Hey, Happy St. Patricks Day! I know today's recipe should be "Irish Stew"...sorry Dad :-) but it's a take-off from my Bean Soup from yesterday. Great recipe when entertaining a crowd. The "Pistachio Fruit Salad" is a great recipe for an "Irish dessert".
"May the LOVE of the Irish fill your heart Today, Tomorrow and Always".
Ingredients: 4 leg quarters (cooked/shredded)
Tortilla strips or chips
Queso Fresco or shredded Mozzerella Cheese
Prepare "bean soup recipe". Add cooked/shredded chicken. Simmer 2-3 hours adding chicken stock as needed. Season to taste with Cilantro. Serve in bowls with sliced avacado and garnish with queso fresco or shredded mozzerella cheese. Serve with tortilla strips or chips. I serve tortilla strips on the side to prevent them from getting "soggy" in soup. Also makes a great presentation when serving guests.
Tip: I purchased a pkg. of 6 leg quarters for $3.80 (family pack). Used 4 in tortilla soup and saved money using broth from chicken in soup. Plus...cooked another meal BBQ'g the other two. Now that's a savings!!!
Speaking of Savings...we are three months into the year...how's the "Coupon Project" going? Start a "Swap" at work or with friends. Remember...you'll be giving yourself a raise by the end of the year and have money for that family vacation. Good luck!
