Buffalo Chicken Dip
My coworker makes this for every potluck and the entire office loves it. Everyone is always asking her ahead of time if she's making it and it's the first thing to go when it comes time to eat. I had some leftover canned chicken so I decided to make it today. I made the recipe exactly how you see it here, except I cooked at 20 minutes on 325 in a glass dish instead of using the slow cooker. I even used all off brand ingredients, and it was delicious! I used brand name Frank's Red Hot though... can't skimp on that! No doubt this would be even better with fresh chicken... but it's pretty perfect as is! Oh, and don't cut out the cheddar cheese... it adds a certain depth and dimension to the flavor, especially if you use sharp!

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken
Awesome recipe!! So simple and so flavorful. The lime and cilantro really add a burst of flavor to such a simple set of ingredients. If you're a cilantro freak like me, don't be shy... I'm not sure how much I used, but it was probably about triple the amount... and it was so good! I used frozen chicken breast right out of the freezer with no problem. It doesn't come out quite as juicy as fresh chicken does, but it was still easy to shred and tasted great. Everyone that smelled or tasted it loved it!

Taco Seasoning I
Great tasting recipe! I have yet to use it on plain meat, like ground beef -- I've only used it in recipes so far. However, the flavor is more robust than packet seasoning and I love that I can tweak it to my liking, and don't have to worry about running out so often. If you double this recipe, the weight comes out to 1.25oz, which I believe is the weight of a seasoning packet... but I used ALL of the doubled batch in my most recent recipe and the flavor is VERY strong. A little too strong for my liking, and taco seasoning is probably one of my favorite flavors ever. I'd recommend making a double batch but not using it all immediately, and adding more to taste. I'd recommend cutting down the salt or removing it altogether if you're not a big salt fan -- there's a fair amount of sodium in this already.
