L.A. Dish of the Month, April 2015 -- Nominations

FRIED RICE!

Love this idea. Chinese, Korean, Peruvian. And most of all the hopes of finding that fried rice from my childhood, with BIG shrimp and lots of egg.

Is Guisados really that great?

In terms of drinks... they make a WONDERFUL Dirty Horchata. If anything I go there for that.

Totally subjective: Little Jewel vs. Orleans and York Po-Boys

Happy to hear it!!! It's a welcome addition to the neighborhood and L.A. if not for the Tasso alone! :DD

Actually you can get some really good suits at the right places in the Fashion district and inexpensive tailoring. Ask P. about his man Clint.

First Look At Peking Tavern

Gah! We never get there early enough for Happy hour. But it's in our regular rotation now. We start at Kazu Nori for some rolls and then head over to PT for Dumplings, Cucumber Salad and the Beef Noodle Soup. A wonderful night.

That actually sounds exactly like how I do it. Minus the tomato paste. :)

Whole Foods Brea

Fabulous! My parents live in Diamond Bar and before they opened in Chino Hills we would travel to to TJs in Brea. Now I guess we'll be back to making that circuit! :D

This is a guide to how I do my chilaquiles, although a bit fancier.

http://food52.com/blog/11541-chilaqui...

I grill veggies (Corn, Squash, whatever you might have on hand) and chop them up.

Then I take the salsa and mix in with equal amount chicken broth

I then add lightly fried tortilla quarters (If you HAVE to use store bought, get THICK ones, I like Casa Sanchez brand) and put them in the pot, coat them in the salsa until they absorb the sauce but aren't falling apart.

I then put them in a casserole dish, sprinkle some fresh Mexican cheese and put them in the broiler for a little bit.

I serve topped with fresh chopped white onion and cilantro and a ribbon of Mexican cream.

Chilaquilles is a breakfast dish and goes great with a fried egg on top. In Mexico every neighborhood has a tortilla maker and this was a way to use up tortillas with the left over salsa from the previous days meals. So really you can add anything you have on hand in terms on meat and veg.

OMG breakfast burrito

I found the burrito good... but not my favorite. However that green salsa... OMG. They should bottle it and make a fortune.

Had it again tonight (My husband jokes I'm going to put it on my corn flakes)this time with fried chicken!! Hubs put some in his macaroni salad)

I also finally figured out why I like it so. It's pretty low in salt, considering its a jarred product. I'm sensitive to salt so having this as a condiment option is great! :DD

In the tube. I cube it and add a bit of diluted chicken broth and season it with pepper and grated cheese.

Alameda Swap Meet recs?

The last time I went, none of the vendors wow'd me there. However, cross the street there is another market that has a couple of street vendors in the courtyard including a churro guy that was frying them fresh cazuela style! SO GOOD.

Yep. I've use the tube stuff for years. Unlike the canned stuff which can get mold, I wipe the cap clean after every use and have had my tubes for a month or even two!

Love the polenta!! It's a great thing to have on hand when you just want a simple meal (I love with mixed in with sauteed kale and a drizzle of the balsamic glaze... hmmmmm.)

Loved it! We had it with Pollo Asada tacos, but I want to use it to make chilaquilles. I love that it's a little chunky.
