For dressed up pork & beans:

 

 

Take the regular baked beans and add minced onions, bacon bits and a small amount (to taste) of BBQ sauce. What a difference! Slow cook them over a medium low heat for about an hour until every taste gets mixed and you've got baked beans people will rave about.

Even though it's no big deal and all the ingredients are readily available, there is nothing better than home made tacos. We simply brown the ground beef with whatever taco seasoning we can find, Taco Bell brand or Old El Paso brand- they're all the same. Fresh is best.

made this over the weekend. IF you like spicy this is great.

 

Arroz con Pollo with Salsa Verde

 

 

 

 

1 (3-pound) whole chicken, cut into 10 serving pieces

4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 teaspoons ground cumin

11/2 tablespoons dried oregano

2 teaspoons sweet paprika

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 dried chorizo sausages (about 1 1/4 pounds), cut into 1-inch chunks

1 Spanish onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped

2 bay leaves

2 cups long grain white rice

1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes with liquid

3 cups low-sodium chicken broth, warm

1 cup pimento stuffed green olivesPreheat oven to 350 degrees F. Rinse the chicken pieces and pat dry. In a small bowl, blend 2 tablespoons oil, salt, pepper, cumin, oregano, paprika and cayenne. Rub each piece of chicken with the spice paste and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes for the flavor to develop.

 

In a heavy, ovenproof casserole with lid, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Fry the chorizo over medium heat until it is crispy and renders its fat. Remove the chorizo with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Place the chicken in the pan, skin side down, and brown on all sides, about 10 minutes Remove from pan and set aside. Make a sofrito by sauteing the onion, garlic, bell pepper and bay leaves; cooking until the vegetables are very soft and almost dissolved. Stir in the rice so the grains are well coated with the sofrito.

 

Add the tomatoes and broth, season with salt and pepper. Return the chorizo and chicken to the pan. Bring the mixture to a boil and let simmer for 5 minutes. Cover and transfer pot to oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken is done and the rice is tender and has absorbed the liquid. Scatter the olives on top of the chicken and rice before serving.

 

Salsa Verde:

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced

1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves

1/4 cup blanched almonds, toasted

1/2 cup olive oil

1 lime, juicedTo prepare the Salsa Verde: In a mortar and pestle or food processor, mash together all ingredients to form a loose paste. Garnish Arroz Con Pollo with Salsa Verde before serving.

Tacos are my weakness.

 

It's really easy for me to eat too many tacos.

 

If we make tacos I usually eat about 10-12.

Sam's makes a fresh salsa that truly, I cannot make better myself.

 

I have a good friend from Mexico and she says that is even better than the stuff they make there. It's in the refrigerated section. We eat it by the ton at our house. You can make a great chicken topping with it. Just cook the chicken halfway and then drop this stuff on top. It's already got the onions, tomatoes, green peppers & garlic. Nothing to add but the dish to put it on.
