I love polenta! It is so creamy and rich! Serve it with some steamed veggies or a crisp salad and you have a very satisfying meal. This is the recipe that my mother uses. Make sure that you do stir it constantly, as to avoid lumps.
A Southwestern take on a traditional French meal that dates as far back as the 16th Century! Heads up: This quiche has more of a custard texture than a cheesy egg texture. If you want to "beef it up," I recommend adding another egg and maybe a little shredded swiss.
This salad is not for the weak-hearted! Very spicy! You can adjust to make hotter or milder however, by rationing the amounts of chili powder, cayenne, and tabasco you add. This salad is delicious with another recipe I posted for Southwest Seafood Wraps. I am going nutty with the Southwestern-style recipes today, so if you want more, refer to My Recipes!
This is a very unusual southwestern-style salad. If you like jicama, cilantro, and corn however, you will enjoy this! I recommend you try it with another recipe I posted for Halibut and Sweet Corn Tamales!
Really easy and very good! The flavor of the whipping cream, vanilla and condensed milk make for great easy ice cream filling! My kids raved about it, my husband too! It only took me about 5 minutes to prepare, then I stuck it in the freezer. Can't get any simpler than that! Cook time is freezing time.
This is a good recipe that I came up with when trying to find a good use for my leftover steak. If you are using raw meat, however, I would recommend that you simmer it in water a while (maybe 30 minutes or so) before starting the soup , for this will make the beef more tender (if you do this be sure to skip browning the beef with the veggies, or do it by itself before you boil it).
These are a great, simple little appetizer to serve to friends on a casual visit. Also very versatile, you can add pretty much anything that you would like! (black olives, green chiles, green onion, etc.)
