Over the next few days, I will be posting some Mexican Recipes. I have an old postcard book that you can stick a stamp on and mail it, and this little postcard book is filled with Mexican Cookin'. It was copyrighted in 1972 and I doubt there are very many of them out there left. So I have a nice little collectors item. The recipes are old fashioned and some (for the 70's) are more modern. They are all delightful and I have tried every one of them over the years. My husband is of Mexican descent & we love Tex-Mex, as well as any Mexican recipes and food. I hope you enjoy this also.
P.S. You can click this link to find some really good cook books at a resonable price.

1/2 head medium cabbage, shredded
2 cups whole kernel corn
1 cup vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 cup chopped bell pepper
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons red chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cook over medium heat all ingredients together to boiling; cook, covered, 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stirring occasionally. Drain. Serve hot as vegetable. (Or, spoon into containers with tight covers. Refrigerate until serving time. Drain and serve cold as relish.) Makes 4 cups.

The corn-cabbage salad sounds delicious. I can't wait to try it.
