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!

Wine lover. Oenophile. Wanna-be-sommelier. Mom. Mommy. MA-MAAAAA!!!!!! Grocery shopper, budding nutritionist, dish scrubber, meat cutter. My love of wine started in my mid-twenties. I have no formal training, just a decent palatte and a desire to learn. And I am pretty good in the kitchen. The more I learn, the greater the desire to educate myself through articles, blogs, travel, and surrounding myself with others who like to discuss wine. When things calm down (what's that?) in my life, I may choose a formal education in the arena, but for now, I will taste, share, and taste some more. My descriptors may or may not be "correct." My pairings may wow, surprise, or may not "work." But, the best learning is through trial and error, right? Especially when the "trial" means drinking more wine. So, if you are up for a little wisdom about wine, and a lot of wine-induced wisdom, come along for the ride
