Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful. Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Beef and Cheese Enchiladas (or just cheese)




Today I have a not-quite recipe for you. This is the easiest way I can think of to make shredded beef enchiladas. For the beef, you only need two ingredients. Simple!

You can use corn or flour tortillas, whichever is your preference. These go great with the Spanish Rice and Salsa Refried Beans. If you still have leftover beef after the two pans of food, save it and freeze. I had a particularly large cut of beef so I had extra, but you may not if you have a smaller roast.


Beef & Cheese Enchiladas (or just cheese)
Makes two 9x13-inch pans


Ingredients:

  • 3-4 lb. chuck roast, trimmed of fat and thawed
  • 1 extra large jug of salsa (I use about 30 ounces of a 50 ounce container, they are cheap at Walmart)
  • 1 large pkg. tortillas, enough for 2 pans of food
  • 1 large pkg. shredded cheddar cheese or cheddar mix (I bought an 8 cup bag and made 3 pans worth, and had a bit left over. I'd say buy an 8 cup bag, or two medium sized bags to be safe and have leftovers)
  • 1 large 20 oz. can of red enchilada sauce (I like Rosarita brand, be sure to shake the can up really well before opening)
  • optional garnish: guacamole, sour cream

Directions:

  1. To make the shredded beef: Lightly spray the crock pot dish with cooking spray. Add a bit of the salsa to the bottom of the crock pot. Add the roast on top, then top with the remaining salsa. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or high for 4. Remove from the crock pot to a cutting board. Let the meat rest for 10 minutes before shredding it. Shred then add back to salsa. (If you used a lot of extra salsa you may not want to add all of it back, use your best judgement)
  2. To assemble the enchiladas: Lightly spray two 9x13-inch baking dishes with cooking spray. Add a small amount of enchilada sauce to the bottom of each pan, just enough to cover it. Fill the tortillas with shredded beef and a good handful of shredded cheese. Roll up and repeat until finished. Top the finished pans of enchiladas with the remaining enchilada sauce. Add more cheese on top and bake, covered, at 350 for 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and the food is hot.

  1. I love enchiladas, and these looks cheesy and gooey.. Just delicious! I've never thought about cooking a roast to make a shredded beef filling but it sounds like something we would love!

    1. I hope you try it Leslie. It is really easy to make the roast when you just use salsa. Helpful when you have those kiddos running around ;)

Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious! You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!

Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.

Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Moist orange quick bread studded with cranberries. Make this one the day before you plan to eat it and let it sit out overnight (covered) for the best flavor. This is the classic Ocean Spray recipe, minus the nuts as the kids prefer it that way. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it. Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty. Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread takes a tropical twist on classic banana bread, using crushed pineapple and coconut. After receiving some feedback that the pineapple flavor was mild, I have added in optional pineapple extract.  For that matter, you could even add in coconut extract as well if you really want to punch up the flavor. I would probably try that out next time I made this, but if you try it before me please let me know how it turned out in the comments. If you were wondering what the black specks are in the bread, as a reader asked below, they are banana seeds. Next time you take a bite of banana, notice the small black seeds that run down the middle. Mystery solved!  Update 2016: I've noticed over the years that banana bread, more so than other breads, has a tendency to burn on the sides and bottom due to the long bake time. After researching how to fix this problem, silicone loaf pans seem to be the answer. I plan on ordering one soon and wi
