DNA for Leonidas!

So the report is in!
Leonidas is half purebred Boxer, mixed with Icelandic Sheepdog and a small amount of Miniature Bull Terrier. Sure glad he's mostly Boxer, that's what must make him such a great pup!

Frito Pie

We took a drive up to Taos, NM and stopped at a great little joint called Orlandos. I was really craving beans and decided to get the frito pie with chicken and green chili, yum! Once we got home I decided I'd give it a try.... here's my recipe for frito pie with green chili and chicken. Enjoy!

Frito Pie

  • 1 lb chicken, chopped
  • 1/4 C. onion, diced
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic, diced
  • 2 Tbls. olive oil
  • 13 oz. Bueno chopped green chili **
  • 15 oz. can of beans (I like black but you can use pinto)
  • Lettuce, chopped
  • 1-2 tomatoes, chopped
  • Cheddar, grated
  • Fritos Corn Chips
** If you don't have Bueno green chili in your area, you can roast and chop your own green chili. Please visit the following website for roasting your own chili: How to Roast Green Chilies.

  1. Cook chicken in olive oil with onion and garlic. Once chicken is mostly cooked, add green chili.
  2. Warm can of beans.
  3. Place beans onto plate, top with chicken green chili mixture, cheese, lettuce, tomato and frito chips. Serve with warmed flour tortillas.

Finish off dinner with some yummy Trader Joe cookies!!!
