Look at me! Look at me! I'm blogging! I'm blogging! It seems like every year, I take an unintended hiatus over Thanksgiving. We usually travel to Los Angeles, and it's hard to keep up with cooking and posting recipes, even though it seems ALL I'm doing is eating, eating and eating. But now I'm back... just in time for the most wonderful time of the year (minus waking up every morning and realizing I forgot to move that damn elf... ugh, that smirk).
I can't wait to flood this site with holiday baking but for now, let's talk about delicious comfort food. On the Today Show yesterday, Padma Lakshmi made a chile that the crew raved and raved about. Savannah even sent me a text, urging me to make it (and you don't ignore a woman who is 9 months pregnant). It begins with this verde sauce consisting of tomatillos, avocados, jalapeños, cilantro and tons of yummy spices. By the way, you should absolutely double this sauce and save some because it's ridiculous. Then ground pork, onions and cannellini beans are added to a pot along with the sauce, stock, oh, and did I mention tequila? The depth of flavors are intense, and yet it's also something I think your kids would enjoy (especially if you de-seed the jalapeños like I did).
You can find the recipe HERE.
Have a great weekend!
