Lori’s White Chili and a New Year Commitment

I was looking at Lori’s White Chili pictures and recipe and thinking how good it looked and decided I would make it for dinner.   It called for cooked chicken so I poached three chicken breasts and then on my way to work I stopped and picked up the other ingredients I needed. This is definitely…

Tex- Mex Seven Pepper Chili

This is my favourite Chili recipe.  I don’t always have the 7 different peppers but it doesn’t seem to make a difference.  I use this recipe as a guideline and season to suit our taste. Before leaving for work yesterday morning I put a pot of chili on to simmer and a pot of pinto…

Chili Rellenos – Mexican Dinner

Before leaving for work this morning I roasted three poblano peppers. I figured this would cut down on the time it would take make the chili rellenos once I got home. Served with black beans Mexican style rice And a spicy tomato chili sauce. I used my old standby recipe but topped the rellenos with…

Prawn Cocktail with Salsa Fresca and Avocado

I pulled some local spot prawns out of the freezer when I got home from work. While they were defrosting I made a fresh salsa using tomatoes from our garden. It only took one minute to poach the prawns. Moe loved dinner and it couldn’t have been any simpler. Salsa Fresca topped with chilled prawns…

Mexican Layered Supreme

I had a small pork roast that I wanted to slow roast and use in Pork Tacos. BUT it was just to hot to turn on the oven so I cut the roast up into cubes and made Pork Chili Verde. Rather than make tacos I used it in my favourite layered dish – Mexican…

Tex-Mex – Act II

I don’t like leftovers. Or maybe I should clarify that. I like very few leftovers. But this is one of the few meals that I make out of “deliberate” leftovers. The beans, pork, salsa all end up in what I call “Mexican Layered Supreme”. Guacamole does not keep, so I made a fresh batch. Rather…

Tex-Mex

Pork Carnitas Roasted Tomato Salsa Guacamole Mexican was on the menu here tonight. Pork Carnitas in homemade corn tortillas and served with pinto beans and guacamole. Washed down with Sangria. The pinto beans were put on to simmer in the morning. The beans had been soaked overnight. And I roasted tomatoes on the grill for…

An Excuse to Drink Sangria

Not that I actually need an excuse………… But it went great with the Pork Chili Verde over homemade flour tortillas, with Mexican rice, and homemade Salsa and guacamole that we had for dinner. Picture isn’t great but it really did taste good if I do say so myself. Home Cookin Chapter: Recipes From Thibeault’s Table…
