Wet Burritos

Wet Burrito

This week for taco Tuesday I made one of my favorite Mexican dishes, wet burritos. These wet burritos are stuffed with ground beef and beans, drenched in a delicious enchilada sauce, covered with ooey-gooey melted cheese and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and sour cream

 

Browning the meat

 

In a large size fry pan, I browned 2 pounds of ground beef. Seasoned it with Lawry’s seasoning(this is a staple in my kitchen) black pepper and my homemade taco seasoning.

When the ground beef is cooked all the way, drain off the extra grease you might have, I normally have a can under the sink just for this.

 

It’s all about the sauce

For my enchilada sauce, I mixed together 1 can of tomato sauce, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can mild enchilada sauce, 1 small can of green chiles. The enchilada and chilies will give this sauce a little kick, you can always use hot enchilada sauce or add a couple dashes of hot sauce if you like spicier foods. My family doesn’t like too many spicy foods.

Sometimes I prefer to use foil pans. You know like when there is cheese involved, the foil pans help with clean up. I have a stock pile in the pantry. I do put a cookie sheet under the foil pan just for support. So the burritos don’t stick to the bottom of the pan I coat the bottom of my foil pan with a thin layer of the sauce.

Time to assemble the inside, on the tortilla shell I spread 1 tablespoon of refried beans, about 1/2 cup of my prepared ground beef, and a sprinkle of taco cheese. You can always add more of each ingredient if you like. Then roll them up and place them in the foil pan.

 

Bake Time

Once I have my pan filled with the burritos I cover every inch of them with my enchilada sauce and top that with shredded taco cheese.Then I cover my foil pan with aluminum foil and place it in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45 minutes to an hour or until done. 

 

The Goodness

Just look at that delicious wet burrito topped with lettuce, tomatoes and a dollop of sour cream ~ Jenny

Bedroom Makeover

My youngest daughter is a girly- girly, she loves pink, clothes, flowers, music, drawing, dolls, and did I mention pink. With that in mind, I knew that shabby chic would be the way to go for her bedroom make over. 

 

Desk Before
Desk before

I found this cute desk at an estate sale. I knew right away that I wanted to paint it white using chalk paint, then distressed it some, seal it with wax and stained the top a dark color. We also replaced the drawer pulls to go along with the shabby chic look I was after.

For my first time painting furniture, I’m happy with the way it turned out. 

 

I thought she could use this desk also as a vanity so I needed to find a mirror to go along with. Which I found this perfect oval mirror at another estate sale.

Again I painted it white with the chalk paint and distressed it some and sealed with the wax. I used a floral garland for both the tie backs for her curtains and as an accent piece above the mirror.

Just like the half bath and the rest of the house her room was this brown taupe color. Behr paint is my favorite paint to use when doing any color changes in the house. I picked out a color called Moxie in eggshell enamel, the eggshell paint will be easier for cleaning up. 

 

 

Shabby Chic Bedding

Needing a new bedspread I found this sweet little quilt at Target, I have a pillow sham ordered just waiting for it to come in. I made the blue pillow case a few months ago, it really doesn’t go well with the room but she likes it so it shall stay. She was also in need of a new bed shirt that I also found at Target, I love the little eyelet detail. 

 

 

 

Shabby Curtains

I don’t know about you all but buying curtains always bother’s me, I know what I want but never can find the exact ones anywhere. Well, this time it was the exception, I wanted silky pale pink curtains and that’s what I found. The tie backs like I said was a floral garland that I cut down to the size I wanted.

With some finishing touches like flowers and a couple lace dollies, little Lady was very pleased with how her room turned out.

Strawberry Cheesecake Bars

Our family had been invited to a cookout at our friend’s house a couple weekends ago. She had asked me to bring one of my delicious desserts, oh the pressure was on. After looking on Pinterest and not finding what I was looking for, I got thinking about some of my families favorites desserts, Cheesecake and Strawberry pie. Why not put them together Strawberry Cheesecake Bars. 

Making the Crust

The first thing I did was spray a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray and set aside. Then I preheated the oven to 375 degrees. Moving on to make the crust I put 2 packages of graham crackers into my food processorpulsing the Grahams until they were a fine crumble.

I then added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 cup walnuts into the food processor, once again pulsing until a fine crumble. You can always leave out the walnuts if you would like. Next, I added 1 stick of melted butter and turned the food processor on until combined.  Finally, when everything was combined I pressed the crust into my 9×13 baking pan, then set this aside.

Cheesecake filling

While I was making the crust I had placed the 3 packages of cream cheese on the top of my stove. Being that the oven was on, the heat will help soften the cream cheese. I also do this with butter some times.

Mixing Cheesecake Filling
Mixing Cheesecake Filling

Using my mixer I placed the three packages of softened cream cheese into the bowl and started the mixer on low, slowly adding 1 cup of Sugar.  Once the cream cheese and sugar were combined I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 4 tablespoons of flour, 2 eggs, and 1 egg yolk once these ingredients were combined I slowly added the 1/4 cup milk. Continuing to mix on low speed until the cream cheese mixture is smooth looking. The flour will help with thickening the mixture.  Every now and again the sides of the mixer will need to be scrapped down with a rubber spatula. 

 

Baking time

Time to add the cheesecake filling into the crust, I then placed the cheesecake into a 375-degree oven for 45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. When the cheesecake is finished baking, you will want to let it cool completely before starting the jello topping.

Strawberry Topping
This is how I made the cheesecake even better, I made my strawberry pie recipe and added it to the top of the cheesecake.  The first thing to do is cut the tops of the strawberries off, then they need to be washed and sliced. Placing the berries into a bowl I sat them aside until I needed them.  I believe I used about 2 cups of berries, you could use more or less if you would like to. 
Strawberry Jello
Strawberry Jello

Grabbing a medium size saucepan, I  then combined 1 small package of strawberry jello, 1 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup cornstarch. Next, I  added 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and 1 1/2 cups of cold water to the jello mixture. This will need to come to a boil and continue to boil for 5 minutes; stirring the whole time. Because the jello will bubble up and pop while it’s boiling, you might want to wear an oven mitt.  Once you have boiled the jello mixture for 5 minutes (hopefully you didn’t get burned like I did) gently fold in the 2 cups of strawberries.

Finishing Steps

With the strawberries and jello combined, I then poured this mixture onto the cheesecake. Placing the strawberry cheesecake into the refrigerator to set up. Once the jello has set up, I then added whipped topping to the top of the strawberry jello. Now it’s time to cut into squares and serve. Everyone that had a piece of my strawberry cheesecake bars really enjoyed them. Every time my son has a piece of this he tells me how much he likes it.
