I Love New Mexico

About all things New Mexican

December - 11 - 2013

It’s a snowy day in northern New Mexico.  If you’re looking for something delicious, simple and easy to make for dinner, I found it.  And then I made it last night.  I guess it was my unintentional meatless Monday meal. I ventured out of the house yesterday after hours of watching it snow, and I eventually ended up my mother’s very warm inviting kitchen, drinking coffee.  There was a new dish on her stove, a pie pan of something looking suspiciously green chile-ish.  “What’s that, and may I have it for lunch?” I asked.  “Eat it all,” she said, “your  [ Read More ]

We love baseball at my house, so every night that there’s been a game on, we’ve planned our meals accordingly.  Ultra simple and easy, something that can be eaten without thinking while sitting in front of the tv.  Couch potato food, but we’re pretty dedicated to being at least slightly nutritious. . . On Monday night, we had beans made in the crock pot, fried potatoes and muenster cheese-stuffed jalapenos wrapped in turkey bacon (baked in the oven at 375 for 20 minutes while Texas was trying to tie the game).  While the fried potatoes might not qualify as ultra-healthy, we  [ Read More ]

Long ago and far away when I was living in Liberal, Kansas (an oxymoron if ever I heard one. . .), I tried the Simply Simpatico recipe for Green Chiles Rellenos, knowing that I was never going to find the dish in a local restaurant (that’s also the year I learned to make flour tortillas, although I promptly forgot that skill when I returned to New Mexico).  And then it became a staple meal at our house – the recipe was simple, the ingredients were cheap, and I got my chile fix on a regular basis. This past Monday afternoon  [ Read More ]

We did it again yesterday – we had our second Meatless Monday.  And we got our green chile fix as well.  I cooked Artichoke and Garlic Soup, and added, of course, green chile.  It was fast, easy and delicious.  We had some crusty garlic bread and a salad to go with it – it may well have been the best meal we’ve had all week. So, here’s the recipe for the soup.  Simple and fast – this is a great find. Artichoke, Garlic and Green Chile Soup 6 – 8 artichoke hearts (fresh, frozen or packed in water – NOT marinated),  [ Read More ]

We signed the Meatless Monday pledge at our house this week, which meant that yesterday was our first Meatless Monday.  Why Meatless?  Well, as the website says, “going meatless once a week may reduce your risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. It can also help reduce your carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel.”  (http://www.meatlessmonday.com) I’m a relatively shallow girl, so preventing obesity is high on my list of objectives.  But I also feel like whatever small thing I can do to reduce my own carbon footprint (they think  [ Read More ]
