During the week, I make something quick and easy and here are a couple of examples.
1 pound ground chuck
1 small onion, chopped
1 10 ounce can tomato soup, undiluted
1 10 ounce can mild enchilada sauce
8 8 inch flour tortillas
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Cook beef and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat until meat is browned, stirring until it crumbles; drain and return to skillet. Stir soup and enchilada sauce into the meat mixture. Spread 1/4 cup meat mixture onto each tortilla, sprinkle evenly with one cup of cheese. Roll up tortillas; place seam side down in a greased 13x9x2 inch baking dish. Pour remaining meat mixture over the tortillas. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese; bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts. Serve with sour cream.
I served this with a can of refried beans and a packet of Spanish rice.
Three Pepper Pork Cutlets
1 pound pork tenderloin (I opted for 4 pork chops)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
vegetable cooking spray
Cut pork crosswise into 12 slices. Place each pork slice between two sheets of heavy duty plastic wrap, and flatted to 1/4 inch thickness, using the heel of your hand or meat mallet (or do what I did and buy four pork chops).
Combine paprika and next 9 ingredients, rub over both sides of pork slices. Place pork on a broiler rack coated with cooking spray, place rack in broiler pan. Broil 5 1/2 inches from heat with door partially open for 3-4 minutes on each side or until done. Keep an eye on this part as broiling can be tricky and you need a clean oven.
*this can be expensive if you don't already have the spices on hand, which I did.
* I served this with cheddar broccoli and a mashed potato packet.
