Booze and Food Recipes

From a few weeks ago, but still fun and worth sharing.

The Mingin' Murphy:

2 parts vodka
1 part Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur
2 parts Voyant Chai Liqueur
1 part chai tea concentrate

Combine in shaker, add ice and shake after the glasses are prepared (next step).

Rim glass with a warm mixture of honey and water, then drag through ground cinnamon.

Pour drink into glass, add a drizzle of cream, and garnish with a cut and split vanilla bean.



Mexican Pizza:

Broil, for 5-10 minutes:
some halved tomatillos
several colors of halved bell pepper
halved pasilla pepper
some thinly-sliced white onion drizzled with olive oil

Combine in a food processor the following:
the roasted tomatillos
some roughly chopped carrot
1/2 serrano
1/2 jalapeno
the roasted pasilla

Reserve half of this salsa. This, by itself, is quite hot.

Combine in a food processor the following:
some freshly diced tomatoes
tomato paste
salt and sugar to taste
the other half of the tomatillo salsa

Simmer this tomato-tomatillo-sauce for a bit.

Brown in an olive-oiled saucepan:
diced pork
season with cumin, chili powder, and anything else you're fond of

On a tinfoil-covered cookie sheet, start with a large (10" or larger) tortilla.
Top, in this order, with the following:
the tomato-tomatillo-sauce
shredded pepper jack cheese
cooked pork
roasted onions
sliced roasted bell peppers
diced fresh tomato
dabs of the reserved tomatillo salsa

Bake in a 350ยบ oven for 12ish minutes.

After removing from oven, top with sliced fresh avocado and some chopped cilantro.

Actually quite healthy.

Slice and enjoy.
