Rice Stuffing

Want a different variety of stuffing?  This is very different, yet a good variation.  It has a great flavor and is very easy to make.  If you don’t want to cook it in the turkey, you don’t need to.  You can just bake it in a dish for 35-40 minutes.  Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

3 3/4 cup water

3 boxes of Uncle Ben Long Grain Wild Rice Butter & Herb

1/2 cup butter divided

1/2  cup Craisins

1 large apple, peeled and chopped

1/2 cup sliced almondstoasted (toast the almonds 10-12 minutes at 325, stirring occasionally)

Directions:

1)  In a large saucepan combine rice, season packets, 3 tablespoons of butter and cranberries and bring to a boil.

2)  Cover and reduce the heat to simmer for 25 minutes or until water is absorbed.

3)  Stir in the apple and almonds and set aside.

4)  Preheat oven to 325.

5)  Take the turkey and fill the cavity with the rice stuffing

6)  If there is any left over, place it in a separate pan and bake for 35-40 minutes.

7)  Follow instructions for baking the turkey.

This is very good!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

Good Friday to you!  Today is a beautiful, sunny day, though it is a bit cold out!  Today is one of those days that we have nothing scheduled!  I LOVE those days!  No ballet, no 4H meeting, no co-op…….just school at home!  It’s nice to have those types of days sprinkled in the week!  Next week we only have two days of school since it is Thanksgiving.  My daughter is in the Nutcracker next week so we will be busy going downtown to dress rehearsals all week, besides Monday, which is my oldest daughter’s 14th birthday.  It will be a fun, but busy week!  Today’s agenda for dinner is Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas.  I took my chicken breasts and put them on low in the crock pot last night so they would be ready to be marinated this morning.  I took them out of the crock pot, shredded them and put them in the marinade sauce for the afternoon.  Talk about easy!  Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
6 tbsp honey
5 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 lb chicken, cooked and shredded
10 tortillas
1lb cheese, shredded
16 oz enchilada sauce
1 cup heavy cream
Notes / Directions
Marinade:
6 tablespoons honey
5 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Directions:
Whisk the first four ingredients and toss with shredded chicken in a Zip-loc bag.Let it marinate in the fridge for at least a 1/2 hour, but preferably a half day or so.

Pour about 1/2 cup enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9X13 baking pan.

Fill the tortillas with chicken, saving marinade, and shredded cheese, saving about 1 cup of cheese to sprinkle on top of enchiladas.
Put rolled tortillas in 9×13 pan as you go.

Mix the remaining enchilada sauce with the cream and leftover marinade (if there is any). Pour sauce on top of the enchiladas.

Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until brown and crispy on top.

Enjoy your day!!  Remember to ‘Like” me on Facebook and pin anything on your Pinterest if you want!

Green Beans With Almonds and Bacon

My last post is the main dish (Oriental Noodle Toss with Black Beans) we will have for dinner this evening.  This is the vegetable we will have with it.  It is very easy and very good tasting!  My picky girls even enjoy it!

Here’s the recipe:

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sliced almonds
3 slices bacon, cooked
1/4 tsp garlic powder
to taste salt
Notes / Directions
1 pound green beans
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sliced almonds
3 slices of cooked bacon
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
salt to taste1 Snap off the tough ends and remove strings from green beans. Cut green beans in half.
2 In a large saucepan place green beans in 1″ of boiling water and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain.
3 Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add bacon, almonds, garlic powder, and salt and stir.
