Three Bean Slow Burn Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
Quick, easy, inexpensive, and flavorful. I'm not a lover of overly spicy food, so I used one seeded jalapeno pepper instead of the 4 habaneros. I also got the chili beans and salsa in the mild flavor. Ended up using about a 1/4cup of chili powder and added about 1/8 cup of garlic and onion powder. The recipe didn't specify if we are suppose to drain the canned beans and tomatoes... I didn't drain some of my cans of tomatoes and my chili was a little too soupy so I had to add another can of drained beans... so my advice is to drain everything except the chili beans. The salsa will add the right about of liquid back into the chili. I served ours with sour cream and cheese, the end result was yummy with a little kick... no burn.

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
I tweaked this & the family loved it. I was feeding 8 people & I wanted enough for them to get seconds & still have leftovers for the next day so I tripled the recipe. I boiled 2 whole chickens in water w/ a pack of taco seasoning then deboned & chopped up the meat. I put all the chkn mixture ingred in a pot & heated it up instead of a bowl. I followed the recipe ingredients except - used Mexican blend cheese & queso fresco, only 2 cups sour cream, 1 cup white onions (finely chop the onions b/c chunky onions will not fully soften in your enchil), added 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper, 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro, 1 chopped jalepeno pepper (w/o seeds to min the heat but still add flavor), 4 tsp of crushed garlic, & 1 bunch of chopped green onions. I seasoned my chicken mixture to taste by adding onion powder (1 tsp), garlic powder (1 tsp), and cajun seasoning (1/2 tsp). I felt that the enchiladas would need a cream sauce on top so I mixed 1 can of cream of chicken, 1 can cream of poblano, 1/2 cup cilantro, 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper, 1 can rotel w/ only half the water drained and seasoned to taste with onion & garlic powder & cajun seasoning. I baked the enchiladas for 20 min as the recipe specifies then I topped with my sauce & cheese & cooked it another 7 minutes. I made 28 enchil last night & I still have chicken mixture & sauce to make another 20ish tonight (or freeze for another day). The only pain was deboning/chopping the chkn- everything else was easy.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
Great lasagna! I followed the recipe almost exactly except for the following: I used ground turkey and turkey sweet Italian sausage, added about a tsp of garlic and onion powder, and used fresh basil (about 6-7 chopped leaves). I also added a few shakes of nutmeg to the ricotta and soaked the lasagna noodles in water like other reviewers suggested. I was also going to use fresh pasta but I couldn't find it. Fresh pasta tastes much better than dry so get it if you have it in your store and don't mind spending the extra money. I doubled the recipe, used a 12x16in pan and made 3 layers. Some people mention that they had a lot of sauce remaining. I had about 2 cups. We just poured some on top of our lasagna and dug in.

Chicken Nacho Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
I like these tacos much better than regular tacos. I made a few changes to the recipe.... Since I cook for a large family, it was cheaper for me to buy a block of Velveeta than a bunch of cans of cheese so I melted the Velveeta with a can of Rotel tomatoes. I'm not a fan of canned chicken so I used grilled diced chicken from the frozen food section. I broke down the chicken into smaller chunks as I sauted it in the oil with the onions and chili powder. We ate them with whole grain taco shells. A YUMMY QUICK MEAL!

Ranch Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
These burgers were good, but as the other reviewers noted, we did not taste the ranch at all. I used 2 packs of the ranch and only 1/4 cup of the crushed crackers. We also cooked them in the oven instead of the grill. They burgers were moist and tasty... but I wouldn't call it a ranch burger. I believe part of the problem is that using a whole chopped onion is too much. I loooove onions, but I think the flavor of the onion is partially responsible for us not being able to taste the ranch. Next time, I plan on using 3 packs of ranch, and only half of a small onion.

Chipotle Cheeseburger

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
These burgers were great. Flavorful and not dry at all! But the way we had them was slightly different from this recipe. I had my brother cook them because I had a headache. He's autistic and not that great of a cook... but I figured this recipe would be simple enough for him to make. He didn't measure his ingredients... I believe he used about a half cup of mayo, and he used the entire can of peppers and sauce.. which I figure was about 4 peppers and about a half cup of sauce. Instead of making the chipotle mayo as the directions calls for, he mixed everything together (the mayo, ground beef, garlic, peppers, sauce, etc). He also cooked them in the oven instead of the grill. The burgers still came out great. I was worried that using all the peppers would make the patties too spicy but they turned out to have just a slight, nice kick. The only downer was that we used cheap ground beef (73/27) so the pan was full of grease when they were done. Next time I will use leaner beef and cook them on the grill so that the fat can drip off the patties while they cook. 4/19/12 update: I made these burgers again myself a few days ago and they were great. I doubled the recipe, used ground turkey instead of beef, mixed the mayo w/ the meat, added 1 egg, used the whole can chipotle and sauce (small can- I think its about 4 oz or so). I added more cilantro... maybe a 1/2 cup & cooked patties in oven. The burgers were great & not dry thanks to the mayo in the meat mixture.
