My sweetie's mom and I had the same idea for dinner last night, so I put my dinner on the back burner so I could enjoy her delicious goulash. For tonight's dinner, I needed to use the ingredients I had planned to use for my goulash the previous night. However I wanted to mix up the flavor so we wouldn't be having essentially the same dish two nights in a row. And thus...a recipe was born!
Note that using a tri-color mix of peppers makes the dish just beautiful!
These are ridiculously easy and yummy. Great for taking to a large gathering. These are ALWAYS a hit! You can stretch this to make 18 tarts by just putting a little less cheesecake filling in each cup, and of course using 3 more Oreos! These make for a gorgeous presentation!
So good on a chilly evening, served with homemade cornbread. I usually make this in the crockpot, but you can make it on the stove too. I've also added hominy to this and it's a terrific addition. In a pinch you can use canned chicken too.
This isn't really a recipe, since there is NO cooking required, but it's delicious nonetheless. I use Newman's Own brand fruit salsa in either mango, peach or pineapple. Scrumptious. Costo also sells a fabulous mango-peach salsa that works beautifully for this recipe.
This is a great way to use up leftover turkey! I use freshly sauteed onion if I have fresh onions on hand, as well as fresh mushrooms in place of the canned ones (and because I LOVE mushrooms, I use two cans when I'm cooking for me!). I've also made this with 1/2 c of frozen green peas, but I was out of those (as well as fresh ingredients like onions and mushrooms!) and it was just as tasty without it. Garlic bread and a green salad round out this meal nicely.
I originally saw this recipe on Kevin&Amanda.com. I tweaked it slightly and it is fabulous! It reheats well too. You can use just about any shape pasta you like: penne, shells, armoniche, wagon wheels, farfelle, or my favorite, tri-colored campanelle. I used turkey sausage for this and it was fantastic.For those to an aversion to ANYTHING spicy, you could easily substitute petite diced tomatoes for the Rotel.
I absolutely love the flavors in guacamole, so I thought I'd try to find a way to use all the flavors in a different way. This recipe served two, but it would be easy to adapt to a larger crowd. I topped mine with sliced grilled chicken, but I think I'm going to try grilled shrimp next time.
This is so simple it's almost unbelievable! You can also use diet soda and fat free whipped topping to lower the calorie count. I also make this with a pineapple cake mix and my boyfriend goes gaga for it!
