Hanging Tortillas on the Clothesline

Extra tortillas don’t go to waste in our house. Sometimes I set them out on the kitchen counter to dry so we can use them as a dog snack. Yesterday, Russ decided to hang some on the clothesline to dry more quickly. It didn’t take long for Chucha to find them and check out the new laundry. She was told not to help herself. For her obedience, she was given a tortilla dog treat. Maybe she can’t resist dry tortillas because of their crunchiness. Or maybe it’s because she’ll eat almost anything, short of a carrot.

If you have extra tortillas and your dog doesn’t mind sharing them, they are also great in chilaquiles, with either red or green chile sauce.

I have a  family matter to take care of and I don’t know when I’ll be back to the blog, nor do it know if I’ll have an opportunity to write for the blog during this period. Please bear with me. I will return and I hope to find all my faithful readers still here, waiting for me.

    GREAT photos! This is one of my favorite blogs and my go-to for Mexican recipes. I have enjoyed it so much: thank you!
    ps, Your dog looks like such a sweetheart!

    1. Hi Michelle,
      Thanks for the note. She is a sweetheart, though also a chow hound, so it was hard for her to stay away from the drying tortillas. She got them eventually as treats. :)
      I’m so glad you are enjoying the recipes. They are my go-to for Mexican recipes, also!

    My dog is always waiting after lunch to see if there is any tortillas left in the basket. He knows that if we didn’t not finish them, he will get lucky.

    You are getting bien mexicana! :)

    Cuidate mucho y que gusto leer tu blog. Me he pasado un rato muy agradable leyendo y viendo como disfrutas nuestra comida, bueno ahora tu comida.


  3. I love the dog photo looking at the tortillas on the clothes line. Actually all your photos and presentations are fabulous. This is my first visit to you blog and it has officially made me hungry. I look forward to trying some of your recipes.

  4. that pic is too cute and a jump over to the delectable chilaquiles pic has me hungry for some. it’s lunchtime but I am not as lucky as to have what it takes to make those right now. *sigh*

  5. Sweet lady,
    The look on your dog’s face staring up at the clothesline is precious. Blogging is our passion but sometimes it cannot be our first priority and I think we all appreciate that. Take good care and know we will be for you just as Lyndsey said.

    With love,

  6. I love that first photo! What a capture! I think we might have some other critters getting too them before we can give them to our dog. Your dog is so cute!

    Take care of what you need to, and we will be here for you…or waiting for your return!

    Hi Kathleen, greetings from San Diego, CA.
    I love the picture of the tortillas hanging on the clothesline – and what a great and deserving dog you have!!! So sorry to hear that you will be absent for a while as I love your postings so much.
    We will be in the PV area for the month of March and we hope you guys will be around for a visit.
    Sending love to you both.

  8. Kathleen,
    Hope all is well and that this family matter is resolved soon. We’ll miss you! And will be anxiously waiting for your return. Thank you for the cute “until then” post. I have the softest spot for fur-balls as the “mom” of 2 of them.
    Best wishes, Paola
