Jump to recipe

Another week and another chance to make the best out of our quarantine situation. Have you surprised yourself with the meals you’ve mead over the last week? who knew we could be so resourceful?. I am trying to cook bigger meals and have enough left overs to either freeze for later or give them a make over. Example A “Green Chicken Empanadas”. This required zero cooking since I used left over rotisserie chicken, left over beans and even frozen pie crust! Look at me, using all my left overs and avoiding food waste.

I made this filling because like I said, I wanted to use my left overs but you can easily customize this recipe. Left over fajitas and sour cream? barbecue pull pork and cheddar? left over salmon and potatoes? Oh, the possibilities!

Just look at these beauties as they just came out of the oven.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
