If you like spicy, I hope you are acquainted with a delightful little yellow can of El Pato tomato sauce. It is loaded with chile, onion and garlic and you can throw that little sweetie over just about anything and get something back that's tasty, easy, and picante!
My weekend dinner for the family was very inexpensive turkey wings rubbed with sweet paprika, several sliced cloves of garlic, salt and pepper. I placed them into my favorite oven braising pot, a Le Crueset oval, poured over one can of Pato, one can of water, plopped it into a 325 degree oven and just let it cook, covered, for several hours. It was falling off the bone, so I turned it down to 250 until dinner. Made some noodles (for the sauce), some fresh broccoli and sliced carrots for my baby (and us) and we ate. And ate. And guess what? Here's a shock - I have leftovers! Grrr.
