Mint Chocolate Chip "Nice" Cream

This recipe was a huge hit with my family, especially my husband and oldest son. They couldn't get enough of it. 

I have been trying to eat healthier lately and I am following Clean& On her YouTube channel she shared this recipe:

We didn't have semi sweet chocolate chips, those are a bit healthier. I would recommend you use those.

P.S. Make sure you just put a little bit of peppermint extract in it. Our first batch, we put in too much, and it was pretty over powering. :)

Crockpot Chili for Halloween Night

This recipe turned out so yummy! Secret Ingredient: Just a kick of Cinnamon
There's nothing like a warm meal on a cold night!

Every Halloween we have been having Chili around the time we go trick or treating, as a tradition. This year we had mandarin oranges for snack before we left and Chili, Healthy Caramel apples, my homemade wassle in the cauldron with dry ice, and healthified popcorn when we got back. It was a great night. The kids were full on good food, so they only had a few pieces of candy with their popcorn as they watched their scary Scooby Doo movie.

On the stove in a pan on medium heat add:
1 Tbsp. Coconut oil
1 onion, chopped
1 C. carrots, chopped
1/4 C. celery, chopped
1 sweet red pepper, chopped
1 tsp. garlic, diced
Cook until the onions are translucent. 

Transfer to a crockpot.

Then add:
1 can diced tomatoes in juice
15 oz cans, drained: 
Great White Northern Beans
Pinto Beans
Kidney Beans
Black Beans
1 15 oz can of your favorite chili
2 C. water

Then add:
1 Tbsp. Chili powder
1 tsp. Cumin
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper

Stir and let cook for 6-8 hours on low, or 3-4 hours on High. 
Can serve with corn bread or chips with cheese, chopped green onions, etc.

Healthier Chicken Enchiladas

Yesterday I made some homemade tomato sauce (onions & garlic saut'ed on the stove, then I added tomatoes blended in the blender, tomatoes diced and placed in the pan, and I added salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning) and I also had leftover chicken. I decided to make these.

We have been trying to eat extra healthy lately, it just helps us feel so much better. So, I took the ingredients from the original enchiladas and changed it up a bit to make them healthier. 

1/2 can Cream of chicken soup
2 C. tomato sauce
1/2 C. chopped tomatoes
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
Dash of salt & pepper
8-10 whole wheat or whole grain tortillas
2 C. shredded chicken
2 C. rice (to make it healthier you could use brown rice)
1 1/2 C. shredded cheese
1 can black beans

Lightly oil a 9X13 glass baking dish. In a bowl mix the soup, tomato sauce, tomatoes, salt & pepper, and seasoning. Place (hotdog style) a layer of chicken, rice, beans, sauce, and a sprinkle of cheese. Roll up and place in pan. Once you have you're pan with the rest of sauce mixture and cheese. 

Place in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until the edges of the tortilla are nice and crispy and the cheese is melted.
