Philly Cheese Steak Sanwiches

Who doesn't like a Philly Cheese Steak? Albertson's sells seasoned meal buy 1 get 2 free. This is one of he packages I had got for free. So the cost for this meal is not as much as it could have been.  I got this recipe from

1 lb Sirloin Steak, sliced thin 
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Green or Red Bell pepper, sliced
1 small Yellow Onion, sliced into rings
Season Salt, to taste
Ground Black Pepper, to taste
4 Tablespoons Cream Cheese, softened
4 slices American or Provolone Cheese

4 Hoagie Rolls

 In a small skillet over medium heat, melt 1 Tablespoon of butter. Add the onion and bell pepper. Saute until softened. About 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the steak meat on and cook for 2-3 minutes per side. Once each side is browned, start to chop it up with your spatula. You want small bite size pieces. Sprinkle with season salt and pepper to taste.
Once meat is thoroughly cooked, add in the onions and bell peppers. Stir.
Place each hoagie bun half on a cookie sheet. Top bottom halves of hoagie buns with a quarter of meat mixture. Top each with one slice of cheese. Place under the broiler until cheese has melted, and the buns are slightly toasted. *Stand by your oven the whole time to watch the cheese melt. It melts fast!*
Remove sandwiches from oven and spread 1 Tablespoon of cream cheese on top half of bun. Close sandwiches and serve immediately!

Baked Chicken and Spinach Flautas

It's Friday night! It's been a long week and we have a 3 day weekend ahead of us, I had put this on the menu for a FUN meal. Usually Friday nights are Left Over nights on our menu.

Total cost for this meal is $7.60 that's equals .76 for each Flautas

What your going to need:
3 boneless, skinless Chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I used Chicken tenders they were on sale)
1/2 cup chicken broth, divided
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cups fresh baby spinach, chopped
8 ounces Extra Sharp Cheddder, shredded
10 taco-size flour tortillas
cooking spray

Yes I have modified the recipe that I got from :

 For me it take 1 hour to cook my chicken. (I always boil mine)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

 Place the cooked, shredded chicken in a large bowl. Pour 1/4 cup of chicken broth over the chicken and then sprinkle with the chili powder, garlic powder, salt, . Mix well. Set aside

In a medium skillet, heat the remaining 1/4 cup chicken broth over medium heat and then add the chopped spinach leaves. Cook 3-4 minutes or until spinach wilts. Remove  from heat, and set aside.

Take one flour tortilla and spread about 1/4 cup of seasoned chicken down the middle. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese and then top with 1 Tablespoon of spinach. Roll up. Place flauta seam-side down onto a baking sheet lined with foil. Repeat with remaining tortillas, chicken, cheese and spinach.from heat, and set aside.

Once all flautas are rolled and on baking sheet, spray the tops of them with cooking spray. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden-brown and crispy.
