Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili
Make a double batch of this quick vegetarian chili, full of black beans and sweet potatoes, and eat it for lunch the next day or freeze the extras for another night. We love the smoky heat from the ground chipotle, but omit it if you prefer a mild chili. Serve with tortilla chips or cornbread and coleslaw……..

 

Inside-Out Lasagna
Here we take basic lasagna ingredients—ricotta cheese, pasta and tomatoes—and skip the layering and long baking time to make a super-quick and satisfying meal for the whole family. To cut down on prep time, look for presliced mushrooms. For meat lovers, brown some crumbled turkey sausage along with the onions and garlic. Serve with: Steamed broccoli and whole-grain baguette…….

 

Sweet Potatoes with Warm Black Bean Salad
For a satisfying last-minute supper, it’s hard to beat a sweet potato zapped in the microwave. The fragrant filling of beans and tomatoes adds protein. Be sure to eat the skin, which is full of fiber, as well……

Chile Pepper Recipes and Other Spicy Recipes

Hot chile peppers, cayenne and chipotle might awaken your taste buds and make you sweat, but these spices will add more than just heat to your next meal. These zesty spices have health benefits that help trigger the body’s natural cooling system and rev up metabolism. Our healthy spice recipes featuring chile pepper, cayenne, chipotle and paprika are packed with flavor—but not calories. Enjoy Braised Paprika Chicken or warm up with the zesty flavors of our Middle Eastern Lamb Stew.

 

Paprika and Red Pepper Soup with Pistachio Puree
Richly satisfying, this luscious-looking soup made with red bell peppers gets a touch of heat from Thai chile. For an extra-nutty flavor, puree an additional 1/4 cup shelled pistachios with 1/4 cup water and serve the soup with a dollop of this pistachio puree on top…….

 

Seared Scallops with Crispy Leeks
Herb-crusted scallops served with crispy baked leeks make an easy yet impressive dish to serve to friends. You may have seen “frizzled” or fried leeks on a restaurant menu before, but you might not guess how easy they are to make at home. Here we toss thinly sliced leeks with paprika- and garlic-seasoned flour and bake them until crispy. While the leeks bake you have time to sear the scallops. Serve with: Mashed potatoes and kale sautéed with garlic…..

 

Bean Burgers with Spicy Guacamole
These bean burgers will even please carnivores. The cornmeal coating gives a pleasant crunch and smoked paprika, cumin, cilantro and guacamole add Southwestern flavor…..

Grilled Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Creamy Potato Soup

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Creamy Potato Soup

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and I reheated a couple of Potato Pancakes that were leftover from Dinner last night. And as usual I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A bit cooler out today, high of 67 degrees and partly cloudy with a passing shower. In the mail, I received some Meijer Coupons, some really great coupons! 60 cents off for Pam Cooking Spray, free package Sargento Cheese Sticks, 80 cents off a package of Jennie – O Ground Turkey and many more. So after Breakfast it was off to Mejier and I stopped by Kroger for Mom. Back home I cleaned the fridge and the oven, and done for the day. For Dinner tonight it’s a Grilled Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Creamy Potato Soup.

 

Mom and Dad were hungry so I made Dinner a bit early. It’s a Comfort Food Dinner tonight for me, Grilled Ham and Swiss Cheese Sandwich w/ Creamy Potato Soup. I’ve had this combo before and they just keep getting better! To make my Grilled Ham Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo, French’s Yellow Mustard, Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread to make my Sandwich.

 

 

 

To prepare it I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Next spread the Mayo on the bottom slice of Bread, next layered the Ham, spread the Mustard, and added the slice of the Swiss. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a large skillet, heated it up on medium heat and lightly coated it with a 1/2 pat of Butter. When the Butter was melted I added my sandwich. Grilled it on both sides until it was golden brown and the Cheese melted. Love these Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches.

 

 

 

For the Soup I’m using a favorite of mine, Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup Mix. To prepare a package of it; In a 2 quart sauce pan bring 8 cups of water to a rolling boil. Whisk in the soup mix. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Salt and pepper to taste and serve! Perfect seasoning, thickened up just right, plenty of Diced Potato and a fantastic Potato flavor. The package makes 8 cups and very easy to prepare. I really love all the Bear Creek Products I’ve tried so far. So delicious and easy to prepare. For Dessert/Snack later tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

 

 

 

Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Boneless Smoked Ham

Enjoy the exceptional flavor of a traditional bone-in ham without the bone. Available in the Deli retail case as a center of the plate item or at the Service Deli sliced by the pound for a sandwich of note.
http://boarshead.com/products/detail/11018-sweet-slice-brand-boneless-smoked-ham

 

 

 

 

 

Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup Mix
A favorite original Bear Creek® soup. Very creamy and delicious with a delicate blend of parsley, herbs and spices to give it a little kick.

Yields about 8 one-cup servings.
Try adding crumbled bacon, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese for variety.
While they simmer on the stove, you can smell the hearty goodness of Bear Creek® soups. They’re quick and easy to make and come in 15 delicious varieties. These soups have a homemade taste that will satisfy every appetite.
