Sweet and Spicy

3 Mar

In typical female style I couldn’t decide between something spicy or sweet so I will share both with you.  Can you decide?

 

Enchilada Meatballs

Enchilada Meatballs

Ingredients

  • 2 cups crumbled cornbread
  • 1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck
  • 1 (10 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cornbread, half of the enchilada sauce, half of the cheese, and the salt. Crumble the beef into the mixture, and blend well using your hands. Shape meat into 1 inch balls, and place on a 10×15 inch jellyroll pan, or any cookie sheet with sides to catch the grease.
  3. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes in the preheated oven, until the meat is cooked through.
  4. While the meatballs are cooking, warm the tomato sauce and remaining enchilada sauce in a saucepan. Remove the meatballs from the pan using a slotted spoon, and place in a serving dish. Pour the heated sauce over them, and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Provide toothpicks for serving.

(Just a side note and I haven’t tried it but think this would make a great meatloaf)

Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

Ingredients

2 1/3 c. flour
2/3 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. butter
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 (12 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips
1 c. chopped nuts – I used pecans, but walnuts or macadamias would be great, too.
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
10 oz. Skor toffee bits

Directions

Stir together flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg and mix well. Stir in 1 1/2 c. chocolate chips and all of nuts. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of this mixture and press remaining into a greased 9×13 inch pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 350. Pour milk over hot crust and top with 1 1/2 cups toffee bits. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over top plus remaining chips. Bake 25-30 more minutes. Top with remaining toffee bits.
Bon Appetit,
