Buffalo Chicken Dip

Ingredients: 4 - Boneless skinless chicken breast halves, about 2 lbs, boiled and shredded with 2 forks (I do mine in the crock pot and then I have homemade chicken broth for other cooking uses; the meat shreds to beautifully, too) 1 - 12 oz bottle of Frank's Hot Sauce (try not to substitute....but whatever you do, do NOT use Tabasco!) 2 - 8 oz packages cream cheese softened 1 - 16 oz bottle Ranch dressing 1/2 cup chopped celery 8 ozs shredded sharp cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack cheese of combo thereof. Method: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a 13x9x2 inch baking pan, combine the cooked, shredded chicken meat with the entire bottle of Frank's, spreading to form an even layer. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine cream cheese and entire bottle of Ranch dressing, stirring till hot and smooth. Pour this mixture evenly over chicken mixture. Sprinkle with chopped celery. Bake covered for 20 minutes. Then add the shredded cheese and bake uncovered for another 20 minutes or till bubbly -- do not over bake or the cheese topping with get browned and hardened! Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Serve with celery pieces (cut the celery cross-wise, not want the dip to get scooped into the celery pieces) or with any sturdy dipping chip like Tostito Golds or Saltines.

Chipsi Mayai (Fries with Eggs)

Another Tanzanian Favourite - you can get this dish in restaurants and on street stops... Amazing with coke (for breakfast). Egg to Potato ratio should be 2:1 Take 2 potatoes and cut them into wedges. Fry them in oil. When they are closer to done, scramble 4 eggs and add whatever spices you want (i.e. salt, chilli powder, black pepper, curry powder, etc.). Put butter in a frying pan and put half of the egg mixture to cover the bottom of the pan. Put potato wedges on top of the egg mixture. Once the bottom egg mixture is set, pour the balance of the egg mixture on top of the potato wedges and sprinkle with red chilli peppers or powder. Put the frying pan into the oven (warmed at 375 degrees) for the top layer to cook. Enjoy...
