Cold-snap? Never fear, the Made in Oklahoma Coalition is here with some one-pot wonders ideal for warming the family from the inside-out.
Taco soup couldn’t be simpler to make. It’s the kind of recipe even picky eaters will like. Put a couple of jars of Ace in the Bowl salsa on your grocery list.

These dishes will keep the kitchen mess to a minimum and act as warm-up to all the culinary opportunities knocking in February, including Valentine’s Day and the Lunar New Year.
