Chorizo and Sriracha Bean Chili

A hearty one pot Chorizo and ground beef chili featuring Bush's Limited Time Sriracha Beans. #BushsBeans #srirachabeans #spon
Winter here in North Texas seems to have arrived overnight. Up until last weekend our weather had been pretty mild and fall like. But Tuesday night we received a strong cold front dropping the temperature drastically. 

We always get so excited for fall weather, but it seems like we go straight from summer into winter in a blink of an eye.  All I can say is that's how we roll here in Texas. As the weather starts to cool down, it's time to put up the barbecue grill and pull out all of our favorite soups, stew and chili recipes.  

To kick off winter and chili season, I decided to try my hand at a new chili recipe. Chorizo & Sriracha Bean Chili to be exact! I'll be honest Sriracha sauce and anything with Sriracha really isn't for me. I love spicy food, but I just don't care for the bite that comes along with Sriracha sauce.  

I was a little hesitant about adding Bush's® New Sriracha Beans into my chili, but I was pleasantly surprised at the end result. In fact, I was shocked at just how much my family and I loved this new chili recipe! Bush's® Sriracha Beans are pinto beans cooked in a spicy and tangy garlicky Sriracha sauce. Besides chili these new beans are also great as a side dish served with beef, chicken or pork.   

I used a combination of Chorizo sausage and ground beef in this recipe. The chorizo along with Sriracha beans gave this chili a bit of kick, but it wasn't overpowering at all. I made this chili on the stove top in just under 45 minutes, but this recipe can easily be adapted for your slow cooker. As the cold weather sets in I hope you'll give this new Chorizo and Sriracha Bean Chili recipe a try.  

Let's get started on this easy recipe. To start, heat the olive oil in a dutch over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and saute until tender and soft. Add the chorizo sausage and ground beef and cook until browned (breaking the meat up as it cooks). Drain off any grease. Add the beef broth, tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili seasoning packet and beans. Mix to combine.

 
Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 - 40 minutes.

Ladle into bowls and serve with shredded cheese, fresh cilantro, lime juice and avocado slices.

Cinnamon-Raisin Christmas Bread

A beautiful Christmas braided gift bread filled with, brown sugar, cinnamon, golden raisins and pecans. 
Christmas is right around the corner! Are you looking for a last minute gift for family and friends? Do you love giving and receiving sweet and festive treats? This Cinnamon-Raisin Christmas Bread is the perfect Christmas gift from your kitchen.  

This fuss free holiday bread starts with Rhodes frozen rolls or frozen white bread, then filled with a buttery cinnamon- raisin- pecan filling and topped with a simple vanilla glaze. This festive yeast bread looks impressive, but is very easy to make, especially using frozen bread dough.      

 
Wrap this Christmas Bread in clear plastic wrap, add a festive holiday bow and tag for easy gift giving. This festive bread would make a wonderful gift for family, friends, neighbors or your child's teacher. Who wouldn't love to receive this beautiful Christmas Gift Bread.

 
If cinnamon, raisins and pecans are not for you, try using a lightly sweetened cream cheese filling with dried cranberries (cherries) and white chocolate chips sprinkled on top. Both versions are delicious.  I hope you enjoy this festive bread as much as I do.

Mini Pumpkin Ice Cream Pies - Thanksgiving with Breyers

Rich and creamy mini pumpkin ice cream pies that come together quickly and easily with Breyers vanilla ice cream. #Breyers #thanksgiving #ad
I can't believe that Thanksgiving is less than one week away! Hopefully everyone has their holiday menu planned out. I know I do, but I'm still tossing around a few dessert ideas. I love having a variety of desserts for Thanksgiving, so today I'm sharing a nontraditional Thanksgiving dessert that I think you'll love. 

Mini Pumpkin Ice Cream Pies!!!! I know ice cream seems a bit strange for Thanksgivings, but when my friends over at Breyers® asked me to share a recipe showcasing how their ice cream fits into our Thanksgiving dinner, how could I pass up that delicious challenge.   

I love surprising my family and friends with holiday treats, so I'm really excited about this recipe. These mini pumpkin ice cream pies start with Breyers® rich and creamy vanilla ice cream mixed with, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie creamer, brown sugar and cinnamon filled inside mini graham cracker crusts. 

I love Breyers® Ice cream, especially their Natural Vanilla. The vanilla that goes into Breyers® products is 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified and comes from sustainable vanilla farms in Madagascar, so you know it's good. 

My local grocery store was out of the Natural Vanilla, but
Breyers® offers four vanilla varieties, so I went with their homemade vanilla. The consistency is super creamy with a homemade taste that's perfect for my mini pumpkin ice cream pies.   

I added a variety of delicious toppings to finish off these mini ice cream pies...... I couldn't resist! I sprinkled a combination of butterscotch and milk chocolate chips, caramel sauce, and a dollop of whipping cream. I think they turned out so pretty and festive. The caramel, chocolate and butterscotch chips compliment the pumpkin perfectly.  

Move over traditional baked Thanksgiving pies because there's a new pie in town....... Pumpkin Ice Cream pie and it is delicious!!! Your guests will love this festive little pumpkin treat. Now lets get started on this easy festive  ice cream dessert. 

You'll need the following ingredients: Breyersvanilla ice cream (any variety), pumpkin pie or pumpkin spice creamer, mini prepared graham cracker crusts, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, cinnamon, butterscotch and chocolate chips, caramel sauce and whipping cream (for garnish). 

Start by preparing the pumpkin pie ice cream, remove the vanilla ice cream from the freezer and thaw until slightly softened.

Add the ice cream to a large mixing bowl or kitchen aid mixer. Add the pumpkin puree, creamer, brown sugar, cinnamon and mix well. Add the mixture to a plastic container and cover with a lid. Freeze the pumpkin pie ice cream until it's semi-soft. Remove ice cream from freezer and add 1/4 cup (half of a ice cream scoop) of the pumpkin pie ice cream to each mini graham cracker crust.  

Smooth the top after adding the ice cream. I placed the mini pies back into the freezer for about 15 minutes before adding the toppings.

Drizzle the caramel syrup on top and sprinkle with chocolate and butterscotch chips. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and additional caramel sauce. Store mini pumpkin ice cream pies covered in the freezer until ready to serve.

Store mini pumpkin ice cream pies covered in the freezer until ready to serve. Remove ice cream pies 30 minutes before serving. Serve slightly thawed.
