Nacho Cheesy Chicken Rice


For the Sauce:

2 Cans Cream of Chicken Soup (or 1 family sized can)
1/2 cup Asiago Cheese
1/2 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 can of Chunk Chicken Breast, drained & shredded
1-1/2tbsp your choice of oil (I use red pepper oil)
1tbsp Taco Seasoning
1tbsp Cumin
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup Milk

For the Rice:

1 can of Kidney Beans, drained
5 cups Long Grain Rice
1-1/2tbsp your choice of oil (I use red pepper oil)
1/4 Vidalia Onion - Minced
1/8 Serrano Chili - Minced
1tbsp Ginger paste
10 cups water/chicken stock (whichever you prefer)

Heat 1.5tbsp oil in a LARGE skillet, place onion, chili and ginger paste, saute until onion is slightly transparent, add in the rice & give a few tosses to coat thoroughly & fry slightly.  Add stock/water & kidney beans, cover & bring to a boil, turn heat down to a simmer & let it simmer for 20-25 minutes or until all liquid is gone.

In another pot place cream of chicken, taco seasoning, milk, cumin, sour cream and cheeses, heat on low, constantly stirring until all the cheese is melted, add shredded chicken & stir to mix. When everything is mixed together turn off the heat and cover with a loose fitting lid (I use my oval crockpot lid on my large round pot).

Combine together sauce & rice, mix thoroughly & serve hot with shredded lettuce, diced onion, diced tomato, cilantro, sour cream etc or if you like serve it plain by itself ;)

Indian Frybread

1 ½ cups warm water
1 cup shortening
Extra flour to flour your hands

Put flour in bowl, add baking powder, salt and powdered milk. Mix.

Cover hands in flour.

Knead dough by hand until soft but not sticky. Cover with a cloth and let stand for 15 minutes.

Shape dough into balls about 2 inches across then flatten by patting and stretching the dough.

Melt shortening about an inch deep in frying pan. When hot put dough in pan. Fry one side till golden brown, then turn and fry the other.

This is a wonderful bread that can be used as a dessert by topping with honey, powdered sugar, etc. or can be used for main dishes such as topping with taco ingredients for an "Indian Taco"
