This afternoon, I was doing the grocery shopping. After taking a turn down an aisle I decided I didn't need to go down, I was turning around and looked into a freezer case full of Bueno frozen food. Bueno Foods is an Albuquerque based company that specializes in foods and ingreadents of the region (central New Mexico). The case had, or had tags showing that they had sold out of, frozen red and green chili in both Hot and Mild varieties, Pork Tamales and frozen pasole and masa.
Of course at this point in time, we have most of what we need along these lines (allthough some of the Bueno tamales joined the Trader Joe's tamales we picked up a couple of weeks back). But if we remember that they have this stuff, and they still have it in December, I'll actually be able to completely follow my mom's pasole recipe using frozen red chili paste and frozen pasole rather than the dried equivalent.
