My wife is awesome. She does an amazing job taking care of our kids, taking care of the house, taking care of me, all while juggling a couple of part-time jobs. I have no clue how she coordinates it all and stays sane.
Oh, did I mention she makes the kids (and yes me too) lunch every day, and even gets up at the crack of dawn with me to make sure my protein smoothies are ready for me to take with me to the gym?
Like I said, Allie is awesome.
Even when she’s working late or off at a Meet the Teacher’s event at school, she makes sure I can navigate my way through dinner on my own.
The other day I came home from work to this note…
Jason and Ryan had already practiced their instruments and I gave Ryan his meds. So next up was sending Ryan to the shower while I made dinner for myself!
It was already about 7:15 pm and I was exhausted. But my extremely better half had me totally set up. No way I could fail this one.
Yep, it’s a double chili night! Allie had just picked up two of Progresso’s new easy-to-make chili meals! I couldn’t decide between Roasted Vegetable Chili with 3 Beans (totally vegetarian!) and Southwest Style White Chicken Chile with Beans. So I made both!
First up? The South West Style White Chicken!
Here’s how easy it is to make. You open up the bag and pour into a microwave safe bowl (or pot for the stove, but really, why would I choose that over the microwave?). Then you cook it for less than 5 whole minutes.
That gives you just enough time to gather up your additional toppings like cheese (mandatory!), hot sauce, jalapenos tortilla chips and whatever else you’d like!
The finished product! I have to admit, it came out pretty darn amazing looking. But when it comes to food, looks are only half the battle. Time for the taste test!
SCORE! Seriously this is good stuff! It’s the perfect quick meal for a week night, but it’s also something I plan on whipping up for a nice cold football-filled Sunday afternoon. Definitely need to make it a #ProgressoGameDay!
But wait, there’s more! Yep, I also was dying to try the Roasted Vegetable flavor too!
I have to admit, I make a pretty mean vegetarian chili myself. I got the recipe from a friend in college. It’s purely vegetarian and tastes unreal. You’d actually think there’s ground beef in it but there’s not. Thing is, my veggie chili takes about 4-6 hours to cook. And then it’s always better tasting the next day.
So yeah, no way I’m eating dinner at 1 am! Time to open up some Progresso Chili!
Just as easy to make as the other flavor, I poured the Roasted Vegetable Chili into a bowl and prepped my garnishes!
While this one cooked, I prepped the cheese and also diced up some fresh green peppers! Mix in some hot sauce and we’re ready to go!
Another masterpiece if I say so myself. And how did this one taste?
Awww, yeah. Tastes quite different from the Southwest Style Chicken but just as good! Definitely worth keeping a few of these around the house at all times for those weeknights when I need to quickly whip up a healthy and delicious dinner! Not to mention next time I have the guys over on a Sunday for some football!
