Mom's Guacamole

3 lg avocados
1/4 c green olives
1 clove garlic
2 tomatillos
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 to 1 cerrano pepper
1 tbsp lime juice

Mom puts everything except avocados and lime juice in the food processor until it's your desired chunkiness (we like it chunky). Then mash the avocados and mix it with the lime juice and add that to the rest. (She also used a lot more cilantro, lol)

Mmmmmm . . . . It all sounds good. My favorite, easiest go to recipes are:

Chicken Macaroni Casserole
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups cut up cooked chicken (I use one can of canned chicken to make it super easy)
1 1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
1 cup shredded cheese

Stir all ingredients together in order given. Pour into a greased 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for one hour.

Here's another one. Creamy Chicken Enchiladas:

1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 8 oz container of sour cream
1 cup Pace Picante Sauce (I use Enchilada sauce because my family doesn't like the chunks)
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 cups chopped cooked chicken (Once again, you can use a can of canned chicken)
1 cup cheese
6-10 flour tortillas

Mix soup, sour cream, picante sauce, and chili powder. Mix 1 cup of the picante sauce mixture, chicken, and cheese. Spread the chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll up and place seam-side down in 3 quart shallow baking dish. Pour remaining picante sauce mixture over enchiladas. Cover.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. You can then top with tomato and onion if you want to.

Uh, just a thought...could we do maybe a thread of the week where share our favorite recipes of a specific kind? Like maybe, Italian, or salads, or crock pot, or appetizers/sides, or beverages?

Chicken, rice and vegtable soup
5 cups water
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into cubes
3 carrots, chopped
1 onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped (I add half a head of cabbage and 1 or 2 cloves of garlic chopped)
2 cubes chicken bouillon
1/3 cup uncooked white rice
salt and pepper to taste

In a large saucepan over high heat, combine 4 cups water and the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add the chicken, carrots, onion, celery and bouillon and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.
Add more water as necessary. Add the rice and allow to simmer for another 15 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.

We've been eating a lot of soup lately.
