It’s Monday again. The good thing about it being Monday is that there is no school today. Thank you, Christopher Columbus!
I can’t believe I missed my blog birthday! On October 10th my blog turned 3!
I have really enjoyed doing my blog these last three years. It’s not easy with a full time job and taking care of a family but I love it! Thank you for following me. I truly hope that I have inspired you in one way or another.
Let’s get on with some food!
Today I am sharing a recipe that I absolutely love. My Mom used to make this but would use pork. In an effort to make it a little healthier I decided to use chicken.
I love serving this with Mexican rice.
My husband is always asking me that if I am going to cook something with pepper to make sure the peppers are not spicy. Well, there is really no way of telling if a pepper is spicy just by looking at it. I can usually tell once I’ve cut them and I smell them but for the most part you can’t tell. So tread wisely if you are not too big on pepper. You can of course use less pepper but that doesn’t guarantee that they won’t be spicy. Remember…do not rub your face or eyes when roasting or chopping any type of pepper.
Pollo con Chile Poblano
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1 small tomato, diced
- 2 tblspn chicken bouillon powder (I like Knorr)
- 4-5 poblano chiles, roasted, peeled and chopped (veins and seeds removed)
- 2 tblspn vegetable or olive oil
- 1 tspn salt
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 5 chicken breasts, chopped into small pieces
- 6 cups water
Heat oil in large pot. Add salt to chicken and add to hot pot. Cook chicken until no longer pink in the middle. Add chopped onion and cook for about 4 minutes. Add minced garlic and continue to cook for another 4 minutes. Add chopped tomatoes and cook for another 4 minutes or so. Add Poblano chiles and continue to cook for about 5 minutes. Make sure you stir everything together after every addition. Add 6 cups of water and chicken bouillon. Stir well to dissolve the bouillon. Allow everything to simmer for about 15 minutes. Adjust salt if needed and enjoy.
If served with rice on the side the broth melds really well with it. If I don’t have rice on the side then corn tortillas are a must! I don’t even know if this is a stew or a soup. I guess it doesn’t matter as long as it’s good!
