Hatch Hongos y Elote- Meatless Monday

So much for freedom.  It is week two and my sweet girl is home sick.  And will be for a while.  Poor thing. At least I get some time to spoil her.

It is Hatch Chile season here and I wanted to get a recipe up for Meatless Monday so if you can forgive the lack of story, here we go.

Hatch Hongos y Elote

Roast 4 Hatch (mild if you want your kids to eat it) chiles and 2 ears of corn

(After roasted, put chiles in a brown paper bag.  The steam helps the skin peel more easily.)

Sauté 1/2 Onion and

1 Package of Baby Portobello Mushrooms (or whatever you have), cut in 1/4 or 1/6

Cut corn off the ears, peel and slice hatch peppers.

Add them to the pan.

Add 1 tsp. Cumin

Salt and pepper to taste

squeeze of lime

Chopped cilantro

Sprinkle of Cotija (or skip to make it vegan)

Serve with warm tortillas (or not if you re gluten-free) and sliced avocado.

Not sure about wine pairings, but a nice cold Pacifico or Margarita would do the trick.  Cheers!

Ok, back to my baby…Happy Monday!

Being a stay- at-home mom can leave one thirsting for a taste of the outside world, a world in which sentences are composed of more than three words. Being an educator means one is always seeking an opportunity to explore and learn. Being a woman with a need to connect can be a challenge when adult conversations are rare. In wine, I find the marriage of art and science, agriculture and storytelling provides limitless areas to explore. But it is the people that keep me engaged. The tenacity needed to keep the family dream alive, the risk to start anew, the trials and principles. I love the history of the vine, the impact of a season, the sentiment in the bottle. That is why I write. I write to tell their stories, to share a piece of mine. I write to learn as I teach others. I write to connect with new friends, to disconnect from the world. I write to celebrate what makes each of us unique, and that which ties us together.
