    This recipe is from an Ina Garten Thanksgiving Desserts Special. I am planning to make this for christmas instead and I might use cream cheese IF I don't have marscapone on hand or cannot find any at my local grocery store.

    Recipe #400579

    *** THIS IS MY VERSION OF THE RECIPE. PLEASE KEEP THAT IN MIND BEFORE COMPARING IT. IT'S ALSO HELPFUL TO ACTUALLY MAKE THE RECIPE*** My family enjoys these little cakes. I usually cut them in half, place on top of shredded cabbage and either drizzle a little bit of Sarita's All Purpose Tomato Sauce on top or serve it on the side as a dipping sauce. A tortilla press makes the process of flattening the cakes easier. If you do not have one you can just use a rolling pin but just place the masa ball inbetween two sheets of parchment paper to prevent it from sticking to the rolling pin. If you do not have the chicken bullion then you will have to add extra salt and the taste will not be the same. I recommend making and frying one meat pie before making the rest just to make sure that the thickness of the masa is good and not to thick that the masa inside is raw when fried.

    Recipe #398248

    This is the sauce that I use to top almost all my recipes that ask for a sauce topping. I also serve it on the side as a dipping sauce. It is simple and easy to make.

    Recipe #398247

    This recipe is very simple and budget friendly. Many of the basic kitchen staples used in many central american countries are included in this recipe. During cold winter months, I always use this recipe as a back up in case I get stumped as to what to make for lunch or dinner

    Recipe #398049

    These tamales are very different from the regular mexican tamales. The masa is different as is the filling and the wrapping. Nacatamales are usually only made for special occasions or christmas as they are very time consuming and labor intensive but the end product is well worth it. Learning how to make these is a huge milestone in my culture. They can be made vegeterian if you subsitute the chicken broth for veggie broth, the lard for veggie shortening, omit the meat and add sliced zucchini/spinach/sauted poblano peppers with onions or anything else you wish. The masa is the most difficult part. It requires alot of water/broth and constant mixing so that is does not burn (almost like making a roux). It might take a couple of tries before you can get the consitency of the masa right. Too much lard, the masa is too greasy. Too much water it becomes very sticky (like cookie dough). Too little water, the masa will be very dry. Once you can make the masa right, you can make these with your eyes closed

    Recipe #397321

    I have been eating this soup since I was a little kid. It is a staple recipe in hispanic third world countries. I especially enjoy it during cold winter months. It is usually served with rice and warn corn tortillas.

    Recipe #395483

    Recipe came from the Wiliams-Sonoma Cookies recipe book. Some tips: Preheat oven atleast 15 min before. Follow all instructions. Have butter at room temp and egg at room temp. before beginning.

    Recipe #394305

    It was Sunday and I had not gone to the store. Both my pantry and fridge were bare and the weather was rainy and cold. I was really in the mood for some of Olive Garden's Tuscana Soup so I used what I had available and using a little creativity I created a nice soup for a cold rainy day that was not like the Tuscana soup but it satisfied my craving for something similar to it.

    Recipe #394279

    3 simple ingredients make a great dinner party or holiday dessert. My grandmother made this special treat during the holidays. Incredibly easy! Even the children will be asking for more! The acorn squash can be interchanged with pumpkin, butternut, buttercup, (almost any winter squash) and mangos. Do not handle the squash too much when serving as the meaty part will be soft and can easily me mashed by a heavy handed spoon. The squash is cooked with the skin on. Without it, the squash will be mushy.

    Recipe #390827

    From food networks "Tyler Florence Ultimate". I really enjoyed this recipe, not to mention that it is family friendly. I am not that fond of cooking with wine but this Italian classic is a keeper! I used bacon as I did not have prosciutto and I did could not find "sweet marsala cooking wine" so I used regular marsala, either way it came out great!

    Recipe #389657

    Simple and delicious. My grandmother made this alot when I was growing up and I still can't get enough of them.

    Recipe #387972

    Williams-Sonoma Essentials of Baking book recipe. This cake came out very delicious and taste great with a cup of coffee. Just a couple of words of wisdom to newbie bakers: Always sift your dry ingredients (this helps make your cake lighter instead of denser). Make sure your eggs and butter are at room temp (otherwise your cake would not be as smooth). Follow instructions/measurements PRECISELY! Grease and flour your pan very well (this will help very much when it comes time to removing the cake from the pan). Have all your ingredients on hand and read the recipe before beginning (take it from me, you don't want to end up skipping a step or missing an ingredient because you rushed thru it). Do not open the oven while it is baking. Invest in buying a pastry blender. Always let the cake cool in the pan the indicated time or your cake will fall apart to pieces if you remove it to soon from the pan. This recipe requires atleast 3 medium-large mixing bowls. The following ingredients include one recipe for streusel and one recipe for the cake batter.

    Recipe #387815

    Learned this recipe from my uncle who is the king of Q' and chicharrones! Very simple and can easily be turned into a wonderful easy meal. Just add salsa, onions and warm tortillas and you got your self some taquitos de chicharrones. Also makes a great breakfast taco. When choosing the meat, make sure to buy pork meat that has nearly the same meat to fat ratio (50/50). It will usually come cubed or cut up and ready for chicharrones (or it can sometimes be labeled as meat for carnitas). The difference is that carnitas take hours to bake and they are usually shredded afterwards and chicharrones have a higher fat content, take about 30 mins to fry and are not shredded. Be very careful when frying as chicharrones tend to splatter (a splatter screen comes in handy now). Avoid using a fork to handle pork during cooking process as piercing it causes juices (what makes meat tender) to leak out. Use tongs instead.

    Recipe #387677

    Authentic chile rellenos are not battered in flour or cornmeal. The only thing that they are dipped in is eggs. I know this because I have watched real mexican cooks make these in guadalajara mexico. They are a bit tiddious to make but I asure you that the outcome will be well worth it. I do not mind the work that goes into it becuase I enjoy the wonderful impression on my guests faces when they take a bite of this authentic dish. You should serve sauce over them as there really is not a chille relleno with out a sauce (you can look up multipurpose tomato sauce for my particular recipe). You can use toothpicks to help keep the chilles closed during frying but make sure to remove them after cooking. A rule of thumb that I use is that I use 1 egg as batter per chile, for example: 6 eggs for 6 chiles. Also make sure to drain fried chiles very well on a paper towel. When buying poblano peppers, try to find wide peppers. Usually these are easier to handle when frying. It is better to buy cheese that you can slice and not shredd as it is easier to stuff and it holds it shape better.

    Recipe #385164

    Why go to your local taco stop when you can make your own authentic carnitas at home. Very simple, just throw ingredients in pan and put in oven. Taste delicious with warm corn tortillas, chopped onions and chopped cilantro.

    Recipe #382384

    These chicken wings are pretty simple and tasty. Enjoy!

    Recipe #378329

    Easy and delicous. Taste way better than the box.

    Recipe #378286

    So easy, that even the most novice cook can make this. And it is delicious! It is a typical delicasy in Southern Mexico, Central America and the Carribean. It is best to choose plantains (not bananas) that are yellow with black spots (as shown in the picture), as these will be sweet and tender and will fry even more delicious! Enjoy by itself with sour cream or as a side dish (as shown in the picture).

    Recipe #378245

    Easy to make on a weeknight. I actually just threw this together and it came out pretty good.

    Recipe #378032

    Tender and stick to your ribs meal. The Goya Sazon is in most food stores in the Mexican isle next to the powder spices in a small yellow/orange box but you can most certainly find it in Mexican specialty stores.
