Creamy Rotel Dip - Football Friday

Creamy Rotel Dip - sausage, velveeta, cream cheese, sour cream and Rotel - this dip is amazing! It is always the first thing to go!! Everyone asks for the recipe!!

It's Championship Saturday tomorrow.  I will be watching the SEC Championship and snacking on this dip.  This is a kicked up version of my favorite Rotel Queso Dip.  This version has sausage, cream cheese and sour cream mixed in.  It is so creamy and delicious.  It is one of those dips that you keep saying "This is my last bite" and you just keep eating anyway.  You may want to double the recipe because this goes quick.  I like to keep this dip warm in the crockpot.  Serve this with some tortilla chips for an instant hit.

Homemade Peppermint Hot Chocolate Mix

Homemade Peppermint Hot Chocolate Mix - great homemade holiday gift! I always have a jar in the pantry. This is SO good!!! SO easy to make. Only 5 ingredients - Candy canes, dry milk, cocoa powder, powdered sugar and corn starch. Christmas in a mug. YUM!

I love to make homemade food gifts for the holidays.  Last year I made some delicious Christmas Spice Tea Mix.  I gave it as gifts to my co-workers, and they all loved it. This year, I am making this Peppermint Hot Chocolate Mix.  The mix tastes great.  It has the perfect kiss of peppermint in every sip.  I gave some away at Thanksgiving.  Everyone gave it two thumbs up.

I bought the jars at World Market for $1.50 each.  I crushed the candy canes in the food processor until they were turned into candy cane dust.  I just mixed the crushed candy canes with the rest of the ingredients and poured the mix into the jars.  This makes about 5 1/2 cups of mix.  To make hot chocolate, combine 1/3 cup of mix with 1 cup of hot water or milk.

White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili Recipe - chicken, white beans, green chiles, spices and chicken broth - ready in 20 minutes!

It is finally chili/soup weather in The Ham.  We made this White Chicken Chili for the football games last weekend and it was delicious!  It only took about 20 minutes to make - you can't beat that!  This is more of a chili consistency than a soup consistency.  If you prefer more of a soup consistency, just increase the the amount of chicken broth.  We served the chili with some homemade cornbread.  If you have any leftover turkey, feel free to use it in place of the chicken.  This is a great meal for the busy holiday season.

Rosemary Roasted Cashews


I've already made two batches of these nuts.  They are super delicious.  They are sweet and salty with a hint of a kick.  I bought the cashews at Costco.  The container has enough cashews to make a double batch of this recipe.  I highly recommend doubling the recipe. These nuts are so addictive.  These are great to snack on during the holidays.  I plan on making another batch to give away to my neighbors.

Hot Turkey Club Dips - Football Friday


The Hot Turkey Club Dips are a great way to use up some of that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving tomorrow.  These are also perfect for watching the Iron Bowl this weekend!   I dipped the turkey in some beef broth to give it more flavor and topped it with some honey mustard, bacon and cheese.  They were so delicious.  I can't stop thinking about these sandwiches.  We used our favorite pretzel slider buns from Costco.  If you can't get a pretzel roll, I suggest a french roll. You want a firmer roll for this sandwich. I am really looking forward to leftover turkey this year!

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup - Ready in 10 minutes!!! Doctored up canned tomato soup with refrigerated tortellini, chicken broth, half-and-half, onion powder, garlic powder, basil and parmesan cheese. This stuff is crazy good! No one will ever know it starts with canned soup! I can't get enough of it!

I have a confession.  I love canned tomato soup.  I make it with milk so it is nice and creamy.  It really hits the spot for me.  I ran across this recipe on the internet and I knew I had to give it a try since it uses canned tomato soup as the base.

This is not your ordinary canned tomato soup.  It is doctored up with chicken broth, half and half, cheese and plenty of spices.  Best of all, it has cheese tortellini mixed in.  It was absolutely delicious!  It only took about 15 minutes to make.  Just boil the tortellini while you get the soup going.  Stir in the pasta and it is done!  I served the soup with a piece of garlic toast.  I highly suggest dipping the garlic toast in the soup- YUM!

Spicy Sausage Skillet

One-Pot Spicy Sausage Skillet - smoked sausage, chicken broth, cream, pasta, rotel, cheese and green onions. Everything cooks in the same skillet, even the pasta! Quick recipe! Ready in 15 minutes! My husband asked for this 3 days in a row!

OMG!  This was SO good!  The best part of this meal is that it only uses one pan.  The pasta cooks while it simmers in the sauce.  Yay for less dishes to clean!!

Our pasta was super spicy.  I sent Chicken Legs to the grocery store and he bought Hot Rotel.  Let me tell you, Hot Rotel is super spicy!  Fortunately, we both like spicy food!  I decided to splurge on calories and used Conech Smoked Sausage.  It had great flavor and smelled wonderful cooking.  Feel free to substitute smoked turkey sausage if you want to cut down on the calories.

This makes a ton.  We saved the leftovers for lunch.  I poured a little chicken broth in the container so the pasta wouldn't dry out when we reheated it.  It was just as good leftover.
