often by the time i am in need of a trip to the farmers market, i am usually left with a few remaining random things in my fridge. in this episode of ‘cleanin’ out my fridge’ i luckily found the makings for chorizo tacos:

  • chorizo sausage (from lindy + grundy)
  • corn tortillas
  • green + red cabbage, chopped thin
  • green onion, sliced thin
  • cilantro, chopped well
  • adobe chile sauce
  • sour cream

remove chorizo from the casing (if there is one), and sauté, breaking up into small pieces until cooked through. meanwhile pre-heat your oven to 275º, and place the corn tortillas right on the rack to warm. divide sausage among the tortillas, and garnish with cabbage, green onion, cilantro, chile sauce and sour cream.

the only thing that would have made these better was if the tortillas were from guisado’s, and not from crummy whole foods. i can only hope armando would be impressed with this quick creation.


if eminem can clean out his closet, and make a single go platinum…

…i figure the least i can do is clean out my fridge, and make a quick delicious meal. i often find myself at the end of a week with not necessarily no food in my fridge, but an odd assortment of things. tonight i found these things in my kitchen:

i defrosted the shrimp quickly by running under cold water. then drained and blotted them well with paper towels, and tossed them in cornstarch.  i sliced the garlic thin, cut the pepper and flower chive into bite-sized pieces. i heated some coconut oil in a pan, and sautéed the garlic until fragrant, added the shrimp and cooked for a couple of minutes. i added the pepper, cabbage and chive and stirred to mix for a few minutes. squirted on some sriracha, tamari, and honey to taste, and tossed to coat. finally, i sprinkled in some sesame seeds and put over rice.

i might switch up the veggies, or condiments a bit, but it usually takes on an asian flare.

note: this post is dedicated to my dad who introduced me to lots of great music (including eminem), was an inspiring improvisational cook, and would have been 70 on august 28, 2011. happy birthday pops!
