This is my Nana's recipe, taught to me when I was little. She used Rotel tomatoes, but I can't take the spicyness. So, I updated her recipe, and later learned that I could "steam" chicken breast strips, (at the end of Step 1) and make a complete one-skillet meal for the family. I actually make this when we're camping, and everyone around wants a plate of it. It has become a favorite comfort food.

How To Make nana's fried cabbage

  • 1
    In a large (12" or larger) skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat and add onions, then the cabbage. Lightly salt and then cover the skillet.
  • 2
    Allow the cabbage to "sweat and wilt" - the onions will be clear, and the cabbage will be translucent when done. You may want to stir gently with a wooden spatula to keep either cabbage or onions from sticking.

    Add Pace Picante sauce - your choice of "heat" - mild, medium or hot. When thoroughly heated, turn off heat, sprinkle cheese over top of the mixture and cover again until cheese is melted. Serve.
