Chicken Bacon Ranch Wrap

Saturday, April 30, 2011

This is one of the favorite things I make at work, It super easy and when I make it at home I use my George.

2 Chicken Strips/Boneless Skinless
2-3 Bacon Strips
Romaine Lettuce
1/2 Small Tomato
1 Wrap
Ranch (or Ceaser) dressing

Cook the bacon strips until they are crispy flipping over every once in a while (close the lid so the cook quicker) then cook the Chicken (since they are generally different thicknesses you will have to flip them over as well) thinly chop the lettuce so it looks almost shredded and dice the tomato, lay out your tortilla like wrap lay down your lettuce then put some tomato, then the chicken and bacon drizzle the ranch dressing on top. Make sure when you lay down your insides you put it on top of each other and towards one end see picture. Fold up* and serve, goes best with an Arnold Palmer!

*How to fold a wrap, turn the tortilla so the food is horizontal grab the side closest to you and pull it across the insides, fold the bottom up then roll it leaving the top open!!!

Sausage Gravy

Okay so I'm a North Western Girl relocated to the South East, I grew up hating all things southern and well a lot (like grits) I could still do without, there are some things that I love and have grown to love like cornbread.... well the other is Sausage Gravy... MMM the smell the test and over a warm flaky biscuit ****drool**** so here is my recipe: (btw this was made by me two weeks ago at my In-laws house the morning after the Guac)

Use a Pan with Deep Sides, first use pan spray to spray the pan (again another trick of the trade) then brown the sausage (check out the neato thing my MIL has)
Then you are going to add half a stick of butter Butter (yep this is not low fat). Then add about a quarter cup of flour (I don't usually measure so just compare to the picture, notice how it clumps together) Plenty of Garlic powder, onion powder, and a little bit of season salt.
Mix it until there is no Nutty Flavor (again I don't time it but it should be around four min for a white rue, however it will look a little brown cause there is sausage in it!)

Then mix in a quart of heavy cream and then milk until it thins out. Taste if you need more spices add them until your heart is content!
Serve on a Biscuit and Enjoy

Yummy Guac

Two weekends ago I went to Tarpon Springs, to spend the weekend with my in-laws. My mother in law and myself love snacking on things like chips and salsa well we love Guacamole... we found an awesome brand at Winn Dixie however this weekend we where unable to find it... feeling certain disappear I decided to make some Guac and it was YUMMY!!!

1 Red Onion
3 Avocados
2 Plum Tomatoes
1 Handful of Cilantro
1 Lime
3 Garlic Cloves
Salt to taste

1. put lime in microwave for 10 seconds (yep that's a cook trick)*
2. mince the red onion, plum tomatoes, cilantro and garlic combine in bowl.
3. peal and slice the Avocados then mash with a potato masher.
4. mix all together and add salt to taste and squeeze in the lime juice

Eat with your favorite Tortilla chips (or make your own) Remember if you store it, it will get a brown tint this is normal as it doesn't have any preservatives in it just mix it and enjoy!

Special how to:
okay if you have never cut up an avocado don't fret it's really easy if you fallow these directions
1. Cut completely in half (remember there is a pit so you have to go around it)
2. The halves should still be together if you hold onto either side and twist one should pop off really easy leaving the other side with the pit in it.
3. Hold the side with the pit in it and take your knife (in your cutting hand) and use the heel and hit the pit (you have to hit it HARD) then twist and the pit will pop right out attached to the heel of the knife.
4. Slightly break the skin at the smallest point and the skin should just peel off.

Goes great with Bud Light with Lime MMM YUMMY!!!

*the reason you put the lime in the microwaves it to soften it when you slice it in half it squeezes easily and you get all the juice out!
