Post Recipes!
So I actually really enjoy cooking, and I want to start getting together recipes to try!
So if y'all have some cool fun funky recipes from your mom or grandma or self or dog then please share!

I'll start by sharing a really simple recipe for homemade I've made several times that I got from my dad:

Ingredients:
8-9 roma tomatoes
2 green peppers
1 red pepper
1 white onion
1 jalepeño
1 lemon
1 lime
Lemon pepper seasoning

Dice all of the veggies as small as possible (or not, its your life), mix with a large spoon. Squeeze the juice from the lemon and the lime over the veggies and put some lemon pepper seasoning on it, cover the bowl and shake until mixed thoroughly (or whatever)

I like it because I use it for omelettes and junk too because tomatoes and onions rock \m/

Edit: It also tastes really good over fish!

These are some of my own recipes, or rather adaptions of things that already exist. For instance every little hispanic grandmother knows how to cook picadillo and every home has their version of it, but this is my version of it.

Chicharrones de Pollo (Miami Style Fried Chicken Strips)
Image

What You Will Need:
6 Cloves Mashed Garlic
1 Chopped Onion
1 Cup Lime Juice
1/2 Cup Light Rum
1-2 Chicken Breasts
Plastic Wrap
Salt
Pepper
Cumin
Oregano
Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Flower
2 Teaspoons Salt
2 Teaspoons Black Pepper
1 Egg
2 Tablespoons Water
1 Serving White Rice

Instructions:
Slice chicken breasts into strips (or cubes) and place into shallow pan or bowl. Make marinade using garlic, onion, lime juice and rum. Pour marinade over chicken and make sure each piece is well coated. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for two to three hours. Once time has passed take chicken out of refrigerator and cover the top layer of chicken with salt, pepper, cumin, and oregano by eye. Leave chicken in marinade and begin heating a deep skillet with enough oil to cover at least half of the chicken strips.
As the pan heats start one serving of white rice. Then make an egg wash in a separate bowl using a beaten egg and water. In another bowl or shallow pan mix the flower, salt, and pepper together and set aside. Now take the chicken strips out of the marinade and be sure to let access marinade drip off. Dunk chicken into egg wash, being sure to cover completely. Allow excess to drip off and begin covering the chicken in a layer of flower. Repeat until all pieces have been dipped and coated. Then dust each piece of chicken with more salt, pepper, cumin, and oregano. Then place chicken in heated oil and fry, making sure to turn over occasionally to get an even fry. Be sure to fry in small batches so that heat in skillet or pan does not decrease dramatically. Serve on plate with rice and any other desired side dishes (plantain chips highly suggested).

Picadillo Criollo (There isn't really an American thing to compare this to)
Image

What You Will Need:
2 Cloves Minced Garlic
1/2 Chopped Green Pepper
1 Small Diced Onion
6 Chopped Cherry Tomatoes
1 Handful Raisins
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 1/2 to 2 Pounds Ground Beef
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Cumin
1/4 Cup Dry Red Wine
1 Serving White Rice

Instructions:
Pour olive oil into skillet and put at medium heat. Make a sofrito (base) by mixing minced garlic, chopped green pepper and diced onion together and sautéing in pan until golden. Then add chopped tomatoes and raisins into the mix and turn down to a simmer. As it simmers begin making the white rice. Simmer the sofrito for three minutes and then add ground beef, pepper, salt, cumin, and olive oil (if necessary). Turn heat up to medium high and mix beef into the sofrito, stirring consistently. As beef browns add the wine and reduce to simmer for ten minutes. Serve with white rice and tostones.

Tostones (again, nothing American to compare it to, sorry)
Image

What You Will Need:
2 Large Green Plantains (they HAVE to be green, or it doesn't come out right)
Vegetable Oil (or Coconut Oil for a healthier alternative)
Salt
Powdered Sugar (optional)

Instructions:
Start a skillet heating at medium heat with enough oil to be about half an inch thick. Peel the plantains (there is a very specific way to peel a plantain, you cut off the top and bottom ends and then slide the knife along one of the raised lines on the back of the plantain, then peel apart. If this is confusing there is probably a video on YouTube) and then slice them into pieces one inch in length. When the oil is hot place the pieces of plantain into the skillet in small batches. Check the plantains every thirty seconds until the side submerged in oil is lightly golden, then flip and fry opposite side until the plantain pieces have a uniformed golden color. Remove from oil and smash with a tostonera (if you do not have tostonera you can use the flat side of a small bowl of the flat side of a large knife or a drinking glass). The smashed plantain pieces should be between a quarter inch to a half inch thick. Once all pieces have been fried and smashed raise the heat to medium high and place smashed plantains back into skillet. Allow them to fry until golden brown, checking on them every thirty seconds to every minute. When they have finished frying remove them from oil and place on paper towel and salt. For a sweet and salty taste, put some powdered sugar on each piece.
For a real treat serve with a side of garlic aioli.

Allioli (Garlic Sauce)
Image

What You Will Need:
7 Cloves Chopped Garlic (honestly 6 could be fine, depends on how much kick you want. I go for 7 because I like kick)
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Oregano
2 Egg Yolks
2/3 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (preferably from Spain, such as Venta Del Barón)

Instructions:
Place the garlic, salt, and oregano into a mortar and pound to a paste. Alternatively, use a food processor. But using the mortar gives better texture and more aroma. Then add lemon juice and egg yolks and continue pounding and mixing. If using a food processor, simply blend them together. Then slowly pour the olive oil in, taking your time to work the oil into the paste. It should take approximately five minutes to work in the oil. If using a food processor, simply poor in and mix in increments. When fully mixed and smooth, cover and place in refrigerator to chill.

Allioli is good stuff, especially on a cheese burger. I want to try your Chicharrones de Pollo.

Chicharrones de Pollo is fantastic. This is a dorm friendly version of the full recipe if you'd like me to find it. I forget what I changed.
I ended up having tostones tonight with dinner, so I took pictures and will post them with instructions.
