"Different, but not strange" - what's on your breakfast plate?

She cut the queso into 1/4" slices, and served it without grilling. It was a cooling complement to the hot and greasy chorizo, and spicy pico. One could eat it taco style, although the arepa is a little too thick, so I end up breaking it up and using pieces to scoop up the rest. it's really addicting, consider yourself forewarned!

"Different, but not strange" - what's on your breakfast plate?

A Colombian friend introduced me to a breakfast consisting of a slab of queso fresco, a chorizo sausage split lengthwise and browned on a grill pan and a toasted arepa, all topped off with pico de gallo. To me this ties for favorite breakfast with a hot bowl of mom's phở bò.

tamarind chili mexican candies?

thanks paulj, i've seen some tamarind powders in asian markets but they are typically tamarind blended with a lot of other spices. after a quick online search for it, it seems easier to simply order the candies online!

tamarind chili mexican candies?

Does anyone have a recipe for mexican tamarind / chili powder dusted sweets? What is the best kind of chili powder to use (achiote? pasilla?), and do you use tamarind powder or paste? have been craving this flavor since returning from a first communion in san luis potosi... thanks!
