The Originators of Quick & Easy Cooking!


06.28.16: Celebrating Our Military

Updated May 17, 2017

On today's show we're saluting the United States Navy on board the USS Bataan. We're learning all about life in the Navy, including how the US Navy feeds thousands of sailors every single day and what day-to-day life is like. Best of all, you'll get to hear about it from the sailors and the Captain! We're also asking about their favorite food on board and from their travels around the world. You'll be surprised to learn that Navy Bean Soup isn't really popular anymore, but "Hamburger Wednesdays" are! We hope you'll listen, laugh, and learn with us as we salute the men and women who fight for our country. Together, we'll all be saying "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!®"

Grande Chicken Fajitas

These Grande Chicken Fajitas are a Southwest-favorite! The key to making these really flavorful is to start off with well-seasoned chicken, which is why we coat ours with lots of spices. Add in plenty of tender-cooked peppers and onions and you've got yourself the bare bones of a Tex-Mex restaurant classic. Now, go on and dig in!
