Cook At Home Adventure!!!

Ok, I finally got a chance to bake my Cowboy Beans and all I have to say is YUM,YUM!!! If you like BBQ Baked Beans, than you will love these. Instead of putting in the BBQ from a bottle, you are basically making your on BBQ sauce for your beans by adding the Ketchup, mustard, worcestershire sauce ect... Very good Beans for sure. Here is the recipe below.

Cowboy Beans

Pork and beans, 2 (18 oz) cans
Ketchup, 1 cup
Brown sugar, 1/4 to 1/2 cup
2 tablespoonsMustard,
1 tablespoon
Onion, 1/2 cup, finely chopped
JalapeƱo pepper, 1 teaspoon, pickled, finely chopped
Bacon, 2 strips raw

Saute onions and pepper together until tender and carmalized.
Mix all ingredients together except for the bacon. Pour into a two-quart casserole. Top with bacon. Bake at 350 for approximately one hour. Remove bacon and stir before serving. Serves 6-8.

I also gave a few other recipes a try over the week and totally thought they ROCKED!!!

Creamy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas, which I got the recipe from ShabbyPrincess blog. I substitued the chicken, for beef, because my men love beef more. Other than that, I did the recipe to the exact, and it was soooo yummy!!! It made 2 and half pans and we ate it all weekend. I also made homemade Mexican Rice to go with it. I tried to make this years ago and it turned out so bad, that I have not been brave enough to do it again until now. I found this Mexican Rice recipe on Annie's Eats and after reading her post, decided to give it a try. It turned out wonderfully. So tender and tasty. It is definately going into my favorite recipes and she is right about it tasting like the resturants. I will admit that it takes some time to prepare, but it is worth every minute. Very good Mexican Rice.

As we, my family, have been forced to eat at home because of financial reasons, I will be searching and experimenting more with recipes I find in different places such as my own recipe books, internet, and magizines. My goal is to find inexpensive ways to cook, foods that my family loves, and not get bored of the same ole same ole, so we continue the desire to eat at home. So please come back and see what I discover in my new Cook at Home Adventure.
This weeks menu recipes are:
Swedish Meatballs
Baked Zita
Roast Beef Sandwiches with Beef Broth
Fish Tacos
Baked Chicken Thighs
Happy Monday everyone!!!
