- Oven Baked Barbeque Chicken Thighs – Chicken! In the oven! With BBQ sauce! Get in my belly! This easy recipe is quick to pull together.
- Brautwurst – Don’t have a grill? No problem! Bake them in the oven! Growing up, I loved to dip my brautwurst in ranch dressing. Try it – you’ll like it!
- Crockpot Chicken Tacos – This recipe is meant to make chicken for chicken tacos, but I like using any leftover chicken in Skillet Nachos.

I’m always looking for good ways to serve vegetables – are you? If so, here’s a good one for you. They’re called Spanish Style Green beans and I don’t know where I got the recipe, but it’s a keeper! They go well with lots of dishes, not just Mexican ones. And this recipe doubles or triples really easily too – just keep multiplying the amount of beans and tomatoes that you use.
Spanish Style Green Beans
- 2 cans of green beans, drained (French style or cut – use cooked-but-used-to-be-frozen green beans instead, if desired)
- 1 can of diced tomatoes, not drained (I like the petite cut diced tomatoes myself)
- ¼ - ½ onion, diced
- Garlic or garlic powder (optional, but yummy!)
- Olive oil
In sauce pan, put a little bit of olive oil on medium and start cooking the diced onion. Add in a little bit of garlic or garlic powder. Just for a couple of minutes to get them started softening.
Add in the green beans and tomatoes.
Put the lid on and let cook for about 20-30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
