An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.

Fall fruit adds a twist and replacing mayo with low-fat yogurt makes it a little more healthy. This is great for leftover chicken.

Easy Beer Bread
Very Good 4.0/5
(10 ratings)

You will be hard pressed to find an easier recipe for bread than this one!!! Pretty much any beer will work in this recipe, though i've had fun with beers like Bell's Cherry Stout and Big Sky Brewing's Moose Drool...so don't be afraid to throw in a bottle of your favorite intriguing beer! Just keep in mind, the same rule applies to cooking with beer as applies to cooking with wine: if you wouldn't drink it, don't cook with it!

This tortilla soup tastes better than anything you can get at a restaurant. And it's healthy too! Don't let the long list of ingredients fool you. All you do is dump everything into the slow cooker and walk away.
