Betty Crocker Free Samples Just for You 

I recently tasted a wonderful soup made by a family from Merida, Yucatan, Mexico and is from that region.
Called Sopa De Lima, or lime soup.

Contained chicken, green peppers, onion, chili peppers, fresh limes, all cooked separately, chicken broth and water. Another ingredient is only available in the Yucatan, but if anyone knows a complete measurement list, and where to obtain a produce called: "recado Rojo "that looks like a piece of red clay, that is mixed with water then poured over the chicken and baked. The broth was served, then the other ingredients were on the table for me to add to the broth, then fried corn tortillas were served to break up in the soup.

This question is for Lisa regarding the January 8th posting of Lisa's Oven Baked Salmon Casserole Recipe. The list of ingredients calls for "1/2 cup salad dressing." Am I correct to assume you are referencing a product like Miracle Whip? Thanks for your help Lisa ... I'm very anxious to try this. Cheryl in Illinois

Hi Nancy,
In the January 8 newsletter, Linda in NM submitted a recipe for green chile enchiladas. I would like to know if Linda is using corn, or flour tortillas in this recipe.

Love all the newsletters, and have saved a lot of recipes to try. Happy New Year to all the Nancylanders, too!

Ground Beef Recipes

 My family is always delighted whenever I make these delicious cinnamon rolls, which don't take as much time to prepare as many recipes, since the dough only rises once.

One Rise Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

1 cup heavy whipping cream (don't substitute)
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp. butter, divided, softened
3-1/2 cups flour
1 envelope active dry yeast
1 tsp. salt
1 cup hot tap water
1 egg

Mix brown sugar and whipping cream in a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl for electric mixer, combine the 1-1/2 cups flour, dry yeast, 1/4 cup sugar, salt, hot water, 2 tbsp. butter and egg. Beat for 3 minutes at medium speed. Stir in remaining flour. Knead on a floured surface for 1 minute. Roll dough into a 15 x 7 inch rectangle. Mix together the cinnamon and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Spread 1/2 cup butter over surface of rolled dough; sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Starting with long side, roll up tightly, sealing edges. Cut into 16 rolls and place cut side down onto cream mixture. Place cut side down into cream mixture. Cover and let rise about 1 hour in warm place, until doubled in bulk. Bake at 400 for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool 15 minutes and invert onto serving tray.

The friend that gave me this recipe lived in Michigan, so I've always referred to them by that name. I just know bean dishes go over well at cookouts and potlucks, and these have always been a crowd-pleaser.

1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup catsup
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp. cider vinegar
2 tbsp. molasses
2 tbsp. prepared mustard
3 cans (15 oz. size) great northern beans, rinsed and drained

In saucepan, cook sausage and onion in boiling water for 2 minutes; drain. In a bowl, combine the catsup, sugars, vinegar, molasses and mustard. Stir in the beans, sausage and onion. Put into greased 2-1/2 quart baking dish. Cover and bake at 350 for 1-1/2 hours or until bean mixture reaches desired thickness.
Serves 14 to 16.
