You bet, Bucky!

The veggie risotto recipe is at home in a cook book somewhere. I'll do my best to remember to dig it out tonight. If not, just remind me!

Here's the Mexican Lasagna.

Mexican Lasagna

3 Tbsp EVOO
2 lb ground chicken or turkey (low-fat--look for the 7% fat or less)
2 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
½ red onion, chopped
1 (14 oz) can stewed tomatoes or fire roasted chopped tomatoes
1 c medium (I use mild) heat taco sauce
1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained
1 c frozen corn kernels
Salt
8 (8”) spinach flour tortillas (I use whole wheat)
2 ½ c shredded Cheddar cheese or shredded pepper jack
2 scallions finely chopped

Preheat oven to 425F.

Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 Tbsp EVOO. Add chicken and season with chili powder, cumin, and red onion. Brown the meat, 5 minutes. Add stewed tomatoes and the taco sauce. Add black beans and corn. Heat the moisture through, 2-3 minutes, then season with salt, to taste.

Coat a shallow baking dish (9x13”) with remaining EVOO (I use non-stick spray). Cut the tortillas in half or quarters to make them easy to layer with. Build lasagna in layers of meat and beans, then tortillas, then cheese. Repeat: meat, tortilla cheese. Bake lasagna 12-15 minutes until cheese is brown and bubbly.

As you know I made this dish last night...another chicken dish to add to my repertoire!
Since you like to know about changes...firstly I have the chicken cut in 10 pieces (breast is 4) tips off wings..just my way of cooking all chicken braies and stews....this way I am able to take the white meat out first when cooking as it does cook faster than the dk..I learned this from David Roengarten..and its become a habit!
As you already know I cooked the bacon first w/a tad of canola oil..removed bacon and cooked chicken in that fat. Although I didnt use this method w/the lamb it's something I have done when browning meat for stews.
After removing chicken I cooked onion and garlic and left in pan when deglazing w/red wine.. I cooked mushrooms in a seperate pan w/butter...After deglazing added everything bk in and voilla a great dish.
Thanks!
PS I think the use of the portabellas is an interesting touch due to their meatiness.

Good idea Bang.

I always use hot sauce after they are cooked, but your idea sounds good.

Hi, there! I was looking for a chicken casserole recipe, but found your chix parmesan recipe instead. It sounds great! I have a few questions, though. Is hungarian paprika better/different than the kind that's labled simply paprika? Is parmasean reggiano different than regular parmesan cheese? What is evoo? How much butter and evoo do you add? (I don't need an exact amount, just an idea) Do you bake it at 350? Ok, it was a lot of questions...sorry! Thanks for your help!!
