Pardon the shadow on the picture. I didn't think I was blocking the light when I took the pictures last night, but after reviewing them I saw a shadow on all of the completed dish pictures. I would like to think it was my Mom hovering over me as I made this dish vs my poor photography skills!
The reason I say this, and why I chose this dish for this #SundaySupper meal, is because this is one meal that reminds me of my Mom more than anything else I have ever made. You see when I was young, like maybe 5, my babysitter was a little lady from Chihuahua Mexico. She was one of the best cooks I have ever known and I loved sitting with her in the kitchen as she cooked and told me stories about her childhood in Mexico. She used to let me make flour tortillas and stir the pots.
Like I have said, my Mother was not a cook really. But for some reason this lady encouraged my Mom to try. Lord love her that my Mom chose this to be one of the recipes she would go for. I will admit, it is a pretty labor intensive meal. But I just had to have these smells, flavors and memories in my kitchen again. I hadn't made these in 18 years!!
