"This was so easy... so good! For years I feared pies, but now I given up making my own crust. Those ones in the refrigerator case are so easy and good."

"I've been making this for years from the Better Crocker cook book my mom gave me in 1980. However I don't use the microwave. I put all the ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat over VERY low heat, stirring frequently until smooth. It is best for a thin frosting on brownies. Or I increase the amounts and drizzle it over a Bundt cake. Try adding a dash or salt, vanilla, or even more cocoa powder."

"Easy to make and it tasted great! However on my first attempt the berry swirl didn't "set" making the pie difficult to serve without making a mess. I think I caused this by making the swirls too deep. Keep the berry mixture floating just on top so the cheese below can set up. Don't rush it! Give it at least 4 hours to set up in the refrigerator.

"Good stuff! Make your own buttermilk substitute. Pour about 1 tablespoon vinegar (apple cider or white) in a measuring cup, fill with milk. Stir. Wait 2-5 minutes for it curdle."

"This was great! But I totally modified it to my own needs. First I cooked it in a cast iron dutch oven. I didn't have bell peppers so I used fresh onion, celery & carrots. Then I added left over pulled pork and roasted veggies. I also omitted the water and added some left over BBQ sauce. Because the dutch oven is wider, I doubled the dough portion of the recipe. I still baked it at 400 for 30 minutes."

Roll ups are great! When available, I try to get a high-fiber or whole wheat tortilla. The recipe from Betty is a little high fat already, but sometimes is use cream cheese as "glue" hold my roll ups together. (Cram 'em full of veggies like raw spinach!)

Peanut Butter-Chili Chicken
Peanut Butter-Chili Chicken
Rating:
I first made this in 2000. It was a big hit. Over the years I have "doctored" the recipe many ways such as using boneless skinless chicken for a hurry up method. (But bones add flavor.) Because the chili & peanut butter remind me of a Thai flavor I also have used coconut oil for cooking the chicken.
