Taco's are such an easy meal to throw together in a hurry.  I usually cook several boneless, skinless chicken breast at a time and freeze them for later use.  With the chicken already cooked, these can be ready in a pinch.  The chicken is a healthy alternative to traditional beef taco's.  Can be made with soft flour tortilla's as well.

Made with greek yogurt cream cheese, this spread provided all the flavor of jalapeno poppers without all the work or calories. I served it on crackers and the butter flavor of the cracker complimented the spread perfectly.

The rotel tomatoes with green chilies add just the right amount of kick.  Combined with with black olives and chicken, the greek yogurt cream cheese ties it all together.  The best part of it all, it's very low in fat creating a healthier creamy chicken enchilada.  They tasted a lot better than they looked!

A very tasty one dish meal.  This would be great to take to a potluck as you could make a very large pan of them at once.  The chicken was tender and juicy and onions and peppers were cooked perfectly with just enough spice.

I've seen several versions of corn salad, this is mine from what I had on hand.  Apparently I have been stock piling these big bags of corn.  I couldn't think of a better way to use them up, than a Memorial Day Weekend BBQ.

I've been making these since my kids were little.  They are a lot easier to eat than the hard shelled tacos and not as messy.  One pound of ground beef goes a long way when making these tacos.

I'm pretty sure Paula Deen and I have the same palate, I just wish I had her imagination and skills.  This corn casserole was so yummy!  I added the green chiles and only used 1/2 of the cheese and creamed corn that it called for.  I also substituted the sour cream with greek no-fat yogurt (my new love).  I will definitely be making this again.

Today is National Empanada Day. I had already posted a recipe for Chicken Empanadas quite a while back. I had some left over barbequed pork ribs and really didn't want to use rice so I used the sweet potato instead. You could really make these with whatever meat you have on hand, using rice or potatoes as a filler.
