Have a great month!  JANE BUTEL



Jane's Message                             July, 2011

4th of July fireworksI hope your July 4th was a great time to be with family and friends and enjoy summer’s bounty. I think so often, we get stuck in a rut when it comes to menu for get togethers, so I am sharing a favorite concept of mine.

I have found that creative tacos are finding such a surge in popularity. This month, our demonstration class was Taco-Mania and it had the highest registration level of any of the classes we have had since we started teaching these this year.

With this popularity—I thought each of you just might like having the recipes for my favorite tacos and more! I like to set up a large platter of toppings—pickled cole slaw (Nine Day Cole Slaw recipe), red and green salsas, sour cream, pickled jalapeno chiles and perhaps grated or crumbled cheese(I frequently omit the cheese). And, yes—I like cabbage much better than lettuce for meat laden tacos. My favorite is slow roasted Pork Shoulder—it is amazing—so tender, juicy and delicious.

By the way—I never fry the taco shells any more—I prefer warmed freshly made corn tortillas. I generally warm them in a plastic bag for a minute for 8 corn tortillas.

Fish tacos of almost any kind are wonderful too—from seared Ahi tuna or salmon to tilapia or crispy coated fish sticks for a really quick and nutritious taco.

For a delicious side dish, try our Lime Rice and perhaps more of our wonderful Nine Day Cole Slaw.

My dessert for the fourth was a  yummy Gingered Cherry Crisp topped with French Vanilla Ice Cream. And, the cherries came right off my tree—which was loaded to the “nines” this year with fabulously flavorful Montmorency pie cherries. I bet your local Farmer’s Market just might have these cherries still for sale.

I am teaching our annual July week long class, starting July 10 and it is not too late to register..I am offering the last few spaces at half price or $975.00—an amazing deal that you may never see again!!

Order our fresh pure chiles for great chili, barbecue and summer fun eating. Remember—lots of red

Red Chile in a dish gives it greater keeping quality—as red chile is the world’s best anti-oxidant.
