Stuffed Peppers with Chiliville Chili

Trick or Treat?  Here is a fun meal that kids of all ages and grown ups will enjoy.  I had posted a separate blog about how much I loved Johnsonville's Chiliville Chile recipe recently.  I had some chili left over and made some cute stuffed peppers that are perfect for Halloween.

Tater Tot Taco Salad

This is a family favorite recipe that I have been making for years now. I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com It is actually the only kind of salad that I can get my boys to eat.  It may seem odd to mix tater tots into a taco salad but it really tastes amazing.  The great thing about this recipe is you can add whatever toppings you like, I like to add diced tomatoes and onions.   I usually serve this with ranch dressing and sometimes I will mix half ranch and half salsa for the dressing.  This recipe is very forgiving so you can make it your own but just be sure not to leave out the Ore-Ida tater tots because this is what really sets this recipe apart from other taco salads.

Chiliville Chili

I have tried a lot of chili recipes and I have to say this is one is excellent.  It is quick and super easy to make too!  It makes a thick hearty chili that my family really loved.  This is the first time that I have ever made chili using sausage and it really made this dish amazing.  I used Mild Italian sausage from Johnsonville and this recipe can also be found on the Johnsonville website.

Pumpkin Latte

Save yourself some time, money and calories by making this  healthier, lower fat version of  Pumpkin Spice Latte at home.  So easy to make and delicious too! Plus as an added bonus pumpkin is a nutritional powerhouse packed full of vitamins and fiber and tastes great too!  Enjoy!

I just love the fall season...the cool, crisp weather..leaves changing and falling...back to school..holidays just around the corner.  And nothing says welcome to fall quite like comforting pumpkin whoopie pies.   I love all things pumpkin flavored and these whoopie pies are simply devine!  (Recipe from Allrecipes.com)
