Hi all,

Recently I was looking through a small cookbook my mother gave me.
It was published by the Gebhardt Chili Powder folks in 1935! 
Someone must have given it to her sometime after that, because
I'm sure, as a Kansas girl of 12, she hadn't yet discovered Mexican 
food in 1935.

I haven't tried either of these two recipes yet, but they intrigued 
me for one reason or another, so I thought I'd share them. I've never 
seen anything like the frozen vegetable recipe before, and I especially 
like the reference to freezing in a mechanical freezer - so new thing in 
1935 that you have to specify.

Also, the Papas Enchiladas / Pinked Potatoes struck me. I always
thought Enchiladas necessarily involved a filling of some sort rolled 
up in a (corn) tortilla. But no tortillas in sight here. The word 
Enchilada is not in my Spanish-English dictionary. Quick trips through 
my Mexican cookbooks (a couple from Kennedy and one from Ortiz) did not
shed any light. Can anybody explain why this recipe is called Enchiladas?

Enjoy!
Kaye
