CHICKEN ENCHILADAS - Cook up some onions, garlic, add chicken and cook (season with cayenne pepper, chili powder, cumin, paprika, onion and garlic powder, salt and pepper) with a few minutes left of cooking add Mexican style canned chopped tomatoes.Once chicken is cooked shred it, mix with cooked vegetables and add a small can of chopped green chilies, (and jalapenos if you like spice). Take a tortilla (put in microwave to make them soft and easy to roll) and layer of cream cheese, layer a some refried beans, chicken veg mix, roll. In a casserole dish spread some enchilada sauce on the bottom, place rolled enchiladas on top, then coat with more enchilada sauce and cover with Mexican cheese. (Bake for 15 minutes) Top with fresh cilantro, sour cream, and avocado!(And for my Keto, Low Carb and Gluten Free friends you can take a zucchini and slice, put all the stuff inside and roll and just bake a little longer.)

SAUSAGE WITH SWEET POTATOES AND PEPPERS – Chop up sweet potatoes, red, green peppers and onions.In a bowl mix your seasonings cumin, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Coat your veggies in olive oil and then coat with the seasoning.Score your sausages (hot or sweet). Put your vegetables all around the sausage on a cookie sheet.Bake for 40 minutes or so at 400 degrees.(You can tell when the potatoes are soft) (I use hot sausage and like spice so I coat my veggies in cayenne pepper too).

BEEF AND BROCOLI WITH BEEF RICE – In a bowl mix beef broth, sherry, soy sauce, brown sugar, some minced garlic and cornstarch, set aside.In my wok I put some Stir Fry/Wok Oil and put in some chopped broccoli, with minced garlic and green onions. Once they are crisp but tender remove and set aside.In the pan cook up your steak (strips cut thick).Once it’s done, add the broccoli and your sauce. Cook until sauce is thickened serve with brown rice or Beef Rice a Roni.

STEAK AND CHEESE SUBS OR LOW CARB FRIENDLY STEAK AND CHEESE PORTABELLAS – Season your shaved steak (salt, pepper, garlic powder), cook in a skillet with chopped sweet onion.Once it’s cooked, I add a couple of tablespoons of the jarred cheese dip (don’t judge it adds a creamy flavor). Grill up some peppers for added vegs and then I usually scoop in a roll and put my favorite cheese on top (you can use provolone, American, whatever you like!), broil in the oven until cheese is melted and bread is toasted.Or for the portabella mushrooms: mix soy sauce, minced garlic, balsamic vinegar and a little ginger and olive oil. Take your portabella caps and put in your soy sauce mixture for 10 minutes or so and then pop in the oven for 15 minutes.Remove from oven and put your steak and cheese mixture inside, top with a slice of provolone cheese and bake for another 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted. (You can serve with the McCain Fries/Veggie Tots)

TERIYAKI SALMON HIBACHI – Mix together minced garlic, ginger, hoisin sauce, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, white vinegar, sesame oil, lime juice and crushed red pepper flakes and marinate your salmon for up to 24 hours.I cook my salmon skin side down in a skillet on a very high heat or you can cook it on a baking sheet in the oven.In my wok, I cook up a couple of eggs, chop it up with spatula, cook minced garlic, sliced onions, sliced zucchini, chopped broccoli.When these veggies are soft you can add the 3 color cole slaw.Add in soy sauce and teriyaki sauce. Put your salmon on top and you can serve with rice or just eat the veggies and salmon.Top with chopped green onion.
