Carnitas is a very famous Mexican dish. It does involve a lot of cooking time, so I make it when I have time. Serve with fresh homemade corn tortillas, guacamole, cheese and pico de gallo with cilantro.....yum.
Are you craving that great Mexican rice from your favorite taco stand? Here it is. This is just like a good Mexican restaurant rice. Many recipes taste good... but the texture just isn't right. You know how it is... you have prepared scores of Mexican rice recipes but always have been disappointed. It may be delicious but kinda "gloopy and wet." Try this. Everything is pureed and cooked in. There are no chunks of anything... just dry fluffy rice with all the seasonings and just the tiniest hint of a tomato flavor. I will throw away all of my Mexican rice recipes- this is the one I have been looking for for years!
I don't own a rice cooker but some people have had disappointing results using one. You will also need to adjust your cooking time if you want to use brown rice. I recommend following the cooking instructions as directed. Proceed at your own peril if you stray.
I'm always challenged to come up with my family's favorite Mexican food. This is a tried and true recipe that is so easy to make that no one knows how simple but delicious Chile Verde can be. ***** Served with Recipe#282467 makes a complete meal ;)
This is quite tasty, the jalapeno pepper is only optional I like to add in for extra heat, Italian sausages with the casings removed may be used in place of the ground beef or use ground turkey, I also like to add in some cooked crumbled bacon or smoked dry sliced sausage but that is only optional :)
This recipe was originally submitted by Mean Chef (IHHDRO). I adopted it after he left the site. The text from my original review stated, "Excellent guacamole! I didn't have any serrano peppers on hand and subbed a some finely diced jalapenos. The flavor of this was so fresh and wonderful. I love avocados and this was guac at its best." I go through phases of craving guacamole and have tried other recipes, but always come back to this one.
I got this years ago from the lady in our church who canned it. I've never made it but I've eaten lots of it! It's the best salsa I have ever had. Especially good with lime tortilla chips or on taco salad (recipe #102234).
This homemade salsa is comparable to some of the best I have had at Mexican/Tex-Mex restaurants and beats anything you can buy off the shelf. Of course this is one persons opinion. Try it for yourself.
Yeah Mon! This cool and refreshing fruit salsa is a perfect side accompaniment for tempering the heat of your favorite grilled jerk seasoned meat. Cooking time is the time to chill. Submitted for RSC #8.
A family favorite! I often make it to freeze in portions for my family to take to work (reheats easily in a microwave). I generally make this as low-fat as possible using skim milk, low-fat cheeses, tortillas & soups.
This is the filling to my Enchilada Sauce Recipe.
The amounts of each is just estimates. This all depends on how much you put in each tortilla, how big your tortillas are and if you use just one, two or all three choices.
If you make all three you can use toothpicks to mark which one is which. None for one, flat for another and round for the last.
Living in Texas, my family loves Tex-Mex and Mexican food. I always seem to have a hard time finding a rice recipe that my whole family can agree on. I came up with this recipe on my own and everyone seems to like it.
