Nick posted a fabulous sounding recipe for Estofado de Pollo. I’m picking up on the tomatoes and onions in that.


  • 4 large ripe tomatoes peeled.
  • 1 cup tomato juice
  • 1 cup cucumbers
  • 1 cup red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup onions
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • salt to taste

You’ll need some finely chopped cucumbers, bell peppers and scallions for garnish. I also love to serve this with sliced avocado.

Put all the ingredients together in the food processor and pulse to blend to a thickness you like. I’ve served it chunky to smooth and it’s good every way. I also usually double or triple the recipe.

Homemade chips

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cut some corn tortillas in 1/4s and brush or spray both sides with olive oil – placing them on a cookie sheet.
  • Lightly salt and add garlic powder.
  • I’ve never timed these, but they cook up pretty fast.
