http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/buffalo-chicken-mac-and-cheese/d5a9fd21-a136-4b43-baaf-b7ed79b6b38b

 

2 1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
2 cups whole milk
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
Salt to taste
1 cup chopped cooked chicken
1 stalk celery, cut in half lengthwise, then cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (1 oz)
1/4 cup Buffalo wing sauce

Better cheddar dip

http://raisedonaroux.com/bettercheddar/

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 pound sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded
3 green onions, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup mayonnaise (I had to use more than this to get a decent consistency)
1 1/2 teaspoons Creole mustard (approximated with whole grain mustard and horseradish)
1 1/2 teaspoons yellow mustard
1/2 teaspoon Creole seasoning (I used Emeril’s recipe)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pinch of cayenne pepper

 

Maybe try food processing the seasonings with the mayonnaise and half the cheddar, then stirring the rest of the stuff in? Consistency was a little too chunky.

Taco Chicken Bowls

Original Recipe

20140616-203529-74129238.jpg

Pretty good. Makes ~11 servings. Use spicier salsa, the crockpot mellows it out.

 

Ingredients
  • 2 lbs. chicken breasts
  • 1 (16 oz.) jar salsa
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained
  • ½ lb. (8 oz.) frozen corn
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • ½ Tbsp cumin
  • ½ Tbsp minced garlic
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • to taste cracked pepper
  • 2 cups dry rice
  • 8 oz. shredded cheddar
  • ½ bunch cilantro (optional)
Instructions
  1. Add everything except the rice, cheese, and cilantro to the slow cooker along with ¼ cup of water (for good measure). Give everything a good stir and make sure the chicken is covered in the mixture.
  2. Secure the lid on your slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hrs.
  3. Near the end of the cooking time, cook the two cups of rice according to the package directions (Bring the rice and 3 cups of water to a boil in a medium pot with a lid in place, as soon as it reaches a boil, reduced the heat to low and let simmer for 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving).
  4. After 8 hours of cooking, carefully remove the lid of the slow cooker. Stir with a fork to shred the chicken (it should be super tender and will shred easily). Build the taco bowls by placing rice on the bottom, then the taco chicken mix, shredded cheese and fresh cilantro.
