If you’ll pardon another little recipe roundup today… Just because sometimes these random national days inspire me to think back on some of my faves! January 20 is National Cheese Lover’s Day, and I really couldn’t let such a momentous occasion pass by unremarked.

How do I love cheese? Let me count the ways, with:

Five Cheesy Recipes for National Cheese Lover’s Day

cheese topped pasta in skillet

Let’s start with one of our favorites around here: Easy Cheesy Beautiful Pasta Skillet takes just 30 minutes to cook up, yet packs all of the taste of lasagna into an easy weeknight meal. Kids love it! Use farfalle (bowtie noodles) to make it pretty. 🙂

serving skillet enchiladas

Speaking of skillets, let’s put our cast iron skillet to good use now: Deconstructed Vegetarian Enchiladas Skillet is so much easier than rolling up traditional enchiladas — and naturally gluten free, if you use GF corn tortillas. Mix it up on your next Meatless Monday or Taco Tuesday with this cheesy delicious favorite.

naan pizza with sausage and peppers on top

Can any cheesy recipe roundup be complete without pizza? Take yours a different direction next time: Sausage, Peppers, & Onions (plus artichoke!) Naan Pizza punches up a classic flavor combo by pizza-fying it. All of that pairs beautifully with a chewy flatbread crust + smooth mozzarella.

jalapeno popper chicken chili topped with bacon bits

Let’s put our electric pressure cooker to work now, shall we? Instant Pot Jalapeño Popper Chicken Chili combines everything you love about jalapeño poppers with the hearty goodness of white chicken chili. (No Instant Pot? Use the alternative slow cooker directions in the post.) Filled with creamy, tangy, cream cheese, this filling chicken chili is extra delicious topped with cheddar.

Last, but most definitely not least: Vegetarian Elote Tortilla Casserole packs in plenty of elote style corn, spinach, black beans, and salsa verde — plus, of course, 2 cups of deliciously melty cheese!

Hope that one of these cheesy choices pleases. Let me know if you try one of them on National Cheese Lover’s Day, or any day.
