This is my own version of a brunch dish I had many times in Mexico. Ingredients can be as authentic as you make them, though in a hurry canned beans and salsa in a jar can be subbed. I LOVE this dish!! If you're using jar salsa and like things extra spicy, slice some jalepenos into the mix. Prep time doesn't include overnight bean soak and 2 hour simmer if using dried beans.
My favorite flauta recipe, from a Mexican cookbook by Jane Milton. The addition of cheese inside makes them very tasty! I serve these with crema (or sour creme) and homemade salsa. Cook time is for total endeavor, but doesn't include chicken prep as I often use pre-cooked or leftover chicken.
Classic and easy salsa verde that can be thrown together quite quickly. Great for cooking as well as dipping. Don't mistake the ease of the recipe for lack of flavor, as real spice lovers will appreciate the simplicity in taste! I am VERY generous with cilantro and also like to keep many of the seeds. Hope you enjoy! Yield is approximate.
Got this from Fitness magazine (July 2003). The difference between this tart and others similar that I've had is the crust. Delicious!!! I used splenda and fat-free cream cheese for even less guilt (alright, I did it so I could eat more...)but it's hardly a splurge if you go full-on. Of course, I'd never substitute good, old-fashioned butter. This tart is really pretty, and can be used with most any in-season fruit. Enjoy!
This recipe came from the nice mother of a guy I dated while living in Mexico. Very easy and flexible, can be adjusted with low-fat ingredients or lemons or oranges can be substituted for a different taste. I prefer mine frozen, though it is not originally intended to be. The Galletas Marias cookies can be found in the Hispanic section of my local supermarket. If you can't find them, a graham or other light cookie crust will work fine. Prep time includes freezing.
