Recipe Updates to a few classics...

So, there's already a post with my recipe for General Tso's Chicken and Tamale Pie...

I made those last week as well, but this time I changed a few things and I really liked it...

For the General Tso's Chicken... I added about a cup of broccoli, chopped and sauteed this with the onions and green pepper, and red pepper flakes. Then I took the veggies out while I cooked the Chicken. I feel like the broccoli was a GREAT addition and taking the veggies out made them taste more crisp so it was awesome!!!!! Try it :-)

For the Tamale Pie, I added a 1 tsp of cumin, and a handful of cilantro into the recipe... the cumin at the same time as the chili powder and the cilantro at the same time as the corn, kidney beans, etc... I think it made it even better.

Enjoy!
