2013: Month of Mel Day 13 (and 12)

Day 12 was spent in a haze of sparkle. It was a good day, but nothing really to report…other than, YaY for Day 12!

Well, I did make up a new recipe. I was totally gonna make the Chicken Taco Pie recipe that I pinned yesterday, but it kinda morphed into my own recipe. With different ingredients.

And instead of a pie, it was more like a casserole.

And it was very, very good.

I’d give you the recipe, but I’m kinda funny when I cook. I really don’t measure much. However, here’s the gist:

Melf’s made up Chicken Taco Casserole

greased 9×12 pan
3 packs Tyson Fajita Chicken (diced)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 pack McCormick Garlic Lime Chicken Fajita seasonings
1 can Mexican Rotel (drained)
1 can black beans (drained)

1 cup shredded cheddar
1.5 cups bisquick
1.5 cups milk
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 400.

In large skillet, add all ingredients in first group. Stir occasionally, until the liquid reduces. Pour into 9×12 pan.

Add half the cheese over the mixture.

Mix bisquick, milk, eggs and whisk until blended. Pour over cheese and chicken mixture. Bake until golden brown. Add remaining cheese to top of casserole during last 5 minutes of baking.

Let cool and serve. We had guacamole, sour cream, jalapenos, shredded lettuce and tortilla chips with it.

It was VERY tasty.

So today is my Birthday Eve…or you can call it Sparkle Eve. Today also happens to be National Jewel Day.

Is this a coincidence? I think not! As my friend Beth said, “Sparkle begets Sparkle!” Here’s hoping there’s a myriad of jewels and sparkle in your future!!

See y’all tomorrow….!
