There is so much excitement when fall comes around: changing colors of the trees, apple picking, carving pumpkins, and cooler temperatures! Living in the south, you miss so much of the traditional fall activities that we had so much of up north. That doesn’t mean we can’t feel it here, it is just different. Our mornings have slowly gotten cooler and the evenings have a bit of a breeze to them. I will take what I can get! Now is often the time that we start to crave warm, comforting meals.
Today I wanted to share 5 Fall Dinner Ideas to inspire your next trip to the grocery store!
Sweet Potato Black Bean Enchiladas: These enchiladas by Minimalist Baker are pretty tasty! They are wonderfully spicy and perfect to warm you up on a crisp evening. They are also vegetarian and dairy free!
Thai Curry Butternut Squash Soup: I crave soup once the weather cools down. This butternut squash soup by The Defined Dish is on my list to make soon. I love that it has a thai twist to it and I swear anything Alex shares is amazing!
One Pan Autumn Chicken Dinner: I love sheet pan dinners. Anything that only utilizes one pan and cooks everything all at the same time is a winner for me! This recipe by Cooking Classy looks amazing and I love the addition of the apples to the sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts.
Shredded Chicken Tortilla Soup: This soup by Amy Green is often on rotation in our household. What I love about this soup is that it is delicious plain, but when you add hot sauce and avocado, or your favorite toppings, the flavor gets even better! I have been making this soup for years and it never disappoints. It is also delicious as a vegetarian soup by swapping the chicken for black beans and using vegetable broth! This is a great recipe for all you slow cooker fans.
Roasted Autumn Vegetables: There are some evenings when I all I want are some vegetables. No Crumbs Left shares an easy way to prepare your favorite Autumn vegetables!
