    Lime and salt perfection. These are not really sweet which the guys love! If you want it sweeter replace the lime juice with sweetened lime juice and/or rim the glass with sugar.

    Recipe #166284

    Yummy side dish we make a lot in my home. Goes great with lots of different main dishes! Hope you enjoy it!

    Recipe #198418

    While trying to help my dear friend Mommy Diva find some New Mexico style red chile sauce, I came across this recipe. I just have to try it! According to Diana Kennedy[], Pasilla chilies are a long and skinny variety of chile, while Ancho chilies (dried poblanos) are shorter and wider. However, in certain parts of Mexico, the Ancho chile is called Pasilla, and because of immigration, is commonly known as Pasilla in many parts of the US. See blog here with step by step pictures! Prep and cooking time are concurrent Note when working with chilies, either wear protective gloves or wash your hands very thoroughly with soap and warm water after handling the chilies. Do not touch or rub your eyes if you have been handling chili peppers.

    Recipe #359363

    DH hates anything green! BUT he caught me watching Food Network (instead of doing housework! lol) and said "WOW- that looks AMAZING! This was the recipe, but of course I have tweeked it a little! They used whole poblanos which would be great. Please feel free to choose whichever you would like poblanos or bell peppers.

    Recipe #253366

    We love to baste this over chicken or pork. Really perks up a plain old chicken breast! Also great over leftover meats.

    Recipe #319797

    Cactus is a common and tasty food item in Mexico and parts of SW USA. Cactus, or NOPALES as they are known in Texas and Mexico, can be found fresh and needle free in the produce section. You can even find jars of Nopales or Nopalitos (little (pieces of) Nopales) in the ethnic aisle of your grocery store. If you choose to use those please drain them and rinse them well. Green Beans or chayote can be substituted if cactus is not available. The nutritional info here is not correct as the olive oil is used for coating the items you are grilling and in the dressing. Not all of it is consumed. This recipe is from La Comida Del Barrio (meaning Foods from the neighborhood) Latin American Cooking in the U.S., by Aaron Sanchez (Clarkson Potter, 2003) This dish would be wonderful with any Mexican cerveza (beer) or with a crisp and fruity Sauvignon Blanc.

    Recipe #334305

    My favorite red sauce! This is wonderful on so many things. Try it as an enchilada sauce, stir into leftover rice for a red rice side, mix with left over shredded roast or chicken, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination! Tangy and slightly spicy with a hint of sweetness. Enjoy this, experiment with it, change it, add to it and make it your own.

    Recipe #178650

    Authentic black beans made from scratch and WAY better than anything that comes out of a can! Not that there is anything wrong with beans that way! Just that these are as different as night and day when compared to canned. You could probably save time and use canned beans in place of the dried. Just be sure to rinse very very well. I am finally getting some of my 'secret' (lol) recipes on Zaar. Since I tend to measure in my hand or just add a 'pinch' of this or 'enough' of that it is difficult to post the ones that I make here day in and day out. This is a recipe that I can make probably with my eyes closed! Dark beer is too strongly flavored and Light Beer not strong enough for this so use a regular beer. Dos Equis (XX) or even Budweiser beer works well here. You could also used dried herbs and spices but your mouth will be rewarded if you use fresh. I learned how to cook lots of different authentic Mexican dishes from several different friends over the years. The biggest and best thing I think I learned was do not rub your eyes after handling chilies! lol Wear gloves if you like! Learned that one FAST! I also learned how to make salsa's- NOT what we think of as salsa but rather a sauce or seasoning paste that is used to then season various dishes. Making a blended seasoning paste to add to the beans is a great way to punch up the flavor. After compiling all that knowledge with my 'gueralita' background this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy too! Oh and plan ahead! The dried beans need to soak!

    Recipe #320345

    Probably completely different than any corn dish you have tasted before- unless you have bought this from a street vendor in a Latin country or an area gretly influenced by the hispanic culture like Texas or Florida! This method really brings out the sweetness in the corn. I enjoyed this so much when I visited Mexico. You could see people all over town eating this on the cob as they stroll and shop. I think it makes a fabulously different side, especially when bbqing or grilling. They are called esquites- es-KEY-tays or elotes- a-LOW-tays- depending on the location. We just call 'em good! Hope you like it!

    Recipe #161110

    SUPERB! is the only way I can describe this AUTHENTIC Mexican dish served at Las Manitas or little hands, an amazing restaurant in the heart of Austin owned by sisters Lidia and Cynthia Perez. Sad day :( This restaurant closed 9/4 due to downtown development in Austin. We miss you Las Manitas! Hurry back so we can come to your new location! The Congress Avenue cafe is as much an Austin institution as the bats under the bridge. Food for the eye is served here as well! The owners are also the founders of La Pena, an organization to promote Latin arts, and display this amazing artwork proudly. So if you find yourself in our beautiful capitol make sure you stop in for an amazing treat! If you can't make it to Texas, bring Texas to you with this amazing recipe!

    Recipe #164685

    Yummy side dish my family begs for time and again! The green chilies are mild and give just the right amount of zip! Enjoy!

    Recipe #253032

    I LOVE Margaritas and I LOVE Shrimp! So, why not combine the two? Remember to serve with a BIG Margarita to drink! Tart, sweet, spicy, lime, shrimp and TEQUILA! Oh ya! Updated after Culinary's review and wonderful suggestion to serve this with more of the same! So save some limes and salt to finish it off if you like! Oh and another Margarita would be good too please! lol Serves 4 as Main dish and generous 8 as an appy- more if you are not so generous! lol!

    Recipe #253570

    Fresh and flavorful! Fantastic salsa that is a cool and refreshing treat in summer or anytime! Fast, fresh and flavorful! Try this on top of grilled chicken breast, grilled fish or as an appetizer with chips. From The National Mango Board.

    Recipe #319712

    Just the name cracks me up! This is a great salsa! It might seem unusual for you but serve this warm! It is a great change of pace! This is also great on top of tacos or enchiladas or anything!

    Recipe #319790

    Delicious and wonderful way to serve whole fish. Completely wrapped in aluminum foil makes for easy clean up but also seals in all the flavor and delicious goodness. The lime and orange juice here combine to create a sour orange juice which may not be readily available in other areas.
