Week 3 Superhero Challenge

Week 3 Superhero Challenge

Last week was the final week of my 2nd superhero challenge. While none of Emily’s meals looked very good, I did try one.

Jalapeño popper chicken chili


Overall –

I was super excited about this chili because it’s from one of my favorite paleo recipe websites! Let’s just say, eh. I wasn’t thrilled with this recipe. The ground chicken texture leaves much to be desired. I can barely choke it down…. but it was also so expensive to make. The only ground chicken I was able to find was $7/lb! Holy crap! Add on top of that a pound of ground beef, and it makes for a rather expensive chili that I won’t be making again.

Prep –

Super easy. Chop everything up and thrown it all in the crockpot and mix. Cook on low for 8+hours. Easy peasy.

Cost –

Expensive in my opinion. $7/lb for ground turkey, $5/lb for ground beef. Yikes! That’s a lot for only 6 servings.

Chicken Carbonara Casserole

Spinach and Artichoke Chicken Carbonara Pasta

Overall –

Yum. I’ve made this recipe before and it’s good. Even my boyfriend thought it was good despite the fact that it was “too healthy”. I’ve made myself a note to cut the amount of nutmeg. I don’t know like it…I don’t know why I always use it when the recipe calls for it…

Prep –

A little more complicated as there are lots of small steps. Cook the bacon, cook the spaghetti squash, cook the chicken, dice up all the veggies. Then mix them all together and bake for an hour. Luckily that baking hour gives you tons of time to clean all the dishes you just dirtied making it…

Cost –

Expensive if you use the Pederson’s sugar free bacon and good quality chicken. It would be much cheaper if you weren’t worried about the sugar free bacon or quality chicken.
