Make this Southwestern corn chowder for a cozy dinner at home! This vegetarian corn chowder recipe is fresh, wholesome and delicious. It’s perfect for cool late summer or fall evenings when fresh corn is at its peak. Or, you can make it any time with frozen corn.

I wanted the corn flavor to shine and balanced its sweetness with some Southwestern spice. You’ll find bell pepper, poblano and chili powder in this atypical chowder. I promise you will not miss the bacon.

I purposefully avoided using the heavy cream that you’ll find in most chowder recipes. Heavy cream has a tendency to dull flavors and also makes me feel weighed down. Instead, I blended a bit of butter into the soup (one of my favorite soup tricks) and stirred in some crème fraîche or sour cream at the end. These dairy ingredients offer some creaminess, of course, plus some tanginess that you won’t get from plain cream.

You can easily make this soup dairy free or vegan, if desired. You’ll love the end results either way!

Sheet pan chicken fajitas are the most perfect weeknight meal. 

sheet pan chicken fajitas

Everything on one pan, perfectly charred and flavorful and shoved in warm tortillas with lots of lime! And cheese! And GUAC!

If this isn’t the definition of my ideal meal I don’t know what is.

sheet pan chicken fajitas on tortillas with sour cream

We loooove fajitas in this house. They are a great meal to prep ahead of time (I often marinate both the meat and peppers a day or so ahead!), easy to throw together and usually provide us with a good amount of leftovers. We’re obsessed!

And that’s just the “regular” old fajitas – these sheet pan ones are even simpler!

sliced peppers and onions

As we enter the season of squash, where basically everything I want to eat tastes like a mixture of pumpkin and brown butter and sage, it’s so nice to occasionally have a dinner that doesn’t have those flavors. During this season I always find that having tacos or some sort of pasta tastes incredible, but the other things I’m making are so buttery and spiced. 

This totally makes up for that!

fajita marinade

Now, I do have a nacho sheet pan chicken – which is incredible. I use peppers in that too, and you can shred it and put it in tortillas, or just eat it as is.

However, I decided to share these fajitas with you too because so many of you want to make my shrimp version with chicken

pouring fajita marinade on peppers and onions

Yes… 

This is basically the chicken version of my lime sheet pan shrimp fajitas that we all flip over. Lime loaded, if you will. A favorite weeknight meal. One that truly everybody loves.

sheet pan chicken fajitas with cilantro

To make them come together in the best way possible, I cook the peppers and onions first, allowing them to get super caramely and roasty. Then, I push them to the side and add the chicken pieces. And we roast it all together so it’s done to perfection. 

This method is IDEAL for sheet pan meals. I’ve always struggled with them because items on the sheet pan rarely require the same cook time. 

This solves that!

My (and Eddie’s!) favorite fajita toppings? A simple sprinkle of fresh cilantro and crumbled cotija cheese. Cotija is just the best – it’s probably one of my favorite cheeses of all time. It adds SO much to a dish. 

Most of the time, I’ll add a few avocado slices or guacamole too. Eddie isn’t it to it, but the kids adore guac, so we almost always have it on hand.

My quick guacamole recipe here is one I throw together constantly. Bare bones, but tastes incredible. Skip the fancy add-ins for this guac and throw it on top of your fajitas.

Finally, a drizzle of sour cream or even mayo for that creamy favorite. A big spritz of lime.

Lots of chip.

And a margarita please!

Finally! I’ve figured out how to make the perfect homemade mojito. Mojitos are bubbly rum cocktails that taste minty-fresh, citrusy and a little sweet. Club soda stretches out the flavors to create an afternoon-worthy sipper. Mojitos are ultra refreshing on warm days, and I feel like I’m on vacation every time I get my hands on one.

Mojitos originated in Cuba and I hope to taste a real one someday. We enjoyed Cuban-style mojitos in Miami over a long Valentine’s weekend earlier this year. Mojitos happen to be the only cocktail my husband will drink (he’s usually more of a beer and wine guy). I studied the bartenders’ methods while we were there so I could learn how to make them at home.

At Old’s Havana, they lined up highball glasses all the way down the bar, added a generous spoonful of sugar to each, followed by several sprigs of fresh mint (or yerba buena, as they call it). They mixed the mojitos in the glasses by the order, garnishing them with real sugar cane. I swizzled my drink and swayed to the beat of lively Latin string music playing just a few feet away. I honestly don’t know if it was an authentic or manufactured Miami experience, but it was magical nonetheless.

mojito ingredients

Outside of Miami, great mojitos can be hard to come by. Many bars don’t keep fresh mint on hand so they’ll turn down the request, and my own homemade attempts over the years have been lackluster. Now that I’ve studied and practiced my mojito technique, I’m excited to share my mojito recipe with you today!

Turns out, you just need five basic ingredients (mint, lime, sugar, rum and club soda) and a few simple tips to make the best mojito you’ve ever had. You won’t even need a shaker or simple syrup for this classic mojito recipe. Cheers to a long weekend!

What’s limoncello?

Limoncello is an Italian lemon liqueur that tastes like biting into an actual lemon! It’s the second most popular liqueur in Italy after Campari. You can get it everywhere in Italy, and it’s customary to drink a shot after a big Italian meal. Limoncello has become very popular in the US, so you should be able to find it easily at your local liquor store.

In all honesty, limoncello is so strong straight up that I usually pass it up. But mixed into this lemoncello cocktail, it’s absolutely brilliant!

Cocktail skill: how to muddle mint!

The main skill you need to know to make this limoncello cocktail is how to muddle. What’s muddling? Muddling is gently mashing herbs or fruits to release their juices. This helps the flavors incorporate better than if you just threw a mint sprig right into the drink. Here are a few things to note when you muddle mint:

  • Do it right in the cocktail shaker. Place the mint leaves in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. If you don’t have one, you can use a large metal cup or bowl.
  • Gently mash the mint! Using a wooden cocktail muddler or unfinished wooden spoon, gently mash the mint a few times to release the juices. Do not mash the mint with a lot of force! The key is using a light touch.

A few more tips for a Mojito

Here are a few last tips on how to make a killer limoncello mojito!

  • Use a hurricane glass if you have one: it’s the classic type of glass for a Mojito. But a highball glass works too!
  • Add a mint sprig. It’s just more fun to drink with a big sprig of mint!
  • Serve with clear ice for a stunning drink. Clear ice is crystal clear artisan ice that you can make in your home freezer. It makes drinks look like professional cocktails you’ll get at a fancy bar. Go to How to Make Clear Ice.

The star: 5-minute easy black beans!

The best part of this rice bowl, similar to a burrito bowl, is the easy black beans! This is the way to bring big flavor with only a few minutes of cooking. Once you’ve got your rice started, whip up those black beans. Here’s what you need to infuse huge flavor into these beans in no time:

  • Canned black beans: You don’t even have to rinse them! The residual can liquid makes a creamy sauce.
  • Fresh garlic: Minced fresh garlic brings big savory flavor.
  • Cumin: A hint of cumin adds the final flavoring.

Pop them in a pan for just 3 minutes, and you’ll be surprised at the amount of flavor you’ll get. You can use these beans as a component in lots of different meals outside of this rice bowl.

How to make a rice bowl

Once you’ve got your rice and your beans: it’s time to make a rice bowl! The vegetable and sauce ideas we’ve provided here are just ideas. This is a free-form concept so anything goes! Here are a few ideas for vegetables and components you can swap to make a rice bowl. This one is like to a burrito bowl, but you can use different flavors and sauces for a different vibe. The main guiding principle: maximize contrasts in color, flavor and texture!

  • Make the rice. See above.
  • Make the protein. You can of course use any type of protein you like: beans, tofu, tempeh, chicken, shrimp: you name it! This bowl would be great with Cilantro Lime Shrimp too.
  • Prepare the veggies. Use lots of colorful raw veggies. Some favorites are avocado and cherry tomatoes. We like to add corn for sweetness and red onion for a savory crunch. Other ideas: bell peppers, leafy greens like spinach or mixed greens, or roasted sweet potatoes,
  • Add the sauce. Top it all off with a healthy sauce to bring it together: ideas below!

5 different sauce variations (with vegan options!)

What makes a rice bowl? The sauce. This rice bowl is covered in a creamy, zingy cilantro lime ranch that takes it over the top! You’ll love this tasty sauce: but we’ve got lots of other options too. If you’re looking for a vegan variation, review the list below:

Cilantro lime sauce

White rice vs. brown rice

Which type of rice is best for a rice bowl? Is it better to eat brown rice? Here’s a little breakdown of the benefits of making either variety for this rice bowl:

  • White rice is quick to cook and takes about 20 minutes total. It’s great when you’re in a time crunch!
  • Brown rice has more vitamins, minerals, and fiber than white rice. 1 cup cooked white rice has 0.6 grams fiber, but 1 cup cooked brown rice has 3.2 grams of fiber, 13% of your daily need. (Source) It’s also less processed so has more nutrients. It does take longer to cook, but use our quick method above to cook it in 35 minutes.

Shortcut: make the rice in advance and reheat it!

Make this rice bowl even quicker by making the rice in advance. Refrigerate it until you’re ready to serve. You may have noticed that when you refrigerate rice, it gets very dry. Here’s a trick for how to reheat rice so that it’s perfectly moist:

  • Place the cold rice in a saucepan on the stovetop.
  • Add a small splash of water.
  • Heat the rice until it’s warmed through: the water will steam and absorb into the rice.

Components in a rice bowl: rice, protein, veggies and sauce

Black beans nutrition

You can make this rice bowl with a variety of different protein options. But here’s a plug for using black beans! Here’s why black beans are such a plant-based powerhouse (source):

  • Excellent source of protein. 1 cup has 15 grams of protein, about 30% of your daily protein needs.
  • Excellent source of fiber. 1 cup also has 15 grams of fiber, about 50% of your daily intake.
  • Black beans have a lower glycemic index compared to many other high-carbohydrate foods, meaning they cause a smaller rise in blood sugar after a meal. In fact, some studies have even shown beans eaten with rice can reduce a rise in blood sugar vs when people eat rice alone.

This rice bowl recipe is…

I don’t know what the weather is like in your area, but here in Ohio, we’re in that odd phase of the year where one day it’s 90 and the next it’s 65.

While I am a true fall lover at heart, we’re still trying to hold onto the last couple of weeks of summer.

Which basically means I’m still whipping up key lime and fresh berry desserts all while craving pumpkin roll and a big slice of pumpkin crunch cake.
