DILL PICKLE CHEESE SPREAD
1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese - softened
1 C dill pickle relish or chopped dill pickles
1 - 2 oz. pkg. of chipped beef or ham*
A little garlic powder
After the cream cheese has softened, add chopped pickle (I used a 1/2 pint of homemade dill relish) and diced up meat. Give it a couple good shakes of garlic powder. Mix it all thoroughly and refrigerate. Let it set at room temperature for 1/2 hour or so before serving. Serve with crackers.
This is so good.
* you could leave out the meat if you don't have it - but it is a tasty add.
Large soft tortilla
I mixed together 1/2 lb. ground beef fried with taco seasoning added, 1/2 can (or equivalent homemade) refried beans and 1/2 C cooked rice for my filling this time.
It is probably different each time. Use whatever type of filling you want!
Lay your large tortilla down and place tostada shell in the center. **(I didn't have tostada shells this time and I used a taco shell broken in half in each one. Laid it to form a circular shell)
Add filling and/or cheese - then fold over the excess tortilla to cover everything. I used the George Foreman to toast lightly on both sides - do not squish (just let the lid lay on the top of wrap - you may need to turn so it all gets toasty).
You could use a waffle iron, quesadilla make, or a griddle. If using a griddle, place something slightly heavy on top to hold in place (closed up) - then turn it over and grill other side for a couple minutes.
Geesh - I hope that makes since!!!!!!
Better than Taco Bell - as you can put what you want in it. CUSTOM MADE!
This is a recipe my Mom used to make and it is still a favorite of ours today.
Make and fry large hamburger patties - then top with a can of condensed Vegetable Beef soup and 1/2 can of water. Let the meat simmer in the soup. Serve with mashed potatoes and use that soup and veggies as gravy.
If cooking for more than 2 people you would probably use 2 cans of soup.
This is so simple and a good hearty meal. We love it.
Sorry no picture!
Hope this gives you a new bite or two to try at your house.
Simple, frugal and yummy!
