Are your taste buds ready to explode? Do you want to dance with fire? You know it! The array of neon-colored Mexican candies had long tempted me at my local Latin market, so finally some friends and I held a proper tasting — and it turned into quite a party. Read on for our review of these out-of-control sweets!
We really need only the barest excuse to cook Mexican food, and Cinco de Mayo is permission to go all out. This year, we'll be celebrating with super slow-cooked pork and chicken tingas served up on crispy fried tostadas with a sprinkle of queso fresco. Ever had this dish?
Good morning! How's about some hot and spicy chilaquiles to get your day started off right? A little extra dash of Srircaha on that?
This recipe comes from The Sriracha Cookbook: 50 "Rooster Sauce" Recipes That Pack a Punch by Randy Clemens. Considering our long and well-documented love affair with Sriracha brand hot sauce, this cookbook hits close to our hearts and even closer to our stomachs.
Sometimes fried eggs can't agree if they want to be doused in a spicy-tart green tomatillo salsa or a smoky red tomato-chile salsa. Sadly, the disagreements often end in divorce, but if I ever start feeling too bad about it, I just eat a plate of huevos divorciados, one of my favorite Mexican breakfasts. It always makes things better.
Maybe it's the reports from Austin's SXSW conference that are still coming in. Maybe it's the ridiculously warm and welcome weather we've been having on the West Coast. (Sorry, East Coast! Come visit?) Either way, we're craving Tex-Mex and we're craving it bad.
This shredded braised beef in a rich sauce with a spicy kick tastes better than you can imagine. Really, it's that good. And cooking it in a slow cooker means you can have it ready and waiting when you come home from work!
Q: About a year and a half ago we moved to a different state, and had to leave behind our favorite authentic Mexican restaurant. I have been working to recreate these dishes at home, but I can’t figure out the cheese they use. It is a white, shredded cheese that has a very salty flavor. It is about the consistency of mozzarella, but has a much stronger flavor.
We were lucky enough to get in touch with Jenna and Mark of Sweet Fine Day. Their quick recipe for a batch of sweet potato, pickled onion, and scrambled egg tacos is easy, tangy and induces a sweet fine morning!
Earlier today we wrote about Creating a Día de los Muertos Altar. One of the most important offerings is a sweet egg bread called pan de muerto, or "bread of the dead." Flavored with orange or anise, the bread is often shaped into skulls, bones, or people. Check out these inspiring examples of homemade pan de muerto!
