In the beginning,
two pirate shipmates became mateys by marriage through the Cutlers.
Now they face a world uncertain where only cooking, cutting, baking (and other things) are there only way for survival on the island!

Off to the decks (or kitchen floors) we go!

Mexican Pirates?!?

Yes, I believe Larry is a bit of a Mexican pirate.  He loves Mexican food and well, he only spent two years of his life in Mexico!!!:)  So shortly after we were married, I found this recipe (Mexican Chicken Casserole) and it has gotta be in the top-5 list of Larry's faves.  So here goes:

4 chicken breasts
8 flour tortillas
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup milk
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (7 oz.) can green chili sauce
1/2 lb. Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1/2 lb. Cheddar cheese, grated

Salt and pepper chicken.  Wrap in foil and bake at 400 for 1 hour.  Cool, bone, and cut up.  Cut tortillas in 1 inch strips.  Mix soups, milk, onion, and chili sauce.  Butter 9x13 inch casserole dish and put in chicken juices that you got from baking chicken in foil.  Layer tortillas, soup mixture, chicken, and cheeses.  Refrigerate for 24 hours, ten bake 1 hour at 375.  (May take 1/2 hour longer because of altitude.)

We love to eat it with a side a spanish rice, beans, chips, salsa, cilantro, horchata... you get the idea!
