Guatemalan Rice & Beans

Guatemalan Rice & Beans

One of my very favorite meals on my site is Guatemalan Chicken in Coconut Milk, Pollo en Leche de Coco. It’s the perfect thing for a cold, winter day – fast and easy and flavor for days! In the past, I’ve served the dish with rice cooked in coconut milk instead of how I first had it, with Guatemalan Rice & Beans.

White Chicken Chili Slow Cooker – Instant Pot – Stovetop

It’s been pretty bitter in the Twin Cities, but we’re having a little heatwave and are up to 12 degrees. Which would be great if we didn’t get about 7 inches of snow last night and even better if the high tomorrow wasn’t expected to be -5 with a low of -25 and worse on Wednesday. But that’s exactly the time you want soup! And even better a pretty much pantry soup (if your pantry is anything like mine) and not just any soup. You want this little White Chicken Chili Slow Cooker – Instant Pot – Stovetop number coz it’s going to warm you from the inside out!

Canned Refried Beans Restaurant Style

Refried beans are so often misunderstood – unless you’ve had great ones, preferably made homemade from dried pintos, OG style. Face it, though, we don’t all have the time to make a from scratch version, heck sometimes we don’t have much more time than it takes to heat up a can of refried beans as a quick side for just about anything Mexican or Southwestern. Here’s my “top-secret method” to take any old can of refried beans and doctor it up into creamy goodness: Canned Refried Beans Restaurant Style. And it takes just minutes.
