I thawed a boneless, stuffed chicken and dithered around looking for a side when I noticed a few cups of black beans I had frozen. I added some yellow corn and a handful of chopped sweet peppers to the thawed beans and topped those with shredded cheeses and popped the dish into the oven with the chicken as it finished cooking. It seemed to work pretty well. The chicken came in a roasting bag but that just didn’t work out – the skin burnt and stuck to the bag. I destroyed the chicken trying to get it out. It did still taste good. This chicken was stuffed with a crayfish rice mixture, I cooked some additional yellow rice to go with it.That’s my favorite hot sauce on the chicken. It just felt right putting it on there.
Whenever we have tacos I always end up with more parts and pieces than we can deal with at one sitting. These enchiladas use up much of what is left – the beans and beef, and the rice. We finished the guacamole, it just doesn’t keep well. Still plenty of beans and rice and beef for more fillings, I had breakfast burritos this morning but didn’t bother to take pains with the plating so no pictures. Sigh, still plenty left. I think the puppies will get an unscheduled amendment to their dinner menu today.
