I am afraid my love of cooking ends when the temperature outside gets above 90. We are in full air condition mode here at the Silbaugh house. It has been almost a year since we have turned on the air conditioning, since it is mid 70's year round here. Alas, the heatwave has made it's way to Southern California and I am not left to slave over a hot stove, when a scoop of ice cream just sounds a whole lot better.
Since I have no appetite at all from the heat, I am making the boys their beef. I had made a tortilla pie last week that was vegetarian, so not it is their turn. This recipe was a huge hit. They loved the blend of flavors. My husband, who I like to call "cast iron gut" didn't even put his hot sauce on it. If you are looking for stock to buy, Cholula is a safe bet, since my husband can eat a bottle of it per day. So I was shocked that he ate it just the way I served it! Enjoy!
