We love a great pot of chili and just about always have some left over for the next day. One of the awesome dishes that I make with the left over chili is a Frito Pie. I have been making Frito Pie for more years than I can count and it was one of our favorite dishes on Friday Night Football Nights when the kids were in school. The other day I made this awesome pot of Garden Chili and of course we had lefts overs and I thought why not make a Frito Garden Pie. It was out of this world delicious, wish I had thought of this a long time ago.

Wonderful garden vegetables in the pot with some great spices and we have a garden to table treat for anytime of the year. This recipe started one rainy summer morning after I gathered the vegetables from the garden. As I began to clean the vegetables I had the thought that a nice garden chili would be delicious with all these fresh vegetables. As the chili began to simmer later in the morning, I knew that this would be a great pot of chili and so it is, we loved it and will be making this recipe the year round.

It's Green Chili season here and many of the open air markets are roasting Green Chilies. The smell of the chilies roasting is amazing and the flavor of the chili is one of my favorites. Today we are preparing our Green Chili Chop Steak that is made with our roasted green chilies and topped off with a great Green Chili Sauce. We will be serving our steak with a great Refried Bean Hash making this a very special plate of food.

When I cook a pot of Pinto Beans I know that we will be making more than one meal from those beans. One of the many recipe's that we enjoy is the Refried Bean Hash, this is a great dish that can be used as a delicious side, a crowd pleasing dip and it make's my favorite Bean Burrito, plus a great Tostada.
With all these possibilities today we are making the hash, dip and burrito.

Some of the schools here started the end of last week and the rest will start this coming week. Time to slow down going through those school zones and watch for the little ones in the cross walks. It's time to think about after school treats and kid friendly family suppers. If you are new to meal planning or just thinking about meal planning this is a great time to get started, it will save you time, money.
