Taco Bake

Taco Bake
One food item I always seem to have in my pantry or in my fridge are flour tortillas. They are good for so many things. Tortillas can be made into so many different types of snacks for kids (and grownups). You can cut them up and fry them or bake them. You can make cinnamon chips, quesadillas, tortilla pizzas....The possibilities are endless...and easy on the wallet too. Sometimes when I only have a few left, I like to make this taco bake. Ingredients: 1 pound ground beef 1 packet taco seasoning * water as called for on back of seasoning packet 3 large flour tortillas (8-inch size) 1/2 cup Salsa Con Queso 1 1/2-2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend Directions: Brown and crumble ground beef. Add in taco seasoning and water (following directions on back of seasoning packet). Once the taco meat is ready, turn off heat and add in 1/2 cup salsa con queso. I like a mild salsa con queso. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray an 8-inch round baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Then slice and serve.

Family Food: Easy Roasted Vegetable and Quinoa Salad Posted on October 19, 2012 by S If you’ve been put off by bland tasting quinoa salads (as I have), this recipe for roasted vegetable and quinoa salad may just change your mind. For the longest time, I put the blame on quinoa itself. Despite that fact that quinoa is a complete protein high in fibre, iron and magnesium—an all-round superfood—I’d avoided it like the plague for many years because the first time I’d eaten quinoa, I felt like I was being punished. It tasted like damp cardboard someone had forgotten to season. Then my pre-natal personal trainer, C insisted that I try making my own quinoa salad based on her instructions. How To Make Hard Taco Shells In Your OvenPlus . . . A Recipe For Baked Tacos!One Good Thing by Jillee This recipe has got to be one of the bigger successes I have had in the kitchen in a long time! Everyone in the family LOVED these! Not a speck was leftover, which is always a sign that it really and truly was a HIT.

Macaroni and Beef with Cheese — <br/>Childhood Love Mid-week Macaroni and Beef with Cheese, photo by Donna I needed a dinner that was easy and delicious, would please everyone, one that also reheated well in case my daughter’s track meet ran late, and I had to be able to make it long before serving so it would be just a matter of reheating come dinnertime. There are of course a thousand options that fit these criteria, but last week, I was in a nostalgic mood and thought back to school lunches, one of my favorites, macaroni and beef. We were always famished by lunchtime and this dish was dependable and impossible to screw up by a 1970′s school kitchen.

Sweet Potato and Spinach Burrito I think there is a notion that produce grown with pesticides means that the produce is bigger and more “perfect” looking. I would like you to take this sweet potato as evidence against that notion. I watched this sweet potato get dug up and this guy was actually on the smaller side. If you can’t tell, this sweet potato equaled about 9 cups diced. What do you do with 9 cups of sweet potatoes? You make pureed sweet potatoes to use (or freeze) in many different recipes.

John Wayne Casserole Soooo, yeah. The only reason I made this recipe was because it's called 'John Wayne Casserole'. That's it. My husband loves John Wayne. In fact, Jesse's middle name is Wayne because of Heath's love for 'The Duke' (I wanted to name him Jesse Barret J. so his initials would be JBJ, like Jon Bon Jovi, but Heath said over his dead body. Whatever). Eggs in Avocado Slices for a Festive Holiday Breakfast digg Eggs in Avocado Slices for a Festive Breakfast to Remember Holidays are a time for indulgence.

Baked Eggs in Potato Skins How is it already Thursday?! I hope everyone else’s week is going by as quickly as mine, although I almost wish I had more time this week! In any case I’ve been running back and forth to the kitchen all day today. Just a Spoonful of: Avocado / Tomato/ Mozzarella Salad Avocados Never had them? Don't think you like them? Keep reading. We were in the same "I don't like avocados" boat. Chicken Enchiladas I absolutely LOVE this recipe…now that I think about it, it was the recipe I made when I had my first “dinner party” 9 years ago. I also made this dish a couple weekends ago when we had our dear friends over for “Mexican Night” and a game of Balderdash! Let me tell you…the leftovers are every bit as tasty.
