Ok... So Wednesday I have a date, and planned on cooking for the girl. Just a quick background, I am 23, she is 22, we have been on 3-4 dates. I am somewhat decent at cooking.

I want something a bit different, but not something too crazy. Something a little more than spaghetti, but nothing crazy like rack of lamb. Something that will impress her. (plan on doing the candle light etc)

I would prefer something not to difficult, but am willing to try whatever
. Any type of food suggestions are also fine. Maybe something a little spicy? We both like spicy food.

Any suggestions?

I have a great suggestion! New Mexico Style Enchiladas (a la BH)

Tortilla Chips
Ground Beef (1 lb)
1 Green pepper (chopped)
5-6 Green onions (chopped)
Green olive (1/3 cup - sliced)
Black olive (small can - sliced)
Jalapeno to taste (sliced or chopped fine)
Cheese (Colby Jack - shredded)
Can of enchilada sauce (red or green)
Sour cream

You can do all the prep ahead of time and put the ingredients in containers in the frig and throw it together in a few minutes. Then cook it for 35 -40 minutes.

Fry the ground beef and drain. While it's in the pan, add the green pepper, green onion, green olive, black olive and jalapeno and cook for 5 minutes more, gently stirring a few times.

Spray a baking dish with pam. Glass or metal is fine, but it should be about 9x11" to 11x13".

Put a layer of chips on the bottom of the pan. I smash them a little so they break and lay fairly flat. Then put half the ground beef mixture on top. Pour half of the enchilada sauce on and top with half of the cheese. Then add another layer of chips, meat, sauce and cheese.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes and cut with a serrated knife. Serve with sour cream and chips on the side and maybe a salad.

This is a killer meal. Even if you don't use it for your date, you should try it sometime.

Oh, cool! Let me know how it goes! I mean the cooking part, of course.

It went great.

I actually ended up making jalapeno and spicy chicken quesadillas. With spanish rice, salsa, and sour cream.

Although I am going to try your idea at some point for sure

...try a homemade pizza. I'm not a pastry guy, so I always use the pilsbury pizza crust in the can. I always make fresh sauce, and use fresh ingredients. Top that off with some candles, and nice red wine and some Sinatra, and it's all good!
