Mexican Independence Day Beverages

Mexican Independence Day is celebrated on September 16. No, it is not on May 5th. Really, Google it if you don’t believe me. I’ll wait. If Mother Nature is blessing you with an extended summer (read scorching hot and humid) like she is us here in Southern California, you might want something cool and refreshing …

Easy Tortilla Soup

I found this recipe for Tortilla Soup in Ma’am’s original recipe archives and it looked so simple and satisfying I knew I had to make it for dinner and get it on the blog for Fall. Yes, I am still fantasizing about cool weather. Two extra bonuses are: -you probably already have the ingredients in the house …

Posole – Mexican Pork and Hominy Stew

I am dreaming of cool Fall weather these days to help me get through what I hope is the last hot spell of the year. Curling up under a blanket, listening to the gentle rain and enjoying a nice bowl of soup. Like this Posole. Unlike Abuela’s version, (not my Abuela actually, but someone else’s Mexican …

What do I have against tomatoes in salsa? Not a thing. I love a good tomato salsa, particularly Pico de Gallo in the summer time when tomatoes are at their peak! But, I also like other kinds of salsa. So, in honor of the pseudo-Mexican holiday next week, I thought it would be fun to …

TVP Tacos

When I was typing up the Meatless Main Course suggestions a few weeks ago, I suddenly remembered one of my favorites from years ago. Eons ago, Amway used to offer an incredible meatless taco mix that only needed water added, in addition to your favorite taco toppings. TVP and the spice cabinet to the rescue. You might …

Hominy Tortillas

Continuing our Corn theme this week here’s another tortilla recipe from The Well-Filled Tortilla Cookbook, Hominy Tortillas. You can make basic corn tortillas using the recipe on the package of masa harina, but if you want to add a special texture to them, try adding some hominy. They taste like fresh from corn pulp tortillas. Use them with …

Homemade Flour Tortillas

My parents bought me The Well Filled Tortilla Cookbook about 20 years ago. It is a wonderful little cookbook. In all those years I have made two recipes from it: Flour Tortillas and Hominy Tortillas. Boy, is that embarrassing when I look at all of the other fantastic recipes in the book. I highly recommend it if you …

Enchiladas, Margaritas and Micheladas

I feel the same about Cinco de Mayo as I do about St Patrick’s Day. Both have become perverted by the alcohol industry in America (particularly the beer industry). What started as a celebration of ethnic pride has in many cases just turned into an excuse to go out and drink heavily. Ugh! So, am I selling out …

Just like Mama used to make.

How many of us have vivid memories of certain dishes our mothers (aunts, grandmothers, etc.) made while we were growing up?  And how many of us assume they will always be around and able to make those special dishes for us when we want them?  If that is the case, and you still have the …

Oh Brother!

Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet.  ~Vietnamese Proverb I had planned on writing about my brother this week and to add his Rosemary Flan recipe long before “Mommy’s little baaaaby” whined to Ma’am that I hadn’t put anything up about him on the site even though he is a professional chef.  …
