Steak Enchilada Bowls with Sweet Potato Rice
You won’t miss the regular rice in these hearty bowls, which feature sweet potato “rice” that’s quickly made in your food processor. The simple swap means a welcome burst of color and flavor, plus way more vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium. This quick and easy recipe is sure to become a weeknight favorite. It takes about half an hour to prep, but you can make it even faster by swapping in store-bought sweet potato rice………………….

Cuban Beef Picadillo over Plantain Mash
Ground beef cooked with tomatoes and briny olives can be found all over Latin America. This is a favorite Cuban variation served over plantains, starchy vegetables that look like giant bananas. You can also serve the picadillo over rice or potatoes, so this easy dinner recipe is versatile too……………….

Beef and Bean Sloppy Joes
This healthy copycat recipe of the comfort food classic trades beans for some of the meat to bump up fiber by 7 grams. We also cut back on the sugar and ketchup in this Sloppy Joe recipe makeover to save you 12 grams of added sugar…………………….

Idaho® Potato and Chicken Gumbo

Recipe Ingredients:
6 tablespoons Brown Roux (recipe follows)
1 1/2 cups Idaho® potatoes, peeled and shredded
1 cup diced yellow onion
1 cup diced yellow, red and green peppers
1 cup diced celery
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 pounds cooked chicken meat, pulled (shredded)
2 tablespoons Creole seasoning (recipe follows)

8 cups Idaho® potatoes, cubed and sautéed for accompaniment

Brown Roux:
8 ounces (1 cup) butter
8 ounces (2 cups) all-purpose flour

Creole Seasoning:
2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried basil

Cooking Directions:
1 – For Gumbo: In a large stockpot, bring the chicken stock to a boil. Temper approximately 6 tablespoons of Brown Roux into the broth (add 1/2 cup of hot broth to the roux and mix completely. Add the broth and roux mixture back into the boiling broth and whisk).
2 – Add potato. Simmer for 12 minutes. Add the onion, peppers, celery, garlic, and chicken pieces.
3 – Add Creole seasoning. Taste and adjust seasoning, if desired. Continue to cook for another 10 minutes (the vegetables should be cooked, but still firm).
4 – To Serve: Ladle gumbo over sautéed potatoes.
5 – For Oven Method Brown Roux: Slowly brown the flour on a sheet pan at 300°F (150°C) about 20 to 30 minutes. Stir the mixture halfway through (about 10 to 15 minutes) to achieve an even browning. The flour should be a light khaki color and will smell like roasted nuts.
6 – For Stovetop Method Brown Roux: Cook the flour and the butter over medium-high heat until a brown, smooth consistency occurs (about 5 to 6 minutes). Once the roux has cooled, cover and leave unrefrigerated until needed. Later, if any oil has separated from the roux, simply stir the oil into the mixture.
7 – For Creole Seasoning: Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. May be stored in a tightly covered container. Makes 1/4 cup.

Makes 10 servings.

Turkey and Brown Rice Chili
This hearty turkey chili recipe takes just 35 minutes to prep. While it’s cooking, you’ll have time to throw together a green salad and warm up some crusty bread to complete the meal……….

White Turkey Chili
This healthy white turkey chili recipe is gorgeous, with flecks of green from zucchini, oregano and green chiles. To keep the saturated fat low, we use one pound of ground turkey and add whole-grain bulgur to boost the volume and fiber in this chili recipe. After all the ingredients are added to the pot, we like to slowly simmer our chili for close to an hour to develop the best flavor, but if you’re in a hurry, reduce the liquid by half and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes……….

Clean-Out-the-Fridge Vegetable Stew
Full of flavor and plenty of veggies, this easy vegetable soup is a great way to clear out some space in your produce drawer. This recipe is flexible enough that you can make ingredient changes based on what you have on hand. You could also very easily make this a vegan stew by swapping out the butter for oil. Be sure to defrost the frozen items and drain off any liquid that accumulates during defrosting time you don’t water down the stew. Because this recipe makes a large amount of stew, consider freezing half for later…………

Leftover Turkey Stew
This hearty and healthy turkey stew recipe is just about the best use of Thanksgiving leftovers we can think of. And we don’t just mean the turkey. The stew is packed with leftover roasted vegetables—use whatever vegetables you have on hand, such as Brussels sprouts, parsnips, sweet potatoes and green beans. And leftover gravy is used to add depth of flavor and body. Possibly the best part of this stew recipe? It comes together really quickly—because don’t we all need a 20-minute dinner after the craziness of Thanksgiving? Add some leftover bread or rolls and dinner is done. This recipe is equally delicious with leftover cooked chicken or rotisserie chicken, and we’ve included instructions for making a quick gravy in case you don’t have leftovers, so you can serve this Thanksgiving-in-a-pot year-round…………….

Pork and Green Chile Stew
Let your slow cooker work—while you’re at work!—and come home to a delicious bowl of hearty stew for dinner. Full of potatoes, hominy, green chiles, and chunks of pork sirloin, this filling stew recipe takes just 25 minutes to prepare in the morning……………

When making a Pizza………………

Cook Your Pizza Toppings – Whether it’s Meatless Monday or loading up on the sausage and peppers, make sure everything’s cooked before it hits the pizza pie. The oven won’t be hot enough to fully cook your raw meat, and most vegetables will end up too crunchy for your liking without a little par-cooking. Enjoy that Pizza!
