Easy Chicken Burritos | The Family Kitchen Chicken Burritos I made a roasted chicken over the weekend, and after enjoying it on the first day, I’ve been trying to come up with a more innovative recipe than just a simple sandwich. When I spotted some leftover tortillas in the fridge, I instantly thought of finally making my own homemade burritos. One of my embarrassing, guilty pleasures are those cheap, frozen burritos. I don’t know what it is about them, besides the fact they are loaded with fat, but I have loved them for years. Easy Chicken Burritos Ingredients 2 cups cooked shredded chicken 1 -15 oz can re-fried beans, I used vegetarian 1 cup salsa 1 – 4 oz can green chilies 1 medium onion, diced 1 clove garlic, diced fine 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1/4 teaspoon coriander 1/4- 1/2 teaspoon chile powder 1 tablespoon olive oil toppings chopped lettuce chopped tomato shredded cheddar cheese large flour tortillas sour cream guacamole additional salsa Method 1. 2.

How to Make The Perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich As many of you may know, I am completely obsessed with grilled cheese sandwiches! They are so simple and yet so irresistibly good! Over the years I have made countless grilled cheese sandwiches and more recently I have been experimenting with them and sharing my adventures with you. I recently realized that although I have posted a lot of grilled cheese sandwich recipes, I have not written about the basic grilled cheese sandwich or gone into much detail about how to make a grilled cheese sandwich. Since I have picked up a few tricks along the way, I thought that it was about time that I shared them with you. At its base a grilled cheese sandwich is pretty simple consisting of bread, butter and cheese. Lets start with the bread: What you are looking for in the end result with respect to your bread is a light, crispy, and toasty outside with a moist and tender inside that has soaked up all of the buttery goodness while still retaining the ability to hold in all of the melted cheese.

Twitter Reuben Sandwich My absolute favourite thing to do with corned beef leftovers has to be making reuben sandwiches . There is just something magical about the combination of tender corned beef, tangy sauerkraut, creamy Russian dressing and Swiss cheese wrapped in rye! I like to grill my reuben sandwiches to melt the cheese and give the rye a nice and crispy texture a warm buttery flavour. Reuben sandwiches are pretty easy to make though there is one tricky part and that is dealing with all of the liquid in the sandwich from the juicy corned beef, the sauerkraut and the Russian dressing. No one likes a soggy sandwich and luckily there are some easy ways to deal with the problem. First you want to really squeeze the excess liquid from the sauerkraut and if it still has a lot of moisture you can saute it in a pan to get rid of even more of it. It's so easy to make your own Russian dressings! Get ALL 8 Closet Cooking eCookbooks in a bundle for 40% off! Reuben Sandwich ingredients directions Russian Dressing
