Easy Meal for Busy Holiday Times…brought to you by Challenge Dairy (and by me)

Recently the good people at Challenge Dairy sent me two gift packages of very fun items for my kitchen.  The first package was filled with four different kinds of special spices from Spice Islands, a OXO Stainless Steel Whisk and an OXO POP Container (used to keep my spices fresh).

The second package was Challenge BUTTER!!!!  Two different kinds!  You know how much I love butter!  My husband and I were super impressed that they could send butter in the mail! 

This isn’t just any butter.  Challenge butter is made from cows that are NOT treated with growth hormones.  One of the packages of butter they sent is European Style.  We are saving that very special butter to eat on Thanksgiving Day with homemade dinner rolls!!!!

The package of “regular” butter Challenge Dairy sent was used…along with one of the spices, Chipotle Chile, to make the following easy dish:

Chipotle Chile Hamburger Potato Skillet

1 pound ground meat (beef or venison)
4 medium potatoes, scrubbed and cut into chunks
4 Tablespoons Challenge butter
Chipotle Chile from Spice Islands (to taste)

In a medium skillet, brown ground meat.  In a separate larger skillet, cook potatoes in butter until tender.  Stir in cooked hamburger meat.  Sprinkle potatoes and meat with Chipotle Chile.  (A little bit goes a long way!)

Let me say it again:  A little bit of the Chipotle Chili spice goes a long way!  It has a delicious flavor…but it definitely has a kick!  Mmm, but it’s good!

This meal is a great one to make on a busy day when you’re preparing for the holidays.  Or a couple days after Thanksgiving when you want anything but turkey!
