Melt 2 tsps of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Place a tortilla in the skillet, sprinkle evenly with cheese, then top with some of the bean mixture.   Place another tortilla on top, cook until golden then flip and cook on the other side.  ( I ususally just fold one tortilla in half and flip)

Taco fixings (ground turkey, chili beans, cheddars, corn chips, etc) over salad/lettuce is my go-to meal!  It's almost always what I eat when Jean's not home for dinner, and once in a while even when he is!  We love it here :)

Oh ok, I make this all the time. We call it taco salad. I cook the burger and add in taco seasoning. Let cool and add to a bowl with lettuce, tomato, onion, green pepper, kidney beans, Cheese and cheap Catalina type of dressing. Mix it and before serving crush up a cheap bag of doritos and mix in. Yummy. I need to make this one more time before summer is done.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Ingredients:

3-4 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
2 cans cream of chicken soup, undiluted
16 oz sour cream
2 cans chopped green chilies (I use a 4 oz can)
16 oz shredded cheddar cheese (or more if you want)
1 package flour tortillas (soft taco size)

Combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream and green chilies.

Spread a little of the sour cream mixture on the bottom of a 9x13 pan.

On a tortilla, spread some of the sour cream mixture, some of the shredded chicken and some of the cheese.  Roll up and place seam side down in the pan.  Repeat until all the tortillas have been used.

Spread the remaining sour cream mixture on top of the rolled up enchiladas.  Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.  Bake at 400* for 20 minutes or until warmed through.

Chicken Ranch Pasta Salad

1 (12 ounce) package uncooked tri-colored rotini pasta
10  slices bacon
1  cup mayonnaise
1 (1 ounce) packet dry ranch dressing mix
1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
1⁄2 cup milk (more, if needed)
1  large tomatoes, chopped or 15 grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 (3 ounce) can sliced black olives
1  cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
 salt and pepper

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Stir in rotini pasta and cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until al dente, drain.
Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook until evenly brown. Drain and chop.
In a large bowl, mix mayonnaise, ranch dressing mix and garlic powder. Stir in milk until smooth. Add bacon, tomato, black olives and cheese and toss to coat with dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. Toss with additional milk if the salad seems a little dry.

This is the basic recipe.  I add 1 large chicken breast (shredded or chopped).  You can tweak it to suit your tastes, such as using different pastas, leaving out olives, etc.  I don't usually put the bacon in, but if I do, I add a little bacon bits.
