Chipotle Lime Chicken utilizes opposing flavors (such as citrus and chile or vinegar and chile) to enhance flavor. It is low in fat, sodium and cholesterol, helping to lay a foundation for good health. We like to make this dish when we have slightly more time because of the marinating that is required. Actual preparation and cook time is minimal so it is actually a nice dish to prepare for a weekday meal.

Plum Pastelitos are a traditional pastry with a fruit center. They are a traditional dessert for Christmas gatherings in New Mexico. Serve warm with whipped cream or take them on a hike for energy.
