Mix left over baked chicken with chopped green pepper, chopped onion and chopped grapes and mayo.

Taco soup (from freezer)
Brown 1 pound lean ground meat, add to crock pot. Add taco seasoning, 1 can whole corn drained, 1 can red kidney beans drained, 1 can black beans drained, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can water and 1 package of ranch dry mix. stir well. Cook on low for 8 hours. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips. This can be doubled. Left overs freeze well.

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together 4 Oz's of low fat cream cheese, 2 tablespoons margarine, 1/2 chopped onion,some chopped celery, salt and pepper. Add chopped chicken and a tablespoon or two of dry ranch mix. Stir well. Separate reduced fat crescent roll dough into 4 rectangle and seal perforations. Spoon 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture onto each rectangle. Pull sides over and seal the ends. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 20 minutes.

I could use your help. I am trying to survey as many women as possible to find out what ten struggles they face as a Christian woman. If you have a few minutes, I would love your input on my blog in regards to the ten struggles that Christian women face. Thank you!

Please pass the information on to your friends as well.

Bobbie, I love your blog.
Sharing favorite recipes is great fun, and me being the "recipe buff" that I am, I will be back to visit often.

I also enjoy reading your comments on Rachel's Bible study blog. We have such a wonderul group of gals in our group. I'll bet that a lot of lasting friendships will be formed as well as many "hurting hearts" healed.

I actually clicked on your name to see if you were my youngest daughter joining in the Bible study and planning to surprise me!LOL

Glad I checked it out and found your delightful blog.

Blessings. Karyl <*////><
