Oven Baked Fajitas:
Submitted by Ruthie Sanders

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

-1 onion
-3 bell peppers (we usually so orange, yellow & red)
-Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (typically we do one piece per adult
eating dinner)
-Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-Fajita Seasoning (1-2 packs)
-Flour tortillas
-toppings of choice, sour cream, cheese, salsa, etc

Chop up onions, bell peppers, & chicken breast and put them all in a
decent sized baking pan. Take the olive oil and give the ingredients a
good coat (I personally don’t measure I just do a zig zag over the
pan) & add fajita seasoning (1 packet for 2-3 pieces of chicken, 2
packets for 4-6 pieces.) Use hands (or large spoon if you don’t like
getting your hands dirty like me) & toss the ingredients all together
in the pan to make sure the olive oil and fajita seasoning is
distributed pretty evenly. Pop pan in the over for about 30-40 mins
(or until chicken is cooked through) and enjoy!!

It is so much easier & quicker than doing everything separately on the
stove in skillets, and you only have a few things to clean up, they
are amazing!

Hot & Spicy Sausage Dip:
Submitted by Ruthie Sanders

-3 to 4 blocks of cream cheese (depending on if you like spicy food or
not, 4 if you don’t want it to be as spicy)
-1 lb of spicy sausage (we use Bob Evans, or Jimmy Dean)
-1 can of rotelle tomatoes.
-Frito Scoops, or Tortilla Chips

Fry sausage, drain the grease off, and add cream cheese and tomatoes
and stir til has good consistency. & Enjoy!

Or you can also fry the sausage and put the ingredients in a crock pot
on low, great in the crock pot for parties with appetizers. Our family
makes this for every get together, everyone loves it, and if it
doesn’t all get eaten you can refrigerate & heat up in the microwave!

Chicken & Dumplings:
Submitted by Mandy Schwing

What you’ll need-
Crock Pot
Boneless skinless chicken breasts [according to how large of a party you are serving]
2 regular sized cans of Campbell’s Cream of Chicken soup
1 package of Grands biscuits

-depending on the schedule that day, this can be cooked on low for 8hours or high for 6hours; your choice-

Rinse chicken breasts, place in crock pot.
Empty both cans of cream of chicken soup into pot as well
Fill with enough water to submerge ingredients.

let the crock pot do it’s magic until 30mins remaining in total cook time.

use tongs to grab chicken breasts, then meat scissors (or any scissors, but meat works best) to cut chicken into bite size pieces.
open package of biscuits and tear each biscuit into halves, and simply drop into the pot.

ladle the soup over the pieces of biscuits (which will become dumplings).

let cook for the last 30mins.

the ‘dumplings’ will cook to a biscuit inside, and somewhat slimy on the outside like a traditional dumpling.

Serve :) It’s so delicious and quite effortless! Perfect on cold days/nights.
