Poets, Food, MM-hm.

This just in from poet and critic Sara McCurry:

My recipe for "Hicksville White Girl Tacos":

1 lb. pork, cubed into around 1 inch cubes
1 can tomatoes w/green chiles
2-3 garlic cloves, minced or pressed (you gotta have a
garlic press, right?)
1 tbsp. chili powder, pref. your own grind (one can
skimp the tomatoes, but never the chili powder)
Some thyme and some cumin, some cayenne too.
1 tbsp cocoa powder (stay with me--it's like white
trash mole!)
1/2 of whatever beer you're currently drinking

Brown the pork. Dump in tomatoes & everything else &
simmer on low until the pork is very tender (add beer
or broth as needed--takes an hour 1/2 or two) and the
whole mess looks like it won't run to your elbow if
you fill a flour tortilla with it. Fill a flour
tortilla with it, and whatever condiments you find
conducive. The cocoa powder gives a great richness and
you'd never know it was in there. Prepare to clear
whole rooms with your gaseous expressions of
contentment about 4 1/2 hours later.
