  • We are women, we cook! How about a recipe?

    I don't know about you but I am cooking dinners right in the middle of playing mtt's so I thought heck let's share some recipes....Omg this is absolutely delicious..I made it last week for the first time although I'm not sure why it took me so long being from Texas and all..The recipe came from The Pioneer woman she has her own show on The Food Network . The link is here for the recipe or just follow directions below! http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2...tortilla-soup/ Anyway give this a try and if you have a recipe too share please post it here. I love to try new things! TORTILLA SOUP: Ingredients 2 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil 1-1/2 teaspoon Cumin 1 teaspoon Chili Powder 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder 1/2 teaspoon Salt 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil 1 cup Diced Onion 1/4 cup Diced Green Bell Pepper 1/4 cup Red Bell Pepper 3 cloves Garlic, Minced 1 can (10 Oz. Can) Rotel Tomatoes And Green Chilies 32 ounces, fluid Low Sodium Chicken Stock 3 Tablespoons Tomato Paste 4 cups Hot Water 2 cans (15 Oz. Can) Black Beans, Drained 3 Tablespoons Cornmeal Or Masa 5 whole Corn Tortillas, Cut Into Uniform Strips Around 2 To 3 Inches _____ FOR THE GARNISHES: Sour Cream Diced Avocado Diced Red Onion Salsa Or Pico De Gallo Grated Monterey Jack Cheese Cilantro Preparation Instructions Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix cumin, chili pepper, garlic powder, and salt. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil on chicken breasts, then sprinkle a small amount of spice mix on both sides. Set aside the rest of the spice mix. Place chicken breasts on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is done. Use two forks to shred chicken. Set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a pot over medium high heat. Add onions, red pepper, green pepper, and minced garlic. Stir and begin cooking, then add the rest of the spice mix. Stir to combine, then add shredded chicken and stir. Pour in Rotel, chicken stock, tomato paste, water, and black beans. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 45 minutes, uncovered. Mix cornmeal with a small amount of water. Pour into the soup, then simmer for an additional 30 minutes. Check seasonings, adding more if needed---add more chili powder if it needs more spice, and be sure not to undersalt. Turn off heat and allow to sit for 15 to 20 minutes before serving. Five minutes before serving, gently stir in tortilla strips. Ladle into bowls, then top with sour cream, diced red onion, diced avocado, pico de gallo, and grated cheese, if you have it! (The garnishes really make the soup delicious.) Share this Post

        Nice and interesting thread, and yes i always manage to cook dinner while playing poker too

        I have one recipe, Chicken Enchiladas, and i just love it!

        Ingredients

        4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
        2 onion, chopped
        5dl sour cream
        1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
        1 teaspoon salt (optional)
        1 tablespoon Sambal oelek
        8 flour tortillas
        200g grated Cheddar cheese


        Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
        In a medium, non-stick skillet over medium heat, cook chicken until no longer pink and juices run clear. Cube the chicken and return it to the skillet. Add the onion, sour cream, and ground white pepper, salt and sambal olelek.

        Roll even amounts of the mixture in the tortillas. Arrange in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover with Cheddar cheese. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven 20 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before serving. And Serve with sallad.

        Ps. sorry for the dl and g. If someone dont know what it stands for so its:
        dl= decilitre
        g= grams

        Simple and yummi!

              No recipes, a cooking tip. (I ran a rather successful restaurant for a few years on this).

              Use no fat whatsoever in cooking, and stay as far away as possible from eggs.

              Get your (possibly clean) hands on some top-grade olive oil - the effectiveness of the tip being directly proportional to the quality of the oil. Use the oil raw after cooking.

              Your dishes will therefore be as good as the quality of the produce you buy - plus bonus points for the quality of the oil on them.

              The upside: you can cook just about anything basic this way.

              The downside: you''ll probably live to 120, so try to live a dangerous life while you're at it.

              Clue: Yes, I am Italian.

                  Swedish meatballs Delicious............ These Swedish meatballs are cooked on stovetop then finished in the oven. Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups soft bread crumbs, about 3 slices bread 1 tablespoon dried minced onion or 1/4 cup finely chopped onion 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 3/4 cup milk 2 pounds ground beef 2 tablespoons butter or margarine 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 tablespoons flour 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) condensed beef broth 1 cup half-and-half or light cream Preparation: Combine bread crumbs, onion, salt, pepper, nutmeg and 3/4 cup milk in a large mixing bowl. Let milk soak into crumbs for a few minutes. Gently stir in ground beef until well blended; form into balls about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Brown meatballs in butter and oil in a large skillet; remove with a slotted spoon to a 2 1/2-quart baking dish. Drain off all but 2 tablespoons of drippings; stir flour into drippings. Cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly. Stir in beef broth and cream. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens and boils for a minute. Pour over Swedish meatballs in baking dish. Bake Swedish meatballs at 325° for 35 to 45
