Heat Level
This thick and hearty stew from Durango, one of the northern states, is another Mexican dish that closely resembles chili con carne. A very similar recipe, carne guisada, is given by Jim Peyton in his book, El Norte: The Cuisine of Northern Mexico. We use pork in our version, but beef (or even shredded beef) can be used.
This is Leonore’s answer to the "chicken soup" of the Anglo world. The guajillo chiles can be prepared ahead and kept in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

(Pot of Vegetable Stew with Chiltepins)

Like most stews, this one takes a while to cook, about 4 hours. It is interesting because it contains a number of pre-Columbian ingredients, namely Chiltepins, corn, squash, potatoes, and tepary beans. The spicy heat can be adjusted by adding or subtracting Chiltepins.

This recipe is part of a five-part series devoted to chipotles--those many varieties of smoked chiles. You can go here to start reading--and cooking with--chipotles of all kinds.

This is a typical Portuguese soup, here spiced up by the piri-piris. The sausage often contains piri-piri powder and is the same as the chorizo of Spain and Mexico.

Pomegranates go with green chile too, as demonstrated in this tasty twist on fresh avocado salad. This recipe (and many others) can be found on the "official" pomegranate industry website, www.pomegranates.org, along with the answers to deep existential questions such as "can you eat the seeds?"

Grilling caramelizes the sugar and honey in the sauce, making the fruit sweeter. This is obviously a dessert, but it can be served as a side dish to barbecued ribs, poultry, or fish. Other firm fruits will work, such as peaches or pineapple, but make sure that they are slightly under ripe. It is difficult to grill ripe fruit.

When the aroma of this dish rises up from the cooking fire, it tantalizes the nostrils. For the best results, use a mortar and pestle to combine the ingredients but if you lack such simple tools, use a blender. We thank our friend Richard Sterling for this Cambodian recipe, gathered on one of his extensive Southeast Asian trips.
Here is the favorite hot sauce of the Canary Islands that is commonly 
served over papas arrugadas, new potatoes that are boiled in their skins
in sea water. It is also sprinkled over grilled or crispy fried fish.
Variation: Replace the parsley with freshly minced cilantro and you have
mojo picón de cilantro.
