Favorite cheat food recipes
What is your favorite cheat food recipe?
I am a firm believer that a cheat meal is necessary in order to maintain sanity and enjoy life.
So, give me your favorite recipe when you cheat.
Old Fashioned Colorado Green Chili
This is a flavorful, simple recipe that can easily be modified to suit your taste.
2 lbs. cubed pork
1 tbsp. minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
1/4 tsp pepper
3 tbsp. flour
2 cups diced fresh tomatoes (you can substitute 1 14 oz can)
1 14.5 oz can chicken broth
1 cup water
2 ½ cups diced green chiles (about 20 chiles)
2 cups diced onion.
Salt & pepper to taste.
Brown pork in skillet with garlic and pepper. Add flour and brown as well.
In crock pot, mix pork, garlic, tomatoes, water, green chiles and onion. Simmer for at least 2 hours. Water can be added to thin down and flour can be added to thicken.
(You can also cook it in a large pot on the stove at low heat.)
Hint: Let simmer at least an hour before tasting and modifying by adding chiles, more tomatoes, garlic, etc.
This is a very meaty, very slightly thickened chili – thin for Colorado style chili. If you like really thick chili, use 4-5 tbsp. flour rather than 3 and/or reduce the water.
Makes approximately 3 quarts. Serves 8-10.https://www.facebook.com/notes/john-...74247092659653
How is that a cheat meal? Good source of protein and lots of veggies.
I don't really have cheat meals. I enjoy eating healthy. If I need a boost, I will eat more of the typical foods I love. I may throw in some dessert from time to time, like a cheesecake or mint chocolate chip ice cream.
looking like a power packed health recipe ... i would love to have such an energy food..
Along with strawberries, oranges, peaches and grapefruit, apples contain pectin a form of fiber that can make you feel fuller for hours, these little gems have all the sweetness of lollies, with the added bonus of vitamin C and iron....
All of my "cheat" things are fairly healthy, I just eat more of it than I would otherwise. I love Pick Up Stix's tofu and broccoli without the carrots.. best dinner ever. I usually can either split it up for dinner one night then lunch the next day, or if I'm eating maintenance, I will eat it for dinner the munch on the leftovers the rest of the night :)
