The Family Cookbook
Culinary Heirlooms
number seventeen
by Doug Anderson

      Welcome foodies, to another edition of The Family Cookbook, where you, the reader, are also the chef. This week I am thrilled to bring you a recipe from my sister, Marlene. It was like pulling teeth, but alas, I finally prevailed and it was well worth the effort. This one may not test well with the more fragile readers, but if you like your food with a little voltage, it's right up your alley. Don your sombrero and get ready for:

Marlene Kaygen's Summery Salsa Tortillas

1 small yellow onion chopped
6-8 ripe tomatoes, diced
1 small bunch cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup diced Jalapeno peppers
salt and pepper to taste

fry fresh corn tortillas,
melt cheese on them while they are in the pan
so that they are crispy
remove and top with browned and seasoned hamburger
and "loads" of salsa.

Sounds scrumptious! Marlene doesn't specify whether she uses fresh or canned jalapenos, but I strongly suggest fresh, although canned would be better for the timid. Thanks for the recipe, Marlene; that didn't hurt so much, did it?

      Speaking of that, it's time for me to get up on my salt box again. The cupboard is very near bare! Since it seems there are some people who just can't be reached, I am appealing to those of you who have submitted once to send something else! Let's keep it going, Bulletin readers!
      See you next week, I hope!
