Chicken Mango Salsa Salad with Chipotle Lime Vinaigrette
I made this with a few (minor) changes (feta instead of blue cheese, toasted the pecans, added romaine and left out the broccoli slaw and just used diced red pepper instead of the three-color dice). The flavors in this salad are fantastic. I grilled my chicken with a bit of chipotle seasoning (Mrs. Dash, maybe, or McCormick?). My mango wasn't really ripe enough, so I added just a sprinkle of sugar - and when I had the mango salsa all prepped it just didn't seem "mango-ish" enough, so I diced up some frozen mango and added that, as well - maybe about 3/4 c. My husband and 13yo son really enjoyed this, I'll be making it again. I served this in individual large pasta bowls - it made three large salads, with enough left over for a small salad for my lunch the next day (I kept the components separate until ready to eat). Served with crusty bread/butter. Delish, thanks for the recipe!

Hot Tamale Pie
We didn't care for this one. Tried the Cheesy Cornbread Casserole from this site, we give that one *****! Plus, it's much easier - a win/win!

Oven-Baked Onion Rings
Not pleased at all with this recipe. I made it as written. The onion rings were bland, the coating was dry. Not worth the time or effort. My husband and son ate one or two, then left the rest on their plates.
