Green Chili Turkey (or Chicken) Pot Pie

I'm not going to plan a menu for this next week. We have lots of leftovers from Christmas and I didn't use up all my menus from last week. I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Mine was great, nice and relaxing.

Did you make a turkey for Christmas dinner? I didn't, I made a ham. But if you did make a turkey here's a really simple, pantry-ingredient dinner to use up some of that turkey..


Green Chili Turkey (or Chicken) Pot Pie
I got the recipe from some ladies at church

I usually half this for my family
2 green onions, chopped

3 Tbl. oil
2 (4.5 oz) cans chopped green chiles, undrained
1 (2.25 oz) can sliced ripe olives, drained
¼ cup flour
1 ½ tsp ground cumin
2 (16 oz) cans pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14 oz) can chicken broth (I used 2 cans, to thin it out a bit)

2 cups chopped cooked turkey breast (or chicken)
2 cups shredded Mexican four-cheese blend
biscuit dough (I've used crescent roll dough and made these biscuits from the Sisters' Cafe)

Saute green onions in oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat 1 minute. Add green chiles and next 3 ingredients; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in beans and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring constantly, 5 to 7 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Stir in turkey. Pour into a greased 13x9 baking dish. Top with cheese. Top with biscuit*.

Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until topping is golden and pot pie is bubbly.


*I usually just bake the bean/chicken mixture without the biscuit.  I bake biscuits separately and put it on top when I serve it.

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil

Havreflarn (Swedish Oat Crisp Cookies)

We had some teenagers over for a Swedish themed dinner last night.  They were participating in a "missionary for a day" activity.  They were paired up into companionships, like the official missionaries for our church and were assigned to a family for dinner.  They ate with us and then taught us a lesson about Heavenly Father's plan for us.   My husband served a mission in Sweden.  He lived there for two years and loved it.  Swedish meatballs are a staple at our house.  (They're super easy to make and my pickiest eater's favorite!).  When we visit IKEA we usually stock up on the cream gravy packets and jars of Lingonberries.  We were out of lingonberry, but after a few phone calls, I found some at one of our local grocery stores. We ate meatballs, gravy, lingonberry, mashed potatoes (I ran out of time, other wise I would have steamed little red potatoes from our garden) and green beans (though my husband doesn't remember eating them in Sweden
