15-Minute Taco In A Pan

1 lb. extra lean ground beef
1-1/2 cups water
1 pkg. (35 g) taco seasoning mix
1-1/2 cups instant white rice, uncooked
1 cup KRAFT Tex Mex Shredded Cheese (or just regular grated cheese is fine)
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 cups chopped tomatoes

1. BROWN meat in large nonstick skillet; drain.
2. ADD water and seasoning mix; stir. Bring to boil.
3. STIR in rice. Sprinkle with cheese; cover. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 min. Top with lettuce and tomatoes.




-1 large broiler/fryer whole chicken (as big as your crock will fit)


-thyme, rosemary, sage, parsley




-fresh ground pepper


-40 cloves UNPEELED garlic


-2 stalks celery, washed and cut into 3 inch pieces


-baguette or french bread slices, toasted


Place the celery slices on the bottom of the crock. Season the chicken in and out with salt, pepper, and generously with the herbs. Place on top of the celery. Place the cloves all around and on top of the chicken. Cover and cook on low 8 hours.


Remove chicken and celery to serving platter. Remove garlic to small bowl.




-1/4 cup cream


-2 – 3 tablespoons cornstarch


-salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


Skim the fat off the liquid in the crockpot. Turn to high. Add the cream. Mix cornstarch with a small amount of water until smooth and add to liquid. Stir, cover and heat until thickened. You can pour some on the chicken and put the rest in a gravy boat. We served it with noodles.


The roasted garlic can be squished out of it’s skins onto the toasted bread. We had enough left over to make yummy roasted garlic mashed potatoes the next day.
