Chili Verde

I had a request for the chili verde recipe so here it is, please note I did can mine but this is not a proven recipe.  I tend to like my food to be a bit spicy so feel free to half the spices taste and add more as needed.

Ingredients:img_3740
1 T olive oil
1 t. dried oregano
1 T ground cumin
3 T chili powder
1 (19oz) can of green enchilada sauce
32oz diced tomatoes with juice
1 cup hot salsa verde
2 cups finely chopped onions
2 T pressed fresh garlic
2 pounds diced green chilies (fresh or frozen)
1 t lime juice
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
1 whole chicken cooked and shredded

Instructions:
Cook onions and garlic until onions are translucent, add tomatoes and salsa verde.  Stir well then add the green chilies and enchilada sauce.  Once combined add spices and stir well then add shredded chicken.  Simmer for 30 minutes serve garnished with cilantro and lime.  This can be served over rice or eaten with a bit of cheese and tortilla chips.

Notes:

I used a rotisserie chicken in this recipe and it was still delicious.  I also bought the small cans of green chilies and they tasted fine in the recipe (I believe Walmart sells the 1 pound cans).

 

Meat Pig

I went to pick up our pig yesterday, we named her Lola.  She is an Old Spot Yorkshire cross that we plan to grow out for ourselves to eat.  I might not have planned my trip the best since the crate I grabbed didn’t have a door on it so I had to use a bag of shavings to block the entrance.  I also should have taken the truck so that the stinky pig would have been in the back instead of right behind my seat.  I have to say that Lola was not to happy about being snatched from her pigpen and placed in a new pigpen.  She has yet to give me any hope we might be friends as she charges the fence everytime I go out there.  I am sure that she will warm up to us in time but until then I will continue to not get in her pigpen!

Potato Ham Chowder

Life Moore Abundantly

Have you ever decided that you wanted something different for supper, but didn’t really have all the ingredients for the recipes you scoured the web for? Well that’s how I felt about supper yesterday evening. So I decided to use what I had and figure it out along the way. I didn’t take any picture because I was scared of what it would taste like, but wow! I really got the approval from the family on this one. It was very tasty and the only thing that could have made this chowder better would have been homemade bread to go with it. This is the perfect cold weather meal to warm you to the bones…..
