Slow Cooker Mexican Stew

5 cups water

1-1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into small, bite-sized cubes

1 lg. can white hominy rinsed and drained

1-10 oz can whole tomatoes w/ green chilis (I use frozen stewed tomatoes from the garden)

1-1/2 cups frozen white corn (you can use yellow--doesn't make that much of a difference)

1-1/2 cups chopped onion

2-4 oz. cans mild diced green chilis

2 poblano peppers, cored and chopped

1 cup medium salsa

2 tablespoons chicken bouillon

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 tsp. chipotle chili powder

2 tsp. mild chili powder

2 bay leaves

1 tsp. ground cumin

1/2 tsp. black pepper

Cook in your crock pot for 8 to 10 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and chopped green onions. Add a dollop of sour cream on top, if desired.

    I made this in my crock pot yesterday and it was delicious. Instead of adding the chicken bouillon, I used 3 cups of water and 2 cups of canned chicken broth. I served it with shredded cheese and tortilla chips and the family just loved it. (Coworker comment)

Arugula and Fennel Salad

Tuesday, July 18, 2006

This simple salad using traditional Italian ingredients benefits from the peppery spiciness of the arugula and the crisp refreshing flavor of the fennel. Use a vegetable peeler to shave the Parmesan for the garnish just like they do in the finest restaurants.

Arugula and Fennel Salad (Insalata di Rucola e Finocchio)

1-2 bunches arugula (depending on size), thick stems removed
1-2 fennel bulbs (depending on size), very thinly sliced
1/4 cup (60 ml) extra-virgin olive oil
3 Tbs (45 ml) lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Shavings of Parmesan cheese for garnish

Combine the arugula and fennel in a salad bowl. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and toss with the greens. Garnish with shavings of Parmesan. Serves 4 to 6.
