Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Old Ebbitt Grill's White Bean Chili

chicken, tex-mex

1 for the beans:
1 lb white navy beans
1 small red bell pepper -- diced
1 small green bell pepper -- diced
1 medium spanish onion -- diced
2 tablespoon olive oil
7 cup chicken stock
2 cloves garlic -- diced
2 teaspoon cumin -- or to taste
3 teaspoon chili powder -- or to taste
3 plum tomatoes -- chopped
1 salt and pepper to taste
1 for the chicken:
3 whole bone-in chicken
1 breast
1 (14 to 16 ounces)
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon diced garlic
2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 to serve:
1 salsa for topping
4 quesadillas* or corn bread
1 chopped fresh cilantro for
1 garnish

For the beans: Soak beans overnight in water to cover. Drain. Over low heat, stir peppers and onion in olive oil for one minute. Add beans and saute over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add stock, garlic, cumin and chili powder. Simmer, uncovered, until beans are soft, about 1 1/2 hours, adding more broth as necessary. Stir in tomatoes about 20 minutes before beans are done and season to taste with salt and pepper. To Roast the chicken: Crack the breast bones to flatten. Rub breasts with oil and season with remaining ingredients. Then roast in a preheated 350 degree oven about 30 minutes, being sure not to overcook. Cool slightly and remove meat form bones. (If boneless breasts are used, grilling is preferable since they would dry out quickly if roasted.) To Serve: Place a generous portion of beans in large, flat soup bowl. Slice chicken thinly, keeping skin on (skin may be removed, but some of the seasoning will be lost) and place on top of the beans. Garnish with salsa, sour cream, cilantro, and a warm quesadilla. *Make quesadillas by tipping a soft flour tortilla with about 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese, 2 T sour cream, and hot peppers to taste. Fold each into quarters and warm through in a 350F oven. This recipe was touted by Barbra Streisand during her visit Inauguration week. Aretha Frankin also took 3 qts home to Detroit.
