Burrito Bake

A friend of mine pinned this recipe on pinterest and as soon as I saw it I was off to the store to get the ingredients. It was very good and I don't think we had any leftovers.

1 lb ground beef
1 package taco seasoning 
(I made my own taco seasoning a while back)
10 ounce can refried beans
1 cup bisquick
1/4 cup water
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown and drain ground beef. Stir in taco seasoning. Mix beans, bisquick, and water together in a bowl. 

Spread bisquick mixture in a baking dish. Cover with meat. Top with cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Tortellini Chili

I loved that this recipe was easy to prepare and was pretty delicious. It had more of a soup consistency to it than chili, but it was still good.  AND it made me decide that next time I make my lasagna soup, instead of noodles I am going to use tortellini. YUM! 

1 lb. tortellini
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic
1 lb. ground beef
32 ounces chicken broth
15 oz can rotel
1 can red beans
1 can black beans
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Cook tortellini according to package directions.  Pour olive oil in a pan and add in onions and garlic. Saute for a few minutes.  Add ground beef and cook until browned. Drain beef and tortellini.  In a large pot mix meat, broth, tomatoes, beans, cumin, garlic salt, chili powder, salt and pepper. Stir in tortellini.  Heat for 10 minutes until hot.

Crock Pot Chicken Quesadillas

I haven't made quesadillas in a while. I had one of those fancy quesadilla maker things, but someone decided to make a cookie in it and when that didn't work out so well we had to throw it away. I don't know why I never thought to make them on the griddle, but it worked out well.

1 small cans green chilis, diced
12 oz jar salsa 
1 teaspoon ground cumin 
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken 
salt and pepper, to taste 
shredded cheese

Place chicken in crock pot. Place remaining ingredient (except cheese) on top. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. 

Once done cooking shred chicken.  Place tortillas on griddle and top with cheese and chicken mix. Top with another tortilla and flip to cook to your liking.
