Now, the recipe calls for grilling, but since it’s still winter (barely… hurry up spring!) I did not want to grill. So stovetop skillet it is! The chicken may not have been as “blackened” as it should be, but it was deliciously cooked and perfectly timed to seal all the juices and tastes inside. I’ll definitely be making this recipe again. Thumbs way up!
Not as great as the ones that you can get over at Mimi’s Cafe in Chesterfield, MO. Be sure to check them out one day if you’re in the St. Louis area!
I won’t be making this one again, and I’ll stick to my scrambled eggs in the morning (if I’m cooking them that is!).

one. But from what everyone told me they were good but not amazing. The recipe itself gets a thumbs up because it was really easy to put together - except for the fact that the peppers I purchased were HUGE and I had to use an entire piece of bacon (along with TWO toothpicks) instead of half like the recipe called for. This also could be a reason why the bacon wasn't fully cooked after the 30 minutes. I'll give this recipe a thumbs to the side.

chicken. This will probably be the only time I'm not going to follow the recipe because I'm not too sure how I feel about the outcome. I'm sure it would have been a lot better had I done what the recipe stated. Lesson learned.
The recipe is no long available online - so here it goes:
1 can 14oz diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tsp salt (divided)
1/2 tsp dried Mexican oregano
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 pepper (divided)
1 broiler/fryer chicken, (3-4 lbs) cut up
3 tbsp canola oil (divided)
1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain rice
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup frozen peas

simmer for the amount of time the recipe calls for (maybe a little longer since I was stuck on the phone working late on a Friday night). I baked the tortillas just as the recipe said to, but it didn't work out so well. I either didn't bake them long enough or the tortillas I bought weren't that great. Either way, they weren't completed hard but not soft either. So I opted for oyster crackers instead, yum! This soup is also really good with some cheese mixed in, but what isn't right? I'll give this recipe a thumbs up. It was delicious and I would definitely make it again!
