Hello friends! It has been awhile since I've posted, and I've missed you! How was your memorial day? Ours was memorable, and sad, as PH's father passed away that weekend due to complications from Alzheimers.
He was a wonderful kind man, and he lived a wonderful, kind life. He is missed here, but we're glad to no longer watch him deteriorate. Alzheimers is one painful disease for everyone involved.
Thankfully, we got to be there to say good-bye. Families are a blessing, and eternal families are the greatest blessing! It is what brings us peace and comfort!
Since coming home we have been moving forward, as that is what life does. Friday rolled around and Fridays are my day off. I get to spend the day with my daughter, and the two of us got A LOT accomplished this last Friday, including making this tasty Green Chili Burros Salad for dinner!
I don't know why I was suddenly in the mood for green chili burros for dinner on Friday, but I was. Green Chili Burros in and of themselves are an easy dinner option. Growing up my mom would often make them for Sunday dinner. She could throw the meat in the crock pot before church, and when we came home three hours later the house smelled amazing. Maybe I wanted that comforting smell in our home. Maybe I just wanted that delicious food in my belly.
Either way, I decided that was going to be dinner. However, just the night before PH told me that he had made a decision to stop with the sugar and carbs in his life. I want to fully support him in this endeavor, so a knew an actual green chili burro was out of the question.
I feel like the great thing about meals like Green Chili Burros is that you can make it a salad so easily! So that is what I did!
Now caveat, this isn't exactly my mom's green chili burros recipe. By the time she had responded to me with what she does to make it it was too late, my green chili burro meat was in the crockpot. I have to say though, upon eating my green chili burros salad, I feel like I hit the mark.
It was delicious, and a lot healthier without tortillas or sour cream! So if you're looking for an easy, tasty salad for dinner look no further! This Green Chili Burros Salad is for you!
