Artichokes Stuffed with Tuna Fish and Celery Salad (Alcachofas Rellenas con Atun)
Ingredients:
8 large artichokes
6-1/2 ounces water-packed tuna, well drained
3 tablespoons finely diced celery
8 lettuce leaves, patted dry
1 lemon, halved, and one-half cut into slices
1 hard-cooked egg, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise, preferably homemade
1 ripe tomato, cut into 8 wedges
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons finely minced fresh parsley
Cooking Instructions:
Using a sharp stainless-steel knife, trim off the artichoke stems and slice 1 inch off the top. Rub the cuts with the lemon half. Place the artichokes, stem side down, in a large nonreactive pot and cover with water. Add the salt and 4 lemon slices. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and boil gently uncovered until tender, 35 to 45 minutes. To test doneness, pull a leaf out; if it comes out easily without resistance, the artichoke is done. Drain the artichokes upside doen in a colander or on a rack. When cool enough to handle, discard all the green leaves, scraping off and saving all the edible parts in a small bowl. Scoop out the fuzzy choke with a small spoon. Trim the bottom to a nice round shape. Combine the tuna, onion, celery, and reserved artichoke pieces in a medium bowl. Add the mayonnaise and black pepper; toss gently with a fork. Adjust the seasoning. Stuff the artichoke bottoms with the tuna and celery salad. Arrange the lettuce on a serving platter. Place the stuffed artichokes on top of the lettuce, and garnish with the tomato wedges and parsley.

Baked Eggs in Creamy Corn Sauce with Basil (Huevos con Pilco de Choclo)
Ingredients:
1 tablespoon butter
1-1/2 cups whole milk or half-and-half
3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
1 tablespoon finely minced fresh basil
Cooking Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 400 F (205C). Butter 4 individual earthenware dishes or 1 large one. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add the onion and saute until softened but not browned, 4 minutes. Add the corn and milk. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the corn is tendeer and most of the liquid is absorbed, 10 to 15 minutes. (Frozen corn will take a little longer than fresh because it releases more water.) Season generously with salt, black pepper, and basil. (The dish can be prepared in advance up to this point. Reheat the corn mixture, adding a little milk if necessary, before continuing). Spoon the corn mixture evenly into the prepared dishes. Make an indentation in the corn mixture in the center of each dish for the eggs. Carefully break 1 or 2 eggs at a time into a bowl, and let them slide into each indentation. Season with salt and black pepper, and dot with the butter. Bake 7 to 10 minutes, until the egg white is milky and the yolk is set but still soft. Serve immediately.
