Baked potatoes just got better with my Loaded Broccoli & Cheese Twice Baked Potato!
How good are twice baked potatoes?! I haven’t had one in years but had a craving to create my own this week after reading the latest Food Network Magazine.
So glad I did, what a treat they were. I made a homemade broccoli and cheese sauce that gets mixed into the mashed potatoes before baking again. Seriously I died. Kick your diet to the curb for a day and indulge in these babies!

My Chicken and Black Bean Green Chili Rice Skillet makes the perfect quick and simple weeknight dinner!
I am always looking for quick and simple weeknight dinners and this one I developed last week was a huge success. We love Mexican dinners every week and this was a great addition to add to my rotating menu options.
You can use a rotisserie chicken to save yourself some time, or if you have time I highly suggest grilling up my Taco Lime Chicken. We used it for this recipe and it was the perfect addition with the spices in the rice.
Break out your cast iron skillet and try out this zesty chicken and rice skillet this week!
