The fun experience of using new cookbooks

I enjoy using new cookbooks. Whenever I buy a new one, I get full of excitement that I have a real hard time containing lol. Ha, it gets even more challenging when I hear certain cookbooks screaming out my name lol, while I’m shopping at my favorite bookstore Barnes & Noble or on Amazon.

Moreover, yesterday I had a blast using my new crockpot cookbook that I bought last week and made this Layered Mexican-Style Casserole. I at first was a little uncertain of how it was going turn out because I saw it was meatless, but to my astonishment, it actually tasted delicious. I am not kidding either this Mexican-Style Casserole was the Bomb.com. I for sure will give this meatless dish a 10-star rating.

Crockpot Layered Mexican-Style Casserole

Ingredients

1-2 cans (approximately 15 oz) Goya hominy

One can (15 oz) Goya black beans

One can (14 oz) diced tomatoes with garlic, basil, and oregano

1 C thick and chunky salsa, Mild or Medium

1 can (6 oz) tomato paste

1/2 tsp ground cumin

3-6 flour tortillas

2 C shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

1/2 C sliced black olives

Directions

1. Prepare foil handles (See Note). Coat inside of your crockpot with non-stick cooking spray. Combine hominy, beans, tomatoes, salsa, tomato paste, cumin in a large bowl; stir to blend. Press one tortilla into the bottom of your crockpot. Top one-third of hominy mixture and one-third of the cheese. Repeat layers

2. Press remaining tortilla on top. Top with remaining hominy mixture. Set aside remaining one-third of the cheese. Cover; cook on LOW for six to eight hours or on HIGH for two to three hours. Turn off the heat sprinkle with remaining cheese and olives. Cover; let stand for five minutes. Pull out tortilla stack with all oil handles cut into six wedges.

*Note: to make foil handles tear off six 18 x 2″ pieces of heavy duty foil or use regular foil. Get two strips and put one on top of the other, fold both ends together. Crisscross foil strips in spoke design and place in crockpot to make lifting of tortilla stack easier.*

Cheesy Chicken

 

Last night, I had the pleasure of cooking for my Grandma again, and I made for her this delicious and cheesy stuffed chicken parmesan. I do admit though that the preparation of this dish was little messy lol, but I still had a blast. 😀 One of the things I love about this recipe is that after the chicken is finished cooking, you have all this yummy melted cheese inside each chicken. Yum, yum! Haha! I love cheese!

Stuffed Chicken Parmesan

INGREDIENTS

Three or four chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1/8 tsp salt
1 C. mozzarella cheese
2 C. flour
6 eggs, beaten
2 C. Italian seasoning Progresso bread crumbs
1 C olive oil, for frying
3 C Hunt’s tomato sauce
½ C parmesan cheese
2 Tbsps basil

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking dish with foil, grease it with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Directions

1. Slice a hole into each chicken breast. Next, fill the pockets evenly with the mozzarella cheese. Press the ends of the chicken together to close the hole. Divide the flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs into three separate shallow bowls.

2. Being careful to keep the chicken from opening, dip the stuffed chicken in the flour, shaking off the extra. Dip the floured chicken into the egg, then into the breadcrumbs, coating it evenly. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Cook the chicken until golden brown on both sides.

3. Place ⅔ of the tomato sauce evenly on the bottom of a baking dish. Place the chicken on top. Top with the remaining of the tomato sauce, then sprinkle the parmesan and basil on top. Bake for twenty-thirty five minutes. Enjoy! 😀

Yesterday I went to my all-time favorite bookstore Barnes & Noble and bought two new cookbooks. Book one has crockpot recipes and book two has pressure cooker recipes. I cannot wait to begin sharing new recipes with you real soon.

Keep up the great work, I know you’ll be an excellent cook someday. 🙂
Thank you so very much for reading and have a great weekend!
