A fantastic way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo! This was a last minute creation using ingredients found in my fridge. Serve with marinara sauce (add chopped cilantro to the marinara for a bit of Mexican flavor). If you can't find Mexican cheese, try a mix of Monterey Jack and Cheddar.
Authentic Mexican Chile Rellenos
Tasty chile rellenos made with Anaheim chiles filled with Mexican cheese.
Mexican Veggies with Queso
Delicious combo of fresh veggies, with spices and queso. You can add other veggies to this such as carrots and corn. Top with sour cream and salsa if desired.
Tacos De Matamoros
A staple dish in Matamoros, Mexico, this simple recipe starts with ground beef mixed with spices that you already have in your kitchen and turns into a great family dinner! Perfect to 'make ahead' on busy days. Serve with warm corn or flour tortillas, Spanish rice, and beans-a-la-charra.
Authentic Chile con Queso
This is a true chile con queso that can be eaten with tostadas or in a warm corn tortilla. This is not like the Americanized version of chili con queso that we have become used to that is a cheese dip, which I also love. This is the way my grandma used to make it. The great thing about this recipe is you can play with it and adjust it to your personal taste. If you like it cheesier add more cheese. You can't mess this up unless you burn it.
Simple Southwestern Breakfast Pizza
This breakfast pizza is done in under 30 minutes and would be perfect for an addition to brunch.
Honey-Lime Chicken Enchiladas
This has become one of the most-requested dishes I make. When I bring it to a function, it's one of the first dishes to go, and everybody raves over how good it is.
Miguelina's Poblanos and Cheese
These are a delicious side dish (but a rich one), if you don't mind a mildly chiloso (hot) pepper - less than jalapenos. The mellow cheese is the perfect accompaniment! Double or triple the recipe, as you please. These are not volcanic, but not for people who can't eat nachos with at least some jalapenos on them. Use Mexican cheeses if they are available in your area.
