Jalapeño Sausage Balls

This is a year of creating new Christmas traditions!! My new German Shepherd puppy, Kaizer, finally has all of his shots and is able to go to places that other dogs go.  First stop on Christmas morning was to take him to the Katy Trail for a walk.  While we were out, we noticed that the Katy Trail Ice House had the fire pits going, so after our walk, we went and warmed up by the fire.  I’m not sure if they were open on Christmas day, but they were nice enough to come build a fire and leave water for all the people who exercise on the trail.  Kaiser absolutely loved being out there and greeting all the other dogs.  We have hereby renamed the Katy Trail to the Kaizer Trail and the Katy Trail Ice House is now the Kaizer Trail Ice House.

After the walk on the Katy Trail, we went home and made Jalapeño Sausage Balls.  They were so delicious and will be how we start off all of our future Christmas mornings!! They are SO easy to make and they are SOOOOO good!! I wasn’t sure I’d like the jalapeño in them, so I made half with peppers and half without. From now on I will make them ALL with the jalapeños!!

2 Cups of Bisquick
1 Cup of Cheese
1 lb of browned sausage (I prefer the Hot)
Diced Jalapeños to taste

Combined the ingredients until all the Bisquick is mixed together and there is no dry flour. Roll the mixture in to small balls and put on a cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 20 – 25 minutes until brown.

Campout Chicken Taco Soup

Instead of dealing with all the drunks out on the road for New Year’s Eve, I decided to head out to Lake Tawakoni and go camping.  I guess I should use the word “camping” lightly, because going in a travel trailer isn’t exactly roughing it!  In fact, a lot of people actually LIVE in their travel trailers.  I stayed at the Sunset Resort; I think 99% of the people who were there actually live there.  My two favorite parts of the trip were starting a campfire each day and cooking out, not that I cooked over the campfire or anything.

One of the best things I cooked was a Chicken Taco Soup. I’m not sure why, but everything tastes better when it’s cooked outside, even if you use regular kitchen utensils like I did.  This crockpot soup was made ALMOST entirely from cans so it was really EASY!! Not only that, I bought all generic cans, so it was really cheap!

  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15 oz.) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can petite diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 (15.25 oz.) can sweet corn, drained
  • 1 (10.75 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (10 oz.) can green enchilada sauce
  • 1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 Shredded Rotisserie Chicken

Pour all of the ingredients in the crockpot, cook on high for as long as you want. I think I had it on for a couple hours.  Stir it occasionally.

Garnish it with chips, shredded cheese, sour cream, or anything else you can come up with!  This was delicious!!! I will probably even make this for dinner at home!!

I saw this recipe on Facebook last month and it’s been on my mind ever since.  I’ve been waiting on the weather to get a little cooler since cool weather and cornbread go hand in hand!  I’m pretty sure that this isn’t low carb, but sometimes you have to live a little!  This was well worth the wait!  Where has this been all my life!?
