Creamy Chipotle Dip

Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own.Creamy Chipotle Dip recipe

When having a Mexican dinner with their family, or when having friends over for a party, many people make guacamole and serve them with a handful of tortilla chips. While that’s already delicious by itself, let me share with you a great guacamole companion, this Creamy chipotle dip.  This super easy-to-make dip is bursting with flavors; it’s tangy, mildly spicy, and, as the name says, very creamy.

In Mexico, like in many other countries around the world, we love snacks and appetizers. Although this is not a traditional Mexican recipe, dips are popular for casual gatherings or for when you’re watching the soccer game. The creamy and cheesy dips are the most favored, and we love to mix in ingredients that are common to us; in this case, a little chipotle and cilantro work wonders! Of course, people add their own spin to their dip depending on their local ingredients.

Creamy Black Bean Soup

Creamy black bean soup- Crema de frijol mexicana

I’m pretty sure that this happens to a lot of young people when they’re just married: when you love to cook and know a couple of different recipes really well, but realize that cooking every single day for your spouse is a different story. That happened to me, at least, when I had just gotten married. I knew how to cook several dishes, even the complex Mole Poblano, but after a few weeks into the married life, I realized that my cooking repertoire wasn’t that big!

This realization is confirmed when you hear them say “Are we having this again?” That was when I started buying cookbooks to widen my cooking experience, and this black bean recipe is my own version of a recipe from the first cooking book I got as a newly wed, back in the 80’s.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of the American Egg Board . The opinions and text are all mine.

Scrambled eggs with salsa verde mexican recipe

If you’ve ever visited Mexico, you know that the local restaurants offer a large array of egg dishes for breakfast. Eggs are one of the most commonly used types of protein in Mexican breakfast, and the combinations are endless; some regions of the country even have their own distinct egg dish. Besides the well known “Huevos Rancheros”, we also have the Yucatan “Motul-Style Egg/Huevos Motuleños”, the Veracruz “Dropped Eggs/Huevos Tirados”, and in the northern states, we have “Dried Meat with Eggs/Machaca con Huevos”, just to mention a few.

Pambazo: Chorizo-Potato Sandwich

Pambazos recipe - mexican food

In Mexico City, a “Pambazo” is a sandwich made of a particular type of bread stuffed with potatoes and chorizo and then drenched in a guajillo sauce, served with lettuce, cheese, and cream. There are other sandwiches with the same name in other parts of the country, like in the State of Veracruz, where the sandwich is filled with refried beans, ham, and even chorizo and pickled chipotle peppers. This particular bread, also called “pambazo”, is very similar to a Kaiser roll, but dusted with flour and without the seeds.
