Here's the recipe… make sure you read the whole thing first!



This is a great recipe that will feed lots of people and it’s great for left-overs.


  • 2 pounds of lean ground beef
  • 3 diced carrots
  • 2 diced potatoes
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • Cumin (to taste)
  • 1 chipotle finely chopped (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup of tomato puree
  • Salt and Pepper


In a big pot or pan saute half of the onions until translucent, add the beef, salt pepper and chopped chipotle. Cook the meat until it’s not pink any more making sure you stir often so it doesn’t clump. In a different pan saute the other half of onions until translucent add the carrots and potatoes. Cook until soft but not mushy, mix the meat and veggie mix in the bigger pot, add the tomato puree, cumin and adjust seasoning. On medium low heat cook a bit longer to integrate the flavors. Serve with a big stack of hot CORN tortillas.

You can also serve refried beans and freshly made green salsa (or from a jar… but not as good).


The easiest way to get some quick and good refried beans is to buy a can of traditional refried beans or black beans, add them to a pan with a little bit of butter and add grated cheese and cumin to them. A little chipotle juice will add some punch too. It will make regular canned beans very good.

Here are the recipes finally. This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time and never got around to it. Some of you know that I love cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. There is a certain alchemy that has to happen in order to have the ingredients turn into delicious creations. There is no real secret behind it, just lots of fresh ingredients, time and patience to try things out and some creativity.

Not everything I make turns out perfect on the first try. Most of the time, even when I follow recipes carefully, there are some adjustments that have to be made in order to make it exactly the way I like it. In some cases recipes have failed miserably and a last-minute plan B has been tackled, and in other cases I had to toss the first batch of something and repeat the steps until it works out.

I hope these recipes bring a lot of magic to your meals, just as they have brought magic to mine. They have all been thoroughly tested and I will never post something I have not made myself. Some adjustments may have to be made for dietary preferences or limitations. Feel free to email me or drop me a note if you have any questions.
