Recipe Linky Party

Mrs. Fiorini is having a recipe party.  Cooking during the school year with the long hours and kids' activities is a headache but eating out is so unhealthy not to mention expensive!  So here is my contribution to the recipes...

Taco Soup
Ingredients:
1 pound or more of browned ground beef
1 chopped onion browned with beef
1 can of corn
1 can of kidney beans
1 large can of tomato sauce
1 can of diced or whole tomatoes
1 package taco seasoning

Combine all the ingredients above (without draining the canned items) in a pot on the stove or a crock pot.
Add about 1 1/2 cups of water or more depending on consistency you like.
Simmer on stove until ready (the longer the better) or cook all day in crock pot.

Serve in bowls with tortilla chips, shredded cheese, sour cream, etc.

My family likes lots diced tomatoes so I usually add more and do whole tomatoes too.  I also buy the kind with the onions and peppers mixed in the can.  If you like spicy use the spicier taco seasoning.

This recipe will feed a small crowd and has never failed to please.  It is kind of a twist on chili many have said.  Enjoy!

Easy Ice Cream Dessert
In a rectangular glass dish place a layer of ice cream sandwich bars.  Cut and squeeze in as necessary.
Cover with a layer of whipped topping.
Cover whipped topping with a layer of chocolate ice cream topping.
Repeat.

Place in freezer until ready to serve.  

People won't believe that this is made from ice cream sandwiches!  I've made it with vanilla sandwiches, mint chocolate chip sandwiches, and strawberry sandwiches (use strawberry topping instead of chocolate...although chocolate covered strawberries are yummy, so I may have to try them mixed) and all are a hit.  You can make this in about 10 minutes and serve immediately if necessary.  Jazz up with chocolate shavings or sliced strawberries on top if you want.
