Bacon Cheeseburger Dip January 10, 2014

1389384272121

We loved the Cheeseburger soup, (and you did too!) so I decided to go one step further and make a dip out of it. I found a recipe on Pinterest and I changed it up a little bit, once again, to make a delicious version we all loved. We couldn’t stop eating it! We were making the dip and Nachos, and we got filled up on the dip before we even got the Nachos in the oven! We think this dip is perfect for Sunday’s watching football and a perfect appetizer for parties!

Hot Cheesy Reuben Dip February 21, 2013

DSC_0236

I have a serious soft spot for Reubens. I’m not sure why, because I think sauerkraut is disgusting and I’m not a huge fan of thousand island either, but this dip and Reuben sandwiches are my favorite! I don’t even like Swiss cheese…now that I think about it, it’s quite odd that I like these! When my parents owned the restaurant they would get bored of the same old same old and go through phases of different types of foods. At one point, they were making every kind of egg roll they could think of. They made chocolate chip cookie dough egg rolls, ice cream egg rolls, cheese cake egg rolls, s’more egg rolls, and every other thing they could find to put in them. I loved it when they went through these phases. After the egg rolls, they went through the ‘dip’ phase…YUM. Clearly, one of them stuck. Every thing you could throw into a dip went and it was never disappointing. The Reuben dip was by far the favorite between the employees and we started requesting it on a regular basis, then they added it as a special and it sold like crazy! It’s so cheesy and amazingly delicious, I just love it! Now, I kind of decided this on a whim when looking for my Juicy and Delicious Lemon Chicken Piccata recipe, so I didn’t have time to boil the corned beef, so instead, I just bought two large slices of corned beef from the deli and chopped them up very small. This worked out well, however, the recipe calls for shredded corned beef and I would recommend sticking to that because it mixes in together much easier, whereas this was just chunks throughout. The best part about this? The leftovers made a delicious Reuben sandwich today for lunch!

The Best Nachos On The Planet February 3, 2013

DSC_0016

These are the most delicious nachos I have ever had. There is a long lived family secret, and I have never met anybody who disagreed. My friends always say these are my “secret awesome nachos” and I am constantly being begged for the secret. It’s really not much of a secret, it’s just an unconventional, yet amazing, use of two ingredients. I made these for the Super Bowl Party, and EVERYBODY raved!  At the restaurant when I was younger all the customers would order the ‘famous’ nachos. It’s called Jalapeno Cream Cheese. The greatest invention ever known to man. First I will give the recipe for that, very easy and quick, and then I will tell you how to put together these amazing nachos!

Jalapeno Cream Cheese

1 8oz package of Cream Cheese

I bottle Diced Jalapenos

In a food processor, add entire package of cream cheese, and jalapenos and juice. The amount depends on how spicy you want it. Add just a little at first, and then taste it. Keep adding until you reach a good level of spicy. I like it really spicy, so I usually put about a half bottle of diced jalapenos and then tablespoon at a time of liquid until it is blended. If you do not have a food processor, (which I didn’t until this Christmas…THANK YOU ANDREW MY DARLING!!!!) you can chop the jalapenos as finely as possible and mix by hand or with a hand mixer or stand mixer. It takes a little more time and elbow grease, but still comes out great. Spoon into piping bag or plastic baggie with a hole in the corner for squirting.

Delicious Chicken Nachos

1 Package Boneless Skinless Chicken

1 Bag Shredded Cheese

1 Can Black Beans

1 Bottle Corn and Black Bean Salsa

1 Bag Jalapeno Cream Cheese

1 Bag Tortilla Chips

Lay chips out flat on baking pan, preheat oven to 375º. Squirt jalapeno cream cheese all over chips, spread salsa evenly on chips, and sprinkle rinsed black beans over salsa. Then, cover with cheese, cook chicken in pan with salt and pepper and chopped into small chunks. Sprinkle chicken all over nachos, sprinkle small amount of cheese on top, bake until cheese is melted.

The jalapeno cream cheese seriously makes these the most amazing things you will ever taste…feel free to substitute chicken for any type of meat or no meat, add more or less beans or corn, increase or decrease salsa and cream cheese amounts. I like a lot of everything, but my husband likes less of everything so I usually do half and half. Good luck!

Enjoy!!
