Dad’s Tavern Chili

Dad’s Tavern Chili by Salad Foodie

As an adolescent I was commissioned by my dad to make a huge pot of chili for his tavern weekly, and I earned fifty cents a batch doing so!

About 9 cups of raw vegetables are needed. When…

Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup

Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup by Caryn Talty

This butternut squash and sweet potato soup is more savory and less sweet tasting. I love making butternut squash in the fall. I usually buy fresh butternut squash and dice it and leave it in the fridge. On the day I make my butternut squash and sweet potato soup this makes my prep time much faster. It is dairy, gluten and corn free,…

Hala Kahiki means Pineapple, this is a tropical pineapple chili. It's a nice change from regular chili. It sweet and tangy. My son still eats it with tortilla chips but King's Hawaiian sweet rolls are nice with this recipe.

Tex-Mex Meatball Soup

Tex-Mex Meatball Soup by Salad Foodie

A hearty and colorful soup which can be cooked in about 30 minutes. Choose your meat type - beef, sausage, poultry, or a blend if preferred. Using crushed tortilla chips in meatball mixture is a nice way to bump up the corn flavor as well as use up the chip crumbles too small to serve.
