More About the Recipes in This Prep Session:

Recipe #1: Vegetarian Tortilla Soup 

This one-pot wonder may be lighter fare, but your appetite will be more than satisfied thanks to hearty beans, brown rice, veggies, and bold flavors.

Serving SuggestionsTop with your favorite Mexican toppings, like crushed tortilla chips, diced avocado or red onion, cilantro, a squeeze of fresh lime juice, shredded cheddar, etc.

Mix It Up:

  • Add in chopped spinach for even more (virtually tasteless) nutrition.
  • Stir in shredded rotisserie chicken or leftover seasoned taco meat at the end of the cook time for a heartier soup.

Recipe #2: Honey Bourbon Chicken 

A little sweet and a little spicy, this chicken recipe is BIG on flavor and takes just minutes to throw together. While the bourbon does lend a complex taste that’s hard to replicate, you can replace it with chicken broth/stock and still get good results.

Serving SuggestionsWhip up a big pot of brown rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice and a pan of stir-fried veggies to complete the meal and help soak up all that delicious sauce.

Mix It Up:

  • Chop/shred the cooked chicken to use in our Asian Slaw. Store in the fridge and eat on it all week long.
  • Toss this cooked, chopped chicken into our Fried Rice with Sweet Soy Sauce recipe.
  • Tired of chicken? Use this same marinade for Steak Kabobs, Grilled Steak, Asian Salmon, or for shrimp instead.

Recipe #3: Balsamic Shredded Beef 

This easy, dump-and-go dinner made one kid Rachel knows exclaim, “This is better than candy!” All ages enjoy this simple, sweet and savory dish.

Serving SuggestionsServe the shredded beef and juices over mashed potatoes or polenta.

    Mix It Up:

    • Enjoy it la carte with a hearty side dish like Boiled Baby Potatoes or Easy Hash Brown Casserole.
    • Serve it like a French Dip Sandwich on hearty bread, like ciabatta or steak rolls, with Provolone cheese on top. Give each person a small ramekin of the au jus that’s left in the slow cooker for dipping (the best part!).
    • Swap the beef broth for chicken broth, and then use the marinade for another cut of meat like chicken thighs or pork chops instead.
