What Will You Need

Bag of Potatoes O’Brien

2 Peppers.  A green one and a red one. Three if you want a yellow one.

About an inch of Chorizo .

Some Cheddar Cheese

Some Mozzarella Cheese

McCormick “Perfect Pinch” Garlic and Herb

Olive Oil Spray (yes, spray)

How to Cook This Stuff

Grab a frying pan.  The bigger the pan, the bigger the servings.  I use the trusty ten incher.

Spray the pan with olive oil.  About three circles will due.

Throw pan on stove and fire it up on high.

Sprinkle in the spuds.  Try for an even layer but you can cheat a little. Make sure you have spuds from edge to edge.

Add a tablespoon of butter if you like being fat.

Add a tablespoon or so of Choritzo.  Drop in little pinches of it after you squeezed an inch off the roll. If Choritzo is not your thing, feel free to use another sausage, ham or BACON.

Grab the Garlic and Herb stuff and shake it on the spuds.  A good light layer over the whole pan should do.

Stir and flip everything until the spuds are brown. Spread everything back out.

Toss in the chopped peppers.  About two hand fulls.

Reduce heat and sprinkle shredded cheese.  I use the block cheese and grate it directly into the pan because it’s fun and makes me think I’m on the Cooking Channel.  If you’re lazy, buy shredded cheese.

Simmer the whole shebang until the cheese is melted.

Scoop out with a spatula and serve.

You Gonna Eat That?

My daughter is directing my diet. Steering me away from the meat aisle and into the fruits and veggies. Apparently she wants me to live.
It got me to think about the Ultimate junk foods. When people try to comment on my vices I usually counter attack. One of my favorites is:

THE CHOCOLATE COVERED BUTTER BARS

Unwrap sticks of 100% real butter.

Coat sticks in Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup.

COCA COLA CAKE!!!

Ingredients

1 package plain white cake mix
4 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
8 Tablespoons (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
1 cup coca cola
½ cup buttermilk (Or substitute 1/2 C whole milk with a T of lemon juice stirred in)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 ½ cups of marshmallows
Icing:
8 Tablespoons (1 stick) butter or margarine
4 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 Cup coca cola
4 Cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1 Cup chopped pecans (I left these out because my kids prefer this cake with no nuts, but pecans are GREAT in this!)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly mist a 13×9-inch baking pan with vegetable oil spray. Set the pan aside.
Place the cake mix, cocoa powder, melted butter, cola, buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides with a spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2 minutes.
The batter should be well blended. Fold in the marshmallows. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Place the pan it the oven.
Bake the cake until it springs back when lightly pressed with your finger and just starts to pull away from the sides of the pan, 40 to 42 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, prepare frosting while cake is still hot.
Place the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. As the butter melts, stir in the cocoa powder and cola. Let the mixture come to just a boil, stirring constantly, and then remove it from the heat. Stir in the confectioners’ sugar until the frosting is thick and smooth. Fold in the pecans.
Pour the frosting over the top of the cake, spreading it out with a rubber spatula so that it reaches the edges of the cake. Cool the cake for 20 minutes before serving.

Serve.
