Chile Verde (La Frontera Style) recipe: This is my recreation of the chile verde made by La Frontera restaurants in Salt Lake City. It is best served over bean burritos, with shredded cheese, diced onions, and salsa as desired. Note: I am not associated with La Frontera; I created this recipe myself, with the goal of recreating the flavor of their chile verde.

In this riff on the classic French croque-madame (a toasted ham and cheese sandwich topped with béchamel and a fried egg), roasted fresh ham replaces the typical cured ham. If you don't have any leftover fresh ham from Sunday dinner, substitute store-bought sliced roast pork loin or sliced cured ham.
This classic Indian-inspired dish typically takes several hours to make, but we simplified it by skipping the traditional yogurt marinade and letting the pressure cooker infuse the tikka masala flavor into lean chicken breasts. Cayenne adds heat, while a splash of cream keeps the spice in check (add less cayenne if you want it less spicy). Serve over rice and with a piece of naan to soak up the sauce.
