Spicy tomato and rice soup

This is a combination of all the things I like.

Well some of the things since I like everything.

One chopped onion

Two cloves of chopped garlic

Two tablespoons butter

2 cans of Campbell’s tomato soup

2 cans of of water from the soup can

One can of rinsed black beans

One can of drained corn

Two cups of cooked brown rice

4 teaspoons of curry powder

One teaspoon fresh black pepper

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Salt to taste but be careful because the condensed soup is very salty

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Melt the butter

Add the onion, garlic and red pepper flakes

Cook till soft about five minutes

Add the soup , water, beans, corn, rice, curry and pepper.

Cook till everything is heated.

Make sure you stir the bottom of the pot or else it will stick.

Add the cilantro

Serve as a side dish or a thick soup

It is spicy but not overly hot.

I like to serve it with some cheddar cheese and sour cream.

Nacho chips are also pretty good.

This takes all of twenty minutes from stove to table.

Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

On November 9,  I gave you the recipe for Buffalo Chicken but today I am giving you the sandwich.

Start drooling.

This is so easy and you can even buy some pre made chicken and make a ton of these for you next party.

One package of dinner size potato rolls

One container of cheddar-blue cheese spread


thin sliced raw onion


blue cheese dressing

ranch dressing

beau monde sauce

Yogurt dill sauce

Dill pickle slices

pea shoots

slices of red pepper

Cook the chicken

Lay out the rolls

Spread one side with the blue cheese spread

Add the hot chicken so the cheese melts and gets really soft

Add the onion

Add the arugula

Add the pickle and a couple of pea sprouts

Now pick which dressing you like and add it to the other side of the roll.

Serve with the sliced red peppers on the side instead of chips.

Believe me the tray of sandwiches will disappear.
