Mole Beef Tacos with Napa Cabbage Pico de Gallo
Crunchy cabbage mixed with fresh pico de gallo and a touch of sweet/crunchy apple, pear or mango matches well with the rich beef mole for an awesome all-natural homemade taco. Choose soft or crispy corn tortillas, whatever suits your fancy.

Slow Cooker Beef Mole

Slow Cooker Beef Mole
Slow Cooker Beef Mole is one of the most delicious recipes I have developed in a long time. I mixed the  stewing beef with Larry's Mole Sauce, set the slow cooker and went out. When I returned the house was filled with the most heady aroma of chocolate, chiles and beef. And the taste was just as nice. In this case I made a side order of yellow zucchini squash and white rice.
Another plus for the recipe is that you can make  beef mole tacos with any leftovers. But if you want leftovers, you might want to double the recipe.

2 pounds stewing beef, cut into one inch cubes
1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper
1 16 oz jar of Larry's Mole Sauce 
1 cup white of brown rice
Water to cover by one inch
1 teaspoon vegetable cooking oil
2 cups chopped yellow zucchini squash


  1. Season the beef  with the salt and pepper. Place it in the slow cooker.
  2. Pour one jar of Larry's Mole Sauce over the beef and stir to blend.
  3. Cover the slow cooker and set it to cook for 6 or more hours. 
  4. Make the rice according to package instructions.
  5. Saute the squash in the oil over medium heat until just cooked. 
  6. Spoon the beef mole, the rice and squash onto plates and serve.
Serves 4.

Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken

Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken is an easy way for you to prepare a deeply delicious meal with a slightly smoky spiciness. I always use thighs, legs or wings for this dish because I think the breast tends to dry out in the slow cooker. Serve this all-natural treat with some brown or white rice and squash or corn for a great Mexican meal.

2 pounds boneless chicken thighs
1 teaspoon each salt and pepper
1 16oz. jar of Larry's Southwestern Chipotle Sauce

Place the chicken thighs on a cutting board and season with the salt and pepper. Place them in a slow cooker.
Pour Larry's Chipotle Sauce over the poultry and stir to blend well.
Set the slow cooker to 4, 6 or 8 hours based on your schedule. Recipe will come out the same for any cooking time.
When the poultry is cooked, make the rice and vegetables according to package instructions.
Place a scoop of rice in a bowl, cover with the Chipotle Chicken and sauce, and scoop a serving of vegetables in on the side. 

Serves 4.

Migas Texican Omelette

Migas Texican Omelette

I first ate migas at a diner/restaurant in downtown Austin after a great night listening to country music at the Armadillo World Headquarters. Then again in Austin after a great night dancing at the Broken Spoke.
I use tortilla chips, fresh jalapeno or ancho peppers and Larry's Ranchero Sauce to make migas and I think they taste pretty good. 

1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
1 or 2 medium-sized fresh jalapeno
1 1/2 cups chunky crushed tortilla chips
1/2 cup Larry's Ranchero Sauce
4 eggs, stirred
1/2 cup grated cheddar, cotija or Monterrey Jack cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons minced cilantro, as garnish
2 wedges lime

  1. Fry the minced jalapeno in the vegetable oil in a medium non-stick skillet.
  2. Add the tortilla chips and cook for two minutes over medium heat.
  3. Add the Larry's Ranchero Sauce and cook for one minute.
  4. Add the eggs and cook one minute.
  5. Add the cheese, salt and pepper and cook another minute, stirring until the eggs are scrambled. 
  6. Spoon on to two plates, sprinkle the cilantro over and serve with a wedge of lime. 
Serves 2.
