BBQ Chicken Wraps

The other night my husband and I ate at Red Robin and I ordered their Whiskey River BBQ chicken wrap. I switched out the tortilla strips for their onion straws and it was so good. I decided to try and recreate it at home. We were really happy with how they turned out!

BBQ Chicken Wraps

4 chicken breasts
BBQ Sauce
4 large tortillas
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
shredded lettuce
French's french fried onions
Ranch dressing

Grill your chicken. During the last 15 minutes of cooking brush the BBQ sauce on the chicken. When chicken is done remove it from the grill and cut it in to strips. Warm your tortillas in the microwave. Place your chicken strips down the center of the tortilla, leaving some space at both ends. Pour a little more BBQ sauce on chicken if desired. Add cheese, onions, lettuce, and top with ranch dressing. Fold in the ends of the tortilla and roll up. Cut the wrap in half and serve.

Cheese Ball

This is a quick, easy, and delicious cheese ball. My friend had made it for a bridal shower a few weeks ago, and I couldn't get enough. I had never made a cheese ball before, but I wanted to try it out so I made it for a baby shower this weekend. It was still just as good, and I was surprised at how simple it was to make.

Cheese Ball

2 packages cream cheese, softened
5 green onions, chopped
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained really well
seasoned salt, to taste (about 1 tsp)
1 - 2 cups pecans, chopped

Mix cream cheese, green onions, crushed pineapple and seasoned salt together. Form in to a ball. Roll in chopped pecans. Cover with saran wrap and place in fridge until ready to serve. Serve with crackers and/or veggies.

Sprite Potatoes

We tried this recipe about a year ago and really liked it. Then somehow I forgot about it. My husband was really excited when I told him we were having them again. You might look at the recipe and think that it just doesn't work, but it really does. The bacon, the cheese, the onions and then the sprite adds just a touch of sweetness. They are really good!

Sprite Potatoes

1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 lb. bacon, chopped
5-6 potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
9-10 baby carrots, sliced thin
seasoned salt
onion salt
garlic salt
1-2 cans Sprite

In a large pot/skillet saute onion and bacon together until onion is translucent and bacon is crispy. Add potatoes, carrots and seasonings to taste. Stir together. Add sprite, just enough to cover the potatoes.
Cover and bring to a boil, simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are tender and most of the liquid has reduced.
Cover generously with grated colby jack cheese or cheddar cheese and let stand for 3-5 minutes, or until melted. Enjoy!!
