Ha-Cha-Cha Chicken – Cheap Date Night is for the Birds

I am a firm believer in all things cheap and fast. Just like I like my men. heheh. =) Ok, nobody tell my husband I said that k?

So for our meal today we’re having Ha-Cha-Cha Chicken. Simple as a dimple.

1 pre-cooked chicken breast or leftover rotisserie chicken
chopped onion
chopped green pepper
3-4 Tbsp hot sauce
Toss all in a microwaveable bowl and well..microwave. 3 minutes or so til veggies are a little soft.
Add in macaroni and cheese – either prepare it yourself, or buy the Bob Evans already done stuff. (Yeah, guess which one I go for….=) ) Toss in 1 Tbsp sour cream and stir.
Microwave another 3 minutes or so and top with crushed Doritos. Spicy ones! If you’re really talented and know how to turn your oven on? You can bake it at this point for extra crispiness.

Dinner, Drinks and a Movie – on the Cheap

We once again head into the land of cheap, where dinner is fast, drinks are easy and the watching is free. What more can you ask for?

First, we’ll start off our exciting evening with Chicken Fajitas. No way, Carrie! It’s too much work!

Piffle. Watch this.

Ingredients:
1 rotisserie chicken
1 pkg fajita seasoning
onions and peppers
cheddar cheese
lettuce
salsa
flour tortillas

Bring home a rotisserie chicken. Take the meat off in chunks and toss in a frying pan with Fajita seasoning mix. Toss in green peppers and onions. If you’re sneaky, you’ll have bought the kind already cut up in the store! Add water per directions. Let simmer for a bit while you warm your flour tortillas in the microwave between wet paper towels.

For each serving, top a flour tortilla with a couple spoonfuls of chicken mix, top with cheddar cheese and lettuce and salsa and sour cream if you’d like.

Done!

Date Night – Dinner, A Movie and Drinks

My husband is cheap. I mean CHEAP. He squeaks when he walks. If I say honey, why don’t you buy Hanes instead of Great Value, he’ll actually say “squeak squeak squeak”. And I know I’m not the only one married to such a cheapskate thrifty man.

So here today, is your cheap date. Dinner (ok, just the recipe) a Movie (generally supplied by Youtube and less than 4 min long) and Drinks.

Hachacha. Hot time in the town tonight.

Nacho supremo. Start with a bag of Doritos or corn tortilla chips. Spread chips out evenly on a microwave safe plate. Top with a handful of shredded cheddar cheese, and nuke one minute. On top add your ingredients of choice. I recommend ground beef (cooked), crumbled bacon (the already cooked kind if you’re feeling flush, cook it yourself if you’re CHEAP), jalapenos and tomatoes. Some people think this would be a good spot for mushrooms or even black olives, but….ew.



Top that with shredded cheddar cheese. Either microwave 2 min or melt in the broiler part of your oven for a few minutes til melted.
Voila. Supper.



Smart Ass Romance - Bottums Up - Fun Drink RecipesWhile the cheese is melting on your nachos, lets put together a fun little drink called The Salty Chihuahua.
Rub a lime wedge (or even a wet finger!) around the rim of a glass.
Salt the rim.
Fill with ice.
Add in one shot of tequila. (the good stuff, now’s not the time to be cheap!)
Fill with grapefruit juice.
By now the nachos should be done.

Grab a chair, sit back and lets enjoy a few moments of Marco Tempest and his Phone Cam Magic – And ps – Your drink isn’t too strong – it’s the cameraman who’s wobbly on the first one!
