Green Chile Turkey & Rice Bowls

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving Turkey is leftovers!  You can add the turkey to lots of dishes where you would normally use chicken.  These Green Chile Turkey & Rice Bowls are a fun way to help you eat leftovers without having to eat another turkey sandwich!

Sweet & Sour Chicken

I have come to love recipes that can be made in the slow cooker.  I love being able to throw everything together in the morning and come home in the evening to a meal that’s ready to go!  Some meals, such as this one, don’t require quite as long to cook.  If the recipe only needs to cook 4 or 6 hours, I mix it up and ask my husband to put it in the slow cooker and turn it on at lunch! Sweet & Sour Chicken is an excellent addition to your list of slow-cooked dinners!

Sausage Rice

Sausage Rice is so simple to throw together.  It is a one-skillet meal that comes together in about 30 minutes, so it is perfect for a quick weeknight meal.  If you want the dish to come together even quicker, you can use quick cooking rice.  It is easily customizable; you can add a little kick with some pepper flakes or just use a spicy sausage.  Plus, if you can find sausage on sale (sometimes the rolls of sausage are less than $1/lb here!) it is also economical!  At four ingredients and about 30 minutes to the table, you can’t lose!

Chicken Fried Rice

Whenever we have a lot over leftover white rice, I like to put Chicken Fried Rice on the menu.  This recipe also works with chicken, pork, shrimp, or even without protein and as veggie fried rice.  It’s a filling dish that allows you to use just about whatever you want or have on hand.

Cheesy Beans & Rice

Cheesy Beans & Rice has become one of our family’s favorite quick dishes.  It would make a great side, but has enough flavor and substance to stand on its own as a main dish.  Personally, I love to eat the beans & rice with tortilla chips!  Another great thing about this recipe is that you can put it together and refrigerate it to bake later.  Simple and delicious!
