We love to eat these for dinner; they're fast and easy. They are low in fat too! You can also throw in some rice and add sour cream for dipping along with the salsa. I cook the chicken in the oven (marinated in luisiana hot sauce and salsa) and then I make the Quesadillas when the chicken is still hot. You can also use previously cooked chicken.
Ted Allen is best known for being the food and wine guy on Bravo's popular Queer Eye For The Straight Guy. But he was an accomplished cook and writer long before Bravo. This a great recipe because it takes little effort and produces results that make people think otherwise. Allen says you can add cooked chicken or shrimp or asparagus to this dish. I like it with soba, a Japanese-style noodle made from buckwheat, but you can make it with penne, fettuccine, or farfalle, as well.
When you are hungry for good salsa but don't want to chop away for it. Easy dump recipe. The only chopping you have to do is the peppers and cilantro(if you like it). I just buy a bunch of cilantro, chop it up, and freeze the rest. That way it's ready to just add the next time you make salsa. The corn and/or beans are optional. Adjust the peppers, salt, lime juice, and Cumin to taste. Enjoy.
This recipe makes a ton and can be prepared quickly. It is a good dish to take when someone is ill or has a new baby. I try to keep all of the ingredients on hand so I can prepare it in a hurry. It was given to me by a friend.
I found this in a Bed & Breakfast cookbook. I always make sure I have the three main ingredients (tortillas, cheese, and sauce) on hand for this recipe, as it is a super quick-prep dinner for those evenings when you don't have forever to prepare dinner. My husband loves these even when I make them without meat. Hope you all enjoy this!
Super fast stew for when you need something fast and healthy. This relies on canned goods so you can stock your pantry instead of running out for fast food. Adapted from a recipe in "Healthy Foods". You can use whatever spices you choose. Sometimes I add cumin, sometimes I add Italian seasoning. It depends on my mood and what types of beans and tomatoes I have added.
A nice change from tomato sauce. We love this for a fast dinner. My girls (ages 2 and 5)like it as well and it's a good way for us to get them to eat some spinach! (You know, if you mix anything with cheese it tastes great)!
Cooking for one is more difficult than cooking for a crowd. Sometimes you want something savory but don't have time to make it. This recipe can be modified to serve as many people as you want and tastes as if you've spent hours preparing it! Substitute any potato you want, btw. Just make sure their skin is thin enough to crisp.
No pepperoni here! But lots of Greek flavor with garlic, feta, and kalamata olives. One of these makes a nice meatless lunch (or two if you have a big appetite). Submitted for Ready Set Cook Summer 2005.
