September Munchin Mamas!

Thursday is September's Munchin' Mamas meeting - woot, woot! I loooove these get-togethers because I always leave with a full belly, tons of delicious leftovers, and recipes to add to my collection. This month's theme is "30-minute meals" since school has started and we all need as much time as we can get outside of the kitchen. I'm making one of my favorite quick meals - mixed-up enchiladas! It's so easy to make and tastes sooooo delicious. Make sure to serve it up over rice.

Mixed-up Enchiladas
1 - 2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 small onion
Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
1 can enchilada sauce
1 small can chopped green chilies
1 can cream of mushroom soup
10 corn tortillas, crushed
1 - 2 cups cheddar cheese

  1. Brown ground beef. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.
  2. When complete, add green chilies, enchilada sauce and cream of mushroom soup. Mix well.
  3. Add corn tortillas, cover and simmer 10 minutes.
  4. Cover with cheese and let melt.
  5. Serve after a few minutes over rice.

I also whipped up a quick dessert of Rice Krispie treats because I had some of the cereal to use up. I told Linds we were making them and she asked if we could make them a special color. Last time I made them we did green ones (remember this post?), but today she requested pink. So without further ado - our pink Rice Krispies treats!

Rice Krispies Treats
3 tablespoons butter
10 oz. bag mini-marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies
12 drops red food coloring
4 drops blue food coloring

  1. Melt butter on low in large saucepan.
  2. Once melted, pour in marshmallows; add food coloring once marshmallows are creamy.
  3. Mix in Rice Krispies.
  4. Spread into a greased 9 x 13 pan/baking dish. Use wax paper to flatten top.
  5. Let cool for about an hour.
