Chile-Stuffed Cheeseburger

by MFPS Team on May 25,2015 - Comments Off

Here is goey cheese-stuffed burger that is perfect for a cookout.

The gooey filling for these juicy burgers was inspired by the Mexican dip chile con queso, made with melted cheese and roasted chiles.

Chile-Stuffed Cheeseburger

Chile-Stuffed Cheeseburger

Ingredients

  • 4 chiles—2 Anaheims and 2 jalapeños
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, unpeeled
  • 4 ounces shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 4 kaiser rolls, split
  • Lettuce leaves, sliced onion and tomato, mayonnaise and ketchup, for serving

Instructions

  1. 1. Light a grill. Rub the chiles with olive oil. Thread the jalapeños and garlic onto a skewer and grill until charred all over. Using tongs, repeat with the Anaheims. Peel the chiles and discard the stems and seeds. Peel the garlic. Chop the chiles and garlic and transfer to a bowl. Fold in the cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  2. 2. Cut eight 6-inch squares of wax paper; divide the beef among them. Pat each portion into a 5-inch round, a little thicker in the center. Using a 1/4 cup measure, mound one-fourth of the cheese mixture in the centers of 4 patties. Top with the remaining patties; press the edges to seal. Flatten the centers so that the burgers are even. Brush with oil and season with salt and pepper. Brush the cut sides of the rolls with oil.
  3. 3. Lightly oil the grate. Grill the burgers over a hot fire, turning once, about 7 minutes for medium to medium-rare meat. Toast the kaiser rolls. Place the burgers on the rolls and top with lettuce leaves, onion and tomato. Serve with mayonnaise and ketchup.

by MFPS Team on May 1,2015 - Comments Off

Today’s is National Chocolate Parfait Day!! Order a parfait in France and you’ll get frozen custard, lightened with whipped cream. In Britain and the U.S., a parfait is the layered treat we’ve come to love.

Creamy parfaits are perfect for any time of the day. Try one with fresh fruit and yogurt for breakfast or with decadent chocolate and whipped cream for dessert.

This lush dessert layers peanut butter cream with whipped cream and chocolate pudding—a simple and crave-worthy combination for all ages.

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Parfaits

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Parfaits

Ingredients

  • 1 c. heavy (whipping) cream
  • 0.75 c. peanut butter chips
  • 1.50 c. prepared chocolate pudding
  • Garnish: whipped cream and peanut butter chips

Instructions

  1. Heat 1?2 cup cream in a medium glass bowl in microwave until steaming hot. Add chips; stir with a whisk until melted and smooth. Whisk in remaining cream. Refrigerate until cold.
  2. Beat with mixer just until soft peaks form (don't overbeat).
  3. Spread 1 heaping Tbsp peanut butter mousse into bottom of each of 8 small (about 1?2 cup capacity) stemmed glasses. Spread with 1 heaping Tbsp chocolate pudding. Repeat layers once. Garnish and serve, or cover and refrigerate (without garnish) up to 1 day.
  4. Different Takes: Replace peanut butter chips with butterscotch chips. Instead of layering in glasses, spoon alternating dollops into small dessert bowls, then swirl mixtures together with the tip of a knife. Sprinkle crumbled chocolate wafer cookies between layers and on top.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Enchiladas

by MFPS Team on May 1,2015 - Comments Off

Here is a variation on Enchiladas that you can try for weeknight dinners. Put a creamy, bacon-filled twist on chicken enchiladas for a break from a traditional recipe.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Enchiladas

Chicken Bacon Ranch Enchiladas

Ingredients

    For Enchiladas
  • 4 cups shredded deli rotisserie chicken
  • 9 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
  • 1 packet (1 oz) ranch dressing & seasoning mix
  • 1 pouch (8 oz) Old El Paso™ roasted tomato Mexican cooking sauce
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese (8 oz)
  • 20 Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for soft tacos & fajitas (6 inch)
  • For Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
  • 2 tablespoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Garnishes, as desired
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • Chopped fresh tomatoes
  • Chopped red onion

Instructions

  1. 1.Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish and 8-inch square (2-quart) baking dish.
  2. 2. In large bowl, mix chicken, half of the crumbled bacon, 1 tablespoon of the ranch dressing & seasoning mix, the cooking sauce, and 1 cup of the cheese; mix well. Divide mixture among tortillas, and roll up, placing seam side down in baking dishes. Set aside. If you want to freeze the smaller baking dish of enchiladas at this point, cover the baking dish with foil, and label before placing in the freezer. Use within 1 month.
  3. 3. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook onion in oil until softened. Add chilies, and cook until most of the liquid from chilies evaporates. Stir in flour. Slowly add chicken broth, stirring constantly to prevent lumps.
  4. 4. Once broth is incorporated, cook another minute or until slightly thickened. Stir in sour cream and remaining ranch dressing & seasoning mix, and simmer 1 minute.
  5. 5. Remove from heat, and pour over enchiladas. If baking both baking dishes, pour the sauce over both; otherwise, pour all of it into the 13x9-inch dish. (To make just enough for the smaller pan of enchiladas later, divide the recipe for the sauce in half, ratios in the tips section below). Top with remaining cheese and bacon.
  6. 6. Bake about 20 minutes until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling. Cool 5 minutes before serving with garnishes.
