Sara’s Weeknight Meals: Season 04

Episode 401: Mexican Cocina

401-SARA-AND-SUZIE-280x185I have always been a fan of both Mexican and Southwestern food. I love the spices, I love the ingredients, I love the chiles. In this episode I am preparing three different recipes in tribute to this cuisine. The first recipe, Duck Tacos, takes advantage of a wonderful new ingredient, a half roast duck. I shred it and add it to my own homemade spice blend and then pile it in a crispy taco with (low fat) refried beans and all the fixin’s. Your family or guests can customize their taco with their favorite toppings. This is a very speedy weeknight meal. Then on to roasted Portobello Enchiladas, an entrée so “meaty” nobody will realize its vegetarian, and finally a surprise dessert – Peach and Blackberry Tamales made with almost all local ingredients. I get a lesson in tamale wrapping from a talented home cook, Suzie Trivisonno, and so will you.
