winter comfort food: a publix gift card giveaway

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post on behalf of my ambassadorship with the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon. I was provided a Publix gift card for personal use, as well as one to use for the purposes of a giveaway. All opinions are my own.

This onslaught of colder weather changes the game in our kitchen a little bit. My winter tastes tend to run towards stews, soups, casseroles and one-pot crockpot type dishes: hearty, comforting meals that stick to the ribs and keep the chill away. I love to make loaded baked potato soups, chicken and dumplings, and pretty much anything that involves mashed potatoes, but those can be heavy and not necessarily full of veggies or other nutritious ingredients.

There are a few recipes in my wheelhouse that are lighter, healthier and perfect for the cold winter’s nights. I always try to stock the base ingredients for those meals when I do my weekly shopping at Publix, and that way, everything is in the pantry, ready to go.

But our favorite easy winter meal is a Crockpot Santa Fe Chicken from It’s simple to make, full of flavor and heats up great as leftovers.

I can toss the ingredients in the crockpot in the morning (We cut down on the diced tomatoes and add in about 1/2 – 3/4 cup of tomato sauce to thicken the consistency. We also swap in some minced garlic for cilantro, but that’s the beauty of this recipe – it’s so easy to mix it up!)

and by dinnertime, we have a delicious and healthy meal ready to go.

This is an incredibly versatile dish, which can be served alone as a soup or stew, over rice, as a filling for tacos or a topping for nachos or even salad.

And now for the fun part! We are giving away one $25 gift card to Publix, so that you can make your own favorite meal! All you have to do is enter via the Rafflecopter module below and leave a comment, sharing your favorite winter dish!

    Oh my gosh! So I grew up in Florida with a Publix a mile and a half from my house. I kid you not one of the things I missed the most and North Carolina is Publix!

    Luckily for me, Publix recently opened their first store and the area!

    LOVE recipes that can just be thrown in one dish and left alone to cook. Did you have to take stirring breaks or no?

    My favorite winter comfort food is chicken pot pie. I love making it all from scratch – crust too! I also make filling and then making homemade biscuits to put on top.

  14. I really need to use my crockpot more. I actually just used it today to make beef stew. I had NO idea you could buy liners for it so you don’t have to be scrubbing for hours lol This recipe looks delicious!
