January 2014 Whole30 Day 4

I realize that I've completely forgot about the first three days of this Whole30.  Whoops. I figure a late start with blogging this Whole30 is better than a no start?  Forgiven?  Perfect.

Started the day with some eggs, steamed spinach and a half handful of raspberries.

Went on a date with this little shark and then came home to have a really delicious lunch.

Deli style tuna salad, cukes, pickled green beans and olives.

And for dinner we played around with our newest kitchen gadget; a pressure cooker; and had pork belly adobo with green beans, sizzled garlic and cumin from Well Fed 2.  I tossed in a bit of crushed red pepper flakes and it added the perfect amount of heat.

Recipe - Mexican Chicken Stew

I talked about this recipe last night and it's an easy one to throw together quickly.

1 tsp Coconut Oil
1 large onion, I used Spanish, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 - 28oz can whole tomatoes, fire roasted if you can
1.5 cup water
2 chipotle peppers, diced
1 small rotisserie chicken, skin removed and shredded
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup cilantro, washed and chopped

Melt coconut oil over medium heat, add in the onion and garlic.  Cook until the onions are translucent, about 5-7 minutes.

Add in tomatoes, water and chipotle peppers and bring to a boil.

Break the tomatoes up with the backside of a spoon.  Add in shredded chicken.

Reduce heat and simmer until the stew reaches a thicker consistency, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Stir in the cilantro at the end.  I normally use a bit more, but I adore cilantro so normally add a touch more.

If the chipotles are too spicy, or you don't have any on hand, I've made this before with 1 Tbsp chili powder and 1 tsp cumin.  You could also substitute chipotle pepper powder. It's really delicious as well.
