Taco Soup

1 can of black beans (drained)
2 cans of kidney beans (drained)
2 cans of rotelle tomatoe (lime and cilantro)
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 pkg. ranch dressing seasoning
1 1/2 cup frozen corn
1 lb. ground turkey (cooked and drained)

Combine all ingrediants into a crock pot and cook for a couple of hours. Serve with shredded chedder cheese.
*the recipe calls for 3 cans of beans, it originally called for 1 can black, 1 kidney, 1 navy but I do not care for navy beans*
We also freeze the extras for a later meal.

Parmesan/Pine Nut Chicken

thawed chicken breast
grated parmesan cheese
roughly crushed pine nuts
italian seasoning
salt and pepper
olive oil

In a plate prepare all the dry ingrediants. For two chicken breast this all amounts to about 1/2 cup, you will have to judge. Roll thawed chicken breast in the mixture coating both sides. Place chicken in skillet of hot oil, browning both sides. Preheat oven to 250 and place browned chicken breasts in pan or pyrex dishes and cook until cooked through in the oven.
