  8. 12 corn taco shells (frozen kind)
  9. 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Instructions
  1. Brown hamburger with chopped onion. Drain well.
  2. Add green chili peppers, taco sauce, tomato sauce.
  3. Mix together cream of mushroom soup and milk.
  4. Heat until warm, then add to meat mixture.

Nowadays it's easy to whip this together from a mix. But sometimes it's nice to go back and do it from scratch. It gives you more control and you can tweak it to how your family likes it.

Notes
  1. Mom wrote, "½ recipe" on the top of the card. The writing is faded and the card shows signs of age, so this may have been what she used back when the family was still smaller. Since she and dad eventually had 4 kids, this recipe wouldn't have made enough. My guess is that she doubled or tripled it as the need arose.

Corn Bread

Corn Bread

Most of mom's extended family are from Arkansas, and it's highly unlikely anyone from Arkansas doesn't already know how to make corn bread, but I'll post this anyway, since it is in her recipe box.

Ingredients
  1. ¾ cup milk
  2. ¼ cup sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. ¼ cup vegetable oil
  5. 1 package active dry yeast
  6. ¼ cup warm water (105-115° F.)
  7. 1 egg, beaten
  8. 3 ¼ cups flour
  9. ¾ cup sugar
  10. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  11. vegetable oil for frying
  12. Confectioners’ sugar glaze
Instructions
  1. Scald milk; stir in ¼ cup sugar, salt and ¼ cup vegetable oil. Cool to lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl. Stir in lukewarm milk mixture, egg and half the flour. Beat until smooth.
  2. Stir in enough additional flour to form a soft dough. On lightly floured board, knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top.
  4. Cover; let rise in warm place, free from draft, until dough is doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  5. Combine remaining ¾ cup sugar and cinnamon. Punch dough down. On lightly floured board, divide dough in half. Roll each half into a 14×9-inch rectangle. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Roll each rectangle up tightly to form a 9-inch roll. Seal edges firmly.
  6. Cut each roll into nine equal pieces. Place on greased baking sheets, cut side up. Press down to flatten. Cover; let your Cinna-Swirls rise in a warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk about 30 minutes.
  7. Deep-fry in vegetable oil (375° F.) for 2-3 minutes or until brown on both sides. Drain on absorbent paper. While warm, dip in confectioners’ sugar glaze. Makes 18 swirls.
Notes
  1. Mom wrote: "Use a little more cinnamon than sugar. Very Good. Careful, it's very easy to get grease too hot." She tended to use shortening to fry things rather than cooking oil.
