Sloppy Joes II
I only had ground chicken on hand so I used that instead. I subbed around 1/4 cup hickory/brown sugar bbq sauce for the brown sugar. So, the end result was sweeter. It was a fast and relatively healthy weekday dinner.

Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk
When I first read the recipe, it sounded like an Indian curry but the end result is definitely South American. I used 2 onions and regular coconut milk. I substituted a can of petite diced tomatoes for the fresh tomatoes. I made chicken + sauce in one pot. I sauteed the onions, garlic, ginger and peppers before adding in the chicken. After adding the coconut milk, it tasted too sweet initially. However, the parsley truly balanced out all the flavours. It was delicious on its own. I served it with the Brazilian Rice and Cuban Black Beans recipes from this site. Oh and we had plantains too. Truly marvelous meal that you can put together in an hour on a weekday. Thanks for sharing!

Cuban Black Beans I
Wow, this was absolutely delicious. I used a 15 oz can of black beans (I didn't drain it). I also left out the green bell pepper and used only 1 jalapeno pepper. I substituted italian seasoning for the oregano and smoked paprika for the regular paprika. It came out wonderful. Do not skimp on the balsamic vinegar. It adds a lovely sweet flavour. The smoked paprika gave it a nice smoky finish. I will definitely use the 2 jalapenos next time though. I recommend sauteeing all the vegetables in a little bit of oil before adding the black beans. Overall, a great recipe! It was easy and quick to put together. It went great with the Brazilian Chicken recipe from this site. I even had an anti black bean friend give it rave reviews.
