What's For Dinner: Part 2

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone:

 

I really miss this thread and it's been buried, so I thought I'd start a new one. I know I'm not a fancy cook or anything like our Scott is, but I have a recent appreciation and love for cooking. My friends get cranky when I post food pictures on Facebook, so I thought I'd post them here instead!

 

Here is my meal from tonight. Not the greatest picture, but I made crockpot chicken using a bunch of seasonings and fresh garlic, rice, steamed broccoli, and Steve made me some mushroom gravy. I'm using the leftover chicken to make homemade chicken and rice soup.

I've never had taco soup?  But anything with the word "taco" sounds yummy to me :)

I was going to grill some ribs today but time got away from me and it never happened. So I decided to have leftover Cuban black bean soup and blue corn nachos instead. Such a let-down (NOT!  :) )

Chrys and Nancy, both sound delicious! I made crockpot chili and Steve made garlic bread.

Here is the recipe...I double it so I will have several meals to freeze, and instead of using all the same beans, I get four different kinds...so easy and really good...

 

Taco Soup

 

1 pound lean ground beef

1 small onion, chopped

2 cans Rotel (chopped green chilies and tomatoes)

1 ½ cups water

2 15 oz. cans kidney beans

1 8 oz. can tomato sauce

1 pkg. taco seasoning mix

1 pkg. dry ranch dressing mix

1 can mexicorn

 

Shredded cheese,optional

Sour cream.optional

Tortilla chips, optional

 

Brown meat with onions.  Drain.  Add remaining ingredients

and simmer about 15 minutes.  Serve with optional ingredients.

Aww, thanks Scott! He seemed to really like this meal and he loved the chili last night. I'm pretty sure he ate a bowl for breakfast, haha.
