    • This is a good, quick, and spicy dish that I eat at least once a month. Using a rotisserie chicken makes it pretty easy. I freeze the leftover skin and carcass and make chicken broth later when i feel like it. This makes me feel better about paying for precooked chicken.

      Chicken Chilaquiles (adapted from Martha Stewart recipe)
      You can do this in about 30-40 minutes.
      Ingredients

      Serves 4
      1 tablespoon oil
      4 cloves garlic, chopped
      1/2 of a white or red onion, diced
      1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
      4 chipotle chile peppers (the kind that come canned in adobo sauce) finely chopped (about 2 heaping tablespoons), plus 1 tablespoon adobo sauce (from same can)
      Coarse salt
      1 ~2 lb. cooked rotisserie chicken, skinned and shredded , carcass discarded
      1/2 cup lightly packed cilantro leaves, chopped, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
      Tortilla chips
      Reduced fat sour cream
      Feta or cotija cheese

      Directions

      Combine oil and onions in a large (3-to-4-quart) saucepan. Cook over medium heat until translucent, stirring occasionally. Add garlic. Cook until fragrant and sizzling, 1 to 2 minutes.
      Add crushed tomatoes, chipotles and adobo, and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil; season with salt to taste. Reduce heat and simmer rapidly until lightly thickened, 6 to 8 minutes.
      Add chicken and cook, stirring, until hot, about 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in chopped cilantro.
      Divide chips among four shallow bowls; top with chicken mixture and sauce. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, sour cream, and cheese. Serve.

      It ends up looking something like this (not my photo):

      • I'm definitely gonna keep that one in the recipe book. Sounds awesome. I love cooking with chipotle peppers. Tasty. But I'm limited in my spicyness because my old lady is prego and for unknown reasons to me or her, she has become a whimp when it comes to spicy foods. (she thinks Chili's salsa is hot as hell)

          Tell her spicy foods will speed up her contractions and help her go into labor earlier.

              I would but we are already at risk at an early labor. She is on bed rest for high blood pressure. Might have to take him in the next 2-3 weeks. And she is 32 weeks right now.

              Decided on a steak, to make it food thread related.

                Oooh. That's early. Anything prior to 36 weeks is considered premature and the baby has to stay in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit. Good luck with everything

                  Yea, I know, which will suck not being able to take him home. Another doctor appointment today. Last week at 31 weeks, he was 3 lbs 12 oz. So he is going to be decently big. So if he has to come early, I hope that is beneficial to him.

                              Freebirds or Chipotle was almost a bi-weekly thing for me. Both were relatively close.

                              That and Panda Express. Cheap chinese food in heaps and heaps. Yum.

                                Chipotle has NOTHING on Freebirds. Oh, and I havent had P.E. in a while, since there are like a hundred chinese places within about a 20 second drive.
