We need extra cerveza today after last night's Lakers debacle.
Probably will be Pacifico, maybe Bohemia. I'm on my way to the
Mexican market to pick up their marinated carne asada for the grill
for tacos. I'm thinking of making the oddball rice our amigos used to
make when they lived on a beach in Baja: sweat some white onion in
oil in the rice pot, add the rice and stir it around to coat with oil,
add a small drained can of Veg-All, chicken broth (and tomato juice
optional), cover, simmer till done. It's not something I recommend,
just one of those "family history" kind of things. Not quite comfort
food, but reminiscent of good times......

For those who are curious, Veg-All is a canned mixed vegetables
product that has been around for decades. Not distinguished in any
way but people with limited refrigerator/freezer space find it
handy. -aem

Frijoles

2 lb pinto beans, uncooked
1 gallon cold water for soaking beans
3/4 lb bacon slices chopped in 1" squares
1/2 cup finely-chopped fresh garlic, plus 1 tbsp
4 tbsp finely-chopped cilantro, plus 1 tbsp
1 large onion, chopped
1 tbsp cumin
1-2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 gallon cold water for cooking beans
1 1/2 tbsp salt
2 cup chopped Roma tomatoes

Soak beans in 1 gallon cold water for 8 hours or overnight. Drain when
ready to cook.

In a 2-gallon heavy pot, cook the bacon pieces until well done. Do not
under cook the bacon. Add 1/2 cup chopped garlic, 3 tablespoon
cilantro, and chopped onions to hot bacon. Cook until onions are
transparent.

When onions are ready, add beans, cumin, and chili powder. Stir and add
1/2 gallon cold water. Turn heat to medium-low. Add salt and stir. Cook
beans slowly until fork tender (approximately 1 hour). Stir occasionally
to avoid burning.

Add tomatoes, remaining garlic and cilantro, then serve.

Thanks for this Becca! I don't make chili very often because I'm not
sure of the spice proportions.

Or:

Quesadillas de chorizo y queso (from: Cocina Mexicana)

120 g de mozzarella rallada (1/4 lb grated mozzarella)
120 g de cheddar rallada (1/4 lb grated cheddar)
225 g de chorizo cocido (1/2 lb cooked Mexican chorizo)
4 cebollitas picadas (4 salad/green onions minced)
2 chiles verdes frescos, sin semillas y picados (2 fresh green chiles,
seeded and minced)
sal y pimienta (salt and pepper)
8 tortillas de harina de trigo (8 flour tortillas)
aceite vegetal, par untar (vegetable oil for greasing)
gajos de lima, para adornar (wedges of lime for garnish)

(Translated loosely)
Mix the cheeses, chorizo, salad onions, chile and salt and pepper in a
bowl. Divide the mixture among 4 flour tortillas and top with the
remaining 4 tortillas.
Heat a large frying pan (nonstick OK) over medium heat and grease with a
little oil. Fry a quesadilla until the bottom is light brown, about 4 or
5 minutes. Turn over and fry the other side until the cheeses start to
melt. Set aside and keep warm while frying the others.
Cut each quesadilla into quarters. Serve hot, topped with lime wedges.

Buen Provecho!

Too risky to celebrate. You can get Mexican Swine Flu if you do.

Let me know how you like them. These beans freeze well, I have a few
containers in my freezer right now.
