Food for thought
[Jan.13]

Recipes are always great to share with friends and family.  From time to time we will offer some tried-and-true recipes.  Here are two of our favorites.  Salud!

*The following recipes were published by the South Bend 5001 LULAC Council in their "Aficionados" Mexican Cookery Guide No. 2 cookbook.

Buenuelos:

  • ¾ cup milk
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • fat for frying
  • cinnamon and sugar mixture (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 and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

 

Posole: (soup, it’s good to make anytime)

  • 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 bay 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 lemon. 

Serve with corn tortillas and enjoy!
