7 Cinco de Mayo Recipes:
Ceviche differs from country to country. This ceviche is closest to the Mexican version which contains onions, tomatoes, and peppers. Onion, cilantro, and lime juice have also been added to create a spicy, tangy, and refreshing appetizer. Serve in an avocado for a fun presentation and with plenty of tostadas or chips!
Grilled sweet corn sprinkled with cayenne pepper, drizzled with chipotle-spiked sauce and topped with fresh cilantro … it’s one spicy bite! … Beware, this sauce is hot, hot, hot … so go lightly if you’re not ready for the heat!
These are a creative twist on tacos. Tortillas are filled with sweet, creamy roasted butternut squash, peppers, and black beans with crisp apple slices for an unexpected crunch. The chipotle-lime dressing kicks it up a notch with spicy adobo.
Seitan, wheat gluten, is often used instead of meat in Asian, vegetarian, Buddhist, and macrobiotic cuisines. Expanded into this Mexican taco dish is a wonderful alternative.
All of the flavor of tamales with a minimal amount of the work.
Give your pickles an extra kick with jalapeños, oregano, and black peppercorns! These taste great on top of tacos, inside burritos, on a salad, or even just by themselves.
Empanadas are a stuffed bread or pastry baked or fried in many countries in Latin Europe, Latin America, the Southwestern United States, and parts of Southeast Asia. These empanadas are with fruit making it a dessert instead of an entre.
