Creamy Hatch Chile and Mushroom Chicken Breasts

Rating: 5 stars
I made this dish with Hatch chiles that I had in my freezer and some onions and mushrooms that needed to be used. I served it over a bed of cilantro-lime rice. I shredded my chicken breast and mixed it in with the rice. Hubby preferred his chicken breast whole. We're going through a stay-at-home order due to the Coronavirus pandemic and this was a great meal to make with items that I already had.

Sea Bass San Sebastian

Rating: 4.67 stars
Chilean sea bass, also known as Patagonian toothfish, has landed on lots of 'do not eat this' lists due to overfishing, but the fish can be found through sustainable sources. Flavored mayonnaise keeps the sea bass moist while it's cooking, and you can create countless sauce variations by changing the seasonings. The recipe is inspired by the cuisine of San Sebastian.

Best Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

Rating: 5 stars

Hatch chiles and tomatillos take this white chili to another level. I like to make my own roasted salsa verde but you can always use jarred or canned. Cooked in the slow cooker for ease and convenience. Top with your choice of sliced avocados, shredded cheese, cilantro, or sour cream.
