    Rich's Classic Fish Taco (cheri)
    2 pounds - red snapper fillets
    1 dozen - corn tortillas
    beer batter as needed (recipe for Rich's beer batter follows)
    Cut fish fillets into approx. 2 - 3 ounce portions. Dust lightly with flour and dip in beer batter. Deep fry the batter coated fish in hot oil (375 degrees F) until crisp and golden brown. Serve the fish wrapped in folded corn tortillas (warmed on a hot comal as needed) with shredded cabbage, white sauce, and aditional garnish of tomato, avocado, and shredded cheese as desired and top with a wedge of lime. Corn tortillas are traditional for fish tacos, but small "fajita" size flour tortillas can be substituted if desired...and, while a half 'n half yogurt and mayonnaise white sauce is traditionally served with fish tacos, other salsas such as salsa fresca or salsa verde can be offered as well for those who might prefer. I like my white sauce spiced and a little bit more like a tartar sauce...

    Rich's Spiced Yogurt 'n Mayo White Sauce (cheri)
    *Habanero chile will add a respectable level of heat to this white sauce. Other fresh chiles can be substituted if less heat is desired. The consistency of the sauce should be slightly runny so it can be spooned onto or stored in a squeeze bottle to be drizzled onto the fish tacos to individual discretion.
    1.0 - habanero chile
    0.5 cup - plain, unflavored yogurt
    0.5 cup - mayonnaise
    1.0 teaspoon - capers
    0.5 teaspoon - crushed Mexican oregano
    0.5 teaspoon - ground cumin
    0.5 teaspoon - dried, crushed dill
    0.25 teaspoon - ground cayenne chile
    fresh lime juice as needed
    ground white pepper to taste Mix yogurt and mayonnaise in a bowl. Gradually stir in fresh lime juice until a slightly runny consistency is acheived. Finely dice the habanero chile and capers and add to the yogurt/mayo mix. Blend in the spices, cayenne, fresh dill and then add white pepper to taste. If the sauce is too thick, add a little fresh lime juice until consistency is correct.

    (Makes about 2 cups)
    1 - egg

    chicken pot pie (saysayohplaymate)
    Boil a whole chicken, save the broth( I usually add bouillion cubes to the broth)
    Remove all the meat and put in a large bowl. Add one large can of Veg All(we like the one with onions) and one large can of cream of chicken soup
    Mix together, using broth to make it creamy
    Salt and pepper to taste

    In a large oven safe container( or two small) mix together 4-5 pkgs of Jiffy Sweet cornbread mix(using more broth) and cover bottom and sides
    Fill with chicken mixture
    Cover with cornbread mixture
    Bake until cornbread is done

    This will make us 2- 9 qt containers, if its too much cut it down. It can he halved very easy, and it won't hurt the taste.

    I'd like to add that you can bake a chicken, or use leftovers, and low salt broth or plain water to cut back on the salt and calories.

    Roasted Red Pepper Sauce (lumpyloohoo)

    2-3 Roasted Red Peppers or 12 oz jar of Roasted Red Peppers
    1 tsp butter
    1 cup Heavy cream
    1 cup Parmesan Cheese


    Chop roasted red peppers- I like them almost pureed, which I do at the end with a stick blender at the end of making the sauce, but it is not necessary, just chop them fine.

    Sauté in butter in fry pan for 1-2 minutes on medium heat

    Add cream and cook until thickened for 2-3 minutes

    Add cheese and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes

    Toss with hot pasta and serve -yummy!

    I roast my own peppers in bulk when they are on sale and then freeze them in baggies until I need them- I use roasted red peppers often- I have a great appetizer I use them for and I use them on Pizza also. I roast them either in the oven or on the gas grill.

    Stir in sour cream until smooth. Serve over hot cooked noodles. Yield: 8

    -I did not like the original recipe I found of this..So I changed several things, and you could say i "wrote" this, because I changed a few ingredients and the measurements of almost everything.
