Buffalo chicken wings with ranch
What you need: chicken wings, Frank's hot sauce, two habanero peppers, one serrano pepper, two cups of 2% greek yogurt, one packet ranch seasoning.
First, take your chicken wings out of the original packaging and into a zip-lock bag. Poor the Frank's hot sauce over the wings, effectively marinating them. You could sauce them immediately before or allow them to soak in for a couple of hours, depending on how much time you have.
Take some aluminum foil and place it on a baking sheet. Use Pam to keep the wings from sticking to the aluminum foil. Bake in an oven for 22 minutes on 375 degrees. After the timer goes off, flip each wing. Bake for another 22 minutes. After this, your wings will be ready.
For the sauce: This is a spicy sauce, so if you prefer something milder, omit the peppers. Using a food processor, chop up two habaneros and one serrano. If you can't find a serrano, half of a jalapeno will suffice. After the peppers are chopped up, poor as much Frank's as desired. The more, the milder your sauce will be. Blend again until you can barely see the pieces of peppers in the sauce.
Mix the wings and the sauce in a bowl. At this point, the wings are ready to serve.
For the ranch: Mix the 2% yogurt and the ranch seasoning in a bowl. This is a healthier alternative to store-bought ranch without sacrificing taste.
What you need: one strip steak, 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 3 tsp olive oil, tortillas, shredded cheese, sliced red onion, sour cream, salsa
Season the strip steak with oregano (add any other spices and seasonings to add flavor). Use one teaspoon of olive oil to cook the steak in a skillet. Turn just once and cook until it looks brown but rare. Cut the steak into strips on a cutting board.
Brush each of the tortillas you are using with the remaining olive oil at your disposal. Place tortillas oil-side down on baking sheets. Using one half of the tortilla, begin with a layer of cheese, steak, onion and then a second layer of cheese. Fold side without ingredients over gently.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and cook each side for five minutes, flipping with a spatula. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
What you need: Velveeta, one can Rotel, one can chili without beans
This is a very simple recipe. Melt all three into a saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Serve with chips.
