I followed another reviewer's suggestion and made these into tablespoon-ful drops with 2-3 Fench Vanilla coffee beans on top. I added cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg to the chocolate to complement the French Vanilla flavor, I omitted the white choocolate. I gave these as a birthday present to a co-worker and reveived rave reviews! She asked for the recipe....Works great for making chocolate-covered strawberries as well. Super easy and delicious!
I made this recipe with the modifications compiled by Corrine. While the flavor was good, I wasn't a fan of the flour coating on the stew meat. It gave the meat a somewhat 'slimy' outside. Also, I believe due to the flour cooking all day in the stew the thickened sauce burned to the sides of the crock pot. Next time, I think I'll brown the stew meat without the flour, then add the flour to the broth the last hour of cooking. Overall, still pretty good.
EXCELLENT! First time cooking this dish and the recipe is fantastic! I made very few changes, and it will require no further changes. I threw the raw chicken breasts in the crock-pot with the other ingredients and cooked on High for 3.5 hours (as another reviewer suggested) then pulled the chicken out, shredded it with two forks, and placed it back in the crock-pot for another hour or so. I used one can of Hot enchilada sauce, and in place of the water used about 1 cup of Mild enchilada sauce. This gave the soup a nice thick consistency. I had bought a bag of tortilla chips instead of making my own, but as I served the soup with a cheddar and green salsa quesadilla I totally forgot about the chips - still great! I garnished with shredded cheddar cheese, lime juice, shredded lettuce, green onions, and avocado - YUM! The best part of this dish is the mouth-watering smell that warms the house on a cool, rainy day!
Fabulous fall flavor and absolutely simple to make! How can it get easier with only two ingredients in the base recipe? I added one egg, 1 cup chocolate chips, and drizzled melted cream cheese frosting over the tops (about 2-3 tbsp. melted for 30 seconds in the microwave tops 12 cookies). Love the fall aroma throughout my home, and the pumpkin-spicy taste can't be beat. Will make for get-togethers throughout the season!
Very Spicy and full of flavor! Don't let the negative reviews keep you from giving this recipe a try. As with all recipes, you just have to tailor them to your tastes. I cooked the standard amount of pasta I usually use for four servings. Instead of measuring the spices I simply seasoned both sides of the chicken breasts liberally, then added some additional spice to the sauce. I used one and a half cans of chicken broth, and to thicken sauce added 2tbsp. flour mixed with 2tbsp. broth close to the end of the simmering time. The last minute of cooking I added a splash of skim milk, 2tbsp. fat free sour cream, and a couple cups of cherry tomatoes that I had sliced in half. This created a lovely, fragrant, and rich sauce that is still fairly 'healthy'. The cherry tomatoes added both zing and sweetness. Served with broccoli on the side drizzled with the sauce...YUM! Am excited about the leftovers I brought for lunch!
As written - not the kind of mexican flavor I was hoping for. With many, many additions (enchilada sauce, hot sauce, red pepper flakes, cumin, chili powder, and lime juice) I was able to create something I really enjoyed. But, after cooking and shredding as directed (even after letting the shredded meat simmer in the juices) there was no real seasoning for the beef to absorb. Smelled like a very weak chili. The idea to add the cilantro in at the end was a good one - definitely adds to the dish.
Taco shells cooked at home give your tacos a very authentic taste, and make a meal that is restaurant quality! I followed this recipe and had wonderful cruchy, flavorful tacos. I sprinkled mine with seasoned salt right after removing from the oil. Put down your packaged taco shells and give this recipe a try - you don't know what you've been missing!
Excellent and Easy! I followed some previous reviewers' suggestions and cut the water to 1/3 cup, and broiled for a few minutes after dessert was done baking. I spooned only about 1/2 of the syrup mixture onto the enchiladas, then mid-way through baking I spooned about 1/4 more, discarding the final 1/4. These turned out restraunt-quality! Nice crispy top, sweet apple cinnamon flavor. Served 1/2 enchilada with about 1/4 cup of Vanilla Frozen Yougurt with some sauce spooned on top of it. Delicious! Will be sharing this recipe with the family!
Warm and delicious! I made a few additions: 1/2 cup chopped onion, 1tbsp. minced garlic, 1 cup shredded cheddar, 1/2 tsp. black pepper, and doubled the cayenne pepper. I kept the dish covered with aluminum foil for about half of the baking time. Creamy and filling this dish went well with the BBQ pulled pork and green salad I had prepared. Thank you, Helen!
Simple, quick, and delicious base recipe. I followed the suggestions of some previous reviews: 1) scrambled eggs in 1tbsp butter, 2) used sesame oil, 3) stir-fried 4 cloves garlic and half a roughly chopped onion in the oil before adding the rice. To suit my personal tastes I added half a tbsp. red chili paste when adding the soy sauce and about 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro the last 15 seconds of stir-frying. Will most definitely make again soon. *also, used Slow-Cooker Turkey Breast from this site instead of chicken because that happened to be the leftovers I had on hand* Thanks CJ!
First from-scratch success in my bread machine! I'd been using my machine mainly for just dough, as anything other than a packaged mix just didn't bake right in my machine. This recipe was DELICIOUS! I used the suggestions made by several reviewers (increase honey, salt, and whole wheat flour) and my loaf was beautiful! Nice crust, soft enough to slice for sandwiches, and toasts up wonderfully without being too "crumby". Thank you for this recipe.
A delicious multi-purpose bread. Bakes beautifully in the machine, is delicious hot and fresh with butter, great for sandwiches and toast the next day. I followed the suggestions of increasing the whole wheat flour, yeast, and 1tbsp brown sugar. Thank you for a great recipe and helpful-hint reviews!
