I was thinking of roast chicken for Sunday night’s dinner. Last week, I ran out of ancho chile powder and when I went shopping, I picked up several different ground chilies. Jan had requested bone broth later in the week, so I did not want my chicken to be too spicy.
23andMe is a powerful, but dangerous tool. Jan has assumed she had one father, when in fact there were two. According to her genes, Jan’s ancestry is ¼ Iberian and ¼ Cora—although they refer to themselves as Naáyarite—an indigenous tribe that lives in the mountainous region of along the Jalisco / Nayarit border of north Pacific coast Mexico—although much of Jan’s extended family has moved to the coast.
Jan has requested chili rellenos to go with my molé chicken this Sunday. A quick look at recipes on-line told me that it is a fussy recipe that has several steps fraught with peril. You have to broil, deseed, and then stuff the chilies without breaking them. Then you have to coat them in a egg batter and deep fry them, still without breaking the chilies or having the coating fall off.
