Feliz Cinco de Mayo

I was born in Mexico (probably in a puppy mill there but as a rescue, who knows?) and I celebrate Cinco de Mayo. There’s no better way to celebrate it than with food. Food is good-even on regular days. Today, yours truly, your Mexican chef will teach you how to make Kyla Kasserole. First you start with organic green beans-frozen is OK but never canned. This early in the season, you can’t get really fresh so use the frozen.

SAM_0036Put the beans in a casserole dish

SAM_0502Now, no Kyla Mexican dish is complete without salsa muy picante. Choose your hot sauce well. Here’s a rating system:

SAM_0509Going from left to right,

– use in a pinch

– adequate

– good

– better

– best. You won’t find this in stores, it’s His home made 3 Mile Island sauce.

What’s this?

SAM_0501I thought I put beans in this. Ok, start off by putting a layer of beans in the bottom of a casserole dish

SAM_0505OK, where was I? Oh yes, I was telling you how to tell how good your hot sauce is

SAM_0504You go outside to your car and find a spot that can’t be seen. Put a drop of the  sauce to be tested on it. If nothing happens, the sauce is bad-use it for spaghetti sauce. If the paint on the car blisters, it’s adequate. If there’s smoke and the paint vaporizes, it’s good. If there’s also now a hole in the car’s metal it’s better. 3 Mile Island also drops  to the garage floor and makes a hole in the cement. Take your hot sauce and … whoa, what’s this?

SAM_0501It happened again. Worse than that, look at this

SAM_0031I’m now out of green beans. Kaci, be a dear and run to the store and get some green beans so I can finish this dish.

SAM_0506What’s that-you have a stomach ache and can’t move.

Sorry about that, dear readers. As  Roseanne Roseannadanna often said, “Nevermind”.

Feliz 5 de 5.

  1. I wonder WHY Kaci has this stomach ache… that’s enigmatic… Thanks for the tip with the sauce! My staff are sissies, they only use green tabasco ( max. 1/2 drop). Beans are a great idea, you can celebrate the cinco de mayo with your own firework :o)

  2. Roseanne Roseannadanna ~ If humor was the foundation of my life, men were definitely the first floor ~ “Nevermind”. Happy Sink The Mayo to you, you hot tamale Kyla.

  3. No we have Chihuahuas. We have a small hispanic community and we have http://cincy-cinco.com/ Cincinnati’s Premier Latino Festival going on this weekend.

  4. Hey Swettie, happy Cinco de Mayo to you, we gonna have home made tacos tonight, and home made enchiladas, with beans and rice, Dad makes killer stuff, though we don’t get the hot stuff on ours. Hum, wonder were them green beans went, bet you and Kaci shared them. Sure wish you could send over some of them famous Olympic Zoomie ones! YeeHa, Heeheehee, SWTS with Sink The Mayo!

  5. We MIGHT get beans, but that’s all. We’d love to have some tacos and stuff. Thanks for your hot sauce tips.

  6. Kyla, you’re a riot! That Kaci is a chow hound! I hope you got just a few of those precious green beans! I used to do a killer Rosanne Rosannadana impression when I was kid. Yep, I was one of those who’d entertain the peeps when I was a wee one. Oh, and I hope you didn’t get any hot sauce on your fur. Anything called Death could, well, kill you! PS – I have pics to upload from the camera and I will do a post soon – sorry I am a lazy human!

  7. Hehe…there’s a green bean thief on the house.

  8. Hey gurl, Ma keeps gettin’ those green bean thingies for me to eat on my ‘diet’ PFFFFT!
    I keep chewin’ them up and leavin’ them in a pile on the floor. Obviously, Ma doesn’t know which sauce to use!

  9. Put a pepper under Her butt and get Her moving.

  10. Who knew Kaci was such a tricksy girl?? You’re gonna have to keep your eye on her Kyla…and your green beans.

  11. Oh noes Kyla! Think you need to have words with Kaci…

  12. Petite green beans. Organic no less. Muy poco. Wha????

  13. Oh that was hilarious Kyla, no wonder Kaci has tummy ache..BOL I love beans now fanks to you 🙂 xxooxx

    Mollie and Alfie

  14. The hot stuff labeled “death” would scare the crap outta me,but Im sure for any hot-sauce lover it is fantastico! Good cooking lesson Kyla!!!! Make sure you have plenty of water at hand!…..paw

  15. Good thing you ran out of green beans. We were starting to worry about that hot sauce!


  16. Mmmm ….. gonna have a go at adding a bit more flavour to them pesky stringy green things we keep being fed.

  17. Thank you Kyla…Momz is always bringing home new hot sauces but she never knew how to rank them before…Most of hers are between the “good” and the “better”…don’t think she has any right now that equal “3 Mile Island” Where can she get some of that, or maybe the recipe? (hint hint)
