Happy Cinco De Mayo!
My homemade canned bases: Red salsa and Verde. Then I build it up with fresh.
Some fixings: For tamales and enchiladas
Tamales in pan and rice mix sauté to brown before simmering with Costco chicken stock. Tip, spray all casserole pans for easy clean up after.
This is awesome goodness. When making homemade food, nothing has salt so I use this base and other flavors to add salt to my dishes. Ad’s another depth.
Simmer any type of dehydrated peppers in Costco stock to reconstitute them and then blend them in your vitamix from Costco! Deseed them first.
Previously smoked pork in a corn tortilla “enchilada”, Costco premade tamale all topped with the enchilada sauce. Homemade black beans and Costco blended rice mix made with Costco chicken stock and secret seasoning.
What’s For Dinner:
I pulled this at a 155 degrees, but actually wanted to pull it at 135. It rose to 161, to high for our liking but it still was moist. This was to eat fresh for tonight and the rest for lunch meat.
Costco Brawts left over from last weekend to go in the smoker for snacks
Costco organic salad mix and romaine along with parmesan to make a Caesar salad
Lets begin. I bought several bags while on sale along with the lighters.
Side Tip: Leftover: use for this is going for sandwiches/lunch meat. Stay tuned for what I use my leftovers/repurpose into other meals and ideas for freezer meals. It’s bulk, lets use it up and save.
Done, was good.

The Cheddar Cheese used in this from Costco, holds up well, lasts long too. The bread is the new one out “white” from Dave’s killer bread also at Costco.
