Chicken Gumbo Recipe

Chicken Gumbo Recipe
The classic creole dish featuring the obligatory holy trinity of peppers, onions, and celery. The holy trinity is the Cajun version of mirepoix. Gumbo is fantastic in that it is both light and flavorful at the same time. Be careful with the rice. As a little can go a long way. If you put in too much rice, you will end up with a rice dish (not a soup) that tastes like gumbo. I have learned this from experience. Tasting Guidelines: Taste is savory, a little spicy, and aromatic. Weight is light. Texture is soft. Good for low to moderate side effects. Best categorized as Cajun/Creole.

Chili Recipe

Chili Recipe
Texas Disclaimer: To all the Texans out there: yes, I realize that “real chili” has no beans in it. But the purpose of this recipe is to provide a friendly, well-rounded chili that everyone can enjoy. This is a family recipe passed down from my grandfather to me. I have slightly modified it to make it friendlier for chemo and lighter overall. It is a good, all-around chili. It is very versatile and can be eaten as a meal, over pasta, or even over hot dogs if you like. If you feel like your chili might be missing something, I highly recommend adding some ketchup. Tasting Guidelines: Taste is savory, peppery, and a little sweet and tangy. Weight is medium but can be balanced with vinegar and ketchup. Texture is soft and chili like. Good for people with low to moderate treatment side effects. Best categorized as classic American.
