Chile Verde – Hearty & Warming for a cold winter’s day!

It is a cold, gloomy day here in NorCal today.  When the weather is blustery, my tummy wants soup, stew, or chile.  There is nothing more comforting than the delicious aroma of something warm and yummy cooking in the kitchen.

We have spent many winters in Bend, OR with my cousin and her family.  Mt. Bachelor is a wonderful ski resort and Bend has lots to do when you are not skiing/boarding.  My boys are not big chile lovers so I had never cooked Chile Verde for them. One cold night after a full day of skiing, my cousin made some, the house smelled amazing, the chile was delicious, and it immediately became a family favorite.


Chilaquiles – The Ultimate Mexican Breakfast

The first time I had chilaquiles was on vacation in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico; they were part of the breakfast buffet every morning. That dish was very basic – tortilla chips cooked in sauce. If you have never had them before, chilaquiles are like breakfast nachos (sounds delicious, right?) and we  pronounce them (Cheel-ay-keel-ays).
