Read 'Em & Eat-Package Deal

I’ve always liked dinner and a movie whether it’s on a date or the TV show.  You Tube’s, Cinema Sins, has added their take on the dinner/show by featuring professional chefs and their dishes inspired by a particular movie.  The chef talks about his favorite movie scene while the host and editing staff of Cinema Sins enjoy a delicious repast.  I’m always fascinated how one creative pursuit inspires another, so with that in mind, Read ‘Em & Eat posts will profile a delicious title flanked by a tasty accompaniment.

Package Deal was inspired by Reno’s Salsa scene.  While being one of my favorite dances, it is also the key ingredient in one of my go-to recipes.

Salsa Chicken (Can also use leftover Beef, Pork…Turkey you get the idea).
Cut leftover cooked chicken into smaller pieces and place into medium sauce pan.
Season with chili powder, salt and pepper.
Cover chicken with salsa and cook on medium heat stirring and adding salsa as needed.  When the chicken shreds, it’s ready to be used for tacos, quesadillas, nachos or even on top of a salad if you’re feeling virtuous. Even better this dish cooks up quickly, leaving you more time for reading (or dancing).

Package Deal-1st title in Rhythm & Romance series.

Widowed attorney, Liz Grant, buries her grief in a deluge of paperwork.  On whim she takes a free dance lesson at the club Eclipse where the mojitos are cold and the Salsa is hot.  She falls for Salsa’s spicy rhythms and Patrick Cavanaugh’s sexy grin.  But can Liz handle the dramatic change of tempo in her well-ordered life?
