>I woke up to this face this morning.
Could you see me taking this boy to the gym? I think not, so I’m going to have a great run on our treadmill at home.
This soup is another pantry cleaner, I’m getting closer and closer to starting over fresh! The rest of this week and next week and Dekalb Farmer’s Market here I come!
Chicken Fajita Chili:
12 cloves of garlic
2 chicken breasts poached and shredded
1 10 oz bag frozen diced onions (or one large onion diced)
1 green bell pepper
2 tbsp canned diced serranos
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 cup cranberry grape juice
4 cups of reserved chicken broth (you’ll get this when cooking chicken)
2 cans of diced tomatoes
1 can of diced tomatoes and green chiles
2 cans of dark red kidney beans
1 10 oz bag frozen corn
Spices: feel free to use just plain chili powder if you don’t have all of these
2 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp coriander
1tbsp sea salt
1 tbsp black pepper
2 tbsp annato chile powder
1 tsp ground mustard
1 tsp celery seed
2. Reserve four cups of the liquid (try to not get the big spices in reserved liquid)
12 cloves of garlic separated (I keep mine in the casing, so they don’t burn)
1tsp olive oil
1. Oven at 250
2. Put garlic and olive oil on a baking sheet
3. Bake 45 min until brown NOT black
( I do huge batches of this and either refrigerate or freeze.)
1. Put onion, bell pepper, and serrano in pot with some oil and soften
2. Add spices and flour, let it cook about a minute until the spices smell fragant
3. Add wine, and grape juice, make sure everything combines, this is so you don’t get lumps
4. Add chicken broth bring to boil
5. Put all canned tomatoes in a food processor, mush all garlic out of casings into processor as well, and blend it all up ( I love grinding up food, it’s just fun)
6. Add to soup with shredded chicken and let cook about 45 minutes.
7. Add beans and corn and let cook about 15 minutes until corn is hot
8. I served mine with Aunt Jemima cornbread ( I do not recommend, it was not very good) but any other kind of cornbread would be great.
