Perk up those taste buds with this week’s box, which comes complete with locally-made, hand-pressed tortillas, buttery Mayocoba beans and tamales crafted with tender, slow-cooked chicken in fragrant mole sauce. Also starring fresh, seasonal produce such as sweet corn, heirloom tomatillos, Poblano chile peppers, limes and Watermelon radish to serve in some stunning sides (see recipes for ideas!), as well as Medjool dates, kiwi berries, farm-fresh eggs and escarole greens, this Southwest-style box is absolutely packed with flavor. Enjoy!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Fresh Corn Salsa
This crisp salsa is brightened with smoky chiles and fresh lime juice.
Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
Great served with chips, or mixed into rice, this awesome salsa also makes excellent sauce for enchiladas!
Watermelon Radish & Arugula Salad
Top this crisp combination with a garlic-lemon dressing and freshly-grated Romano cheese.
Spicy Heirloom Tomatoes
Topped with sweet corn and a pinch of cayenne pepper, these juicy tomatoes make a wonderful side salad.
Smoky Southwestern Beans
You can enjoy these beans straight out of the pot, or save and prepare them refried-style later!
Roasted Delicata Squash
Buttery and incredibly delicious, Delicata squash is wonderful roasted with just a touch of brown sugar and red pepper flakes.
