The other night John decided to make chilaquillas. He’s made a breakfast version for me before (when we were in Iowa) but this was the all-out full-meal-size-dinner-deal. He got some inspiration from AllRecipes.com and I think some from memory. Honestly, my mother in law’s food is really yummy – John needs to learn how to make sopa!
He made chillaquillas and I watched. Err well I assisted and learned how to prepare the beans. As usual, while enjoying our meal, we discussed what we can do next time to make it just that much more delicious. Looking at the cost of the ingredients, the prep time and how wonderful it turned out, this will have to be added to our regular meal rotation for sure.
What are you favourite recipes or twists on the ‘usual’ that might not be so ‘usual’?

Lovely of you to ask – my favourite trick is to find really saucy recipes and substitute tofu for the meat. It doesn’t fool anyone, but doesn’t banish tofu to the corner of Unexciting Recipes. Curry Tofu, Tofu with Tomatoes instead of the Chinese classic Beef with Tomatoes, Tofu steaks with mushroom sauce…..
no fair! now I’m dying to make peanut butter oatmeal vanilla cookies… is your recipe top secret or would you share it? please?

[…] The focus this year is on family and well you can’t have family times without the food. Madarine oranges (that I’m allergic to but eat anyway), nuts, snacks, chocolates, turkey, stuffing oh man. Browsing through a regular read, I came across some recipes that John and I should really try out. We don’t do nearly as much ‘experimental’ cooking, which reminds me that we haven’t done Chillaquillas for a while. […]
