Pizza Dip

Hey everyone! I hope everyone has had a great week/weekend. I have a really great recipe for you guys today. It’s super easy and really delicious. My mom used to make this during football season and I figured since Labor day is tomorrow and most people will be having a cookout, this recipe is perfect. You’ll only need 5 ingredients, too. How awesome is that?

So here’s what you’ll need

Ingredients:

  • Cream cheese, 1 block
  • Pizza sauce
  • Pepperoni
  • Black olives, sliced
  • Shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • Fritos Scoops

Directions: In a small rectangular Pyrex dish spread cream cheese into an even layer to coat the bottom of the dish. Pour enough pizza sauce on top of that layer to coat. Sprinkle a generous amount of mozzarella cheese on top of the pizza sauce layer. Layer pepperoni in even lines on top of the mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle black olives and top with more mozzarella cheese. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Serve HOT!

If you’d like, you can sprinkle basil, oregano and garlic salt on the top of the dip. It adds a really great Italian flavor to the dip.

This recipe goes best with scoop style Fritos. I’ve tried tortilla chips but they break too easily. This recipe is super easy and so freakin’ tasty!

Enjoy, Happy Kitchening and have a safe Labor Day!

Easy Sinless Enchiladas

Happy Sunday everyone! This is another “Comfort Food Sunday” post and I know you’re going to love it. These enchiladas are HEALTHY! I’m also giving you the recipe for my famous salsa. Why is it famous? Because I said so. Ask anyone of my friends who have tried this salsa and they’ll tell you that it deserves a Nobel Peace Prize. If I catch you calling this recipe your own or putting other ingredients in it just to “spice it up a little”, I will tell you that you will regret your decision… and you will!

So here’s the recipe for the Enchiladas. Did I mention they’re sinless? And also vegetarian?

Cheesy No Sin Enchiladas

Ingredients

  • 8-12 low fat flour tortillas
  • 8 oz block low fat cream cheese
  • 2 cups low fat cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup sliced green onions

What you’ll need: Large mixing bowl, cooking spray, medium Pyrex casserole dish.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese and green onions in a large bowl together. Spoon mixture onto tortilla and wrap tight. You should spoon out enough to fill enchilada. You’ll have too much left over if you don’t. Fill all tortillas and wrap them tight and lay them flat in a medium Pyrex casserole dish.

Now, here’s where the fun comes in, and also why I’m giving you my recipe for salsa…

Mekenzie’s Famous Salsa

Ingredients

  • 1 can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 jar sliced jalapenos
  • garlic salt

What you’ll need: Food processor and fork.

Directions

Drain all tomato juice and fill food processor with 5-6 whole peeled tomatoes. Run the food processor to chop up tomatoes. Add two fork-fulls of jalapenos. Trust me on this one. Sprinkle garlic salt over the top, enough to coat the top layer. Again, trust me on this one. Run the food processor until mixture is chunky but smooth.

When you’re done mixing the salsa, pour over the top of enchiladas. Pour enough to coat. Sprinkle remaining cheddar cheese over the top of the salsa and enchiladas. Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes and enjoy!

WARNING: THESE ARE HIGHLY ADDICTIVE AND CAN CAUSE DELIRIOUS THOUGHTS. But, it’s worth it, because they’re SINLESS!

Enjoy, happy Sunday and HAPPY KITCHENING!
