Pork Pozole

Pork Pozole

Tom Douglas is a big name in the restaurant business here in Seattle. His chefs prepared Smoky Pork Pozole for Lish (a former online meal delivery service). I loved the flavors! I knew I had to try and recreate it. Most of the recipes I found online used tomatoes instead of tomatillos. So, I decided to try and recreate the one I ate and this one is very close.

I recently tested this recipe on my family for Cinco De Mayo. My family has many different types of eaters (vegans, pescatarians and meat) , so I decided to create a taco that tastes like a steak but is indeed a delicious fish. This recipe is sweet, salty and spicy.

CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP

CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP

A festive soup loaded with flavor and texture, it’s savory, colorful and fresh – sure to knock your socks and sombrero right off.

The base for chicken tortilla soup is a mixture of peppers, onions, garlic, chicken stock, enchilada sauce and Mexican seasonings. Hominy, tomatoes and chicken are added, and it’s all topped with cheese, onions, cilantro, lime and fresh fried tortilla strips. Avocados and jalapeños would go great as well. And, for a creamier soup, stir in a dollop of sour cream.

Baby Mexican Street Corn

Baby Mexican Street Corn

Love elote but can’t eat it gracefully? Here’s a version for dates, parties, and fancy clothes that shouldn’t get messy but should still get all the fun.

The corn skewers can be roasted, broiled or grilled before getting all dressed up. Use Polar baby corn or another brand that you know doesn’t smell like a barnyard, or even fresh if you can get it!
