In the vein recently started by Doug from BC and others, I thought I'd share with the list a simple something I whipped up for dinner last night. Having not been shopping for a few days, there was not much in the house- however, I did have, secreted in the freezer, some frozen green chile (souvenir of a New Mexico trip earlier this year.)


1 large ripe tomato, peeled, seeded and chopped finely

4 oz. hot green (Sandia) chile, roasted, peeled, seeded, chopped 

1 clove garlic, minced 

1 chicken bouillon cube

1/3 cup dry white wine 

pinch each oregano and cumin. 


 Put all of the above in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened by about 1/3.  Pour over your favorite pasta (I used rigatoni), and eat. 

Took about 10 minutes and was a heck of a lot better than the leftover lasagna that was the alternative...

Note: this is scaled for one person, as my SO isn't much of a chile-head. Scale up to your heart's content.
