Wynn recruited Tal Ronnen, known for his vegan creations, to participate in an opportunity Ronnen couldn’t [...]

Stuffed Calabacitas: Squash Stuffed with Corn, Tomatoes, Green Chiles

Fresh green chilies (from our garden), fresh corn, fresh zucchini, fresh tomatoes and manchego cheese – perfection. These calabacitas were whipped up for a potluck celebrating el Dia de los Muertos.
