Ken's Kickin' Posole
This is my version of the classic dish. Part soup, part stew but always comforting. Garnish with lime wedges, sour cream, and grated cheese on top.
South Texas Carne Guisada
In this recipe, chunks of lean beef are simmered with fresh tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, garlic, and Mexican seasonings to make a rich spicy gravy (guisada). Serve with warm tortillas and garnish with guacamole, sour cream, and/or cheddar cheese for awesome guisada tacos. If your gravy is too thin, whisk a 1/2 cup of the gravy with 1 tablespoon of flour and stir it back into the meat mixture; cook until the sauce thickens, about 10 minutes.

Best Ever Carne Asada Marinade
This traditional Mexican carne asada marinade recipe will marinade 5 or 6 pounds of meat and can be easily halved or doubled. I've tried many carne asada recipes through the years, and this one outshines them all. The flavors are the most flavorful and authentic and the meat is pull-apart tender. I suggest marinating overnight for the best results. Muy delicioso!
Daddy's 'If They'da had This at the Alamo we would'ha WON!' Texas Chili
My Daddy, 'born and bred' in Texas, came up with this recipe and the name for it. It took some convincing, but I got him to allow me to share the recipe. We love it and hope you do to. Enjoy!!
This is my version of Mexican village gravy. Serve over burritos, with chips, or anything else in which you like Mexican gravy.
Roasted Green Chile Stew
Hearty New Mexico inspired dish that can be made vegetarian simply by omitting the pork. This can be labor intensive and will test your multi-tasking skills if already roasted chiles are not available.
