Homemade pot pies
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
1 cup diced cooked chicken
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Layers refrigerated biscuits

Here's what you need to do:
1) Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, combine vegetables, chicken and soup; mix well.
2) Press each biscuit into 5 1/2-inch round. Place 1 round in each of 8 greased regular-size muffin cups. Firmly press in bottom and up side, forming 3/4-inch rim. Spoon a generous 1/3 cup chicken mixture into each. Pull edges of dough over filling toward center; pleat and pinch dough gently to hold in place.
3) Bake at 375°F 20 to 22 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from pan.

Vegetarian potstickers
These are delicious and take a bit of time, but are about as easy as they come. They would have been a lot faster if I had a bigger skillet and didn't have to do them in small batches. Make sure that they don't touch, or else when you pour in the water, they'll all stick together.

Yield : Makes about 30

Poblano, Mango, and Black Bean Quesadillas
I'm a sucker for mango and avocado. These are super yummy and seriously easy! I bought and ripened whole mangos and avocados, but if you're in a super hurry, or just lazy, you can do canned and pre-sliced items like the recipe calls for. For extra fanciness, you can top them with sour cream & salsa.

Yield: 4 quesadillas
Time: 15 min
