This is a chunky soup with potato, green chilies, and chopped onions in a chicken broth flavored with oregano and cumin and thickened with heavy cream. Serve with grated jack cheese and tortilla strips.
A host of vegetables are in every bite of this substantial casserole. Onions, garlic, mushrooms, zucchini, tomatoes, oregano and brown sugar are in the sauce, while spinach, cottage cheese, basil, eggs Parmesan and mozzarella make the filling.
This dressing has a cider vinegar and oil base with a smidgen of onion juice and mustard stirred in for bite, and lots of sugar for an overall sweetness. And of course, there are lots of tiny poppy seeds. Makes a sweet cabbage slaw and is perfect over fresh summer fruit.
People who have tasted this thick mix of beans, spices and chicken say: 'So good it'll make you perky and stupid!' I've placed in my workplace's annual Halloween chili cook-off for the last three years. Looks strange -- tastes great! Serve with shredded Monterey Jack cheese and warm flour tortillas.
