Your Own 5-Ingredient Fix

On the Food Network there is a show called "Five-Ingredient Fix", which deals with recipes that contain only five ingredients.

It got me to wondering--do you have any favorite recipes that only call for five ingredients or less?

My scotch shortbread contains 4 ingredients:
SCOTCH SHORTBREAD
1 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour
maraschino cherries
--Cream butter and sugar together and work in flour. Chill; maybe an hour, or even overnight. Roll out to 1/4" thick on a lightly floured surface; cut with cookie cutters and place 1/2 maraschino cherry in the center of each. Bake @ 325 degrees F. on an ungreased cookie sheet until ever-so-lightly browned, maybe 15 minutes.

Ingredients of my Spicy Pork Burrito recipe are tomato sauce, El Pato hot chile sauce, refried beans, browned cubed pork, and flour tortillas. Despite its obvious simplicity, the concoction has its fans.

That sounds delicious, Tucker; you could have that made and be chowin' down before you got back from a fast-food place. I'm making this one for sure.

My buffalo chicken dip! :)

Chicken
Hot Sauce
Ranch
Cream Cheese
Yellow Shredder Cheese
Well, the ingredients look fabulous...do you just add however much you feel looks right and then mix it all together? I'm guessing you cook and then shred the chicken... I have to try this Saturday, it looks to good to ignore...

Good stuff indeed, Dabs. I love shepherd's pie. Mine contains more than five ingredients, but this is a beautiful 5-ingredient recipe.
