Tempt My Tummy Tuesday

Tempt my Tummy Tuesdays

I love Crock Pot Meals. I may have to find more recipes or a cook book or something
but my friend shared this one I want to try
Chicken and Dumplings:

1 1/2 pounds of chicken (whatever you have)
2 medium potatoes diced 
2 cups baby whole carrots 
1 medium onion
5 cups chicken broth
2 cups biscuit mix
1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons parsley

place chicken potatoes onion and carrots into slow cooker.
add broth and let cook for 9- 10 hours on low heat setting
About an hour before done increase heat setting to high.
Stir together biscuit mix with water and parsley in bowl.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto hot chicken mixture in slow cooker.
Cover and cook for the last hour or until dumplings are dry in center.

PREP Time: 10 mintues
Cook Time: 9-10 hours
Serving: 5 people

P.S. I also like to season the chicken with a little bit of salt and pepper and italian seasoning.

Taco Lasagna

You will need 1 lb Lean Ground Beef, Taco Seasoning, Tortillia's, Shredded cheese and or Cheese Sauce, and toppings as desired and refried beans if desired

We buy the Tomato Trinity Mix or the Pico Da Gallo Mix depending on the supermarket we shop at. We put shredded Mexi blend between layers and cheese sauce on top.

1. Cook a great Filling
Heat oven to 350°F Brown ground beef in 10-inch skilet, drain. Stir in Water and Seasoning Mix, Heat to boiling. Reduce Heat, simmer uncovered 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently until thickened.

2. Assemble the layers
Place 1 tortilla in the bottom of ungreased 9 inch glass casserole dish or metal pie pan. Spoon over ½ cup of beef filling onto the tortilla, spread evenly to edges. Repeat layers, ending with beef filling. **At this point you can use shredded cheese or cheese sauce (whatever you prefer) and add a layer. You can also add a Tomato Trinity Mix or Pica Da Gallo mix between layers and/or the refried beans. You can add several layers repeating this step until you have your desired amount (usually about 4)

3. Bake it Up
Bake uncovered about  15 minutes or until heated through. Top as Desired. Serve with a side of salsa for added zing :)
