Carjackers, Stewed Iguana, and Pollo Guisado

Churpa and Jazmin

Just had a great visit with our friends Mark and Jazmin, who live on the coast of Guerrero, about an hour outside of Zijuatanejo. They report that things seem to be cooling off in their area. Last year they made do with a decrepit, rusty truck because they were worried about car jackings. This year, crime seems low enough that they feel comfortable bringing a better vehicle down. I’ll keep you posted.

In addition to filling us in on the goings on in their neck of the woods, Jazmin shared some great recipes with me. As soon as Mark sends me the photo of the giant black iguana Jazmin caught, I’ll post her recipe for stewed iguana. But for now, how about some classic Pollo Guisado?
