I sautéd squash, onions, a purple sweet pepper, and one small red and one small green jalapeno from my CSA box. I didn’t have leftover enchiladas, so I decided to try one of these tamales I bought recently made by White Mountain Foods, a local company that makes excellent tofu products. Their newest addition is tamales – these are vegan.
White Mountain products are available throughout Texas and also in Colorado and California. The tamale is excellent. They keep in the freezer and you just microwave or steam them for one minute. I also got myself some black beans, which aren’t local, unless you count the fact that they came from my local grocer. So here’s my dinner plate.
I also did a taste test of my jalapenos. I had read somewhere that “scarred” peppers are hotter than smooth peppers. For example, the pepper on the right in this picture would be hotter.
