I marinated my chicken breast in lime juice and hot sauce, with Montreal Chicken seasonings. THe longer you marinate the deeper the taste. I used 2 breasts, 3 limes and about 1 tsp of hot sauce. To cook I put a small amount of olive oil in cast iron got it really hot, browned one side of breast about 3 min. then turned it over and fininshed it in the oven at 375 for 20 min right in the same pan. Topped with some green onion.
Keep on Smilin......
I bought cubano peppers (big, and medium spicy), then hollowed them out and filled them with cooked ground turkey breast spiced mexican like I like it (cumin, cilantro, roasted chipotle chili powder) mixed with salsa. I put them in a little casserole dish, and topped them with enchilada sauce (it was surprising not bad carb or cal wise, used 1/4 cup). I baked this for about 1/2 hour, then topped it with an ounce of shredded chedder and baked again until melted..
Chile rellenos a la medifast..
Sometimes a girl just *HAS* to have Mexican!..
Lynn and Judy,,both these sound great,,I will try them soon!!..
You are not kidding Judy! It's definitely one of those days! Thanks to all of you!..
I guess we need OrangeBlood to figure out how to make a Medi-Rita!..
I felt like that yesterday, so I put a pork tenderloin in a crockpot with a can of Rotel and some coriander and cumin. All those other suggestions sound great, I'll have to try them. I think I could eat Mexican food every day...
Cilantro is a good flavoring to use too. It can be bought fresh...
Maybe try this? It was my 'desperation' Mexican adaptation.....
