⅓ cup brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon salt

First, prepare the crumble topping. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, oats, brown sugar, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Cut in the butter with a pastry knife, or two forks, or with your hands until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
Peel and chop 4 of the apples. Add chopped apples, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon to a medium sauce pan and sauté over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from heat.

Mexican “Lasagna” Enchiladas Casserole


I like to spread some soul around... like these Mexican Lasagna Enchiladas Casserole. I found this recipe and make a little changes.... I think you will like it.

*Sprinkle Corn Tortillas with chili powder and cumin powder after Frying them.

1 tablespoon oil

1/2 medium onion diced

1 pound lean ground beef

salt to taste

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 tablespoon cumin powder

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/4 cup beef broth

1 poblano pepper

1 (3.8 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained

1/2 pound grated cheddar cheese

1/2 pound grated jack cheese

2 (10 ounce) cans prepared enchilada sauce or chili sauce or cream chicken soup (add one can of water to both cans of soup mixed well creamy).

10 (6-inch) corn tortillas

1/4 cup oil for frying tortillas

Heat the oven to 375

Heat the oil over medium heat in a large frying pan, when hot add the ground beef and the onions, cook, breaking apart the meat with the back of your spoon, until it is just cooked and the onions are soft. Add the salt, chili powder, cumin and oregano. Stir well then add the water or broth and let it simmer until the liquid has evaporated.

While the meat mixture cooks, roast the poblano over an open flame or under the broiler. Place in a cover bowl and allow to steam for 15 minutes. Once it has cooled, remove the skin and seeds and roughly dice. Do not rinse the pepper as this dilutes it’s flavor, a little char left is fine.

While the pepper is resting, and the meat is cooking, heat 1/4 cup oil in a small sauté pan.



After frying each tortilla until crisp, but not browned or hard.Sprinkle Corn Tortillas with chili powder and cumin powder. Remove to paper towels to drain, continue until all have been cooked

Cover the bottom of an 8 x 8 x 2 baking dish with a thin layer of the enchilada sauce or thin layer chicken cream soup; place two whole tortillas on one side, slightly overlapping, cut one of the tortillas in half and place them one the other side, so the whole bottom is covered. Spread 1/3 of the meat mixture over the top, sprinkle 1/3 of the cheese over, and top with the poblano slices.

Make another layer of tortillas, (put the whole ones on the opposite side and the halves over what was the whole ones on the first layer); top with 1/3 of the meat mixture, 1/3 of the cheese and sprinkle the olives over the top. Pour some of the enchilada sauce to cover well or chicken cream soup.

Make a third layer with all four of the remaining tortillas, overlapping as needed. Top with remaining meat mixture and then the rest of the enchilada sauce, finishing with remaining cheese. Place in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and it is bubbly hot, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

Stuff Pork Chops With Quinoa

4 pork chops (bone in)
2 cups quinoa, cooked
1 cup fresh sweet corn
1 cup green apple, remove core and chopped
1 white onion, chopped
5 fresh sage leaves, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup maple syrup (glaze)
Salt and black pepper to taste.

Stuffing:
In a large deep sided frying pan, add two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.  When pan is hot, add onions and apples. Saute until soft. Add corn and cooked quinoa to the pan.  Stir to combine all the ingredients. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Leave half the stuffing aside for garnish. Set aside

Pork Chops:
Drizzle extra virgin olive oil generously over the chops (both sides) and rub with fresh sage and garlic.  Season well with salt and black pepper. Make a slit in the side of each chop. Stuff each pork chop with stuffing.

Preheat oven to 450 F.

Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet and sear pork chops on both sides until browned (3 to 4 minutes). Transfer pork chops to a large greased baking dish. Glazed the top of each chop with maple syrup. Bake uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked. Glaze chops throughout cooking time. Turn chops over halfway and continue glazing until all the maple syrup is used up.

You can also use pan drippings to glaze the chops because that's where all the great flavor is and color. Remove from heat and allow to rest before serving.

In a large serving platter, cover the bottom with stuffing and arrange pork chops on top.  Glaze the chops with pan drippings and garnish with fresh sage or herbs of your choice.
