Flavorful Meals

Seasonings add big flavor to favorite dishes.


| March 26, 2012


The weeknight rotation of go-to family favorites just got better – and better for you. The flavor experts in the McCormick Kitchens took up the challenge to find easy ways to add more flavor, and antioxidants, to the top internet-searched family dinner recipes with staple ingredients like spices, herbs, vegetables and fruits.

At the time of the search, these were the top 10 most-searched recipes.

1. Spaghetti
2. Tacos
3. Pork Chops
4. Pizza
5. Chicken Soup
6. Enchiladas
7. Meatloaf
8. Lasagna
9. Chili
10. Beef Stew

“This list of top recipes reveals that busy cooks are searching for new ideas to add some flavorful twists to the same weeknight standbys,” says Mary Beth Harrington of the McCormick Kitchens. “We wanted to create deliciously simple variations that can inspire healthy choices every night of the week.”



Making healthier dinners is easier than you think. Wendy Bazilian, DrPH, MA, RD, author of The SuperFoodsRx Diet, believes that the best place to start is with what the family already loves – and then boost the excitement, flavor and nutrition of dinnertime with healthy ingredients. 

“Using ‘Super Spices’ like red pepper, oregano, ginger and garlic provides an added bonus because they are a delicious source of natural antioxidants, which play an important role in keeping the body in good health,” says Dr. Bazilian.
