Certificate of Achievement - Jo Matthews

Certificates of Achievement are presented to those swimmers who, while not being awarded the Swimmer of the Year trophy, have demonstrated outstanding performances throughout the year at national and/or international level. The ‘Certificate of Achievement’ recipients are chosen by the Executive with the assistance of the National Recorder.

The only recipient for 2015 was Jo Matthews, pictured here after being awarded her certificate at the NISCC in Taupo.

Jo was recognised for breaking 8 NZ records at 5 meets. She was New Zealand’s sole representative at the FINA World Masters in Kazan, Russia.

Jo broke short course records in 50, 100 and 200m Fly and 200m IM, and long course records in 100 and 200m Fly.

Some of the records had stood since 2007 and she reduced the 100m Fly short course record by over six seconds in one swim.

Our congratulations and thanks to Jo.

Recipe of the Month - High Protein Low Carb Mexican Stuffed Peppers


Ingredients

For the Seasoning

1 1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons granulated garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground saffron
1/2–1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, optional

For the Peppers
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeƱo or serrano 
chili pepper, seeded 
and chopped
2 pounds lean (90/10) ground chicken 
or turkey
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added, 
fire-roasted diced tomatoes, with juices
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
4 medium bell peppers
Lime wedges

Directions
Prepare seasoning. In a small dry skillet on medium-low, toast cumin seeds for 1–2 minutes, until fragrant, shaking skillet occasionally. Remove from heat; cool 2 minutes. Transfer seeds to a spice grinder; grind to a powder. Transfer cumin to a small bowl, and stir in remaining seasoning ingredients.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add onion, garlic and chili pepper; cook 2 minutes while stirring. Add chicken; cook until no longer pink. Sprinkle with seasoning mixture; stir well. Stir in tomatoes, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, then simmer, uncovered, 5–7 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Stir in 1/4 cup cilantro.

Meanwhile, cut 
bell peppers in half vertically (from stems to bottoms). Remove and discard stems, seeds and membranes. In a large pot, blanch peppers in boiling water, 2–3 minutes or just until tender; drain. Fill peppers with chicken mixture.

For each serving, arrange 2 pepper halves on a plate. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cilantro, and serve with lime wedges.
