Now, how about some green food? I know it doesn't look green, but
I made Chicken Chile Verde and used salsa verde which is green.
- 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, chopped
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 (14 oz.) can Hatch Green Chile Enchilada Sauce with Roasted Garlic (or use any salsa verde)
- 1 (15.5 oz.) can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
- White corn tortilla chips, toasted
- 1 cup shredded Mexican-Blend cheese
- 1 ripe tomato, chopped
Add the chicken, onion, and green bell pepper. Saute until the chicken is browned and the veggies are limp.
Add the enchilada sauce and beans; stir to mix. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover and let simmer for 30 minutes.
While this is cooking, put the tortilla chips on a cookie sheet and place them in a 200 degree oven for 10 minutes.
Spoon the chili into individual serving bowls. Top with cheese and chopped tomatoes. Tuck the tortilla chips in around the bowl.
Ten years ago I wrote a book, Happy Ways to Heal the Earth, listing many simple, everyday ways that people could help to heal and honor our Earth. You can read more about the book here, including a Carry Canvas chapter. One of the small yet very significant ways that we, as foodies, can help, is to bring our groceries home in re-usable bags.
To honor the Earth, and to help one more person honor the Earth, I'm giving away a
copy of my book and this re-usable tote bag from Whole Foods to one person who leaves a comment sharing one way that he or she helps to heal and honor the Earth. I'll announce the winner on March 28th, at 9:30 PM, after I turn my lights back on.
Carrying your groceries in a re-usable bag is one way you can help to heal and honor the Earth. There are hundreds of other ways you can help. Do one thing every day, in whatever way you can, that's green to help keep our Earth green. And turn your lights off for one hour
on March 28th at 8:30 PM to vote for Earth.
