This is a side dish that me and a classmate put together in home ec class when I was a Sr., about 3 yrs ago
. Well, it earned an A+ grade for the both of us. Since then, it has become one of my families favorite holiday dishes, so straight from my taco head I will share it with you all and maybe you and yours might like it too.alrighty then!! 3 cans~they are smaller then the yellow corn cans (I splurge on the best brand~cuz it's yellow corn the rest of the year) of vacuum-sealed white shoe pegged corn..........completely drain the small amount of liquid from each can.2 and 1/2 pkg's of Philadelphia Cream Cheese~let sit out until completely soft1 small can(4oz) peeled/diced green chiles, .......slightly drained but leave just a tad of the pepper juice Combine all ingriedients by gently folding together in a mixing bowl, I use a spatula. Fold into a oven safe casserole dish, I use a glass one(it helps me see when it is heated throughout and has just a hint of bubbling) place dish on middle rack of your oven @ about 375 degrees and bake until there is a hint of brown showing on top and the casserole is heated throughout. In my house we call it Jalapeno Corn . It is quick and easy to make, and is just like green bean casserole, which only has 3 ingriedients also, but tastes so good it seems like it took more time and effort. Well, for those who have a taste for the 3 items above, give this dish a try sometime. And I hope you will enjoy it.<img src="http://www.sparkimg.com/emoticons/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile" /> latertater, talkintaco
pumpkin applesauce cookies with oatmeal & raisins These are my favorite fall cookies. The applesauce pairs well with the pumpkin and great-smelling spices creating an aroma that wafts through the kitchen while cooking. They're a perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea or the end of a hearty Thanksgiving meal. Start to finish: about 45 minutes. Servings: Makes 5-6 dozen cookies Ingredients </h2> 2 cups, all-purpose flour 1 1/3 cups, quick oats 1 tsp, baking soda 1/2 tsp, salt 2 tsp, cinnamon 1/4 tsp, ground cloves 1/2 tsp, ground ginger 1/2 tsp, ground nutmeg 1/2 cup, unsalted butter at room temperature 1/2 cup, natural applesauce 1 cup, packed brown sugar 1 cup, sugar 1 cup, canned pumpkin 1 large egg 1 tsp, vanilla extract (note: cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg quantities can be increased if stronger flavor is desired.) 3/4 cup raisins Preparation </h2> Preheat oven to 350.

In 2nd larger bowl, beat together butter, applesauce, brown sugar and sugar until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract and mix in. Then add flour mixture and mix well. Gently stir in raisins. Drop teaspoons of batter onto greased cookie sheets. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until light brown on bottom. Let cool on wire racks, then store in an air-tight container.
