  • Hi :) I was movin into my house, and my stove was temp. un avail., so what I did was I went to Safeway, and got some pre-cooked chicken (rotissary), cream of mushroom soup, with garlic, cheese, corn tortillas, green chillies, and red enchallada sauce. I shredded the chicken, added the cream of mushroom soup to the chicken, put the mixture into a softened taco shell, put some cheese on top of the mixture, closed the shell, put a little enchalada sauce on top, then some more cheese, microwaved, until cheese was melted :) Also, micropwave buttitos, microwave soup, cook pan cakes on your hot plate (cheap when you buy the mix),grilled cheese, tortillas with butter,stir fry, eggs... I wish you the best of luck :)

  • A lot of the ladies have mentioned some good ideas but I would also suggest you invest in a crock pot to help you. You can find one at thrift store for a reasonable price. GL

  • Can I ask why you don't have a stove? I really don't have recipes or ideas that can be made on a hotplate and I don't cook in the microwave.

  • did you know if you can't buy a stove because of financial reasons, the welfare office most likely will help you purchase one. I had to assist a family I used to work with in getting one when they moved into a home without one.
