    Next time add some veggies like corn, carrots, peas, cauliflower, broccoli...whatever you got. It gets even better (and healthier) than just adding the cheese.

    Toss in a little butter, some onions, maybe a bit more chicken bouillon and a touch of thyme & some cumin...now it's almost the best soup you have ever had.

    Beets on the side sounds excellent, BTW.

    I call it "Ramen noodle surprise". Years ago, I had a friend that was having a favorite soup pot-luck party at his house. Some brought chili, veggie soup, he made French Onion with cheese toast. I brought a big mess of cheesy ramen noodle surprise.

    At the end of the night, I was the only person with an empty pot. Everybody wanted my recipe. The critical spice is the cumen. Not too much, just enough to accentuate the chicken/cheese flavor.

    Sorry I just saw this, usually I’ll smoke a pork butt for about 16 hours and shred it and then broil it to get the crispy little bits for Carnitas.
    But the family wanted tacos and they were in a big a hurry so I diced up some pork butt into little pieces and threw it in a cast iron skillet with olive oil and added salt pepper chili powder cumin and diced onions and put a cover on it and cooked it till it was tender then pull the cover off and turned up the temperature and got some crispy bits. It actually turned out really good now it’s my new fast way of making Carnitas.

    Spaghetti last night. Threw some pepperoni in the sauce with extra pepper and garlic. Man it was good. Hand split and stacked nearly a half cord after dinner to work off some of the carbs.

    Tuesday was philly wraps with leftover ribeye. I add cream cheese for extra richness.

    The local market does up these thick cut, marinated, bacon wrapped pork chops. $3 for a two pack. Possibly the best chops I’ve ever eaten. With a side of steamed spinach.
