Snarf, I used to use extra broad egg noodles, but now I use a "no yoke" brand of broad flat noodle. The trick is LOTS of paprika, I mean lots to the point where the whole mixture is almost brown. The sour cream thickens it a little and changes the taste.

My mother was from Brazil and this is our traditional family meal. We had it once a week when I was a kid. My wife now makes it for me.


BLACK BEANS

1 Pkg. dry Black Beans/Turtle Beans - pick rocks and dirt out of beans, then rinse.
1 Onion, chopped
2 Tbsp. Garlic, minced
1 Tsp. Celery salt
3 Whole bay leaves
1 Pkg. Smoked Sausage
3 med Smoked Ham Hocks
1 Tsp. Black Pepper
5 cups water

Combine all ingredients in dutch oven. (Heavy aluminum pan works best).
Cook until beans start to boil. Then reduce heat and cover, let simmer
for about 6 hours. Make sure to stir often and check water, add as needed to keep beans covered.
(Sometimes beans soak up too much water and you may need to add more.)
Remove bones and fat from ham hocks when done. Return meat to pan. 

Serve over rice.

Make 'fadafa' by sautéing cornmeal in butter in skillet. Sprinkle over beans and rice.

I like to add some sliced jalapenos. My dad liked to add apple cider vinegar to his.

Bacon and Green Chili Quiche

1 Marie Calendar pie crust
3 or 4 Fresh roasted NM Hatch green chilies
¾ lbs Bacon (I like to use center cut for less fat)
5 eggs warmed in a bowl of water (warm not hot)
1 cup Heavy cream warmed in a microwave (again, warm not hot)
(warming the eggs and cream makes for more even baking without over cooking the surface)

Pre bake pie crust with a pie ring or strips of foil to protect the rim of the crust for 12 minutes at 375 degrees.

peel and chop green chilies
cook and chop bacon
Beat eggs together with the cream in a large bowl, salt and pepper to taste
Evenly distribute bacon and green chilies on the bottom of pre baked pie crust
Pour egg and cream mixture over the bacon and green chilies.
With pie ring or foil still in place bake at 375 for 35 min.
Remove pie ring or foil for the last 10 minutes of baking.
Stick tooth pick in the center, if it comes out wet with egg and cream, bake another 5 min.
Let cool and firm up for at least 10 min. Enjoy
(this recipe also works well with fresh chopped spinach lightly sauteed in bacon drippings)

This is an awesome thread, and I am very surprised by the majority of these recipes are ok for diabetics, like myself.
Now the Raspberry margaritas might drift me over the edge, but it sounds like it would be worth it.

I'll give it a shot.  The only thing I make that everyone in my family really likes is tuna fish salad.  Great sandwich to have on a Sunday while watching an old movie or a game.  Here 'tis:

2 cans of Bumble Bee solid white tuna.  Only buy the premium "Black can" Bumble Bee.

One hard boiled egg.

A tablespoon or so of finely chopped Vidalia onion (Or any sweet onion).  Sometimes I make it with finely chopped scallions, for something different.

A stalk of celery chopped pretty fine (I always buy just the heart of celery).

Salt and pepper to taste.

A few shakes of "Old Bay" seasoning.

Mix that all around, breaking the tuna into small flakes.

Add a generous amount of real mayonnaise (I typically use Helman's because that's all I can find in the store.  However, there are better out there.  Just not in NH).

Add half the amount of Cool Whip compared to however much mayonnaise you used.  In other words, use mayonnaise to Cool Whip in a 2 to 1 ratio.

Mix that all around real good and put in the fridge for at least two hours to get it good and cold.

Put it on home made or any really good white bread, toasted.

Serve with potato chips and, I also always have it with a can of Cambell's chicken noodle soup.  Yeah, I know Cambell's really isn't very good, but I'm hooked on it.

I'm a little bit of a tuna salad addict and have tried many recipes over the years.  The one above seems to be the one I like the best, but would love to see any others you guys might have.  My Grandmother's cook, Mildred, made the absolute best tuna salad I ever had.  She died quite a few years ago and she took that recipe with her.  I have tried for years to recreate hers with no success.  It was heavenly....

Are you sure you mean "Cool Whip" (whipped cream type substance) and not "Miracle Whip" (mayonnaise like substance) ?

Okay, that was pretty stupid.  Yes, I meant Miracle whip.  I knew there was something off as I was typing it.  Although, I wonder what it would taste like.....

OK, looks like I'll be trying some new dishes this weekend, good timing.

My buddy make the most incredible chile rellenos (stuffed peppers), so I came up with a white boy version. I make it almost every weekend now.

15 poblano chilies
1 pound of jack cheese
8 eggs

Sauce
crushed tomatoes
purreed onion
finely diced cilantro
pinch of salt
few pinches of cumin


15 large poblano chiles. Roast them thoroughly, until the skins blacken. I do it on the grill but you can do it under the broiler. Warning! It will stink up your house. Throw them in a heavy plastic bag while hot, and close it up for a bit. The steam helps loosen the skins.

When cool, remove the skins. If you roasted them well, it will be easy. A little rinse in the sink will get them clean. Cut off the stems then put one big slice down the chile to open it up. Now you can remove all the seeds, or if you're like me and like some heat in your food, leave some in. 

A make a very simple tomato sauce from pureed onion and crushed tomatoes with a little chopped cilantro. Put a thin layer of sauce in a baking dish, then a layer your 'flattened' chiles followed by a layer of (I like it cubed) Jack cheese. Alternate layers of chilies and cheese. I usually get three layers of chilies with cheese in between.

Separate 8 eggs. Beat the whites until they are frothy and semi-peaked. Fold in the yolks gently then pour the mixture over the chiles in the baking dish. Don't over fill it, it rises a bit and can make a mess.

Throw it in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes. Take it out and let it rest for about 5 minutes and get ready to overwhelm your senses. I have a small pot of the above tomato sauce. Some folks like a little over the top, some don't. 

Make some rice and beans, pico de gallo and chips and you have a feast.

That was absolutely the best green bean thing I have ever eaten. Idea came from Vegitarian Times magazine my wife had. I didn't follow recipe just read the name and went to work.

Tonight I grilled another pizza by far the best I have ever made for my Daughters 19th Birthday.
Stuff on pizza
Grilled hamburger with onions and green peppers grilled in.
I sun dried Heirloom Cherokee purple tomatoes today so i put them on
Purple onions, roasted red peppers, some Blue cheese from England, some dry cured black olives from France and mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Made my own tomato sauce and crust of course. Grilled pizza in the weber.

Just thinking, you might want to go back and edit your original post, in case someone doesn't scroll down and see the correction.  The results might be horrifying.
