...a partnership Addy Daddy Seasonings and Sauces
If you’ve been around here for a minute, you know that I believe in eating healthy food that still tastes good. Y’all also know that I focus on adding flavor to your food without having a ton of extra salt. So I have some exciting news to share that combines those both!
I’ve decided to partner with Addy Daddy Seasonings and Sauces which is a black owned business based out of Texas that focuses on the things you and I love good tasting food that you feel good about. Their seasonings are healthier than Lawry’s or Sazon because they use sea salt or Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. They’re also delicious because they include seasonings I already use and recommend to y’all like Cumin, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, and of course Smoked Paprika. (Y’all know how much I love Smoked Paprika.) I use them in our house when I want to get dinner done quicker or to add some variety to dishes we have often like salmon.
To learn more about this awesome company, catch me on Saturday June 20th @ 6 pm where I’ll be cooking live with Mr. Addy Daddy himself, Adeola where we’ll be making Shrimp Tacos with a Chipotle Cream Sauce over on my Instagram. If you’d like to check out the seasonings before then, visit their site to learn more and you’ll get 15% off your first order with code CHEFASHLEYSHEP at checkout. My favorites are the “Everything” and the S.B.F. (I use that on everything).
So if you’re looking for another recipe idea then tune in this Saturday, June 20th @ 6 pm EDT over on Instagram. Click my face at the top when it says live. Or if you are a Facebook fan, I’ll be broadcasting from there too, but honestly the angles will be much better on Insta.
If you want to cook along with us or make it afterwards, here’s the recipe:
See you Saturday!
*I don’t endorse or partner with any company, unless I absolutely love their product. Integrity is way more important to me than any affiliate commission ever earned, and most times I get coins or nothing back at all by recommending things. Also, I’m the type of person that reads all the bad reviews on Amazon before buying something, so I got you covered. Now what they do after I’ve recommended them is another story (in light of companies taking different sides on issues such as Black Lives Matter), but any time before that you’re good to go. If you purchase from links I provide, I may receive a small amount back at no extra cost to you.

Facebook Live featuring Nonnahs Driskell of Get Organized Already
Black Friday is almost here and you know what that means: getting lots of great deals on things you need and some things you want.
I love Black Friday, because it gives me a chance to get those things that have been sitting in my Amazon shopping cart for a while.
If you're anything like me though, you probably didn't already check and go through what you had before you bought that new thing.
Now we all know when there's a sale that sometimes we get a little click happy and end up buying stuff we may or may not need.
“But it's on sale!”
is often used to justify some purchases for sure. But before you spend another dime or add something else to that Amazon shopping cart, I want to invite you to join me on Tuesday the help you get organized already!
(This training is for me too ? cuz sometimes, life is a mess.)
On Tuesday, I'll be speaking Nonnahs Driskell, the founding organizer of Get Organized Already (Southern California). They are a team of professional organizers who help people like you (and me) declutter and organize their stuff every day.
She has organized about 251 kitchens. She’s been featured on Hoarders, The OWN Network ?, Good Housekeeping, and many more!
Y'all, she's seen it all and knows what’s in your kitchen.
"What's that smell?"
That’s often a phrase that I hear at work.
Now when you’re around kids all day and you hear it, that could often mean one of two things...
But in this case we were in the teacher’s lounge, so usually the smells are safe. 🤣
In this case the person was talking about my Roasted Salsa Verde Soup that I was eating for lunch (pictured above. Since it's one of my favorites, I made it for my photo shoot back in the summer).
In this case the person was talking about my Roasted Salsa Verde Soup that I was eating for lunch.
Then my coworker followed up with a
“OMG, that smells SO good!”
So I decided to bring her some for lunch the next day. Then she proceeded to tell me how good it was. Words she used were fresh and filling.
My coworkers make the perfect taste testers!
Anyway, I realized that I should probably not be stingy and share with everybody, so here’s a link to a video I did making the soup along with the recipe, so you can eat good too.
And no it's not a bunch of steps.
And yes you can make it into a freezer meal. (I show you how in the video.)
And yes, healthy and tasty at the same time (so you can save those calories for sweet potato pie instead).
If that's not enough of a reason to check it out, here's a few more.

🥘Salsa Verde Soup Recipe
1. (Optional) Using a gas stove, place the Poblano pepper on top of the aisle on LOW heat. Watch it closely, and turn as necessary. The skin will blacken. Rotate until all sides are a little charred . Let cool. OR Spread oil on skin of peppers and in oven on 425 degrees for 30-45 mintues. Add to a ziplock bag for 5 minutes and peel.
2. Combine chicken, broth, beans, seasonings, salsa, bell peppers, onions, and garlic in slow cooker. Gently peel the charred skin off the poblano pepper, chop, and add to pot. Leave the seeds in for an extra kick.
3. Use a crockpot or instant pot to slow cook on LOW for 3.5- 4 hours (depending upon your appliance.)
4. Add cilantro and shred the chicken during the last 30 minutes.
5. Enjoy with avocado, more cilantro, tortilla chips.
Like crunchy bell peppers and onions?
Add them in the last 30 minutes instead of the beginning.
As a self taught culinary creator, Chef Ashley decided to take her love of food to the masses by launching her brand that focuses on ways to be "healthyish", simplifying meal time, and dispelling the rumor that delicious food has to have tons of salt and fat. She believes that meal prep isn't just for the super health conscious and that it can help us all to take back the hours stolen by our kitchens. She began her meal prep journey as a way to save time and energy, but ended up finding a calling.
