Chipotle Butternut Squash Enchiladas – Vegetarian & Gluten-Free

Enchiladas are an easy, make-ahead family meal that gets my Tex-Mex loving family congregating in the kitchen early to count-down the oven timer. When the teenage boys found out I was serving vegetarian Chipotle Butternut Squash Enchiladas they seemed a little bummed about missing the meat. One said, “Well, at least there’s lots of butter and nuts”!  Chipotle Butternut Squash Enchiladas

After I educated him on this sizable squash (which is technically a fruit) packed with fiber, potassium, magnesium and vitamins like C, A & E, he took his plate with an eye roll. But, soon his plate was licked clean and he was coming back for more – read on to find out why and get the recipe! Continue reading

Cranberry Orange Bourbon Beef Stew w/ Sage Romano Grits + #StubbsInsider Giveaway

This post and giveaway was sponsored by Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q , however all opinions, comments and enthusiasm are my own.

Cranberry Orange Bourbon Beef Stew on Sage Romano Grits

This holiday season, I’ve made a vow to make all my meals with love, happiness and smiles. Not just the big celebration dinners, but also the crazy night meals when we’ve been out all day running errands, visiting with family or volunteering with our favorite charity (Brown Santa).  Some times on these chaotic nights, I get grumbly about making supper, but shortcuts with Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q products  keep me grinning even after sitting in shopping mall traffic or spending hours trying to figure out which bulb in a string of lights has burned out.

Cranberry Orange Bourbon Beef Stew on Sage Romano Grits in slow cooker

For this slow cooker recipe, I’ve used Stubb’s Smokehouse Bourbon Cookin’ Sauce. This convienient product (which is gluten free) works in both the skillet and slow cooker. It contains a flavorful sauce pouch made with bourbon, garlic and rosemary along with a spice packet that can be used to prep the meat. Browning Stew Meat

One little hint extra step I have for this quick and easy recipe is to brown the stew meat before putting in the crock pot. While this may seem unnecessary (and you can skip if absolutely pressed for time), it does create an amazing caramelization on the beef which helps to create a more complex flavor experience. Cranberry Orange Bourbon Beef Stew on Sage Romano Grits -  an easy slow cooker meat that will satisfy your guests this holiday season.

Don’t just think of Stubb’s ONLY as a way to fix traditional Texas BBQ. They have so many delicious Bar-B-Q sauces, marinades, rubs and Cookin’ Sauces that offer bold flavors to spur on your creativity in the kitchen this holiday season.

Of course, I love to create my own new holiday recipes as well as revisit family food traditions, but why recreate the wheel on every single side dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas and other winter family gatherings when Stubb’s has complied a delicious collection of recipes for the season?! stubbs-roasted-brussels-sprouts

Yes-sir-ee, the Stubb’s Roasted Brussels Sprouts will be a delicious compliment to my Slow Cooker Cranberry-Orange Beef Stew with Rosemary Garlic Grits. You need to try these, so amazing!

Shiner Bock Beer Short Ribs with Chipotle Cheese Grits for CrossFit 16.1 Recovery

Shiner Bock Beer Beef Short Ribs can be made ahead in the slow cooler -- and then the grits only take 10 minutes make.Oh hello, how was your weekend? Mine was very meaty and gritty, let me explain! First up, I had to, ahem, knock out Cross Fit Games Open 16.1 Workout. And, when I say “knock out” I mean muster up every gram of grit I have to lunge around with a really-heavy-to-me 65 lb. overhead bar. Seems everyone else was worried about the Chest-to-Bar Pull ups in this WOD which I nailed unbroken (need to have some silver lining in the recap).However, the Achilles heel of my scrawny rear is any task that requires more butt strength than getting up off the couch. I kid, but still.

CrossFit Games Open 16.1 Workout - thefitfork.com

In the end and with many rest breaks, I lunged 275 meters with more than half of my body weight above my head  (tongue out!). . . at the finish of one set I half dropped the bar on my head. That hurt. As I bragged mentioned, I killed the Chest-to-Bar Pullups and the positive visualization of whipping those out is what would get me through the last few lunges in each round.  And, the burpees – well, they were burpees. One young beast of a girl at the gym scored nearly double to me – so awesome, so humbling!  Right now I am hanging at 14h place in my age group for the South Central states region (and will surely drop significantly by Monday night when all scores are reported), I’m really happy that I challenged myself to do something that was out of my comfort zone. That’s what it’s all about, right?!

Shiner Bock Short Ribs and Chipotle Cheese Grits

So, I rarely write a race or workout recap without also including a recipe –for me the love of food and fitness are forever entwined.  So, anticipating my fatigue from the CrossFit 16.1 WOD, I knew I was going to need a protein-rich meal to bring the old bod back to life. In the morning before heading out, I threw some beef short ribs and a bottle of beer in the slow cooker to work their magic. To prep dinner, I only needed 10 minutes to whip up some grits and toss a salad – thank you Crock Pot for doing all the heavy lifting at dinner!

Chipotle Cheese Grits are ready in 10 minutes and add South of the Border meets The South flair to dinner.

Hope you enjoy this recipe for SHINER BOCK BEER SHORT RIBS WITH CHIPOTLE CHEESE GRITS – I originally created it for the Texas Beef Council – head on over there if you’d like to learn a little more about this cut of beef or get my useful slow cooker tips. It’s a super easy and forgiving recipe that will pamper your primal meat cravings without any fuss. Not normally on my diet, the Chipotle Cheese Grits were a delicious treat . . . and using some of the beef liquid reserved from the Crock Pot complemented the peppers’ smoky heat and kicked up the flavor of often bland grits into beast mode!  And, the ribs were literally fall off the bone tender which I feel was somewhat metaphorical for the state of my muscles.

Dinner Stampede – Southwestern Steak Chili #Recipe

Southwestern Steak Chile - TheFitFork.com

Ring-ding-ding! Come and get it – I’m serving up Southwestern Steak Chili for dinner and you are about to miss it. A big bowl full of this hearty goodness will squash your “hangries” and fuel you up for whatever adventures you’ve got coming up – whether that’s just some causal mechanical bull riding or running roughshod right over a marathon goal (speaking hypothetically, of course).

Mechanical Bull Riding

Nutritious ingredients magnified by down-on-the-ranch seasonings create wonderful smells while simmering on the stove top – expect a stampede to the dinner table. Folks I know usually make chili with ground beef, but this easy recipe takes it to a whole ‘notha, fork-slinging level with beef stew meat. Meat labeled beef stew is whatever your butcher feels like cutting up that day. So, if you are looking to save a buck and want some control over what you’re eating, try sirloin or round for a lean option or chuck if you want juicier, fall-apart action.

southwestern steak chili with muir glen fire roasted tomatoes

I’ve used a can of pinto beans (hubby likes these best) and a can of black beans (my favorite) – but you can use whatever variety you prefer including the traditional kidney bean.  Chipotle chile powder is my ace in the hole in this pot of chili. I mix up a blend of standard chili powder along with some chipotle power to add smoky undertones – chipotle peppers are just smoked jalapenos. Oh, and an awesome way to boost up the smoky, roasted flavor is to use canned fire-roasted tomatoes – this post isn’t sponsored, but Muir Glen makes a great organic option.

Pot of Southwestern Steak Chili from TheFitFork.com

  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (7-ounce) can salsa verde

  3. Add beer, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Return beef to pan. Stir tomatoes, beans and salsa verde; bring to boil.
  4. Cover Dutch oven, reduce heat and simmer approximately 90 minutes or until beef begins to fall apart with fork.

Chipotle Squash & Chickpea Soup #SilkProteinPower

The weatherman said we had a cold front today, dropping the temperatures down into the upper nineties. Yeah, you heard me right 98 degrees in September, but that’s the trade-off for getting to live in the awesomeness that is Austin, Texas. Getting an outdoor workout this time of year can really take a toll, and I always have to remind myself to bring plenty of water for hydration and a healthy snack for immediate post-workout refueling. Because my tummy usually doesn’t want solid food right after a high-intensity, high-heat run or WOD I often rely on Silk Chocolate Soymilk in the shelf-stable 8-oz boxes – it’s a favorite to pack in my gym bag for healthy carbs, no cholesterol and plant protein.

In anticipation of cooler weather, I’ve been playing around with soup recipes. I love soups that are CREAMY, but I don’t like the added fat and calories. Light bulb moment – why not substitute the cream with a healthier option, such as Light Original Silk Soymilk. If you’re curious about the nutritional benefits of Silk Soymilk, head over to Silk.com to learn more about soymilk – they can explain it all in every delicious, nutritious detail, but in a nutshell (or a legume pod, as the case may be)– soymilk is a smart addition to any healthy diet.

So, despite the heat, everyone at the dinner table slurped up my latest soup creation – Smoky Chipotle Butternut Squash & Chickpea Soup. Perfect for a weeknight meal, this soup is super easy to make because it relies on frozen butternut squash, canned chickpeas, and a blender. After the soymilk and other ingredients are ingredients are incorportated, it can quickly be heated up on the stove or in the microwave. Between the soymilk and the chickpeas, this autumn-inspired soup packs a nice little punch of protein power to support overall wellness and a “Meatless Monday” or vegetarian meal.

Smoky Chipotle Butternut Squash & Chickpea Soup Recipe

  • 1 10-oz bag frozen cubed butternut squash, thawed
  • 1 15-oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 oz. chipotle peppers with adobe sauce (from 7.5 ounce can)
  • 2 cups Light Original Silk Soymilk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 2 tablespoons minced dried onion
  • Garnishes: crumbled queso fresco, chipotle chili powder, fresh cilantro, jalapeno pepper slices, pepita seeds
  1. In blender, add all the ingredients except for the garnishes. Puree for approximately 1 minute or until mixture is smooth.
  2. Transfer to 2 quart pot and heat on medium low until desired temperature is achieved (or microwave loosely covered with a lid) in consecutive 30 second blasts, stirring between, until heated.
  3. Garnish with toppings of choice. Makes 4 large servings.

Okay, you know I #LoveMySilk, so when I saw this outdoor marquee photo from one of my favorite restaurant in Austin, I knew it was too silly not to share!

baked chicken spring rolls  raspberry chipotle sauce

Get that crispy crunch of an egg roll with virtually none of the fat with this yummy Baked Chicken Spring Rolls with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce recipe. A lightened up version of a take-out favorite, this snack or light dinner option can be made at home snippity-snap, quicker than the delivery guy can even get to your front door.

Inspired by the vegetables already in my produce bin, this recipe is easily adaptable to whatever colorful vegetables (and maybe even fruits for the daring) you need to use up. For convenience, I like a pre-prepared sauce for my spring rolls; Fischer & Wieser Raspberry Chipolte Sauce is a favorite.

Baked Chicken Spring Rolls with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce Recipe

2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon dried, ground ancho chile powder
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 large red onion, diced
6-ounces cabbage blend (I used a coleslaw bag)
¾ cup fresh corn kernels
3 tablespoons fresh minced parsley (more for garnish)
1 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon dried, ground ancho chile powder
2 cups diced or shredded chicken breast (already cooked)
12 square (7-inch) spring roll wrappers
3/4 cup Raspberry Chipotle Sauce, for serving (I used Fischer & Wieser brand)
Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

In large sauté pan heat up sesame oil over medium-low heat and add chile powder and garlic; sauté for 2 minutes. Add red onions and corn and sauté for 3 – 5 minutes until somewhat softened, but not soggy. Sir in the cabbage, lemon juice, and soy sauce and continue cooking, stirring frequently, for another 2 – 3 minutes. Stir chicken into vegetable mixture. Remove from heat and let mixture cool for 5 minutes.

spring roll veggies

Arrange the spring roll wrappers on a dry work surface then place 1/3 cup of the mixture in the center of each wrapper. Roll the wrappers snuggly around the mixture, folding the edges inward. Before your final fold, dip fingers in water and then moisten the outer edge of the wrapper to seal the spring roll shut.

Line a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat nonstick baking mat and line up spring rolls. Brush the tops of the rolls with olive oil then bake them for 25 – 30 minutes (rotating half-way through) or until golden brown and crisped. Remove the spring rolls from the oven and serve them immediately with warmed raspberry chipotle sauce.
