From: "PK Placko" This is the most delicious (and easiest!) chocolate cake -- that I havebeen making for decades. Its only sin was oil which has been replacedsuccessfully with applesauce.Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add liquids, covering with water.Mix thoroughly, and pour into 8 inch square pan sprayed with Pam. Bake at350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Frost with your favorite whitefrosting.**NOTE: If you aren't fussy, you can make this as a "snack cake", mixing,baking and serving from the same pan. No need to spray with Pam.**My mother always used the traditional butter cream frosting on this cake.Anyone have an outstanding white frosting recipe?FATFREE DIGEST V96 #56From the Fatfree Vegetarian recipe list.

chicken taco soup

Chicken Taco Soup
1 onion, chopped
1 (16 ounce) can chili beans
1 (15 ounce) can black beans
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning
3 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts**
shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
sour cream (optional)
crushed tortilla chips (optional)
DIRECTIONS: Place the onion, chili beans, black beans, corn, tomato sauce, beer, and diced tomatoes in a slow cooker. Add taco seasoning and stir to blend. Lay chicken breasts on top of the mixture pressing down slightly until just covered by the other ingredients. Set slow cooker for low heat, cover, and cook for 5 hours. Remove chicken breasts from the soup, and allow to cool long enough to be handled. Stir the shredded chicken back into the soup, and continue cooking for 2 hours. Serve topped with shredded cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips if desired.
**One thing I do is pick up one of those roasted chickens from the deli then just cut the meat off that. It's easy and it gives it some extra flavor.
