Official Contest Entry: Simply Potatoes 5Fix. I got this recipe when I went to a scrapbooking event. We were staying in a hotel room with a small kitchenette, and the group that I went with didn't want to spend a ton of money on eating out for every meal. Some of this was prepared ahead of time, but came out so delicious!
Super fast hearty dinner! It is actually pretty enough for company too. Throw some frozen dinner rolls in the oven as soon as the burger is done, and you have a complete, delicious meal in about 20 minutes. And the leftovers are even better!
If you can't get quick cooking barley, you can use tiny pasta like acini di pepe, orzo, Israeli couscous or even rice. Or parcook regular barley.
These taste just like the one's your grandmother use to make. They are so thin and perfect. Unless you tell I promise nobody will ever know they are flour tortilla's. If you want to make for a really big crowd, follow the same instructions just use a 6 qt pot and an additional small pack of 8.5 oz shells. Also you can omit the chicken if you want and use canned chicken broth or bouillon cubes.
I received this recipe via email from Taste of Home Budget Friendly Meals. I had to tweak the spices a little as the original spices would have made it WAY too hot for our tastes. I can tell you that when I made this, Jim just kept saying, over and over, how amazing it was! It is very, very easy to put together, and the wow factor is definitely there. If you try this recipe, I know you'll feel the same! :-) (We doubled it for our family of six, and I think you could use any "white" meat in this recipe. We will be trying boneless thighs next time, for texture....)
A great old-fashioned soup recipe;true comfort food. You can make this in your slow cooker in the morning, leave it on Low, but add the macaroni the last 1/2 hour only. Sprinkle on freshly grated parmesan cheese and enjoy a taste of yesterday.
I came up with this recipe when I was craving chicken soup, with rice, not with noodles. I just used whatever I had in my refrigerator at the time and I really enjoyed it. You can substitute spinach for the collards if you would like. Cook it until just wilted, about three minutes.
In my house, there is hardly enough ingredients to go around and when I'm the only one hungry, this soup is the best at making me the happiest. This simple, fast, super cheap recipe makes me happy every time I have it!
My husband has developed this; it's a nice change from noodle soup when you're feeling under the weather. It is quite mild and satisfying. Notes: this can be made in one pot, but my husband prefers to use two. I like to use vegetable juice (which I save and freeze from other meals) instead of the water.
My grandmother named this soup "Pretend Beef Stew" because, well, basically she messed up making beef stew one night and came up with this. I've added veggies I like, but you can add whatever vegetables you like. Be creative; add some bell peppers or hot peppers, maybe use pulled chicken and chicken broth instead of the beef! Have fun with it!
I found this recipe on the back of a Campbell's Soup can. The recipe called for 1 pound of stew meat,but I didn't have any so I used 1 pound of hamburger. Please feel free to add anything else that you might want to.If the vegetables are too large, cut into bite sized pieces. Submitted to "ZAAR" on November 11th, 2007.
A quick, filling meal. The recipe amounts are at best guestimations. I used 3 packages of the dried gravy, 1 large onion, a couple of good handfuls of the carrots, about 4 small stalks of celery, 1 can of crushed tomatoes. Just guessing on the yeild, but it is at least 6 hearty servings.
