I’m welcoming this first Thursday night of NFL football in right with these Sweet and Spicy BBQ Chicken Quesadillas with Pineapple Salsa. Is anyone else overly stoked about the start of football season? Honestly, everything about football season gets me excited. Cozier nights, lazy Sundays, and an excuse to eat chicken wings and drink beer at 11:00am, it’s just the best. Granite, my team always loses, but I’ll never give up hope 😉 Especially if I’m presented with great food and good drinks. With my love for fall it’s no surprise I love throwing game day get together’s, but sometimes game days are during the week and I don’t always have time to make wings, chili, or really any time consuming dish. That’s where these quesadillas come into play. With only taking 25-30 minutes from start to finish they land in my go to dinner’s for any weeknight gathering. They are so quick, so easy, and SO good. These quesadillas are perfect amount of smokey, sweet, and spicy all in one, which in my opinion, is the best of combinations.
Loaded Sweet Potatoes. Happy Friday ya’ll! I feel like the weekends are totally meant for the “treat yo self” mentality. You’re finally free of work (hopefully), you’ve made fun plans to do something, whether thats to see friends, have a night out or to just relax and enjoy life. Unfortunately for us going out and having fun, isn’t an option right now due to the global pandemic. We’ve had to become really creative in what we can do around the house. Puzzles, bingeing Netflix, painting, and of course LOTS of cooking.
Tacos are all the rage right now, and I for one am totally okay with it. I’m always in search of some good a** tacos or on the hunt for a killer new recipe to try at home.
Tacos aren’t just for Tuesdays anymore guys.
In my search I stumbled upon these bad boys.
Mexican Street Corn Chicken Tacos.
Fried chicken. The Mother Teresa of the south. The Beyonce of soul food. The love of my life.
…okay maybe not the last one. But fried chicken is damn good, obviously, but wanna know what’s even better?
Nashville hot chicken.
Listen ya’ll this stuff is GOOD. So good, I’ve eaten it twice a day on more than one occasion (oops). So when I was actually in Nashville over the summer, of course I had to hunt down the best of the best. And let me just tell you. It was fire (literally and figuratively).
