Hatch Chile Paste

Hi All,

Here is a simple way for those of us who don't have easy access to fresh Hatch chiles to make chile paste from the dried peppers. I keep these ice cubes in my freezer for year round use.

authentic Cabo recipes

A friend of mine owns a restaurant in Cabo named Felix' World-Famous mexican & Seafood Restaurant. Although he is changing back to his original passion for the taco stand. Anyways, he has a web site and shares all of his recipes. He is a colorful hippie and if you click on recipes it will take you to each one of his salsa or other foods he serves. He also has a newsletter if you add your email and subscribe to it. He isnt fond of what he refers to as the Nazi Chefs on food tv. He doesnt belive anyone should have to invest in expensive equipment or food items to make perfectly good and authentic food. Hope you enjoy him as much as I do.

I may not be from the South West, but I love the food of the SW!

My favorite recipes are those of the South West and Mexico. I love chilies of all varieties, both spicy hot and not so hot. This summer my garden patch didn't fair too well, but one jalapeno plant survived. It has produced several chili peppers that I have been enjoying. Hopefully next summer will be better. Until then, I will enjoy my one little plant. :)

Best $2.00 Soft tacos in the world!

I went to a place called the Flying Burrito yesterday for lunch and I had the best shredded beef taco with green chili sauce. Now I am going to duplicate it if I can. I know the owner so he may give me the recipe. I tend to know the chef and owner at every restaurant we go to. It is helpful! HA!
