Spicy Pork Ramen

We love ramen and occasionally miss our Top Ramen soup from home (beef ramen with peas). They don’t sell the Top Ramen brand in Valencia (maybe even in all of Spain). The ramen packages they have here are expensive comparably at 1 to 1,5€ each and somehow they taste absolutely terrible. Luckily, we have anContinue reading “Spicy Pork Ramen”

Hold the Pozole, Pozole Please!

Pozole is a deliciously spicy Mexican soup with hominy (Pozole). What I’m making is a Pozole without hominy, so is it still considered Pozole? The consensus was a resounding “NO”, so I aptly renamed it “Hold the Pozole, Pozole Please!” OMgosh, I think I’ll be saying that word in my sleep for the next coupleContinue reading “Hold the Pozole, Pozole Please!”
