I created this recipe to taste like my favorite Mexican restaurant that I went to when I was a child - Casa Hernandez. Jalapeno, cilantro, onion, salt, and garlic can be adjusted to taste. Chili powder may give this a nice touch, also. It just depends on your taste. This is a no-cook recipe. I am unsure of the amount of servings this makes.
I had to have this recipe after eating this at my uncle's birthday party on the 4th of July. It is really good! I was not sure of the size of the package of Ramen noodles, so I estimated. It is the standard small rectangle package.
I came up with this myself. Since brussels sprouts have a similar flavor to cabbage, I have adapted my cabbage recipe for them. My husband thought he did not like brussels sprouts until I made these. I usually have to do a double batch and we end up fighting over the leftovers!!!
I grew up eating this cobbler, which is more cake-like. This recipe came from Mrs. Roach, who was like a grandmother to me. I remember picking dewberries and eating more than I picked. My fingers were always purple and I got my share of thorns, too.
I am posting this for safe keeping. I made it up one night and it was really good. The amount of ingredients is for 1 chicken breast. All ingredients can be adjusted to taste. The garlic and cilantro cubes are found in the grocery store with the bullion. I used Knorr.
I got the original recipe when I worked at Lowell Farms, an organic rice company. I originally used their organic jasmine rice in this recipe. It is very good and has a distinct tast much different than regular white rice. It gives the dish a lot of flavor. It is hard for me to find unless I go back to my hometown. I added chicken to the recipe to make it a main dish. I have not made this in a long time and just recently found my recipe again. I am posting for safe keeping. http://www.lowellfarms.com
Here is my secret recipe! I was in a hurry to make beans one day and discovered if you rinse the canned pinto beans in hot water and add to the other ingredients, it did not taste much different that the old fashioned soaking method. This is also the non-alcoholic version of borracho beans. I am sure that you can sub a beer for some of the water and it would taste good too. All amounts are a guestimation.
My cousin gave me this recipe a couple of years ago when I was getting married. I am not sure where she got it from. It is sooooo moist and delicious! No need to make an icing or glaze, sugar coating makes it just sweet enough. Yum! My husband loves this cake. He eats a quarter of it at a time!!!
My aunt always made this squash casserole. She usually used eggplant and zucchini or whatever my uncle picked fresh out of the garden. You can use any combination of zucchini, yellow squash, and eggplant.
