Frito Pie

Frito Pie

This is one of the recipes that has a different name depending on where you’re from. I’ve heard it referred to as Frito Pie, Walking Tacos, and Chili Pie. Growing up we ate this with canned chili but I decided to try a quick skillet chili to make it a bit healthier.

Jalapeño Bacon Cheeseburgers #SundaySupper

Jalapeno bacon cheeseburger  Cookin' Mimi cookingmimi.wordpress.com

This week’s #SundaySupper theme is a Summer BBQ. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of summer cookouts. We’d have hot dogs, burgers, potato salad, deviled eggs, plenty of sodas, and if we were especially lucky there would be homemade ice cream. My cousins and I would play freeze tag, put on talent shows, have water fights, and just generally be kids.

I grill burgers more than anything else and this is a burger inspired by one I had last month at one of my favorite local burger and hot wing joints. This isn’t exactly like that one but it’s still pretty dad gum good.

Southwestern Beef and Black Bean Bake

Southwestern beef black bean bake

This dinner takes around an hour from to start to finish but it isn’t complicated and only takes a skillet and a baking dish. You can customize the spiciness level your family prefers by using a hotter diced tomatoes with green chiles or enchilada sauce. I would keep one of those mild to make sure you don’t start any five alarm fires in your mouth.

Salisbury Steaks with Mushroom and Onion Gravy

salisbury steak

Salisbury steak is one of my favorite comfort foods.  There is something about the tender beef simmered in a rich mushroom and onion laced gravy and served with mashed potatoes that makes me very happy.

Don’t be put off by the long ingredient list or steps in the directions. This is a very simple dish to make.

Ground Beef and Veggie Stir Fry

ground beef and veggie stir fry

One evening while browsing on Pinterest I saw a pin for a Korean Beef recipe that used ground beef instead of the usual flank steak or London broil.

In rare fashion I made the recipe the very next day. It was good but I like veggies in my stir fries. (Mongolian Chicken is the exception to this) So, I decided the next time I made it to add a few veggies to it to make it more of a meal.
