If you want a good twist on the Taco salad...instead of using Thousand Island Dressing try Catalina or French Dressing. It's smoothe, that's how I make mine. I've never personally tried it with thousand Island myself, and I certainly wouldn't knock it till I tried it...Oh well...thanks for the Recipes...I just made my kids spaghetti and quick sauce. lol

How about this one:

2 slices of bread
1 jar of peanut butter

Take a plastic knife and apply peanut butter to one slice of bread. Proceed to put the other slice of bread on top of first piece. Put concoction on a paper plate. Serve. Throw away trash and no dishes at all. And while the kids are eating you can be catching snowflakes. That is if you can beat your wife to the computer.

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!

The Ducky's Foil-Pack Taco Chicken

The Ducky's Corned Beef Casserole

COWS4YOU Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing

*Please note: In the event that snowflakes on your account float by every two minutes, our suggestion would be delivery pizza, some other take-out or prepared meals from your freezer.



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
  • 2 boneless, skinless white meat chicken fillets or 4 thighs
  • Garlic powder
  • 2 cn Cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cn Cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 1/2 c 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
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 box Duncan Hines Devil's food cake mix
  • 6oz bag semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven 350o, Blend first 3 ingredients well, fold in chips, spoon onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes

A variation, which I did tonight was use a yellow cake mix instead of the devil's food.
great idea:goo::koala::cs::rac::goo::ccat::beagle :I might try one of your recipes
