Spicy Cajun Chicken Wings

spicy cajun wings

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4.5/5

The chicken was cooked really nicely. The BBQ sauce we decided to use was this super spicy Mrs. Renfro’s Ghost Pepper BBQ sauce. The sauce for this chicken was to die for!! Though, next time, we will use less Cajun seasoning because it was a bit too salty.

Ingredients needed:

3 lb chicken wings
1/4 c Cajun seasoning
1 c homemade or favorite BBQ sauce
1 T sriracha sauce
2 T fresh lime juice
Fresh parsley, minced

One-Pot Chicken and Dirty Rice

chicken and dirty rice

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5

This had a good amount of spiciness to it! The broth didn’t soak up the way it was supposed to but I didn’t mind. I thought it was still delicious. The chicken was super tender and the broth, that wasn’t even supposed to be there, was so flavorful.

Ingredients needed:

1 t garlic powder
1 1/2 t paprika
1/2 t dried minced onion
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1/2 t oregano
1/4 t red pepper flakes
1 t lemon juice
3 T Olive oil
1 link of andouille sausage sliced into 1/4″ slices
4 bone-in skin on chicken thighs
1 medium yellow onion diced
1 jalapeno pepper seeded and diced
2 celery stalks diced
1/4 t cayenne pepper
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 cup DRY long-grain rice
2 1/4 cup chicken stock or broth
Sliced green onions for garnish
Fresh parsley for garnish

Beef Stroganoff

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5

This was EXCELLENT!!! I loved that it tasted a bit different than when it’s made with dairy products. I loved this sauce made out of raw cashews–so yummy. I can not wait until we make this dish again. I’d seriously have it next week again but boyfriend doesn’t LOVE beef stroganoff the way I do.

Ingredients needed:

2 T olive oil
1-1.5 lbs thinly-sliced steak or ground beef
1 small (or 1/2 a large) white or yellow onion, thinly sliced
8 oz thinly sliced cremini or baby bella mushrooms
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 T gluten-free flour
1/2 c dry white wine (or 1/2 cup more beef broth)
1 1/2 c beef broth
1 T Worcestershire sauce

One-Pot American Goulash


Rating: ⭐️⭐️ 2.5/5

The noodles needed to be cooked longer than the recipe says to, some were hard at first but softened up as it sat in the warm pot. It wasn’t super flavorful, just tasted like tomato sauce, meat, and noodles which is a good combo on it’s own–there was no POP to this dish, very bland.

Ingredients needed:

1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 t minced garlic
2 c water
28 oz crushed tomatoes
2 t oregano
2 t basil
2 c elbow macaroni, uncooked

  1. Those look great. I’m a huge fan of Mrs. Renfros but I hadn’t seen that BBQ sauce. Their habanero salsa is one of our favourites. There are only a couple of stores in the city that carry it so whenever I pass by one of them I always grab one.

    1. We love that salsa too, that’s how we knew the BBQ sauce would be good!!! It was our first time trying it but we trusted her. 🙂 I don’t think I ever saw Mrs. Renfro’s in Minnesota but every Walmart and the main grocery stories carry it here. YAY!


  2. Omg those spicy wings look amazing! I love chicken, and I especially like it if there is spice to it. The last one looks good too. My mom makes that a good bit, but we just all it macaroni soup.

    1. Mmm, they were so good. ❤ I love spicy everything! Lol, I had never tried it before, it seemed like just spaghetti in meat sauce with elbows instead? I bet your mom's is much better though lol.
