Green Pozole
This is quite similar to the recipe on the back of the "Maiz para Pozole" that you can buy here in Mexico City. Seeing as the recipe is by Herdez, that doesn't surprise me. The big difference in the two recipes is that the Maiz recipe uses several chiles (two different types) and this one uses only one. This is perfect for our family because my kids, while they are adapting, are still not huge fans of spicy food, and this Herdez recipe does a great job of toning it down a bit. We use this recipe often (it's a fairly easy tasty meal, with the slow cooker) and substitute chicken for all the pork as my husband doesn't eat pork (although I made it with all pork when we had guests, because traditionally in Mexico City, pozole is made with pork). I serve it with cilantro and Mexican cheese for our family.

Slow Cooker Chicken Thai Ramen Noodles
Really easy to make for a night when you know you won't be home to cook. I threw all the ingredients in (I used frozen chicken thighs) and let cook on low for about 6 hours. When I got home, I added the ramen noodles for about 10 minutes and served immediately after. It's very hearty, great with a salad (and all the toppings of course). Wonderful with sriracha sauce added for some kick. My whole family loved it (the kids without the sriracha). I'm adding it to my monthly rotation.

Thai Cucumber Salad
There was too much sugar for me. I made it exactly as written (except I substituted Serrano peppers because I couldn't find jalapenos in Mexico City!). I will make again, but I will cut back on the sugar next time - probably half.
