It is clean out the cabinet week! It has also gotten a bit cooler out here which has me wanting some good ole comfort food.
Here’s what we are eating this week.
Monday – Beans and Ham Soup
Tuesday – Tortilla Soup
Wednesday – Red Lentils with Garlic and Onions
Thursday – Enchiladas
Friday – Chili
Saturday – Leftovers
Here’s how I make all of the above.
Beans and Ham Soup
Leftover Ham Bone
Carrots – Diced
Celery – Diced
Onion – Diced
Salt and Pepper
Throw it all in the pot and cover it with water. Boil for 2 plus hours until the beans are done. Pull the ham off of the bone and toss it in.
Chicken cooked and chopped
Can of Corn
Can of Black Beans
Can of Cheddar Cheese Soup
Red Bell Pepper chopped
Jar of Salsa
Tortilla Chips and Cilantro for Garnish
Throw it all in the pot and cook until the raw veggies are tender. (note, I don’t drain the corn or black beans) Throw the chips and cilantro on top and you are done!
Red Lentils with Garlic and Onions
Found this on the Whole Foods website. It is the last comment on the page. Looks yummy.
My friend Angela’s recipe.
King size corn tortillas
Can of niblets corn drained
Can of black beans drained
1 shredded zucchini
Salsa - Pace or some other chunky salsa (1/2 jar)
Some sour cream
Rotisserie chicken - I just shred the breast part
I put some enchilada sauce on the bottom and the top, and then put more cheese on top.
Lean Ground Beef
Can Stewed Tomatoes (with green chilis)

Throw it all in a pot(are you seeing a trend here?) and warm it up. Add some corn bread and you are all set!
