My Review of Blount Bowls
The folks from Blount Organic sent me some of their Blount Bowls to try! The Blount Family has been in the food business since 1880. Their products include refrigerated and frozen gourmet soups, sauces, side dishes and entrées! Blount's gourmet soups and specialty foods are made with the finest and freshest ingredients,
I was really excited to try their Asian Inspired bowls. Just 3 minutes in the microwave and you have a delicious hot meal. Their bowl flavors include Vegetable & Rice, Hibachi Chicken & Rice, Coconut Chicken & noodle and Chicken & Ramen. I decided to try the Hibachi Chicken & Rice Bowl.
It is gluten free and the chicken is raised without antibiotics. It contains sweet and roasted flavors of garlic, red peppers, red onion and tomatoes. It had a hint of sweetness and was very satisfying and FRESH! It really only took 3 minutes in the microwave. This is a great quick meal and is perfect for a cold winter day.
In honor of January being National Soup Month, Blount Organic is doing a Giveaway!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Chili
Brrr it is cold outside. This simple Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Chili is the perfect meal for a frigid winter day.
1 diced onion
1 8 oz can of kidney beans
1 8 oz can of pinto beans
1 8 oz can of black beans
1 8 oz can of tomato sauce
1 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes with chilies

In your slow cooker combine the beans, onion, tomato sauce, tomatoes, garlic, cumin and taco seasoning. Mix well and then lay the chicken on top.

French Onion Soup
French Onion Soup is my favorite soup to enjoy on a cold winter day. I often always order it anytime I visit a diner.It is also quite simple to make.
1 tbs of olive oil
2 tbs of butter
6 medium onions sliced
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp of fresh thyme
6 cups of beef stock
4 thick slices of french bread toasted
Gruyere Cheese (I used mozzarella)
Heat a deep pot over medium high heat. Add the butter and oil into the pot. Then add the sliced onions and season with salt & pepper and thyme.Cook for 15 minutes until tender and caramel in color. Next add the 6 cups of beef stock and bring to a boil.
Preheat the boiler. On a cookie sheet arrange 4 small soup bowls. Pour onion soup into boils and then place a toasted french bread slice in each. Place cheese on top and put in oven until cheese melts.
