Spicy Chicken and Hominy Mexican Soup
Colorful, warm and spicy, this soup is destined to get your taste buds going. A wonderful comfort dish for any chilly day. Garnish with sour cream.
Agua Fresca de Pepino (Cucumber Limeade)
Lime juice and fresh cucumber add refreshing flair to sweetened water.
Drowned Beef Sandwich with Chipotle Sauce (Torta Ahogada)
Served with a spicy beef broth for dipping, these roast beef sandwiches on crusty rolls make a great quick dinner.
Easy Chicken Flautas
Rolled tacos; these are the best. I learned how to make them and my husband loved them.
Easy Mexican Sopes
This Mexican appetizer is a hit at any party. You can substitute warm broth for the warm water if desired. Serve with a variety of toppings such as beans, cheese, and meat.
Jalapeno and Cucumber Margarita
Nothing tastes better than tequila and jalapeno; the cucumber adds a freshness that helps to mute the jalapeno's bite. The longer it chills, the more jalapeno and cucumber infuses into the tequila. Serve over ice in a salt-rimmed glass, garnished with cucumber slices.
Esquites (Mexican Corn)
Esquites is an off-the-cob version of elote--the sweet, smoky, Mexican corn served from street vendors. This is best made with fresh sweet corn, but frozen can work when you're looking for that perfect comfort dish in off-season months. The flavors of this dish are versatile--enjoy as a side with any Mexican or BBQ fare such as enchiladas, tacos, grilled/roasted chicken, BBQ pork, or burgers. This is best served at room temperature.
