Lets Cook Mexican

Month: October 2015

El Día de los Muertos (Day of The Dead)

La muerte es un espejo que refleja las vanas gesticulaciones de la vida. Toda esa abigarrada confusión de actos, omisiones, arrepentimientos y tentativas —obras y sobras— que es cada vida, encuentran en la muerte, ya que no sentido o explicación, fin. Frente a ella nuestra […]

Bistec Ranchero (Ranch Style Bistec)

Today I decided to cook my dad’s favourite breakfast because I am celebrating that my Instagram account had reached 2000 followers, so that means a lot to me. There are two thousand people follow me in this Mexican food adventure, so that for me is […]

Chiles Rellenos (Stuffed Chillies)

  Chiles Rellenos originated in the city of Puebla, Mexico, in the traditional recipe the pepper is coated in egg and fried, but I made them the way my family makes them and it is a more healthier option, no frying involved.

Nopales con Huevo (Cactus with Scrambled Eggs)

  I have so many nice food memories of my childhood while living in Mexico. One of them is my dad bringing a big bag of cactus and he would sit outside to take the prickly bit off, then patiently he would chopped them one […]

Rajas con Crema (Poblano Strips with Cream)

This is a classic recipe to have in your Mexican recipes repertoire. In my family my sister Cynthia is the one that makes the best “rajas con crema” ever, she always puts the  “je ne sais quoi” (“no sé qué” in Spanish) touch.

Salsa de Chile Puya (Puya Chilli Salsa)

Puya is a chilli similar to guajillo, but a bit more spicy. I would say that is a combination of guajillo and arbol chilli, in fact, a lot people get confused between these two, as Puya looks very similar to arbol chilli, but Puya is […]

Dulce de Calabaza (Pumpkin in Syrup)

  One of the dishes that I will always have in my heart is”dulce de calabaza” or “Calabaza en tacha” as some people call it. For me, this recipe totally takes me back to my childhood, I remember going to visit my grandma in Sinaloa […]

Puerco en Salsa Verde (Pork in Green Sauce)

  Things always tastes better with a salsa and this is the case of pork shoulder! I bought pork shoulder in chunks and cook it in this amazing tomatillo salsa.

Tostadas Horneadas (Oven Bake Tostadas)

  This is a very simple, basic, healthy and easy way to make tostadas. In México Tostadas are very popular, you can put many types of toppings. My favourite toppings are seafood and fish. Every tostada starts as a tortilla, maize tortilla, then this tortilla […]
