I usually call it Chicken Paprikash but it has no sour cream in it. It’s an old family recipe and my grandmother told me in the part of Hungary her parents were from they didn’t use sour cream. She also served it on the bone so eating was a bit of work but worth the trouble.

Summary: Delicious Chicken and prosciutto dish that means Jump-in-the-mouth
Nothing beat homemade tortilla chips and they only take about 10 minutes to cook.
I recently started watching the cooking shows and it seems most want you to salt your water to taste like the sea; stating if you water tastes like nothing, your pasta will taste like nothing. I’m sure you don’t have to be from Long Island to know that when you get a mouthful of sea water you spit it out. So, I don’t want my pasta to taste like something I will spit out.

I decided to enter the local Maryland chili competition, Mason-Dixon Chili Pod / CASI, which is part of the CASI (Chili Appreciation Society International). It was a worthy cause as well a challenge, as all proceeds were donated to charity.

Chili powder is basically Roasted dried peppers, cumin, garlic and oregano. I also use it for Carne Asada and salsa.
Recipe:I use whole cumin seeds and toast them a little in a pan, then grind them. I used a dedicated burr or blade-type coffee grinder at home, but employ a mortar and pestle when in competition.
1 tbsp ground cumin seeds
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp oregano
Actually I start with that and adjust to taste. Stay tuned for more specifics on how much exactly to add. I am experimenting with using a lot less cumin in the base powder and adding fresh ground towards the last half hour to give it that magical taste and avoid the bitterness.
