  • MorningFlower 8 months ago about Gov Bill Richardsons Posole
    Mexicanfoodlover: you are incorrect and nullifies your traditional opinion given about that the tradional/authenticity of Bill Richardson's Pozole recipe. His recipe instructions follows as much as in any "original" in any recipe I seen in several in my collection from at least 25 recipe books. My cookbooks range from:
    Mexican, NM Mexican, Tex-Mex, and including the intriguing heritage of Native American cuisine.

    **Pozole** alternatively appropriate spelling is **posole** is a Mexican soup.

    So glad summer is here so we can eat this again! I ordered a case of Cameronazo (shrimp and tomato juice from Walmart) and I am ready for the summer! This is THE best recipe. I judge all shrimp cocktails by this even when we eat out! I follow this recipe exactly except the juice.
  • grillcoop 2 years ago about ORIGINAL MAID-RITES COPYCAT
    Just like the resturants only you can make at home. I think they are worth making. Very good with pickles on top!

    Hi, justjakesmom. Yes that is the correct amount of baking powder. It is probably to compensate for so many bananas. Needs more lift, I guess, but then so do I. LOL
  • justjakesmom 7 years ago
    I have a question, softshell, I was looking at your "Best Banana bread" recipe. I want to make it, but is that a typo - "7" tsp. of baking powder? I just have never seen that much in a banana bread recipe. Always 1 or 1 1/2 tsp. ???

    Wish I could take credit for those chiles, but they are grown extensively in NM, dried and made into ristras to hang. I always have chiles hanging on my front porch.
    I plant a few plants in my home garden each spring so I can have fresh really handy, but I buy whole, frozen green chiles from a local grower each year. They are so beautifully roasted and packaged, they seem like fresh. If anyone needs their name and address, they do ship all kinds of chile products, and have a website, so here it is ....

    I love your recipes and the beautiful picture of the dried chiles. Did you grow all of those yourself?
