    Chicken is good. I usually go with smoked sausage or kielbasa. I also add a can of crushed tomatoes and sometimes when I'm feeling frisky, a bag of frozen peas.

    Wit / widdout refers to onions, not peppers. I order whiz wit.

    Exactly. Witout (no onions) with hot peppers (there's no term for that). I live 25 mins from Philly, well versed in the lingo.

    And if you ever see something called a Philly cheesesteak because it has green peppers and onions run. Sure you CAN get green peppers on a cheesesteak but they're not traditional

    *edit - realized my wording was a little confusing. It makes more sense with the pictures but CJ is 100% correct in what he said, wit is with onions witout/widdout (it's not a real word it's just a spelling of an accent) is no onions.

    Need to remember pics. Anyhow tonight I made some chicken tomatillo stew. Roasted onion, garlic, tomatillo, corn, Serrano. Blend with honey, cilantro, lime. Brown thighs with cumin, coriander, oregano. Parboil potato. Everyone goes in the pool for a simmer with some chicken stock. Serve with a little crema y cilantro.

    Ah, let's not forget fresh watermelon margaritas. Last weekend was mango-habanero.

    Summer cooler: Chill a "sweet heart" watermelon. In a blender, add a peeled 3" piece of fresh ginger and the juice of one fresh lime. Chop until fine. Add the flesh of the watermelon until it is all incorporated, and three or four ice cubes to blend until slushy. In a tall tumbler, half-fill with ice and add 2-3 ounces of Tito's vodka. Fill glass with watermelon mixture. Top with a mint sprig if desired. Yum.

    I bet this would also be good with a couple splashes of ginger ale.
