Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
This is a great base recipe. I made a few tweeks and it came out amazing!! I used 3/4 box of cavatappi pasta cooked for 5 minutes then placed into a greased glass baking pan. I sprinkled a handful of shredded cheddar cheese, 1/2 tsp paprika, and an ounce of cubed gruyere cheese over this. For the cheese mix I heated 2 cups milk, 1 egg, 3 tbl butter, 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, 4 oz cubed gruyere cheese, 2 oz extra sharp cheese cubed, and then all extra shredded cheese I had in my fridge (it ended up being about 1 1/2 cups of various mozzarella, pizza and Mexican blends). Once melted and bubbly that was poured over the pasta. Cooked that uncovered for 10 minutes then added 5 slices of almost cooked bacon and covered with a mixture of buttered and browned Italian bread crumbs, ritz crackers and Panko bread crumbs. Covered and cooked for 15 minutes. Then uncovered sprinkled with a bit of shredded cheddar cheese and baked for 5 more minutes. AMAZING.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2013
This is a great BASE recipe for chicken tortilla soup!! I did this recipe in my crock pot with a few tweaks. I swapped canned chicken for fresh strips of chicken breast. B/c I didn't want to wait for raw chicken to cook in the crock pot, I cooked the chicken in a frying pan for 2 mins. on each side. Add partially cooked chicken to crock pot with 1 Cup of Chicken Broth and let cook on High for 1.5-2 hours. Shred chicken and add the drained corn, drained & RINSED black beans, diced tomatoes (not drained) & the rest of the can of chicken broth plus the second can from the original recipe. ADDITIONS: I added two cans of 10.5 oz condensed cream of chicken to add thickness. And for flavoring I added garlic powder, salt, pepper, and LOTS of chili powder. Top with a dollop of sour cream if you wish and some left over flour tortillas cut into strips and baked. I also garnished with a bit of shredded cheese.
