Green Chile Frito Pie

Frito pie is traditionally chili meat, cheese poured into a snack-sized sack of Frito chips cut open sideways. This recipe is more of a bowl. I had it at the Plaza Café in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was probably one of the best things I eaten in a long time. I have always been a fan of green Hatch chilies. This Green Chili Frito Pie was so good and VERY spicy, just they way I like it!

Chili Lime Chicken

The Plethora of Peppers
Our lime tree is so full of limes it's drooping to one side. I also have a ton of red chili peppers in a pot, so I marinated some chicken to use some of it up.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Chicken Enchilada Casserole

This is one of our family's Mexican comfort food recipes. I made it easier by cutting up the tortillas instead of rolling them. I also soften the tortillas in the microwave to avoid frying them in oil.
