Mexican Mole Sauce

No comments: Links to this post


Chocolate is an amazing thing. And when we think of this delicious, super healthy “super food”, we normally conjure up images of sweets, desserts, and flat out indulgence.
I love this recipe for a number of reasons … the least of which is the fact that this gives one more reason to eat chocolate. This time, however, it is in the form of a SAVORY sauce that you put right over pork or chicken.


You’ll Need:

  •     Cayenne pepper to taste
  • ·         Freshly ground black pepper
  • ·         1-1/2 pounds chicken, cubed or cut into strips
  • ·         4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • ·         2 tablespoons mild chili powder
  • ·         2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ·         1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ·         1-1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • ·         4 (14.5-ounce) cans stewed tomatoes

What To Do:
1. In a bowl, combine equal parts cayenne and black pepper to taste. Add chicken and toss gently to coat. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large pot and add chicken. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until just cooked through. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon and reserve.

2. Meanwhile, combine chili powder with cumin, cinnamon and more cayenne pepper and black pepper as desired. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the same pot and add chili powder mix. Stir with a spoon and heat over medium heat until blackened, about 6 to 8 minutes.

3. Reduce heat to low, stir in chocolate, and continue stirring until melted. When chocolate is fully melted, add stewed tomatoes and bring to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring often. Add chicken and continue cooking until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve warm.

Roasted Garlic

No comments: Links to this post

People really enjoy this appetizer when dining at a restaurant but never realize how easy it is to make in the home. Roast up some garlic and eat it as a starter or use it in your favorite recipes that need a garlic twist.

You'll Need
  • Garlic bulbs (as many as you would like)
  • Olive oil (at least one Tablespoon per bulb)
  • Parsley to garnish
  • Bread or crackers to spread garlic on to
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 375 F
  • Take a whole garlic bulb and pull off the excess first outer layer and leave the garlic bulb in tact. Next cut off approximately ¼ of an inch of the garlic stem portions (the pointy ends). You now should have a whole bulb of garlic still in tact with the top stem cut off enough to see the actual garlic cloves. Next place the bulb in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Let the olive oil seep into the garlic cloves and then repeat. Next cover and bake for 45 to 1 hour or until garlic cloves become soft.
  • Let cool a bit. Garnish with parsley. Then peel open and spread garlic on bread.
