                          MEAT DUMPLINGS
                          OLLA PODRIDA




     Wash a cupful of rice and put in a double boiler with
     a quart of milk and cook slowly until every grain is
     tender. Shell and blanch a half-pound of almonds, chop
     fine and then pound in a mortar; add, a few drops at a
     time, a half-cupful of cream, forming a smooth paste.
     Mix with this a tablespoonful of sugar, a little
     ground chile and a pint of milk and put all in with
     the cooked rice and simmer for a half-hour. Season
     with salt, and if too thick add more milk.

                     CALDO DE PESCADO

     Chop four onions and fry in four tablespoonfuls of
     oil; add six tomatoes peeled and cut fine, one herb
     bouquet, a sprig of parsley, a glassful of white wine,
     four tablespoonfuls of oil, one chile pepper and four
     tablespoonfuls of flour. When brown add three pints
     of water and boil a half-hour; then add six slices of
     fish of almost any variety. Remove the herb bouquet,
     add salt, and pour over crusts of dry bread.

                       CHILE BISQUE

     Take eight large sweet chile peppers, remove seeds
     and veins, boil and put the pulp through a colander;
     to this add a cupful of boiled rice, mashed smooth.
     Season highly with tabasco and salt. Beat an egg with
     a half-cupful of cream and add to a quart of hot milk.
     Put the bisque in this, let boil up once and serve
     immediately, pouring over toasted squares of bread.


     Cut a pound of young lamb into small chunks and fry
     with a sliced onion in hot lard. When nicely browned
     add three peeled and sliced tomatoes and three green
     peppers chopped fine. Cover with two quarts of water
     and simmer slowly; add a cupful of green peas, one
     of green corn cut from the cob, a half-cupful of
     rice, salt and chile pepper. Work into a raw egg a
     teaspoonful of oil and a half-teaspoonful of vinegar;
     put this in the bottom of the soup-tureen and pour the
     soup over it.


     Into three quarts of good beef stock, put one onion,
     four cloves of garlic and an eighth of a pound of
     salt pork; to this add a cupful of beans and a pound
     of salt codfish which has been soaked overnight. Cook
     slowly, and when partly done, season with _chorizo_
     (Mexican sausage) and add some potatoes peeled and cut
     into dice.

                      MEXICAN NOODLE

     Use two quarts of any clear stock. For the paste,
     take a small cupful of grated Parmesan cheese, one of
     flour, and a little salt and cayenne; beat four eggs
     and add slowly, also a half-cupful of cream, making
     a rather thin batter. Have the stock boiling, and
     let this batter run into it through a very small but
     coarse sieve. It will make long strings which must
     boil ten minutes.


     Fry a large cupful of minced vegetables, mostly
     onions, in a small cupful of butter. When a light
     brown, mix in a small cupful of flour and set the pan
     in the oven for the mixture to brown through without
     burning. Then scrape the contents of the pan into
     three quarts of soup stock and add two cupfuls of dry
     stewed tomatoes, eight cloves, half a bay-leaf and a
     teaspoonful of chopped chile pepper. Cook an hour,
     skimming the top occasionally and season well with





     Put a teaspoonful of lard in a deep porcelain saucepan
     and when hot add a quarter of a pound of ham, chopped
     fine, an onion chopped, salt and chile powder. When
     these are well browned, add a pint of picked shrimps
     and stir until hot; then put in a half-pint of washed
     rice, a bay-leaf, thyme and parsley. Cover and simmer
     with sufficient water added to cook the rice until
     each grain stands out alone.

     Soak the snails in salt water, then wash them in
     two or three waters. Crack the shells and throw
     them in boiling water with a little salt and herbs.
     Cook fifteen minutes, drain from the water and pick
     the snails from the shells. Fry some chopped onion,
     garlic and parsley in olive-oil and add a bay-leaf and
     some thyme. Dry the snails and put in this, with a
     seasoning of salt and pepper, and fry twenty minutes.
     Thicken with a little flour and at the last moment add
     the juice of a lemon.

                  LANGOSTA À LA CATALANA

     Remove the lobster meat from the shell, lay it in a
     bowl, so as to save all the water that comes from
     it, and cut in quarters. Chop four large onions and
     a bunch of parsley, mash four cloves of garlic, and
     fry all together in a half-cupful of olive-oil until
     nearly brown. Season with salt and cayenne; add the
     lobster with all the juice, a cupful of washed rice
     and a tablespoonful of capers. Cook until the rice is
     done. When serving put whole pimientos on top.


     Take the sardines carefully from the box, skin and
     bone them and lay on brown wrapping paper until
     ready to use. Cut strips of bread a little longer
     and a little wider than the sardines, removing all
     crusts. Fry these in olive-oil a delicate brown. Lay
     a sardine on each piece and put in the oven until
     heated through. When ready to serve sprinkle each one
     with grated parmesan cheese and lay a thin slice of
     pimiento on top.

     chopped fine, add a cupful of strained tomatoes, two
     hard-boiled eggs cut fine, one tablespoonful of grated

     Cut a pound of fresh pork into inch chunks and
     parboil. Soak five chiles in hot water, take out the

     (the Mexicans use the _molcajete_ and _tejolote_).
     Pound to a pulp, adding a little garlic, black pepper,
     two cloves and a cooked tomato. Fry this in hot lard;
     then add the meat with some of the liquid in which it
     was boiled and a little salt. Cover and let it cook
     down until rather thick.


     Cut one pound of fresh pork and one pound of beef
     into small pieces. Chop two pods of garlic and add one
     teaspoonful of ground chile, one-third teaspoonful of
     ground cloves, one teaspoonful of black pepper and one
     of oregano. Season with salt and mix all together with
     a glass of port wine and fry in two teaspoonfuls of
     olive-oil. When ready to serve break in two whole eggs
     and scramble together.

                    CHULETAS DE TERNERO

     Trim veal cutlets and season with pepper and salt;
     roll them in flour and lay them in a frying-pan in
     which six onions chopped fine have already been
     placed in hot lard. Cover the pan tightly and let the
     cutlets fry, turning to cook the other side; add a
     tablespoonful of vinegar, a little thyme, a bay-leaf,
     a clove of garlic and some comino seed or chopped
     parsley. When the cutlets are well browned, cover them
     with boiling water and move the pan to the back of
     the stove and let them simmer in this spicy bath for
     two hours. Serve with a garnish of fresh, crisp, cold

     cupful of raisins and olives mixed, and a pinch of
     thyme. Add two pounds of round steak cut small, cover
     closely and stew slowly and thoroughly. When serving,
     put squares of toast on the platter and pour this over.


     Cut a round-steak into small pieces and put into a
     frying-pan with a tablespoonful of hot drippings, four
     tablespoonfuls of rice, a cupful of boiling water and
     a sliced onion. Cover closely and cook slowly until
     tender. Remove the seeds and veins from four Mexican
     peppers, cover with a half-pint of boiling water and
     let stand until cool; squeeze them from the water
     with the hand, getting out all the pulp. Add salt and

     water to cover a beef's tongue and cook until just
     done. When cool remove the skin and slice thin. Take
     a dozen _chiles anchos_ or large dry chiles, cut them
     the long way, remove all seeds, veins and the stem
     end; drop the skins into boiling water with one-half
     cupful of salt, press them under the water and keep

     over the tongue as it is served.

                       LOMA DE VACA

     Take a quarter of a pound of suet, slice thin and fry
     until thoroughly melted. Put a sliced onion in this

     beef and brown on all sides. Take the juice of a large
     tomato, the pulp of a chile pepper, two whole cloves,

     add a tablespoonful of chopped green pepper, a peeled
     tomato, an onion finely shredded, a big lump of
     butter, salt and paprika. Put all in a small stone

     beans to drain. Put a large tablespoonful of fresh
     lard in a skillet and when sizzling-hot add the
     drained beans. Mix beans and lard thoroughly until
     each bean seems to have a coating of the fat and
     begins to burst. Add a cupful of the liquid in which
     the beans were boiled and gently crush a few of the
     beans with the spoon to thicken the gravy. Add the
     remainder of the bean liquor and a chopped chile
     pepper and simmer until the beans are quite dry.

     and butter mixed; strain the hot beans from the pot
     and put into the boiling fat; add a sliced onion and
     seasoning of salt and red pepper. Stir well and allow
     to brown slightly. Ten minutes before taking from the
     frying-pan add seven tablespoonfuls of grated American
     cheese. Serve with thin slices of hot buttered toast
     and sliced cucumbers with oil and vinegar.


     Make a sauce of a quarter of a cupful of olive-oil and
     two tablespoonfuls of butter heated together; in this
     fry two green onions, a bunch of parsley, a little
     celery, a leek, a little garlic, and green peppers,
     all chopped fine. Season with salt and a tablespoonful
     of the Spanish sausage. After all is well cooked down,
     add a half-cupful of good stock. Boil some macaroni
     until tender and then plunge in cold water to blanch.
     Place orderly on a wide platter, strain the hot sauce
     over it and cover the top with grated Edam cheese.


     In the bottom of a bean-jar put a whole onion with a
     clove stuck in it, three whole cloves of garlic, four
     pieces of mustard pickle and three tablespoonfuls of
     the mustard vinegar. Over this put a layer of uncooked
     red beans and a piece of salt pork, then more beans;

     are made of Indian corn ground on the metate, mixed
     with a little water and cooked on a flat surface over
     hot coals.


                   SAUCES FOR ENCHILADAS



     Cut open two chiles and take out all the seeds and
     thick yellow veins; put them on the back of the stove
     in cold water enough to cover them and let soak for
     two hours. Pour off this water and cover again with
     fresh water and boil fifteen minutes. Drain in a
     colander and save the water in which they were last
     boiled. When cold enough to handle, take a knife,
     scrape off all the pulp from the skin, and put in the
     water in which they were boiled and mix thoroughly.
     Fry two onions chopped fine in olive-oil to a delicate
     brown; add a teaspoonful of flour and allow that to

     through a sieve and add one and a half tablespoonfuls
     of the Mexican sausage, salt and a little of the water
     in which the peppers were boiled. Bottle tightly and
     it will keep about three weeks in a cool place.

                       MEXICAN CHILE

     Toast ten _chiles anchos_ (the dried pepper in the
     broad shape) and ten _chiles posillos_ (the dried
     pepper in the thin shape), take out the veins and
     seeds and soak them in a quart of boiling water. Pass
     through a sieve twice, getting out all the pulp, and
     fry this chile liquor in two tablespoonfuls of boiling
     lard, which has been thickened with a tablespoonful
     of browned flour. While boiling add salt, a pinch of
     Mexican sausage, a pinch of sugar, a teaspoonful of
     cider-vinegar and a tablespoonful of oil. Cook all
     together in the lard for fifteen minutes.

                        SALSA NUEZ

     Take three cupfuls of sifted flour, a tablespoonful
     of lard, a level teaspoonful of salt and enough
     water to make it like pastry dough. Roll very thin
     and cut the size of a dessert plate. Have ready in a
     large frying-pan some hot lard, enough to float the
     tortillas, but not so hot as to brown them. Put in
     the tortillas, one at a time, and when they begin to
     blister they are done. This quantity will make about
     two dozen.

                   TORTILLAS DE PATÁTAS

     Work a large cold boiled potato with a big
     teaspoonful of lard and a teaspoonful of salt into
     a pint of flour and add water until about the
     consistency of bread dough. Knead thoroughly and
     divide into chunks about the size of an egg and roll
     very thin. Brown very quickly on a smooth hot stove,
     turning often. When thoroughly cooked, place between a
     cloth and keep covered in this way until ready to use.




     Cut six large red chile peppers in halves, remove
     the seeds and veins and cook in boiling water fifteen
     minutes, then press through a colander. The sauce
     should be thick and smooth. Chop the dark meat of a
     cold cooked chicken, season with salt and add two
     tablespoonfuls of the pepper pulp. Beat two eggs
     without separating, very light, and add a cupful of
     milk. Mix a half-cupful of corn-meal with a cupful
     of flour and a little salt; pour the egg and milk in
     this, making a thin batter. Put a little olive-oil
     in a frying-pan, and when boiling hot turn in enough
     batter to make a thin cake about six inches in
     diameter. Shake the pan until the mixture is set,
     then put two tablespoonfuls of the chicken mixture on
     one side of the cake, roll with a knife and remove
     to the serving-dish. When all are made pour over the
     remaining chile sauce and sprinkle the whole with
     grated Parmesan cheese.


     Have ready two cupfuls of cold cooked chicken cut into
     small bits, over which pour the juice of a lemon and
     sprinkle with chopped parsley. Also chop two onions
     very fine and three hard-boiled eggs; grate a pound of
     good cheese, wash a large cupful of raisins and dry
     them; have three dozen green or ripe olives handy and
     the chile sauce piping hot. Dip the tortillas in the
     hot sauce, place on a large platter and on one-half of
     it put a little of the onion, egg, chicken, cheese,
     two raisins, one olive, and lastly a spoonful of
     the chile sauce. Fold over the other half and roll
     slightly. When they are all finished, sprinkle cheese
     over all and pour over what chile sauce is left.


     Boil eight large Mexican peppers until tender; remove
     skin and seeds and put the pulp through a sieve. Into
     two tablespoonfuls of smoking hot olive-oil put two
     sections of garlic, a teaspoonful of fine marjoram
     and salt; add the pepper-pulp and cook slowly. Chop
     two onions very fine, season with salt and pepper and
     sprinkle with a little marjoram and let stand in a
     very little vinegar. Grate a pound of Edam cheese.
     Strain the sauce and return to the stove; dip a
     tortilla in the sauce, place on a plate and spread it
     with a teaspoonful, each, of the drained onion and the
     cheese; add two olives, two large seedless raisins and
     a tablespoonful of the chile. Roll the tortilla and
     sprinkle each with onion and cheese. After all are
     made, pour over the remaining chile and garnish with


     Buy a dozen tortillas and put on a tin in the oven to
     keep warm. Remove veins and seeds from a half-dozen
     chile peppers and boil them with a small onion and a
     clove of garlic until all are soft. Press through a
     colander, with the water in which they were boiled
     and return the sauce to the stove to keep hot. Tear
     three heads of lettuce into bits, cover with a French
     dressing and mix with it a cupful of chopped olives
     and six hard-boiled eggs, chopped. Drop each tortilla
     in hot lard for a minute, then in the sauce; place
     on a hot platter and put a big spoonful of the salad
     mixture in the center. Sprinkle generously with grated
     cheese and fold over one side, and roll. When all are
     ready pour over the remaining sauce and serve hot.


     Make thin corn-meal pancakes six inches across. Dip
     one in hot chile sauce, lay on a plate and cover with
     raw onion chopped fine, grated cheese and stoned
     olives cut in half. Lay on this six other pancakes,
     each dipped in the chile sauce and covered with the
     onion, cheese and olives. Pour the remaining sauce
     over the top and set in a hot oven for a few minutes.
     Serve hot, cutting like layer-cake.




     Tamales are a mixture of meat or fowl made hot with
     chiles and wrapped in corn-husks. In preparing the
     dough or _nixtamal_, unless scalded meal is used for
     a substitute, it is necessary to prepare the shelled
     corn with lime-water. The Mexicans grind the corn
     prepared in this way, on the metate, and instead of a
     mortar use the _molcajete_ and _lejolote_.

     To prepare the corn, cover it with water, add the
     lime-water and boil until the husks slip off easily
     between the fingers, then wash in cold water until
     perfectly white. The lime-water is made by adding an
     ounce of common lime to a quart of water; stir well
     and let settle; when clear, drain off the water for
     use. One quart of lime-water prepared in this way will
     do for a pound of corn. For the wrapping, cut off the
     inside leaves of the corn-husks about an inch from
     the stalk end and boil in clear water until perfectly
     clean. Tear a few in narrow strips to use for tying
     the ends; dry the rest and rub them over with a cloth
     dipped in hot lard.



     Use equal quantities of cold boiled chicken and veal,
     and half as much ham, all chopped. Mix together and
     moisten with good gravy. Season with salt, cayenne
     and a little chopped parsley. Make a dough by pouring
     a cupful of boiling water on a quart of fine, fresh
     corn-meal; work in a big lump of butter and add water
     until like biscuit dough. Have ready, as directed, a
     pile of the soft inner leaves or husks of green corn.
     Take a lump of dough about the size of an egg; pat it
     out flat, put a tablespoonful of the meat on it and
     roll for the inner husk. Then put on the outer husks
     with a thin piece of dough in each. Tie the ends and
     boil in water containing a few red peppers and a clove
     of garlic.


     Boil three quarts of whole corn in ash lye until the
     hulls come off; soak in clear water until the lye is
     all out, then grind. Remove the seeds and veins from
     six chile peppers, boil soft and then put through a
     colander to separate from the skin. Boil a chicken
     tender and set aside half of the well-seasoned broth;
     the rest, with the chicken, thicken with part of
     the ground corn and add the pepper-pulp and three
     tablespoonfuls of fine marjoram. For the batter, take
     the remainder of the broth and ground corn and mix
     into it a tablespoonful of olive-oil; season with salt
     and make the dough just thick enough to spread. These
     proportions will make fifteen tamales.


     Grind two quarts of hulled corn through a
     meat-chopper and mix to a paste with two
     tablespoonfuls of melted butter, salt and cayenne.
     Divide a large, fat chicken and stew until tender, in
     water containing a clove of garlic and a pinch, each,
     of salt, comino seed and marjoram. Scald two dozen
     dry chiles, remove the seeds and veins, scrape the
     pulp from the skin, add this to the chicken-stew and
     thicken slightly with flour. Shape the corn-husks with
     scissors and soak in warm water for an hour. Remove,
     dry and rub each one with hot fat. Fill one with the
     chicken-stew, spread four others with the corn-paste;
     fold over the one containing the chicken and roll the
     others around. Tie the ends with a strip of the husk
     and steam for two hours.

                         HOT TAMAL

     For the dough, add to one pint of corn-meal, one
     tablespoonful, each, of salt and lard, and enough
     boiling water to make a thick dough. Prepare the
     corn-husks as directed. For the filling boil one pound
     of beef and pour over it hot beef fat; cut into small
     bits and season with salt and chile sauce. Put a layer
     of the dough in the husk, over this a tablespoonful of
     the prepared meat; roll like a cigarette, with a layer
     of dough between each husk. Tie each end and steam two

                   LAREDO'S CELÉBERRIMO

     Boil a pound of pork until two-thirds cooked; then
     grind it rather fine. Add a small amount of garlic,
     also a small quantity of seeded raisins and prepared
     almonds. Soak two and a half ounces of chiles in hot
     water; take out the seeds and veins, wash them well
     and grind fine, adding enough of the stock in which
     the meat was boiled to make a sauce, and strain.
     For the dough use the ground corn prepared with
     lime-water; add six ounces of fresh lard to the pound,
     salt to taste and moisten with the meat stock. Have
     the husks prepared, spread each with a thin layer of
     dough, and for the center one, a tablespoonful of the
     pork and a tablespoonful of the chile sauce. Roll
     carefully, tie the ends and steam over the liquid in
     which the meat was boiled.

                       MESA REDONDA

     Cover a four-pound chicken with hot water and add
     four onions, a clove of garlic chopped fine, a stick
     of cinnamon, ten whole allspice, ten cloves, three red
     chile peppers and a teaspoonful of salt. Simmer until
     the chicken is tender, then remove and cut into small
     pieces. Strain the liquor, put the chicken meat into
     it, add enough yellow corn-meal to make a thick mush
     and boil ten minutes. Have ready the green corn cut
     from a dozen ears and two pounds of raisins, seeded,
     and mix these into the mush, with a half-teaspoonful
     of cayenne. Fill the center husk with a piece of the
     chicken and some of the mush, roll the others around,
     each spread with a tablespoonful of the mush. Tie at
     each end and boil an hour.


     Scald a quart of good Southern white corn-meal,
     making it moist, but not soft. Have a chicken boiled
     until tender and separated into parts; season the
     broth with the pulp of two dozen chile peppers, a
     quart of whole olives, two pounds of raisins, a cupful
     of sweet lard, salt and a suspicion of garlic; add
     enough corn-meal to thicken like gravy. Lay one of
     the prepared husks flat, put a piece of chicken on
     it and two tablespoonfuls of the thickened gravy;
     fold the husk over with the chicken inside, and roll
     around this six more husks, spreading each with two
     tablespoonfuls of the scalded meal. Tie each end
     securely with a narrow strip of the husk and steam
     three hours or longer.

                       OLLA PODRIDA



     Boil three Spanish peppers and pass the pulp through
     a sieve. Fry a small onion and a clove of garlic,
     chopped fine, in hot olive-oil; add the pepper-pulp,
     a small piece of butter, salt, a dash of tabasco
     and a cupful of grated cheese. Stir, as it heats,
     and add thin cream until it will pour nicely. Serve
     immediately on hot toasted biscuits.


     Put two cupfuls of brown sugar in a saucepan, add a
     half-cupful of milk, and boil gently until a little
     put in cold water can be rolled into a ball between
     the fingers. Stir steadily while boiling; add a lump
     of butter the size of an egg; when this is melted
     remove from the fire and beat until the mixture begins
     to look creamy and slightly granulated. Stir in
     quickly a pound of English walnuts shelled and broken,
     beat for a moment and then turn into buttered tins to


     Cream a quarter of a cupful of butter with a
     half-cupful of powdered sugar; add gradually a quarter
     of a cupful of milk and seven-eighths of a cupful of
     flour. Flavor with vanilla and spread very thin, with
     a broad knife, on a buttered inverted dripping-pan;
     sprinkle with blanched and chopped almonds, crease in
     three-inch squares, and bake until delicately browned.
     While warm cut the squares apart and roll slightly.


     Chop two large onions fine and fry in hot olive-oil;
     add two large peeled and sliced tomatoes and a
     teaspoonful of ground dry chile. Cook twenty
     minutes and just before serving put in a half-dozen
     hard-boiled eggs cut in quarters. Pour over toast.

                      CAFÉ CON LECHE

     Set the drip coffee-pot where it will keep hot. Put a
     cupful of ground coffee into the strainer and pour two
     tablespoonfuls of boiling water in the top; in five
     minutes, pour in a little more water, adding a little
     at a time until you have used four cupfuls, but never
     pour in water a second time until the grounds have
     ceased to bubble. In serving, fill the cup only half
     full of coffee and add the rest in boiling milk. On
     top put a tablespoonful of hot cream.

                      CRIOLLO GUISADO

     Get ten of the Mexican tortillas, cut them in small
     pieces and fry in hot lard; in another pan, fry a
     large onion and a clove of garlic chopped fine; just
     as it browns, add the fried tortillas, and brown
     together for a few minutes; then add a pound and a
     half of mild cheese, grated, and a cupful of chopped
     olives. When all are fried together nicely, season
     with salt and pour over it a chile sauce, and put in a
     deep dish and bake for fifteen minutes. Serve as soon
     as taken from the oven.


     Beat into a cupful of cold mashed potatoes one of
     thick sour cream or milk, and add two beaten eggs.
     Sift into a cupful of flour a half-teaspoonful, each,
     of soda and salt, and beat this lightly into the
     potatoes and milk. Drop the batter in big spoonfuls on
     a hot griddle and bake on both sides. Put grated ham,
     chopped olives and a little parsley on one cake, and
     place the other on top to form a sandwich. Serve hot
     and pass with them chile sauce.


     Slice two Spanish onions in thin rings, cut two fresh
     chiles across in rings, removing the seeds, and slice
     three ripe, firm tomatoes. Put these in alternate
     layers in a shallow bowl, sprinkle parsley and
     bread-crumbs over the top and cover with a dressing
     made of three parts oil to one of vinegar, seasoned
     with salt. Serve ice cold.

                      LLENAR MEJICANO

     Cut a pound of mild cheese into tiny bits. Prepare a
     cupful of olives stoned and chopped fine, one large
     onion chopped fine, and ten chile-prunes (that is,
     the dried shells of the chiles, without the seeds),
     toasted and crushed fine. To these add a pinch of
     marjoram crushed fine, a tablespoonful of olive-oil
     and a teaspoonful of cider-vinegar. Mix all well
     together, let stand an hour and then put between thin
     slices of bread and butter.


     Cream a quarter of a pound of butter, adding by
     degrees the beaten yolks of six eggs; beat together
     until thick and creamy, then sift in ten ounces of
     flour, stirring all the time. Whisk up the whites of
     the six eggs, and gently, but thoroughly, stir these
     in, adding sufficient milk to make a medium thick
     batter; flavor with vanilla. Bake in waffle-irons,
     well greased and hot. Butter each waffle as it comes
     from the iron, and dust with fine sugar mixed with a
     little powdered cinnamon.


     Soak slices of stale bread and squeeze dry. Put
     plenty of fresh lard in a frying-pan and when boiling
     hot put in an onion chopped fine, some ground chile
     and a pinch of sweet marjoram. Lay the slices of
     bread in this with plenty of fresh crumbled goats'
     cheese, and fry for ten minutes, stirring to cook on
     all sides. Remove to a hot plate and cover with fresh
     grated cheese, stoned ripe olives and hard-boiled eggs
     chopped fine.


     Beat together a cupful of cold boiled squash, one
     of milk, and two eggs. Sift together a cupful of
     corn-meal, one of flour, a half-teaspoonful of salt
     and two of baking-powder. Mix all together into a
     smooth batter and bake on both sides in little cakes
     on a hot griddle. Serve hot with sugar sprinkled on

                        PAN RELLENO

     Chop onion very fine and mix with mild cheese cut
     in small pieces in the proportion of one-third onion
     to two-thirds cheese; add a few ripe olives stoned
     and cut in half, and a pinch of _oregano_. Mix this
     together with a dressing made of oil and vinegar:
     two-thirds oil and one-third vinegar. Cut off the top
     of a small loaf of French bread the long way, dig out
     the center and fill with the cheese mixture. Put the
     crust back on top and cover with the mixture and bake
     in a rather quick oven.


     Into three pints of boiling water put a teaspoonful
     of salt and a tablespoonful of butter. When boiling,
     sift in slowly, stirring constantly, about a pint of
     Indian meal and boil a half-hour. Have ready, hot, a
     cupful of good gravy, and one of tomato sauce, made
     with chile. Put a layer of the cooked Indian meal in
     the bottom of a baking-dish, then the sauce and gravy,
     sprinkled with a little grated cheese. Fill the dish
     with these alternate layers and bake for half an hour.
     Serve hot with a little extra chile.


     Sauter little half-inch squares of chicken or calves'
     liver in olive-oil over a brisk fire; when nicely
     browned, add some thick tomato sauce and some leftover
     gravy. Into this cut up half-inch lengths of cooked
     macaroni, mushrooms, and a few olives cut small.
     Season highly and work in a big lump of butter. Serve
     on toasted squares.

                      TORTAS SERRANO

     Beat six eggs together until light; add a half-cupful
     of flour and an onion chopped fine. Stir in lightly
     one teaspoonful of baking-powder and a pinch of salt.
     Cut a half-pound of mild cream cheese into thin
     squares and add to the egg mixture. Have ready a
     kettle of hot lard. Take up one piece of cheese at a
     time with as much of the egg mixture as the spoon will
     hold, and drop into the fat and fry until brown. Serve
     with hot chile sauce.

                    TORTILLA DE HUEVOS

     Chop a small clove of garlic and fry in olive-oil; add
     a cupful of mushrooms, cut small, and a half-cupful of
     stewed tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Make a
     plain omelet and just before folding it over, spread
     this on top. Serve immediately.
