A friend brought this to a pot lock at work. I almost finished the whole thing! It is great with crackers or as a spread on bread. You can enjoy it alone or together with fresh vegetables such as any greens, tomatoes or even fish, chicken or ham. I love the fresh taste of it! It keeps a few days in the fridge. I also would like to try it with cottage cheese instead of the feta.
Adobo is a very popular marinade for pork and other meats in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean and Central America. The ingredients vary widely, but most have a base of oil, garlic and some type of acidic ingredient.
I love having a big scoop of cream cheese on my bagel, but that comes with a price - a load of fat and calories! This is one of my favorite altenative. They have the creamy cheese texture and taste very refreshing! With the calories of 2 tablespoons of cream cheese, I could have a cup of this yogurt spread! (and I DO use a whole cup for one bagel). I would definitely stick with the Greek yogurt for a whipped texture, using other types of yogurt may be very runny. It is heavenly with powered sugar but I use Stevia to cut down on sugar intake.
Warp-Speed because you make it in the microwave - no all-day cooking for this spicy-sweet spread! My kids like to put it on their toast, and pretend they're having pumpkin pie for breakfast! It does taste like pumpkin pie filling, and makes a wonderful hostess gift. Make sure your recipient puts this right into the refrigerator! NOTE: Don't try to "home can" this. It's hard to get the dense-textured pumpkin hot enough in the center to assure it has processed properly, and from what I've seen, the USDA recommends against it. Just make a small batch up when you want to give someone a treat! Microwave times are approximate, as ovens vary.
Really nice dressing! One measure of a good home cook is the ability to make your own salad dressing. Or so says Mark Bittman in the food section of the New York Times. This is the orange dressing you sometimes see on your too-cold salad in Japanese restaurants. I made this tonight, and thought it was much better than any other I ever tried at a Japanese restaurant! I made this with half the corn oil, so if you'd like to try the original recipe you can increase amount to 1/4 cup. I did not decrease the sesame oil (but did use regular).
A delicious version of a classic made healthier by using chicken broth in place of olive oil. However sub oil for broth if you wish. Serve with pita chips made by cutting pita pockets into eighths. Split each eighth in half, spray with olive oil cooking spray, sprinkle with oregano or greek seasoning and toast for 7 minutes at 425 degrees.
Smokey chipotle chiles in a rich tomato sauce spiced with vinegar,garlic and onion and lightly sweetened with dark brown sugar. Refrigerator in an airtight container. To make a spicy sauce blend cooked, seeded chipotle in a blender till smooth. You can add back some seeds for heat and texture.
This is a Mexican appetizer that is addicting. When it is completed, it looks like a snowy mountain, thus the name. It is a large appetizer that works great for parties. This does not include time for chilling. I got this from my friend Karen when I lived in California. Update (5/31/2013): I realized after a recent review and myself also making this recipe for a Memorial Day cookout, that I make my own changes to the recipe that I didn't add/edit original recipe when posting, so I have now added corrections to the onion/tomato mixture and amounts of cheese.
I go this out of the local newspaper. I LOVE, LOVE this dip, in fact a friend of mine and I make it and finish it all in one sitting. Great with corn chips. My main suggestion is to have some sort of breath freshener available afterwards.
My daughter Rachel loves hummus. I finally found some tahinni so I threw this togeather one night. It was very yummy. Hope you all like it! Very low fat, high protein and high fiber. It is the perfect light lunch or after school snack.
