So tonight’s meal was one of my famous “let’s open the fridge and see what we have”. Some people call it “kitchen sink” cooking. I call it, “I really need to go the store, but have no desire to fight the crazies today cooking”. It had been a while since I had made anything spicy or Mexican so I felt that it was time to whip up a batch of some South of the Boarder Yummies! My Foodie BFF and Best Bud in real Life Ashley of Kitchen Meets Girl, is obsessed with Mexican food! If I had been lucky enough to have had her in town to make this for she would have gone crazy for it! The KMG family loves it spicy! Let me tell you this one was HOT! If you like it Hot than by all means make this recipe to the letter, if you want it a little milder TAKE THE SEEDS OUT OF THE CHILES!!! I know this and for some unknown reason I thought to myself,’how hot can the seeds really make it?’ Holy Cow! They can make it really HOT!!! The crazy thing is I only used Hatch Chile’s which are low on the pepper heat scale. I think my summer of illness has made me weak, mild peppers too hot, one glass of wine and I am tipsy…… I need to “work out” more often and build that resistance back up.
If you are lucky enough to be reading the post during Hatch Chile Season please by all means make this recipe with them! If you have never used Hatch Chile’s before please see my How to Roast Hatch Chile’s Post. If it is not Hatch Chile Season or you do not live where you can get them fresh you can use 1-2 4 oz cans of chopped green chiles that can be found in any grocery store. The ingredients are probably all things that you have in your fridge and pantry right now so this a quick easy weeknight throw together meal!! The great thing about this is No One Will Know!!!! It shows beautifully and tastes amazing! Yes we all took the leftovers with us for lunch the next day! Even my leftover hating Husband!!!
Dinner is Served!
