Leftovers (EXACT RECIPES COMING SOON! Check Back.): I’m debating on blending Chili to smooth (That’s Optional). Using the other 1/2 pkg. of Bacon Ends, I may cook it with Pinto Beans and make Smoothered Burritos: Blend Chili, mix with Cheese, top over Bean Burritos.

tayschimisauce.jpg

Tay’s Chimi Sauce
(Chimichurri- USE THIS!):

1T EVOO
6T Mayo
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1T White Wine Vinegar
2T Balsamic Vinegar
2T Dried Cilantro
1tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1/4tsp Cumin
1/4tsp Pepper
1tsp Dried Oregano
A lil shy 1/4tsp Sea Salt

Buns/Wraps of Choice (Also, AMAZING on Softshells the next day!)
Shredded Moz. Cheese
Toppings: Onions, sliced thin. Fresh Tomatoes or Pico (I used fresh tom.)

Evenly coat Chops with Marinade and Marinade about 5 hours. Mix Tay’s Chimi Sauce Ingredients, set in fridge til use.
BEST on Charcoal Grill (Tastes amazing if done right. If it tastes like Smoke… You are NOT doing it right!). Or cook in skillet… Just cook the Meat! 
Once cooked, allow to set a minute, covered. Thin Slice cooked Meat. Lay flat and top with Shredded Cheese and melt. Add to Buns/Wraps with Toppings of choice.
(Some topped with A LITTLE Ketchup on one Bun Slice, then Chimi Sauce on Other Bun Slice. Fresh Tomato Sliced. Red Onion Slices. Some liked it with no Ketchup, just Chimi Sauce).
 – Also, an Optional Topping: Dried Oregano seasoned Mushrooms sauteed w/ Butter Spray or Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I skipped.
LEFTOVERS?  Melt Cheese over Meat (I used PepperJack). Top Meat with Sunny Side Up Eggs. Serve with Toast and a lil Salsa on side! (I skipped Chimi Sauce).


Skillet Tip: Lightly Oil or Spray pan. Get to a nice heat, to a SIZZLE. Sear Pork on each side about 3-4 minutes, or til done. Allow to set a few minutes.
Charcoal Grilling Tip: We build a hill in center of grill. Light charcoal (We use Regular Charcoal for above recipe). Once coals are ashy grey, they are ready. Place on food, on outside of hill of charcoal. Prop Grill Open, using a Slightly crushed pop can. Chicken tip: Lay Chicken on outer part of grill (Outside hill). Once Chicken isn’t sticking to grate, so much, it’s ready to flip. Flip once, that’s it. Cook til Thermometer reads correct temp.
AVOID TOO MANY FLIPS. Allow meats to sizzle once it hits grill. Seal that side, flip. Seal other side. Locks in Moisture! Also, Meat cooks as it sits!

tayschickrubseason

Season over makes, for few uses! Try over Fries. Potato Skins. Chicken. Etc. Great for indoor cooking or Grilling!

Rub/Season:
1T Chili Powder
1tsp Brown Sugar (Optional. Depending on use.)
1/4tsp Sea Salt
1/2tsp Black Pepper
1/2tsp Mustard Powder
1/2tsp Cumin
1tsp Garlic Powder
1tsp Onion Powder
1tsp Paprika
1/8tsp Cayenne
1/2tsp Fresh Lemon Peel
1 Chicken Broth Cube, crushed to powder*
1/8tsp Celery Seed

White Vinegar (Depending on how cooking)

Flour (Depending on how cooking)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Depending on how cooking)

Use Rub any way you’d like. For this particular recipe, I BAKED Chicken Legs. So, I:
REMOVED SKIN FROM LEGS (Easier to do when Partial Frozen!).
I Marinaded in Ziploc Bag: 6 Legs + 1/2T White Vinegar + 1-2T Chicken Rub (I skipped Brown Sugar for this particular recipe). Marinade 20min.
Add 1/2T Olive Oil to bag, toss around. Sprinkle in half of 1/2T Flour in the bag, toss. Add other half, toss. Set in fridge for about 20 minutes.
Butter Flavor Cooking Spray baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at about 425-450 for 18minutes, flip, bake another 12-18minutes, or til juices run clear.
I tossed cooked Chicken with Tay’s Sweet Honey BBQ Sauce (Recipe below)!

If Grilling: Marinade 1hr. in Ziploc Bag: 6 Legs + 1/2T White Vinegar + 1-2T Chicken Rub. Grill. Eat alone, or, Optional, to toss with Sauce (BBQ, Buffalo, etc.)
Also, try the Rub Recipe for Tay’s Loaded Taters!

NOTES: Brown Sugar: If I’m doing a BBQ Chicken, or Sauce Toss, I skip Brown Sugar. Usually only use if just doing Season with Oil/Butter. Also, USE the crushed Chicken Broth Cube. Lots of famous seasons contain Meat Flavoring/etc. It’s GREAT!

Heat Oil. Break off large piece. I had to improvise with a metal measuring cup. I dipped into oil to oil it (Helps with sticking) spread dough around it. Using tongs, deep fry to shape into a bowl form. Brown both side. Lay onto paper towels. Sprinkle with Garlic Powder.
Top bowls with Refried Beans, Taco Meat, Tay’s Guaca-HOLY MOLY! Sauce, Salsa, Shredded Cheese, Shredded Lettuce. Eat!

HEALTHIER OPTION: Don’t Fry Dough. Season and Bake around Muffin Pan creating bowls, sprinkle cooked Bowls with Garlic Powder.

1c + 3/4c All Purpose Flour
1 pkg. ACTIVE Yeast
1/2tsp Sugar
a smidge shy of 1tsp Salt
1tsp Dried Thyme, crushed some
1/2tsp Cumin
3/4c Warm Water
1tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

In a bowl, add Flour, Yeast, Sugar, Salt, Thyme, and Cumin. With a hand blender, I blended some.
I microwaved Water to a nice warmth. Slowly pour in Water. Knead with PALM (Fold dough, press, fold, press, etc.) to a nice smoothness.
risingdough

RISING TECHNIQUE! My house is not warm enough (Warmth aides in rising), so:
IN A SEPARATE bowl, I add an inch or 2 of Microwaved Hot (Not too HOT!) Water, I take ANOTHER BOWL and LIGHTLY brush with Olive Oil. Set the Dough into the bowl brushed with Olive Oil. SET THAT BOWL on top of the microwaved water bowl (This keeps the dough warm, rises PERFECTLY!). Cover with a Dampened Paper Towel or Rag (I dampen with warm water).
Allow to rise 1 hour. Some people press it smaller after rising, I don’t I just:
Cut off what’s needed, stretch or quick roll to size.
I Butter Flavor Cooking Spray a pan, Bake at 425 for about 10-13 minutes (Pizzas, Flat Tacos, Buns).
You can also cook in a skillet. Once it bubbles nicely, flip (Be sure it doesn’t burn)(Flatbreads, Pita types).
Great for Pizza Crust (We bake in Oven). Flatbreads (We cook on skillet). Burger Buns (We bake). Also, great for dipping in Hummus… Etc.

NOTES: We were going to add in Oregano. But, with having toppings that already contained Oregano, we skipped. Up to you. We would have done 1/2 – 1tsp.

Tay’s Sweet N Spicy Salsa (Jalapeno!)

sweetnspicysalsa1
This Salsa is AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS! Tacos, Chips, Right Out of the Jar… Doesn’t matter. This is your PERFECT FIT for every Salsa need!

4c Tomatoes *See notes
3c Jalapeno, deseeded/gutted
1c Onions
1-1.5c Bell Pepper ( I use 1/2c Grn + 1c Sweet Mini Bells)
4 LARGE Garlic Cloves, minced
1c Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 of 6oz. can Tomato Paste
2tsp Pickling Salt
3-4T White Sugar (I used 3T!)
2tsp dried Oregano
2tsp dried Cilantro
1/2tsp Cumin
1.5T Paprika
1T Coriander

Optional: Per jar, 1/2 Cayenne (Deseeded) OR 1/4tsp Jalapeno Seeds

Makes 3 jars.
Either, Bring above ingredients to a boil. Then, simmer 30 minutes, covering first 5-10min. Then, uncovered rest of way. Serve for Parties… Or:
Tay’s prep:

Bring water to boil. Boil whole Tomatoes for about 30seconds. Remove and place, immediately, into COLD COLD water. Skin should just come right off.
Chop up tomatoes. I cut onto plate, lifted tomatoes with fingers, then place into salsa cooking pot… Ridding of excess tomato juices.
Bring above ingredients to a boil. Then, simmer 30 minutes, covering first 5 -10min. Then, uncovered rest of way.
In clean jars (Wash and boil jars/lids/seals, set on paper towel. DRY all completely), fill to about an inch below top of jars. Place on seal, then twist on rings. Not too, too tight. Just firm enough.
Bring water bath to boil. Boil in water bath for 12-14minutes. Shut off heat, and leave for about 5min. Place on paper towels for a minute or 2, checking they are twisted snug, not tight, but snug (Careful, it’s hot!). Then, turn upside down and keep them upside down til cool. (Upside down tip was given to me by a Farmer at Fleet Farm. Says it ensured his sealing, Update… Since this method, it’s been 100% sealing thus far!).

*Notes: I used a variety of types of tomatoes from the garden. Even a few
Yellow Tomatoes! You can lessen sweetness by lessening to 3T of Sugar. TO UP HEAT… Add a half of Cayenne Pepper,  halfed long way. OR, Jalapeno Seeds (I do 1/4tsp Seeds per jar). Just add either to jar prior to pouring cooked salsa in.

My husband likes his extra spicy. Cuts sugar to 2.5T. Adds to each jar: Sliver of Ghost Pepper and adds 1/4tsp Jalapeno Seed and 1/4tsp, or so, of Red Pepper Flakes.

1/2tsp Garlic Powder
1tsp Dijon Mustard
1T + 2tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1T Dried Parsley
2.5tsp McCormick’s Greek Seasoning
1tsp Dried Oregano
1tsp Dried Rosemary

Mix, WELL, marinade ingredients. Brush ALL onto thawed Chicken Breasts (I did 3 chicken breasts). Marinade 5 hours.

Tastes great cooked on grill. tTt’s Charbroil Charcoal Grill Cooking Tip: Make a Mountain Shape with Plain Ol’ charcoal. (You do a Mountain, with center highest, to control cooking. If too hot, move away from center.) Use lighter fluid to start. Once coals are nicely started, place chicken on, around outside of grill. Place a half smashed pop can sideways onto grill rim, to prop a little open. Cook til chicken is easy to slide a spatula underneath (It doesn’t stick much, when ready to flip). Flip once. Cook other side. tTt calls it, “The one and done”. Once done, take off. Cover til eating.
WE SERVED OURS OVER A NICE SALAD: Lettuce, boiled eggs, red onions, cheese cubes, roma tomatoes, croutons, and ranch. With side of tTt’s Spuddy Buddies (Seasoned Baked Red Potatoes).

lazylasanga

Red Meat Sauce*:
1-2 jars Favorite Spaghetti Sauce (I used 1.5 jars Rinaldi)
1 lb. Lean Ground Beef (Or Turkey), browned & seasoned with:
–Garlic powder, pepper, onion powder, basil, oregano, parsley

Vegis (1/2Green Pepper, 1/2Red Pepper, Onion) *Optional

White Cheese Spread:
1c Cottage Cheese (At least 2%- I did 4%)
1/3c Grated Parmesan Cheese (Store shelf kind)
1/8c Sour Cream
1/16tsp Sea Salt
1c Spinach. chopped small

Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Frozen Cheese Ravioli (I used 1lb)

(Pictured Steps Below)
Premake White Cheese Spread, place in fridge (Trust me… DON’T skip the white spread or it’s ingredients!). Brown meat. Butter Flavor Cooking Spray Crock. Add all Red Meat Sauce ingredients to crock, cook on low 2 hours*. (If using vegis, cook til soft.) Stirring occasionally. Add in ravioli to desired sauce to noodle consistency you like*, stir. Sprinkle LIGHTLY with A LITTLE moz. cheese. Top with white cheese spread. Layer with more moz. cheese. Cook on low another hour or two. If you have an oven safe crock bowl, you can choose to remove lid and broil til cheese is lightly browned. I skip that, it is a lazy dish! Serve.
I make in crock to slowly blend all flavors. You can easily cook this on the stove top/ in oven, for less time!

*Notes: Try tTt’s Spaghetti Sauce in place of Red Meat Sauce, recipe coming soon! Freezer friendly. If you use premade sauce, you can cut the cooking time drastically. Only heating til all’s warmed. ALSO, the ravioli will eat up some sauce, so when you get to the sauce consistency you like, add a little more!!!
