Chilindrinas

Oh they are tasty.....yes they are!!
We just ended the stake basketball tournament for the youth....it is always a great time.
Not a far cry from the movie "Church Ball"...I mean, there is a reason that they made the movie, right??? It is always fun for us to watch The Boy and PreShie play.... and who knew
that The Rooster would have such a great time too! He's a crowd pleaser, that Rooster....
he had alot of people cheering for him, even the opposing team;)
The Farmer came home from "the games" one evening grinning from ear to ear...and so I had to ask...."what's got you so happy??" to which he answered....
"CHILINDRINAS!"
"they have them at the games.....oh I really like Chilindrinas, let's go get one...."
and so we did. We went to "the games" for the sole purpose of getting a
CHILINDRINA
They are not found everywhere....it has to be a basketball tournament....a fundraiser at the school....or some other similar gathering. I might add, that Saturday night, I did scout out a location that does sell them year round.....Horray!
(if you need to know where...give me a ring....hehe....)
If you are wondering......
"What exactly is a CHILINDRINA???"
here you go....

003 Layer #1 - a pasta like sheet of goodness that has been cooked in the microwave until it puffs up,
we call them- chicharon - which is actually fried pig skin....this is a fake chicharon....
Layer #2 - you can choose refried beans....or not....
Layer #3 - avocado
Layer #4 - shredded lettuce
Layer #5 - finely diced cucumber (I always order extra)
Layer #6 - finely diced tomato
Layer #7 - a dribble or two of cream....not sour cream....CREAM
Layer #8 - Valentina - chile sauce - as much as you would like....(I take just a little.)
And there you have it....
perfect yumminess!!

If you are wondering why I didn't post a picture of me eating my CHILINDRINA....
well, it was because I had it all over me! With each bite more and more....fell on the floor....
on me....it was all over my hands.... and all over my face.....it was everywhere!
But, oh, was it worth it!
Horray for the
CHILINDRINA!!!
(another yummy taste of Mexico!)
