Today’s Menu: Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w/ New Potatoes

 

Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w New Potatoes 014
For Breakfast I had an Egg Beater’s Egg White Scrambled Egg, 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, 2 slices of Toasted Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love a good Breakfast! After my morning workout it was house cleaning day. Ran the vacuum and dusted. Swept up and cleaned outside on the deck and driveway, getting a lot of leaves this year. After cleaning got the cart out for a while to enjoy another beautiful Fall Day, sunny and 70 degrees! Clouds and rain moving in though overnight and Saturday, much needed rain. For dinner tonight anew recipe, I prepare a Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w/ New Potatoes.

 

 

I had come across this recipe from a McCormick Recipe email and had been wanting to try for some time, like dinnerChili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w New Potatoes 001 tonight! To make this I’ll need the following; 1 package McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix, 1 tablespoon packed Splenda Brown Sugar, 1 large ripe Mango (peeled) – seeded and finely chopped (1 cup), 1/3 cup finely chopped Red Onion, 2 tablespoons Orange Juice, 1 tablespoon chopped Cilantro, 2 Pork Tenderloins (about 1 pound each), and 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The ingredients of one delicious Pork Tenderloin! I used Splenda Brown Sugar instead of the regular Brown Sugar and I also used the McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix instead of the Gluten-Free McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix (Kroger was out of stock of it). The original recipe and web link is at the end of the post.

 
To prepare the dish I mixed the Seasoning Mix and Sugar in small bowl. For the Mango Salsa, mixed the Mango, Onion, Orange Juice, Cilantro and 1 teaspoon of the Seasoning Mixture in medium bowl. Covered and refrigerated Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w New Potatoes 010until ready to serve.

I then brushed the Pork Tenderloins with Oil. Coated evenly with remaining seasoning mixture. Refrigerated for 1 hour, for extra flavor.

To prepare it preheat the oven to 375°. Add Pork to pan; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. I use this cooking method when I prepare my Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin and it always comes out perfect. The Tenderloin came moist and delicious! Love the McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix along with Brown Sugar, nice crust and perfect flavor. A definite “Keeper Recipe”.

 

Seasoned Haddock w Whole New Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tip 002
For a side I heated up a can of Del Monte Whole New Potatoes, just emptied the contents of the can into a sauce pan and heated on medium heat until heated through. I also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Fried Chicken Tenders w/ Multi – Grain Medley and Cut Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Tenders w/ Multi – Grain Medley and Cut Green Beans

 

 

 

Chicken Tenders Minute Grain Medley 007

I believe we have our Indian Summer going on here in west Chester. They say it’s usually after the first frost, most of our area had their first one Tuesday morning. Then about a day later the temps started climbing, a high of around 64 today. Then they’re calling possibly for record highs near 80 degrees for the next few days. So this might be our last blast of heat. Not much going on today, got some housework done and settled in for another afternoon of Football, NFL this time. For dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Tenders w/ Multi – Grain Medley and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 
I used Kroger Simple Truth Natural Chicken Tenders. I seasoned the Tenders with, McCormick Perfect Pinch Parmesan Herb Seasoning, Sea Salt, and Ground Black Pepper. Then I got some Low fat Buttermilk and poured a cup of it in a plastic container and mixed about 5 shakes of Frank’s Red Hot sauce into it, mixing well. I then added my Chicken Tenders to it, sealed it and set it in the fridge to marinate. When it came time to prepare them I removed them from the marinade, shaking off any excess of the Buttermilk mix. I laid them on a large dish that I had already added Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko to. Rolled the Tenders in the Panko until all sides were covered with Panko Crumbs. Let them sit a few minutes and I used a large skillet, I sprayed with Pam w/ Olive Oil Spray and added 2 tablespoons of Canola Oil to. Heated the skillet on medium heat. After Oil was heated I added my Tenders. I cooked them about 5 minutes per side until golden brown and 165 internal temperature. They came out delicious! The seasoning was spot on and the Buttermilk and Hot Sauce mixture gave it a fantastic taste. The Panko gave it a beautiful crust. As they say “Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner”.

 

 

 
For one side dish I tried a new one, Minute Multi-Grain Medley. I seen this advertised the other day and it looked and sounded great so I picked up a box of it at Walmart yesterday. It has Brown Rice, Thai red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! The box contains 4 – 2 Serving Packets and easy to prepare. Combine water and the contents of one bag in medium saucepan and stir. Add oil if desired. Or, if desired, to add more flavor, substitute broth, fruit or vegetable juice for water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 MINUTES or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat. Fluff with fork and serve! Esay to prepare and makes one excellent side dish. Another staple for side dishes. Plus it’s only 160 calories and 31 net carbs. Then I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
 

 

 

 

Minute Multi Grain Medley
Minute Multi-Grain Medley

 

* Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of four popular gluten-free 100% whole grains and is ready in only 10 minutes. The four grains include:
* Brown Rice – usually brown but can be black, purple, red or a variety of exotic hues.
* Thai Red Rice – also known as Khao Deng, is an ancient grain that has a pleasant and nutty flavor.
* Wild Rice – not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass. It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
* Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”) – is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds. It cooks up light and fluffy. The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
This quick cooking whole grain medley is pre-portioned in 4 separate bags for ease of preparation and has a slightly chewy, nutty flavor. Perfect for any meal, even as a wholesome start to the day, this medley is great when eaten with a little olive oil and salt, cooked in meat/vegetable broths or fruit juices. Make Minute® Multi-Grain Medley a versatile recipe staple for your pantry.

Directions
1 -Do NOT use the bag for cooking. COMBINE water and contents of one bag in medium saucepan and stir. Add oil if desired. Or, if desired, to add more flavor, substitute broth, fruit or vegetable juice for water.
2 – BRING to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 MINUTES or until water is absorbed.
3 – REMOVE from heat. Fluff with fork.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

 

 

Ended up with only a 3/4″ of new snow today, but it was about 30 degrees out before cooling back down. Not a thing going on today so it was me and the remote today! For dinner tonight, possibly my favorite dish, Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili w/ Johnny Cakes!

 

 

 

3bean-buffalo-chili-cornbread-003
I had a container of the Chili in the freezer so I sit in the fridge overnight to thaw. To warm it up I put in a small sauce pan and heated in on medium heat till it heated throughout. I absolutely love this Chili! When it was heated up and ready to eat I hit with a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and topped it with a sprinkle of fresh grated Dutch Gouda. A perfect dish anytime but especially hit’s the spot on a cold Winter’s Day!

 

 

 

It’s loaded with nothing bu good things. I use Wild Idea Buffalo’s Ground Buffalo which is the best tasting Ground Buffalo that I’ve found. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (15 oz.) Chili Beans, 1 Can (15 oz.) Kidney Beans (rinsed), and 1 Can (15 oz.) Great Northern Beans (rinsed). Then I mix in 1 White Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Unseeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste, 1 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). Throw in a 1/2 cup of Water and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. Then you have yourself some good, comfort food Chili! You can serve it many ways; in a bowl or mug and top it with your favorite Cheese or Chopped Green Onions with a side of Oyster Crackers. Another way to have it is served on top of a Johnny Cake (Cornbread), which I did tonight, or have a side of Cornbread with it.

 

 

 

To prepare Johnny Cakes all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. To serve I placed mine on a plate and topped it with my 3 Bean Buffalo Chili and Shredded Cheese. And now it’s Comfort Food Heaven! The Chili is a perfect pairing with Cornbread no matter how you prepare your Cornbread. For dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Buffalo Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

 

Cloudy, windy, and rain on and off all day today. They say some really cold weather moving in, a Saturday high of only in the 20’s. Really didn’t feel like cooking a lot today so I got in the freezer and grabbed the Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili I had frozen. It’s the last of Chili I had frozen, so I’ll be making a new batch soon! For dinner tonight, I prepared the Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili along with some Johnny Cakes.

First time I added Peanut Butter, a friend of mine that enters a lot of Chili Competitions told me to give it a try. It does give your Chili a rich flavor. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste, 1 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tbs.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili

Mom  and 3 Bean Buffalo Chili 004

 

 

Another hot, humid, and hazy day out there but they say Fall like weather for the weekend, I hope their right! We did get a brief shower but it just made it that much more humid. Reorganized the junk room, if that’s possible! Did throw away a lot of stuff that I don’t need. Starting on the Pantry tomorrow. For dinner one of my favorites, if not my top favorite, Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili! I love Chili and I love Buffalo so what’s not to like! When I first started making the 3 Bean Chili I used Lean Ground Turkey. Now I use Wild Idea Ground Buffalo. Either way is delicious and healthy.

 

 
Besides the Ground Buffalo I use 3 different types of Beans; 1 (15 oz.) Can of Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans, 1 Can Bush’s (15 oz.) Kidney Beans (rinsed), and 1 Can Bush’s (15 oz.) Great Northern Beans (rinsed). For spices I start with 1 Packet McCormick’s Original Chili Mix, 1 White Onion (medium), Chopped or Minced, 1 Jalapeno Pepper, Unseeded and Chopped, 3 Cloves Minced Garlic, 1 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin, 2 Tsps Ground Cinnamon, 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves, and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste. For extra kick and flavor I added 1 White Onion (medium), Chopped or Minced, 1 Jalapeno Pepper, Unseeded and Chopped, 3 Cloves Minced Garlic, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste, and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste. Nothing but good!

 

 
To prepare it just brown 2 (1 lb.) packages of Wild idea Buffalo Ground Buffalo in large saucepan on medium-high heat 10 min. or until no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Add all remaining spices and ingredients except 1 can of the tomato paste and the cheese and crackers. Add to slow cooker and add in the remaining 1 can of tomato paste and 1/2 cup water. Cover with lid. Cook on HIGH 3 to 4 hours (or on LOW 5 to 6 hours). I usually cook it on low. Serve in bowl or mug with cheese and the oyster crackers, A Tablespoon of fat-free sour cream, or serve with some home made cornbread and ENJOY! For dessert later I tried a new one, Sans Sucre Mousse Cheesecake Dessert Cup. Something a little different and turned out real good! I left a another post on this and how to make it. Only 80 calories and 7 carbs per serving.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Buffalo Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

3 Bean Buffalo Chili

3 Bean Buffalo Chili

 
A while back I purchased 3 lbs. of Wild Idea Ground Buffalo and have been waiting to use 2 lbs of it to make a Crock Pot full of 3 Bean Buffalo Chili ! Well today’s the day. I made myself an early breakfast, exercised, and then started getting everything started to make a crock pot full of 3 Bean Buffalo Chili! For dinner I made 3 Bean Buffalo Chili w/ Johnny Cakes.

 

I usually use Extra Lean Jennie – O ground Turkey when making my Crock Pot 3 Bean Chili but I had been wanting to use Buffalo, or Bison if you prefer, for a while now but Bison is a bit more pricier than ground Turkey. Wild Idea Buffalo had Ground Buffalo on sale so I purchased 3 lbs. of it, so I had my Ground Buffalo for the Chili! I used 2 lbs. of it to make the Chili. To make the Chili, along with the 2 lbs. of Wild Idea Ground Buffalo, I added the following; 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste, 1 Can (15 oz.) Chili Beans, 1 Can (15 oz.) Kidney Beans, rinsed, 1 Can (15 oz.) Great Northern Beans, rinsed, 1/2 Cup of Water, 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 1 White Onion (medium), Chopped or Minced, 1 Jalapeno Pepper, Unseeded and Chopped, 1 Tbs Minced Garlic, 1 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin, 2 Tsps Ground Cinnamon, 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves, and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste. The full recipe and instructions follow at the end of the post.
I used our older stand-up Crock Pot, it’s my Mom’s and she’s had it for at least 20 years or more and it still works like it’s brand new. I lined it with Reynold’s Crock pot Liners, a must if you use a Crock Pot a lot! These liners make cooking in a Crock Pot even easier. Just put them in the Crock Pot and spray with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. When your food is done just empty it from the Pot and dispose of the liner. It can’t get much easier. I then browned the Buffalo in large saucepan on medium-high heat 10 min. or until no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Added all the remaining spices and ingredients except 1 can of the tomato paste and the cheese and crackers. Stirred until it was well mixed. While that was cooking I opened all 3 cans of Beans, rinsing the Kidney Beans and Great Northern Beans. I mixed all 3 cans together in a large bowl and added the 2nd can of Tomato Paste to the Beans and stirred. Then I added half of the bowl of Beans to the Crock Pot and topped it with the Buffalo and Spices mix and topping that with the rest of the Beans. Covered with the lid , and let simmer and cook, on low, for about 8 hours. About 2 hours into the cooking time your kitchen should fill up the fantastic aroma of the Chili!

 

The Turkey 3 Bean Chili is delicious but it can’t compare with Buffalo 3 Bean Chili! The Buffalo meat just has that sweet taste to it that makes it different from other meats, plus it’s healthier than other meats. If you’ve never had Buffalo Chili you have to try it when you can! As I’ve also said the Wild Idea Buffalo is the best Buffalo I’ve ever had, and a lot of that is how the Buffalo is raised at Wild Idea. I’ve left info all about Wild Idea Buffalo along with the web link at the bottom of the post. Along with The Chili I made a side of Johnny Cakes (Fried Cornbread). For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread topped with a couple of scoops of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

Wild Idea Buffalo meat is:Wild Idea

* Lower in calories, fat, and cholesterol than chicken or fish.
* 40% more protein than beef.
* Nutrient-dense, flavor rich, outrageously lean, and high in antioxidant Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin E.
* 100% native grass fed – delivering 3.5x more omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed bison.
* Red Meat That’s Good for You!

Wild Idea Buffalo is unlike any other meat company. We began with a vision of actually improving the eco-system of the Great Plains. Our buffalo are raised on the wide open spaces of South Dakota where they eat only the native grasses beneath their feet. They spend their whole lives roaming freely on thousands of acres, and never see a feedlot or slaughterhouse. The result is better lives for the bison, the restoration of over 100,000 acres of the prairie, and sweet, delicious red meat that is actually good for you. Not such a wild idea after all!

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Grilled Cheese SandwichChili Grilled Cheese 002

 

 

It was comfort food Heaven for dinner tonight, 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich! It’s good anytime of the year but especially when it’s cold outside, warms the body no matter how cold it is outside!

 

 

So I took my last container of the Chili out of the freezer over night and let thaw in the fridge, then just warm it up and it’s ready to go. I make it with Honeysuckle White Extra Lean Ground Turkey and 3 different Beans; Spicy Chili Beans, Dark Red Low Sodium Kidney Beans, and Great Northern White Beans. I add 1 Packet of McCormick Chili Mix to it and then load up the great spices on top of it; 1 Tbs Minced Garlic, 1 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tsp. Ground Roasted Cumin, 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves, and 5 Dashes (or more) of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste! I also add 2 small cans of Tomato Paste and 1/2 cup of Water. COVER with lid and cook and simmer on HIGH 3 to 4 hours (or on LOW 5 to 6 hours). I cooked mine on low for about 5 1/2 hours. You’ll love the aroma as it slowly cooks. When ready I topped with just a bit of fresh grated Dutch Gouda and about 3 shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.
I served it with a Grilled Cheese Sandwich that I made with Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar and Swiss Cheese. I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to butter the bread with before grilling. Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are great! You can fix it so many ways with endless toppings. Chili and Grilled Cheese, it doesn’t get much better! For dessert later a Honeybell Orange with some Apple slices.

Today’s Menu: Three Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread
Well Winter is here to stay. Not quite as windy but another cold but sunny Winter day. So like yesterday I wanted a hearty and healthy 3 Bean Turkey Chili 001dinner that would warm you up a bit. So I prepared Three Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread!

 
I love this Chili! Made in a Crockpot, which makes it a breeze to clean up. I just get everything prepped and ready in the morning and load the Crockpot up! I make it with Honeysuckle White Extra Lean Ground Turkey and 3 different Beans; Spicy Chili Beans, Dark Red Low Sodium Kidney Beans, and Cannellini White Beans. I add 1 Packet of McCormick Chili Mix to it and then load up the great spices on top of it; 1 Tbs Minced Garlic, 1/2 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tsp. Ground Roasted Cumin, 1/2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon, 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves, and 5 Dashes (or more) of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste! I also add 2 small cans of Tomato Paste and 1/2 cup of Water. Cover with lid and cook on HIGH 3 to 4 hours (or on LOW 5 to 6 hours). I cooked mine on low for about 5 1/2 hors. After about 2 hours everything starts to come together and the aroma of the simmering Chili starts to fill the kitchen! Too Good!! I left the full recipe at the bottom of the post.

 

I also baked a small cast iron skillet of Cornbread. Cornbread and Chili are the perfect couple. I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix. I guess I use the Martha White Brand because my Mom always used it along with my Grandmother. It’s easy to fix, the instructions are on the bag. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. For dessert a mini Banana Split. I make it with a Dole Mini Banana (that I split in half), Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream, Smuckers Sugar Free Hot Fudge Topping, and Walnut pieces.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili and Cornbread

 

It’s a cold and windy Halloween Day around here today. Perfect weather for my nearly famous 3 Bean Turkey Chili! I’ve got 2 or 3 servings frozen yet from the last batch I made. i just unfreeze it and warm it up and I have Chili! I make it with Honeysuckle White Extra Lean Ground Turkey and 3 different Beans; Spicy Chili Beans, Dark Red Low Sodium Kidney Beans, and Great Northern White Beans. I add 1 Packet of McCormick Chili Mix to it and then load up the great spices on top of it; 1 Tbs Minced Garlic, 1 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tsp. Ground Roasted Cumin, 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves, and 5 Dashes (or more) of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste! I also add 2 small cans of Tomato Paste and 1/2 cup of Water. COVER with lid and cook and simmer on HIGH 3 to 4 hours (or on LOW 5 to 6 hours). I cooked mine on low for about 5 1/2 hours. You’ll love the aroma as it slowly cooks. When ready I topped with just a bit of fresh grated Dutch Gouda and about 3 shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.
