This recipe comes from Sid’s Sea Palm Cooking Blog. While browsing Sid’s recipes, one thing I quickly learned is that Sid loves to share good food with friends. Hosting a monthly Tapas night and once a month attending a boat club pot luck gathering, it becomes evident that the saying “enough food to feed an army” comes to reality. I really enjoyed reading about the feast of food that appears at these events and found some great entertaining ideas.
Since my freezer contains a virtual frozen Fiesta, I headed directly for the “Mexican” category. The list of recipes found me pinning things I want to make soon, Navajo Tacos, pot luck Southwestern Casserole, and curiosity got the best of me when I saw Peggy’s Paparitos. The description of warm flour tortillas filled with savory sausage, creamy stir-fried potatoes, chile peppers and then topped with cheese and popped under the broiler for a melted treat…my selection had been made.
Here’s the description of how Sid came across Peggy’s Paparito’s: “A few years back I had the pleasure of meeting and making friends with a lovely lady named Peggy. She was a transplanted Texan, and loved all things Tex-Mex. She gave me the following recipe, and it ranks right up there with all the other Tex-Mex foods I love.”
Peggy’s Paparito’s were absolutely delicious and we loved every bite. Simple ingredients turned into a surprising combination of textures and flavors.
Thanks so much for this Tex-Mex dish Sid, what a great Sunday dish to celebrate Fall and football.
