  • Chicken Enchilada Soup
  • Description
    • When it gets cold out, I love a good soup... especially this one, which I feel in love with years ago when I'd order it at our local Chili's restaurant.
  • Ingredients
    • 1 pound chicken breasts boneless skinless and cut into 1? chunks
    • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt divided
    • 2 tablespoons canola oil
    • 3/4 yellow onion diced (the rest of the onion goes to the topping)
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • 1 garlic clove minced
    • 4 cups chicken broth
    • 1 cup masa harina
    • 4 cups water
    • 1 1/2 cups enchilada sauce or one 12 ounce can
    • 8 ounces cream cheese cheese cut into small cubes
    • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
  • Toppings
    • 2 roma tomatoes diced
    • 1/4 yellow onion diced
    • 1/2 jalapeno deseeded, deveined and minced
    • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
    • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 pinch coarse ground black pepper
    • 1/4 cup cotija cheese crumbles
    • Tortilla Strips
  • Directions
    • In a large dutch oven add the canola oil over medium high heat. Add half the kosher salt to the chicken pieces and add them to the dutch oven. Cook the chicken 3-4 minutes on each side, until just cooked through. Remove the chicken and add in the onions and garlic and lower the heat to medium. Add in the spices and cook for 3-4 minutes until translucent. Add in the chicken broth and whisk. In a large bowl add the masa harina to the water and whisk it together well. Add it into the dutch oven along with the enchilada sauce. Add the chicken back in. Stir well and let simmer for 30-40 minutes on low heat. Add in the cream cheese and cheddar cheese and stir well until melted. Add the topping ingredients, except for the cotija cheese into a bowl together and stir. Top the soup with some of the tomato mixture and some crumbled cheese. To prepare in a Slow Cooker: Add in all the soup ingredients except for the cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Mix really well and cook on low for 7-8 hours (High for 3-4 hours). In the last hour add in the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and stir well. Serve with the toppings as instructed in the recipe.

This Weekend in Hedonism (Segment 3)

  • Cheryl's Recipe Corner!
  • Sheet-Pan Teriyaki Chicken and Pineapple Stir-Fry
  • Description
    • Sometimes I just want something quick and easy to throw together for dinner, and this is that type of meal... and it takes care of my craving for Teriyaki chicken!
  • Ingredients
    • 1/4 cup thick teriyaki sauce (Kikkoman makes a "teriyaki glaze" that is perfect for this!)
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
    • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
    • 1 1/2 cups 1-inch cubes fresh pineapple
    • 2 medium carrots, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch slices
    • 1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 teaspoon sesame seed
    • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Directions
    • Heat oven to 500°F. Spray 18x13-inch rimmed sheet pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat teriyaki sauce, honey and Sriracha sauce with whisk. Add chicken, pineapple, carrots and bell pepper; gently toss to coat. Arrange in single layer on sheet pan. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center (at least 165°F). Serve immediately, garnished with sesame seed and green onions.

  • Maple Old Fashioned
  • Description
    • While I try to stick with Vodka or Rum drinks (they're my favorite alcoholic beverages), I am also a fan of Bourbon and Scotch.  While perusing for a good fall-themed drink, this one caught my eye... Old Fashions, while I love them, can be a little bitter, but the maple syrup will definitely take that bite away and add a taste of fall to your drink!
  • Ingredients
    • 2 ounces rye whiskey or bourbon
    • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
    • Dash of Angostura bitters
    • Orange peel (for garnish)
  • Directions
    • Mix whiskey, maple syrup, bitters, and 1 tsp. water in an old-fashioned glass until syrup is dissolved. Add a single large ice cube, then garnish with orange peel.
  • Russ's Drink Corner
  • Bushmills Black Bush Irish Whiskey
  • Description
    • While this is a blended whiskey roughly 80% of the source for this product is whiskey that was produced from malted barley. The remaining 20% of the volume comes from grain whiskey that is added and blended together. Once the whiskey is blended, it is aged for up to seven years in a combination of previously used sherry casks and bourbon barrels to impart some of the flavors into the spirit.
  • Details
    • Mashbill: 80% malted barley, 20% grain whiskey
    • Proof: 80 (40% ABV)
    • Region: Northern Ireland
    • Color: Golden honey
