Hígado Encebollado en Chipotle (Liver in Onions and Chipotle)


Today I felt very nostalgic, I thought about my family in Mexico all day, my dad in special, sometimes, there are days that I just miss my lovely family, my times in Mexico, but I can’t complain, I am very happy here in London where I also have a wonderful family on my own.

So this dish is full of Mexican Food Memories of my childhood. My dad, I kin foodie, used to always cook rare cuts of meat, like liver, but I guess at that time it wasn’t that rare to cook a bit of liver from time to time, nowadays, it seems we only eat liver in pâté, but this delicious dish is full of  great flavours and the chipotle chilli adds that kick that gives a very subtle flavour. It is a very quick recipe to make and if you have it with some creamy mashed potato you can have a lovely dinner in no time!
