A recipe for you!

I don't cook a whole lot due to our work schedules but when I do, I always cook out of my Third Street Baptist church cookbook!! (TSBC is in Arkadelphia and was my home church until we moved to Fayetteville.) It is a very good cook book with simple and easy reciepes from many people that I actually know. So when I got married, I was supposed to have gotten one. Well I didn't! And can you believe that no one would give theirs up for me?! Here I am a new wife and not even my own mother or mother-in-law would give theirs up!! They said they loved me a lot but that they could give up their trusty cookbook! :)

So... I went to visit my cousins in Tennessee for Thanksgiving almost a year after I got married. When I saw "the book" in her kitchen I screamed with joy and begged her to please let me have hers! haha! Obviously she loved me more than my own mom and mil because she let me take hers home with me. She does have by far the most cook books of anyone I know so I think she is doing ok without it. But I sure love my sweet cousin Deborah for letting me have her TSBC cookbook!
(Shout out to my cousins, the Milams, in Dickson, TN who are some of my faithful readers! I love ya'll!)

Anyway... The point of this post was to share a recipe from the cookbook! One of my favorite casseroles is Mexican Chicken. It is delicious and is even better as a leftover! And that is coming from someone that doesn't eat leftovers!

Mexican Chicken

3-4 chicken breast (I use boneless)
1 small chopped onion
1lb. Velveeta cheese
1 can ro-tel
1 can of cream of mushroom
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 pkg. Doritos

Boil chicken until done. Shred chicken and place in 13x9 baking dish. Slice cheese and place as next layer. Break up Doritos into crumbling pieces. Place half of bag as next layer. Mix Ro-Tel and soups together. Add as next layer. Spread remaining Doritos as top layer. Bake at 350 for 45 min.


Here is the finished product!! You may have had this before or maybe yours is a little different but it is just so yummy that I hope you all make it and enjoy! I am always needing simple recipes that can be made in about 30 mins so if you have a favorite please email me or leave me a comment! I will be sure to make it and let you know what I think of it!

It was very good! Thanks for bringing some over yesterday! The recipe I have is a little different, but still very good!

Did you put onions in it yesterday? Because I ate it and had no idea they were in there. I usually leave onions out of everything I cook but I didn't taste them in there! :)

Julee Turner said...

No there were no onions because I didn't have one! :)

Oh that sounds yummy. I sure might have to try that. I am always looking for something different to make for supper. Seems like we eat the same thing over and over again!

Love your blog...but LOVE your post! I bought a TSBC Cookbook when I worked at the business office at OBU. I've been married almost 7 years...and it is one of my most used cook books! I'll have to look this recipe up!

ok, so funny that you would ask, b/c I made this last night for dinner and its my new fav to share with everyone.

Ravioli with Tomatoes, Arugula and pancetta (or if you are making it in Arkadelphia its Ravioli with Tomatoes, Spinach and Bacon...we dont have all that fancy stuff down here!)

Anyway, here's the link: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/ravioli-with-arugula-tomatoes-and-pancetta-recipe/index.html

It was so yummy..but my modification to the recipe would be to add a little garlic.
