These are scrambled eggs with a Mexican twist that can be served any time of the day. They don't require baking time however; they are slipped under the broiler to melt the cheese. Sometimes I heat the tortillas briefly in the microwave before dipping in the sauce to keep them from cracking when rolling them up. Recipe is from Sunset Mexican Cook Book.
I've made and eaten my fair share of tamales and these are the best sweet tamales I have ever eaten! This is an Emeril Lagasse recipe and has become a new family tradition. My DBF suggested that next year we only make these and skip the pork tamales! I didn't use the banana leaves but instead soaked about 40 corn husks in warm water for 1/2 an hour and used those.
Sweet fried dough that is wonderful for dessert or breakfast. These are best served warm and have a mild banana flavor. Recipe slightly adapted from Ivy Stark. Prep & Servings are an estimate. These are wonderful served with Mexican Banana Splits.
This is party food from the Cinco de Mayo Party article in Sunset magazine. Recipe courtesy Thomas Schnetz the owner of a popular Oakland restaurant. If you like garlic, and you like shrimp, you'll love this recipe!
I'm posting this because my mom found a recipe for enchiladas on this site and could not find adobo seasoning in the market. She found a jar of adobo similar to mole but it would have turned her enchiladas verdes into enchiladas negros. This is a seasoning mix I found on the web from The Daisy Cooks show on PBS.
This is as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside. It is a little drier than most tres leches cakes so if you are looking for a very wet tres leches you might want to try another recipe. If you are looking for a cake that will impress your guests you should give this a try. You can find evaporated goat milk right next to the canned condensed and evaporated milk in the grocery isle. This cake is time consuming but worth it! Recipe from Sunset May 2007.
Courtesy of Gourmet Magazine. This is like a cross between pumpkin pie and flan. It is easy to make and looks impressive. You can use recipe #78053 or recipe #108469 for the whipped cream. Prep time includes refrigeration.
