We are so excited about our comprehensive, fun learning course about chiles, registration will now be available today for each of you, the official online registration starting September 1. Here's the link
https://www.janebutelcooking.com//CookingSchool/OnlineCookingClasses/index.cfm? (If for any reason you are having trouble registering, please call me at 505-243-2622 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.) The course offers everything you need to know, plus lots of good to know information that I bet you never would have thought of, plus many exciting tips, health benefits and over 150 kitchen tested recipes. The course lectures will guide you through making most all of the famous New Mexican and Mexican regional dishes.
Plus included in the $699.00 registration is over $100.00 of products, my best selling "Jane Butel's Southwest Kitchen", and a DVD on chili making.
In the course, there are 40 lectures, most of which include cooking. There will be forums, chat rooms, direct access to me and by the end of the course you will be creating your very own chile laden recipes. We will also grant you a diploma.
I have been told this is the most comprehensive chile course ever in the world! What a statement? The great thing about the course is, once you are registered, we will release the lectures/lessons at a timed pace. You can work on them when you have the time. Also, you will always have the ability to tune into what others are doing and how.
Chiles are so unique in their various properties--from healing to prevention of health risks to the excitement that they provide to our bodies when consumed. Did you know the only other food that possesses some of these properties is chocolate. However, chiles are much broader in their variation and medical assistance.
I look forward to hearing from many of you. The registration will be live starting September i.
We will take the first 20 who apply and then start the course on September 15. We will be running it for approximately 2 months--allowing for you to have time to cook the recipes that are featured. By the end of the course, you will be preparing your very own recipes and you will receive a diploma. I look forward to your joining us!
For busy warm evenings, here's a favorite main dish salad--
CHICKEN RICE SALAD WITH JALAPENO LIME CREAM DRESSING
Here green chiles supply the capsaicin or spiciness. Green chiles are merely unripe red chiles and possess the same measure of capsaicin as though they were red, ripe chiles. This quick to make main dish salad, complements of convenience or deli ingredients, is a quick and healthy, spicy entrée for lunch or dinner.
Yield: 4 servings
1 6-ounce package southwestern-flavored rice mix
¼ pound boneless, skinless deli chicken, diced
1 4-ounce can diced green chiles
¼ cup jalapeno Lime Cream Dressing
Optional garnishes: ¼ cup ripe olives, sliced; 1 head of red or green leaf lettuce, rinsed and torn into bite-size pieces
1. Cook the rice according to package directions. Set aside to cool.
2. Place the chicken, chiles, pepper, and rice in a large bowl and toss with the salad dressing. Add the olives, if desired. To serve, divide the salad among 4 plates, on top of the lettuce, if using.
