Chilaquiles Rojos (Red Chilaquiles)

If I ask you what is your favourite Mexican breakfast, I am almost sure that you will say chilaquiles and to be honest with you, I do not blame you! Chilaquiles are everybody’s favourite. Crispy tortilla chips cover in a spicy salsa, fresh cheese, sour […]

Jalapeños Rellenos (Stuffed Jalapeños)

Jalapeño peppers are those little green things that they look really spicy, but they are not, they are just some really good chillies and as my son Emilio calls them, they are  little green torpedoes that can add lots of flavour to your food, you […]

Nopalitos Rellenos (Cheese Stuffed Nopalitos)

This is a wonderful recipe, I would say is the sort of deconstruction of “Nopales in Chile Colorado” recipe but with a twist, the egg coating. In Mexico egg coating is very popular, the most popular dish is “Chiles Rellenos” which you can find here in […]
