Burrito de desayuno con huevos, patatas y Cochinita

Recommended Posts

Cochinita? Yeah I’ve got lots of it. How do I use it for leftover? One way is Breakfast Burritos.

 

Here are some onions, potatoes, bell pepper and cochinita all cooked up and ready to go.

Thanks everyone.

 

Bosco, I rarely look at a cook book and don't own one for any of my Mexican cooks. My Mom learned from our neighbor Delores Reyes in Montebello. What she learned was taught to me. A lot of it just rubbed off from eating it so much and growing up with all my friends and their mom’s. (Garcia’s, Rodriquez, Montoya’s) I've also supplemented what I was taught by watching cooking shows and YouTube videos.

If you want to learn real, serious Mexican style cooking, buy any cookbook by Rick Bayless. He grew up in a family of cooks and restaurant owners and became fascinated with Mexican and Latin American culture and cooking. He actually has an undergrad degree in Latin American studies and a graduate degree in Anthropology. He and his wife spent years in Mexico learning the food and culture before he came back to open his restaurants. 

 

His "Mexican Everyday" cookbooks are great and I think they released a 20th anniversary issue of his "Authentic Mexico" a few years ago.

 

Bayless is one of my cooking heroes.

Kara is right on this one. Bayless is great, but my best cooking tips come from my neighbors from Mexico and Bolivia. They cook simply, efficiently, and I swear they are all cooking all day long. Just always something simmering away. Man, I love my neighborhood.

Rick Bayless apart from beign a great cheff is a really cool guy, hanged out with him a couple of years ago, he came into the winery for tasting and ended up fishing in the pond and cooking ceviche for a couple of friends!

A really cool guy!

I'm jealous! :) There are a handful of folks in the food industry who I'm a big fan of - not in a celebrity/FoodTV kind of way, but just in pure respect for their love of the craft and the food.  Bayless is one of them. He seems like he'd be a great guy to hang out with.

      I been wanting to do this for a long time but didn’t have a proper equipment or the correct weather conditions. I recently bought an A-MAZE-N smoking tube.

      It was expected to get down to 41 degrees (fairly cool nights for Southern California) and it was only 67 during the day so I decided to give this a try. Around 4:00 PM I started by cooling the kamado down by placing 5 pieces of Blue Ice in it.

      Around 8:30 it reached 50 degrees outside, so I started up the A-MAZE-N smoking tube in my gasser so as not to heat up the kamado.

      Once it ignited, I let it burn for a few minutes

      before blowing out the flame.

      I let it smoke while I went in and prepared the cheese. I had purchased 2 lbs. of Gouda, Colby Jack and Sharp Cheddar at Costco.

      I took them out of their wrappers.

      I cut them up into smaller sizes so they could absorb more smoke and placed them on a wire rack.

      I then placed the A-MAZE-N smoking tube in the bottom of my kamado. I next put in both of my ceramic heat deflectors, then the grill grates and then the rack of cheese. (You can see some of the smoke coming up around the deflectors)

      I closed the lid and observed a small amount of smoke coming out the top vent.

      An hour later it looked like this.

      After two hours in the smoke I opened the lid. WOW!

      I brought the rack in the house where I could see a subtle change in the cheese color.

      I vacuum packed them all and placed them in the fridge to age and mellow for 3 weeks.

      This morning I when out to see how much of the pellets were left in the A-MAZE-N smoking tube. It looks like approximately 1/3 was left unburnt. I’m thinking it could’ve gone at least another hour.

      I can’t wait to try them but will wait to let time do its thing on them first.
       
      Thanks for looking.

      On New Year’s Eve we had our friends over for dinner.  They were getting up early to go to the Rose Parade so the evening ended early but we still had a great time.

       
      I made 2 pizzas. The first was a Hawaiian Pizza with red onion, black olives, Canadian bacon and pineapple.



       


       



       


      The second was a Meat Lover’s Pizza with red onion, black olives, peperoni and Italian sausage.




       



       



       


      Both were delicious but I have to say the Meat Lovers was my favorite.

       
      Thanks for looking.

      Most of you who’ve been around a few years, know this is the time of year that I go full Griswold. Here’s a pic of my house from a few years ago.

      It gets a little bigger every year. This year I rented a boom to put lights up in our 50’ tall Italian Cypress you can see to the left of our garage. (Sorry no photo of it this year)

       
      Anyway, as is our family’s tradition, we host everyone on Christmas Eve for dinner and presents. In attendance were my two brothers that live here in California. They came down from the L.A. area along with my niece, my nephew and his fiancé. (in addition to my wife and I) We like to vary the meal menu each year. One year we will cook Tamales, (A So. Cal. Christmas staple) the next we’ll do Ham, then Turkey, then a nice Ribeye Roast. We hadn’t had Ham since 2016 so we settled on that.
       
      We were quite busy making all the dinner and fixing’s, so I didn’t have a lot of time to take a whole lot of photos but here are the few that I did get. Here’s the ham on the kamado for the first few hours at 275.

       
      Here’s a pic of the stove with the beans, carrots, potatoes and gravy on top. (Green Bean Casserole and biscuits in the oven)

       
      Here’s the ham after the 2 hours in foil with the pineapple and cherries added for another 10 minutes at 425.

       
      Here’s the ham on the table waiting for the rest of the fixings to join it. (It’s funny but I didn’t realize that this is almost the exact same photo from 2016)

       
      Here’s everyone waiting to dig in.

       
      Here the one photo I got of the food and table. (As you can see we broke out our finest plastic cups for this dinner )

       
      Here’s what everyone looked like when I asked if they could wait for me to take more / better photos of the food.

       
      Everything was delicious and we had a great time that evening.
       
      Merry Christmas everyone and thanks for looking.

      A certain knife dealer site had so good of prices on some nice knives in BD1N stainless that I couldn’t help myself. (It’s a sickness I tell ya!) Anyway, here’s some pics of my new tools.

       
      9” hollow edge craving knife and fork set.



      6” curved boning knife.



      I had a Big Poppa gift certificate I’d won in a throwdown that was burning a hole in my pocket so, I placed a couple of items I didn’t already have in my cart.



      Also added 2 rubs on sale that I thought I’d use a lot.



      I already used the carving knife for Christmas Eve dinner with my family and hope to use the other items real soon.

       
      Thanks for looking.

      We spent Thanksgiving with good friends and neighbors and their family. We were tasked with providing the dressing and a pecan pie. The pie we bought from Costco but for the dressing I made my favorite Cranberry, Apple and Walnut dressing.
      (Recipe can be found here:
      Here are most of the ingredients.

      Melted the butter and sautéed the onions and celery.

      Combined the cranberries, apple and walnuts.

       After the butter, onions, celery, apple cider and chicken stock had simmered 10 minutes I stirred it into the dry dressing and spread it out into the baking/serving dish.

      I covered this with AF and cooked it for 20 minutes at 350 degrees and then uncovered it. I cooked for another 25 minutes at 350 and this is the results.

      Here are some pics of the rest of the dinner entrée’s that we enjoyed.
      Mashed potatoes.

      Miscellaneous sides.

      White meat plate.

      Dark meat plate.

      My plate.

      We had a great time of food and fellowship. Hope you all had a great day as well.
      Thanks for looking.
