Poblano Pepper Strips with Cream / Rajas de Chile Poblano con Crema

poblano1a
When I cook this “Rajas de Chile Poblano”, I can’t stop eating them. That’s why I try to make it less often even if It is so yummy. Just few ingredients and the cream do wonders shooting the spiciness of the Poblano pepper. Even before I start cooking my mouth starts watering, and then the thought that potatoes will be added (because my son will also eat them), makes it even merrier. Imagine potatoes and cream together in a taco, Delicious!

Xnipec Salsa



The name “Xni-pec “comes from the Maya words “ni” (nose), and “peek” (dog), referring to a dog’s wet nose, since this sauce can be so hot that your nose will sweat like a dog!

My first experience with Habanero peppers was a funny and memorable one. Habaneros weren’t that common where I lived in the north, so when I moved to work in the southern states, I had no idea that this little pepper was so fiery hot and was also very important in the Yucatan gastronomy.

So one weekend, my sponsor family was having a barbecue and I was in charge of making the salsa to go alone with the grilled meats. I was so happy to be able to help and be involved in the cooking that I wanted to do an excellent job with the presentation on the salsa.

Smoked Pork Chops in Chipotle Sauce

Smoked pork chops can be cooked in many several recipes, not just pan fried. This recipe is a very popular way to cook smoked pork chops in México, because almost everyone has at home all the ingredients in their kitchen: tomatoes, onion, garlic and canned chipotles. You can either cook the pork chops whole or chopped like the way I present them here.

Masa balls and black bean soup corn dumplings

My mom used to make this soup for us growing up, and I remember checking my siblings’ bowls, just to make sure they didn't get more of the masa balls in the soup (Mexican corn dumplings) than I did. I enjoyed having them so much in my soup that I always asked for more. The masa balls are also known as "Chochoyotes, Jarochos in the State of Veracruz and Joroches in the Yucatan Peninsula. It is an easy soup with few ingredients that can be prepared in minutes. This is a nourishing, delicious and comforting meal than can be enjoyed all year long.
