Air Fryer Chicken Breasts with Sofrito Sauce

I keep seeing recipes on air fryer Facebook groups that use baking powder to coat chicken for frying.  Well, I’m here to tell you that flat WORKS!  You will simply be amazed!  I can’t convey how crisp this chicken came out.  My husband said I could “do this one again and SOON!”  I want to …

Sofrito Zoodles

These healthy “noodles” will be delicious alongside a variety of meats or seafood.   Their flavor profile is most adaptable to what you are serving.  Last night I served them with broiled shrimp.  They will also serve as a foundation for a number of delicious meat stir-fries, Italian meat sauces and creamy seafood dishes.   They are …

Pork Chops in Creamy Sofrito Sauce

Yet another delicious dish I’ve created using my amazing Puerto Rican (Caribbean and Spanish as well) Sofrito as the key flavoring.  I just can’t say enough about how good this flavor ingredient is.  For this recipe I used seared pork chops s the foundation, but I have done this also with seared chicken breasts. This …

Sofrito Mayonnaise

When they’re in season in the summer, my husband just LOVES sliced tomatoes with mayonnaise for a quick salad.  I made something for him today at lunch that came out real good!  He originally asked if I could mix up a little of my caper mayonnaise, which he loves dearly with tomatoes: https://buttoni.wordpress.com/2009/08/08/caper-mayonnaise/.  But I …

Pork & Chorizo Taco Salad

This is a variation on the popular taco salad we all know and love.  Constructing it with pork and chorizo, along with the spices and sofrito I included, was quite delicious and a pleasant change of pace.  I didn’t have an avocado in the house or else a dollop of  guacamole would have been added to …

Chorizo-Stuffed Pattypan Squash

Normally I shy away from chorizo.   The commercial stuff can be very greasy and is usually way too heavy with spices for me.  But what I created for our lunch today with the chorizo I get from my grass-fed beef supplier (actually made by Eades Meat Market in Amarillo, TX) was anything but!  These little …

Mediterranean Beef and Eggplant on Zoodles

This is one of those dishes I just threw together.  I had family visiting. I needed easy.  I needed fast.   As with many “toss-in-the-skillet-as-you-go” recipes, they often turn out better than those sophisticated 20-ingredient, multi-phase culinary works of art.   But you guys know by now I’m all about EASY in the kitchen. All I can …
