Delicious mojito chicken surrounded by an ocean of tasty rice and topped with a fresh salsa. This is a long recipe with lots of ingredients but it makes an entire meal that will please both company and family. I hope you enjoy this creation I made for RSC8.

Recipe #161348

This yummy rice is a great way to sneak some veggies into your loved ones who would otherwise pass on them. Wonderful change from the usual red Spanish rice usually served with Tex Mex or Mexican foods. Similar to the rice served in one of my fave Mexican Restaurants in Houston, Guadalajara. I liked it so much I HAD to try to duplicate it when we moved away. This is as close as I can get. Hope you like it!

Groovy color! You are gonna wanna try this one!

Recipe #193560

We have come to adore this chicken. Part of a meal I created for RSC 8 recipe#161348. Here is just the chicken for those who want a simpler recipe. We use boneless skinless chicken breasts but use whatever you like. This marinade is enough for one whole chicken cut up or 8 pieces. I have included the weight just to give you an idea. Of course, it will weigh more if the pieces have bones.

Recipe #198417

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

Recipe #198418

Traditional recipe with ingredients that have been updated to ones more accessible to us in the USA but this is the same recipe and method used by Mexican families for generations! (The soy sauce is a recent AND YUMMY addition) I saw an Alton Brown show recently in which he used this same method of cooking! The hair dryer is a new generation update- in the 'old days' they just fanned the flames to rid the ashes. UPDATE: 9/2009 Due to a review that this was a little to sweet I have edited the recipe with that in mind. Please adjust the amount of onion and sweetness to your personal taste. Thanks Steph for the input! I do appreciate it! I always enjoy others opinions and ideas!

Recipe #234110

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

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

Dh begged me to post this one. This is a recipe that Sammy Hagar and Guy Fieri , of Food Network, created together. Since Sammy is a HERO in dh's eyes he KNEW this would be an awesome recipe! The calorie count is NOT correct here because the program counts the marinade as though you eat it too! Yuck! Toss the marinade!

Recipe #253491

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

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

I LOVE these spinach enchiladas. They are just like the ones served at one of my fave restaurants! If you like spinach, you will love these. If you don't like spinach- you will probably find that this recipe changes your mind. (Altered recipe after reviews regarding the saltiness and amount of sauce. I have not had that problem, but do not want anyone to have a bad result. Please do try this and enjoy it.)

Recipe #166579

Spicy and slightly sweet grilled chicken. This will make your taste bugs WAKE UP and SING! Can even be OAMC- Thanks Tish! If freezing ahead: Put ingredients in a ziploc bag and place in freezer, flattened. To cook from frozen: Thaw in refrigerator. Cook as directed.

Recipe #172142

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

Looking for something different? Try this for something new and tropical! You will love it! Guava has a sweet vanilla-like flavor that pairs wonderfully with the mint and rum.

Recipe #166675

The minute I got these ingredients it was down the hatch! Adjust the amount of lime and mint to your personal taste. These are amazing and refreshing!

Recipe #166673

Two great dinks in one fancy little glass!

Recipe #166279

This is what I would serve at a typical supper here at my house when I am pressed for time and need something fast and filling. I have used ground turkey or ground chicken with great results but there is no reason that you could not use plain old ground beef. Hope you like it!

Recipe #165949

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

Easiest, freshest and tastiest salsa ever!
