This is a strange post. It is the one and only post that has been created out of pure necessity. It is some of the inspirations of the moment that just make the difference between eating and indulging. And indulging in 5 mins is a lot more than just indulging! Sometimes I work late. I come home and easiest thing to cook is a sandwich, but a sandwich is not really cooking. Is more like putting things together! So one day inspiration came to me. And here they are the peanut butter and chocolate sandwich and the mexican chicken dog! Two recipes 3 or 4 ingredients and 3 minutes. Get your timers ready, time flies… All the ingredients are from Trader Joe’s. You can try whatever you like. I tried many combinations but this is the best I can come up with.
1) Mexican Chicken dog
- 1 Trader’s Jose corn tortilla
- 1 Chicken sausage with sweet apple flavor
- 1 tbsp of crumbled gorgonzola style or other blue cheese
- 1 slice of light Swiss cheese
Start by putting a pan on medium heat.
Add the tortilla
top it with the blue cheese.
Cover it with the slice of the Swiss cheese.
And add a the chicken dog
Cover the pan and let the food steam in its own steam.
Once the vapor is forming droplets on the lid (1 minute later) turn of the heat.
Let it go for another 2-3 minutes depending on your pan, until the cheese is nice and bubbly.
Use a pair of tongs to give it shape while still hot. Like a taco.
You can also use some support as well. Two jars do an awesome job.
Just so it can hold the topics
Like siracha sauce. Spicy excellent compliment to the salty blue cheese and the sweet sausage. But really sky is the limit.
