I made this recipe according to the recipe given and it was very good soup. The salt-to-taste is the key here. Using stocks or seasonings that are based on salt do the same thing. This would be great with a vegetable stock, but this recipe gave me the hearty, rich lentil soup I was looking for. Thank you!
This is a great dish! The first time I tried it, I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out great! The second time, I wanted to use ingredients in "as they come" quantities. My chicken broth comes in cans aof 15.5 ounces, just shy of two cups. The salsa comes in a 16 ounce (by weight) container, and is over one cup. Wanting a more saucy rice, I used the smallest onion I had, 1 cup of rice instead of 1.5 cups, one can of broth, and one jar of salsa. I enjoyed it just as much. What a wonderful recipe this cook submitted! It's so much better than anything I've used from a package, and gave me the courage to modify it just a bit to suit my needs!
This was fantastic! I made it for a morning breakfast event at work, and it was received extremely well. Even better, it was all eaten! Nice blend of smooth and spicy flavors! You can change the veggies to your taste, or to availability, and it comes out great!
I make this with ground turkey instead of ground beef, and it's still a wonderful recipe! I enjoy it more with the flour tortillas than with the corn. The corn tortillas gave a kind of "sour" taste that I didn't enjoy. I've used this recipe several times, and will continue to enjoy it. I do believe, after some research, that Picante Sauce is just another name for Salsa, so a nice salsa would also do the trick.
The first time I tried this recipe, I did it as closely as I could. At my home, we regulary only have skim milk and Egg-Beaters style eggs, so I used them. It was fantastic! These are some of the best waffles I could have hoped to fine! After that, I tried using vegetable oil instead of melting the margarine. Just as yummy! Thank you for this recipe. Easy to make and delicious to eat. On most waffle irons, the waffle is "done" when the steam stops rising from the iron.
This is a great recipe. I chose to spray the plate with the cooking spray, then place the potatoes on the plate (leaving NO potato at the center so it wouldn't burn) and then spraying the top again quickly with spray. That way, I didn't need to toss them in a bag with oil. On some of the batches, I also gave a quick sprinkle of salt before cooking, so the salt would stick nicely. TERRIFIC! The only mistake I made was to keep reusing the same two glass plates. One got too hot after a couple batches because I didn't let it cool properly. MY MISTAKE, and it cost me a plate. I'm happy it was a cheap plate, so my foolishness did not come at a high price. It took just about 5 minutes in my microwave. I had my doubts, but this recipe delivered. Potatoes are a cheap food, so this recipe is one worth experimenting with! THANKS!
I've made this recipe a few times now, and I love it! The combination of flavors (the sugar surprised me) have a very nice complexity that I was not expecting. I've thought about adding other vegetables into this recipe, but it's just great as it is. I made this with pork the first time, since I had an extra boneless pork chop on hand. After that, I made it with chicken, and it's just as good. Thank you for this recipe! Now we're reallyl cooking!
I looked at the different recipes for rice pilaf on this site, and settled on this one because of its simplicity. I followed it exactly, using my trusty non-stick heavy skillet. It turned out EXACTLY as I expected, based on the simple ingredients. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! This is now a standard at my house.
I went ahead and made this recipe with regular sugar, and it was terrific! The sauce is easy to make and truly delicious. I'm making it this evening for the second time. I have found that adding a tablespoon of molasses gives it a slight taste as if I had used brown sugar. I just put that in at the beginning with everything else. Great recipe! Thanks!
I had a lot of reservations about trying this, because someone at my house is really picky about pizza crust, saying that it needs to rise and rest for at least a couple days. I tried this in hopes that it would at least be decent. To my great surprise, it got compliments. It's a nice balance somewhere between thin and pan crust. This recipe is part of my permanent collection now! Thanks!
These were fantastic! I was a little scared of the sugar when I first made the recipe, but I like to try recipes "as is" the first time I try them. BRAVO! BRAVO! The directions and ingredients are just right. I had never tried dumplings as an adult, and this brought back so many wonderful childhood food memories. Thank you!
I made this tonight for the first time, when I was looking for ideas for zucchini. I did not have sesame seeds, so I put a bit of sesame oil in with the regular oil. I enjoyed the blend of the teriyaki and soy sauces. Depending on the size you choose to slice the zucchini, you have to make a judgment call on when it's time to stop cooking it, so it doesn't get soggy. This recipe didn't have a lot of complicated ingredients, so I didn't expect a very complicated taste. It was very much as expected, and it's something that's quite easy to put together quickly. BRAVO! I served it on a bed of "pilaf" made with some chopped onion, basmati rice, farro, and quinoa, made with vegetable broth. I would enjoy this with some sauteed chicken on top to make a complete meal.
