    This chili spice combination is my son's favorite so I named it after him. When my kids were both little my daughter could not pronounce "Christopher" so she called her brother Ferfer. The name has stuck and now we call him Ferf for short. This recipe is a combination of a few different other recipes and the spice mixture is just right for us. This would probably make a great gift too.

    Recipe #411587

    I came up with this by accident. I was going to make an Orange Cream Cheese Pound Cake (inspired by Recipe#36041). I had 2 cake mixes on the table, an orange and a marble. I wasn't watching what I was doing and before I knew it I had dumped the yellow part of the marble mix in with the rest of the cream cheese, eggs, and ORANGE extract. Oh well. Oranges and Chocolate go great together, don't they? So I added the chocolate swir; and baked it. I glazed with softened canned chocolate frosting but any chocolate or orange glaze would probably be good too.

    Recipe #367893

    This is a family recipe from my husband's side. Little Dommy was his great-grandmother. Don't try to make this with Chinese take-out rice. For some reason it doesn't work as well. I've tried it before.

    Recipe #346076

    I'm posting this here for safe keeping as I have already misplaced this recipe at least 4 times. This is supposed to taste just like the creamed corn served at a popular BBQ restaurant in San Antonio, Texas called Rudy's. Since I've never eaten at Rudy's I cannot say for certain whether it does or doesn't taste like theirs. The directions that were provided were not very detailed.

    This is an easy and quick recipe that my Grandmother makes often. It's a long time family favorite. She likes to clip recipes out of the local newspaper so that's probably where this came from. My children, ages 6 and 7, love this dish.

    Recipe #246991

    I originally found this in Betty Crocker's Fix it Fast Family Favorites and adapted it for our tastes. DH doesn't do spicy so this version has about 1/2 the salsa called for in the original. You can skip frying the tortillas and steam them in the microwave if you'd prefer. I've made them both ways. They taste better if you fry them but it's quicker in the microwave and I imagine a little healthier as well.

    Recipe #243228

    Adapted from the recipe for Impossible Quesadilla Pie from a Bisquick grocery store flyer from the mid-80's. I used canned pre-chopped jalapenos from the grocery store but I'm sure it would be even better with fresh.

    Recipe #225043

    I just learned that this recipe originated with my great-uncle Nacho. It has been a tradition in my family for a very long time - definitely not health food, but it sure is good. My grandfather used to cook these on an old cast-iron griddle over open coals, frying the tortillas in the fat released by cooking the burgers, but lately we've taken to making these indoors and frying the tortillas in vegetable oil instead, which I guess makes it somewhat healthier. The pepper jack cheese is also a recent change. Originally they were made with cheddar or american cheese.

    This is adapted from "So Quick with New Bisquick" published in 1967. Mom was an avid Bisquick user and Heaven help me I just love the stuff. I actually only got 11 muffins from this recipe. My 7 year old loved these too.

    Recipe #208248

    It may not be gourmet, but it's easy and it's good. I got this recipe from the back of a bag of supermarket brand colby-jack shredded cheese. You can substitute an equal amount of cooked cubed or shredded chicken for the canned chicken if you prefer.

    Recipe #187170

    I clipped this from a coupon circular, probably about 10 years ago. It must be from Ragu because that's what kind of sauce it calls for. The original recipe can be dry so we serve it with either additional meat sauce or sauce with meatballs. Prep time includes cooking the pasta.

    Recipe #173394

    This recipe started out as the Lemon Blossoms from "Paula Deen & Friends" cookbook. I didn't have the lemon or lemon pudding called for so I improvised. A word of warning - do not try this with a hand mixer. The dough is unbelievably stiff and I nearly burned out the motor on mine. The finished cupcakes are light as a feather though. I was truly amazed that such a thick batter would bake up so light.

    My grandmother got this recipe from one of her great-nieces. It's really good and super-easy. We usually make it with yellow cake mix but I'm sure it would be equally good with chocolate. If you can find Cajeta Quemada (A goat's milk caramel made in Mexico-Coronado brand is best) you can substitute it for the caramel topping. Also if you can get Mexican vanilla that's best too. It has a very distinctive flavor. The ingredients for the cake are for a Betty Crocker cake mix. Use whatever ingredients and proportions your cake mix calls for.

    I orignally found this on (posted by M.Mauch). My grandmother was looking for an easy recipe for tres leches. This has become one of her most requested cakes. It's very rich, very moist, and very delicious. Serve it cold from the fridge or bring to room temperature before serving. Prep and Cooking times include waiting for the syrup to soak in and chilling the finished cake.

    Recipe #158517

    This recipe came from my great-grandmother. It's very similar to reposteria cookies that you can get in Mexican bakeries in San Antonio, Texas. We make them year round but they are especially nice at Christmas time. Use Crisco brand shortening for best results.

    Recipe #156036

    2 Reviews |  By Nanita

    This recipe is from "My First Cookbook" distributed by the Imperial Sugar Company in 1959. This is the way all my in-laws prepare devilled eggs. They're very good. Can easily be doubled or tripled as needed. Prep time does not include boiling the eggs.

    Recipe #154111

    This dish got it's name because we used to make it with Buffalo brand tomato paste. That brand is no longer available but we still make this dish. If you can get Kielbasa brand sausage where you live, use it. It's the best.

    We used to buy this salad in the deli of a local grocery store. This is just as good and much more economical! Cook time includes chilling time.

    Recipe #120720

    This bread pudding is a Lenten tradition in my family. If you can't find piloncillo where you live (you can buy it in any grocery store in San Antonio) you can substitute 3 cups of brown sugar for the 6 piloncillos (cones of unrefined sugar). Yes, onions and cheese in bread pudding does sound strange, but you'll be surprised at the overall taste of this dish. This is down-home Tex-Mex comfort food!

    My grandmother always made these. They make a great after-school snack or quick breakfast. They're even good for dessert.
