The short week comes in with my annual trek to Minicon! A 47 year old science fiction convention held in Minneapolis, MN. I've gone for 17 years now. Holy Scifi Books, Batman! Yeah...that's what I think too... Tack on to that a quick visit to my see my new nephew and not too many new recipes were made. I'll report more on nephew and Minicon in the next couple of days.

I was raiding the pantry for something to accompany the Chipolte Pork and came up with this recipe, which I greatly modified. But even with as many substitutions as I did, it turned out pretty good. Was a nice way to cut the heat of the chiplote sauce on the pork. I'd make this again, as written even.
- Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add rice and onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add peas, tomato, broth, chili powder, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Spoon onto plates. Sprinkle with cilantro; serve with avocado.
