Fresh Tomato Salsa

Fresh Tomato Salsa by Phyllis Munro

I love making fresh salsa! This is great served with chips, taco's I made a batch this evening to serve with my Huevos Rancheros! This salsa is a snap to make if you purchase that handy dandy chopper I was talking about in an earlier post. You can see by the photo everything is evenly chopped. I slice my tomatoes and then pop the…

Cowboy Caviar

Cowboy Caviar by Lynn Yamamoto

This is fresh, healthy and delicious. People love it, even kids. You can make it ahead, so it's great for a summer party. Serve it with scoop-shaped tortilla chips, or have it on the side as a relish. I add extra cilantro, because there can never be too much cilantro!

Mexican Chocoflan (Pastel Imposible -- Impossible Cake) by Kathleen is Cooking in Mexico

A chocolate cake baked with flan on the top. When done, the flan is now on the bottom, but when the cake is inverted, it is back on top! A great favorite at Mexican fiestas, this cake is delicious and beautiful.

Chile Rellenos

Chile Rellenos by Unorthodox Epicure

Chile Rellenos are traditionally cooked in a light, airy batter. While that is a delicious method, Panko provides more contrast in consistency — and seems to absorb less oil.

Chiles Rellenos

Chiles Rellenos by Kathleen is Cooking in Mexico

An iconic dish of Mexico -- roasted, peeled poblano chiles stuffed with cheese, dipped in an egg batter and fried. Served with a simple tomato sauce. Warmed, left-over chile rellenos are great as a sandwich in a toasted bun. Photos and more detailed instructions are on my blog, cookinginmexico.com

Carnitas

Carnitas by Sergio Hernandez

Carnitas are the Mexican version of pulled pork. Braised first in a spicy sauce, pork shoulder is slow cooked until so tender the meat just shreds easily with a fork, then it's roasted at high heat to make crispy browned bits full of flavor.

Salsa de Chile Pequin

Salsa de Chile Pequin by Kathleen is Cooking in Mexico

This is an authentic Mexican salsa, all the more interesting because of its chunky style. Piquin chiles are very small, but very hot, with a smoky, citrusy flavor. If you can't find piquines, substitute any fresh, hot chile. This is an easy salsa to make with few ingredients. The techniques of toasting the tomato and chiles and…

Mexican Loco Moco

Mexican Loco Moco by John Spottiswood

I made this for breakfast because I had a bunch of left over mexican rice and a mix of whole and refried beans. Our kids love Loco Moco, a Hawaiian breakfast dish of ground beef patties and eggs over white rice with brown gravy on top. If you haven't had that before, it is great comfort food. This mexican version is equally good…
