With the New Year almost here, we are sharing the 25 Most Popular Recipes of 2020. This has been a year of A LOT of new recipes, a lot of cooking, so much baking, and plenty of cocktail mixing…more than ever before! Below are the top 25 most popular recipes. Can you guess the most popular HBH recipe of the year?

Healthier Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini Vegetable Soup | halfbakedharvest.com

Happy Monday! And it is a happy Monday because it’s a long holiday week with New Year’s Eve on Thursday, followed of course, by New Year’s Day! I said this yesterday, but don’t you guys love this time between Christmas and New Years’? I’m always sad to see the Christmas festivities end (actually so sad), but I love having family in town for the week and being able to take things a bit slower. Though I do have a hard time making myself do slow. Working on this!

I share out this “Popular Recipes” post every year at about this time. Surprisingly, it’s always one of the more popular posts. I never think you’ll really enjoy any type of round-up style post because there’s no new recipe. But you guys have shown me otherwise. I guess it’s nice to have everyone’s favorites recipes all in one place for easy reference!

Before I dive into the recipes, I really just want to say a huge thank you to you all. It’s been so much fun seeing what everyone has been cooking and baking, especially this holiday season. I said this at Thanksgiving….but we’ve never seen so many HBH recipes being made. There’s been a whole lot of cocktail mixing, cinnamon roll baking, pasta tossing, and so much cookie baking. It’s incredible and I’m extra thankful for you guys and your constant support and kindness. We love our little HBH family.

And with that, I hope you guys are having an amazing holiday break!!

  20. I’ve mad so many of your recipes & have 2 of your cookbooks…you are amazing. I went to find one of you recipes and I can’t find it anywhere. It is theBlue chees Bites. could you repost it?

    1. Hey Susan,
      Thanks so much for following along! That recipe is located in the HBH cookbook. Please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy New Year! xTieghan

    I CAN get behind this list because I made so many of the recipes and they were SO DELICIOUS! Thank you for sharing your talents with the world!

  23. I have made quite a few of these recipes and they have been terrific. Tieghan the best thing about 2020 was discovering your website (thanks to my daughter Grace). She gave me both of your cookbooks for Christmas and I am loving them. Absolutely beautiful pictures and recipes that are easy to follow. I am not a social media person so I appreciate the books so much. I’ve told both my daughters that you have the potential to be their generations Martha Stewart! Well done!

    1. Hey Sheila,
      I am so glad you have been enjoying the recipes, thanks so much for giving the recipes a try! Happy New Year! xTieghan

  24. I’ve made several but my favorite is the Greek chicken salad. I’ve made that one multiple times. The funny thing is that I never seem to make it quite the same way twice but I still love it every time!

    1. Hey Lindsey,
      I am so glad you have enjoyed the recipe, thanks so much for giving it a go! Happy New Year! xTieghan

  25. I made some of these and love all your recipes! Your two cookbooks are easily my most used! So surprised butternut squash carb with rosemary bacon wasn’t on this list though that is my favorite meal EVER!

  26. I love ALL your recipes! We make at least one or two a week! My fav we have made on this list is #6 so so yummy! Definitely in our monthly rotation now 🙂

  27. The Broccoli Cheddar Chicken and Rice Casserole is my favourite! It reminds me so much of my childhood when I have it. I can’t wait to try more of the recipes on this list.

  28. I made 2/25 and they were both huge hits in our house – the taquitos and the 25 minute bulgogi chicken. So delicious. Looking forward to trying more of your amazing recipes in 2021! Thanks for all you do!

  29. I’m amazed – I think I’ve made most of these and several of them are in our biweekly dinner rotation: Korean bulgogi chicken and corn, thai black pepper chicken and garlic noodles, chicken tinga taquitos, the sticky ginger chicken and brussels sprouts, cuban rice bake, broccoli chicken and rice casserole, and thai basil sesame cashew chicken (that’s on the menu for tonight – those cashews – I CRAVE THEM!). I found your blog and Instagram in January and following along and trying new recipes has made cooking this year so much fun! Even my picky kids can eat deconstructed versions of your meals, which is the best part for me!

  30. I can’t believe the chipotle chicken tortilla soup didn’t make it! I have made that three times in the last 6 weeks or so! We love it so much! I’m relatively new to HBH but we are hooked on all the recipes. Everything is amazing!

  31. Creamy tortellini veggie soup !!!! Amazing, easy to make, and such a crowd pleaser. Making again within the next week or so 🙂

  32. I make the cheesy chicken zucchini rice bake around once a fortnight and everyone loves it!!! It’s also super handy to freeze and reheat on busy nights! I absolutely love it xx

  33. Thank you from Africa for the most delicious fresh recipes ever and your enthusiasm. The highlight of my day is seeing what recipe pops up in my email. A lot of days I have printed it and made it that night, my favourites being your Thai recipes. I hope you have a well deserved break and I look forward to your emails in 2021. Regards Debbie

    1. Hey Debbie,
      Thank you so very much for following along and trying the recipes! I am so thankful for you being here:) Happy New Year! xTieghan

  34. I made 9 of 25 and many of those 9 I made multiple times. Your recipes NEVER disappoint. Thank you for the hard work and dedication to help us stay inspired in the kitchen.

  35. I just looked at your Christmas Eve and Christmas menu post and didn’t see the tacos listed. When did you make the switch? Or maybe I missed them…

  36. I have told so many people to make THE Tacos! I’m making them for New Year’s Eve bc they reheat so easily. Also the bacon pastry wraps were a huge hit when the fam got home last week. We actually had them with waffles. Keep up the great work!

  37. The spicy honey mustard pretzel chicken fingers is my family’s very favorite. So easy and super yummy! Keep them coming this year as well Tieghan! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next! Happy New Year!

  38. Thank you so much for making my grocery list so much easier with so many inspirational recipes! Happiest New Year to you 🙂

  39. My top go-to has always been the spicy Italian sausage fried sage spaghetti squash lasagna! A great way to impress guests and never not a favorite!

    Obsessed with Half Baked Harvest and recommend the site and book to anyone who will listen.

    Thank you for all your hard work!

  40. I made the crispy chicken tacos, delish, taco night will never be the same! I’m scrolling and starving, can’t wait to work my way through the other 24. Watched you and Katie Couric make the Frosty Mistletoe Margarita, I think that and the tacos are on for tonight!

  41. I just found your site in September and made several of the recipes that made your top 20 and a few others that didn’t, but we’ve enjoyed as well. I also have many more recipes on my list of ones to try!!

    I gifted a friend your Super Simple cookbook for Christmas and she was excited to dive in an try some new recipes also.

    Thank you, Tieghan, for sharing what you love and your passion for cooking. Looking forward to what you cook up in 2021! ☺️

  42. You have been my go to fav food blogger for the past few years, you NEVER disppoint! We made the Frosted Mistletoe Margarita on Christmas eve and had requests to make again on Christmas day, they were that good. My son in love also made the White Pesto Spinach Lasagna.on Christmas eve, seriously delish. Of your 25 I made the Crispy Chipotle Chicken Tacos with Cilantro Lime Ranch, One Skillet Saucy Chicken Tortilla Enchilada Rice Bake, the Healthier Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini Vegetable Soup,. Crispy Chicken Tinga Taquitos with Salty Lime Avocado Crema, One Skillet Saucy Chicken Tortilla Enchilada Rice Bake. We’ve loved every recipe and will continue to try anything and everything you create. Thanks for taking us along on your food journey, its been inspiring and magical.

    1. Hey Jennifer,
      Thank you so much for your super kind message and following along. I am so glad you have been enjoying the recipes and truly appreciate you giving them a try! Happy New Year! xTieghan

  43. Can’t wait to cook my way through those of this list I haven’t tried! As a longtime follower, I just want to say thanks for the continued inspiration! My whole family knows your name, and I gave both my mom and my MIL copies of Super Simple for Christmas this year. Also, random question…in yesterday’s email with the photo of your gorgeous pizza oven, do you have the name of the beautiful white wall tile shown in it? Thank you!

  44. Your method for tacos and taquitos is my new norm! So easy and so much less mess, plus healthier! Even whole shrimp inside the tortillas with your seasonings and a little cheese, cook to perfection on the stove top. I’ll never go back! And the sticky chicken and Brussels sprouts—to die for. And not on the list to my surprise are any of your shawarma recipes. We LOVE even the meatless one with cauliflower—and that’s usually a hard sell with the big guy. I often am undecided for most of the day and then I whip up one of your slow cooker recipes like the tortellini soup on the stove and they come together in about 30 minutes if you dice veggies, Still wonderful! This list gives me a boost on new things and I’m all about that. Can’t believe I’ve only made six of these but with your books and my recipe box on your site, never a week goes by without you! Thank you!

  45. This is so helpful and the ones I have not made are on my list for January! Also I would love at some point a
    “cocktail round up” as your creativity really shines with that genre. And you are right – the week in between the holidays is special and allows us to look back and forward. As a former retail manager turned teacher, no one appreciates the time off at the holidays more than I do! Thank you for your inspiration!

  46. I’ve made most of these recipes this year! You always inspire me to try new things and although the whole family has gained 5lbs! (Looking forward to healthy January! Haha) I’m thrilled to have found you and your delicious and creative dishes. Thanks for a great year of food!

  47. I have tried and loved SO many of these! We just had the Sticky Sesame Ginger Chicken last night and it was another huge hit! I love knowing that I can count on you to produce quality recipes that my family loves. Happy New Year!!

  48. I have some work to do in 2021!!! Just got your cookbook for Christmas😍 the hot honey mustard pretzel chicken tenders were a hit in my house, I made them several times

  49. Made sooo many of these- twice or three times! And found a few I missed and can’t wait to try! Love the round up! Thank you! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  50. So many good ones!! I did the chicken Tinga tacos, chicken rice bake, khao soi, Greek meatballs and orzo. Plus all the other ones not in the top 25 too haha!

  51. Made a lot of these recipes over the year and am looking forward to making more. And my boyfriend got me the Half Baked Harvest cookbook for Christmas….best gift ever!

  52. I’ve made 8 out of these 25 and have printed at least 4 of them for future meals! I discovered your website at the beginning of COVID-19 shutdowns and have made at least 30 of your recipes (probably more!), bought both of your books and introduced your website to all my friends and family! Thanks to you I actually enjoy the process of cooking, which I used to find daunting and extremely repetitive. No more! 🙂 Happy Holidays!

    1. Hey Alex,
      Thank you so much for trying the recipe and following along! I truly appreciate you being here. Happy New Year! xTieghan

  53. So many delicious recipes here. We’ve made 13 of the 25 and have made a few of them more than once. We enjoy so many of your recipes and thank you for sharing them with us.

  54. I am a fairly recent convert (last 15 months) and have been cooking your food very consistently this year. I love the cookbook I have and have made many of the things on this list!! I really appreciate how flavorful your food is and still fairly easy to pull together. I have a 2 and 4 year old and their favorite recipe is cajun popcorn chicken with honey mustard! They LOVE it! This list is so great and I can’t wait to add these into my weekly meal plans. Thank you for making so many of your recipes (and super helpful videos!) available! I also think it’s time I own the other cookbook of yours. Happy new year!!

    1. Hey Shaylee,
      I am so glad you have been enjoying the recipes! Thanks so much for giving them a try and following along! Happy New Year! xTieghan

  55. OMG, I’ve made soooo many of these! My favorite two that I go back to all the time are the Broccoli chicken cheddar and rice Casserole (LOVE IT!) and the Healthier Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini Vegetable Soup. Both of those are delicious and make the house smell amazing. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for 2021!!

  56. I can’t believe that your Herb & Butter Roasted Turkey isn’t #1. Judging from the number of questions and accolades you get btwn Thanksgiving and Christmas, it should be! I just made it again this Xmas and it was as delicious as ever! That moment when you lift off that black gnarly cheesecloth Is a Christmas present in itself! Merry Christmas and thanks for all that you share!

    PS: And your Better Than Takeout Szechuan Noodles should be #2!

  57. I made the molten chocolate crackle pie for Christmas Eve dinner and it was a big hit! My husband doesn’t eat dessert unless it’s chocolate and this met all his expectations! I enjoyed making it as well! This recipe is a keeper! I have both of your cookbooks and so enjoy your website! Thanks for the amazing recipes!! Merry Christmas and hope you have a blessed New Year!
    With Love,
    Cindy

    1. Hey Cindy,

  58. These recipes look wonderful. We are slowly becoming more plant-heavy /non-meat in our meals. Could you do a similar list for your non-meat recipes? The ones we have had from your site have been delicious and we would like to see what others are enjoying. Thanks.

    1. Hey Jocelyn,
      Thanks so much for your recommendation! I actually have a vegetarian section on the blog, but more to come! Happy New Year! xTieghan

  59. I just found your blog this year and I have made something from it almost every week. Any time I’m looking for something new to make, I come here first because your recipes are fantastic. I’m having a baby early next year and I’m currently doing a lot of freezer meal prep, and a good 50% of the things I’m making come from the blog, so thank you for fueling me into the new year!

  60. Yes! And they’re ALL absolutely delicious! The Cuban Rice Bake and Carne Asada Tacos are some of our absolute faves. Thanks for the most creative and delicious recipes!

  61. You’re recipes never disappoint. You are my go to when I need want to try something new, need a favorite or are entertaining. Will be making some of these before the year is over.

  62. I’ve made 8 out of the 25! The tortilla rice bake is my personal favourite, and has gone into our regulars. Thanks for all your hard work this year, you really helped posting every day through this pandemic, and I’m so looking forward to what you’ll do in 2021!

    1. Hey Lou,
