Default Recipe Exchange

Yes...I know there are only around 28 ladies on the board...but I thought I'd start a recipe exchange. I know some of you guys can cook too, besides chicken fingers and pizza.
I'll start, this one is requested by BlueXJ.

Chicken Enchiladas

Cook a lb of chicken thoroughly then cut into pieces.

In a sauce pan, combine:
- 1/2 cup of onion
- 1 teaspoon of corriander
- 2 tablespoons of butter
Cook until onion is soft

In a small bowl, or the sour cream container, combine 8oz tub of sour cream (do not use light/low fat/fat free because this makes the sauce too creamy) along with 2 tablespoons of flour.

Add 1 cup of chicken broth in the sauce pan with the onion mixture. Add the sour cream mixture to that as well. Add a small can of diced green chilies, 4oz can or the smallest can they have at the store, also add 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese. Add chicken, cook on low until the mixture gets thick and bubbly.

You can set aside a cup of the mixture for the top of the enchiladas, or just use whatever is left. Place desired amount in the tortilla shell and place seam side down into a baking dish.
Cook at 350* for 35 minutes, covered. During the last 10 minutes, sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese on top of the enchiladas, tomatoes, black olives, or whatever else you'd like on top of your enchiladas. Voila! Good enchiladas!

I made this for Bones and KnightKrawler and wife and they all liked it and its one of me new favorites:
Spinach Stuffed Chicken
INGREDIENTS:
1 (10 ounce) package fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded pepperjack cheese
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
1 pinch ground black pepper
8 slices bacon

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Place spinach in a large glass bowl, and heat in the microwave for 3 minutes, stirring every minute or so, or until wilted. Stir in sour cream, pepperjack cheese, and garlic.

Lay the chicken breasts out on a clean surface, and spoon some of the spinach mixture onto each one. Roll up chicken to enclose the spinach, then wrap each chicken breast with two slices of bacon. Secure with toothpicks, and arrange in a shallow baking dish.

Bake uncovered for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, then increase heat to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C), or use the oven's broiler to cook for an additional 5 to 10 minutes to brown the bacon.


Taco Soup


2 cans of diced tomatoes
1 can corn
1 can black beans
1 can pinto beans or lima beans
1/2 cup of celery
1 pack of taco seasoning

chicken or hamburger

*You can drain the juices depending on the thickness you want.

mix all together in a large pot on medium, until hot, serve with tortilla chips, shredded cheese and sour cream

You can be creative with the taco soup, add japalenoes, use mexican flavored tomatoes, whatever you want its so easy and easy to be creative.

Two words...meat loaf

1lb ground beef
1 egg
1 to 1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 small can of V8, I think it's like 8oz
A handful of chopped onions

Bake at 350 until it looks brown on top and starts drying out in the middle. 25-35min

Edit: I forgot to add you actually have to mix the ingredients, go figure huh.

Take a pot of water.
Boil it.
Drop in Meijer Brand Macaroni and Cheese.
Put 3 hot dogs on a plate in the microwave for 30 secs.
Stir noodles.
Move the middle hot dog to the outside, roll each one, then place back in for another 30 secs.
Stir noodles.
Once noodles are to desired softness, dump them in a strainer in the sink.
Cut a hot dog from end to end, leaving two halves.
Cut the two halves from end to end, leaving 4 quarters.
Then cut the 4 quarters perpendicular to the first cuts, about a 6th of an inch.
Repeat with other two hotdogs.
Take the noodles, put them back in the pan.
Add the packet of cheese powder.
Then add milk. I recommend a little extra.
Stir until noodles are covered equally and there are no hunks of powder left.
Add hot dogs.
Mix.
Put into bowl and get a nice tall glass of ice cold milk.
Enjoy the meal while watching Law and Order: CI, followed by Law and Order:SVU on USA Network, where characters are welcome.
Then drink the cheese sauce from the bowl, if you followed my recommendation of extra milk.

This is my nightly ritual.

Not mine but made it this past weekend and it rocked. Use Golds or Reds instead of Russets tho.

Serve this flavorful potato soup with crusty bread or corn muffins.
INGREDIENTS:
6 tablespoons butter
3 leeks, white only, thinly sliced
6 to 8 ounces diced country ham, or smoked ham
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups diced peeled baking potatoes
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley, or 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
2 teaspoons fresh or freeze-dried chopped chives, optional
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 cups half-and-half or whole milk
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
salt, to taste
PREPARATION:
Heat butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add sliced leeks and country ham. Sauté, stirring frequently, until leeks are tender. Add flour and stir until well blended. Add the chicken broth and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly.

Add potatoes; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Add parsley, chives, if using, and pepper, to taste. Add half-and-half or milk and cheese; stir until cheese is melted. Taste and add salt if necessary.
Serves 6.
