On the day of the great Indigo Intervention, this is the meal that the great snake delayed momentarily. (As you may recall, I was returning from a quest for pepperoncini peppers when the snakeius interruptus occurred)
I cook a lot around here, but for this meal, Mrs. FC gets all the credit. It's a bit of a Caribeterranean mix with a Cuban Mojo chicken above as the meat dish. That's chicken breast marinated in orange juice, lime juice, and spices. The marinated chicken was browned in a cast iron skillet and was delicious.
For the dish above she got a little crazy and mixed in some corn with a Cuba black bean recipe and then served this atop a seasoned rice that she created. Like any good cook, she dug through some recipes and then tweaked them to make them her own.
As much as I like having dead animal on my plate, I could easily make a meal of just this rice and bean dish ... and I did for about two days afterwards.
Since our roots go back to the island of Minorca, out in the Mediterranean Sea, we tossed (heehee) a Greek Salad into this Caribbean meal.
