II. MEXICAN LASAGNA
1.5 lbs of ground beef An onion, dicedA bell pepper dicedCan of diced tomato2 bags of shredded cheeseA jar of salsaA bag of tortilla chipsBrown the beef in a pan, use spices to taste.Layer that stuff in glass pan thing, you’ll end up with a lot of layers, and this probablyenough for two of those dishes. Make sure the top layer is cheese, and the bottomlayer isn’t cheeseCook it at 350 for like 20 minutes.
III. LAMB AND SOUP
Leeks, Potatoes, Garlic, Pepper, Lemon Juice, Chicken broth, a little oil, some butter,and some fruit juice to drink while you work.You will also need a nice clean stove with a small pot, a larger pot, and a pan. Preheatthe oven to about 250 degrees. Okay, it's time to start.If you have large pieces you can make very small incisions on the side into the fat,like on a rack of lamb, and insert slices of roasted garlic. I've topped it with rosemary,Lemon Juice, some chicken stock to keep it moist and coarsely ground pepper. Wrapit up and slow cook it for a little while until you get the doneness you want (I had tocook it to well done because my roommates hate medium rare, sob!) Now for the leeks.The good thing about the leeks I buy is they come in packs of 3, usually 1$ per leek.If you're making the potato leek soup by itself, it's usually 2$ a person at the most.This recipe I used 6$ worth of leeks, 1$ worth of potatoes, 1.69$ for the box of stock and about 50cents for the milk. Butter and garlic maybe 50cents combined. It made*alot*.As for the leeks, I roughly chop them up after washing them to this point, where thewhite inside starts to turn dark green.Cook the Leeks in a pot with butter until it's all soft. Alternatively, you could cook itin oil until clear, but that gives it a different taste, and I like the creaminess of the better better.Add some more Stock and lots of pepper and other spices you'd like and stir, letting itsimmer away.This is the point you want to stop pouring milk/stock/liquid into it. I went too far andhad to drain some out (sob) but if you use less than this it will be more of a pasty,really thick soup. I know one of my friend's likes making a cold version of this for summer with lots of milk in it.And finally, put it all together with some buttered sour dough bread, cranberryraspberry juice and a few roommates out in the dining room.2
