On Thursday Jamie posted about a new printable coupon for $1 off Philadelphia Cooking Creme. Since it’s a high value coupon I was surprised to see that it hadn’t hit it’s print limit yet. (Click here to print before it’s gone). It sounded really yummy but I wasn’t really sure what to do with it. So, I searched online recipes and found Tex-Mex Beef & Rice Casserole from the Real Women of Philadelphia. There are lots of other recipes to choose from HERE if you’d like to try something else.
