Chipotle Chocolate Chili Okay, for any of you who have been reading for awhile, you’ll know that I have uber-picky eaters at my house, namely my husband and my son. So imagine my surprise when I made this chili for the first time last year and both of them ate it up. Willingly. And then they had more. And then my husband told me that this was THE chili recipe he’d been longing for the whole time we’d been married. The bones of this recipe come from Cooking Light.

Baked Breakfast Taquitos with Lime-Chipotle Dip Since our baked taquitos are one of the most popular recipes on our site, Kate suggested the brilliant idea of coming up with a breakfast version! I tinkered until I came up with something delicious and might I say, these are divine. They’re also great make-ahead food and they’re freezer friendly so check out the end of the post for those details. This recipe starts out with super creamy scrambled eggs. Add some seasonings and then gently fold the eggs in your hot skillet to scramble them. Remove them from the heat and add pepperjack cheese, diced roasted red bell peppers, sliced green onions, and cilantro. Gently fold the egg mixture together and douse it with a little hot sauce Place egg mixture on soft flour tortillas. Roll them up, brush with a little oil and bake in the oven to perfection. While the taquitos are baking you can whip up your dipping sauce. Put it all together and you’ve got a killer brunch, breakfast, or dinner! 16 6″ flour tortillas cooking spray or olive oil

Edible Landscaping: Organic Gardening And Landscape Design Photos du journal How To: Work with Canned Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce Every time I write a post including canned chipotle peppers I think we should really have a resource post for those who aren’t familiar with them or might even be afraid to try something new. So here we go! What are they? Chipotles are small peppers (often jalapenos), usually 2-3 inches long that have been dried by a smoking process that gives them a dark color and a distinct smoky flavor. Where do I find them? Are they spicy? Is there an alternative? How do I handle them? Most recipes call for a very small amount and I feel like it’s a waste to buy an entire can. Me too! Line an ice cube tray with plastic wrap. I really like to have my sauce and my peppers separated because I have a lot of recipes where I just use the sauce, and others where I use the peppers, and some where I use both. I pulse it a few times until they’re very finely minced. Use a teaspoon or Tablespoon to measure your sauce and/or peppers into the tray. Then I put in the peppers, by teaspoons. Southwest Burgers

No dig gardens - how to do no dig gardening by gardening the no dig way! The You Grow Girl Guide to Shopping for Seed Starting Gear at the Dollar Store While I will always promote gleaning your gardening gear from the recycling bin or second-hand via garage sales and thrift stores, there are times when buying new is required. A lot of gardeners looking to save money have been turning to the dollar store over the past few years, especially since many chains have been expanding their gardening aisles and selection has grown. For that reason I have put together a guide to products that I have purchased in my local stores and have found to be useful and of decent quality. Oddly enough, much of the best garden gear is not found in the actual gardening aisle so it helps to think outside the box and look around the entire store for objects in the housewares, craft, and stationary aisles that might suit your needs. Recommended Products Plastic Dish Pan Basin: These bins are fantastic for a variety of purposes and I keep a few on hand. What Not to Buy Seeds: They’re often of unknown origin and suspect quality.
