Ingredients:

3 large boneless Chicken Breasts

1 large can of Hunts Tomato Sauce

1 small can of RO*TEL Original Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies

1 Cubanelle Pepper

1 large Green Bell Pepper

1 large Red Pepper

2 fresh Plum Tomatoes

Start by washing your chicken and setting it aside.

Next, chop up your Peppers and Plum Tomatoes into 1/2 inch pieces.

Next, chop up your Vidalia Onions. (Reserve some onions for later to top your Chili - cut very these very fine).


Now it's time to add your Chicken, Peppers and Onions into your Crock-Pot.


Next, add in your can Hunts Tomato Sauce and your can of RO*TEL Original Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies.

Next, add in your McCormick Chili Powder about 1/2 of a 2.5 ounce bottle.

Next, season to taste with Cracked Black Pepper, Paprika, Garlic Salt and Garlic Powder.

Now add in about 2 tablespoons of Yellow Mustard and about 6 tablespoons of Ketchup.

Next, add in 4-5 shakes of Tabasco (More if you want it extra spicy).


Mix everything really well.


Turn on your Crock-Pot to the slow 8 hour mode.

After about 2 hour of cooking time add in your 3 cans of beans water and all. (1 can of dark Kidney Beans, 1 can of Pinto Beans, 1 can of Black Beans).


In the last hour or so, remove the Chicken from the Crock-Pot and Shred up the Chicken.

Add the Chicken back into the Crock-Pot to absorb all of that Chili flavor.


Finish cooking until the time is up. (Let it sit for about 15 minutes prior to serving to thicken up).


Now it's time to plate and serve!

Alexia'a Spectacular Stuffed Mushrooms!

Oh so good!

Alexia'a Spectacular Stuffed Mushrooms!


Ingredients:

15-20 extra large white mushrooms

1 1/2 sticks of salted butter

1 box of Ritz crackers (4 sleeves)

1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese

1 cup of shredded Gruyere cheese

8 cloves of fresh minced garlic

1 bunch of fresh chopped parsley

1/4 lb thin sliced pepperoni (cut julienne style)

12 mushroom finely chopped mushroom stems

Cracked black pepper

Garlic powder

Cooking spray


Start by cleaning your mushrooms and hollowing them out removing the stem (save the stems to add to the stuffing).

Next, crush up your Ritz crackers.

In a large mixing bowl combine the Ritz crackers, grated Parmesan and Gruyere cheese, mix well.

Next, season your cracker mixture to taste with cracked black pepper and garlic powder.

Next, add in your minced garlic, chopped fresh parsley and chopped mushroom stems, mix well.

Next, add in your sliced pepperoni and butter (melt down your butter prior to adding) mix well. 

Your stuffing consistency should be slightly sticky and you should be able to mold it into a ball and it will not crumble apart. (If you feel it is a little dry you can add in a little more butter until you get the consistency you desire). 


Next, spray your baking dish with some cooking spray.

Stuff your mushrooms and lay them out evenly in your dish. ****TIP - Alexia likes to add some fresh plain mushrooms scattered across the top of the stuffed mushrooms to give them some extra mushroom flavor during the cooking process. 

Cover your mushrooms with foil. 


Now your ready to bake! 

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.

Cook your mushrooms for 45 minutes to an hour then uncover and continue to cook until the mushrooms are tender and the tops are brown and crispy.
