Brown the beef and drain. Add the onion and garlic and cook until soft. Add the tomato sauce, cumin, and chiles. Simmer for 5 minutes. Set aside. Briefly heat each tortilla in a pan with a little oil until soft enough to roll. Fill each tortilla with some of the meat mixture. Roll tightly (into the shape of a medium-sized cigar). Set aside.

This spreadable cheese makes a great addition to the food table at any cocktail party.

1/2 teaspoon Garlic, minced

1/8 teaspoon Hot Sauce

4 ounces Beer

1/2 teaspoon Salt

Add the cheese, Worcestershire, mustard, garlic, and hot sauce to the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Pulse in the beer, a little at a time, until the mixture is spreadable. Add salt and pulse until mixed. Serve with crackers or cocktail rye bread.   



This is a quick and easy comfort food.

Serves 2

4 Bread slices

4 Eggs


Place bread on a cutting board. Press out a circle from the center using a glass or biscuit cutter. Heat the butter in a skillet. Add the bread and the removed circle. Lightly brown on both sides. Break the egg into the hole in the bread's center. Allow it to set and turn. Cook to desired temperature. Serve the circle as toast.   


Chorizo Empanadas   

These small, savory pies make great party appetizers.

Makes about 2 dozen


4 cups Flour

2 Eggs

5 Tablespoons Vegetable shortening

1 teaspoon Salt

1 1/2 cups Milk


1 1/2 pound Chorizo sausage, ground

1 medium Onion, diced

1 teaspoon Garlic, minced

1/2 cup Salsa

Oil for frying

Place the flour, eggs, shortening, and salt in a food processor bowl. Pulse until well mixed. Add half of the milk and pulse until blended. Add the rest of the milk and pulse until a ball forms. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Brown the chorizo in a heavy skillet. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is just soft. Drain off any excess fat. Mix in the salsa. Set aside.

Roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thick on a floured cutting board. Cut out three-inch circles. Place 1 Tablespoon of the chorizo mix in the center of each circle. Fold into a half-circle. Crimp the outer edge with a fork to seal. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet. Add the empanadas and brown lightly on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.

(for grilled or baked fish)

This simple but flavorful butter adds flavors that complement most types of seafood.

4 ounces Butter

1 Tablespoon Dill weed, fresh or dried

1/2 teaspoon Garlic, minced

1 Tablespoon Sugar

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

6 pieces Thick cut bread (like "Texas Toast")

2 Tablespoons Butter

Warm syrup

Powdered sugar

Oil for frying

Marinara (See Emazing recipe archive for my marinara recipe)

Roll in the breadcrumbs. Carefully place in the hot oil and cook until lightly browned, turning once. Serve hot with warm marinara sauce for dipping.   



This easy recipe, with fresh ingredients, is far superior to the frozen version.

Serves 4

2 Tablespoons Oil

2 Tablespoons Butter or bacon drippings

2 large Potatoes, grated

1 medium Onion, grated

Salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil and butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Mix the potatoes and onion. Season. Add to the skillet and press down firmly with a spatula. When browning starts to occur around the edges, turn over and press down again. Cook until well browned. Slice into four wedges. Serve with other breakfast items (eggs, bacon, etc.).   



Try this easy salsa over grilled chicken or swordfish.

Serves 4

2 cups Mangoes, diced

2 tablespoons Red Bell Peppers, small diced

2 tablespoons Cilantro, fresh, minced

Salt to taste

If using fresh mangoes, peel and separate the fruit from the seed. Toss the remaining ingredients with the mangoes in a medium bowl. Allow to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes. Use immediately or cover and refrigerate and use within 24 hours.
