This is one of my favorite dishes! the original recipe calls for cooked chicken breasts, but I just purchase a store-bought cooked chicken and take the meat off of it, use as much chicken as desired. You can adjust the chili powder and cumin to taste, and use really whatever beans you desire, I like canellini beans also.
Stuff these with your favorite ingredients! Use only butter for this recipe. This dough should make about 10-12 empanadas depending on the size you are making them. This dough can also be made using a food processor and completely frozen butter pieces, though you will have to be careful not to overprocess the dough when mixing on the processor.
You can prepare this complete casserole and chill until ready to bake, the baked casserole even tastes better the following day after the flavor have had time to blend. You can use as much ground turkey or ground chicken and enchilada sauce as you desire the amounts stated are really only a guideline.
This is so easy to prepare.....the whole recipe is made in one dish, and boy....is it big on taste. (note: if desired, add a can of drained mushrooms along with all other ingredients, and adjust the seasonings to suit taste)
This is a very different style recipe...a rice dish with a chili flavour...if you don't care for a very spicy taste, cut down on the chili peppers...a wonderful side dish. (Note: prep time includes cooking the rice)
These burritos are not just for breakfast, they are a great anytime snack, if you desire, these could be fully prepared, and stored in the fridge....just make sure to bake them 10-15 minutes longer, or they may be frozen, just thaw them before baking.
This is a super-easy low fat vegetarian dish that takes only minutes to throw together, it makes a great light weeknight meal served with a small side salad, you can use stewed tomatoes in place diced and use black beans in place of kidney beans. Top this with low-fat sour cream and salsa.
This is a layered South of the Border beans and rice dish, very easy to put together we love this at our house! Prep time does not include cooking the rice. Tip: I have layered this casserole with cooked ground beef for a main dish meal.
You can double the filling mixture or prepare the complete burrito and freeze, trust me when you taste these burritos you will be making them all the time! If you are using dryed pinto beans then they will need to soak in water for 24 hours. Prep time does not include soaking the beans for 24 hours. The recipe can be made using half ground beef and ground pork if desired Yield is only estimated depending on the amount of filling used in the burrito, all amounts may be adjusted to suit taste.
