The Best Thing I Ate Over the Holidays

My family definitely does holiday food well. My brother C and sister-in-law E served up some excellent seafood lasagna (complete with crab and prawns they caught themselves) and smoked some tasty armadillo eggs (I was so hungover after their New Year’s Eve party…). My other sister-in-law L and I whipped up some hazelnut rosemary shortbread, and a giant batch of Uncle Walker’s cheeseball. I made some very good pate, and some out-of-this-world mashed potatoes. All tasty, all deserving of praise.

Ain’t nothing like Dorilocos.

Admittedly my version was very much Canadian-chick-who’s-never-been-to-Mexico-makes-Dorilocos, but they were just ridiculously good.

I was able to go to Los Guerrerros Mexican Food Products on Kingsway for chamoy and Valentina sauce (and I suspect if I had had more time to look, I would have found even more goodies). And I did enquire about cueritos–pickled pork skin–but apparently it’s not legal to sell in Canada! There was no jicama available up in Campbell River, and I forgot about the peanuts, and opted for sour gummy worms rather than gummy bears, but still the Dorilocos were just fucking tasty. Salty, crunchy, spicy, sweet… Perfect perfect snack food.

I will be making these again!
