Niffy # 50 and Dinner in a Jiffy

This is my 50th blog post! How fun! I didn't make anything for dinner tonight because Jeffrey has been on set till 10 every night and I had my Beth Moore bible study tonight, so I ate leftovers. Here is the dinner I made Tuesday. I promise for my 100th blog posting I will make something really special. I want to thank you for reading the blog. As you can see at the bottom I have had almost 1,500 page views! Now I know most of them are from family who are catching up with us, and that is exactly what this blog is for, but I actually have had people from all over the world looking at it! This Statcounter website allows me to see what city, state and country most of my viewers are from. Every once in a while it just says United States, but most of the time I can see the city. I have people reading from states that I know no one in...crazy huh? Crazy cool I must say! I hope you are enjoying the recipes, please someone write a comment if you make them, I really want to know if you like what I am making and if you have any suggestions for other recipes I might like...I always like the imput. Thank you again for tuning in, I will continue writing. XOXO!

Tuesday night I had bible study and needed a quick dinner. I still had two of the meals in a bag that Mommasita (from now on Michelle, Jeffrey's mom is going to be called Mommasita on the blog) gave me in my stocking. The one I decided to make was the Chicken and Rice Casserole Mix. I really wasn't expecting it to be very exciting, but I willing to try it. I was pleasantly surprised, it was so yummy! I definitely recommend this dish if you are ever at a fair that is selling the Company's Comin' meals. Or if you feel like ordering some meals click on this link.

Chicken and Rice Casserole
Chicken and Rice Casserole mix
4 cups milk
1 cup sour cream
1 can Rotel
1 can chicken
Grated cheese (not pictured)

Mix rice and seasoning packets with the milk in a saucepan and cook until it comes to a roaring boil.

Turn off the heat and cover with a lid. Set your timer for 10 minutes.

Remove the lid and mix in sour cream, rotel and chicken.

Pour into an 8x8 baking dish.

Cover with shredded cheese. I used Colby Jack.

Cook on 350 for 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

I also make some homemade chips to go with the casserole. I wanted a little crunch!
Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan and cook corn tortillas until golden on each side.
Drain on paper towls and salt.
