Israeli Couscous
The starch in the couscous thickens the stew as it cooks creating a creamy and comforting main dish. You won’t believe how easy and tantalizingly delcious this one pot meal is. The cumin and cinnamon provide a wealth of flavor, and for the best results use high quality chicken and chicken stock. This recipe can also be adapted to be made in a rice cooker.

Cornbread Stuffing

That will ensure it soaks up all the flavorful juices to create a sweet and spicy take on this holiday favorite.

Chicken Tortilla Soup
Chicken tortilla soup is a classic Tex-Mex dish that’s perfect comfort food on a cold evening. This recipe is from the Junior League of Dallas’ cookbook, “Stop and Smell the Rosemary,” and it has tons of flavor from onion, tomatoes and shredded chicken cooked in a spicy, smoky broth. Serve this over crunchy tortilla chips and top with cheese. Want more heat? Up the amount of spices used.

Vegetable Bean
Admittedly, it’s not the prettiest vegetable dish. But, I swear to you, it tastes and smells a lot better than it looks. I guess the dried red kidney bean was sort of an unfortunate choice (color-wise), so feel free to substitute another kind of dried bean for this soup if purplish-brown doesn’t do it for you.
