To get us started:

Mexican soft tacos:

1 16 oz jar of salsa (pick the kind you like).
1 can of chicken broth

mix together in a pot and bring to a boil.

Add 2 cups of rice, turn down heat, and cook until broth is absorbed or boils off. Stir periodically.

Put rice mixture into tortilla shells, add shredded cheese and enjoy.


If you want a little more substance and have the time, you can add cooked chicken portions into the rice mixture.

Idea #2 - this takes a little longer than the half hour unless you put into the crock pot and let it go all day.

1 can whole cranberries
1 package onion soup mix
1 8 oz bottle of western dressing.

Mix those three ingredients in your crock pot.

Add six to eight deboned and skinned chicken breasts.


If not using the crock pot, bake covered for one hour, then uncovered for a half hour.

so how much water do we put in the pot?

and is the rice already cooked or will it be cooked when put in the pot?

Stir fry
Look in the fridge, see what's there. Slice what's there up pretty thin. You can even do carrots if you grate them. Before you start slicing, throw some oil in a pan and turn it up a little above medium. By the time everything is sliced, the pan should be ready. If you want, throw in some garlic powder now. Start tossing stuff in, slowest cooking first. Say if you've got celery, squash, meat and onion, put them in in that order. Keep stirring it with a wooden spoon or anything you've got. When it looks and smells good, scoop it into a bowl, throw salt, pepper, soy sauce, whatever you like on it and eat it. If it's cold, give the bowl (s) a minute on high in the microjive before you put the food in.

No water - the chicken broth takes care of cooking the rice in the mixture. It really is as simple as it sounds.

Cook & drain the hamburger
Add the seasoning packet & water, cook off the water
Line a baking sheet pan with aluminum foil
Spread one bag of chips on the pan
Spread half of the meat and cheese on the chips
Spread the other bag of chips on the pan
Spread the other half of the meat and cheese on the chips
Bake at 350 until the cheese melts
Pour salsa over the melted cheese
Put dollops of guacamole & sour cream all over the salsa

Set out plates, grab a beer & enjoy

Chicken
rice
cream of chicken soup
water
salt & pepper to taste

Put it all in a glass baking dish and bake at about 350 degrees it until it looks done (30-45 minutes for boneless chicken, maybe longer if it has bones). I don't know the amounts... just put stuff in until it looks about right. Should be one can of soup, about 1 1/2 cups of water, and maybe a cup of uncooked rice. If it doesn't turn out quite right, try using more or less of something next time. Hard to screw up.
