It is that time of year the weather is turning brisk. The heavy jacket is taken out of the closet. Comfort food that is warming and satisfying is craved. What better way to warm up, than a big plate of Chile Verde. I am on a quest to find the Ultimate Chile Verde. The last three Saturdays Ms. Goofy and I have partaken this magical dish of pepper delight at three different establishments. La Tapatia, located in historic Martinez California was our destination yesterday. The picture above was a beautiful plate from La Tapatia that was thoroughly enjoyed.
The Saturday before was an old standby. La Estrellita's in Oakland California. I have been going to La Estrellita's for over 20 years. They have a full bar with 120 different tequilas. I go for the Verde and have almost tried every Tequila. The Chile Verde made with Niman Ranch pork is what makes me want to return.La Tapatia
