Traditional New Mexico Tamales

Personally, I don’t like pork.  So I fill these with beef, chicken, beans, peppers and onions, or whatever.  At thanksgiving I like to fill them with roasted turkey and top them with gravy and cranberry sauce.


” If you don’t like tamales, then there must be something wrong with you. This New Mexican treat is a favorite among just about every New Mexican, with an addition to many other traditional dishes served here in New Mexico. Ingredients 1 6-ounce package dried corn husks Filling 1½ pounds pork loin 1 medium onion, chopped

This insanely delicious tamale filling is also one of the easiest—fruity roasted poblano peppers paired with strands of melted mild Oaxacan cheese. It’s a minimal combo that delivers a lot of flavor within a light and tender tamale dough.

Pennies & Pancakes: Frozen Bean and Cheese Burritos ($0.11 each)

Pennies & Pancakes: Frozen Bean and Cheese Burritos ($0.11 each).

This is a FANTASTIC website which can really help you budget down.  Today I made these burritos.  I used a can of refried beans, and a can of black beans – mashed with a fork, mixed together.  I got them both free from my local food bank.  I also added 1/2 yellow onion diced, and 1 jalapeno diced.  I grated a 8oz block of colby cheddar cheese and used that in it as well.  I found that the pan-toasting didn’t work great for me, I toasted them lightly in the toaster oven instead.  These make perfect snacks or a light meal – pair with a salad if you are being healthy – and even tho frozen burritos are generally pretty cheap (about 75 cents or a buck each in my area), its still MUCH cheaper and oh so easy to make your own.  Really, it took me maybe a half hour total to make 20 of these. Add ground beef or soy crumbles if you prefer.  Add in more veggies, corn, chopped up spinach, whatever, to make them even more healthy and delicious.
