Shredded Beef for Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
Very good, and the crockpot does all the work. I also threw in a small can of diced green chiles. EDIT: Made again 3/27/2011 - added red and yellow bell pepper along with fresh jalapenos (without seeds and membranes) --- also used red wine, as that is all I had. Still very delicious!

Cheese-Stuffed Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
I used some flavored croutons in place of bread crumbs and withheld the salt and pepper because of that. Too lazy to try to roll it. Any kind of cheese would be good. I used a mixture of mild cheddar and monterey jack. Also mixed up some ketchup and BBQ sauce to use as glaze towards the end of baking.

One Pot Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Left them whole (didn't mash) ---- and definitely didn't use THAT much salt.....as a matter of fact, if you use the chicken broth, that is plenty of salt there. I used some beef broth I had saved from cooking a pot roast in the crockpot the day before. Soaked overnight, and left in crockpot to cook all day on LOW.

Green Chili and Cheese Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
I tried this again, using a cheddar / pepperjack leftover mix (mostly cheddar) and used home made green chile salsa. Minus the packaged seasoning. A very versatile dish. I sauteed the chicken breast in a little garlic and olive oil, poured the salsa ontop until cooked, then topped it with cheese at the end to allow enough time for it to melt.

Stephan's Broiled Salmon Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This sounds very good. I think I will use less pesto. This made me laugh though: Use pliers to pull out any that remain. Could only be written by a man!!!! I've never seen pliers in my kitchen !!

Miguelina's Poblanos and Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
I also broil the peppers using a small toaster oven. Try Pepper Jack cheese, makes for a nice flavor! I also choose to bake rather than fry. Also try sauteing some onions, fresh tomatoes (chile serranos if you like HOT) with a little water and chicken caldo (broth). Pour this ontop of the poblanos while they are baking in the oven, or add the poblanos to the mixture in the pan, cover and allow the cheese to begin to melt! Add freshly chopped cilantro right before serving! YUMMY!

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
Loved the BBQ sauce! I grilled some green onions at the same time and tossed them ontop to serve. Very yummy moist chicken. I started the chicken on the grill for a couple of minutes on both sides, then put the sauce ontop and finished baking it in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Roasted Red Pepper Chicken

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
I didn't do the breading, and I added chile poblanos along with the red peppers for a "Mexicana" look. I used Pepperjack cheese instead of feta, also putting some inside the chicken breast. I flattened down and rolled the chicken instead of trying to do pockets. Worked easier for me. Hold the rolls together with toothpicks while baking.

Kamikaze Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
I used Swiss cheese and added half of a grilled chile poblano (similar to the green chiles in a can, but fresh). I also sprinkled some ground black pepper and garlic chips ontop of the burgers prior to putting them on the grill.

I added some shredded Manchego (similar to Jack) cheese in the meat mixture, and then a bit ontop at the end of baking. And I FORGOT to cut the holes!!! Next time! Closer to Halloween!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Very good and easy. I HIGHLY recommend putting the already cooked shrimp in immediately before serving or even adding them to the individual serving bowls. They only need to be warmed up, not cooked. A half hour overcooks them.
