Many thanks to Elizabeth at Weird and Surprisingly Good for choosing Latin foods as our weekly theme! Love it. I’m assuming we’re including all of Central and South America.
Quinoa, a Peruvian grain, is always a staple in my diet because it’s such a great source of vegetarian protein and fiber (and super yummy!). And cassava crackers, or Casabi, are from the Dominican Republic and just about perfect for someone who is allergic to most things because the ingredients are…cassava. Too bad they’re so hard to find in the US now.
And, of course, this is a perfect opportunity to make Jude’s Braised Chicken with Ancho Chilis because I’ve been eying it for ages!
Last week was a tasty one. I made a chocolate sweet potato cake which had great consistency…but still had a slight funky taste, so it needs more work. My new project is also perfecting crackers, because I’m a woman on a mission.
