Some of you may remember I'm cleaning out my pantry, frig, and freezer. I'm at the end of groceries, so I don't have much to work with. Here's where you and your creativity comes in: I want to use some left-over store-bought Southwestern Dip (sour cream based) in a very simple chicken dish. Suggestions?

You could use the dip instead of sour cream..

Great idea, Nurse Ellen. Maybe I can make this next week since last night's dinner, Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken, was also cooked with salsa. Thanks!

Use it in place of the sour cream, salsa and taco seasoning in this.

At least this would look different from the first recipe since you mix everything together. I think I would still add a little bit of the taco seasoning. Great find, New Day! Thanks.

I love foil pack dinners! They are so easy. I may have to make this after I go to the store since I am out of potatoes. Saved though.

Feb. 20, 2013 11:33 am

Feb. 20, 2013 11:44 am
You know, nanny, this is possible! I have some canned green chilies and some whole kernel corn in the freezer. And this southern girl always has the fixins' for cornbread! A great idea from another Memphis girl! Thanks!

your cornbread recipe is what i grew up with- you are the only other person in the world(except family) that knows what cornbread is-- but my family cut our cb different than anyone i have ever seen-- not like a pie or cake-- like cornbread-lol- once down the middle turn 45 degrees- then once in the middle and twice on each side-- ya get 4 "corners" to fight over
