

 

Anita Stafford: Savage Chili

When the weather turns cool a bowl of chili is one of my favorite meals. Savage Chili is a recipe I have been making at my house for several years because it is easy to put together and super delicious. This recipe has been adapted from the cookbook Winning Recipes for Tailgatinga cookbook that was compiled by the Winston Cup racing wives auxiliary. I received the cookbook as a gift from a golf tournament my husband was playing in, and this has been a super cookbook. Now and then my husband even gets the cookbook out and makes the chili himself. READ MORE

ALMOST WINNING A CHILI CONTEST. YIKES!

My son wanted to enter a guys-only, chili-making contest, and asked me to teach him how to make a pot of chili.So I did. This is my favorite recipe, and I promise I only told him what to do—I did not touch it, the entire process.

Smoky, hot, and red throughout I love it, even for breakfast with an egg on top. Oh MY! READ MORE

Anita Stafford: Dove’s White Chicken Chili

This is a delicious chicken chili recipe that I borrowed from one of my sister’s cookbooks. Helen is as avid a cookbook collector as I am, so when I visit her in Texas, I always spend some time browsing her cookbooks for interesting recipes. This chili recipe came from The Dove’s Nest cookbook published by the Dove’s Nest Restaurant in Waxahachie, Texas. READ MORE

Jamie Smith: 1 for 1 Meat and Bean Chili Slow Cooker Chili

This chili is almost not a recipe, considering it’s so easy! It’s one of my more popular winter potluck recipes that coworkers at one of my jobs usually asked me to make. My husband loves it too!

I call it 1-for-1 chili because essentially, the ingredients are one of everything for one pound of meat. READ MORE

 

Ricci Alexis: Spicy Ranch Chicken and Rice {Foodie Friday}

I don’t know about you but I hate to go grocery shopping. I hate battling crowds, always forgetting something, and the store usually being out of the one thing I came to get. So frustrating!

With all of that being said when I can’t find anything to make for dinner I usuallyplay a game with myself called “Iron Pantry”. It’s similar to the TV show Iron Chef (is that show still on??) in that I just dig through the pantry for random ingredients and make them into a meal. I have created some of my favorite meals this way! Today Iam going to share that meal with you, Spicy Ranch Chicken and Rice!

Riceland, rice, chicken, ranch dressing

 

I was playing Iron Pantry one night when I created one of my all time favorite meals!! I literally came up with this recipe when I was in college and it’s still around today. Two things that I always keep on hand are chicken and brown rice…I switched from white to brown rice when I was in college and never looked back. It just tastes so much better to me than white rice!!

I marinated my chicken in some fat free Italian dressing and grilled it on my George Foreman. Can I just stop and say right here that I am obsessed with my George? I am a single lady and have not yet mastered an outdoor grill, but I can grill anything on my George!

I usually use whatever brown rice I find but have made it a point lately to buy Riceland Brown Rice. I love knowing that the rice I use was grown and harvested right down the road, Plus it just tastes better than most.

With my protein and grain I had a great start for the base for my meal! The night I created this meal I had some bell peppers, mushrooms, and garlic that I needed to use so I decided to sauté them and mix them in with my chicken and rice. The meal was looking better but needed a little something…

After digging though my spice cabinet I decided to spice it up with some Cajun seasoning. I always have Cajun seasoning on hand; it just goes good on everything!!

Processed with Snapseed.

It was looking pretty good but I decided to kick it up a notch and throw a little Hidden Valley Spicy Ranch on it and HOLY MOLY it was amazing!! And finally finished…HA!

These days I usually have everything I need to make this Spicy Ranch Chicken and Rice on hand and make it at least once a week. Sometimes I switch the veggies up and just use whatever I have on hand but that's the beauty of any recipe, you can totally customize it to what you like!
