It can be difficult to find the right words to explain things at times.
Especially when you are trying to hedge your way around (i.e. avoiding) saying exactly what it is you want to say.
The salsa quitza consisted of a yeasted dough (made with refried beans), placed into a springform pan and filled with cream cheese, salsa (two cups) and cheddar. The mixture was baked until dark (which was hard to tell because the dough was already brown).
The end result had decent enough flavors, but it had some issues. Mainly the two cups of salsa that were stuffed into a pile of dough inside of a 12" springform pan. The laws of volume came into play here - in a big way... (Just imagine what happens to two cups of salsa when you cut into the quiche pie.)
I served this along side cheater's "paella" (I cooked my rice in the rice cooker and cooked the seafood & sausage mixture separate) and the bready edges (of which there were a lot) went pretty well dipped in the "paella" sauce.
I am still scratching my head over this one and just can't find the right words to explain it all.
I'll stop while I'm behind.
