Easy Summer Salsa Recipe

Jamie here, my husband’s favorite words that come out of my mouth are probably “I think I’ll make Salsa today!”  His face lights up, as do the boys’, with unadulterated joy.  It’s an understatement to say that my whole family loves Mexican food – so when I make my salsa recipe, I usually do a triple batch.  That way I can use it over the next few days in any other Mexican recipes I wind up cooking.  Plus – it tastes even BETTER the second day…

Mexican Recipe: Cheesy Tortilla Soup

Cheesy Tortilla Soup

Here’s another recipe a friend of mine posted on facebook this week, Cheesy Tortilla Soup.  I can’t wait to try this, it looks fantastic.  Nothing like a hot bowl of soup on a chilly winter day.  I would pair this with tortilla chips, or possibly Mexican Cornbread.  If you have a recipe you’d like to share with us, we might feature it on the blog.  Send an email to time2save@hotmail.com with “recipe” in the subject line.  Include detailed instructions along with photos.

Low Carb Chicken Recipes: Baked Chicken Fajitas

Chicken Fajitas

Recently, I’ve seen all kinds of yummy looking recipes all over facebook.  Since many are shared, and not linked to the original source I am a little leary of trying the recipe.  Anyone can type up a recipe, and find an image that appears to go with it.  So, when a recipe gets my attention I prefer to test it out in my kitchen.  Of course I am not a great recipe follower, so I tend to change up the ingredients a bit to suit my family’s taste.  We loved this recipe,  although it was a little spicy.  I  made homemade Mexican Brown rice to serve with the Baked Chicken Fajitas to complete the meal.  If you are looking for low carb chicken recipes,  I would suggest serving the chicken fajitas in lettuce wraps or whole grain tortillas.  Since we  completed our AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge, we are still following the principles of the eating plan so this recipe worked perfectly.  My husband and I both feel so much better and he has lost 43lbs (see our story here).
