This may well be my number one favourite of ALL Silver Screen Suppers dishes. I absolutely ADORE this stuff and can eat it by the ladle-ful. Recipe is at the end of this post. I cannot recommend anything else you will find here as highly. Except maybe I will, in a couple of months when the blog will be 10 YEARS OLD. I’m gonna decide on my top 100 dishes Silver Screen Suppers dishes. Or maybe just 10 – ha ha!
I just love it when my kitchen is full of people when I am making them dinner. I threw out a dumb question when I embarked upon slicing the kernels off 6 cobs of corn. “Does anyone know a way of preventing bits of corn flying all over the kitchen when you slice it off cobs?” Nathan came back with the very sensible suggestion of slicing it into a deep bowl. Which I did, my lovely teak salad bowl. Worked perfectly.
So for the main course of my BEST EVER DINNER PARTY I mad the following recipes from:
Lomo borracho (drunken pork loin) – this was a showstopper! I made it with Hammerton Brewery N7 and tequila! Whoosh!!
when I sliced it, there was much admiration… Mmmm CHORIZO!
Frijol de novios (sweetheart beans) – sooooo delicious – with fried onions and chorizo to go on top…
Arroz verde (green rice) (forgot to take a photo but you’ll see it in the murky photo at the very top)
Carne con chile colorado y garbanzos (beef with chile and chickpeas) – on the bottom left of this picture.
Plus aformentioned best of all sweetcorn dishes – Elote Con Crema a la Mexicana – Mary and Vincent Price’s Creamed Corn from A Treasury of Great Recipes (1965)
- In a skillet melt 4 tablespoons butter.
- Add 1 medium onion, chopped (4 tablespoons), and 1 clove garlic, minced. Saute until onion is lightly browned.
- Add the kernels cut from 8 ears of fresh corn, 4 chilies poblanos, thinly sliced, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 3/4 cup diced Swiss or Muenster cheese.
- Cover with a towel and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
Serve the corn with a bowl of sour cream on the side. A generous spoonful on top of each portion is delicious.
