Salsa Chicken (we just tried this last night... I was skeptical at first but it was DELICIOUS! Definitely a big hit and will be made more often)

Boneless Skinless chicken breasts (however much you need for your family-- we have 11 mouths to feed here)
Taco seasoning packet (1 packet should be enough for 4 breasts)
1 Jar salsa (any kind... we used medium and it was perfect)
1 package shredded cheddar cheese
Sour Cream

Directions--
Preheat oven to 350

Coat both sides of chicken breasts with taco seasoning (I put it in a bowl and dipped chicken in there)

Arrange chicken evenly at the bottom of a casserole dish/pyrex dish

Cover in salsa

Bake approx 40 mins... THEN cover in shredded cheese and let bake for about 5 more mins. to melt cheese


When serving, spoon dollop of sour cream on top. It's DELICIOUS!!

This is a recipe that I use all of the time for a yummy cookie tart. It's super easy to make and it looks fancy. There's rarely leftovers!

Oh, and I use chocolate and peanut butter chips. To each her own!

Salsa Chicken Tostadas

I posted a picture of this on my facebook page tonight. It was super yummy and only took 20 minutes from start (completely clean kitchen) to sit down and eat. I cook all my chicken though on the weekend, so I can start each dish with cooked chicken. If you don't cook your chicken before hand, it will take longer.

1lb chicken chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
1 pkg taco seasoning
1/2 c water
8 tostadas (6 inch)
1 can refried beans
1 jar of salsa
2 cups mexican cheese
1 pkg mexican rice
shredded lettuce
avacodo
sour cream (if desired)

Combine 1 can refried beans, 1/2 jar of salsa, and 1 cup of shredded mex cheese in a microwave safe dish. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. While that is cooking, place chopped chicken in skillet. Cook for 3 minutes or until no longer pink. Add taco seasoning and 1/2 cup water. (I used cooked chicken and only added 1/4 cup water). Cook on med low heat until sauce thickens. Once bean dip is finished, stir until a creamy texture and set to the side. Prepare mexican rice (I use 90 sec Uncle Ben) as directed.
Lay out 8 tosadas. Spread bean dip on the bottom of each tostada. (There will be some left over. This is GREAT with chips). Sprinkle rice on the bean dip. (Again, we had some left). Add chicken and top with the remaining 1 cup cheese. Spoon the remaining 1 cup salsa on each tostada. Top with shredded lettuce, avocado slices and sour cream if desired.

Baked Potato Soup
INGREDIENTS:
2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup flour
7 cups milk
4 large baking potatoes, baked, cooled, peeled and cubed, about 4 cups
4 green onions, thinly sliced
10 to 12 strips bacon, cooked, drained, and crumbled
1 1/4 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
PREPARATION:
In a large Dutch oven or stockpot over low heat, melt butter. Stir in flour; stir until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly, until sauce has thickened. Add potatoes and onions. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until soup begins to bubble.
Reduce heat; simmer gently for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients; stir until cheese is melted. Serve baked potato soup immediately.
This baked potato soup recipe serves 6 to 8.

We add more cheese and green onions to our bowls once it's served, and sometimes I like to add croutons to mine! So YUMMY!

This is hands down my favorite vegetable dish. I am not a huge fan of butter though. I substitute it with a little olive oil. Comes out GREAT!!! Mmmm I'm adding squash to my list now. I want this immediately. I also add just a little bit of green onion at the end. I love green onions and I feel the green really makes it a pretty dish. Oh yeah, my kids EAT IT ALL UP. So don't steer away from it thinking kids wouldn't like it.

Oh that sounds good!!

I'm doing Corn Chowder in the crockpot from an allrecipes.com recipe. I'm just using cubed hash browns instead of shredded:


Ingredients

* 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
* 1 3/4 cups frozen corn
* 1 cup frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
* 1 cup cubed fully cooked ham
* 1 large onion, chopped
* 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
* 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
* salt and pepper to taste

Directions

1. In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.

Hot Fudge Sauce

3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup(1/2 a stick)butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 5 oz can(2/3 cup)evaporated milk *see note below

In saucepan, melt together butter and chips. Add sugar. Slowly stir in milk. Bring to boil and boil gently 8 minutes. Remove from heat and pour into a half quart mason jar. Cool 15 minutes before using. Refrigerate leftovers(will thicken to ganache)and warm for 15-30 seconds in the microwave to use again.

*You can make evaporated milk from dehydrated milk powder if you keep it in the house. I do because it's cheaper than the cans.

For 5 oz of evaporated milk, stir together 1/2 cup each of powdered milk and water.

It costs me $1 to make a jar of this and it's so much better than the store bought stuff!
