A terrible picture taken by SX, who was in a hurry to eat. While we don’t have a tandoor oven and we didn’t want to trapeze down a few flights of stairs to grill, we opted to use our oven. Finishing the cooked chicken under a broiler helps to give that crisp and char character. Marinating in a mic of spices and yogurt brings flavor and juiciness to this dish. It is missing that characteristic red color, but you can achieve it by adding annatto or red food coloring.
Crockpot Turkey Chili
A great body-warming one pot meal for yet another snowy day. Man… This winter has been pretty tough, so anything that just warms up the body and and soul with minimal clean up is a definite winner in my book. Chili is also a great vehicle for picky eaters who try their best to avoid vegetables. It’s easy to add tons of vegetables as all vegetables are bite-sized. Shhh, don’t tell SX, but I managed to add in tons of onion, garlic, celery, green peppers, tomatoes, corn in mass quantities.
Top each bowl of goodness with parsley, shredded cheese, dollops of sour cream, drizzles of hot sauce, and/or sliced scallions to customize it to your delight. And, do not forget the cornbread!!
Melon Agua Fresca
A deliciously refreshing way to brighten up your day. A cup of this will transport you to warm and sunny days easily.
Just blend up 3 cups of melon, 1.5 cups of water, a squeeze of lime, and a touch sugar (if needed) to taste for a few cups of this goodness. You can strain it, but I feel that you miss out on the fruit pulp, which I personally like.
