Weeknight Recipes from Strawberry Blondie Kitchen

Weeknight Recipes Meal Plan & Shopping List Rainbow Delicious featuring Strawberry Blondie Kitchen

slow cooker roasted red pepper and tomato soupSlow Cooker Red Pepper and Tomato Soup from Strawberry Blondie Kitchen

Prep Time: 45 minutes Cook Time: 6 hours Total Time: 6 hours 45 minutes

Ingredients: roma tomatoes, red peppers, sweet onion, jalapeno, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, celery, carrot, tomato paste, vegetable broth, sugar, Italian seasoning, parmesan for topping.

I still have tomatoes growing in my garden believe it or not, so I used heirloom tomatoes instead of roma for this and wow, delicious! I didn’t even need to add the bit of sugar recommended in the recipe. This makes great leftovers (if you have any!) You can definitely roast the vegetables the night before to make it quicker to put together at meal time. This recipe uses a slow cooker and an immersion blender.

weeknight recipes chicken nachos with peach salsa
Chicken Nachos with Peach Salsa from Strawberry Blondie Kitchen

Prep Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients: peach, red pepper, jalapeno pepper, green onion, red onion, limes, cilantro, tortilla chips, rotisserie chicken (or chicken breasts, cooked), tomatillo salsa/salsa verde, cheese, lettuce, sour cream.

I love feeding nachos to my family lately. I place the loaded platter in the middle of the table while we all just pig out, the kids think it is great. It is still very easy to me to find delicious peaches right now in California but I know it is not the same everywhere. I’m confident these nachos will still taste good even without peaches; if you can’t find any, just omit. Instead of rotisserie chicken, I cooked and shredded chicken breasts.

weeknight recipes mexican street corn chowder
Mexican Street Corn Chowder from Strawberry Blondie Kitchen

Prep Time: 30 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients: corn, butter, oil, white onion, garlic, jalapeno, chicken stock, chili powder, Parmesan, heavy cream, lime. Toppings: cilantro, chili powder, cotija cheese.

If you preserved any corn from the summer this is a perfect recipe to use them up in! If not, frozen corn works just fine. This recipe also uses an immersion blender, comes together quickly and tastes amazing! I love it topped with cotija cheese and cilantro.

weeknight recipes veggie stuffed shells
Veggie Stuffed Shells from Strawberry Blondie Kitchen

Prep Time: 10 minites Cook Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients: pasta sauce, jumbo pasta shells, olive oil, carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, onion, spinach (frozen), ricotta cheese, Italian cheese blend, ground fennel, salt and pepper.

Stuffed Jumbo Pasta Shells are a family favorite! I love that this recipe is so stuffed with veggies and comes together quickly.

weeknight recipes chorizo chili jalapeno cornbread waffles
Chorizo Chili on Jalapeno Cornbread Waffles from Strawberry Blondie Kitchen

Prep Time: 45 minutes Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes

Ingredients: olive oil, green bell pepper, onion, garlic, jalapeno, cumin, chili powder, oregano, cinnamon, cayenne, ground beef, chorizo, Worcestershire sauce, browning and seasoning sauce, hot sauce, tomato paste, beef broth, bay leaves, diced tomatoes, red kidney beans. For Waffles: flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder, baking soda, milk, butter, eggs, fire roasted corn, jalapeno peppers, cheddar cheese, cilantro.

For this recipe I recommend making the chili ahead of time and then making the waffles at dinner time. My kids love waffles so switching it up and making savory waffles was a fun change. If you are short on time you could always use a pre-made chili and still make the fun cornbread jalapeno waffles!
