Peanut Sauce

After a few years and many failed tries and trying to make this yummy dipping sauce I happened to be in the right place at the right time. We usually bought our peanut sauce from a Thai restaurant and the lady that made it (would never share the recipe) would always call Steve "Mr. Peanut Sauce" cause we were there a lot just for the sauce. I'm so happy to share it all with you.

2 Tablespoons Tamarind Liquid
4-5 Tbs. Chunky Peanut butter
1-2 Tbs. Red curry paste
6 Tbs. Sugar
4 Tbs. Fish sauce
1 1/2 cups Coconut Milk
1- In saucepan add coconut milk & heat it up at Medium heat.
2- Stir in curry paste & break into small pieces and mix well.
3- When you see red oil simmering to the top, add peanut butter, sugar, fish sauce, and tamarind liquid.
4- Stir.
** Add water if to thick, few tsp.
Needs to be Salty sweet and Sour
We use this to dip our Sticky rice and Chicken Satay!! YUM!

Super Nachos

My two VERY dear friends, Melody and Abbey married brothers.  This is a family recipe of theirs that their moms made for them and now, these two make it too.  I think there is something sweet about your spouse cooking something for you that your mom used to make you.  It shows thoughtfulness.  On a side note: these two married big time hunting enthusiasts, so more times than not the meat in this dish is usually from a deer!!

1 box Velveeta cheese
1 lb. ground beef
1 sm can diced green chilies
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 lg can of red enchilada sauce or an envelope of red enchilada sauce and mix your own

*Brown meat and drain fat.  Combine all ingredients in a crock pot and heat through.  Turn on warm and eat with tortilla chips!!
