Nancy Ford’s Delicious Meat Loaf

1 lb ground beef (Nancy uses local grass fed)

1 small onion, minced
1 small red or green bell pepper minced
1 1/4 tsp chili powder

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in medium skillet and cook the onion and bell pepper until soft stirring often – about 7 minutes.
Mix the meats together – use fork or hands. Combine eggs, salsa, chili powder and salt. Add to the meat and mix. Add the oatmeal and continue mixing. Make two oval loaves and place in a shallow pan with sides. I put a light coating of catsup on top.
Bake at 375 for about 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Back to School Time is Upon Us

That hectic back to school time is upon us – homework, football practice, parent-teacher meetings. You need a big post of fast happy food that the older kids can microwave. How about a big pot of spaghetti sauce made with Piemonte Sausage. Cantalupo, Bernie’s Sweet (Mild) and Bernie’s Fennel and Hot are naturals, but we know a family who uses Chicken-Apple for a lighter sauce

Delicious Piemonte Sausage Chorizo Mexicano Enchiladas

Delicious Piemonte Sausage Chorizo Mexicano Enchiladas

Total Prep: 1 hour, 45 mins
Yield: 6 servings
Ingredients
⦁ 3/4 pound potatoes, cut in half
⦁ 1t salt, divided
⦁ 1 tablespoon olive oil
⦁ 1 onion, sliced into 1/4″ rings
⦁ 1 t ground cumin
⦁ 1/2 t dried oregano
⦁ 1 pound fresh Piemonte Chorizo Mexicano sausage, casings removed & crumbled
⦁ 1 28-ounce can red enchilada sauce
⦁ 12 corn tortillas
⦁ 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
⦁ 1 tomato, chopped
⦁ 1 handful of cilantro, stems removed
⦁ 2 green onions, sliced
⦁ 1/2 cup sour cream
Instructions
⦁ Put the potato halves in a saucepan with 1/2 t salt and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes until the potatoes are done, but firm and easily pierce with a fork. Drain and let cool. Dice into 1/3″ cubes. Set aside.
⦁ In a skillet, heat 1 T olive oil and saute onions with 1/2 t salt, cumin and oregano, about 6 minutes. Add crumbled chorizo and cook stirring until chorizo is done, about 6-8 minutes. Add diced potatoes and cook until the edges of the potatoes begin to crisp, another 5 – 6 minutes or so. Remove from heat and set aside.
⦁ Put the enchilada sauce in one skillet and place on the stove. Heat on medium low until hot. Reduce heat to very low to keep warm
⦁ Ladle about 1/3 cup of enchilada sauce into the bottom of a 13 x 9 x 2″ rectangular or a 12″ round baking dish and spread it around to coat the bottom of the dish.
⦁ Now you begin the assembly of the enchiladas. Take one tortilla dip it in the red sauce to coat both sides. Remove the tortilla from the sauce and place it on the plate you will use to assemble the enchiladas. Put about 1/3 cup of the chorizo and potato filling down the center of the tortilla. Top with about 1 T of the shredded cheese. Roll up like a cigar and lay seam-side down in the baking dish. Continue until all the enchiladas are assembled and nestled side-by-side in the baking dish.
⦁ Pour about 1 cup of the remaining sauce over the enchiladas. Sprinkle the center of the enchiladas with the remaining cheese and bake for 20 to 30 minutes until heated through and cheese has melted.
⦁ Garnish with chopped tomatoes, cilantro leaves, green onions, sour cream and/or guacamole.
