Butternut Squash Soup
1 butternut squash

3TBS. Whole wheat flour

1/2 C extra Sharp cheddar cheese (or whatever kind you like)
Peel and cut butternut squash into cubes. Roast in 375 degree oven for 35-40 minutes. (ROAST: put on sheet pan. Drizzle with Olive oil, salt, pepper, pinch of nutmeg) After roasting, mash with potato masher. Saute onion and garlic. Melt butter in different pan, add in flour, mix. Add milk and pinch of nutmeg. Add salt and pepper to taste( I like a lot of pepper) After sauce thickens a bit-add mashed up butternut squash. Let simmer for a few minutes. Put in blender or use emulsion blender to mix. Enjoy!
Southwest Chicken Soup
Preheat oven to 400.
3-4 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cubed
3-4 yams, peeled and cubed
5 Tbsp red wine vinegar
3 Tbsp dried oregano
2 Tbsp chili powder
2 Tbsp cayenne pepper (I usually do 2 tsp. because people don't like spicy at my house)
2 cans (small) Salsa Casera, Ranchero or Picante sauce
1 can tomato sauce
4 cartons chicken broth
Bring these ingredients to a boil while you prepare the rest of the ingredients
4 chicken breasts, season with lemon juice and a lot of Johnny's Seasoning salt (3-4 Tbsp). Bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes on a baking stone. If don't have a stone, you can saute in a pan before the next step. Cut into bite-sized pieces.
1 large onion, peeled and chopped fine
2 red bell peppers, diced
Saute in 2 Tbsp olive oil on high heat until they are flecked with a little bit of black.
Add chicken, sauteed onions and bell peppers to soup.
1 large bunch of cilantro, chopped fin
1 Large can of Mexican hominy
Add to soup and simmer for 30-45 minutes.
Serve with cheese on the bottom, then soup, sour cream, squeezed lime, and tortilla chips.
2 1/2 cups of lukewarm water
5 tbsp oil
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
2 tbsp yeast
6 cups flour
Dissolve sugar, salt, oil and water in a big bowl. Once it's completely dissolved add the yeast and stir. Add 3 cups of flour and keep stirring until is completely incorporated. Stir in the remaining flour and beat for about 5 minutes. Cover the dough and leave it rise in a warm place. After 10-15 minutes take a knife and insert it into the dough 3 or 4 times. Cover the dough once again and let it rise other 10-15 minutes and insert the knife 3 to 4 times. Cover the dough one more time and let it rise 10-15 minutes more. Take half of the dough and make a loaf with it and put it on greased cookie sheet, make small cuts on top to make it look pretty :D make the same with the other half and cover them and let them rise for 15 minutes more. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 375F. Finally bake for about 22 minutes or until golden brown.
You may need more flour, the dough is supposed to be smooth and not sticky.
