It's Monday Again!

Here's my menu for this week:
Monday: Steak and Potatoes
Tuesday: Taco Salad
Wednesday: Southern Hamburger Pie
Thursday: White Chicken Chili
Friday: Omelets

Here are a couple recipes:

Southern Hamburger Pie (This recipe is a favorite of my husbands that my mom found in a First Place cookbook. It was originally a low-fat recipe and tastes good that way, so feel free to substitute with low-fat ingredients.)

1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp cumin (or more to taste)
salt and pepper (to taste)
4 oz cream cheese (cut into chunks)
1 Tbsp flour
1 small can chopped green chiles (drained)
1 cup cottage cheese
1 egg
red pepper flakes
1 can refrigerated biscuits (I'm going to omit this part in the interest of low-carbing.)

Brown ground beef and onion. Drain fat. Add cumin, salt, pepper, and cream cheese and stir over medium-low heat until the cream cheese melts. Add flour and chiles.

Arrange biscuits in the bottom of a greased pie plate (or not if you don't want to like us, but it's really yummy with the biscuit crust.) Spread meat mixture on top. In a small bowl, mix the cottage cheese and egg. Spread on top of meat mixture. Sprinkle with paprika and red pepper flakes.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30-45 minutes, until top is set and biscuits are brown.

White Chicken Chili Deliciously simple!
1 Tbsp oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
1 onion, chopped
1 can chicken broth
1 small can chopped green chiles
2 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
2 cans white beans
shredded cheddar or jack for topping, if desired

Cook chicken and onions in oil in large sauce pan until onion is tender. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for about 20 minutes.

That white chicken chili looks delicious!
Erica, if there are any particular recipes you want from mine let me know and I'll email them. I'm hesitant to post them, since they are direct from a cookbook. My email is in my profile :)
