Loralee's Cookbook

Just making my recipe box public so my sweetie can track his meals too. :)

I almost never make a recipe the same way twice. But the biggest change I make will be to either add more veggies, or more or fewer spices. Really, it won't change the calorie count that much.

Sometimes I add fresh onion, or other fresh veggies. Sometimes I add salsa.
But this is just my basic, plain old chili recipe.

I make this much to serve my family of ten. Some love it, some hate it (Kids!). I don't know how much each serving is.

Delicious Asian-restaurant-style dish!
You can use any veggies you like--in pretty much any quantity you like. (I make lots, for a BIG family!)

Originally this dish is Lamb with White Beans. I usually make it with a lean pork loin roast because it's less expensive and more readily available around here. But you can just cook the tomatoes and beans and serve them over brown rice or pasta--and it is delicious.

For a very nice main dish, press a pork-loin roast down into the bean and tomato mixture; sprinkle the meat with salt, rosemary and thyme and baste with juices from the pan. Roast at 300 for 2-3 hours.

OR Just cook the tomato/bean stuff on the stove and then press some leftover chicken breast pieces into it; then cook until the chicken is heated through.

[You're on your own to get the nutritional values for the meat, if you add it. :-) ]

OR just use the tomato/bean mixture, as is, over brown rice or pasta.
