Oven Kalua Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
I was so excited to try this recipe that I even ordered the Hawaiian sea salt on line so that it would be just right. But I was really disappointed in the way it turned out. The meat was tender and juicy, but very bland as if it had no seasoning at all. I ended up simmering the shredded meat in some of the juices from the pork as well as sauteed garlic, onion, salt and a touch of cumin, reducing the liquid completely. I then served it Mexican style in corn tortillas with verde salsa. After all this it ended up tasting great.

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
This is very good for a canned bean recipe. I'm not usually a fan of canned beans! The only changes I made were to add a lot more cilantro than the recipe calls for and I simmered the beans for about an hour. The 5 minutes isn't nearly enough. Served over white rice and it was very tasty! Thanks.

Fresh Salsa I

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
This is very good! I reduced the recipe to make about half the servings of the original recipe. I omitted the canned whole tomatos and used only 2 cans of mild canned tomatos and green chilis, drained. (I can't imagine using the hot rotel AND adding jalapenos!) I added 3 roasted jalapenos with seeds, 1 small onion, 1 large garlic clove, a big handful of cilantro, juice from 1 lime, sugar, salt and just a pinch of cumin and gave it a couple of whirls in the blender and refridgerated overnight. Yum! The salsa was still very hot, which I like, but you may want to use only one or 2 jalapenos. This is my salsa recipe from now on!

Chicken Tinga Tostados

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
I love spicy food but this was HOT! And I even decreased the chipotles by about 1/2. The peppers were overwhelming and really all you could taste.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
I make refried beans all the time and I thought I had my recipe down, but I have to say that though more simple with less ingredients than my own, these beans are THE BEST! The only change I made was I used chicken broth instead of water, which I believe made for richer and yummier tasting beans. Because of the chicken broth, I also reduced the amount of salt. This is how I will make my beans from now on!

Cola Pot Roast I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
I wasn't sure what to expect just from reading the recipe. I stuck pretty much to the recipe with just a few minor changes. I used the Italian seasoned stewed tomatos, cut the salt down to 1 tsp., used garlic powder instead of garlic salt and added 2 cloves garlic finely chopped. I let this simmer in a pot for 4 hours. After tasting it I can't really qualify this as a "pot roast" as the meat is shredded. I served this ladled over a mashed potatos and it was really good. Husband loved it! I will definately make this again. Next time I may try it served over rice. Also would be great served in corn tortillas.
