This is an eMeals recipe that has made it into our list of family favorites. It’s now one of the ones I turn to on days when something on the menu plan doesn’t sound like something we’d eat.

Really, this White Chicken Chili is super easy and tastes great. It extra super-easy since I make it with shredded chicken that I’ve pre-cooked in the crock pot and frozen. That’s one of the ways that we make the eMeals menu planning service work for us. I still save by buying meat in bulk and pre-cooking a lot of it. With the vast majority of the recipes, I can use these pre-cooked meats to make dinner prep even faster and easier.

Ingredients:

3 Chicken Breasts (I use about 2 cups of frozen, shredded, pre-cooked chicken)

1 1/4 c coarsely chopped onions (I use a shake or two of dehydrated onions)

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

15 oz can chicken broth (I use 2 cups water and 2 teaspoons chicken bullion from Costco)

2 (15 oz) cans great northern beans

1 can tomatoes and green chiles (Ro-tel)

1 teaspoon garlic salt

grated cheese to top the soup (I use cheddar but the recipe calls for Mozzarella)

Instructions:

Proof that I’m not kidding when I say “Dump it all together.”

Dump everything together and simmer for one hour in a soup pot or in a crock pot for 4-6 hours. If you don’t have the pre-cooked chicken, boil your chicken breasts first and shred.

Yum.

Beef Noodle Stir Fry Recipe

This beef and noodle stir fry has become a family favorite.

My twelve year old often asks, “Hey, when are you going to make that, y’know, noodle stuff I really like.”

This is an eMeals recipe that really did take me out of my comfort zone. In a good way. I tend to stick with chicken breasts and ground beef, but having my menu planned for me helped me be willing to venture into sirloin.

Now, you know that I don’t actually follow recipes, right? Good.

But I do usually at least look at this one. I’ll share the real recipe along with my own changes.

Ingredients:

12 oz angel hair pasta (I accidentally used 16 ounces this time and it was too much.)

8 oz portabella sliced mushrooms (I use the regular white, cheap mushrooms.)

12 oz whole green beans, sliced in half (I used a package of frozen broccoli.)

1/2 in piece of fresh ginger, sliced into thin strips (Whatever. Too much hassle. I skipped it.)

3T oil, 6 T soy sauce, 3 T honey, 1 1/2 T cornstarch, 1/4 t pepper (I skipped the pepper.)

1 1/2 lbs sirloin tip steak, sliced into 1/8″ strips

Instructions:

Boil the pasta, drain and set aside.

In one tablespoon of oil, saute the mushrooms and broccoli until they are tender.

Add the vegetables to the pasta and toss. (This is something I wouldn’t have thought to do.)

Mix the soy sauce, honey and 1 1/2 teaspoon of water together. Toss the sliced sirloin in the cornstarch (and pepper if you use it).

Brown the beef in two teaspoons of oil on medium high until mostly cooked through, and then add the soy sauce mixture and cook for another minute or two.

I then mixed it together with the pasta, but you could also serve it on top.

Honestly, having lived in Thailand, I thought it wouldn’t be good using regular angel-hair pasta instead of rice noodles, but it really is delicious!

Super-Duper Easy Pizza Casserole (Using Pre-Cooked Ground Beef)

This post contains affiliate links.

As you know, I’ve been using eMeals for over a year now. I’ve explained how I use the meal-planning service, but thought it might be good to show it in action.

And . . . share a favorite recipe that I got from them.

We’re picky. We use the Aldi Classic Family Plan which has very basic meals, but there are always a few even in that plan that we wouldn’t like. I choose the 3-4 that sound good to us, and then I supplement with our own family favorite recipes like chicken fried rice or BBQ chicken sandwiches.

But, I have added a few new recipes to our favorites since using the service. This pizza casserole is one.

Things that make this a natural favorite:

Anything with pizza in the name makes my family happy. (Perhaps you’ve noticed this.)

It’s easy. Like so crazy easy that I just make it. I don’t even look for a recipe, though there obviously was one in the plan the first time I made it.

It fits my normal cooking style. (Meaning: My version of freezer-cooking.)

I can put it together in about five minutes and then let it bake for 25ish minutes.

Instructions:

Cover the bottom of a 9×13 pan with pre-cooked, frozen ground beef.

Pour a jar of spaghetti sauce on top and cover with shredded mozzarella cheese.

Mix that together.

Cover with one can of crescent roll dough as shown in the photo above.

Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top.

Bake at 350 until the dough is cooked and filling is bubbly.  (Takes me about 25 minutes.)

If you like things from scratch, you can use homemade spaghetti sauce and a homemade biscuit topping. At our house, though, this is one of those “Hey! At least we ate at home, people!” meals.

Many of the recipes on our eMeals plan are much more from-scratch-ey than this one. I’ll be sharing a few more of our favorites this month.

Obviously, I’m using my affiliate links for eMeals meal-planning service. Be sure to see an overall explanation of how it works here. I get the service for free, but would pay for it if I didn’t. It fits my life needs right now as someone with little time who is passionate about eating at home.
