Creamy Fajitas And Apple Plum Crisp Recipes


  • Add a box of dry instant vanilla pudding, after beating eggs, in any cookie batter for a perfect textured cookie or bar. From Marsha B.
  • Try adding a pinch of oregano or a teaspoon of onion soup mix to your green beans for a different twist and taste.
  • Add a teaspoon of bacon grease to green beans and sprinkle with onion salt or onion powder. This is especially good when serving them with something like meatloaf and mashed potatoes.

Creamy Fajitas Recipe

I have a favorite recipe using steak cubes, mushroom soup, sour cream and green chilies.

Flour the steak cubes as it helps thicken the sauce. Brown the steak cubes. Add mushroom soup, green chiles and simmer for 1 hour. Then add sour cream and put in beans if you want them. Wrap ingredients in flour tortillas and add shredded cheddar cheese. Everyone loves it! Jane S

Jane didn’t give us exact measurements, but here is a general idea. These measurements aren’t exact and you can feel free to adjust them.

2 cups cubed steak
1 can cream of mushroom soup (10 3/4 oz.)
1 small can chopped green chiles
1 cup sour cream


Salsa Green Beans

1 lb. green beans
16 oz. jar of salsa
1 tsp. olive oil

Cook frozen, fresh or canned green beans. Add salsa and olive oil and simmer 5-10 minutes until flavors are blended.


Apple Plum Crisp Recipe

4 cups apples, peeled and sliced
2 cups plums, pitted and sliced
1/2 cup margarine, melted and divided
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. flour
3/4 tsp. cinnamon, divided
1 cup oats
1/4 cup nuts, chopped
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed, divided

Combine 1/4 cup margarine, 1/4 cup brown sugar, lemon juice, flour and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Add apples and plums, toss and coat well. Place in 8×11 baking pan.

In a bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup margarine, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon along with oats, nuts and ginger. Sprinkle over fruit. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until fruit is tender and topping crisp and browned. Serve with ice cream or whipped topping. 

You may substitute 2 cups of peaches or nectarines for plums.

      I think what she meant was any kind of cubes of steak and I think that is what is used in like regular steak fajitas. With this recipe it just adds the sauce which is not the norm.

    I don’t think I have ever eaten fajhitas.
    might give this a try sometime when someone is here to help eat them since Don won’t.
    sent the crisp recipe to my son will let you know how his chinese family like it. Plums seem to be a favourite food in China. But my DIL had never heard of plum sauce.
    I will copy this recipe for future reference though.

      In the fajitas you can add any kind of beans you would like like, black beans, pinto, or re fried beans those are usually the kind used with Mexican food. They are optional.

    You can make the fajitas lower calorie by substituting one cup non-fat plain yogurt for the sour cream. It would still taste delicious! I just happened to be making my meal plan for next week. I think I know one thing to add. :)

    I currently have a copy of “Penny Pinchin Mama”; copyright 2008 and I also have a copy of “Dig Out of Debt; copyright.What I would like to know is if there is much of a difference in the new publications. I love my current copies and refer to them often. I would love to purchase the new books if there really is a difference; but, like so many other people I have to be careful on my spending. Please let me know asap since the sale will be over soon!
    Frugally Yours, Cheryl Lauten

    Saving that great sounding crisp recipe for this summer when plums are so cheap and
    available. (sometimes free) Thank you!!!

    • says

      Most crisp’s are the same and you could could use any fruit in this recipe like peaches, rhubarb, or cherries. They only thing you may have to do is add a little less or more sugar if the fruit is more or less tart and a tablespoonful more or less of flour if the fruit is juicier. Try this with your cherries and yo will be fine.

  6. Mary Jane says

    I have used a basic crisp recipe for years, and substituted whatever fruit it was that I had on hand. the family favourites were rhubarb crisp (with the first fresh rhubarb from the garden appearing after a long winter), and plum crisp, because plums were often the cheapest fruit available in bulk here over the summer month. same recipe, different fruit. Your posting makes me want to go dig out a bag of frozen rhubarb from the freezer, and make a crisp.
