Two Ingredient Crockpot Mexican Chicken
Two Ingredient Crockpot Mexican Chicken

Easiest recipe ever! Works great in tacos, burritos, enchiladas or even on a salad.

Be sure that your chicken breasts are defrosted. If still frozen, the meat will have too much moisture and will change the taste.

Trust me - it does NOT taste like chicken and salsa. Submitted by: BUN3KIN

Quinoa Pasta-less "Pasta Salad"
Quinoa Pasta-less

My family loves pasta salad for picnics. Since I haven't been eating pasta as part of my diet, I would just make it and do without. Well, for Labor Day, I realized I didn't have pasta and decided to use some quinoa I had in the pantry. This is tasty, nutty and HEALTHY!! Your family will most likely NOT miss their pasta. Add green and red pepper, chopped onion, small diced broccolli and cauliflower, cucumber and any garden fresh veggie to make even better!Submitted by: JOEKNEE

Baked Beans: more beans, less gas

Beans are a great source of protien and dietary fiber but most avoid them because they can also be a source of gas. Preparing them this way will guarantee less gas later. It does take quite a bit of time, but it makes about 12 cups so you can throw some in the freezer for later.Submitted by: ALEEMK

Dan's five-ingredient emergency meat stew

This is a recipe modified from something I invented a long time ago, back when I did survival training. The original "recipe" was squirrel meat, browned on hot rocks, along with cattail roots, wild-grown carrots (probably an old farm), one mint leaf, some wild spices, and water. I'm sure there was some ash and flies in there somewhere; that's what you get when you make stew on rocks and an uncovered metal container over an open fire. Don't worry; this recipe doesn't contain anything gross.

SparkPeople doesn't have mint, cattail roots, or squirrel as ingredients. Since most of you don't live near wetlands with cattails and you can't buy squirrel meat anyway, I substituted a parsnip and a large (3/4 pound) potato for the cattails and beef chuck for the squirrel. You can use any meat you like. I've seen goat, lamb, and other red meats in stores; go wild!

Please comment, including how many servings you get (I guess-timated four cup-plus servings) and how well it tastes with different combinations of meat and spices. It isn't for everyone, but many will like it.Submitted by: DAN_ODEA
