Chipotle Pepper Marinade

Hi gang –

Quick and dirty video for a quick and dirty marinade.  I’ve used this on chicken and pork, in both the crockpot and in the oven (after an overnight marindae).  Pardon the random ourbursts, Marc Broussard will do that to a guy.

Suitcase Kitchen Episode 4: Paleo Tortillas (Previous Cinco de Mayo Post)

Suitcase Kitchen Episode 4!!  I have to give a special thanks to those that were kind enough to let me use their video in todays post.  Let’s be clear, these are easy and it simply doesn’t take that much time to make.  So, you get some filler – Enjoy!

As for the application of these burritos, you’ll find one such example below from a previous post.  The modification in the video is different than the recipe below because I needed something with less fat for the Zone Diet I had been working to stay on.

Happy burrito-ing!

Mexican FEAST! Paleo burritos revisited, bananas, plantains, adobo sauce

Burritos speak to me.  Handheld edible wrappers of deliciousness.  Game on.  The problem is, store bought tortillas aren’t great if your’re avoiding flour and corn tortillas, well, suck.  The little feast took a fair amount of work, but it’s worth it!  Previously, I did a little Cinco de Mayo feast that can be found here.  Disclaimer, there’s a fair amount of steps, so take short cuts as needed.

As for the filling:

  • Once the peppers and onions were done:
  • Add 1C rice/quinoa mixture
  • Add 1C beans
  • Add 1/2 C adobo sauce
  • Add 1 mashed banana
  • Add 1lb cooked ground pork (cooked with ~ 1/2C adobo sauce previously)
  • Add 1/2c water
  • Add spices (1tbsp chili powder, 2 tsp salt, 2 tsp cumin, 2 tsp cayenne, 1 tsp black pepper)
  • Simmer
  • Each burrito can accomodate ~ 1.25C of filling and is roughly a 5 block zone meal

Once everything has cooked together for 5-10 min, start making your burritos and save for later.

Happy feasting!
