Going to make up some chicken breasts stuffed with Asiago cheese, and cappicola. Going to flour, egg wash and panko the breasts. Then, bake. Served with some kind of potato and figure out what to do with a basket of yellow heirloom tomatoes I was given...

Easy Mexican rice: make regular rice - 1 cup rice and 2 cups water - but replace 1/2 cup of the water with salsa. I use canned refried beans but I doctor them up with salsa, cilantro and lime juice and top with the same cheese I used on the main dish.

I saw your recipe for easy Mexican rice in some other thread today and was thinking of trying it. Do you think there would be any problem doing it with brown rice? We don't use white rice at my house.

I don't think so. The salsa will just cook longer with the rice, which won't hurt it.

Taxi, authentic Mexican rice never has any chunks like Spanish Rice does. I don't see why it couldn't be done with brown rice with more water and cooking time.

I posted this a long time ago..

My friend owns a Mexican restaurant and I could never get it just right until she taught me how. Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to a sauce pan, and saute one cup of dry rice for a minute or two. Add 1 and 3/4 cups of water, 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, 1 tsp. of cumin, and 1/2 tsp of salt. Stir and bring to the boil. Cover, and cut heat to the lowest flame. Let it simmer for 15 min. Fluff with a fork. Perfect Mexican rice.
Do not try to substitute any other tomato product.....it just won't work.
BTW, I buy tomato paste in a tube rather than by the can. It's always ready for this recipe, and others, in the fridge without opening a whole can.

Hawaiian Style Beef Stew

(I could have sworn I posted this earlier today, :shrug: )


Very excited to be having a small piece from home
for dinner tonight, Beef Stew Plate lunch!
Maybe I should make some Macaromi Salad to go along side
I kinda follow this recipe, with my own addiotions of course
The weather is horrid here in the middle of the desert,
Hurricane Odile has made a mess of things,
so I need something warm and familiar

We're having country-fried steak with cream gravy, mashed potatoes, buttered green beans, iced tea, cinnamon-streusel cake for dessert.
