Holy Moly Guacamole!

Game day rolls around and it is SO easy to just order a few pizza’s and break out the chips and salsa and call it good!  I do think it is nice to also offer something homemade alongside all of the traditional game day fare! As the NFL Playoffs are here and the Super Bowl is around the corner…this Guac is a must have for your game day offerings! It is fresh, delicious, and will disappear before your very eyes!

We had a couple friends over for the Seahawks first playoff game against the Saint’s and I made enchiladas and this guacamole. I don’t want to assume…but I think it might have made all the difference in helping Seattle to a Win…that and our team playing AWESOME! Enjoy!

Mexican Chicken Soup…Perfect for a Cool Fall Evening!

A friend recently asked me to post a few more Fall Soup Recipes and I happen to have just made one that is Excellent!  It is really good for anytime of year and is INCREDIBLY easy to make!  It is also a very healthy meal and perfect for a cool fall evening!  This is a throw everything in the pot and dinner is ready in an hour kind of meal!   The soup is quite tasty on its own, but the secret to making it FANTASTIC is in the garnishes!  Sour cream, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, avocados, chips, black olives, cilantro…the list is really endless!  I hope you will enjoy this quick delicious soup and that it will keep you and yours cozy and warm on many a wonderful fall evening!

Naughty Enchiladas…but I won’t tell!

I have a confession to make to all of you lovely people who might be readers of Chocolate Covered Everything.  SOMETIMES, I make food that is naughty, naughty, naughty!   My definition of a naughty recipe is when people ask for it, I feel slightly embarrassed as the ingredients are maybe not the MOST healthy…you might even call them naughty!  I think you get the picture!  Now with regards to this enchilada recipe…I do realize there are many more healthy ways to make enchiladas (and I have I promise!)…but I am of the belief  that every once in awhile it is ok to be a little naughty!  This is one of those times!  Trust me.  I won’t tell on you…

I want to preface this story with the statement that my husband is most definitely NOT a greedy person.  However, for some reason when I make these enchiladas, he turns into a greedy little enchilada hoarder!  I have invited people over for dinner to share these enchiladas and he has been so adamant about not sharing that I ended up serving something else!  haha…I have to admit it does make me feel good that he loves them that much and like clockwork, as soon as the enchiladas are all eaten the greedy little enchilada hoarder retreats back into his little tortilla cave!    Now on to the recipe!
