Sopa de Carne

Friday, February 4, 2011

A long long time ago, Lon was engaged before to someone other than me. I know! The nerve! Ok, I was engaged to someone else before Lon too. Both happened and ended years before we met each other so no worries. The good part of this story is that Lon learned a lot about Latin […]

Cheating Enchiladas

Thursday, December 16, 2010

Let’s not talk about the food yet.  Let’s talk about the reason for this dish or more specifically the recipe.  In previous posts for chili pepper-based recipes, we have received notes about how the chili peppers we use are often hard to find in certain areas: cascabels, chipotles, pequins, anchos, guajillos, etc.  Other people have […]

Roasted Poblano and Chorizo Black Beans

Saturday, November 6, 2010

I make black beans several times a year and I posted about it way back in April of 2008. This time, I made a large batch and felt compelled to post about it again. Why? For one thing, I needed to make sure that readers who were not with us in 2008 are made aware […]

Dulce de Leche Made in the Can

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Sure Dulce de Leche sounds fancy, but it’s just like caramel but more milky. MMM, creamy caramelized sugar…GOOOOD. The best part is, it’s insanely easy to make. Insanely! How can I stress this enough? So easy my dog could do it (if she had thumbs). So easy my dad could do it. (My dad has […]

Maduros con Queso

Sunday, May 3, 2009

We’ve had some plantains ripening on our counter for quite a while.  One of them turned as black as our granite.  We simply had to use them… poor us, forced to eat sweet, delicious plantains.  I was just going to slice them up and fry them into maduros — it wouldn’t be the first time.  […]

Make Ahead Black Bean Soup

Sunday, February 1, 2009

This black bean soup benefits from being made a day ahead so that the flavors can really come together. It’s always great to have these kind of recipes around because sometimes you want to get some of the cooking out of the way early, so you don’t have to rush day of.

Avomergency – Ay Caramba!

Friday, January 30, 2009

In celebration of our new multi-lingual site, we had a little fiesta yesterday at Casa de FoodMayhem. Actually, the real reason was because we bought a bunch of avocados at BJ’s last weekend and they were turning ripe very quickly. We were hoping to make it to the weekend to have some friends […]

Home-made Tortillas

Sunday, October 5, 2008

Lon made that orgasmic Pequin Pepper Sauce and soft tacos seemed like an ideal way to use it. I must have been feeling daring because we made tortillas from scratch. Doughs are one of the hardest segments of cooking/baking and we haven’t made tortillas ourselves before and we don’t have a tortilla press. This first […]

Pequin Pepper Sauce

Sunday, October 5, 2008

Wandering through the farmer’s market yesterday, Jessica and I were discussing whether or not grapes were in the berry family. The answer is yes. If you didn’t already know Jessica loves berries. Then, as if the universe was calling to us a moment later we found ourselves in front of a beautiful […]
