Best chicken enchiladas




1 small can of hatch chile
30 oz. can of cream of chicken
4 cups cooked shredded chicken I used chicken thighs
1 medium onion diced
1/4 of each bell peppers...green, red, yellow, & orange
2 tsp. Of each spice... Ground Cumin, garlic powder, knorr pollo
Chicken broth from where you boiled the chicken
2 cups shredded cheese (I used Monterey cheese)
20 corn tortillas soften in oil
6 oz. Velveeta Cheese
In a large pot over medium heat add about 2 tbsp. oil and let it heat up a bit then add chicken, onions, and bell peppers, cook until onion is translucent stir often do not leave unattended.
Once onion is cooked add the dry spices mix and cook for 2 minutes then pour 1/2 cup of chicken broth mix and cook until all of the broth has reduced and evaporated, set aside.
In a pan add cream of chicken, Velveeta Cheese, and 1/2 cup of chicken broth, you can add more cheese,  it just depends on how cheesy you want it, I like the mixture to be creamy and cheesy mix over medium heat stirring constantly, once the cheese is melted set aside
In a small pan add oil about a 1/4 cup heat it up and dip one corn tortilla at a time for about 30 seconds at a time on each side, flipping it over once take out let it drip the extra oil back into the pan place on a plate, repeat with the rest of the corn tortillas, once the tortillas are soften you are ready to make enchiladas.
Place a tortilla on a plate fill the tortillas with chicken mixture and sprinkle with Monterey cheese roll and place on a baking dish or in another plate (I used another plate and warmed them up in the microwave just long enough to melt the cheese inside the tortillas) pour cheesy enchilada sauce over the completed warm enchiladas and spread evenly over the top, garnish with Pico De Gallo and avocado, serve with rice and beans.
But if using a baking dish then roll the tortilla and place in the baking dish. repeat until enough tortillas fill your baking dish – or until the chicken mixture is all used up, pour cheesy enchilada sauce over the completed enchiladas and spread evenly over the top, covered with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes, remove foil for 5 minutes, cook until sauce is bubbling, tortilla edges might be slightly crisp if you do not pour sauce all over...

Conchitas con carne picada



2 lbs. Ground meat drain fat
1/2 onion diced
2 tbsp. oil
1 package small shells
2 tbsp. ground cumin
2 tbsp. ground garlic
2tbsp. knorr pollo
1 small can tomato sauce
6 cups water
In a pot add meat crumble and cook until pink is gone, pull meat out and set aside.
In the same pot add oil and add shells fry until golden browned.
Once it has browned then add cooked meat and all of the above ingredients stir well, bring to a boil and cover with pot lid, cook for 20 minutes or until the shells are tender taste to test for tenderness, be careful not to burn yourself. 
Now yes it sounds weird but trust me it really makes your Mexican pastas taste so good. I use this secret ingredient that I've never told anyone I always just give you the way I would do it, or everyone does it... but here is my secret ingredient I use for all my Mexican pastas from fideo, macaron, estrellitas, sometimes in my freshly made beans, it's Velveeta cheese yes Velveeta cheese...once your pasta is done turn off the heat and drop about 2 oz. Of Velveeta cheese mix until it dissolves.
I also add Velveeta cheese to my spaghetti meat sauce along with 1 cup of shredded cheese. There you go so the next time you make one of the Mexican pastas try it and you will love it...I've yet to try it in the rice. I love adding black pepper to all of my foods on my plate. Mmmm

Strawberry shortcake with Angel foodcake


1-1/2 cups egg whites about 12 medium eggs

1-1/4 cups powdered sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

¼ teaspoon salt

1 cup sugar

Preheat your oven to 350ºF

Sit eggs out on the counter about an hour.

Sift the powdered sugar and flour together three times into a large bowl, yes 3 times.

Use a fine mesh strainer for sifting.

Separate egg white from the yoke, place the egg whites in a clean dry mixing bowl, add cream of tartar, extracts, and salt, beat on high speed. gradually add the granulated sugar, beating until the sugar is dissolved and stiff peaks form.

Gradually fold in the flour and powdered sugar mixture a ¼ cup at a time.

Pour batter slowly into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan, and gently cut through batter with a knife to remove air pockets.

Set on the bottom of the oven rack to bake, not the center nor the top but at the lowest your oven rack will go.

I used cupcake liners, I wanted smaller portions and didn't want to mess with cutting it and baked it for about 15 to 20 minutes, keep an eye out once you see all the cracks on top and it's golden brown the cake is done.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched.

Immediately invert pan, but cool completely before removing cake from pan, use a butter knife around the edges to loosen the cake.

Enjoy

Ice Cream Cone Cake Balls






Bake the cake as directed on the box, using a 9-by-13-inch cake pan. Let cool completely, roll, and dip 4 dozen cake balls or less depending on how big you make them, I use a cookie scoop.

Crumble the cooled cake into a large mixing bowl,
break it in half, and rub the two pieces together over a large bowl, making sure to crumble any large pieces that fall off. You can also use a fork to break any larger pieces of cake apart Repeat until the entire cake is crumbled into a fine texture. If you have large pieces mixed in, the cake balls may turn out lumpy and dry and break apart. You should not see any large pieces of cake.

Add 3/4 of the of frosting, mix it into the crumbled cake, using the back of a large metal spoon, I use gloves and mix by hand, until thoroughly combined. If you use the entire container, the cake balls will be too moist.

The mixture should be moist enough to roll into 1 1/2-inch balls and still hold a round shape. After rolling the cake balls by hand, place them on a wax paper-covered baking sheet.

I leave my cake balls at room temperature, but you can chill for 5 minutes in the the freezer.

Place the candy coating in a deep, microwave-safe plastic or glass bowl. These bowls make it easier to cover the cake balls completely with candy coating while holding the bowl

Melt the candy melt/ chocolate bark, following the instructions on the package. Microwave on medium power for 30 seconds at a time should not be longer than 90 seconds, (don't warm up all all the 90 seconds, this will ruin your candy melt/chocolate) stirring with a spoon in between add 1 tbsp. Shorting to the candy or chocolate to make it flow easier melt it all together at the same time. You can also use a double boiler. Either way, make sure you do not overheat the candy melt/ chocolate bark..

Now you're ready to coat.

Place one ball at a time into the bowl of candy coating roll in the coating quickly with a fork pull out, If you're using a stick dip the tip of the stick in the melted coating and insert into the cakeball let it rest while you do the rest Spoon extra coating over any uncoated areas of the cake ball to make sure it is completely covered in candy coating. Then light up tap lightly to drip any extra coating back into the bowl Avoid stirring it in the coating, because cake crumbs can fall off into the coating tap the stick several times on the edge of the bowl until the excess coating falls off and back into the bowl. This technique also creates a smooth surface on the outside of the cake ball.

Transfer the coated cake ball to another wax paper-covered baking sheet to dry. Let the coated cake ball slide right off the fork. Some coating may pool around the base of the ball onto the wax paper. If so, simply take a toothpick and use it to draw a line around the base of the cake ball before the coating sets. Once the coating sets, you can break off any unwanted coating, for the cake balls on a stick you can lay it on the wax paper with stick facing up or you can use a cake pop holder and face upright.

Repeat with the remaining cake balls and let dry completely. You can bag them in a clear baggie once they are completely set.

If you have extra candy coating left over, pour it into a resealable plastic bag save for another use.

You can make the cake balls ahead of time and store them in an airtight container on the counter or in the refrigerator for several days.

Easy Curry Chicken




Mama is back in the kitchen!!!

I've made A little Indian and North African cuisines of Morocco.

Super easy tasty meal.

I made curry chicken with couscous and Jasmine rice, but we all liked it with the wheat garlic olive oil couscous.

I used a reduced fat coconut milk...  Cutting fat, sugars, cholesterol, and sodium whenever I can.

Curry Chicken with a Garlic Couscous

2 lbs. raw chicken breast, boneless, skinless, cubed
2 cups chicken broth or water
2½ cups canned reduced fat light coconut milk, divided
2 cups dry wheat whole-grain couscous
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. curry powder
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
3 medium carrots cut into matchstick-sized pieces
1 tbsp. Knorr pollo
1/4 onion sliced

Heat chicken broth, ½ cup coconut milk, in medium pot over medium high heat and bring to boil, gradually stir in couscous, remove from heat, let stand covered for 5 minutes remove cover and fluff with a fork.

Combine carrots flour, knorr pollo and curry powder in a big bowl add chicken mix well, toss gently to coat.

Heat oil in large pan over medium heat add chicken and cook for 4 minutes then add onion cook until chicken is no longer pink, add 2 cups coconut milk bring to a boil reduce heat to low and gently boil, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. To thicken up in a cup add 1 tbsp cornstarch and 2 tbsp. Water mix until all lumps are gone add to the cooked food and cook for 2 minutes.

Place ½ cup of couscous and top with ¾ cup curried chicken.

Enjoy
