  1. Thanks for the compendium of recipes. I just made the Southwestern Crock-pot roast today, and it is delicious. The chicken chile mock enchilada casserole is always a big hit here. I have added the chile relleno casserole and the sour cream chicken enchilada casserole to upcoming meal plans. Thanks for all you do, Kalyn. Your recipes always work. Alice

  2. Tammi, my pleasure. Glad you like the ideas.

  3. Looking yummo! Thanks a bunch.

  4. Thanks Jean! It's been a fun and eventful nine years for sure.

  5. Kalyn, NINE years! Wow! I don't think I even knew about blogs back then. This is a tempting bunch of dishes!

  6. Thanks Amy, so glad there are recipes that will work for you.

  7. Happy Anniversary!

    Thanks for posting such a wide variety of Cinco de Mayo. I have been following a gluten free, dairy free, corn free, egg free recently and appreciate that you have recipes that meet these restrictions. (Of course the other recipes are very tempting! 🙂 ) Can't wait to try a few!

  8. Karen, that's a good one; too bad all my typos are not that amusing! Thanks for telling me so I could fix it.

  9. I know it's a typo and should be Chili, but got quite a good chuckle out of the name of #6, "Spicy Green Child Mexican Casserole …"

  10. Lambie, hope you enjoy!

    Thanks Barb. Glad you like it!

  11. Happy Anniversary…………..hard to believe it's been that many years Kalyn. Living in Arizona it is almost a sin if one does not celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Next to Christmas it is my favorite holiday.
    I must pin this post for my friends over on Pinterest. Some of these are already in my file!!

  12. Everything looks so good! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I want to try the low-carb one first 😉
