Crunchwraps Similar to Taco Bell

Crunchwrap Similar to Taco Bell

Crunchwrap Similar to Taco Bell

I don’t often eat out at fast food restaurants but when I do I like to go to Taco Bell, and Crunchwrap Supremes are one of my favorites. So when I started seeing recipes for copycat Crunchwraps on Pinterest they definitely caught my eye. I tried one, and though it was close to Taco Bells, it wasn’t quite the flavor I was looking for so I started making a few changes and this is what I came up with. Though it’s close to the recipes I have seen, I did make a few changes. Mostly what I found is that it’s easy to adjust it to whatever your tastes are. I like to make mine with chicken, shredded mexican blend cheese and a little salsa verde, but I’m sure it would work just as well with whatever you want in it. So, here’s how I make mine.  I’d love to hear your comments on what you have tried and liked. Hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Salsa Chicken

I have seen this recipe on various sites and finally decided to give it a try. I’m really glad that I did! The chicken was moist and tender and the seasonings gave it a wonderful Mexican flavor. I used the Taco SeasoningII recipe posted on this site, which I make with a little less cayenne pepper than the recipe calls for as I don’t care for seasoning which is very spicy hot. That’s the nice thing about this recipe for Salsa Chicken, you can make it spicy or not, your preference, by the spices you use and the salsa you choose. I will definitely be making this chicken again, as not only was it tasty, it was also very very easy! I would love to hear your comments if you give it a try!

Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas

Chicken-Spinach-Enchiladas from Recipe Girl

 

This is another recipe from Recipe Girl that I’m anxious to try. The picture is from Recipe Girl also. When I have a chance to make the recipe I will be posting my own picture, but until then her picture will show you what it looks like – her picture is probably better than mine would be anyway, LOL! This recipe also looks to be quick and easy, one of my favorite requirements, as well as delicious – I love the idea of the spinach added to the filling. The only changes I will make when I prepare it is to add sliced black olives and onions to the chicken mixture. If you give this recipe a try I would love to hear your opinion on it!

Chalupas

I found this recipe at Recipe Girl which has now become one of my favorite recipe sites. She has tons of recipes listed and all of them look so good I don’t know where to start on trying them. These looked very simple and like they would work really well with homemade flour tortillas, and sometimes, especially during the summer, I just want something really quick and easy to make but that still tastes delicious. These qualify on all levels! You can get as fancy as you want with the toppings or eat them with just a little salsa and sour cream and either way they are quick, easy and taste wonderful!

Cheesy Taco Casserole

I saw this recipe on Averie Cooks  and decided to give it a try with a few minor changes. I’m really glad that I did. I was pleased with the flavor and with the ease of making it. The recipe suggested lining the baking dish with foil, which I did, and that made the clean up really easy also. So…..what’s not to like? The recipe has a rice base and no tortillas. Taco’s with no tortillas??? Well, the taco flavoring is so good I didn’t even miss the tortillas! If you like tacos, have a family to feed and need something easy to throw together, you really ought to give this a try!

Quick Chicken Parmesan

I’m sure that many of you, like me, prefer to do your cooking from scratch. But, we live in a fast paced world anymore and sometimes there just isn’t time to cook up a meal from scratch so I usually keep a few item in my pantry that can be used to put together a quick and delicious meal. This is one that I really enjoy and takes very little time. Hope that you enjoy it also.

Easy Bristo Chicken

I saw this recipe in my Kraft Foods newsletter and decided to give it a try. Overall I was pleased with the results and thought that it had a good flavor. I did add a little garlic and used sliced canned mushrooms instead of fresh as that was what I had in the pantry. The recipe makes a lot of sauce and when I make it again I think that I will serve it over pasta and then have the pasta and sauce leftover after the chicken is gone. It was simple and easy to make and I liked the idea of cooking it in one skillet though I think it would have worked well in a casserole over pasta also. I would love to hear your comments if you try it!

Amish Potluck Potato Casserole

This recipe is from the Homestyle Amish Cookbook, 2010. It’s a basic, simple casserole that isn’t low on flavor.  If you find the flavor is a little to basic for your tastes you can always add extra flavors like green onions, bell peppers, pimentos or spices. The corn flakes on the top are tasty but it’s also tasty made with crushed Ritz crackers instead of the corn flakes. Hope that you enjoy it!

Ravioli Taco Bake

I receive a newsletter from Recipe Lion and have found some of their posted recipes really good and some only so-so. They have a lot of copycat recipes listed for places like Cracker Barrel and many others and again some of them I have tried have been very good and very close to the original, some not so much. This recipe is one they had listed on their list of favorite casseroles for 2011. I haven’t tried it yet but it is so different that I have added to my list of “want to trys”. If you give it a go I would love to hear your response!

King Ranch Chicken
