    Default Any good "Cheat Recipes" out there?

    I am looking for some great "cheat" recipes. They are the kind that only take a few ingredients and you often just need a soup packet or dip packet (etc) with as a vital ingredient. It's the kind of recipe that takes only a small amount of time, but everybody raves about it.

    Here is one:

    Stag Chilli Jacket Potato

    Microwave a large potato for about 4 mins on high. Make sure you poke some holes in it. Check to see if the potato is coooked. Then throw the potato in a moderately hot oven for about 10 mins to make it all crispy.

    While that's happening, get a can of stag chilli and microwave it in a dish for about 60-90 seconds.

    When potato is done, remove it and cut it in the middle like a cross. Use butter, parmeson cheese and then add the stag chilli with sour cream on top. Use cheese on top of that if you like. Then - you're done!

    I don't know if this counts but my friends and family love this recipe and it is quick and easy:

    Ranch Chicken

    Mix 3/4 cup parmesan cheese, 2 cups crushed corn flakes, and 1 package Hidden Valley dry ranch dressing mix. Dip chicken in melted butter, roll in corn flake mixture. Bake at 350 for 40 mins.

    My cheat is instant Thai curry.

    1. Put on the rice (1 cup rice, two cups water, bring to boil, stir, turn to low, cover and let sit 20 minutes)

    2. Haul out a can or two of red or green Thai curry (Arroy-D is a brand I can usually find in the grocery store or at the Wal-Mart) or a can of the curry plus a can of cocoanut milk. It's flexible.

    3. Chuck in frozen or fresh veggies(mushrooms, bamboo shoots, thin strips of carrot, red pepper, green pepper, etc or half a bag mixed Thai or oriental frozen veg) and diced tofu or precooked chicken strips or shrimp.

    4. heat, serve etc

    I like to use the slow cooker. The easiest cheat recipe is to get a 18-20 oz bottle of BBQ sauce, layer the bottom with some of it, throw in some chicken or pork chops, then pour the rest of the sauce over it.

    You cook it for 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low depending on how much meat you have in the cooker.

    EASY and it's good!!

    Chicken wraps:

    Buy a fully baked chicken. De-bone and chop up the whole thing. Place in a large mixing bowl, add 16 oz. sour cream, 2 cups shredded cheese, and two teaspoons (or more if desired) diced jalepenos. Mix well. Wrap in 12 inch tortillas and place folded side down in a baking pan. Top with shredded cheese and diced tomatoes. Bake on about 350 for 45 minutes. Top with sour cream before serving, if desired.

    Breaded chicken breasts (YUMMY):

    2 cups of French's Fried onions
    2 tablespoons Flour
    1 egg
    4 chicken breasts thawed (you can sub dark meat)

    -Crumble the French's Fried onions and combine them with flour.

    -Beat egg and pour on plate for dipping.

    -Dip chicken breast into egg, then dip into onion/flour mix to coat.

    -Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.

    That's it! It takes like 5 minutes to prepare and is one of the best chicken meals I make at home.

    Super easy and filling! (and fattening, but whatever...)

    Velveeta Dip
    1 large block Velveeta (either with peppers or plain)
    1 pound ground chuck
    Milk
    1 can Hot (or mild, I prefer the hot) Rotel
    1 Large bag of tortilla chips (whichever brand you prefer)

    Brown the hamburger in a medium to large size pot and drain well. Chop up the Velveeta into smaller blocks and add just a splash (a splash! not too much!) of milk.

    Let it melt down a little, then add the can of Rotel. Stir until well mixed and let it heat up good for about 15-20 minutes.

    Serve over or beside tortilla chips! Great for a snack or even a dinner. It's really delicious. Some folks even add sausage to it, but to me the sausage (ground) overwhelms the taste.

    Not expensive, and very good comfort food. We use it for a dip during football game-time!
