TEX MEX RISOTTO

TEX MEX RISOTTO

 Here’s a tasty one for you Galley Peeps.  It was inspired by one of our home delivery plant-based meals.  A simple risotto with a Tex Mex flair. You’ve probably noticed that I’m big on making my own spice mixes.  For one thing, in my tiny galley there’s precious little space for a gazillion spice containers.  And we do love our Mexican type foods so this Tex Mex combo has become a favourite.  We love a little heat too so I…

During the transition of closing in Montreal and closing here in Nova Scotia we have been staying with my daughter, son-in-law and their two kidlings.  I’m getting to my point…really I am… So, one day…

Tonight’s meal was one of those winners…so much so that although I made enough for two servings we both wished we could have gone back for seconds.
