CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP

CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP

A festive soup loaded with flavor and texture, it’s savory, colorful and fresh – sure to knock your socks and sombrero right off.

The base for chicken tortilla soup is a mixture of peppers, onions, garlic, chicken stock, enchilada sauce and Mexican seasonings. Hominy, tomatoes and chicken are added, and it’s all topped with cheese, onions, cilantro, lime and fresh fried tortilla strips. Avocados and jalapeños would go great as well. And, for a creamier soup, stir in a dollop of sour cream.

SLAMMIN’ SALMON OLYMPIA

SLAMMIN’ SALMON OLYMPIA

This is my most requested recipe. “Olympia” style is a layered dish. Usually with onions on the bottom (I prefer mine with spinach), then fish, next is a creamy layer of equal parts mayo and sour cream, then it’s topped off with a crispy element (bread crumbs, panko, or Ritz). Growing up, this dish was a staple at our family gatherings. It’s traditionally made with halibut, but really, any fish will do.

Yuzukosho & Chicken Peperoncino

A light flavored dish full of umami; but with a a little sour & spicy aroma from Yuzukosho. The sweetness from the cherry tomatos balances out the heat and flavor. This recipe is an arrangement from my grandma’s favorite dish, yuzukosho chicken.

Navajo Nation Burger & Corn Egg Salad Topping with Corn Fritter Fries

I wanted to think outside of the box, plus pay tribute to my husband and my native american heritage. The bread is a Navajo Fry Bread, the burger is Pemmican meat patties, for the topping I made my own spin of a corn egg salad and for the fries I made corn fritter fries. Hope you all enjoy as much as my family did.

A tart and moist lemon cake with a tangy cream cheese frosting. I wrote this recipe because all the lemon cake recipes I found online didn’t have enough lemon flavor for me.
