Mom was coming over for Sunday dinner and she had requested cornbread. She wouldn't tell me what kind of cornbread she enjoyed most and wanted me to surprise her. She grew up in Eastern Kentucky and is southern to the core. I grew up eating her cornbread and to this day still remember my dad's favorite before bedtime mix of cornbread in a glass of ice cold milk.

A couple of the kids wanted sweet cornbread. I ended up making three kinds.

Back Left: Sweet Cornbread cooked in a cast iron Dutch oven.
Front: Traditional Unsweetened Cornbread cooked in an 8" Lodge Cast Iron Skillet.
Right: Sweet Jalapeno Cornbread cooked in my moms cast iron corn mold pan.
All pans were preheated in the oven and coated with bacon grease.

Mom, son, and daughter number ones  favorite was the traditional, one teenage daughter and her friend liked the sweet best, my wife's favorite was the Jalapeno. I liked them all.



Smoked skinless, boneless, chicken thighs. The darker pieces were on the lower rack of the smoker:



Mom likes smoked salmon, so I smoked a nice fillet:

Grilled chicken breasts, coleslaw and baked beans.  I think I mentioned some time ago I bought one of the Lodge Hibachi grills.  These are a little slower than a covered grill but the taste is great and the meat is tender.  It just takes a while to cool off so you can clean it up.

refried beans with cheese, shredded pork with chilies, and homemade fry bread.

everything from scratch except the chilies and the beans were from a can. (i'm trying to convert my wife on the canned chilies, it's a slow process...)

I got no pictures.   :-[

We had wild turkey, dressing, french cut green beans, gravy, and cranberry/apple sauce.  It was great and brought back memories of getting that one awhile back in the woods.

Here in NM we call that an Indian taco or a Navajo taco. It looks like a tasty meal.

Yep, it does look good.

There is a common misconception about food from NM, there is a difference between new Mexican food, tex-mex, and "Mexican food". Tradional new Mexican food uses only one type of chili the Anaheim chili. My dad , who grew up in northern nm did not what a " burrito" was until he moved to California in the late fifties, not that he had not eaten them, it is that he had never heard the word before. Chili here in nm is a sauce, green or red. When chili harvested while it is still green it is roasted and then peeled, chopped and then a sauce is made. Red is traditionally dried and then later rehydrated , and then chopped.

Fried bread, or sopapillas, I think I that is the correct spelling, is definitely traditional nm food.

Today here in the state we put chili in everything from bagels, burgers, pizzas, and eggs, usually green but sometimes red.  If you guys are ever in Albuquerque go to Sadie's, IMO the best nm food in the city, and their salsa while delicious, will remove paint lol.

Well I'll be.......ya' learn something every day on here! :P    I thought sopapillas were always a 'sweet' type of bread served as a dessert, but now I know 'the rest of the story, thanks to Orbean. :cheers:  I did a search for additional information and found this entry.......

The History of Sopapillas
Sopapillas are a popular Hispanic dish in South America and New Mexico. The deep-fried pastries can be served as a dessert, covered with honey or syrup, or as an entree, stuffed with meat, cheese and peppers.
About
A sopapilla is a crispy, deep-fried pastry. It is often served covered with honey or syrup. The pastry is common in Hispanic culture and is a favorite among many Hispanic cuisines. Sopapillas can be served salty or sweet.
Origination
Sopapillas are thought to have originated in Albuquerque, New Mexico, more than 200 years ago. There are a few stories attributed to the name of the pastries. It is thought to come from the Spanish word ?sopaipa,? which is used to refer to sweetened fried dough, or from the word ?xopaipa,? which means bread soaked in oil.
South American Sopapillas
Sopapillas are popular in Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. They can be eaten salty or sweet. In Chile, when sopapillas are eaten sweet, they are fried and then dipped in chancaca, a black beet sugar, and cinnamon. If they are eaten salty, they can be eaten with ketchup or mustard.
New Mexican Sopapillas
New Mexican sopapillas are made from tortilla-like dough. The dough is fried until it is puffy and a small air pocket appears within the pastry. In New Mexico, sweet sopapillas are often covered in honey or some kind of syrup and powdered sugar. Stuffed sopapillas are also popular in New Mexico. They are prepared the same way but instead of honey and sugar, the pastries are stuffed with ingredients such as refried beans, cheese, peppers and meat.
Facts
Sopapillas are popular in New Mexican cuisines and are served in almost every New Mexican-style and Tex-Mex restaurant. Mexican cuisines doesn?t usually include sopapillas, but have a dish called bu?uelo, a very similar sweet pastry type food.
This tasty, classic dish is popular because of the different routes you can take with it. Whether you?re looking to stuff your Sopapilla with meat, beans, honey, sugar, or cheese, this dish is sure to please your taste buds!

I am well known far and wide for my sopapilla green chili cheese burgers that I make on hunting trips lol. To fry the bread you need 350 degree oil in a heavy pan. I use a deep cast iron skillet.  To make the burgers use sopapillas for the buns. I like a lot of fresh garlic with green chili, the garlic really enhances the chili taste. If you can make the sopas and fry them using lard all the better.

I just ate lunch and you guys are making be drool!  In Texas, we have Tex-Mex which is often not of Mexican origin at all.  Fajitas are purely a Texas dish.  We do have several different chilies available in most Super Markets, though, including Habaneros. I don't mess with that variety.

Made some pulled pork in the electric smoker today. Just a small roast. Came out really good. Lots of leftovers to make nachos. I keep the sauce off the pork itself and only apply it to the sandwiches. That way the meat is still smoky and salty without the saucy sweetness. It makes some outstanding nachos.
