1 cucumber, diced small
½ onion (white or red), diced small
2 Tbsp. jalapenos, chopped
¼ c. fresh dill, chopped
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. garlic powder

Directions: 
1.  Peel avocados, remove seed, and scoop flesh into a medium bowl.
2.  Squeeze juice from the lime over the avocados.  Mash together.
3.  Add avocado mixture and all other ingredients to food processor. 
4.  Pulse until thoroughly mixed.
5.  Serve with your favorite chips.

Butter Pecan Banana Bread



I'm always looking for ways to use ripe bananas.  How about you?  My girls love to have fresh banana bread for breakfast or a snack.  Being a working mom, I don't have time to spend hours in the kitchen.  This recipe is simple and tasty.  You will keep this one on hand for the next time those bananas are sitting on the counter needing to be used.
Makes 2 loaves


Ingredients:
1 butter pecan cake mix
3 very ripe bananas
1 stick butter, melted
3 eggs


Directions:
  1. Mash the bananas, mix in butter.
  2. Add cake mix and eggs, stir until well blended.
  3. Pour into greased loaf pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 - 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  4. Let cool completely.  Removed from pan, slice, and serve.

Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

 


I go home from work for lunch quite often.  To be able to start dinner in the middle of the day to be ready when we get home is nice for a busy family.  This recipe is something I came up with after scouring our fridge and freezer for meal ideas.  My girls loved a Mexican alternative to cooking chicken in the crock pot.  I think you will too.  Give it a try!

Ingredients:


2 lbs. chicken, still frozen
1 c. salsa of your choice
2 pkg. taco seasoning
1 red pepper, sliced
1 yellow pepper, sliced
4 green onions, diced


Directions: 
  1. Place chicken in crock pot.  
  2. Cover with salsa.
  3. Sprinkle with seasoning.
  4. Lay peppers and onions on top.
  5. Cover and cook on high for 4 - 6 hours.
  6. Remove chicken from crock pot, leave juice.  
  7. Shred chicken and serve with peppers in tortillas.  Top with your choice of cheese, sour cream, olives, and guacamole.
