    Pantry Dinners

    You should have most of the ingredients for these on hand. If you neglected to plan ahead you may be able to make these. And when times get lean you can't always go to the store for produce. You can take gallon zip bags, put in the cans you need, a smaller zip bag with the spices, and an index card with the recipe (just print it off in index card size). For many recipes you can just open a bunch of cans, cook an onion, and dinner's in the oven!

    A healthy turkey chili recipe. Very easy to make (as long as you have a can opener) and it is easy to keep the ingredients on hand. I use as many 'no-salt-added items as I can find) Whenever ground dark-meat turkey goes on sale I buy a bunch of one pound packages to freeze away. Serve this with crackers or tortilla chips.

    Recipe #345640

    Spicy, taco tasting soup. Very easy. About 5 minutes prep time.

    Recipe #251443

    This recipe was tucked away inside a cookbook my mom gave me, and I've just recently tried it. Very tasty, not spicy, so everyone should be able to enjoy it's different taste. I used ground turkey and had great success with it...enjoy!

    Recipe #257702

    I got this recipe from my best friend's family. This is the easiest chicken tortilla soup! It's not exactly traditional or authentic - but it's delicioso!

    Recipe #407396

    An easy and healthy vegetarian burrito filling that tastes delicious.

    Recipe #406581

    Recipe #129662

    Edamame is an excellent source of protein and delicious tasting. This can be made into a more hearty chowder by adding 1 to 1 1/2 cups of cubed ham or chicken.

    Recipe #160954

    As you can tell by looking at my recipes, we love black beans. We really like soup too! This is delicious! Great for a cold day. Recipe from "America's Best Slow Cooker Recipes." Cooking time is if you cook soup on Low.

    Recipe #113235

    Clam Chowder for the Crock Pot (or not)

    A wonderful answer to the family desire for slightly spicy food! Easy and quick to fix with ingredients you probably have on hand!

    Recipe #75783

    This is a great tasting recipe and so easy that even my daughter doesn't complain when I ask her to make it.

    A wonderful accompaniment to any meal! These taste just as great reheated in the microwave for about 20 seconds each. You could substitute pepper jack or Monterey Jack for the cheese. You could also sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top.

    Recipe #27945

    Came from the Better Home and Garden's Meat Stretcher cookbook. It's kinda like hamburger helper for people who can't have pasta. This is my husband's favorite thing for me to make. I regularly use a can of white kernel corn (never tried yellow) instead of two cans garbanzo beans but would recommend trying all garbanzo beans first.

    I love this pot pie variation. It's quick and cozy, made with stuff I always have on hand. I prefer cornbread stuffing, and if it's available I add chicken.

    Recipe #51528

    I like to think of this vegetarian dish as Egyptian-style chilli. I was first introduced to it during a trip to Egypt four years ago, where it was nearly all we ate for a week! It's served in "fast food" type restaurants, sold from carts by street vendors and made in the home. There can be many variations, but this is close to the one I grew to love. By the way, this is a great recipe when you need to feed a crowd on the cheap.

    This wonderful rice dish has the texture of risotto without the constant stirring. Taken from the Oct 2002 issue of "Bon Apetit."

    This sounds so yummy! I haven't tried it yet, but with the weather cooling down, it's high up on my list.

    Recipe #74224

    I got this recipe from my friend Shelly. I made a few modifications for my family and now it's one of our favorite dinners. It is very low point friendly (if you're on Weight Watchers) and high in taste. We have enjoyed it year round.

    Recipe #117037

    A quick, very easy, low clean up way to make enchiladas. I adapted this from a few other recipes. We prefer flour tortillas but you can use corn. Corn does work better if they are warm, so putting them in the microwave for 30-40 seconds makes them more pliable. You can always substitute fresh cooked ground beef, turkey or chicken for the canned meat.

    Recipe #147274

    I found this in the Sunday coupon inserts of the Houston Chronicle, and after changing it up just a smidgen, we really enjoy it as a quick and easy and inexpensive meal! It's a drier casserole, so if you like creamy ones, you may want to add more milk. I'm just posting my version. I think you could probably make this with tuna for a yummy variation, also! I hope you enjoy!
