Authentic Mexican Breakfast Tacos

Reviewed: May 7, 2013
This is a regular at our home. I've been making chorizo and egg tacos, burritos, plates, etc., since I was a little kid. We always have a range of bottled hot sauces. You can save a pan by just adding the eggs to the chorizo. And save a pan for warming the tortillas if you have gas burners. Just warm them on the flames with tongs. Also a dab of sour cream, cilantro and cheddar are great compliments to this recipe. :)

Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
This is excellent. I used light mayo, and didn't have tarragon, so I used fresh basil and garlic salt in the sauce. I also used cayenne to spice as one reviewer suggested. I had 3 medium potatoes to use up, so I cube them and then coated them in the leftover sauce and tossed them in the baking dish with the chicken. Really delish! The timing and temp I think are good! I needed 5 more mins, maybe due to taters. Hubby, Me and Friend Enjoyed!!! Thank You!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
this dressing is awesome! As a previous reviewer suggested, i cut the sugar to 1/4, and used balsamic vinegar and red onion. I also added a splash or two more of worcestershire and I thinned the dressing out with a little water. It was kinda thick. I didn't have poppy seeds and this was still delish. I added feta crumbles and chicken. I marinated chicken breasts in paprika & garlic salt for an hour, then sauted with red onions frying pan. My hubby and I loved it.

Green Goddess Dressing II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
This is really delicious! and i love that it's no mayo! Everyone loved it and i'm passing on the recipe per request :) Only suggestion is add salt to taste. I orginally omitted the salt, per one of the reviews, but ended up adding some salt to taste as the anchovy paste i bought was not very salty. This is keeper! Im glad I doubled the recipe! next time i may add some parmesan or something to thicken, but the taste is there! Thank You Rinnie!

Spicy Tomato and Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
very good and easy. First time making lentils, and i now like lentils :) This needed a little more seasoning for my taste, so I added 3 cloves garlic and used a whole, seeded jalapeno, 1 full tsp cumin, dashes of celery salt, 1 can fat free chicken broth instead of water and a pinch of mexican oregano. More fresh basil would be excellent in this. I have a tomato garden in bloom so I used 4 medium fresh tomatoes, instead of canned. This is a hearty soup, and excellent with the recommended sour cream and basil garnishes. Thank You!!!

Roasted Red Pepper Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
i loved this!! so tasty and my husband loved it, he said it was delicious, different and comforting. :) I even messed up somehow and the breading got a bit burnt? not sure if it was the veg oil or if the pan was too hot on med/high heat. It wasn't pretty on the outsidelike the picture but cut in half, it looked great and yum - yum - yum!! When stuffing the chicken, i made slits on the thickest side middle of the breast and slid the knife slightly left and right so i could get more bell peppers in there. I added a little paprika, garlic powder and italian seasons to the breadcrumbs and I didnt have feta cheese so i used mozzerella. Also, I didn't have roasted peppers in a jar, so I used the red bell pepper that i had. I cut it into 4ths and put it in the oven wrapped in foil with a little olive oil and butter and baked at 375 for about 15mins. tasty :) I will definately make this again! Thanks!!!

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
This was a little time consuming but good and worth it. I didn't have sun dried tomatoes, so i subbed in diced tomatoes and added a little more garlic and some paprika to the flour on the chicken. tasty! The cream sauce needed a little something extra for my taste, and it didn't thicken until i put in some cornstarch but for a rich creamy flavor it was very good. will definately try again w/ the sundried tomatoes :) Thanks!

Shrimp Etouffee II

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
delicious, easy & quick! Im not a big seafood eater,and this was delicious to me! I loved the flavor of the sauce with the shrimp. I added a bit more cayenne and used red rooster sauce, cause i like it hot! a little extra garlic, season salt (instead of reg) and I subbed in chicken broth with flour, cause i didn't have the condensed soup. cooked in a skillet and served over white rice with a blend of black,kidney & pinto beans. Husband loved it!Im sure the original recipe w/ the condensed soup is excellent!! and will definately make again! Thanks!

Spicy Fisherman's Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I am not a fish fan but I enjoyed this. I have to get some fish into the diet and I found this was warm & tasty. It was almost more soupy than a pie, so we scooped and served in bowls with rolls. I added some garlic powder and salt, and used basa filets. we like spicy so we topped with a little tabasco. thanks for the recipe :)

Fry Bread Tacos II

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
the dough was a bit difficult to deal with but was tasty! i really liked when the dough was just cool enough to eat, it had a crunchy outside and chewy inside. After the breads cooled, they were mostly chewy but still tasty, especially with all the fixings on top. (I used seasoned shredded chicken, iceberg, tomatoes, grn onion, sour cream, cheese, blk olives, beans & spanish rice.)That said, I had used all recipes to double the recipe and all was good until i added in the last 3rd cup of milk. it made the dough very sticky and so i had to keep adding flour. probably another 1/2 - 3/4c, to which i didn't add more baking powder or salt, which i probably should have. Im wondering if this is the issue of why, even though i pressed them into 1/8" thick or less - they puffed up to about an inch thick in the fryer. ? I also found the dough difficult to make a disc with the indentation. so they were just bumpy delicious dics. I used a small cast iron skillet and fried one by one so, i think next time i will use about 3/4" deep of oil. I found the recipe was more than needed. (i made a splash mess, putting the first few in) i ended up making them about 6" around, and everyone ate one, except my 16 year old nephew who ate 2 & 1/2, and they all said it was really good! :) I have leftovers so i'm going to try to warm them in the oven with other suggested toppings. Will make again, work on my dough skills, this was worth the work!

Slow Cooker Pozole

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I made this new years day and it was soooo good! I used all chicken, and i couldn't get the chili's in time, so i used about 14oz can of red enchilada sauce. everything else i pretty much followed the recipe, except i used hot diced chilis and it was so spicy i had to add more broth (because we had kids eating too). We served with diced avocado, cheese, crushed corn chips and sour creme on top to cut the heat. we also had all the fixings suggested. everyone loved it, even the kids!! and this recipe went a long way. Im making this over and over again! **update** made again, with all pork tenderloin. used a can of chile colorado sauce instead of grinding chilis, added more garlic, fresh & ground, cumin & mexican oregano. Again a huge hit w/ the crowd! made enough for a med/lrg bowl for 12 people. excellent!
