Leftover Jell-O that didn’t set up well or Jell-O that you make for this purpose from a store brand.
Juice or syrup left over from canned fruit.
Juice that has been in the fridge and needs to be used up.
Kool-Aid or lemonade mixes bought on sale.
Green Chicken Chili
16 ounces green salsa verde
I used a bag of Tyson oven roasted diced chicken breast and put that in the crockpot on low for a couple of hours. About an hour before dinner I added a block of cream cheese and let that melt well.
10 ounces ground beef
14 ounce can bean sprouts
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
8 ounce can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
Salt & Pepper to taste
Brown ground beef in heavy skillet and drain.
Add pepper, onion, tomato sauce, and spices.
Simmer for 30 minutes.
Add bean sprouts and heat through.
Your choice of meat (12 to 16 ounces)
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cups cooked rice
1 onion, chopped
1 celery rib, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 to 3 teaspoons Cajun Spice Mix (recipe below)
I cook my rice ahead of time using 1 part rice to 2 parts broth or water.
Then I have leftover rice for another meal later in the week.
You can also cook your rice in with the meat after it’s browned, if you prefer.
Pan fry your meat selection in a skillet with a couple tablespoons of olive oil.
Add the holy trinity of onions, celery, and bell peppers.
Cook for five minutes or until softened.
Add rice and stir well.
Add two to three teaspoons of Cajun seasoning mix.
Mix well and heat throughout.
Serve and enjoy.
Cajun Seasoning Mix
If you want to make this more Creole style you can add some chili powder to the mix. I like making my own Cajun seasoning mix because I can control the hot spices that go into the mix. Feel free to add cayenne pepper to your spice mix if you prefer.
5 teaspoons paprika
3 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons garlic powder
4 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried thyme
Add all spices together in a small mason jar.
Stir together well, label, and store with other spices.
