  • Carne Adovada

    When I was out in Albq. and Gallup this spring, shopping for rough turquoise, jet, lapis and gaspeite, I stopped and bought frozen green and red chile before crossing the line back into TX. Packed 20 lbs on dry ice and brought the whole lot home.

    Tonight I made some carne adovada -- pork "cured" in red chile.

    Heat 3 Tbsp of oil over medium heat and add 3Tbsp of flour to make a roux. Lightly brown.


    1 16oz tub of thawed, Bueno frozen red chile puree -- mild;
    1.5 c water;
    3-4 tsp of chicken Better than Bullion;
    1 tsp garlic powder;
    2 tsp ground Mexican oregano;
    3-5 tsp ground Chimayo chile;
    ground black pepper.

    SImmer until thickened. Cool.

    In a large ceramic or glass covered baking dish (the chile mixture will attach some metals) mix:

    3 lb of trimmed pork loin or lean pork butt, cut into 1" cubes;
    1 large white onion, coarsely diced;
    the cooled chile sauce.

    Refrigerate overnight.

    Bake 350 F 2.5 - 3 hours or until the pork is fall apart tender.

    Or place in crock pot at cook on high for 6 hrs.

            I don't eat hot food by New Mexico or even Texas standards. That is what I like about this dish. It is very flavorful without being killingly hot. It has a good chile flavor without being too spicy.

              Soup Diet
              by wyo_rose
              This has sure been the weather for soup. And I've been too busy to cook or even eat dinner at a decent hour. I made some broccoli soup late last night in about 10 minutes and have enough left for lunch.

              The past 3 months I've been so stressed and so busy that I've put on about 20 pounds,...

              I'm still looking for the PERFECT lasagna, but here's a good easy recipe WITHOUT precooking the noodles. I don't do good with wet noodles anyway. I end up tearing them to bits (get you mind out of the gutter - jks).

              Life has intervened in the last 3 months and I haven't been here as often as I would like (but I can see lots of goot looking new recipes!)

              Here's one that was "invented" because of the "what can be made ahead of time and use what we got in the house" factor. It's...
