Tip of The Day #4

Don't put food cooking while trying to do an indoor trainer ride.

You will get very hungry during your "ride"! I did this last night. Mistake. Even though it was only rice cooking the smell of food combined with a tough interval ride made me very hungry!

Made a quickie dinner. This started out as a receipie for vegetarian mexican rice cassarole, and ended up as chicken and rice burritos. I cubed, and stir-fried some rum-marinated chicken breasts. This is the second time this week I've used rum to marinate chicken. I like the combination.

Next came chopped onions, chili peppers, green onions, cilantro, and shredded jack cheese. Added rice to this and mixed up. Sour cream, cumin, salt, and pepper - mixed together, then combined with the rice and chicken in a bowl.

I put this in a cassarole dish and heated it in the oven until the cheese was melted and it was warmed through.

And served in warm tortillas.

I think I'll add some Rotel tomatoes next time....
