As the year winds down it is time for one more bowl of posole. This one is roasted chicken, not the "trotters and tripe" that I usually prepare. Besides tamales, posole is consumed throughout the holiday season in the Southwest. Is there one dish that you culturally eat during the holidays?
Wait there's more.
I made meatballs that are so secret, I dont even know whats in them.....
Not true I know everything thats in them.. No doubt these have a twist, in fact they twist and turn. I used pretzels ground to dust as the bread crumb, they have coarse ground red chile pods, dried mushrooms, marjoram, oregano, fresh garlic, onions and black pepper-salt was not needed as the pretzels brought that to the party and eggs to bind. They were braised in beer and are so soft and tender its hard to slow down when scarfing.

I made a tasty bechamel with fresh tomatoes and shallots.
