Chili pie

Its starting to get a little colder here…so why not make the cold weather comfort food…chili.

Well its a little twist on it. I made it into a pie.

What you’ll need:

1 lb ground beef

2 cans pinto beans

1 can kidney beans

1 can diced tomatoes

1 small onion diced

2 boxes corn bread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Brown the ground beef and onion…drain

While the meat is cooking mix one box of corn bread according to directions. Spread on the bottom of a baking dish

Once the meat is done…add the cans. Let simmer. You’ll also want to add seasonings. I added salt pepper and cayenne.

Once that is done pour on top of the corn bread.

Mix the other box of corn bread according to directions. Pour on top of chili.

Bake until corn bread is golden brown and enjoy 🙂

BBQ ranch chicken pasta

I am a huge fan of ranch, but my husband isn’t. Thats why whenever I wanna make something with ranch in it…I dont write it on the board correctly. Like this was just BBQ chicken pasta….I’m evil…I know. This actually made enough for 2 night of dinner because I accidentally picked up 2lbs of elbow noodles. Honest mistake but yay me. I get a night off.

What you will need:

1lb chicken cut into pieces and cooked

1lb elbow pasta…i used 2 lbs oh well

1 can sweet corn

1 can diced tomatoes

1 cup BBQ sauce

1/2 cup rance

Cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cook your chicken. I’m pretty flexible with recipes. If it calls for cooked chicken…then cook it however you want. Here I just threw it on the stove and let it cook that way. Sometimes I’ll bake it.

While you’re cooking the chicken…cook the pasta according to package.

While both these items are cooking (and by the way…season your chicken however you want) you will need to mix the BBQ and ranch together.

Next add the corn and tomatoes.

Finally add the chicken and pasta.

Place in a baking dish, cover with cheese.

bake for 20 to 30 minutes until cheese has that nice bubbly look.

BBQ Cheeseburger Casserole.

As you have probably figured by now, I am a sucker for a casserole. Especially with two kids, house work, errands and school work. Casseroles as well as dump and bakes are a blessing. This was actually really good….and simple. My picky eater ate all of it… then again she did want some of her trunk or treat candy….We have rules… haha.

What you’ll need:

1Lb ground beef

Onion (optional)

About 1/2 cup BBQ

About 1/4 cup Mustard ( I used honey mustard because I love it)

1 package crescent rolls.

1 to 2 cups cheese.

*I say about because I don’t usually use measurements. I eyeball all the measurements, taste it…if it needs more add it.

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F

Cook the ground beef and onion til no longer pink. Season it however you like.

While the beef is cooking, open the crescent rolls and place in a baking dish. spread it out to fit. Then bake until just barely golden and no longer gooey.

Once the beef is done, drain it. Add the BBQ and Mustard.

Then place on top of the crescent roll.

Add cheese!

Bake for about 20 to 30 minutes. Then ENJOY!
