Posole and Desert Succotash
Serves 6 to 8 as a side dish
Corn, squash, and beans re the “three sisters” of Native American cuisine, and this trio is used in many ways. Here, local flavor is added with desert plants as well as huitacoche, a corn fungus that was a great favorite of the ancient Aztecs. (Today some corn is grown just to harvest this delicacy.) Posole, or hominy, is dried corn used traditionally as a base for soup, but here it gives substance to the succotash for a perfect side fish served with mushrooms and asparagus and Dry-Aged American Kobe Beef Tenderloin. It makes a great vegetable complement to any meal.
3 quarts mineral water
1 posole, soaked in water
4 nopales pads (nopalitas) (see Chef’s Note)
1 cup diced pancetta
1 medium butternut squash, peeled and diced small
1 cup diced Vidalia onions
3 eats roasted corn, kernels removed
4 purple potatoes, julienne
½ cup huitlacoche
3 or 4 piquillo peppers, diced small
1 tablespoon roasted garlic
1 cup chicken stock
1 tablespoon Plugra butter
Few sprigs of fresh sage, chiffonade
Cook the soaked posole in 2 quarts mineral water until tender, then set aside to cool. Peel the nopales, simmer in water until tender, cool, and dice. Set aside. In a large sauté pan cook the pancetta over medium heat. Add the squash, onions, and posole and continue to cook until softened. Next, add the corn, potatoes, huitlacoche, peppers, garlic, and nopalitos. Continue cooking until ingredients are cooked through, about 10 minutes. Stir in the chicken stock to deglaze the pan. Reduce the heat and cook another 5 or 6 minutes. Just before serving, add the butter and sage. To serve with a meat dish, place some of the succotash into a small ring mold, then unmold it alongside the meat. Rest some asparagus spears against the succotash for an elegant presentation.
Chef Strong Notes: Nopals are the pads of the prickly pear. They have a tart flavor similar to green beans. Fresh pads can be found in Latino and some gourmet markets. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the skin, then simmer the pads in water until tender. Pickled nopalitas, already diced, are available in jars or cans.
Kai Restaurant at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa in Chandler is one of the top dining destinations in Arizona–if not the nation. Kai is one of only six United States restaurants to have earned the AAA Five Diamond status. And Kai’s amazing chefs, including Executive Chef Michael O’Dowd, are sharing their lip-smacking recipes with the masses in the new cookbook, “The New Native American Cuisine” by Marian Betancourt (www.globepequot.com). Though the book doesn’t come out until September, I have a sneak peek at a few of the divine recipes (check back tomorrow for another recipe from “The New Native American Cuisine”.)

Tom Curran and reporter Mark Trahant examine a little-known chapter of the Catholic Church sex abuse story: decades of abuse of Native Americans by priests and church workers in Alaska. The Silence shows how the isolation of the villages and the absolute authority of the church over the Native population created an atmosphere where molestation could go unchecked and unreported. As part of the recent church settlement with the victims, the bishop of Fairbanks returns to all of the villages where the abuse occurred and apologizes to the victims in person. FRONTLINE is there when the bishop comes face-to-face with the reality of the abuse that the church denied for years. The Silence is a co-presentation with Native American Public Telecommunications (NATP).

Hi, its that time of year again! Almost… As you may or may not know I am the First Nation’s volunteer coordinator for the annual UW Spring Powwow, the largest student run event all year, yes we are very proud of that 🙂 BUT it would not at all be possible without the help of usually over one hundred volunteers-we can use all the help we can get! So please take the time to consider coming down to help us out for a few hours… over the course of the three days we put the event on. I will provide you with a link that will take you to an eight question survey sign up that will give you all of the information you will probably need and if not you can always message me on facebook or email me. Even if you can’t make it because you don’t have the time or may not be in the area, please forward the link to someone you may know who can make it to the Powwow.
Some of the duties we need help with: These are the big ones, making fry bread dough in the kitchen, frying the bread in the fry room, selling the bread and Indian and Alaskan Native tacos at the concession stand. Other various jobs are being a MIC holder for the drum groups, hanging out with kids in the side gymnasium, selling shirts, or maybe even helping me with volunteer coordination. Also the first and last days of the Powwow vendors who might be getting up there in mileage if you know what I mean, might need a little help unloading and loading their inventory because they don’t get around as good as they used to. Please come help us out!
And if you cannot, please pass this event invitation or my email address along to somebody who can, thank you
