Tortilla Española de Patatas

tortilla espanola

You need yellow potatoes, yellow onions, eggs, salt, olive oil, and salt. A saute pan, a deep pan (stockpot), and a wide plate, wider than the saute pan to turn the tortilla --this is actually the most challenging step. Depending on size of the nonstick saute pan you want to use, measure how many whole potatoes will fit in the pan. Then use about a 1:4 ratio of onions to potatoes. Set the saute pan aside. You will use this later.


Enchiladas Verdes - Adapted from Rick Bayless

From Rick Bayless: "Here is a recipe for the classic Mexican enchiladas, the ones that combine a flavor that is traditionally tart and piquant with the mealy meatiness of corn tortillas, the tenderness of chicken and a sharp, salty adornment of aged Mexican cheese. They’re rolled up and sauced in cafeterías (especially the new, bright chain restaurants) everywhere—and with above-average fervor in the heartland sections of Central and West-Central Mexico. They’re simple to make, easy to enjoy and attractively filling.

Buttery peanut nurtures the Earth element within you.

The fungus forms galls on all above-ground parts of corn species, and is known in Mexico as huitlacoche; it is eaten, usually as a filling, in quesadillas and other tortilla-based foods, and soups.

This is a basic but delicious recipe
