*The following recipes were published by the
South Bend 5001 LULAC Council in their "Aficionados"
Mexican Cookery Guide No. 2 cookbook.
- ¾ cup milk
- ¼ cup butter or margarine
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 3 cups flour

(see " Note" below)
Heat milk and butter to boiling.
Cool. Stir in beaten eggs. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add
egg mixture and mix well. Knead dough on lightly floured surface 2 to 3
minutes until smooth. Shape into 20 balls. Let rest 4 minutes. Roll each
ball into a 4-inch circle. Deep fry in hot fat (375 degrees) about 4
minutes or until brown, turning once. Drain on paper toweling. Coat with
cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Yields 20 bunuelos
Note: for cinnamon and sugar mixture, use approximately l/2 cup sugar
Posole: (soup, it’s good to make
- 2 pounds pork, cubed
- 2 onions, chopped
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 teaspoon fat
- l/2 teaspoon oregano
- l cup red chili pulp or
- 4 – 6 tablespoons chili powder
- 3 cups hominy
- 1 teaspoon salt
Fry onions in fat, add pork and blend. Add
hominy, chile and seasoning. Add hot water and simmer until pork is thoroughly
tender; about four (4) hours. Serve steaming hot. If chili powder is used, mix with
l tablespoon of flour and stir
into fat. If canned hominy is used cook pork
until almost done, add hominy, then simmer until done. Make sure to take your
leaf out when recipe is done.
With this recipe my family likes to put on the
table as side dishes that you can add a little to the Posole: shredded cabbage, radishes, onions and
Serve with corn tortillas and enjoy!
