It seems that there's more to Kristen Stewart than loving vampires and werewolves in movies, dating Robert Pattinson, and being super-awkward in public. Turns out she's a pretty good cook as well and was the go-to chef on the set of her new movie, On the Road.
She cooked a lot for everyone because she was "the only girl on set." Sexism aside, she also admitted that she has a culinary speciality:
I think I can do a really, really good, terrific tortilla soup. That was my On the Road dish.
Imagine her ladling spoonfuls of warm, delicious, home-cooked tortilla soup into RPatz's mouth as they blissfully lounge in their fluffy bed together in their cute love nest. Might be a little sloppy and spicy, but romantic nonetheless ... sort of.
So what kind of tortilla soup do you think it takes to win someone like Robert Pattinson's heart? As we all know, the key to a man's heart is through his stomach. Perhaps Kristen's slow cooker is the trick! Her nickname is K-STEW, after all.
This recipe from AllRecipes.com is so easy because all you have to do is throw all the ingredients into the Crock-Pot and let them cook all day. So, after a long day of shooting Breaking Dawn, the last chapter of the Twilight franchise, Kristen and Rob can get away from eating all that fake blood, take a load off in their trailers, and enjoy this soup that's been simmering in all its goodness for eight straight hours.
1 pound shredded, cooked chicken
1 (15-ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, mashed
1 (10-ounce) can enchilada sauce
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chile peppers
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups water
1 (14.5-ounce) can chicken broth
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 (10 ounce) package frozen corn
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
7 corn tortillas
- Place chicken, tomatoes, enchilada sauce, onion, green chiles, and garlic into a slow cooker. Pour in water and chicken broth, and season with cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, and bay leaf. Stir in corn and cilantro. Cover, and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours or on High setting for 3 to 4 hours.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Lightly brush both sides of tortillas with oil. Cut tortillas into strips, then spread on a baking sheet.
- Bake in preheated oven until crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes. To serve, sprinkle tortilla strips over soup.
When you serve this to your own Robert Pattinson, see if he doesn't whip out a ring Edward-style. Well, okay, maybe not, but it's still a great, simple, yummy recipe that will warm any man's heart. Even if that man is secretly a vampire and proceeds to throw it up when you're not looking.
