What's REALLY cooking?
  Spicy gunsauce special
I took the Mexicali Skillet and revised it a bit, but it turned out different enough that it deserved a new name. After a few names involving Star Wars and various Disney princesses, we stumbled upon this name. My son said it was spicy enough to deserve the name gunsauce. We liked this much better than the mexicali skillet. This is an easy one-dish meal when you're in the mood for something hearty and tex-mex. I used a lot of seasoning, so be careful not to make it too bland. Other than the diced tomatoes, this dish relies on the seasoning to make it interesting and flavorful.

1 lb chicken breast, cut into small pieces
1 15 oz. can of corn
1 15 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes
1.5 cups white rice
2.5 C water
2 t minced garlic
1/2 chopped onion
3 T oil
1 small can of olives
chili powder
shredded cheese (optional)

Heat oil, then grill chopped onion & garlic seasoned with salt, pepper, & chili powder.

Add chicken, season with salt, pepper, and chili powder, and brown it.

Add remaining ingredients, seasoning to taste with salt, pepper, chili powder, and oregano. Bring to boil, them simmer covered on medium-low heat until most liquid is absorbed. Lower heat and simmer lightly until rice is fully done.

Garnish with shredded cheese (optional).

Our children are allergic to nuts, eggs, milk, soy, peas, lentils, strawberries, sesame, kiwis, cherries, and chick peas. After cooking the same few dinners over and over, we got fed up and needed a change. I’ve decided to really learn to cook, and to share what I learn here. As I find recipes and adapt them to our allergy situation, I’ll share what works (and what doesn’t). If you have food allergic children and need ideas for new things to feed them, or just want some simple new recipes to try, I think you’ll find some here.

Please remember to check all product ingredient listings carefully when avoiding allergens.
