Here is another round of What’s For Dinner This Week! Again, this isn’t a diet plan or anything like that, just an effort to eat whole and relatively healthy. My criteria for recipes is that they are easy, healthy, and family friendly. If you missed the other meal plans, here is Week 1 and here is Week 2.
Chicken and Peppers
I shared this recipe a while back and I am the first to admit, it’s not much of a recipe! It’s a very easy one dish pan of sautéed chicken and colored peppers. My family likes it, though, and many times I will add a greek flare by wrapping the chicken and peppers in a tortilla for the kids topped with some tzatziki sauce.
This is the best Taco Soup recipe! It’s different every time I make it, depending on what type of diced tomatoes and beans I use. I have found my family likes things on the spicy side so they like it when I use hot diced tomatoes and hot chili beans. You can cook this on the stove top, but I usually throw everything in the crockpot and let it heat all day. We like to serve it with tortilla chips, Fritos, shredded cheese, and sour cream. Granted, that turns it into a not so healthy dish so skip the toppings if you’re on a diet!
This soup is also good for a crowd. Serve it with our AMAZING Jalapeño Margaritas!

Miss Katie’s Jambalaya
Another recipe from a friend. We all love this one! Not everyone in my family likes shrimp, so I stick to chicken and sausage, but shrimp would be a great addition or substitution.
