With an explanation mark!

Chilaquiles in Tomatillo Sauce with Shredded Chicken

Many of my friends aren’t familiar with Chilaquiles, which is a bit of a shame. Frankly, they sound a bit odd: Old tortillas broken into pieces, fried and then simmered in a sauce? One bite is all it will take to realize how wrong an assumption can be. The tortillas take on a life of their own in this Chilaquiles Verde; they not only thicken the bright, tangy tomatillo sauce but achieve a gorgeous texture, slightly softened with just a bit of chew; cooked right they’re simply sublime.

Health Nut Avocado Sandwiches

Way back in the late 70’s I fell in love and lived in the quaint little town in the Colorado Rockies, Georgetown. Young and single with a new adventure every day, I really did have the time of my life. Hiking, backpacking and biking all summer, skiing all winter, I could pretty much eat anything I wanted, and I often wanted these delicious sandwiches! Healthy, fresh, filling and best of all, cheap!

Pozole Pork Hominy Stew Posole

Posole or Pozole Pork Hominy Stew

Posole or Pozole A favorite down home stew of pork and hominy, Easy to make from scratch or from pulled pork leftovers, stove-top or slow cooker.

I was introduced to Posole Rojo or Pozole Pork Hominy Stew in Denver when one of my co-workers bought it to nearly every “food day.” Those in the “know” snuck away to the buffet table before lunch before it was all gone. Now, I’d like to introduce you! Succulent pork and hominy swimming in a rich, garlicky, chile-based broth; the taste is reminiscent of tamales.
