Mardi Gras Hurricane Red White and Blueberries

I have been to New Orleans, but, I have never been during Mardi Gras.  I hope to get there one day without the kids.  What is your favorite traditional Mardi Gras Meal?

This Week’s Pinterest Recipe ….

This past weekend was my “hubby’s birthday weekend”, or at least that’s when we chose to celebrate it, his actual birthday was on November 13th.  The “grands”, were sweet enough to keep the kids, so that we could get some alone time.  ALONE TIME, definitely one of my favorite things.

So, I took the opportunity to try out two new recipes that I found on…. wait for it, lol, PINTEREST.

These recipes definitely fall into the cold weather, comfort food categories.  So, I am not claiming that they are super healthy, just super tasty and a bit spicy.

Anyway,  check out, these recipes and the websites that they were linked from.

Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili
(that’s a mouthful!)
2 chicken breasts, still frozen
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 can corn kernels, do not drain
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 pkg. Ranch dressing mix
1 T cumin
1 t chili powder
1 t onion powder
1 8-oz pkg. cream cheese
Put the chicken in the crock pot.
Top with the tomatoes, corn,
the drained and rinsed beans,
ranch dressing, cumin, onion and chili powders,
stir to combine then top with the cream cheese.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, stirring one or twice
to blend in the cheese.
Shred the chicken into large pieces
and serve over rice.
Can also serve in tortillas or taco shells.
Serves 4(This would also make an excellent dip!)Enjoy!

** Now, instead of using a tortillas, rice or taco shell as recommended I made these!!
