Mexican Manana Cheddar Crescent Roll-ups
So, I wanted to make something easy because I spent most of the day in my work room making things for the store. I was going to make tacos, but not in the mood to fry tortilla shells and I didn't have my taco seasoning made or the store packets on hand, so that went out the window.
I opened my spice cabinet and went through my mixes tray and found my Carmie's Mexican Mañana dip and cheeseball mix packet. Hmmmm... I wonder how that would be with my ground beef and sautéed onions? Well, it turned out so tasty. I added about 1/4 cup of water to the meat mixture and seasoning packet. I opted to try something different, so I grabbed some crescent rolls dough and laid them out on my parchment lined pan, I put a good spoonful of the meat mixture and a large pinch of shredded cheddar onto the wide end of the dough, then rolled it up as normal and baked on 350° for 13 minutes (time depends on your oven) and allowed to cool.
I, also, had an extra half of a poblano pepper left from my omelets the other day, so I made the husband an extra treat by stuffing it with the meat mixture and cheddar cheese.
These were delicious, spicy, but delicious! I enjoyed mine with some fresh avocado slices.
Hope you enjoy this simple and delicious treat one day too! And never discount dip mixes for being just dip mixes.
Carmie's Kitchen Soup Mixes - Italian Sausage and Pasta
I did not have Italian sausage, so when that happens I always fall back on Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage. I did their suggested add on of fresh spinach and then sprinkled with grated parmesan cheese. I also added a sprinkling of garlic salt. Very tasty.
Don't be afraid to play with your own variations. Sometimes playing around with mixes will lead to even yummier recipes.
Caramelized Onion Roast Beef Sandwiches
Melt a stick and a half of butter in a pan and add 3/4 of a package of the dip mix and mix with butter, then add 1 pound of deli roast beef and cook until well mixed. Butter both sides of onion rolls. Top the bottom roll with the beef and add some cheddar sauce, place top rolls on top and bake at 300° for 8 to 10 minutes.
Jalapeno Ranch Chicken and Rice Soup
I forgot to defrost meat (this happens frequently), so Instant Pot to the rescue! I threw about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of frozen chicken tenderloins into the Instant Pot and cooked on manual setting for about 30 minutes, then shredded the chicken and stirred in Chicken Shit and about half to three-quarters of the Carmie's Jalapeño Ranch dip mix , then added a can of corn, a can of black beans (drained and rinse, a can of Rotel, and a few cups of water and mixed in some chicken bullion and dried cilantro (it's what I had on hand). Then I cooked on manual setting for 5 minutes and made rice in my rice cooker. And Voila! Top with some sour cream and shredded cheddar or Monterrey jack cheese.
It was so very tasty.
Never underestimate dip mixes, they can be used for a lot more than dips!
Chillin' with the Chili!
Our Carmie's Chili Mix is fantastic when coupled with our AW Shit!
The Aw Shit adds a little extra kick. Just season your ground beef with the AW Shit and a little salt, then follow the Carmie's Chili Mix instructions to finish it off.
