Arroz Verde Mexican Green Rice

While potatoes may be my goto side for so many dishes, there are just some meals that are better with rice. Like almost all Mexican meals! And while I love my Restaurant Style Mexican Rice and Cilantro Lime Rice (Instant Pot or not), I love Arroz Verde Mexican Green Rice even more.

Corn Patch Corn Casserole

Corn Patch Corn Casserole

This is an oldie but a goodie, Corn Patch Corn Casserole. I was thumbing through my recipes when I came across it and I don’t think I’ve made it for over 30 years. I thought I’d resurrect my recipe and try it again. See if my memories about how good this is are correct and all that.

Rajas con Crema Tacos

One of my all time favorite Mexican foods is Rajas – mild Poblano peppers, roasted, cut in strips and in the case of “con Crema” simmered for a few minutes in cream. Often served with cheese mixed in, they can be rich or can be served simply, as shown below.

Chile Rellanos

Chile Rellanos have always topped my list of favorite Mexican/South Western type meals. A mild poblano, artfully stuffed with a mixture of cheeses, dipped in an egg white batter and served over a bed of sweet/sour sauce is something I crave to this day.
