Nice weather is coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! By nice, I mean temperatures above 50 on the regular, but we’ll take it here in Michigan. I mean, that’s practically beach weather (my husband’s boss’ children were totally in their pool last weekend. It was in the 30’s). The sun, however, is a big maybe, but let’s hope it makes an appearance more than it does not here in the coming days. 2020, you SO owe us.
I was shocked slash totally honored that my local gym and tennis club shared my most recent cooking demo on their Facebook page. Not only that, but they directed members and page fans to Prevention RD (as in, here!) for recipes. Whaaa!?
IMAGINE THAT! I know, this shouldn’t be so hard to believe. Next month marks YEAR ELEVEN that this blog has been around and for real, that is just difficult to fathom. I practically feel like a founding father (mother) of the WWW.
As it goes every few years, it seems opportunistic to plan for a little face lift. The blog needs it, don’t you think? If you feel so inclined, I would LOVE and APPRECIATE hearing what feedback and suggestions you have for me (the site). I’d also love to be pointed in the direction of some inspiration sites because my goodness, there are some amazing sites out there!
Anyhoodles, welcome to any newcomers! Hope you find some recipes you love – that you family loves…that your fellow Facebook live attendees love. If you want to go straight to a source, you’re in the right place because THIS recipe was a HUGE hit on my last Facebook live cooking demo. As in, people actually said they’d make this recipe and to a food blogger & dietitian, that means the world.
It is also very appropriate for these pantry-clean out days — the days of COVID-19. If you’re anything like me, you might have a can of cream of chicken nearing its expiration in the back of your pantry. Or black beans. Or Rotel. Or corn. Or chicken broth. If you have most of those are all of those…or you’re doing the math to realize this recipe is #budgetfriendly, voila! I dolled it up with some spices and toppings and boy, oh boy! Glad I snuck in this gem before summer temps arrive!
- 2 (15 oz) cans low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 (10.5 oz) can reduced sodium cream of chicken
- 1 (15 oz) can low-sodium corn, drained
- 1 (15 oz) can low sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 (10 oz) can Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chiles)
- 12 oz rotisserie chicken, shredded
- 2 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 2 oz tortilla chips, crushed
- 1 avocado, diced
- juice of 1 lime
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro
- Combine broth, cream of chicken, corn, beans, Rotel,chicken, chili powder, and cumin in a stock pot over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve topped with crushed tortilla chips, ¼ avocado, squeeze of lime juice, and cilantro.
Hi! One suggestion I have for an update would be to add a search feature. As a long time reader, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve recalled a recipe from here that used a certain ingredient (or I have an ingredient that I want to use up) or flavor or but couldn’t quite remember what else was in there or what it was called or exactly what type of category it would go in, and with 11 years of recipes it’s not practical to try to search through them (I’m usually on my phone looking for recipes). Your site is one of my main go-tos on a regular basis and I think a search feature would improve the usability.
Anyway, thanks for the great content all these years! Here’s to many more!
Alisha, thanks so much for the comment! I agree 100%! There actually *is* a search function (it says “Search this website” in the upper right hand side of the page) but I’d never know it was there if it weren’t my page. Will definitely look to improve that feature – thank you for the feedback and reading along! Hope to continue providing go-to recipes!! xo!
Thanks for letting me know! I’ll have to check it out on an actual computer, I’m not able to find it while using my phone. Maybe it’s hidden some place wild, you know how mobile versions of websites don’t always translate well!
I just want to thank you for keeping up the blog with everything else going on in your busy life. I decided to add more meatless meals to our diets, partly because of the expected meat shortages in the coming months. We live in the south, and a good old vegetable plate with cornbread is always appropriate, but is best in the summer when fresh veggies and homegrown tomatoes are plentiful. Your Vegan Jambalaya was perfect for right now, and gave us the meatless dinner I wanted, plus lots of leftovers for my lunches this week. I love leftovers!
Suzette, thank you so much! That means a lot! I love leftovers, too (a perk to the kids refusing good food?!)! Glad the jambalaya was a hit and appreciate you reading along! Hope you continue to find recipes you love!
Great pantry recipe! As for the blog suggestions, please please please do not bury the on-going blog posts, especially on mobile. I’m generally recalling a recent post and trying to find the recipe on my phone to make it. 🙂
Thanks, lady! Just want to be sure I understand — the pages at the bottom that you can click through and get 8 or so recipes that were posted in chronological order…don’t do away with that? 🙂 Got to make my loyal ones happy! 😉
Keep the current and recent blog posts at the top (as it is today). For daily readers. Instead of the trend of prioritizing reusing/older content on top. Hope that makes sense.
