Home Cooking Can Be Quick

I think you would agree with me when I say, “some of the best dishes you have ever had are just good old home cooking”. A lot of times we think of home cooking as almost a thing of the past. Because lets face it, our lives are different these days. Most of the time it is way easier to pick something up instead of doing some home cooking. But it really doesn’t have to be that way. Some dishes that I consider to be home cooking can actually be done in about an hour or less. Which isn’t bad if you consider the amount of time that you spend getting to the store or the take out place and then getting your food. This way you can go home pour yourself a glass of wine. Do some home cooking and everyone is better for it.

I have mentioned before I am a mother of 2 boys. Now my boys are 5 years apart. So a lot of times they can be on completely different schedule. One is in school the other isn’t. My seven year old (Colton) comes home and he may have swimming, which I have to get him ready for. Then he can go swimming and I have a 2 year old (Keenan), who I must entertain because right now he is basically stuck to me (you got to love the mommy stage). So while Colt is at swimming I try to get supper ready, before he and daddy get home. It never seems to matter how much I prepare for this day of the week it always seems frantic. So I always do something simple and for some reason I always do some home cooking I don’t know if it calms me or what. But I do know I do not want to be taking Keenan out at 5PM looking for dinner. Have you ever noticed that 2 year olds are not the same at 5pm as they are at 10 am? If you are a parent you definitely know what I am talking about.

So back to home cooking it doesn’t have to take you all day like when our grandparents cooked. It can be easy, quick and delicious. Now the easy part will be instead of homemade chicken broth buy a good quality one and buy lots when you are grocery shopping. The quick part is when you can basically throw everything into a pot and let it cook away. The delicious part is using the right ingredients.

I am going to share a recipe with you for a Chicken Soup, but with Mexican Latin flair to it. This is also one of my cooking with wine recipes again. Do you see a trend happening here with my cooking with wine? I will say one thing again, please cook with wine that you will drink.

Now the thing with this recipe is it maybe soup but it is a meal and parents and kids love it.

One other thing I should mentioned is you need cooked chicken breast. Now what I do is I cook the chicken in the stock you use in the recipe. Chicken cooks real fast this way. Now you could do this the night before. Or if you had a chicken dinner the night before and you have leftovers use them. It doesn’t have to be chicken breast it can be any part of the chicken.

Home Cooked Chicken Soup With A Crunch

2Tbsp Olive oil

1-cup onions chopped

3-4 cloves garlic chopped

½ 19oz can black beans rinsed and drained

1 cup white wine

1 heaping tsp cumin

1tsp Worcestershire sauce

1/2tsp ancho chili powder (you could use regular chili powder) the ancho has a smokier flavor

1 can of tomato soup

1 1/4 cartons of chicken stock

Cook chicken breast in some of the stock. Just enough stock to cover the breast. While chicken is cooking, sauté the onions and garlic in a soup pot or Dutch oven, add the rest of the ingredients. When chicken is done shred it and add that and the stock to the Dutch oven. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes.

I serve this with crushed tortilla chips and sour cream.
