So, the chicken has still not thawed sufficiently to be cooked. So, chicken will get roasted another day.
Just as well. I discovered, in the absence of suitably thawed roaster, that while I might prefer chicken as empanada filling, my spicy ground beef mixture is absolutely delicious as filling for papas rellenos.
Which basically means coating my tasty spicy beef filling with mashed potatoes, flouring lightly and sauteing ever so slightly.
Which meant going to the grocery store, as mashed potatoes were not something I had on hand.
Which meant also going in search of something else, if only for documentation purposes. So after a wrong turn down the “Mexican Food” aisle, I found what I was looking for, two aisles over, in “Spanish Foods” –
I also snapped this shot (because once you’re the weird lady in the grocery store, you might as well REALLY be the weird lady in the grocery store):
Little help here… are the color variations just decorative, or are there actual differences? And how do I know which one to use for what?!? Does ANYONE know this?
