<<< One of the problems we're going to run across with this list of  
is that there are some enormous variations under the heading of, say,
curried goat (as you mentioned), or clam chowder, or huevos rancheros
(Stefan gave us a recipe for them once which sounded almost nothing at
all like the eggs-almost-deep-fried in olive oil sauced with a freshly-
made salsa ranchero -- we're not talking Pace salsa non-cruda here --
that I had always been familiar with). >>>

Lol. Perhaps because the recipe I gave was for Migas, not huevos  
rancheros. :-)

Migas are sorta like scrambled eggs, but with pieces of onion,  
cheese, peppers, fried tortillas, chorizo sausage and sometimes other  
things mixed in.  I assume they started out as a way to use up  
leftover ingredients for breakfast in the Texas/Mexico border area.

Mexican chorizo sausage seems to be always much greasier than Spanish  
chorizo sausage. But since you fry the chorizo first and pour out the  
grease before adding in the rest of the ingredients, the resulting  
dish shouldn't be very greasy.
