INGREDIENTS
TOMATO SAUCE
3 cups cherry tomatoes
2 (4-ounce) cans diced green chilies
1 medium white onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons flax seeds, if desired
juice of 1 lime
¼ cup fresh cilantro

CHILE RELLENO
8 medium sized poblano peppers
olive oil cooking spray
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Ground Turkey
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon cayenne
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
1 cup low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup gluten free breadcrumbs
½ cup fresh cilantro, for garnish

DIRECTIONS
1 – Tomato Sauce
2 – In a food processor, combine cherry tomatoes, green chilies, onion, red pepper, garlic cloves, flaxseed, if desired, lime juice and cilantro. Blend mixture until a chunky sauce forms.
3 – POBLANO PEPPERS
4 – Move top shelf to under the broiler. Heat oven to broil. Line baking sheet with foil. Place poblano peppers on baking sheet. Cook under high heat until peppers are blackened. Watch carefully. Once one side is burned, turn it over so other side can cook. All side of pepper should be evenly blackened. Place in large bowl and cover bowl tightly with plastic. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F.
5 – TURKEY SPINACH FILLING
6 – In large Dutch oven or heavy bottomed deep skillet on medium heat, add extra virgin olive oil and ground turkey, breaking it apart with wooden spoon. Add oregano, pepper, garlic powder, cumin, kosher salt and cayenne. Continue to break apart turkey so it is evenly coated with spices. Cook turkey to well-done 14 to 16 minutes or until 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Add spinach to turkey mixture. Stir well. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Add 1 cup tomato sauce to the mixture. Set aside.
7 – STUFF PEPPERS
8 – Spray 9 x 13-inch baking dish with olive oil spray.Carefully peel skins off the reserved poblanos. It is ok if a little of the charred skin remains, as it will add flavor, but try to get as much skin off as possible. Carefully slice the tops off the peppers and remove seeds. Be delicate in this process so as to ensure that you can keep the shape of the chile intact.Carefully stuff each pepper with a few spoonfuls of turkey and tomato sauce mixture. Lay stuffed peppers side-by-side in baking dish.
9 – BAKE PEPPERS
10 – Spoon remaining tomato sauce evenly over peppers and sprinkle top with mozzarella cheese. Spray a large piece of foil with olive oil spray and cover baking dish tightly. Bake peppers 20 minutes. Remove foil and top peppers with breadcrumbs. Leave chiles uncovered and bake 5 minutes or until top is browned. Serve with fresh cilantro, if desired.
* Always cook to an internal temperature of 165°F.

It’s Chili, Soup, or Stew Saturday….PRAIRIE HARVEST GREEN CHILI STEW

November 10, 2018 at 6:02 AM | Posted in It's Chili Soups or Stews Saturday, Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Chili, Soup, or Stew Saturday recipe is – PRAIRIE HARVEST GREEN CHILI STEW. This one is from the Wild Idea Buffalo website (https://wildideabuffalo.com/). Just one of many delicious and healthy recipes. To make the Stew you’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Stew Meat along with Roasted Green Chilies and your choice of cubed Pheasant, Grouse, or Chicken Breast. Again you can find this recipe or purchase the Buffalo Stew Meat all at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018!

PRAIRIE HARVEST GREEN CHILI STEW
The flavors of the prairie enhanced with roasted green chilies of the Southwest make for a great pot of stew. Roasted chilies are one of the best smells on the planet, so when available, I like to roast my own in the fall. If you have access to fresh and would like to roast your own, increase your green chili weight to about 4.5 pounds, and about 1.5 pounds for the red peppers. Roast chilies and peppers over a hot grill until blistered. Place in paper bag and allow to cool. Remove skin, scrape insides clean, and follow recipe below. (Makes 8 hearty entree portions, as seconds will be requested.)

Ingredients:
2 – pounds Stew Meat
1 – pound pheasant, grouse or chicken breast, cut into cubes
2 – tablespoons butter
2 – tablespoons olive oil
1 – onion, diced
2 – tablespoons garlic, chopped
2 – tablespoons cumin
2 – tablespoons chili powder
2 – tablespoons coriander
1 – teaspoon cayenne
2 – teaspoons salt
1 – tablespoon black pepper
3 – pounds *Hatch frozen or canned, roasted & peeled green chilies, diced or flash processed
1 – 15.5 ounce jar roasted red bell peppers, diced or flash processed
2 – quarts organic chicken or vegetable stock
¼ – cup arrow root
or corn starch
½ – cup water
2 – 10 ounce cans Rotel diced tomatoes, with lime juice and cilantro
1/3 – cup cilantro chopped
garnish options – sour cream and additional cilantro

Preparation:
1) Rinse stew meat in colander and pat dry with a paper towel.
2) In heavy stew pot, over medium high heat, heat butter and oil.
3) Add buffalo, fowl, onions and seasonings, stirring occasionally until meat is browned & onions are tender.
4) Add roasted green chilies and peppers to stew pot and stir to incorporate.
5) Add stock and bring to a boil.
6) Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for half an hour or until meat is tender.
7) Uncover and continue to simmer for an additional half hour.
8) Mix arrowroot and water together. Increase heat and bring to a boil, slowly whisking in arrowroot mixture.
9) Stir in diced tomatoes and cilantro.
10) Ladle stew in bowls and garnish as desired. Serve with grilled cheese Quesadillas.

*Hatch Green Chilies, are the best, so if available choose those. If using canned or frozen Hatch chilies, I use about 2.5 pounds of the mild chilies and a half pound of the hot. This gives the stew just the right amount of spiciness for our palate, adjust to your own.

“Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week – Quinoa and Chile Casserole

August 13, 2018 at 5:01 AM | Posted in CooksRecipes, Meatless Monday | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is – Quinoa and Chile Casserole. Featuring one of my favorite Grains that I use from time to time, Quinoa. The recipe comes from the CooksRecipes website which has a huge selection of recipes to please all tastes, diets, and cuisines so check it out today. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

Quinoa and Chile Casserole
Although quinoa (keen-wah) is new to the American market, it was a staple of the ancient peoples of Peru, who called it ‘the mother grain’. Hailed as the ‘super-grain of the future’, quinoa contains more protein than any other grain, and is considered a complete protein because it contains all eight essential amino acids. Quinoa can be used in much the same way as rice is used.

Recipe Ingredients:
2/3 cup pine nuts
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil – divided use
1 cup quinoa*
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped oven-dried tomatoes (or sun-dried)
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 to 3 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
2 (4-ounce) cans whole green chiles
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Cooking Directions:
1 – Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large (4 to 5-quart) saucepan over medium heat; add pine nuts and stir until lightly toasted. Remove from pan and set aside.
2 – Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil into same pan and add the quinoa. Stir constantly over medium-high heat until quinoa gives off a toasted aroma, about 3 minutes.
3 – Add tomatoes and broth and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until quinoa is tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in pine nuts, green onions and cilantro. Season with vinegar, salt and pepper. Cover and let stand.
4 – Drain chiles and split in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Arrange half the chiles in a 2-quart casserole (12x8x2-inch). Spread quinoa mixture evenly over chiles. Top with remaining chiles and sprinkle with the cheese.
5 – Bake in a 375°F (190°C) oven for 20 minutes or until hot and cheese has melted.

Makes 6 servings.
