What I Bookmarked This Week

Recipes and posts from other blogs that I thought looked especially delicious and that I thought you would like, too:

Beef & Chorizo Chili Cheese Tacos with Chipotle Mayo (Climbing Grier Mountain)
Oh my goodness, these take tacos to the next level. Officially craving!

Chicken Fajitas (Simply Recipes)
I used this recipe for the chicken fajitas for my brother-in-law’s birthday meal, and they were FANTASTIC! The flavor was phenomenal and everyone loved them.

Layered Buffalo Chicken Dip (How Sweet It Is)
I am admittedly not a big fan of buffalo chicken stuff, but I am dying over this dip. I want to dig in with a big bowl of tortilla chips!

Three of my favorite dessert components! These look AMAZING!

Stuffed Cheesy Bread (Girl Versus Dough)
Cheesy bread will always and forever be my weakness. I would eat this all by myself.
