Okay, you guys, I did this recipe for supper tonight, but instead I used:
- 2 lb pork shoulder, ‘cause I didn’t have any chicken
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- 1 cup water
- 1 packet Goya sazon (cilantro y achiote) ‘cause I didn’t have any taco seasoning
- 1/2 tablespoon of ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon devil’s dung
- sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Roasted in my oven at 350 degrees for an hour. I served it with black beans and salsa in a tortillas.
OH MY LORD. ASTONISHING. I’m sure it would be good with chicken, too, but trust me on this—pork works, too!

be still, my beating heart
Protip: To take it to God Tier, try it with other mashed rooty things like yam, sweet potato, turnip, rutabega, parsnip, yucca, taro, celerac, or cassava. They all have unique flavors and textures and you can get awesome new things, but the same techniques will still work!

Blow your MIND” Tomato Basil Pasta! - No Straining, just Stirring
Throw it all in the pot, INCLUDING the uncooked Pasta, and cook! - Bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. The starch leaches out of the pasta and makes a rich, warm sauce for the noodles. The other ingredients cook right along with the pasta
12 ounces pasta (Shown Linguine)
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid ( I used zesty red pepper flavor)
1 large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
2 large sprigs basil, chopped
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth (regular broth and NOT low sodium)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Optional Parmesan cheese for garnish
Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, in a large stock pot. Pour in vegetable broth. Sprinkle on top the pepper flakes and oregano. Drizzle top with oil.
Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated – I left about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot – but you can reduce as desired .
Season to taste with salt and pepper , stirring pasta several times to distribute the liquid in the bottom of the pot. Serve garnished with Parmesan cheese if desired.
great Zeus’s beard this stuff is good. it’s also really easy and cheap and smells wonderful when it’s cooking. MAKE THE THING.
