Slow-Cooker Chicken Mango Curry

Posted by Anthony on March 12, 2015 in Entree


Serves: 6-8

Time: 30 min (active), 4-9 hrs (inactive)

Difficulty: Easy

Having a few days off of work, I decided to tackle another new recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge. Seeking inspiration for a new and healthy recipe, I sought out the help of my sister, who shared this recipe with me. I’m not entirely sure where she got the recipe, but I’m sure glad she shared it with me, as the end result was absolutely delicious. It’s not too spicy, and is a nice cross between a curry and stew, with the mango adding a nice sweet touch, and the cashews giving a bit of crunch. All-in-all, it was a great addition to my 50 in 15 Challenge, and proved to be a delicious recipe I’ll no doubt make again in the future.

Wet Burrito with Spanish Rice

Wet Burrito with Spanish Rice

Serves: 4

Time: 45 min

Difficulty: Easy

A few days ago, my wife suggested I make Wet Burritos for dinner some time, which is one of her childhood comfort foods. She filled me in on the typical fillings and toppings that she preferred and left the rest to me. I decided to make some homemade Spanish Rice for part of the filling, as well as a side. And since I have actually never made homemade Spanish Rice or Wet Burritos, this dish also qualified for another recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge.

The result was absolutely delicious — a true Mexican-inspired comfort food that will be added to my culinary repertoire of go-to recipes!

Having found lots of recipes and variations for Beef Wellington, we ended up using a mix of them in the final dish.
