It is my version of Taco Bells Big Beef Meximelt

This makes 4 good sized Meximelts

1 lb ground beef
2 T. Fiesta Ranch Powder (Hidden Valley Ranch)
1/3 can of Rotel (use left over Rotel to make Juevos Rancheros)
1-2 T water
4 LC Tortillas
8 oz Mexican shredded cheese

Brown ground beef, then add Fiesta Ranch, Rotel and 1-2 T water. Cover and let simmer 10-15 min on Med-Low. Put 1 oz cheese on each tortilla, top with meat, top with 1/2 oz cheese fold one side of tortilla in and top with other 1/2 oz cheese then fold last flap over. Place a vegetable can ontop of the Meximelt so the cheese melts and holds it together (you can skip this, but it holds it together nicely). Enjoy! Hope that helps!

It's very simple...

1 c. LC ketchup
1/3 c. SF honey
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 cloves minced garlic

Whisk together and tah-dah! Yummy BBQ sauce. It makes alot, but it keeps well in the fridge in an air tight container for up to a month.

So go BBQ something tasty and come back and post what you thought of the sauce and of course pics of your food!

Mindy

Well here is to hoping you get loads of money back .

Second, if you want out of jury duty, when they ask you if you can be fair, say "Sure no problem. I know that if they weren't guilty they wouldn't be in court."

I want to go into the interview and if they say, "what do you think of...." every time I want to answer, "I'd hit it" and see if I can get the boot.

Ok, for this dish I spun off of Linda Sue's ASIAN PORK & CABBAGE SKILLET DINNER and created a Teriyaki stir-fry. OMgosh was this yummy!!!


Mindy's Teriyaki Stirfry (with thanks to Linda Sue)

1 pound ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 T. of SF honey
Pinch crushed red pepper
16 ounce bag shredded cabbage with carrots
2 eggs

Brown the ground beef with the garlic. Add in the cabbage. Mix together the soy sauce, the honey and the red pepper and pour over cabbage. Stir it all together, cover and cook on medium for 10 minutes. Then push all to the back of the skillet and crack two eggs into pan and scramble, then stir into dish. Then serve and enjoy!

I made these tonight in a mini muffin pan. OHHHHHHHHHHH SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!! I did use the Vanilla Body fortress brand. My changes are in bold. Thank you MsWoods!

Whey Protein Not Cake and Not Brownies!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I decided to make a separate thread here for this because it has taken over someones thread in the main lobby.

2 eggs
3 scoops whey protein powder (vanilla)
1 stick butter
1/2 cup sweetener (I use liquid sweet n low) I used 1t. ez sweets and 1/2 t. stevia liquid. They came out a bit too sweet.

Melt butter, add eggs, whey protein powder and sweetener. Mix well and put in a 6x6 baking dish. Cook on 325 for about 15-20 minutes. Makes 9 servings. Each serving has about 1g carb per piece, depending on the whey protein powder you use. I baked them for 8 1/2 minutes in a mini muffin pan and they were perfect. My pan is a 24 count putting one teaspoon of batter into each cup. Making each muffin just under 0.4 carbs.

Counts per batch: Cal:1347 Fat:364 Carb:8.8
Per 1/9th: Cal:150 Fat:40.4 Carb: 1

For the chocolate:
2 eggs
2.5 scoops whey protein powder
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 stick butter
1/2 cup sweetener

Per Batch: Cal:1322 Fat:364 Carb:13.3
Per 1/9th: Cal:147 Fat:40.4 Carb:1.5

Edited to add: If you want these less cake like and more hard and portable and "bar like" only use 1 egg. The counts for the recipe this way is:
Per Recipe: Cal:872 Fat:312.8 Carb:8.8
Per 1/9th: Cal:96.9 Fat:34.76 Carb:1

I used the Body Fortress brand at Walmart but if you used Jay Robb or another lower carb brand they wouldn't even have that many carbs! The Jay Robb brand would reduce the carbs from 8.8 to 3.8.

These carb counts are using liquid sweet and low (not 1/2 cup but the equivelant). If you use granular sweetener the carb counts will go up.
