Change up your Mexican repertoire with inspiration from Chef Braden. A Green Chili and Tomatillo Sopa recipe with Braised Pork and Roasted Corn is the perfect venue for demonstrating how to prepare chilies and tomatillos for cooking. The Sopa is topped with Crema and Cotija Cheese. Make tender, moist Carne Asada for Tacos and then pair it with Cabbage Chipotle Slaw, Guacamole , Spanish Rice and Refried Beans. Hands on and optional wine.
