We’ve all been there. Its 4:45, you’re trying to get supper together and in the oven, and you need a can of green chiles…but there are none in the pantry! So, stock up on roasted green chiles in the freezer when you can! I love using them fresh, but sometimes […]
20 Minute Tostada’s
I picked up my Half time hostess pack last night and saw my prizes….I was so excited. I don’t think people realize the value of these babies, the gazillion things we can do with them! I think I will be testing out the possibilities in the near future. But, I […]
Bacon and Hatch Chile’s, Enough Said!
You know what I love about Bountiful Baskets? What I REALLY love? Beyond the healthy food on my dinner plate; beyond the rewards I get when I volunteer and do my part to ensure the success of our co-op, which is helping countless people; even beyond money I am saving by […]

Summer Asian Slaw
The Asian pack has always been one of my favorites! I love to make up large batches of egg rolls and wontons ( some fried and some raw to use for wonton soup) and stock my freezer. Who doesn’t love a wok full of colorful stir fry?

Green Chile Sauce
I am neither Irish nor Mexican, but that didn’t stop me from making some delicious St. Paddy’s Day green chile enchiladas using a homemade, to-die-for green chile sauce. It was about time I used the 6 green chiles that were still sitting in my fridge from the Bountiful Basket I […]
Corn, Jicama, & Green Chile Salsa
After picking up this week’s Basket and before heading to the grocery store for supplements, I sat in my car creating my menu plan for the next two weeks. I wrote meatloaf and turnip mashed potatoes down on my list, thinking I could turn what I thought was a turnip […]
We had some Hatch Chile’s left and I wanted to try them in a humus. So here’s the result!
My family loves lasagna. They love Mexican (or TexMex, or whatever it is usually called these days!). What they don’t tend to love is corn tortillas, unless we do something special with them. Sometimes I turn corn tortillas into chips. Other times I want something more real.
