Desert Dutch Oven Diva's~Sisters on the Fly

This is me with my cowgirl apron on watching over my dutch oven.
In the background is my friend Cat's ~ The Vintage Housewife PINK trailer!
Yes, she is a Sister to! Oh, what fun she is! This passed weekend I went to a Sisters on the Fly outing held in the desert of Quartzsite, AZ. It was the 4th annual "Desert Dutch Oven Diva's" outing, sponsored by the AZ Sisters. This one is a Sister/Mister outing, so our hubby's got to come! What a wonderful time we had, showing off our trailers, eating, singing around the fire (my hubby played his banjo & guitar!), eating, gabbing, shopping, dutch oven cooking and more eating! I entered in the dutch oven cook off and won a 3rd. place ribbon for my White Chili! Boy, was I excited! Several of us caravan together coming & going. It is always so fun to see peoples faces as they see us coming down the highway in our little vintage trailers!
I love my Sisters on the Fly, Sisters! Watching over my dutch oven. Notice my PINK cowgirl boots?My prize winning White Chili.
Thanks daughter Shelli for the recipe! Yummy!
The sourdough rolls are Molly's! So good!
Love this saying that is on the side of my little 1957 trailer!
This weekend I was a cowgirl! Heehaw!
I will post my trailer pictures soon! xox
Recipe requested, so here goes...
White Chicken Chili
by my Daughter Shelli
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 med. yellow onion, chopped
3 teaspoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 cans - 15 1/2 oz. Great Northern Beans, rinsed & drained
2 cans - 14 1/2 oz. chicken broth
3 cans - 4 oz. chopped green chilies
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teapoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups (16 oz.) sour cream
1 cup (1/2 pint) whipping cream
*Topping - Fritoes & shredded cheese
In a saucepan, saute chicken, onion & garlic powder in oil until cooked. Add beans, broth, chilies & seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat & simmer uncovered for 30 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove from heat & stir in sour cream and whipping cream. Let stand for 10 minutes for sause to thicken. Serve immediatley.
In a large saucepan, saute chicken, onion & garlic powder in oil until cooked. Put chicken into a crockpot & add all other ingredredients EXCEPT sour cream and whipping cream. Heat then add sour cream & whipping cream. Turn on "warm" for hours.
***Dutch Oven
Same as above but heat on coals or an open fire. Bring to a boil. Take dutch oven off coals and add sour cream & whipping cream. Let stand 10 mintues before serving. I used 7 coals on bottom and 17 coals on top for about 1/2 hour and stirred a couple times.
Don't forget the Fritoes & shredded cheese! Yum!

Debbie said...

Okay, add me as a new fan. I loved reading your blog it is nice to find another sister out there. Seems to be a few of us that are blogging. I really loved your dutch oven cooking posts. I taught an Elders Quorum combined activity group about dutch oven cooking, it was a blast. And the food was outstanding especially the sourdough scones. Yum. I look forward to coming back. Deb

BECKY said...

Hi there, and thanks so much for stopping by my blog and your sweet comment!!

OK...I just have to say I saw an Rv show with a group of ladies with trailers like yours who went on weekend outings together. Is that you or are there other groups? I thought it was just the coolest idea, and I absolutely loved what everyone had done with their trailers!!! I would love to be a part of something like this!
Congrats on your 3rd place! Sounds yummy!

The tea party is enchanting!!
Joyful blessings be yours,

Shirl said...

HI Maryjane, what a cut pic of you in your apron and pink boots! Your recipe sounds yummy. I'll have to give that a try. Your granddaughter's teaparty was just too cute!

Claudie said...

Oh Maryjane
Ever since I've met you, I have told my girlfriend Karen, who lives in my home town, that I was going to join you gals when you get a hotel near by one day.
My hubby fly fishes and... well...I think I would leave him behind so I could go crazy with all of you!!!
We used to live in Scottsdale. Far cry from Ont. Canada...brrrrr.
Love your boots.

Hello Maryjane, I wanted to thank you for dropping by my blog. How lovely to see your comment there. I was delighted when I checked out your blog, what great pictures, love the easy way you write, and you add a bit of fun to an other wise dreary-weather day! I will be sure to check back again and see what you might be up to. LOVE your vintage trailor and your friend's PINK one. I would love to have one in that color. We own a campground and see alot of trailors coming thru, but nothing as sweet as those two!! Thanks for sharing. - Deborah

Maryjane, thanks so much for the comment on my blog. As a newbie I really appreciate it. I remember going camping in Texas with my grandparents in a trailor like that. The top bunk was so close to the ceiling you had to lay flat to get in a you could not turn over. But, there was enough room for my sister and me. We laid there listening to the crickets. Beautiful blog!

Sunday Girl said...

Hi Maryjane,
I came for a visit to your blog after the comment you left on mine, and OMG you have a most beautiful blog over here. I am so glad to find it. I will be spending some time reading in the next few days.

The writer of thebeehivecottage.blogspot.com has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: time does not exist it lies only in the imagination of man I will be back.

Interesting post as for me. I'd like to read something more about that matter. Thank you for giving that info.
