Foodie Fridays : Chili Colorado Burritos , Frozen Banana Bites

Pin It!
Is it just me or is stew a hearty fall meal ? I had stew meat in the freezer the other day and was totally not into stew so instead I figured I'd try making Chili Colorado . Mmmm mmm good! I basically threw it together so bear with me on the measurements .

Ingredients : 
2 pounds if stew meat
19 oz can of enchilada sauce 
1 tablespoon of cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1 - 2 teaspoons of chili powder depending on how spicy you want it 
2 beef bullion cubes
2 tablespoons of flour 
Shredded cheese 

Directions : 
1. Combine all ingredients except cheese and flour in a crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours 
2. When meat is fully cooked thicken the sauce by sprinkling flour into sauce and stir well . Make sure you sprinkle it on top instead of dumping the flour in by the spoonful to avoid lumps of flour .
3. Full tortillas with meat mixture and shredded cheese . I also put beans in mine as well but it's totally up to you . 
4. Top burrito with sauce and cheese and melt cheese on top .

These chocolate covered banana bites hit the spot when I'm craving a sweet treat. Although they are covered in chocolate for some reason I feel slightly less guilty eating these since fruit is included lol

Ingredients :
2 bananas
1 cup dark chocolate meltables 
Cookie sheet lines w wax paper 

Directions : 
1. Slice bananas into about 1/2 inch thick rounds 
2. Melt chocolate in the microwave according to package . A good rule of thumb is about 30 seconds, stir , and repeat until chocolate is fully melted 
3. Dip bananas into chocolate and place of wax paper lined cookie sheet.
4 . Place cookie sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes or more until chocolate and bananas are semi frozen

  1. First off the burritos look amazing and I want one right now! Also the banana bites look yummy and I've been meaning to try these. Lastly I use to have the biggest crush on 50! (his body lol)

  2. Yum, I love me some Mexican food!! The burritos look delish, minus the avocado. I'm deathly allergic, but everything else looks like it would make my taste buds dance!

  3. Yummy! I make chocolate and bananas a lot, I always share with my daughter and she puts like three in her mouth so she gets the most haha. I am a huge fan of mexican food (I live in New Mexico) and about 30 minutes away from Colorado so this is perfect :)

  4. We are all about Mexican food here, so I think your taking stew meat and making what you did was genius! YUM!
    Also, those banana bites are exactly what I need for my sweet cravings; a little bit of sweet with a lot of healthy thrown in! My kids would love them too!
