Briarpatch Co-op:Cooking Classes

Traditional Mexican Dinner

with Jim E.

Discover how simple it can be to create south-of-the-border favorites from scratch in your own kitchen. Our main dish will be Pastel Azteca: layers of tortilla and zucchini-tomato-corn mixture with cream and grilled cheese. We will also make Creamy Black Bean Soup and Mini Tostadas using corn chips spread with poblano strips, shredded chicken breast in chipotle sauce, or beef cooked with diced carrots, peas, and cumin. Served with Green Rice and Green Tomatillo Hot Sauce. We may have time for a simple fruit or ice cream dessert, but will we have room for it in our tummies?
