Recipe For Chicken and Rice with Meat

Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter
1/2 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 3/4 cups hot water
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 cup uncooked basmati rice
1/2 cup pine nuts

Directions

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook the ground beef until evenly brown. Season with allspice, cinnamon, and pepper, and continue cooking 1 minute. Pour in the hot water, season with salt, and place the chicken in the skillet. Cover, and cook 25 minutes, until chicken juices run clear.

Remove chicken from skillet, and shred. Return to skillet, and mix in the rice. Cover, and continue cooking 20 minutes, until rice is tender, and liquid has been absorbed.

In a separate skillet over medium heat, cook and stir the pine nuts 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Sprinkle pine nuts over the beef, chicken, and rice mixture to serve.

Chicken Taquitos

Ingredients

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cooked and shredded
1 1/2 cups shredded smoked Cheddar and Swiss cheese blend
1 (7 ounce) can green salsa
1 cup chopped onion
20 (6 inch) corn tortillas
1 quart peanut oil for frying, or as needed
1 cup sour cream (optional)
1 cup chunky salsa (optional)
1 cup guacamole (optional)

Directions

Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a medium bowl, mix together the shredded chicken, cheese, green salsa, and onion. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture onto tortillas, or enough so that when rolled up, each one is about 1 inch wide. Filling should not come to close to the ends, or it will fall out. Secure rolls with toothpicks.

Fry rolls 4 or 5 at a time so there is enough room between them for even cooking. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Once they float, I leave them in for about another minute. If the taquitos are not crisp when cool, you haven’t cooked them long enough. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sour cream, salsa and guacamole for dipping.
