My own creation "la fiesta chicken"
I have been very lazy yesterday after work and today lets just say it is 4:11 and I am still in my p.j.'s. last night I was trying to think of something to cook I knew I wanted some soup with chicken and rice in it but what else? Well I had a pack of pinto beans mmm
Okay so here is how it goes,
Boil your chicken
take 1 green pepper diced and one red onion diced and put it in a pot, add about 1/4 of the chicken stock from the boiled chicken.
I then put in some fresh garlic
red pepper flakes just a shake
a shake of cumin
a pack of taco seasoning
a can of diced tomatoes with basil and oregano flavor
a jar of salsa
about 2 cups dry pinto beans(next time I will boil them first)
a jar of canned tomato juice
a can of fiesta nacho soup
a can of cheese soup
a can of rotel
a pack of frozen corn
a small carton of sour cream
It was a little thick so I poured in some milk
stir it up and then I added about 2 cups of 10 min brown rice
I didn't think that was enough vegetables for the boys so I added some fresh broccoli just one head.
shred your chicken into it and put the lid on and let all those yummy flavor cook together
I also added about a 1/4 of a block of Velveeta cheese about 10 min before we ate it.
Before serving put a spoonful on sour cream on top and a few green onions and then sprinkle some blue corn chips ( any kind would do but we like the blue)
ENJOY!It was a little bit spicy but you can omit the red pepper and the rotel I am not a spicy fan and I thought it was very delish, my boys even like it!

I must say my choice in music really makes me what to be in Mexico laying on the beach with a Miami vice in one hand and soaking up the sun!

You should watch the movie Julie and Julia. You would LOVE it. She has a blog and talks about all of her recipes. It is good. And no, it is not you that is crazy, the whole wide world is......except for us.
