Taco Pizza

(Picture is before toppings)
1-2lbs Shredded Chicken or Ground Beef (I cooked chicken until it fell apart/shredded easily in the crockpot with water and a little bit of taco seasoning!)
1/2 packet of taco seasoning

Boboli-or any brand Prepared Pizza Crust (2 pack normal size or 3 small personal pizza crusts)
1 can regular size tomato sauce (not the big one, not the tiny one)
1 can regular size refried beans
1 package fiesta blend shredded cheese (grab the big bag if you're a cheese lover, but you'll probably have leftover cheese)
Toppings: Doritos, Sour Cream, Lettuce, Black olives

Cook/shred chicken or brown ground beef, season to taste-salt/pepper/onion powder/taco seasoning if desired. Brush pizza crusts with small amount of olive oil(as directed on package) in small saucepan combine tomato sauce and refried beans, heat and stir until mixed well. Spread sauce mixture on pizza crust, next cover with a layer of chicken/or beef and top with cheese. Place in oven according to pizza crust package.
Remove from oven and top with desired toppings, Sour Cream, Lettuce, and our personal favorite crushed up doritos.

Easter Egg Rice Krispy Treats

Rice Krispie Easter Eggs

4 Tbsp butter
1 10 oz bag marshmallows
6 C crispy rice cereal
3 colors of food coloring

Melt the butter on the stovetop.
Melt the marshmallows with the butter.
When the marshmallows are melted, have ready 3 bowls big enough for room to stir 2 C rice cereal in with 1/3 of the marshmallow cream. Also have the food coloring ready. Add 1/3 of the melted marshmallow to each bowl, add in desired amount of coloring and stir. Mix 2 C of rice cereal into each bowl until fully combined.

When the cereal and marshmallow is fully mixed and cool enough to handle, take about 1/3-cup of the mixture and stuff into a small to medium plastic easter egg for shape, remove and Set eggs aside to cool, not touching each other, on wax paper or a cookie sheet. (Tip: if your hands get to sticky, wet them slightly or rub small amount of crisco on hands while handling the mixture)
Serve these in an Easter basket or on a deviled egg plate!
Makes about 24 eggs
