This soup is really yummy and healthy too! This makes a main dish accompanied by tortillas, or crusty french bread and a nice salad!Caribbean, Cuban, Mexican and Spanish influences! It really is best if the beans are soaked overnight.And depending on your cooker, the soup might need to be cooked longer.
Sazon is a common seasoning used in Caribbean cooking and also in Spain. Try this homemade version! Two reviewers have told me this is actually a sofrito, that sazon is a dry mix. I'm so sorry if I have offended anyone. I don't remember where I got this(some magazine long ago), so they were misinformed. I do hope you enjoy it anyway!
This is yummy over fish and any kind of meat! I also like to have it over rice and grains. I think this would be great as a pizza topping! These ingredients are used in the Caribbean, Mexico, Spain and the Southwest, also Hawaii(Western USA).
A quick spurt of herb oil does wonders for tuna, shrimp or scallops, polenta, risotto and cooked or uncooked salads. You can keep this oil in a plastic spray bottle! Clayton Babas, Executive Chef, at the Guam Reef Hotel makes this for the guests.
This is from The Ultimate Weight Solution Cookbook by Dr. Phil McGraw. This is a delicious vegetarian entree with the unusual addition of Swiss chard(a plant so high in vitamins and minerals that it has been deemed worthy of growing on planetary space stations!) This is TexMex, but also Spanish and Mexican influenced.
This is a refreshing chilled soup that combines the best of summer in one bowl and is topped off with a cooling sauce. Accompany it with grilled or toasted crusty bread. From Cooking Pleasures magazine.
Mexican and Spanish inspired baked tomatoes, filled with corn, jalapeno and bell pepper, Monterey Jack cheese, basil, and cilantro! This recipe can be easily halved or doubled. Adapted from the New Basics Cookbook.
This is a spicy, smoky, sweet barbecue sauce that can be used to glaze grilled meat and poultry. It may also be used for tofu! You may also serve this on the side. Adapted from Food and Wine magazine. A Mexican Spanish inspired recipe!
This is kind of like a hush puppy with the fish inside of it!I got this from a Walmart card! The recipe calls for hushpuppy mix, but the computer won't let me say it, so I have put biscuit mix.
Mexico, Spain, the South, all use these ingredients!
