PostHeaderIcon #Recipe Quick, Easy and delicious Chimichangas

Recipe for Chicken Chimichangas - DelightfulChaos.com
Disclosure: This is NOT a sponsored post.

My fiancee has this habit of posting things on my Facebook that he wants for dinner. Sometimes he finds them online and sometimes it is a weird concoction of things he thinks will work together. Don’t tell him but. I always change it because, well, I am just a better cook.

Tonight he requested a weird version of a Mexican Chimichanga. While it’s not what I would call an authentic Chimichanga, they are still pretty tasty! I was making enough for 6 people so you can cut this recipe in half for a smaller portion. This recipe made 16 of them. The nice thing about this recipe is that it is versatile! You can mis cheeses, use two of the same and even pick a mild or hot taco mix. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon #Recipe Taco Chili Cheese Spaghetti

You know those days when you just don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen cooking dinner? Today was one of those days. I was on the hunt for an easy and fast recipe. We were graced with about a foot of snow, which I love but, the shoveling and playing have me pooped out. I think I am getting too old to spend 3 hours playing in the snow. Maybe? NAH!

I stood in front of the pantry, saw the chili and thought, “Hmm, let’s give it a try.” I am sure it’s been done somewhere before but, it’s new to me. Most things that I make stem from, let’s see what we can throw together today. I actually use my blog as a recipe book of sorts. Once I make it, I post it. Usually later on, I will write it in my book if it was a hit with everyone.

I am not a fan of beans but, this was what I had because it was on sale. You can really use either kind. You can use any brands that you like, I listed what I used. This is easy to assemble. You simply layer the ingredients on, as I have laid out below, and pop it in the oven!

PostHeaderIcon #Recipe Scrumptious and Easy Mashed Potato Pancakes

Easy Mashed Potato Pancakes - DelightfulChaos.com #RecipeI am a little late getting this Potato Pancake recipe post up. When I posted my photo to Instagram, it should have gone up the next day. Sadly, I became sick and did not do much else other than sleep. I apologize for making you wait but trust me, it was worth it!

Leftovers are not usually a thing in our home. I already seem to cook for an army of boys and they don’t leave anything behind. I always seem to make way more mashed potatoes than I need, for 6 people. While I am not a big fan of regular pancakes, I love potato pancakes but, I have never tried to make them before. Wait, probably because there are never any left over. Well, I lucked out. The boys graciously left me a ton so, my attempt at it was born.

I am so glad that I decided to go ahead and do these. They are absolutely delicious. The chives are an amazing flavor in these. If you love baked potatoes, you will love these Potato Pancakes. It is a quick and easy breakfast to throw together. I don’t recommend making these in advance. They are best served fresh and slightly crispy. If left in the fridge over night, they lose the crisp. If you don’t mind that, by all means, cook ahead!

The kids can definitely get involved making these too. Royal loves to flip the breakfast. Whether it’s pancakes or french toast, he always gets in there and wants to do it. Hopefully he will grow up to have the same love for cooking, and baking, as I do.

If you have an questions, or requests, please feel free to leave a comment below. Also, if you give them a try, please come back and tell me what you think. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Super Simple & Quick Kid Friendly Snacks

Being a mom of these crazy boys, I am always looking for fast, simple and cheap lunch recipes. Snacks are a big deal for us. I also like to find a way to use up any left overs from the night before. I am usually pretty good at coming up with new things for dinner but, sometimes I just run out of ideas, or don’t have a lot of time.

Here are a few ideas for you.

Tortilla Roll Ups – Spread cream cheese and a couple slices of deli meat onto a flour tortilla… roll it up and eat! I like mine with honey ham. You can eat it burrito style or slice it up into pinwheels.

Vanilla Fruit Salad – Very easy! Fill a salad bowl with large squares of fresh fruit. Whatever kind you like or what is on sale! Pour a carton of Vanilla Yogurt (it has to be vanilla flavored!) over the fruit for a sauce. That’s it!

Traditional Pudding Pops – Prepare a box of instant pudding just like it says on the box. Pour it into popcycle molds and pop it in the freezer. We like Chocolate best but, there are so many kinds of pudding available so, have fun with it! The cheesecake was delicious also!
