This Week’s Dinner

Week 4: Sweet Chili Chicken Enchiladas, Ground Beef Gyros, Creamy Tortellini Soup, Chicken Shawarma, and Honey Salmon

Welcome back to another edition of This Week’s Dinner!

My promises:
- I only post recipes I have made in my home kitchen for my family = tested
- I never post things that I wouldn’t make again = approved. As in… they are good. Gone are the days of lurking leftovers no one wants to eat. Goodbye, Pinterest fails.

You can view the specific serving details in each recipe.

These Sweet Chili Chicken Enchiladas are really wonderful! Carlsbad Cravings is one of my favorite food blogs out there because the food is always flavorful. These enchiladas are no exception. They are healthy, easy to make, and a twist on the regular old enchilada with their unique Asian flavor profile. Not too spicy — not too sweet, these are a definitely make again meal.

Ground Beef Gyros are super budget friendly. Whenever ground beef is on sale, I like to pick it up. But the usual burger or meatball recipe can get a little stale. These gyros are a great way to mix it up. You can also make this recipe with ground turkey and it is just as delicious. It’s fresh, simple, homemade and diet friendly.


Creamy Tortellini Soup (picture via Gimme Some Oven)

Ohhhh this Creamy Tortellini Soup is a new family favorite! I have already made twice per request and decided to double the recipe the last time so we could have some reserves. It goes fast! It tastes a lot like the Olive Garden Chicken and Gnocchi soup but it is a heck of a lot easier to make! it is a one pot meal and a soup that is filling enough to be a perfect main course.

It’s the new sensation and, once you try this recipe, you will know why. Shawarma is delicious! This recipe makes it easy. Make the gyros and shawarma in the same week and use pitas, cucumbers, feta, tomatoes, and make a big batch of Greek white sauce to use in both recipes. Both recipes are totally customizable so you can fill them with your favorites and skip the ingredients you don’t (I’m looking at you, olives).


Honey Salmon in Foil (picture via Damn Delicious)

Honey Salmon in foil is a great no mess dinner. It couldn’t be any easier and you probably have most of the ingredients on hand already. This tastes like a dish you would order out at a restaurant. You can serve this with any vegetable — bonus points for seasonal. I happened to have some extra potatoes on hand which I cut up and cooked in a pan with some salt, pepper, and oregano but feel free to get creative!
