Cheesy Chicken Chilaquiles

I’ve been trying a bunch of Pampered Chef recipes and the latest one is the Cheesy Chicken Chilaquiles, which can be found in the 29 Minutes to Dinner, Volume 2 cookbook.  This actually came out really tasty and I’m totally going to be adding it to our dinner rotation.  However, I am making a few […]

Black Bean Salsa Bread

Since we tried the Easy Bread recipe by Marcia Passos Duffy via the The Heart of New England and it was really good, we figured we could make a couple of specialty breads with it.  So here’s our attempt at Black Bean Salsa bread.  It still needs a little work (we’re thinking it needs some […]

One of the new items I’ve recently gotten for my kit was the Deep Covered Baker. With it, I can make meals in both the oven and the microwave and I wanted to see how it would work. The first recipe I tried was this Mexican Chicken Lasagna and I have to say that it […]

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

One of Jesse’s favorites. The fajita marinade can be substituted with any kind of seasoning desired. This is one I tend to make a lot and it’s actually really nice to make when you’re taking a dish to someone. I just found this out recently and it worked out really nice. Basically, I did all […]

With salsa, there’s a bunch of different things you can do with it. Everyone has their own recipe and way they make it, but here’s mine. Before I found the guacamole recipe, Jesse was having me make this as often as I could since it is a pretty healthy snack. I continually experiment with this […]

Flour tortillas can be substituted for corn tortillas. Ingredients: 1 lb ground beef 1 can of green enchilada sauce corn tortillas cheddar […]
