Fall Meals with Chef Jamie Gwen

As we get deeper into Fall and approach the winter months, it’s easy to fall into a food rut – same meals, same snacks. It may seem like schedules have gotten tighter, no one has time to eat. Joining us is Chef Jamie as she unlocks a few flavor suggestions that will make sure everyone wants to come together at mealtime.

How can we take our dinners beyond the ordinary?

Busy weeknights are officially back! But I have some easy ways to zhuzh up any weeknight meal. I like Bush’s Sidekicks. They come in four flavorful varieties – Southwest Zest pinto beans, Rustic Tuscany chickpeas, Taco Fiesta black beans and Simmerin’ Caribbean Black Beans. They can add a burst of flavor to your meal, whether as a a go-to side or a simple mix-in to your favorite salad. Shown here is the Simmerin’ Caribbean variety, which is slow-simmered in a sweet and savory sauce with colorful peppers and Jamaican jerk-style spices. Works great alongside rice and a grilled chicken breast for an easy way to get new, exciting flavors to add to your favorite meals. Click here to learn more.

How can we save time in the kitchen?

A great way to save time in the kitchen is making the most of your pantry staples. One way to add a pop of flavor is with a great sauce. Lee Kum Kee, a leading maker of authentic Asian sauces and condiments for over a century, makes it easy to upgrade your meals by offering an unexpected twist and bold flavor. The Lee Kum Kee Sriracha Mayo, with a brand new look, is a delicious combination of your favorite condiments. It’s creamy with a hint of spiciness, gluten free, and now made using cage free eggs! This is a great sauce to elevate your favorite sandwich, marinade, wraps, and even dips. Click here to learn more.

And I like to make the most of seasonal ingredients like apples. Check out these apple pie taquitos. Super yummy and easy to make this simple tortilla dessert recipe. I like to use CHI-CHI’S brand tortillas as the base. They offer tasty tortillas in several varieties, including Fajita Style and Burrito Style. Low in fat and baked to perfection, you can make mealtime, snack time, or downtime more flavorful and festive. Enjoy them as burritos, tacos, wraps and more for dinner. Then use the rest to make this simple dessert. Simmer the apples, cinnamon, and sugar for 10 minutes. Then roll in a tortilla, brush with butter and bake for 15 minutes for delicious hand-held perfection. Click here to learn more.
