Lazy Chiles Rellenos Breakfast Casserole

 Lazy Chiles Rellenos from page 24 of The Pioneer Woman Cooks Dinnertime by Ree Drummond. This was a delicious breakfast casserole! Poblano peppers were charred on the grill then peeled and layered with Monterey Jack cheese in a casserole dish. A mixture of eggs and milk seasoned with cayenne and smoked paprika was poured over and baked for about 40 minutes. Served with bacon and a bowl of yogurt, blueberries, and peaches.

Anupy's Butter Chicken

 Anupy's Butter Chicken from the soon-to-be-published cookbook Instant Pot Indian.  We have had a lot of butter chicken from restaurants and recipes made at home. This recipe was spicer than the butter chicken we have had in the past (I added the maximum amount of cayenne and serrano chiles) but was determined by the entire family to be THE BEST butter chicken ever.  All of Anupy Singla's recipes are fantastic but this one is by far the best and it cooks quickly in the Instant Pot.  Check the link in her bio for this and all her other fantastic recipes.

I should have known it was from ATK!  My recipe review is live on the Leite's Culinaria website but here is my official summary of the recipe: "This skillet tortellini with sausage and cherry tomatoes was an amazingly quick, easy, and tasty recipe. And it’ll definitely be on repeat at my house. I usually have all of the ingredients on hand and will keep this recipe for evenings when I am short on time. The entire meal was ready in about 30 minutes. It’s truly a one-pot meal with a minimal amount of clean-up .I really liked that this was a
