    Appetizer: Chips and salsa

    Main dish:

    Arroz Con Pollo

    1 tsp. vegetable oil

    6 small chicken thighs, skin and fat removed (1 1/2 lb.)

    Ground black pepper


    1 medium onion, finely chopped

    1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces

    1 1/2 cups long grain white rice

    1 garlic clove, minced

    1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

    14 1/2 oz. chicken broth

    1 1/4 cups water

    10 oz. peas

    In a nonstick 12" skillet, warm oil over med heat until hot. Add chicken and sprinkle with black pepper and salt. Add onion and green pepper to skillet. Saute, turning chicken once and stirring vegetable mixture occasionally, until chicken is browned and vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.

    Authentic Flan

    1/2 cup sugar

    1 cup milk

    3 large egg yolks

    1 tsp. vanilla extract

    14 oz. sweetened condensed milk

    3 large eggs

    1/2 tsp. almond extract

    In a small saucepan melt sugar over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is a dark, caramel-colored liquid. Remove from heat and pour into 8 individual molds. Quickly turn mold to coat bottom and sides with the caramel. Let cool so caramel hardens. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Put the condensed milk, milk, eggs, egg yolks and flavorings into an electric blender. Cover and blend to mix well. Pour mixture into mold; put mold in a larger pan filled with water to depth of ½ inch. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and remove mold from water. Cool and then refrigerate up to 2 days. Cover mold with an inverted serving platter. Hold mold and platter together and turn them over. Lift off mold. Caramel will fall as a liquid sauce over the custard.

    A nice easy main dish is paella. I like Rachael Ray's recipe which is funny because I usually don't like her stuff.

    An easy appetizer is sliced serrano ham, roasted red peppers, and olives.

    For dessert you should make flan. An egg custard.
