Today is a special Works for me Wednesday. The theme is simple recipes with 5 or less ingredients. Sounds like a great idea, don't you think? Here's a few favorites.
1 pound ground beef, browned and drained
1 jar (16 ounces) salsa, divided
1 tube (17.3 ounces) large refrigerated biscuits
2 cups shredded colby jack cheese
2 cups shredded lettuce
Add 1 1/2 cups salsa to cooked ground beef. Heat through.
Split each biscuit in half and flatten into 4 inch rounds on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Top with meat mixture, cheese lettuce and remaining salsa. Makes 16 tostadas
Bubble Up Pizza
1 1/2 pounds ground beef, browned and drained
1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce
2 tubes (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

This next recipe is a hit whenever I make it. If I take it somewhere, there is never anything left. Heather has made these for church and youth events and now gets special requests for them. They are so easy, but so good! My recipe technically has 6 ingredients but I had to include it!
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
In large saucepan, combine the sugar and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat until mixture is just boiling. Remove from heat and add peanut butter. Then stir in cereal and stir until coated. Press into greased 9X13 pan. Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together and spread over bars. Refrigerate until topping is hard, then store out of refrigerator.
