This is quite tasty, the jalapeno pepper is only optional I like to add in for extra heat, Italian sausages with the casings removed may be used in place of the ground beef or use ground turkey, I also like to add in some cooked crumbled bacon or smoked dry sliced sausage but that is only optional :)
I had some leftovers from Recipe#146372 and I didn't want to make anymore Sloppy Joes,so I came up with this. For the pasta I used elbow macaroni,but feel free to use what you have on hand.And for the meat,use what ever you have leftover from any Sloppy Joe recipe.I suggest using the mild Ro-Tel,the original might be to hot for the kiddos :).

A recipe for making inexpensive, yummy, unadulterated yogurt at home. This is thick, so to make it thinner, omit the powdered milk and/or let it work for less time. With planning, this could be set to work overnight (start it about 1.5 hours before you want to be able to leave it alone overnight). We get the best taste with natural, non-homogenized milk. But regular milk works well too. You could double this recipe if you have a big enough pot, enough containers, and 2 heating pads. We don't like using much bigger containers because it seems too liquid-y and doesn't set as well.
Tastes like the real thing without all the work. Took the idea from recipe & comments from recipe # 72409 and made some changes and came up with this dish. It was a surprisingly good and a super easy one dish meal.
The theory is you dump this in a bag and freeze to pull out later. There are many variations which I will post separately but it's amazingly easy to make these up and have a different "dump" chicken every week!
This recipe was given to me by my Mother-in-law who raised 9 children and taught school for 40 years and didn't have much time to cook. It remains a family favorite with my children. Last night I had no broth, so I mixed Lipton's Garlic and Herb soup (1 packet) and 4 cups of water and it was wonderful, really added richness to the broth.
This wonderful casserole combines everything you need for a well-balanced meal with the terrific taste of Chicken Cordon Bleu. Great for guests or for a potluck as well, as kids and adults both seem to like the combination of flavors.
This is the greatest recipe for hot ham & cheese sandwiches. Works as a quick dinner item or appetizer. You can make whatever quantity you need. I usually make 12 in a 9X13 pan. Sometimes I substitute turkey and provolone for the ham and swiss for a different taste.
Who doesn't like bacon cheeseburgers? This is sooooo good and family friendly. PLUS, it's a whole meal in one pot! All 4 of my kids love it, as do me and my husband. It is kind of like "glorified hamburger helper" but you can tell it is from scratch! It's also quick and easy :) This recipe will serve 8, so you may want to half it for a smaller family...however, you probably will wish you hadn't because you will want leftovers!
Instant potato flakes makes these quick and fast --- instead of pinching off pieces of dough roll the dough into a 1/2-inch diameter rope and then slice into about 1-inch long pieces, you may indent the center with a fork or your finger --- the dough may be shaped covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated until ready to cook or you may freeze the shaped uncooked gnocchi just drop them into boiling water still in their frozen state, do not thaw --- this recipe was developed using instant potato flakes, subsitiuting cooked mashed potatoes will not produce the same results --- these are best if heated up in a tomato or cream sauce or pan fryed with garlic and butter then sprinkled with Parmesan cheese :)
This was a big winner in our work pot lucks,I was requested to bring it all the time and its easy easy to throw in a crock pot also. It may not be an Authentic Maidrite...but everyone who has tried them seem to agree they are pretty darn good.
Cabbage and meat mildly seasoned with garlic and onions in a creamy cheese sauce and topped with breadcrumbs for a pretty presentation! A real comfort food. Even those who say they HATE cabbage will eat this and like it! I have even made this without the meat- using bulgur and veggie broth. Here is how: Just replace the meat with the same amount of bulgur- (for 1 lb of meat sub 1 cup bulgur) you will want to soak the bulgur according to the instructions on the package- if you bought it in bulk here is how...
Bring 2 cups of veggie broth ( can use bouillon and water) per 1 cup bulgur
When broth is boiling stir in bulgur. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until bulgur is soft. All the broth should be absorbed. Fluff the bulgur with a fork as you would rice and add to your recipe.
I have used beef, pork, turkey and chicken with great results too.

Tired of using ground beef the same old way? Try this spicy dish! Feel free to double the sauce if you like it really saucy! Update: the hoisin sauce is quite sweet, so you might start off with just a little and work your way up!
