…Fresh Chili Peppers!

P52 35 of 52 Summer is

 He-Man picked up a variety of chili peppers at the Farmer’s Market to make his Salsa. This batch is packing some heat that sweetens as it cools, and it has a good after-taste. We snacked on chips & salsa, and chased it down with little bottles of Corona Extra with a lime slice on top which you can’t see. Actually this turned out to be my dinner that night. Miam, miam!

Hot and Spicy

The Appetizer:  A basket full of Escabeche

I fill up on this stuff. It’s Mexican pickled carrots, onions, garlic, and red new potatoes, with jalapenos, but I don’t get any of those.  Those are too hot and spicy for me. I also get a few fresh radishes.  I munch on this while I wait for my entrée.

A Soft Veggie Taco-Two corn tortillas piled high with tender, pink Pinto beans, Spanish rice, a wee bit of Guacamole, pico de gallo, salsa, and garnished with a slice of fresh tomato.  I ate the whole thing.

This is my favorite “fast food”.  What’s your idea of “fast food”?
