PICADILLO
Here's a recipe for you taken from the 'Best of the Best from Texas' cookbook. I'm a Texan currently living in Belgium and I have cooked this several times for Belgians . They loved it. The food here is very bland here, so they loved the wonderful flavor in this and all wanted the recipe as well as other Tex-Mex ones. This is really good!!! I sometimes add a little ground cloves and cinnamon.

Basque Sheepherders' Bread
3 cups hot tap water
1/2 cup oil (she uses olive oil)
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp. salt
2 packages active dry yeast
9-9 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, unsifted

In a large bowl combine hot water, oil, sugar, and salt.  Stir until mixed.  Let cool to about 110 degrees.  Stir in yeast, cover, and set in a warm place until bubbly. (about 15 minutes)
Beat in about 5 cups of the flour to make a thick batter.  Stir in enough of the remaining flour (about 3 1/2 cups) to make a stiff dough.  Turn out onto a floured board.  Knead until smooth and satiny (10-20 minutes) adding flour as needed to prevent sticking.  Turn dough over in a greased bowl, cover, and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled. (about 1 1/2 hours)
Punch dough down and knead on a floured board to form a smooth ball.  With a circle of foil, cover the bottom of Dutch oven.  Grease foil, inside of Dutch oven, and lid with oil or spray. 
Place dough in the Dutch oven and cover with lid.  Let rise in a warm place until dough pushes up lid about 1/2 inch. (about 1 hour--watch closely)
Bake covered with lid in a 375 degree oven for 12 minutes.  Remove lid and bake for another 30-35 minutes or until loaf is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.  Remove from oven and turn loaf out onto a rack to cool.  (Dutch oven and loaf are heavy and hot so help is recommended)  Peel off foil.  Makes one large loaf.

Most Basque sheepherders baked their bread in a pit with coals from a campfire using a Dutch oven with a recessed lid.  For the above recipe Claire uses a #8 Dutch oven.  She says this is a little small as she needs to take a portion off and bake separately in a bread pan.  Her original recipe called for a 10 inch cast iron Dutch oven, 5 quart size.
Green Chile
The following instructions for roasting and freezing green chile are adapted from information provided by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture.
Choose chile that is bright green, smooth, symmetrical, heavy for its size, mature, and crisp.  Wear rubber gloves when handling chiles to protect hands and provide adequate ventilation while roasting or peeling.

Blistering
Roasting or blistering the chile will remove the tough outer skin which can then be removed before or after freezing.  Removal of the skin is easier after freezing.

Oven or broiler method
Place chiles in a hot oven or broiler at 400 degrees F. for 6-8 minutes or until skin blisters away from the flesh of the chile.
Range-top Method
Cover gas or electric burner with a layer of heavy wire mesh and place chiles on hot mesh.  Remove chiles once the skin is blistered.
Outdoor-Grill Method
Place chiles on gas or charcoal grill, about 5-6 inches above heat source.  Remove chiles once skin is blistered.

Chill chiles immediately after blistering to ensure food safety.  Freeze unpeeled chiles in plastic freezer bags, aluminum foil, freezer containers, or freezer wrap.  Freeze immediately and store at 0 degrees or below.

To peel chiles after removing from freezer, you can peel either frozen or partially thawed, under running water.  Remove seeds and veins at the same time.  Remember to wear rubber gloves.

Melody Garaventa

Not an old chuck wagon type of recipe, but people always love it and it's so simple.
 
Take a bag of chocolate chip cookies. CHIPS AHOY works great, 1 bottle of Baileys Irish Cream and a tub of cool whip.    Layer the cookies in a dish, pour over the Baileys Irish Cream to moisten them then put on a layer of cool whip.
Sipping on the Baileys Irish Cream during the assembly is allowed...:)
Keep layering like this until it fills the bowl.   Let is chill for a few hours letting the flavors blend. This is always a hit at our dinners.   Also, you can use non alcoholic Baileys if you like. If you want to get "fancy" you can do it in parfait glasses.
 
Thanks, I really enjoyed Chuck Wagon Cooking!

Vickie Buchannan

Lemon Marmalade
3 lbs lemons
8-10 cups sugar
Slice lemons as thin as possible.  Discard ends.  Remove all seeds and tie them in a square of doubled cheesecloth.  Put lemons and seed bag in a non-reactive bowl with enough water to cover.  Let stand overnight.
Measure lemons and water into a wide shallow non-reactive pan.  Add an equal volume of sugar and cook over low heat until sugar is dissolved.  Raise heat to medium-high and cook, stirring frequently and skimming off foam as it rises, until temperature reaches 220 degrees, about half an hour. Remove from heat.  ( To test for consistency by dropping a little marmalade on a saucer and put saucer into the freezer until cold, about 5 minutes.  Tip saucer, marmalade should just barely run.  If too thin return marmalade to medium heat and cook testing often until it reaches correct consistency.)
Put marmalade into hot sterile pint or half-pint jars.  Store in refrigerator up to one month or for longer storage, seal according to reliable canning instructions.  Makes about 6 pints.
