Easy Cheesy Chicken Taco Casserole with Kraft Pourables Dressing Recipe

cheesy chicken taco casserole pan #fooddeservesdelicious #shop

Since we moved to Texas, I've been feeling as if I need to up my ante when it comes to sauce recipes.  We've been busy familiarizing ourselves with our community and the local businesses, many of which happen to be taco restaurants.  I think in a 5-mile radius of our home there is one on every other corner (okay, I may be exaggerating a bit..but not much!).  The pickiest taste-buds this side of Jupiter live in my home though so I need to do a bit of improvising.  I'd love to make dishes that incorporate a sauce that has a 'Tex-Mex' flavor, but my family hears 'Tex-Mex' and runs for cover.

Beef Rouladen - It's What's For Dinner

Beef Rouladen with GravyBeef is a source of protein that we eat a lot of in our home.  While costs of beef have risen over the years, I stock up on sales or skimp on other things so that it fits into our budget.  I get a lot of ideas for dinner from  BeefitsWhatsForDinner.com, which is a Beef Checkoff program that their contractor The National Cattlemen's Beef Association manages.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew with Holland House Cooking Wine

You can give your foods a flavorful punch with a simple, yet flavorful marinade using Holland House Cooking Wines.  Veggies (especially eggplant, zucchini, asparagus and mushrooms) and meats soak up the flavor and it's as easy as letting them marinate and then tossing them on the grill!

Italian Stuffed Turkey Burgers - Summer Grilling with Red Gold

tomatoes-cheese-stuffed-deliciousnessI'm sure a lot of you are like me and don't like heating up your kitchen during the summer.  That means our grill gets quite the work out.

My family isn't very adventurous, they like the tried and true staples like beef burgers or hot dogs, but me I like to experiment with different ingredients and flavors.

Shells & Cheese with Chicken

Shells & Cheese with ChickenA few days ago, I was paging through a magazine and found an ad with a recipe for an Italian-Style Mac & Cheese with Chicken - since my husband is not a fan of sausage I figured I would substitute chicken breast in it instead, and I had everything else in my pantry and fridge to make it. (Well, almost.)

The creaminess of the cheese sauce was to be made from evaporated milk.  I assembled all my items, got ready to make the recipe and opened the can of evaporated milk..and it was weird.   Ewww it had expired (time to do a pantry clean out I guess!).

Cheesy Chicken Recipe and an eMeals Giveaway

cheesy chickenAs a lot of you know, I've been working with eMeals for about a year now and it's been a fantastic resource for our family.  Every week I get a shopping list and a week's worth of supper recipes.  We've been using the Walmart Family Classic plan for the last year, but I am seriously considering switching to the new Kid Friendly plan.  I know, I know we don't have any "kids" in our house anymore, but my husband...his tastedbuds are just like a kid's.  Ask me how many times he ends up ordering off the kid's menu when we cruise.  It's becomes a joke with our servers by the end of the week.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta

My family is crazy about pasta and we eat it a lot.  A lot, a lot.  So I'm always trying to find new ways to switch it up besides the regular red or white sauce.  After making this Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta the other day, it is now one of our favorites.  The grown up flavor profile of the cordon bleu has adults appreciating it, but it's kid friendly too.
