dutch oven recipes

mr. roundy and I are headed to this San Diego County park for the weekend.  Thought you might like to know what we are eating on the trip…

{Heart Attack in a Pot} 
a dinner recipe

30 corn tortillas
16oz sour cream
2 cans diced green chillies
2 cans corn
2 pounds shredded cheese
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
2 cans chicken

1. Combine soup, sour cream, chicken, green chillies and corn in a bowl.
2. Grease the Dutch oven and lid with oil -or- line the Dutch oven with foil for an easy clean-up.
3. Layer the bottom of the oven with tortillas, sauce {step 1} and cheese. Continue layering.
4. Sprinkle the remainder of the cheese on the surface.
5. Cook for 45 minutes or until brown and bubbly.

note: For less of a heart attack opt for low fat cheese and sour cream.

{Monkey Balls} 
a breakfast recipe

2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
4 cans flaky canned biscuits

1. Grease Dutch oven and lid -or- line the Dutch oven with foil for and easy clean-up.
2. Cut the biscuits into fourths and ball up.
3. Melt butter, add nuts and brown sugar together.
4. Place half the balls of dough in the bottom of the Dutch oven and drizzle half the sugar mixture on top.
5. Place the remaining balls of dough as the second layer and top with remaining sugar mixture.
6. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the dough is thoroughly cooked.
7. Pull apart and enjoy!

note: I reduce the butter and sugar by quite a bit and still enjoy the same great taste. I do however enjoy the traditional biscuits over the low fat.
