Mexican Fiesta!

Salsa Rice bake
  • 1# hamburger browned
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1 can chili beans
Combine and simmer. Top with grated cheddar cheese. Serve with salsa and sour cream. ( this recipe works GREAT in the crock pot!) I double the recipe.

Chicken tacos

(this is how much I make for us +2)
  • 2 full (4 individual) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese
  1. Cook whole breasts alone until they are done enough to shred, or chop. (the Pampered Chef meat chopper works great for this)
  2. Add chopped onions and pepper. Cook to desired tenderness
  3. Drain liquid and add 1 cup water
  4. Add taco seasoning. (Our gang doesn't like stuff very spicy, so I only use one package, you may desire 2 packages of seasoning)
  5. Simmer
  6. Add cheese
Serve with black beans, tortillas, sour cream, salsa, tomatoes and lettuce.

Corn Cake
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 1/3 cup masa (corn flour)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped frozen corn
  • 1/4 cup corn meal
In separate bowl combine:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2T heavy cream (or milk)
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. baking powder

Bake in a 8"x8" pan @ 375 for 50-60 minutes
(technically you are supposed to set the smaller pan inside a 9x13 pan with water in it, but I just use my stone, or a glass pan and it turns out well) I double or triple this recipe

The chicken tacos are my fav when I go over there. The corn cake is great as well.
