Christmas Dinner

What did you have for dinner on Christmas this year?  We decided to mix it up and not do the regular ham that we have every year.  Boy, am I glad we did this as we got a new favorite  meal out of it! What we made:

Cilantro/Lime Basmati rice
Pinto Beans
Salsa
Slow Cooked Chipotle Chicken
Corn Tomalito

All wrapped up in delicious burritos, with the corn on the side.  And boy was that corn heavenly! Seriously, I can’t believe this was created in our kitchen.  This is something I have been trying to perfect for years but on Christmas it happened – I did it.  We slow cooked the chicken for 6 hours, but marinated it the night  before  in dried ancho chiles, chipotle peppers in adobe sauce.  Just thinking about has me wanting more, which is totally possible as this chicken easily created 4 meals for us!  All recipes will follow in the next few weeks.. I will be making it again and again and again.  In fact I’m making a new batch of cilantro rice right now (recipe coming later today!).
