    Chicken Tortilla Soup

    It's hard to believe a soup with this much flavor simmers for only 20 minutes. And making the crisp tortilla strips for the topping is a great way to use up any extra corn tortillas you have on hand.

    Chinese Chicken Salad

    Author Mary Ostyn's version of this popular ramen noodle-and-chicken salad calls for chopped peanuts instead of more pricey almonds that are often called for in Asian chicken salads.

    Mexican Bow-tie Pasta with Chicken

    You can use any shape of pasta you have on hand for this creamy pasta recipe. All you need to give it Mexican flavor is a jar of salsa, and the creaminess comes from a block of cream cheese.

    Chocolate adds a deep, rich accent rather than sweetness to this tomato sauce and gives it a more authentic Mexican flavor.

    West African Peanut Chicken

    Combine peanut sauce, tomato, onion, pepper, garlic and chicken pieces for a dish with authentic African flavors. To keep the peanut sauce from being too sweet, use a natural peanut butter. Serve over rice for a complete one-dish meal.

    Chicken-Mint Couscous with Raisins and Apricots

    This Moroccan-style one-dish meal gets its mint flavor from cooking the couscous in mint-flavored tea instead of adding fresh mint. But if you're not a fan of mint, just cook the couscous in water without the tea bags.
