Taco Soup..It's so so yummy and hella easy and quick..
2 cans red kidney beans
2 cans corn
1 large can of diced tomatos ( if you want it really spicy or to have onions or peppers you can use a can of rotel)
1 16 oz can tomato sauce or two 8oz cans
1 lb of ground beef
2 packets of taco seasoning mix
okay so the hardest thing in this recipe is literally browning the meat lol
pour all the canned items in a large pot dont drain though you need the juice from the veggies to create the soupiness
brown and drain beef and add it to veggies in pot
bring to a boil and stir in taco seasoning mix and salt and pepper to taste
and thats it..turn that sucker on low and let it cook until you're ready to eat..I leave mine about 20 minutes or so just so the beans are soft.
We serve it over fritos and top with shredded cheddar and sour cream
i love supercook.com. you put in what you have in the pantry and it tells you what recipies fit. i do this before grocery shopping when i have a hodge-podge of stuff and no idea how to put it together.
a couple of tried and trues for the crock pot at my house are:
4 chicken breasts, about a cup of water, and some salt. let it get about half way done so eveyone fits nice and smother in BBQ sauce. let it simmer till chicken is cooked through. soetime i will then 'shred' it for sandwiches for the next day too.
cut your chicken up, all your veggies (i use carrots, celery, onion, and a little garlic) and put them in the crock. fill with water till every one is covered and you have a little space at the top. add salt and pepper. let cook about 4 hrs, add some parsly ad serve w/ bread.
roast -beef or pork
put your roast in (frozen or thawed) and cube potatos, carrots, and oions (i do atleast 3 b/c they cook down so much). add 2 cups of water. i the put salt peper onion and garlic powder and a pinch of peparika on the meat. depending on the size of your roast you can be done in as little as 3 hrs
I love quick dinners! Thanks! Here are a few of my favs:
6-8 thin boneless pork chops
1 large onion
2 to 3 potatoes
1 bell pepper
Place pork chops in a 9x13 glass casserole dish.
Season the pork chops with salt/pepper, sprinkle some worchestershire(sp) sauce on the pork chops. Then slice the onion/pepper/potatoes and place them on top of the pork chops. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 mins. Then I take the foil off and just let it brown for a few mins, usually I'll throw in some canned biscuits while doing this. You can serve with some frozen corn on cob or with a salad or just with the bread/biscuits.
crock pot chicken
take one whole chicken and throw it in the crockpot. I put about 1/2 stick of butter in the cavity and some salt/pepper and seasoned salt, you can use whatever spices you like . Then I pour some coke or chicken broth in the crockpot for moisture and cook it on low most of the day. Serve with rice, salad, bread or frozen veggies.
We also love "pigs n' blankets" once in awhile for a quick dinner. Just take some cresent rolls and roll those hot dogs up and bake at 375 for about 10-15 mins, until cresent roll is done. I serve it with box mac n' cheese and chips/fries. Not the healthiest but it's good and quick and the kids love it. :)
I make Tomato Basil Pork
4-5 boneless pork chops cut into cubes
1 can tomato basil soup (Progresso makes an awesome one)
1 medium onion
1 medium bell pepper
Saute bell pepper, onion, and pork till pork is cooked through. Add tomato basil soup. Let it come to a bubble. Pour it over cooked rice. Done
For dessert you can do an old family recipe of ours called One Cup Peach Cobbler
1 cup flour
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 can of peaches
Melt the butter, mix all ingredients, bake at 400 till golden brown.
You can substitue pretty much any canned fruit for the peaches to add variety. Cherries or any kind of berry is really yummy too.
