Making buffalo chicken pizza is a favorite of mine.  This recipe is exactly that but rolled all up into a loaf of goodness!

The best part is that it is as easy as throwing a bunch of toppings onto some pizza dough!


Ingredients:

2 breasts cooked and chopped chicken
2 cups shredded cheese (I used mexican blend, because I always have it on hand and some mozzarella I had as well)
1 can pillsbury pizza dough
1/2 cup Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
1/3 cup ranch dressing

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees

Once you have chopped and cooked your chicken add 1/4 cup buffalo sauce to the pan and let it simmer all together for a few minutes.

Press our your pizza dough onto a baking sheet and spread it with the rest of your buffalo sauce and ranch dressing.  I love condiments so I really just eye-balled it on how much I was in the mood for.


Top with chopped chicken and your shredded cheeses.


Now you are ready to start rollin! (with my homies)

Start at the skinny edge and fold over the dough and keep rolling it until it is in one big loaf.  Make sure to press the edges together as you go to keep from losing any gooey goodness.
I was a bit nervous about halfway through that the dough would start to rip as it was pretty packed with fillings.  But it went completely fine, it was just a bit messy!



Then just pop it in the oven for 30 minutes and you are ready to get your grub on!

This is boyfriend AND roommate approved! 😀


I have been majorly slacking on putting up a new recipe lately.  so I apologize.  Mostly I am just too busy to cook.  But then I realized, that is one of the main points of my blog – that anyone can make time to cook a simple dinner every night.  So I’m trying to prove it  🙂

This was so delicious, I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out but I really loved it.  I had leftovers for a few days, and I seriously ate this for every meal until it was gone!  The more time went on, the better it got as well! I am wishing I could have it as I write this!


Ingredients:

1 1/2 – 2 pounds stew meat, or beef.  Cubed. (I used a super cheap flank and its as still delicious)
2 10 ounce cans enchilada sauce
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 can refried beans
6-8 large flour tortillas
a bag of shredded cheese

Directions:

If you have a crock pot – this is for you.  If you don’t….GET ONE!  It will change your life in the kitchen.  I can’t tell you how many times I throw a bunch of somethings in there before going to work, and come home to have a perfect dinner ready.  Okay, now that I’ve said that — I will give directions for both ways.

Put cubed beef, enchilada sauce and beef bouillon cubes in your crock pot on low for 7-8 hours.  I didn’t think about this until a little last minute, so I put it on high for 4 hours.  Whatever works!

If you don’t have a crock pot you can cook it in a large saucepan.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cover.  Let it cook for probably 2 hours likes that.  I didn’t try this way – so thats a guess on time. but probably close.

Like I said, I put this on the fast track – I didn’t give the meat enough time to flake and shed, but it was delicious no matter what.

Now all you have to do, is warm up your refried beans.  Spread a generous amount of beans on the middle of each tortilla, spoon in the meat mixture, top with shredded cheese, and roll it up!  Top with the sauce from the pan and some shredded cheese.

Put in your oven on broil for a few minutes, until the cheese is melted and enjoy!

I didn’t eat those all, so they were perfectly fine to reheat the next day!  I just kept all the rest of the ingredients on hand, and made one every time I wanted a little lunch or dinner.

YUMMY!!!!
