Dinner time is complicated enough in a busy family like mine. I want to feed my family healthy, wholesome foods, and instill good eating habits in my growing children. But dinner time is also the time when I’m running to pick up kids from after-school sports, finishing up projects for work, and running low on energy myself. Some days I admit I’m tempted to grab something quick and not-so-good-for-us.
This month, I was sent a copy of the brand new cookbook, Trim Healthy Mama’s Trim Healthy Table By Pearl Barrett and Serene Allison. Trim Healthy Mama’s Trim Healthy Table is published by Harmony Books and is available for purchase now!
This cookbook is filled to the brim with family-friendly recipes that focus not only on making better choices in the kitchen, but also on the value of sitting down together for family dinner. I love “fixing up” old family favorites, and this book had page upon page of family-friendly dishes.
One of the first recipes that caught my eye was a recipe for Creamy Verde Chicken Chili – something totally up my family’s alley. We love Tex-Mex flavors!
When I saw the ingredients list, I admit I was a little skeptical. Okra and cauliflower in chicken chili? I was afraid my kids would turn their noses up at “hidden” healthy ingredients. After all, my kids are teenagers, so it’s not very easy to sneak anything past them!
I was amazed at how easy this recipe was to prepare. I put the chicken, salsa, beans, tomatoes, cauliflower, chicken broth, and seasoning blend* into my pressure cooker. Then I blended together the remaining ingredients and poured the mixture on top of everything. I closed and sealed the lid and turned the pressure cooker on. Then I waited while my house filled with the delicious smells of the Southwest.
I was shocked when my kids started eating that they immediately began commenting on how delicious it was. And then I was even more startled when they all reached for seconds to fill up their bowls again.
We will definitely be making this delicious chicken chili again in the near future. I can’t wait to try more of the recipes in this cookbook! I’m excited to try new ways to feed my family more healthy alternatives, while not sacrificing the time that we have together.
*the frozen small-cut seasoning blend is found in the frozen vegetable section of your grocery store and contains diced onion, celery, and bell pepper.
