    Some are in my head, some are from cookbooks I have looked through recently, and some are from magazines. If you want any specific recipes, let me know and I will post them. The tortellini with zuchinni and carrots is posted on this board.

    Alamo City Stew

    2 pounds boneless stew meat, cut into 1 inch pieces
    2 T. Veg oil
    1 10.5 oz can beef broth
    1 cup hot water
    1 8 oz jar picante sauce or homemade salsa
    1 med onion, chopped
    1/4 cup chopped parsley
    1 t salt
    1 t cumin
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 16 oz can chopped tomatoes
    3 med carrots, cut into 1 inch pieces
    2 cups corn kernels (I use frozen)
    2 med zucchini, cut into 1 inch pieces
    1/2 cup cold water
    2 T flour

    In a large dutch oven, with hot oil, brown meat. Add broth, hot water,picante,onion,parsley,salt, cumin, and garlic. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover adn simmer 1 hour until meat is tender. Add tomatoes, carrots, corn and zucchini. Cover and simmer 25 minutes longer until vegetables are tender. In a bowl, mix the cold water and flour until smooth. Stir into stew. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute until thickened.

    Tortillas-I buy ones that are already pressed, but not yet cooked. They are made by a company called "Guerrero". They are raw dough in circles and you just griddle them until they have brown spot on them-sooooo good.

    Pork BBQ on Buns

    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    1/2 cup chopped green pepper
    1/2 ketchup
    1/3 cup water
    2 T. Lemon Juice
    1 T. Brown sugar or Molasses
    1 T. Worcestershire sauce
    1 T. cider vinegar
    1 T. prepared mustard
    salt and pepper to taste
    1.5 pound pork roast

    Place all ingredients except meat in slow cooker, mix well. Place roast on top of sauce, and cook on low 6- 8 hours. Remove meat and shred and return to pot. Pile on toasted buns. Serve with coleslaw and pickles.

    This freezes well.

    Chili Cheese Steaks

    2 pounds round steak, 1 inch thick
    3 T. flour
    2 t. salt
    2 t. chili powder
    1/4 t pepper
    1/4 cup shortening
    2 cups chopped onion
    1 16 oz can chopped tomatoes
    4 oz cheddar cheese, grated

    Preheat oven to 350.

    In a large skillet, brown meat in shortening and place in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Brown onions until tender and stir in remaining ingredients except cheese. Add to meat. Bake for 2 hours. Add grated cheese on top adn bake 5 minutes longer.

    Crockpot Fajita Tacos

    1 cup chopped onions
    2 bell peppers, sliced
    1.5 sliced fajita meat, cut into strips
    2 tsp fajita seasoning
    1/2 t salt
    1 can rotel tomatoes
    12 flour tortillas

    Place all ingredients in slow cooker (except tortillas). Cook 8 hours on low or 5 hours on high.

    Serve in flour tortillas with sourcream, guacamole, grated cheese, and salsa.
