If you’ve ever been to the Magic Kingdom at Disney World you may have had a Dole Pineapple Whip. It’s one of those things that you won’t find anywhere but at Disney. It’s so refreshing, a slushy whipped frozen pineapple with pineapple juice pooled around the bottom. I took my version a step further and ran it through the ice cream maker to make it more like the texture of a sorbet. Either way it’s delicious!!

There are so many ways that pork and green chile are paired together. Some of the classics are green chile stew, pork tamales with verde salsa, or green chile posole. With the cold weather sneaking in again before Spring, I was hungry for some comfort food. Searching the freezer for inspiration, I found a pork roast that was very lean. I sliced it into 1/2 inch portions, pounded it into thinner pieces for a very tender chicken fried pork steak. As with all chicken fried dinners you must have cream gravy. It’s a must! But as I made the gravy I added a big scoop of green chile. Let me just say that green chile gravy is the most delicious thing you have ever tasted over chicken fried pork. Call me New Mexican, it’s all about the chile!
