Greece y Tex Mex

A few nights ago I started to marinate Chicken tenders in Greek Dressing and my homemade Adobo sauce made from the fresh Guajillo peppers. This evening the tenders were ready to to turn into a fabulous snack. It has been an hour and I can still taste the marvelous flavors I created. I heated the tenders in the marinade until they were cooked.Diced the tenders into bite size pieces and tossed in marinated Fresh Mozzarella balls.

The marinated Mozz. balls

1 Quart Mini Mozz. Balls. liquid removed

Cover with Olive Oil

And add 1/4 cup dried Oregano

And finished it with crumbled Saltines


I will find a delightful way to turn this creation into an entree in the next few days. Pat and Elvis from Peas Farm have joined the Local Harvest Blog Barn. Be sure to check them out for news and events from their farm. Peas Farm Conroe


The Tex Mex Challenge

Yesterday I spoke with an acquatance and I was challenged to create a Tex Mex Taco. Never really new what Tex Mex meant . I learned their is California Tex Mex and Tex Mex. So I needed to refine my search and stick to information that has its origins in Texas. I believe I have done that. Currently I experimenting with a recipe that includes Adobo sauce , Chipolte peppers, Corn , Black Beans, Cilantro and meat { Chicken-Beef-Sausage} I went to 2 grocery stores on my way home from work searching for the Guajillo Pepper and came up empty handed . The{ Gway-Hee-yoh } pepper will be used to create an authentic Adobo sauce. I  will entice the gal that sent me on a wild goose chase to bring me a pepper so I can see it and then maybe I can find it . I think they may change the name in American grocery stores , not using the same name you would use in an Hispanic market place. Tonight I cheated and bought Chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce.I will enlist Peas Farm to help me find the elusive Guajillo pepper and I will buy them at SamMarket on a future Saturday in downtown Conroe.  I plan on making all the Tex Mex ingredients from scratch using the freshest ingredients. I have made and tasted my first attempt, Finding it both spicy and fruity. But until I share my experimenting with my friend I will not know if I am creating what he is looking for. I also decided to tone down the heat by adding my SamM salsa that you would have read about in previous Blogs. {Tomato , Onion, Balsamic vinegar etc..} It is challenges like this constantly inspire me. I will create the finest Tex Mex Taco in Houston-Conroe Texas.
