Spanish rice

The rice was AMAZING! I ate about half of the pot! Its a very hard thing to cook Spanish rice, but the secret is turn the burner off while there is still about a quarter inch of water in it. Or else you will dry out the rice. I never knew that and mine always came out CRAPPY. I followed instruction this time and it came out perfect.

Dinner

Last night for dinner I did a cubesteak with onions and broth with whole grain rice. I t was very good. I definatley reccomend it. I always thought that cube steak was this gross, pathetic excuse for steak, but i tried it and LOVED it. It was not what i expected. If you are skeptical about trying cubesteak i think you should do it!

This morning I made Crepes, They were delicious. For dinner i made chicken Enchiladas. Also AMAZING... if i do say so myself. Easy to make too. But the tortillas i got were too small to wrap all of the ingredients in, so i just made it more of a chicken enchilada casserole. Tastes better than it sounds!
I dont like corn so i used black beans instead. But you could use anything your little heart disires.

All you need is:
3 Chicken breasts, (you can season them any way you want.)
Cheese... again any kind you like
corn or black beans or both
salsa
salt
pepper


You take your chicken and season it, then bake it in the oven for 20 minutes.
dont worry if it isnt cooked all the way through at the end because it will finnish cooking when you back the whole thing.

Then you shred the chiken with two forks, and set aside.

Preheat oven to 375

Then layer the bottom of a baking dish with salsa.

Roll all of you ingredients (chicken,beans,cheese,corn,ect.)
into tortillas, and bake for 30 minutes.

Enjoy:)
