    Cheddar's Santa Fe Spinach Dip is amazing but VERY fattening! I found their recipe and altered it to make is healthier but still cheesey and yummy with a little SW kick! Even my picky- nothing green guy- ate this and loved it!

    Recipe #145776

    This juicy chicken and tangy cream sauce are wonderful for lunch or supper. On the go? These are great warm or cold and make great lunch, picnic or beach fare! They are very portable when wrapped in foil. Perfect with fresh island fruit and a cold tropical drink! RSC#8 3rd place

    Recipe #161334

    This is a long time family favorite in my house and is one of our 'comfort' foods. I make this with fresh [raw] sausage from Burton Sausage Co in Burton, TX. If you ever go through the town it is a must stop- Awesome jerky and dry sausage- sausage dried like jerky but not as tough) I got this recipe from a cajun neighbor/friend of mine. Always a 'go to ' when pressed for time or don't feel like cooking! Fits many regional cuisine categories because of it's basic ingredients of sausage, potatoes and onion are staples in many countries across Europe, North America and beyond. Sausage has long been popular in the SW. Maybe it started in covered wagon days and early cowboy days bc it was easy to carry and store??? I have never really measured the items in this recipe- When asked how much? I always say 'enough'. After many requests I decided to try to get it down on paper! So here goes!

    Recipe #134760

    My kids named 'em this 'cuz they is so good! LOL Great with soups, stews, jams, jellies or just by themselves. Who ever said homemade was hard just didn't know Mama! Extra note: Edited 3/07 to answer questions and help you make these come out perfectly. You can even add garlic powder and cheese to make those 'famous restaurant type' biscuits, BUT BETTER. Edited 8/08 to add yes these are basic biscuits. To add additional flavor try adding in herbs and seasonings as stated in the previous edit above. Onion powder, garlic powder, fresh cracked black pepper, herbs like oregano or rosemary. You could even brush the top with melted butter when done baking or add some Butter Buds or Molly McButter if you like. This also doubles very easily. and again 11-08 This dough is very wet and sticky. Make sure your hands are well floured and gently press into shape to knead- do not knead vigorously, you will have a mess. Gently pat and use a kneading motion to gently fold the dough into itself and form into a square shape.

    Recipe #134775

    Simple snack to throw together for unexpected company. Ranch 'anything' is very popular here in TX.

    Recipe #135640

    My kids say this is better than 'the blues' and gobble it up, even when I toss in a handful of cooked veggies like broccoli, peas, carrots, etc.... Make it a one dish meal with some tuna, cooked ham, etc... It is just as easy as the 'blue box' at least I think so and it is much healthier!

    Recipe #135662

    Yummy side dish to serve with any type meat, especially pork. This dish is very popular along the Canadian border as well as with Norwegian immigrants to America and Canada. Try this with a shot of Amaretto added in... mmm...

    Recipe #137321

    You do not need to be afraid of cooking rice again! lol Real rice is so much better for you than instant. So here is a basic recipe that will have you cooking rice like a pro!

    Recipe #137364

    These impressive pastries are so simple using refrigerated crescent rolls and a few pantry staples. Based on Pillsbury recipe.

    Recipe #162557

    Light, refreshing and cooooollll! Posted for Zaar's World Tour 2005- Australia

    Recipe #135529

    They are not called Rigamarta's for nothing! My friends started calling them this after only ONE drink! They pack a punch but are very flavorful and yummy. You dont really taste the alcohol so be careful! These are 'on the rocks' which makes them easier to make by the pitcher. If you prefer frozen just mix all ingredients with a blender filled 1/2 way with ice and blend. They are also great made 'virgin' for those who do not care to imbibe!

    Recipe #135648

    5 minutes is all it takes to make this creamy, smooth and yummy bean dip. It is similar to a hummus but different enough to be called MINE and ALL GONE! lol I found this recipe years ago on the Kraft website I think and changed it up to make it my own. Those who turn their nose up at it but then later try it become hooked instantly. Great with Pita crisps or veggies. Update: Changed the amount of salad dressing listed to 1/2 to 1 cup. Originally posted as 1 cup but some reviewers felt that was too much. Please start with 1/2 cup and add more to your taste.

    Recipe #141369

    As fast as you can heat a can of veggies you can have this special side ready to serve! I hate canned green beans yet this is one veggie my dd will eat without complaint. This forced me to find a way to make us both happy. Hope you enjoy this one!

    Recipe #162873

    Easy, rich, fast and yummy dessert. Your guests will never guess the crust layer is saltines! Pretty enough for company but easy enough for everyday! Time to make does not include refrigeration time- 4 hours Very yummy made with fresh strawberries from Mexico, Texas and California.

    Recipe #132335

    Breakfast comes early so I assemble this casserole the night before and pop in the oven in the morning while I inhale my coffee! This was designed for my meat and potatoes only cowboy BUT you can add anything to it in the meat layer. Very very adaptable and cheap!

    Recipe #135657

    I gave these a tasty SW twist. Hope you like them.

    Recipe #135687

    Ground meat of your choosing, cheese and tomato sauce but fixed up 'fancy'. My grandma use to make this for me when I was a child. Kid friendly, easy and good.

    Recipe #150345

    The yummy coconut shrimp you love with a touch of cayenne to liven things up! The tropical goodness of the coconut really adds a nice touch here. I have found these in Southern (tropical) parts of the USA but they are indicative of any tropical local such as parts of Asia, Hawaii, the Caribbean and so on. Two sets of directions allow you choose whether to bake or fry.

    Recipe #151955

    This is MY recipe and method for preparing hot wings for a party! Prep and clean up is a breeze! I always get RAVE reviews! Especially from the clean up crew! lol I have changed this recipe to include instructions on fresh OR frozen wings. Please let me know what you think. Update: This weekend made these again! Seasoned with garlic powder and cajun seasoning and grilled them starting with a preheated grill set to high. Oiled grill racks and seared each side of the chicken, then cooked over low to perfectly done and brown, crispy perfection. Removed from grill and tossed in sauce! Again, no messy pan to clean! :)

    Recipe #164242

    This yummy rice is a great way to sneak some veggies into your loved ones who would otherwise pass on them. Wonderful change from the usual red Spanish rice usually served with Tex Mex or Mexican foods. Similar to the rice served in one of my fave Mexican Restaurants in Houston, Guadalajara. I liked it so much I HAD to try to duplicate it when we moved away. This is as close as I can get. Hope you like it!
