Okay another great recipe from the Disney cookbook! And this time it’s homemade tortillas! I also made fajitas for a side! The fajitas were made from my heart! Recipe down below ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Tortilla Recipe ⤵️

Follow the instruction exactly in the book, mine didn’t come to 12 balls it came out to be 8 tortillas.

You can follow the exact method of making these tortillas! This came out to be around 8 tortillas for me, also if you want you can add a tad bit of olive oil to the tortillas while frying so they can be a little crispy.

Here is the process of me making the tortillas

 

 

Fajitas

Now on to Fajitas!

INGREDIENTS

Half onion

Red bell pepper (no specific measurements add to your liking)

Shishito peppers 🌶 (add how much you like)

Garlic clove (2-3 cloves)

Chicken breasts (cubed)

Salt (to taste)

Pepper (to taste)

Paprika (to your liking)

Olive oil (add half a cup)

Half a lemon (to juice)

Onion flakes (to your liking)

Chilli powder (to your liking)

Cumin (to your liking)

•Mix everything in a bowl•

•Add to a big plastic bag to marinate the chicken for about 30 minutes in plastic bag in fridge after mixing all ingredients

Then add everything to a dutch oven or whatever you have and cook on the stove until everything is cooked!

**You can also add more olive oil to cook, once everything is ready, you can shred the chicken in the pot.**

To make simple guac like I did, used ripe avocados, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. This is the lazy way to make guacamole!

Split Pea Soup

Hi everyone! So recently I have been getting into this new cool Disney Cookbook that my husband has found at our local thrift store here in Canada that we call Value Village. The first ever recipe that I made in this book is called Split Pea Soup.

It is soooo easy to make because instead of waiting for hours to make on the stove, I made this all in the instant pot for just 30 minutes on high pressure!

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

On Saute mode in the instant pot, saute onions, carrots, and garlic with the amount of olive oil. As the recipe recalls, make sure that the onions are translucent before you put split peas into the pot. I used a mixture of split peas and lentils. By the way, the carrots do not have to be perfect because once cooking they will mix with the split peas and I mashed them with the potato masher.

Here is my pot full of the ingredients.

Once everything is ready and you can see that the onions are translucent, add in the split peas, mix, and add the dill, salt, pepper, water and broth into the pot. (I added dried dill as I always have it in hand). Then add on for high pressure for 30 minutes with the sealing mode on.

This is when everything was settled and the pressure was set to 30 minutes.

Once soup is ready, switch the mode to venting until all the pressure is out.

Next, take a potato masher and mash everything, by this point everything may look thick, so it’s okay to add more water to make the soup look like it’s more of a soup then a chunky mess haha! The recipe book did mention that if the soup is thick, add more water, so that’s what I did 🙂 .

The End Result!

I Hope you enjoyed this quick recipe! If you don’t have an instant pot it’s okay because you can also make this on the stove for 2-3 hours mixing every so often to make sure the soup doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

Matzo Ball Soup

ACHOOOOOO!!!!!

Has this been YOU recently and feel the cold coming? Or did you just see the title and think “OOOOO! THIS WOULD TASTE AMAZING!!” Well, your gonna be blessed today because this soup is literally amazing! So without further or do, here is my famous matzo ball soup recipe with less ingredients than I usually add, honestly you can add anything in the soup and matzo balls and it will be matzo mall soup.

Things you will need:

  • 1 Whole Chicken
  • Matzo ball mix (I used the Lipton brand in this recipe)
  • Potatoes (I used 4 regular potatoes)
  • 1 Carrot stalk
  • Salt (I used pink salt)
  • 1/2 of a Lemon
  • Lemon Pepper seasoning from TJ’s (Trader Joe’s brand)
  • Paprika
  • Cumin
  • Chili Flakes
  • Garlic powder (You can use fresh cloves if you want, powder was easier for me to add)
  • Dried Parsley
  • Dried Dill
  • Dried Herbs
  • Garlic & Herb Mrs. Dash
  • Small Chives
  • Fresh Dill and Parsley to garnish at the end

I made this soup in the instant pot so I didn’t have to remove the white fluffy fat that floats on top when you usually make boil chicken but you can make this either way. If you make this soup in the stove top, just remove the white fluff. 🙂

Just a quick tip, I usually eye out my spices so there is no specific measurement, just get creative with it!

Start of with a clean whole, medium sized chicken. If making on the stove top, add the chicken, water, all the spices and dried herbs, chives, onion (Chopped in half) , half of a lemon, diced carrots, and potatoes on medium heat. Just remember when you add water, make sure you add as much water so you can have enough soup!

The same way, add everything to the instant pot and add on soup mode or pressure cook and add for 20 minutes.

Start preparing the matzo ball mixture by following the instructions on the box!

I used Lipton in this case

If cooking with stove top, remove whit fluff until you see a clear soup broth.

Once the soup is ready (you know this when you poke a knife through the chicken and see if it boiled well enough by seeing that the knife is clear and there is no pink)

If the soup is ready, bring soup to a boil

(with instant pot press the saute button)

Then add your matzo balls. In about 15 minutes or so, your matzo balls should look light and fluffy! What I usually do is do a taste test (My favorite part!) Then I taste and see if it is good! By now when the soup is ready, I like to have a side of fresh parsley and dill in a small bowl already chopped up and add it to my soup. This soup was a total winner, it tastes so good, you will want seconds!
