Bring some heat in the kitchen and forget about the temps outside with these easy dinners. MORE+ LESS-

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to say goodbye to winter weather. If you’re lucky enough to live in a snow-free climate, I’m majorly jealous (and I might consider a move to your zip code). For those of you still living in a winter wonderland, I wonder if you’ll second me when I say it’s not so wonderful anymore. 

This season’s been especially tough in Minnesota, where the Pillsbury editors’ team is headquartered. During the month of December, we bundled up through 13 days of subzero temps. One day in early January, the high was -14 degrees. (I wish I were joking.) 

So it’s safe to say, we’ve been staying inside a lot, looking for ways to warm up. That means blankets, tea, a hot toddy or two and some spicy food. Here are three recipes that’ll warm up your plate, whether you’re suffering through frigid temps or not. 


Slow Cooker Mexican Pork Tacos

Run, don’t walk, and make these one-pot-easy Slow Cooker Mexican Pork Tacos stat. Nothing says warm-up-your-belly like a combo of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning, Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce and Grands! Flaky Layers Original Biscuits. Anything slow-cooked is a cure for winter blues, and this melt-in-your-mouth, tangy shredded pork is spot-on.


Mexican Bubble Pizza

This Mexican Bubble Pizza is a Pillsbury fan favorite, and it’s easy to see why. It’s done in only four steps and packs a punch with salsa and Old El Paso Taco Seasoning.


Easy Mexican Pizza

This Easy Mexican Pizza is a perfect weeknight dinner recipe. It’s ready in less time than it would take to order a delivery pizza!
