Smoked Chicken Queso

My family and I visited a local restaurant last year. We ordered the brisket queso appetizer, which looked and tasted very good. Sadly, I was unable to enjoy the dish because it was very spicy and contained beef, which I very rarely eat. Read the rest of this entry »

I love most vegetables, except for corn. Last week I decided to cook some fresh green beans. I had some roasted black walnut oil on hand that I bought several weeks ago, and thought that I’d use it instead of olive oil.

Supreme Salad

I am very proud to eat this salad! Mainly because the romaine lettuce in it was home grown. Last year I had a patio garden.  You might recall when I posted the green beans from my proud harvest, which boasted a variety of herbs and vegetables.

My Fried Chicken

Fried chicken is one dish that, in most cases, will have your taste buds tingling and wanting just one more piece. Many of us use our seasoned cast iron skillets.

There’s usually an anticipation in my home. You might be wondering, “What’s the big deal, it’s just fried chicken.”  Well, the main reason is because eating fried foods may be good to the taste buds, but very unhealthy. Therefore, I generally bake or grill chicken in my home.
With that being said, I’d like to share my recipe with you. Please enjoy and use

sparingly!

Today has been a little unusual. I thought that I would be celebrating the anniversary of my birthday, however, almost everyone in my home has the flu.  I decided to make chicken soup.  It turned out pretty good, was very soothing and, I pray, therapeutic.

 

 

 

Here’s the recipe. I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did.

This recipe was adapted from a recipe that I clipped from the Houston Chronicle more than 10 years ago.  It is simply scrumptious and will definitely be a family favorite.

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups picante sauce
  • 1 10-oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 large red bell pepper
  • 1  tab. lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup dairy sour cream
  • 3/4 cup 3-oz. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3/4 cup 3-oz. shredded cheddar or additional Monterey Jack
  • Shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 c sliced black olives

Directions:

  1. Brown meat with onion and garlic; drain
  2. Add picante sauce, spinach, tomato sauce, tomatoes, bell pepper, lime juice and salt.
  3. Simmer uncovered 15 minutes, stirring occasionally
  4. Arrange 6 tortillas on bottom and up sides of lightly greased 13x9x2 inch baking dish, overlapping as necessary
  5. Top with half the meat mixture
  6. Arrange remaining tortillas overlapping as necessary
  7. Spread sour cream evenly over tortillas
  8. Top with remaining meat mixture
  9. Bake at 350 degrees about 30 min or until hot and bubbly
  10. Remove from oven; sprinkle with cheeses
  11. Let stand 10 min; cut into squares  to serve
  12. Garnish with lettuce, if desired, and olives
  13. Serve with additional picante sauce

Twist:  Ground Turkey as opposed to ground beef, black olives, omitted tomato sauce, poblano peppers instead of red bell pepper
