Grab some BBQ sauce!!

BBQ Chicken Pizza

2/3 c. BBQ sauce
1/2 lb. of diced cooked chicken breast (I used a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket to save time and plus they have good flavor)
1 bag shredded cheese- the pizza specific kind tastes the best
1/2 a medium red onion sliced
1 package refrigerated pizza dough

Toss diced chicken with 2 Tbsp. of BBQ sauce and set aside. Shape dough to fill the sheet pan, about a 15 by 10-inch rectangle. Spread remaining barbecue sauce evenly over pizza dough. Sprinkle cheese, onions, and chicken over top. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese bubbles.

BBQ Cups

1 ground beef, lean
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1 can refrigerator biscuits
.75 cup cheddar cheese, grated

Brown meat, drain. Add the BBQ sauce and set aside. Place biscuits in ungreased muffin cups, pressing dough up sides of cup. Spoon meat mixture into cups and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 400 for about 12 minutes. If you like a clean oven, put a pan underneath just in case they spill over a bit while baking.

Yummy Truffles

1 package of oreos (any kind, but mint is fablulous!)
1 8oz. cream cheese
Smash up the oreos and mix with the cream cheese. Roll into balls and then freeze. Once frozen dip in melted bakers chocolate. For a professional look squiggle with chocolate of an alternating color. (if you want to use double stuffed oreos cut cream cheese to 6 ounces)

Enchilada Soup

Enchilada Soup
1 large can enchilada sauce (rosarita is my fave)
2 cups cooked chicken (shredded or cubed)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can chicken broth
1 can beef broth
1 small can chopped olives
1 onion chopped
1 green chili pepper chopped (fine)
2 cups shredded cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
How to make:
In a large pot combine enchilada sauce, soups, chicken, olives, onion, chili pepper and bring to a boil (stirring regularly). Lower heat and add sour cream and cheese immediately, stir to make sure it all melts and blends.
You can add and subtract just about anything but the soups, and enchilada sauce to your preference. You can add things like corn, black beans....etc. If you would like to thicken it up at boiling add a little instant potato in and stir.
Serve with crushed tortilla chips and enjoy!!!! It is one of my favorites!
