Brazilian Chicken

Brazilian Chicken by John Spottiswood

After watching Brazil come back from 2-0 to beat the US 3-2 in soccer last weekend, I got an itch to try some Brazilian BBQ. If figured if I can't rejoice in victory, at least I can enjoy the food they'll serve at their parties!

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.

Grilled Chicken Breast with Chimichurri

Grilled Chicken Breast with Chimichurri by Nancy Miyasaki

This simple to make sauce and marinade is one of the best parts of Argentinian cooking. While I've normally eaten Chimichurri with steak, it is possibly even more delicious with white meat chicken. You won't be disappointed.

Slow-cooker Beef Stew from Argentina

Slow-cooker Beef Stew from Argentina by John Spottiswood

I slightly adapted thie famous Argentine beef stew to be slightly more flavorful...and thus to my liking. The extra cumin seeds, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper don't take away from the flavor of the meat and vegetables, but they give an added kick that makes this classic family stew extraordinary. We had it at our family reunion,…

Quinoa and peanut soup (Sopa de Mani)

Quinoa and peanut soup (Sopa de Mani) by Easy Cook - Laka kuharica

This delicious and nutritious soup is a modern take on a traditional Bolivian soup called Sopa de Mani. Easy suggestion: there are many variations of this soup. Like Bolivians you can add meat (chicken or beef cut into small pieces), or peppers cut into strips; diced beet; rice; pasta; chopped parsley.

Simple Chimichurri Sauce

Simple Chimichurri Sauce by Madi Moreno de Arjona

I found out about this sauce when I ordered some steaks from Schwan's and fell in love with it. I have tried a lot of recipes but this has come close, and now thanks to a new restaurant in McAllen "SOLO EMPANADAS", now I can enjoy it when ever I want without having to make it. By the way this tastes great on pork, chicken, toasted…
