Fiesta Chicken

This dish was one of my husband's favorites growing up. Now that I have made it, I can see why he liked it so much. It is a great meal for the work week because it comes together quickly. You can even make it ahead and let it chill for several hours or overnight. Kids will like the cheese-stuffed chicken. I like to serve it with Mexican rice, beans and cheese-stuffed Anaheim peppers.

The following recipe provides a basic outline of Thai Chicken Curry but you can adjust the quantity of the ingredients according to your taste. Alter the spice with the chiles, the salt with the fish sauce, and the flavor and color with the curry paste.

This version of Moqueca de Peixe e Camarao (Brazilian Fish and Shrimp Stew) comes from the state of Bahia in northen Brazil. It reminds me of a Thai curry because of the coconut milk. You can make it with only fish - Moqueca de Peixe - or only shrimp - Moqueca de Camarao - but we liked it with the combination of seafood.

Chili Con Carne

Chili con carne (Chili) is Spanish for "chile peppers with meat." Traditionally, chili is a simple stew made of chile peppers, meat, cumin, garlic and onions. In my variation of chili, I include tomato paste to get the flavor of tomatoes in the broth without the chunks of tomato. I also use pinto and black beans for extra lean protein and fiber. Serve it with warm corn bread and honey.

This layered bean dip is always a crowd-pleaser at parties. At its most basic it is a 5-layer dip but it can easily become a 7-layer dip if you add multiple toppings with the cheese.

Southwest Tuna Melt

Tuna fish sandwiches are such an easy meal for lunches and dinners. Southwest flavors {salsa verde, chiles, avocado} give the tuna melt spice and character while light sour cream (instead of mayo) makes the tuna fish salad lower in fat without sacrificing any of the creaminess.
