As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.
Chipotle.....yes the beaner sandwich factory which was killing people, actually made me sick before it was toxic earth, as their chemical based food was poison to me......but this is not about poison, this is about doing something for food as most of you do not have time to cook.
So the Lame Cherry kitchen school is open for eaters and cookers. No there is no culinary nor chef here, just cooks and grubbers as that is what food is supposed to be.
You actually can cook enough for three meals for three people if you just invest a day preparing things, and then I found out that I have enough rice for 9 meals by cooking Spanish Rice once. I will give the recipes for the beaner sandwiches here, to show you how easy it is.
For rice, aka Spaniardo Rice, you just use 1 1/2 cups rice, 3 cups water, 1 tsp salt, 1 heaping teaspoons cumin, 1 teaspoon paprika and a heaping tablespoon of beef bouillon.
Just put the raw rice in the pan with oil, and parch it or brown it. Then put it into a regular water with the spices and make rice. You will find something you think is too strong flavored, but that is the deal as this is the seasoning for the burrito or whatever foldy Mexican thing you are building.
For meat, 1 lbs of hamburger, salt, pepper, 1 onion and 3 cloves of garlic. Once again you are keeping flavors separate so they remain distinct.
Ok, now you get yourself a big wheat tortilla.
Down the center, you put in a layer of hamburger, then rice, then drained black beans, then some tomatoes, some peppers, and top off with a Mexican blend cheese. Do not over pile as you will find out things get too big.
Put tinfoil in a baking dish, and lay the babies in the blanket which will be 5 to a 9 by 13 pan, and bake for whatever you want in heated or crispy.......20 minutes to an hour.
If you make the rice before and freeze it in 3 portions, you will have about enough for three times.
I honestly like mine with sour cream or ketchup, depending on my mood. But I make them in batches of 10 as that is what the tortillas come in, 8 or 10......stupid count, but I have a salad on the side and these leftovers keep good for a week. Makes cooking easy and that is the way it should be.
I could make refried beans and mash them up to a paste, but do not have the time. Many prepared foods make me sick and I bleed from the chemicals, so I stick with things I prepare myself.
There is no great secret to Mexican cooking, as it all tastes like dead Mexicans........meaning cumin and garlic are the spices to cover up rotten meat in the hot Mexican sun. Nutmeg was the choice of English to cover up rotten meat so they could stomach it.
So that is Mexican food and putting those spices in, sometimes oregano and you got Mexican.
Yes you can put salsas or whatever in this too, just nothing wet as soggy beaner sandwiches are ghastly. The cheese will leak out if you over cook, so that is why the aluminum foil.
Ok this is my filler as I was supposed to be writing something insightful and profound, but felt more like something fun to get the fingers working to go on to other things.
