Chicken Taquitos

Nowadays flautas or taquitos are made with both corn and flour tortillas and could be filled with beef, chicken, pork, or all veggies. When making them for friends I always opt for a chicken filling because it is the most popular. I often make these in big batches and freeze them for a later date. They reheat easily in the oven. This is my quick version of chicken taquitos, flautas, and dorados.
Yields up to 8 servings Ingredients: 1 rotisserie chicken
2 cans (7 ounces each) of diced green chiles
1/2 cup grated Cotija or queso fresco, crumbled
1/4 cup green onions, diced
1/4 cup cilantro chopped
Juice of 1 lime or lemon
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
24 to 30 corn tortillas
Coconut oil
The most common ways flautas or taquitos are served is with rice, guacamole, and salad. One of the greatest tips I learned, was actually from my Thai friend Suwanee, while making fried spring rolls one day, I saw how she stood them up in a bowl lined with pap…

Biceps for Women

Best Biceps Workout Women Can Do:

1.  Concentration Curls

This is one of the best exercises to target the upper arms for women.  Bicep exercises are a crucial part of your arm toning workout and must be included.
This bicep exercise can be performed sat on a bench or a stability ball to add intensity to the core.
Start with a dumbbell in your hand and your palm facing forwards.Rest your elbow against the inner part of your thigh or knee, although you should avoid excessively pushing your leg against your elbow in order to help lift the dumbbell.Keep your chest up and your abs tight.As you bend your elbow and the lift the dumbbell up, exhale. Ensure smooth movement throughout.And as you slowly return the dumbbell to its original position, inhale, but be careful not to fully extend your arm as it lowers as this takes all the stress of the biceps.I like to do 3 sets of between 12-15 reps on each arm with this one.

2.  Hammer Curls

 This is a great one for women. Bicep exercises like this…

Japanese Salmon Hot Pot

Nabemono: Japanese Salmon and Shiitake Hot Pot  BY

Broth for Nabemono When I prepare nabemono at home, I start first as I do with any soup; I start with good broth.  To make a true fish stock requires fish bones, fish heads and other scraps which I typically don’t have access to, so I typically make my broth from a combination of kombu (a seaweed) and bonito flakes which is smoked and dried fish that’s shaved paper-thin.  You can find both in Asian markets and well-stocked health food stores.  Combined together with filtered water, they make dashi – traditional Japanese stock that, unlike other broths and stocks, takes only a little time as opposed to several hours for a good bone broth. Assembling the Nabemono I also like to paint a bit of miso onto the donabe itself – as the broth hits the ingredients and donabe, the miso dissolves and leaves its beautiful, rich flavor. After painting the pot with miso…

Asian Hot Pot Breakfast


All you need is, well... a pot Broth (beef, chicken, vegetable, miso...) Miscellaneous veggies Eggs and whatever seasonings you like Put everything together in the pot EXCEPT the egg. Bring to a very low simmer(Do not boil) Simmer till your veggies are to your liking To add the egg:  Crack the egg in to a small ramekin, then be sure the broth is at a low simmer with almost no movement.  Slowly lower the ramekin into the broth (you may need to move some veggies aside) and carefully slide the egg into the broth.  Gently poach the egg in the broth the way you like it.  I like my yoke a bit runny.  When you eat it this way the yoke will break into the broth making it very tasty and creamy.
