Home today so I made the traditional friday nite south texas supper: cheese enchiladas, beans and rice.
Frijoles went on this morning right after the second cup of coffee.  Red chili mother sauce made from various dried chilles.  White rice onions and garlic browned,  several tablespoons of the mother sauce added.  Enough mother sauce to make taco belles tomorrow :P

    Looks great, Joan.  Anchos, guajillos and arbols - your chili sauce has a bit of a kick to it. ¿ Sí ?

    There were a couple of New Mexico Reds too. Yes the mother sauce has a kick to it but it is tamed down when used to make the the red gravy for the enchiladas an added to the rice.

    Cn-Tex.  I purchased the Belly at the butchers and had him cut into 3x3 sections.  That is will yield two meals for us.  If you are in the Lake Highlands area there is a La Michoacana store that has a wonderful butcher shop.  They have bellies.  I have never purchased belly at CM.  
    Darn you were correct about the shoppers.  I forgot they won't be opened tomorrow.

    We were in Austin today and skipped CM for that reason. Had a good lunch at Shady Grove.
