Braised Chicken and Tomato Easy recipe

This chicken in tomato sauce is a simple but flavorful dish. It doesn’t need that many spices or herbs to render one of the most memorable stews you will ever taste! I love to take advantage of the summer tomatoes because I know they will produce a rich sauce, one that’s perfect to soak up with some crusty bread. I hope you prepare it, and if you don’t like to add the jalapeño pepper, just substitute with plain green bell peppers, I’m sure you kids will enjoy it as well as the grown ups in the family.

Shredded beef for tacos and more...

shredded beef for tacos recipe

Some of the most popular dishes in Mexico, called “antojitos”, have shredded beef or chicken as a main ingredient (there are a few that use pork). Therefore, I find it always good to make a big batch of it and have it ready for those nights when you’re in a hurry and want to make your favorite Mexican dinner at home. Once cooked and shredded, you can store it for a couple of days in the fridge or even for some weeks in the freezer.

Dishes like fried tacos (flautas), sopes, tostadas, tamales, and even stews and our famous beef salpicon salad use shredded beef. Here are the basic steps in which we prepare and season the meat at home. You can use any leftovers for other uses like morning tacos, or as a gordita filling.  Enjoy!

Champola recipe receta

This is an easy frozen treat that you can make at home in a matter of minutes, and you probably already have all the ingredients needed in your kitchen. Instead of buying a frozen snack at the store, make it at home, you won’t believe how easy it is to make this recipe, and the best part is, both kids and adults will love it!

Champolas are common in the southern states of Campeche, Yucatan, and Quintana Roo. Even the State of Veracruz in the Gulf of Mexico has its own version. According to Chef David Sterling from the Mexican Cooking School “Los Dos” in Yucatan, they are also popular throughout the Caribbean, from Cuba to Puerto Rico. The Guanabana fruit is the classic flavor for a Champola, but nowadays you can find many other fruit flavors.

A popular dish of the many so called “Antojitos” in Mexico City, these “tostadas de pata” are not for everyone, but if you are of the adventurous kind, then they might be for you. It is truly a delicacy that can be found in specialty restaurants in central Mexico. Cow’s feet are cooked first then pickled with vinegar and Mexican oregano.

Here I explain the process to prepare them at home, for those people that live outside Mexico, like me, and that has a craving for this type of tostada, can prepare at home. In Central Mexico, people just go to the store and buy the cow’s feet already pickled ready to eat.
