Wondering what the difference is between different types of tequila and mezcal? Jackie Alpers has answers! Includes recipes for Tequila Citrus Sipper and Paloma cocktails
Chiltepin salsa is an all-purpose salsa that can be used for dipping, for seasoning, and as a taco sauce. A little goes a long way, so if you prefer a milder salsa, cut the amount of chiles down by a half or a third. This recipe is from the Taste of Tucson cookbook by Jackie Alpers.
I ate this as a makeshift breakfast every day for weeks while writing Taste of Tucson.
The fat from the tablespoon of chorizo makes the egg really crispy and adds a lot of flavor without too many extra calories. I fry up a batch of chorizo in advance and store it in the fridge, where it becomes solid until I scoop it out and heat it up.
This quick vegetarian breakfast is a cross between matzo molletes and huevos rancheros. I used beans from a can and my homemade chiltepin salsa.
A plant-based, high-moisture ground beef alternative such as Beyond Beef also works well in this recipe.
