Enchiladas verdes. So simple. So tasty. Easy to get right. Easy to get wrong as well. Keep a few things in mind and you can make better enchiladas verdes than you can buy.
Yucatan grilled chicken. A little bit of sunshine next time you grill. Big, bold, bright tastes. Citrus. Achiote. Chili. Mustard. Garlic. What’s not to love? It’s dead easy as well. Just combine all the ingredients in the blender. Marinate the chicken. Grill. Smile.
Chicken tinga tacos are a great alternative to carnitas or carne asada. It’s way easier to make as well. Takes way less time. Delicious though. Definitely tasty.
New Mexican red pork chili, or carne adovada, is slow food. It’s good food. Do it right and it’s great food. Tons of chile and roasted onion flavour. Big, big tastes. And the best part? Use cheaper cuts of pork. Shoulder or country style ribs work well. Expensive parts dry out. This is a braise. You wouldn’t make stew with beef tenderloin. Pork is no different.
Pico de gallo. There are 7,502,231 recipes on the internet. I counted. They are all exactly the same. Chop some stuff. Mix it up. Eat. There is a better way to make pico de gallo.
Chile verde. Chili Colorado. Braised pork with tomatillos. Add some more green chilies and some cilantro and you have what might be the state dish of New Mexico. It’s all over the southern US. It’s nowhere up north. I don’t know why. It’s flat out comfort food.
