new week, new recipes!

well, here's the score:

crazy schedule: 1
after5chef: 0

My first week with the unusual work schedule really threw me for a loop. Working through the lunch hour as well as a reasonable dinner time was, to say the least, challenging. But, it's a new week and I'm back up to the challenge! I started with another slow-cooker recipe to begin the week, and we will see what tomorrow brings!

Taco Casserole


1.3 lbs ground turkey, browned
14.5 oz chopped tomatoes
1 can cream of onion (I actually used cream of chicken, and it worked fine)
1.25 oz packet taco seasoning
1/4 c. water
6 tortillas, sliced into 1/2 in. strips
hot sauce (to taste)

Brown the turkey, then combine it with the tomatoes, cream of onion, water, and taco seasoning in the slow cooker. Stir in torilla stips, and cook on low for 4 hours (in a 5 qt slow cooker). Serve topped with sour cream and shredded cheese.

We were both a little skeptical about the tortilla strips, but we actually loved them! Also, since we like different amounts of spicy in our food, we added our hot sauce to our individual bowls. If you're sure about the amount you want to add, go ahead and put it right in the slow cooker with the rest of the ingredients.
