Unique Flavors I love because of my Dad
I believe this is called huevos rancheros. I didn't have anything in the house for dinner last night, or so I thought. I remembered my dad brought green chili he had made for his visit this weekend so I put this together. I never would of wanted it or thought of it had I not seen my dad put this dish together several times growing up. He served a mission for our church for two years in Mexico. I am not sure if I would love Mexican food as much as I do had I not had his influence. I put this together by placing two fried eggs in between corn tortillas smothered in black beans, cheese, and green chili. I put it in the microwave briefly to melt the cheese. I love the first bite when the fork allows for the egg yolk to mix with the cheese and green chili allowing for a delicious, hot, gooey bite. Yummy!
This is one of my favorite appetizers. I love sliced cheese, summer sausage, and crackers together. This is also because of my father's unique palate. This particular sausage is interesting as it is made from antelope. The preferred condiments for this treat is hot mustard and butter pickles.
Do you have any dishes like this that you consider to be different from the normal flavors you love?
