3 Ingredient Recipes – Chicken Tacos and More!


  • Frozen Yogurt Popsicle  – Stick a popsicle stick into the center of a container of yogurt, leaving foil the lid on. Freeze.
  • Fast Frosting – If you don’t have time or ingredients to frost your cake, lay a paper doily on it then dust with powdered sugar. Carefully remove the doily and you’ll have a sweet topping with a pretty pattern!
  • Freeze Blueberries – Freeze blueberries in the basket they come in. Do not wash them first. Wrap it all in foil or plastic wrap. This helps them keep their color and shape better.


Chicken Tacos
Tomato, Mozzarella and Avocado Salad
No Bake Ice Box Cake


Chicken Tacos

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 package taco seasoning
1 can Rotel tomatoes*

Place all of the ingredients in the crockpot and cook on low 6-8 hours. Shred and use in tacos, burritos, enchiladas or in a salad. You can also serve it hot or cold so it would be great as leftovers to take in a lunch.

*Rotel tomatoes are canned tomatoes with chopped green peppers or jalapenos. Any brand that is labeled “tomatoes and green chilies” should be OK or just used canned tomatoes and add the kind of peppers you would like.


Tomato, Mozzarella Cheese, Avocado Salad

Mozzarella Cheese, cubed
Avocado, cubed

Toss tomatoes and cheese with your favorite Italian dressing and chill 1 hour. Just before serving, add in the avocado.


No Bake Ice Box Cake

12- 16 graham crackers, enough to cover a 9×13 pan or platter
1 (8 oz.) container whipped topping
 2 lbs. or 4 cups fresh or canned (drained) fruit of your choice including strawberries, peaches or blueberries

Spread the bottom of a 9×13 pan or platter with a thin layer of whipped topping. Layer with graham crackers. Add another thin layer of whipped topping, and then some strawberries (or other fruit). Do this until you have 4 layers of graham crackers and end with whipped topping and more strawberries. Drizzle with chocolate sauce if you like. Chill for 4 hours so the graham crackers can absorb the moisture.

    My mother used to make the no bake ice box cake but instead of
    graham crackers she used layers of vanilla wafers. They give a
    good taste to the cake.

  2. Jill says

    You can also make your own taco seasoning and not buy those overpriced packages. Here’s the recipe – make in bulk and store in a glass jar.

    Taco seasoning

    2 tsp. Chili powder
    1 tsp. Cumin
    1/2 tsp. onion powder
    1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    1/2 tsp. sea salt
    1/4 tsp. oregano

    Use 1-2 Tablespoons per 1lb. Of meat

      Thanks Jill for this recipe. For those of you who need them we have several homemade seasonings like Italian, Cajun, pumpkin spice, seasoned salt, etc. along with many sauces you can make – chili sauce, horseradish, garlic mayo, ketchup, several different mustards, shrimp cocktail, tarter and many others in Dining on a Dime if you are needing some more similar ones.

    Just wanted to say I used your recipe for Apple Crisp, from your “Dinning on a Dime” cookbook. I had just picked fresh Saskatoons in the garden and substituted them in place of the apples. So good! I have since made this recipe 3 times using the free fruit! Dh loves it ( and he is a picky eater).
    Thanks again for some great, easy recipes. I use the cookbook on a regular basis.

        No saskatoons?? Oh, you don’t know what you’re missing!

        We have them plentiful here in Canada, and I imagine the northern US would have them too. They grow in bushes/trees, and are similar to blueberries but a bit different. They can grow wild or be cultivated. They make excellent jams, syrups and fruit preserves too. They are among my favourite to forage for, next to chokecherries and pincherries.

        • says

          Oh they sound yummy but of course I love any kind of berry. I have not heard of pincherries either. Although here in Kansas we have very few berries that grow well wild here. I will never forget the first time I went to the northwest and saw millions of blackberry bushes growing wild. I thought I had died and went to heaven.

    Note on Rotel tomatoes. Be sure you get MILD ones or the shredded
    chicken could be too hot (spicy) for some people. I have ruined a few dishes with
    food being too hot —especially for kids.
