September Recipes: Week Two

Taquitos
(I found this recipe at Our Best Bites. It is so good. I changed it a little bit.)
3 oz Cream Cheese
1/4 C Green Salsa
1 T. Lime Juice
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 finely chopped garlic
2 sliced green onions
2 C. shredded chicken
About 15 corn tortillas
Cooking Spray

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Combine softened cream cheese, salsa, lime juice, spices and chicken in a bowl and mix. Heat corn tortillas in the microwave for about 30 seconds until soft enough to roll without breaking. Fill corn tortillas with chicken mixture. Place on a sprayed, foil lined cookie sheet. Make sure the taquitos don't touch. Before placing in the oven, spray taquitos with cooking spray (this will help the top to brown). Bake for 15-20 minutes. Mmmm...

Twice Baked Potatoes
4 potatoes
3oz cream cheese
1/2 sour cream
1 C. cheddar cheese, shreaded

Chives
Bacon bits (optional)

Bake potatoes in the oven at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes. Take out of the oven and let them cool for 10-12 minutes. Slice the potatoes in half. Using a spoon, gut the center of the potato and place it into a bowl. Add cream cheese, sour cream and 1/2 of the cheese to the potato mixture. Mix with a hand mixer until potatoes are creamy. Add potato mixture back into gutted potatoes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, chives and bacon bits. Place in heated oven for about 10-15 more minutes.


Hamburger Casserole
1 lb ground beef
1 potato, sliced very thin
1 carrot, sliced very thin
1 can of green beans
1 can cream of mushroom or chicken

Brown the ground beef in a pan and then drain. Spray a 9x9 pan with cooking spray. Add a layer of ground beef, then potatoes, then carrots, then green beans and top with a couple spoonfuls of cream of mushroom. Repeat layers. Add about 1/4 c. of water and cover. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour. Take the foil off and sprinkle with cheese and bake for another 10 minutes.

(This also works great in the crockpot.)

Ribs (Find the Recipe HERE)
Mini Pizza

4 English Muffins
1 Can Tomato Sauce
Grated Cheddar or Mozzarella Cheese
Handful of Pepperoni
Oregano

Split the english muffins is two. Spread a small amount of tomato sauce on each english muffin and sprinkle with oregano. Add graded cheese on top and pepperoni. Bake on 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

  2. I want to try the hamburger casserole in the crockpot. I'm always looking for easy crockpot meals, but my husband is really picky. I think he will like this one - meat and potatoes - what's not to like??
