Another Spinach Dip; slightly different
1 package frozen spinach, thawed and drained (best to squeeze most of the liquid out by hand)
1 cup fat free (or light) sour cream
1 packet of vegetable soup mix
1 can of water chestnuts, chopped
3 T. chopped green onions
Stir everything together and refrigerate until you're ready to use. Best with veggies, especially sliced mushroom and crackers. It's a little too stiff for potato chips.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
2 (10 ounce) cans chunk chicken, drained
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup Ranch dressing
3/4 cup pepper sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot®)
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Heat chicken and hot sauce in a skillet over medium heat, until heated through. Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing. Cook, stirring until well blended and warm. Mix in half of the shredded cheese, and transfer the mixture to a slow cooker. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top, cover, and cook on Low setting until hot and bubbly. Serve with celery sticks and crackers or tortilla chips.
I make my version "light" and use LIGHT ranch dressing and LIGHT cream cheese. You can also substitute blue cheese dressing for the ranch. Before heating the mixture, taste it and add extra hot sauce if you want a little more kick! Lastly, if you want it quicker, you can put it in the oven at about 350 degrees for 20 minutes or so and then transfer it in a small crock pot to keep it warm.
3.5 pounds Ground beef
¾ loaf bread (torn up bread slice them in cubes)
Salt & pep
onions, finely chopped
beef bullion: 1-2 cubes per meat: MUST= flavor
Take ground beef and mix with bread FIRST, get it nice and mixed.
Then take your salt & pep, onions and mix
Third, take your beef bullion cubes and mix them in MINIMAL water, just enough to melt the cubes down and mix that in with your beef mix, DO THIS LAST otherwise it just turns your bread into mush.
Once your mixture is done, roll into golf ball sized (slightly bigger, will shrink on cooking) balls and fry in DRY pan. Cook until outside is brown and middle is done.
These are served great in just a crock pot and you just munch on them through out the day
