Jalapeno Buttermilk Biscuits

DELICIOUS easy to make Jalapeno Buttermilk Biscuits recipe!  Recipe includes step by step pictures!  These Southern style homemade biscuits are made from scratch with diced up jalapeno peppers.  They are best served with a warm comfort food casserole!

Want to know a true story?  I made these buttermilk biscuits twice.  In one week.  I nearly ate them all.  I’m thinking about making them again.   Right now.

The Best Buttermilk Biscuits!

These buttermilk biscuits are what magical bread dreams (we all have them, right?) are about.  They’re flaky, they’re moist, they’re full of flavor and you just can’t get enough of them.   More specifically these are buttermilk biscuits which makes them ultra deluxe and ultra moist.   Like my gif shows, buttermilk makes everything better, don’t you agree?

Jalapeno Buttermilk Biscuits

These biscuits also have jalapeno peppers in it for a slight bite of heat.  The jalapenos are a great balance for that buttermilk giving it a little something special.  I chop the jalapenos up pretty fine so they’re evenly distributed and not overwhelming.   Between these biscuits and candied jalapenos I’m eating quite a bunch of jalapenos this Summer!

I love beans in my chili so I had to add both black beans and kidney beans.  Also I love using ground turkey for chili as a healthy alternative to ground beef.

So what makes this Chili Mexican? Well we’re going to spice it up with green chiles, salsa verde, cumin and we’re going to throw corn into this!  If you want you can even throw avocado, shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream on top when it’s done!

Cheap Dinner Recipes for $5 or Less

50+ Cheap Dinner Recipes Ideas for $5 or Less.  This is the ultimate list for easy recipes for families on a budget! Also provides tips on how to grocery shop for dinner on a budget and save money! Bookmark this page!

Can we have some real talk?  

Who doesn’t need a budget nowadays?

With rent, health insurance, student loan debt and childcare costs on the rise – does anyone actually have money to save nowadays?  With living costs increasing, but salaries not on the rise, we all need to be crafty with dinner recipes.     

If you’re looking at starting to budget your dinner meals, then you’ve come to the right place.  Maybe you’re looking for a full week’s worth of cheap dinner recipes, or maybe you’re just looking for 1-2 recipes a week. Either way, these recipes will save your family money!

How to Make Cheap Dinners

Here are some tips on creating dinner recipes on a budget:

  • Always look at what’s on sale.  Look at your grocery ad online before you head to the store.  
  • Improvise your meals depending on what’s on sale.  If the recipe calls for broccoli and it’s not on sale, but cauliflower is on sale, use cauliflower instead.
  • Make a list.  Decide before going to the store what supplies you need.  Don’t go off the list.  
  • Buy in season fruits and vegetables.   If they’re out of season, they will cost a lot more.
  • Visit farmers markets or vegetables stands for better deals.   
  • Buy in bulk if at all possible.  If you use rice often, buy a 15 pound bag of rice instead of buying small bags.  The same goes for beans, soaking beans overnight is going to save you lots of money instead of buying canned beans.
  • Think about leftovers.  If you’re cooking for a family of 2 or 3, can you make enough to last you 2 meals?  Maybe you need to buy a $2 loaf of French bread to last you the additional dinner (and you can freeze bread for later meals!).
  • Grow your own food, if at all possible.  For a pack of tomato seeds that cost $1, you can can enough tomato sauce to last you a year!
  • Buy vegetables in bulk and freeze them! If green beans are on sale, buy a few pounds and freeze them!  Here’s how to freeze green beans.
  • Buying meat in family packs is significantly cheaper than buying 1 serving.  I always buy the family pack of meat and freeze in individual bags once I get home from the store. 
  • Learn to love your slow cooker!  The crockpot can provide cheap and easy meals for families!

BAKED Easy Stuffed Pepper Casserole made with green peppers! This dinner dish uses my Mother’s famous stuffed pepper recipe but I turned it into a casserole to make it quicker and easier. It’s filled with ground beef, green peppers, diced tomatoes, rice and smothered in mozzarella cheese.

Growing up one of my Mother’s favorite meals to make was stuffed peppers.  She sure loved making those.  Whenever I go back to visit my father I always ask him to think of a meal or two he wants me to make for him and usually always one of his favorites are Mother’s stuffed peppers.

What isn’t there to love about stuffed peppers?  Fresh peppers, meat, tomato sauce, rice and mozzarella cheese.   Yes, please!   The seasonings add so much flavor and you can make it as spicy or mild as you want.

Stuffed Pepper Casserole Recipe

With so many green peppers growing in the garden I wanted to take my usual stuffed pepper recipe but turn it into Stuffed Pepper Casserole.  I wanted it have the original taste, but I wanted to throw some more greens in there like spinach.  

Plus it’s a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies, almost without them realizing it. Growing your own veggies is a great way to get anyone excited about veggies. Plus, they taste so much better than store-bought! Start with organic plants and you’ll have your own inexpensive supple of organic veggies to fill your meals.

I hope you had a great weekend!  This past Sunday we cheered the runners on outside our apartment during the NYC Marathon! The weather was chilly and the raindrops were falling so I knew we were going to have a comforting slow cooker Sunday night meal!  

I made this Crockpot Salisbury Steak with Cream of Mushroom Soup and it was the perfect dish to say goodbye to the weekend with. This Slow Cooker meal is creamy, comforting, hearty and just warms the heart in the way that home cooked meals should.

This is one of my favorites simple weeknight meals!

EASY Salisbury Steak Recipe

Salisbury Steak has been one of my favorites since I was a child but I wasn’t in the mood to do a baked salisbury steak, instead I wanted something to throw in the Slow Cooker and make dinner easy. 

 I love creamy slow cooker meals, like Meatball Potato Casserole, and Sweet Potato and Ham Soup, so I gave this a extra creamy gravy made with cream of mushroom soup! 

The actual Salisbury Steak patties are easy to make.  Throw ground beef, dry onion soup mix,  bread crumbs and milk in a bowl and mix around with your hands, and then form the patties. 

Salisbury Steak Made With Ground Beef

A helpful hint: use lean, less fat ground beef.   If you don’t use a lean beef, it’s going to make your creamy gravy more on the greasy side.  This can totally be made with non lean beef, but I think it overall tastes better with a 90/10 blend.   After you shape your steak patties then roll around in a dusting of flour.

I’m back with another stuffing recipe!  So many of you have loved my Amish Potato Stuffing recipe so I decided to share with you another favorite, Blueberry Thanksgiving Stuffing!   Obviously it doesn’t need to be Thanksgiving to make this stuffing, but it is the perfect Thanksgiving side dish!

BLUEBERRY Thanksgiving Stuffing recipe! Traditional homemade vegetarian stuffing with sweet blueberries added in! This comes from a Grandma's vintage cookbook so you know it's going to be the best! It's easy to make and you can make it ahead of time to freeze!

Thanksgiving Side Dish

This is the perfect side stuffing to accompany a main meat, like chicken or turkey.    It’s also the perfect vegetarian side dish because it doesn’t involve any meat products or broths (it’s made with vegetable broth).

This is a vintage stuffing recipe that I have tweaked over the years to fit with our taste buds.  It originally appeared in a old cook book that my husband’s Grandmother gave me. The original recipe included a minced meat that even Google couldn’t tell me what it meant, so I decided to change the meat ingredient to pecans.

Pecans in a stuffing recipe is great because it adds a crunch! Everytime I serve this stuffing recipe, everyone wants to know what the crunch is because they love the small surprise.  And just to note, it’s not a overwhelming crunch, it’s subtle as the recipe only calls for 1/2 cup pecans.
