Check out the bottom right hand corner of this magazine cover – “Latino Comfort Food”. Those are some of our treasured recipes that have been published in Latina Magazine. We are honored beyond belief to say the least, and excited to share the news with you our fans. Latina Magazine asked us to submit some of our family recipes traditionally eaten in April. The first thing that came to mind was Lent Fridays at Grandma’s house. If you knew our grandma, you know that every Friday was enchiladas coloradas (red enchilada) day.
Our family prefers our enchiladas montadas (stacked) but not all of our family members like their enchiladas with an egg on top. When I was a young girl I would watch my uncle Carlos eat his enchiladas with an egg on top and I finally had the courage to ask him if I could have a taste. It was love at first bite and I never turned back. The yummy yolk running down the stack of enchiladas gives this dish a unique flavor.
We have never released the recipe for our grandma’s chile colorado (red chile sauce) until now. Our enchiladas, frijoles de la olla (pot of pinto beans), and michelada recipes are all featured in Latina Magazine in the April 2011 edition. It’s all quite surreal, but we’d like to thank Latina Magazine for taking the time to recognize our efforts and honor our grandmother and her cooking in such a prestigious fashion. Muchas gracias Latina Magazine!!
