3/4 cup cubed Hamsteak
8 oz can vegetarian baked beans( drained and rinsed)
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 small red onion – diced
1/3 cup sweet red peppers- diced
Chipotle hot sauce – to taste
Put onions and peppers and ham in hot pan and cook until brown
Add tomato sauce and hot sauce to taste.
So quick- so tasty….. Make sure you drain those beans.. We don’t want the sweetness of the bean juice.
Eat by itself or top off a nice baked potato or stuff a big old portabella cap!!! Don’t like ham????…. BBQ some tofu and substitute for the ham! Either way- dinner is only minutes away.
What’s up Chez Zigger’s??!!! I am out in Colorado hunting for inspiration and new tastes! Just enjoyed this open faced bison burger with bison Chili and salt and pepper onion rings- of course I enjoyed s local IPA🍺…. Restaurant was Ted’s Montanna Grill- awesome food and homemade pickles to boot!!
Serves 1 ( hungry Zig!😀)
5 pieces of chicken breast- scallopini cut
6 baby portabella mushrooms- sliced
2 cloves garlic- smashed
2 handfuls of baby spinach
1/4 cup white wine
1 TBsp butter
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
Salt and pepper the chicken with half of the paprika on each side
Saute for 2 minutes then add shrooms and garlic. Flip after 2 minutes and add butter. Scrape down pan then add wine. Reduce for 2 minutes and add spinach – cover til wilted.
Ok- smoked paprika…. Super powerful folks- use it wisely- with great flavor comes great responsibility . It imparts a nice subtle smokey, earthy tone – add the earthy flavor of the shrooms and the slightly bitter spinach….it’s a roller coaster for your taste buds… But the butter and wine keeps you on the tracks! I used Rhine wine, slightly sweet… Works best for this dish.
I fried up some red skinned potatoes and garlic to serve with this chicken.
