I can't stress to you enough the idea of bargain hunting. I DON'T
purchase anything on this budget UNLESS it is on sale, or I desperately need it.
You can live amicably by checking local food sales and then utilizing some of
these recipes. I always tally what I have on hand before attempting a new
recipe. Gone are the days I can take a trip to the local grocery with an item
list in hand. But, regardless of my stature, I am able to provide quality,
delicious meals for my family.
Split chicken breasts have been on sale recently
for 99 cents a pound. Today, flour tortillas were on sale for 59 cents a
pack at my local EXTREME discount food store. Notice I say extreme because it is
not a national brand chain. You must seek one of these in your area. They are
everywhere with this recession.
I also had some left over shredded cheese in the freezer.
Great dinner combination if you ask me! I can make quite
a few quesadillas with only one chicken breast that has been cut in half
diagonally. Also, we don't use the salsa packet in our El Paso taco dinner
boxes. I save them for this meal.
2 precut chicken breasts cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 1/2 cups of Frozen Seasoning Blend
salt and pepper to taste
1 tab. oil
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning blend
oil for frying
1 packet or 1/4 cup salsa
1 pack of flour tortillas
1 package of shredded cheddar cheese
Place chicken breasts, oil, and Frozen Seasoning Blend into large
fry pan. Fry until cooked about 15 minutes. Allow mixture to cool slightly so
you can work with it. Place it in a bowl for easy retrieval. Wipe frying pan and
place another tab. oil in the bottom. Set heat on med./low. Place on tortilla,
add 1 tab. salsa, 2 tab. of chicken blend, and 1 tab. of cheese, top with additional
tortilla. Fry on one side for 3 min. Turn tortilla onto the other side and fry
for an additional 3 min. Tortilla should be slightly golden brown before
turning. You can make large tortillas utilizing large shells, just adjust your
ingredients. Place on counter and cut into four sections using a pizza cutter on
