Think your slow cooker is only good for winter staples, like soups and stews? Think again! These Slow Cooker Sriracha Mango Chicken Tacos are perfect for those hot summer days when you have zero desire to turn on a stove or oven. So go ahead and get outside, enjoy the weather, and have dinner waiting for you when you return!
It’s gettin’ hot in here, so turn off all your stoves…
That’s how the song goes, right??
But for real, we are in the heat of summer here in Ohio and cooking on the stove or in the oven is just not in the cards right now. And apparently, I’m not the only person who feels this way because this month’s Recipe Redux theme is all about beating the heat and keeping your kitchen cool during the hot summer months.
So, how exactly do keep your kitchen cool (and NOT live off of take-out)? Well, the first (and probably most obvious) option is to load up on no-cook meals. I often find myself naturally gravitating towards sandwiches, salads, and smoothies during the summer months. But, after a while the allure of no-cook meals inevitably wears off and the craving for a nice home cooked meal sets in. So, what’s a gal to do?
Two words: Slow. Cooker. (more…)
I know, I know… a zucchini recipe in September? Shouldn’t I be, like, sipping on pumpkin spice lattes, baking apple pies and tweeting about how much I JUST LOVE FALL? Maybe. But when it’s 90 degrees in the middle of September, fall is the farthest thing from my mind. So for now, I’ll be over here stuffing my face with these Grilled Zucchini Tacos. Feel free to join.
These Grilled Zucchini Tacos were inspired by my standing order at a local restaurant chain, El Vaquero. While I’m not usually one for chain restaurants, this one’s an exception (mainly because they’ve got a pretty bangin’ happy hour from 4-8pm which includes jumbo margaritas). Plus they had a location right around the corner from our old apartment, soo you do the math…
