Winterfest is here. If you're like us, you're going to want to be clicking away...but what about dinner? The staff of WI
had some fun collecting quick easy meals that we could prepare quickly while we were busy clicking on snowflakes. We had so much fun gathering up these recipes that we thought we'd share them with you. Enjoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~ Princesstiara's Easy Beeftips
In your crockpot dump the following:
- 1 1/2 lb already cut up tenderloin beef tips
- 1 already chopped onion (frozen is great)
- 1 can mushrooms stems & pieces
- 1 envelope beef & mushroom Lipton soup
- 1 can of low fat mushroom soup
- can of water or so
cook on low until you are ready to eat (at least 6 hours)
If you don't have a crockpot, dump it in a pot on the stove bring to a boil, then cook it on low for an hour or so.
We eat it over macaroni or rice, Everyone will think you are a genius because it is SO good! ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mom2tc Easy Chili
Crockpot 6-8 hours, the longer, the better:
- 2.5 pounds ground turkey
- 2 cans Bush's chili beans - 15 oz. size
- 1 jar salsa - 24 oz.
- 2 packets of mid chili seasoning
The kids like it over spagetti. For Dan, I usually sprinkle shredded cheese, Mexican variety and crumple crackers on top with some chopped onion and a spoonful of sour cream. You'd think I slaved all day by the compliments I get from them. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ FIA's Taco Salad
My favorite quick dish that everyone will eat is "Taco Salad".
- 1lb ground meat
- 1 large bag of salad
- 1 bag of Doritoes
- 1 bottle 1000 Island Dressing
- 1 pkg of taco seasoning
- 1 bag shredded cheese
Crunch up the Doritoes and mix them with the salad in a large bowl. Brown the meat, drain. Add the taco seasoning to the meat. Mix the meat with the salad and Doritoes. Top with 1000 Island dressing. Add shredded cheese or any other "tacoish" toppings you desire.
Only mix the amount you want to eat at that sitting because it doesn't keep. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ MommaB's Chili
mine sounds hard but is easy chilli:
in 3 quart pot :
- 1 can tomato paste
- half a cube of baker's chocolate [ yes Lark, chocolate lol]
- 1 cup of chicken broth. [ i make my own from the cubes]
mix it up and let it heat up on a low setting,
add in these seasonings: chilli, garlic powder, white pepper, [blk is fine if you have that] some basil, parsely and oragano.. mix up.
add in your beans, I use [organic] black beans, small white navy beans, kidney beans, romans what ever i have on hand, and usually I use two cans.
then I brown up ground turkey, seasoned with wht pepper, and cumin, and I keep adding in the cumin little by little.
once that is done, I add it to the chilli mix , along with green peppers and chopped up onion,
add more cumin.. Oh add salt if you wish, I never cook with it.
stir together, cover and let simmer ...
serve with tortilla chips, shredded cheese, sour cream.. yum! ~~~~~~~~~~~~ mom2hnemi Easy Mexican Casserole
- 1 lb Hamburger Meat
- Bag of Tortilla Chips OR good with Doritos too
- Shredded Cheese
- 1 Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 1 Can of Cheese Soup
- 1 Can of Green Chilis
Brown and Drain Hamburger Meat, turn off heat, mix in mushroom soup, cheese soup and chilis. In a 9x11 casserole dish, make a layer of crushed tortilla chips..then layer with hamburger mixture, layer with shredded cheese..repeat all three layers..and add extra cheese and tortilla chips on top.
Cook for 20-25 minutes at 375 degrees ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Fireflyblue's Kielbasa Soup
- 16 oz package frozen vegetables (or your choice of veggies)
- 6 oz can tomato paste
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 3 medium potatoes, diced
- 1 1/2 lbs kielbasa (polish sausage), cut into 1/4" pieces
- 4 qts water
- fresh parsley (for garnish)
Combine all (except parsley), cook on Low for 12 hours. Garnish and serve.
(This is for a really big crockpot.)
I don't usually garnish or use a whole 4 quarts of water, and I sure don't cook it 12 hours, 6 or 8 seems to be plenty. And we just toss in whatever ingredients we have that are close. But it's yummmmmmy.
It's in the Fix It And Forget It cookbook. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Karen's Cheesy Chicken and Rice
Rinse chicken and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix undiluted soup and pour over chicken in a slow cooker. Add rice. Cook on low 8 hours. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ AuntKinz Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

- 1 cn Cheddar cheese soup
- 1 1/2 c Rice
- 2 eggs

- 1 box Duncan Hines Devil's food cake mix
- 6oz bag semi sweet chocolate chips
