This is a spicy salad dressing that goes very well with for example Ceasar salad. Cilantro and chilies are widely used in Tex-Mex cooking and this recipe puts those flavours in a more modern (and healthy) setting.
A traditional Mexican favourite, chimichanga is simply a burrito made with a flour tortilla which is folded then chilled to allow the edges to seal. The burrito is then fried until crisp - this one has a fruit filling and a sweet cinnamon custard to serve with.
Here's chocolate cake with a difference! This isn't a dare - jalapenos work absolutely beautifully with chocolate... And it's not as far fetched as you might think as Mayas used chili with cocoa thousands of years ago. (The amount of baking soda/powder has been changed to 2 based on the reviews.)
You don't get much more traditional Finnish food than pea soup on every Thurday followed by an oven pancake with strawberry jam. The tradition stems from times when Friday was a Catholic fast day so on Thursdays you needed to eat something that would keep you going for an extra day.
This is raw fish, marinated in spices. For me this would be served especially at Christmas, but it's so nice there's no reason why not to eat it any time. Traditionally you do this with a whole salmon, but that's not always practical!
This is originally a Swedish recipe, but it has been a Finnish favourite for a long time. It's unsure who Jansson was - some say it was a pastor and this dish was his only temptation - but suffice to say that it's quite delicious. Traditional recipe has julienned potatoes, but if this seems like too much work you can thinly slice them too.
