Anddddd the Mexican flavor adventure continues…
I’m definitely going through a phase… ya think?
Oh well, it’s a phase that I could get used to that’s for sure 😉
At least until we get closer to Thanksgiving, when more traditional turkey day foods will soon again reappear!
But that is not today. No friends.
Today we have these flavors:
The trip to the local Latino market left me with enough dried peppers for the next year… or month, we’ll see how it goes 😉
I used the guajillo and pasilla to make a version of Diana Kennedy’s Barbecue Sauce
Soaking the chiles in hot water for about 20 minutes…. well actually it turned into closer to 40 because I got completely side tracked talking to the Sears dishwasher repairman that was at our house at the time. He was from Puerto Rico and a chef for 15 years, so talk of plaintains, pigeon peas, beans and rice got me a little off track! I learned so many fun authentic recipes (plus something to do with the chile arbol!) and got some great restaurant recommendations around town too 🙂 Best dishwashing repairman visit ever, the end.
Okay back to the sauce, here’s the finished product once blended.
Which I whipped up on Saturday afternoon and stashed away for this start-of-the-week meal. Nothing like homemade fresh flavors with no work after a long day at the office!
But you’ll have to stay tuned for tonight’s adventure in the kitchen to see the final recipe & meal!
HAPPY MONDAY TO ALL 😀
