My roomie and I love to make these.

ground beef
sour cream
cream of chicken condensed soup
red enchilada sauce (optional)
taco sauce
taco seasoning
canned green chilies
flour tortillas
shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375 fahrenheit

Cook however much ground beef you need to fill however many tortillas you get. After fully cooked, drain the grease. Return to the pan and stir in a little water to get taco seasoning to stick, then add that and the green chilies to taste. In a large bowl add cream of chicken soup and sour cream in an equal amount. Add taco seasoning, taco sauce, and (optional) enchilada sauce to taste.

Line your cooking pan with foil, and (this is important) spray your foil with non stick cooking spray. Lay down a light layer of your soup goo. Add a cooking spoon or so of the goo to your meat and stir together.

Place ground beef in your tortilla and roll up like a burrito, place them in the soup lined pan. Pour remaining soup goo on top, then cover in shredded cheese.

Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. If desired, broil for a short time to crisp the cheese a bit.

Also, these are really good topped with taco sauce, but that's a personal preference.




Moral: God I love these!

Tuesdays with Morrie

So, I finally took the advice of a friend of mine and sat down to read this. I knew going in basically what it was about, so I prepared myself to have a good cry.

I remained strong through it, but I had happened to see in the table of contents that there were 14 Tuesdays written about, with 14 titled something about saying goodbye. I didn't think anything about it until I happen to look up at the chapter title I am on. 9. Oh no, I'm on the 9th Tuesday! But 14 is right around the corner. At this point I begin to get a bit anxious, and the closer it comes, the more upset I'm getting. Then one sentence sets it all off. Morrie tells Mitch that if he had had another son, he would have been proud if he had been it. Annnnd cue the waterworks.

I keep reading, and the chapters are coming faster, the pages fewer as his visits become shorter, and Morrie grows weaker. The final goodbye let loose more tears from my already emotional self. It was a very good book, and I will recommend it to my friends. Just be warned, it will make you cry if you have even a tiny amount of love in you. But sometimes, crying is a good thing.

As Morrie says, "It's ok to cry."
