Mancha Mantel -- something new to me

Can't Post | Private Reply
Today's cooking story from Adriana's kitchen is mancha mantel. It's pork, chicken and fruit in a chile colorado salsa with nuts. Mighty fine eating.

This may be the last cooking show of the season. It's getting too hot for me in the kitchen. We'll be back when the fall breezes blow. For your summer viewing pleasure, you can enjoy reruns at your leisure; there are 54 of them to choose from at http://rollybrook.com/kitchen.htm.

Rolly this looks absolutely wonderful! (I made my first home made refried beans this week. I was very excited to learn this and they were quite yummy)

My now-85-year-old mother has made "manchamanteles" (at least that's what we called them) for years, recipe learned from our maids in Mexico City in the 50's. It is still one of our favorite family recipes and made almost exactly as described here. Interesting that there seems to be so little variation.... Yummm....!!!!!

Yes, manchamanteles is the traditional name of this dish. Adriana's version looks wonderful.
