  1. WOWIE!! EXCELLANTE! So creamy! Definitely make again. Used only 1 can green chilies and 1 tsp chili powder and it was perfect for us.But will have to give it a try with both cans of chili when the kids aren't dining with us. Thanks for a great side dish.
  2. wounderful this has a nice kick to it,just right not to hot we all loved it and will make it again
  3. Oh my goodness, this is so yummy! Tastes like something you'd eat in a restaurant. This will become a staple of mine. I'd double or triple it (13x9 pan) for an easy potluck contribution. I used 2 tsp of chili powder but would probably use only 1 tsp to serve to a crowd.
  4. This was really good. However, I did not have 2 cans of green chilis. I had only 1 can of Ro-Tell and used that. Otherwise, really yummy. I added salt and pepper since the recipe did not call for any. I will definitely make it again.
  5. I tried it and this was delicious! Tangy, spicy, creamy, cheezy YUM! I added some fajita beef to it and used 2 tsp chili powder and 1 can of chilis. I also used brown rice. Definitely will be making this often! Thanks for sharing.


<p>Life often interupts our comfortable routines in very unexpected ways and in the past three years I've certainly faced some challenges.&nbsp; As a health nut who ate mostly vegetarian I was beyond shocked to discover that I was diabetic.&nbsp;<img title=Yell src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif border=0 alt=Yell /> I shouted and rebelled and cried.&nbsp; But the good news is that I can control my glucose levels simply by eating very low carb.&nbsp; What a complete turn around it was to&nbsp;pass up&nbsp;all my high carb vegetarian foods like grains, and veggies and embrace meat!&nbsp;<img title=Surprised src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-surprised.gif border=0 alt=Surprised /> I've adjusted to this limited diet and thanks to Zaar can eat a nice variety of healthful meals.</p> <p>&nbsp;The next challenge was a freakish fall I took while in New York with my daughter that left me paralyzed and in much pain. I thank God that I am so much better today after more than two years recovery, with total mobility and just some minor pain in my arms and hands.&nbsp; Cooking and communicating here was not really on my priority list.&nbsp; But, I am back in action and ready to cook, take photos, and enjoy this wonderful community of friends.<img title=Laughing src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif border=0 alt=Laughing /></p> <p>My husband and I continue to enjoy our grandchildren and being closely involved with their day to day activities.&nbsp; I am also the proud owner of a sweet grey and white cat who came to my door as a little kitten 6 months ago.&nbsp; Her name is Bonny and you can read her story here:&nbsp; <a href= target=_blank></a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;When I have time for myself, I love to do all things artistic...drawing, pastels, paper craft, scrapbooking, and most recently jewelry making.&nbsp; I have set up a website on ETSY ( shown on this page by my website)and you can go there and see my creations.<img title=Cool src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cool.gif border=0 alt=Cool /><br /><br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /></p>
