Yaniqueques (Dominican Johny Cakes)

Yaniqueques (Dominican Johny Cakes) by Yolanda Fernandez

Yaniqueque is flat bread, usually round. It is made with ingredients such as flour, salt, and water. This is a comfort food in the Dominican Republic.

Cumin Chicken

Cumin Chicken by John Spottiswood

The combined flavors of cumin and oregano in this seasoning is just phenomenal with poultry. This recipe is adapted from Allen Susser's New World Cuisine. It is one of our favorites. Even as we have moved toward more of a vegetable-centric cuisine, this has remained a staple.

Creamy Chicken Tortillia Soup

Creamy Chicken Tortillia Soup by Jon Shores

This started as a Wolfgang Puck recipe (renowned Mexican chef!). I've made it probably 100 times and the variations I've adopted as my own. The "creamy" moniker is mine, though the recipe has no dairy in it. It can be modified as spicy or not depending on the number of jalapenos used. Enjoy.

Homemade Smoked Sazon (Seasoning)

Homemade Smoked Sazon (Seasoning) by myra byanka

Don't buy Goya. Make your own dry sazon for Latin American cooking. This recipe contains no msg, is super easy to make, and is used to prepare meats, poultry, beans, soups, stews, etc. Annato powder (achiote) adds a beautiful color to dishes, such as rice.

Sofrito is added to things like soups, stews, sauces, rice, chicken dishes, etc. This version is made with ingredients readily available in groceries and Latin markets in America.
