Before Daniel and I ever lived together I was well taken care of. Mom cleaned my room, did my laundry, laid my clothes out for me & ironed them if needed, did my grocery shopping, and best of all fed me. She’s a good, solid woman and superior mother. After having said this, you can understand why I’m still scratching my head and feeling queasy about my decision to run off and get married. Why die, I got it so good? Because I am idiot and wanted to piss off my Dad… again. Damnit.
Back to my number one love, Mom. She frequently asks Dan why he would willing/purposely chose me to be his wife… no answer on his end… but I like to think I’ve given my mom and Dan a gift. Each other. We live 2 hours away and yet she still does our laundry 1-2x a month, will drive to my Nacogdoches house and clean it (after she yells at me for being disgusting), stocks our pantry whenever she’s over, makes Daniel coffee & breakfast EVERY morning we are there, irons Dan’s grown-up clothes, buys him clothes, and feds us. I’ve given her another son, and Dan? The best fuking mother-in-law ever created. Now do you understand why I visit home so often? During the summers, I will completely move back in for months at a time. I lo0k forward to it.
Our first summer relocating back home she made the famous Gonzales-Rodriguez Chicken Shit casserole for dinner and it was the first time Dan had ever heard, seen, or eaten such a thing. His curiosity grew even more when my mom asked him to get out a bag of Doritos from the pantry. Doritos??? Chicken Shit isn’t oozing heaping loads of nutritional value but it is home cooked and damn good. After Dan raved it was the ” BEST CHICKEN SHIT HE’D EVER TASTED!”, she gave me the recipe to bring back to Nacogdoches. Yea Right. But, I will still pass on the legacy to all you.
- 1 whole chicken
- Chili Powder
- Shredded Cheese
- Can of Cream of Chicken Soup
In a large pot submerge whole chicken to slow cook all day, and flavor with salt and pepper. When you get home from work shred your now cooked chicken and set the stock aside. In same pot mix shredded chicken, a large can of cream of chicken soup, chili powder for taste and color, and leftover chicken stock to thin out the substance. Viscosity should be similar to a chunky, soupy liquid. In a large casserole dish cover bottom layer with Nacho Cheesy Doritos and then layer with soup. Repeat layers until dish is filled. Cover casserole with loads of cheese and let it melt in the oven at 350 degrees.
My mom also makes Spanish rice as a side dish and a glass of milk or water to match! Enjoy! I googled this recipe and there are a billion variations of this casserole… its only famous because of the Chicken Shit trademark! I love you Mom!
Me & my love.
