Cumin-seasoned rice simmered in tomato sauce and broth makes a tasty side.

Mexican Blackened Corn

Rating: 5 stars 81
This charred corn dish is perfect as a side, as a topping on a taco, mixed into a salad, with quinoa, or even served cold. I discovered a similar dish at the Amigo Room inside The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, CA. This was a staple of my diet in California, and since I've moved to New York, I set out to perfect their recipe and put my spin on it. This is my version; I hope you enjoy it!

Homemade Wonton Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 373
This is a recipe I have perfected on my own through the years. I am one who never measures, so take the measurements as a guide, not as law. This recipe is one that my family members beg me to make all the time! Enjoy!

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Looking for a refreshing salsa for a warm summer evening? This is our favorite. Serve with tortilla chips. This is also fantastic served on white fish. I often use a canned jalapeno instead of fresh.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Rating: 4.5 stars 3786
This will definitely be the biggest hit at the party! This is such an easy appetizer to make and it tastes just like the jalapeno poppers you wish you could make yourself! The hardest part of this recipe is not eating it all by yourself! Serve with sliced sourdough baguettes, tortilla chips or crackers.
