I’d give everyone a “Get Out of Jail” card but it wouldn’t be a good idea. Thankful for long walks in our deserted city, very Twilight Zone-ish! Being on house arrest does have its perks, no hair styling required, fashion isn’t important, make-up optional, naps anytime of day, PJ’s mandated, cuddling with pets required and cooking whenever the mood strikes. This is a recipe I have made many times, uncomplicated and heart warming. It is a favorite of Mexican chefs and has a little kick to wake up the metabolism. Enjoy! Bon Appetit, buen proverto.
