A spicy jalapeno cream cheese spread, Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, and crunchy tortilla chips are sandwiched between buttery grilled ciabatta bread in this grown up version of the classic grilled cheese sandwich.
This salad is best served warm so all of the fabulous flavors can strut their stuff. The veggies are roasted for this salad and then combined with bow tie pasta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and a splash of olive oil.
A classic casserole made with ground beef combined with pasta and topped with mashed potatoes. Baked until bubbly and slightly browned. For extra garnish, sprinkle chopped parsley over the top. Instant mashed potatoes make preparation even faster.
This recipe was used by a chef I worked for and still enjoy feeding to my crew at home. This was served as a side dish for a Mardi Gras feast. You can also make this for vegetarian by omitting the bacon. A little of the favor is missing, but it still has a kick.
There's nothing fancy about the Tuna Ball, but it tastes great at parties and other get togethers. Chopped pecans give this blend of tuna, cream cheese and onion a light crunch. I love this appetizer with veggies, crackers and veggies.
You can't just go to any restaurant and get smothered chicken like you would if you went down to the urban neighborhoods in Houston. This meal of browned chicken in a savory chicken gravy sauce is best when served over a bed of white rice.
