I've been wanting to share a Mexican tamales recipe for a very long time now, but only recently did I acquire the necessary gear (namely a tamale steamer). Well I finally got around to testing out one of my friend's great abuelita's recipe for tamales de dulce, and holy crap: it is good! You can find the recipe at that link above, but check them out:

Vegetarian Mexican Recipes

I've added a vegetarian Mexican recipes section to the site, so you can still find some delicious dishes from authentic Mexican cuisine to make at home if you don't eat meat. This first recipe is for delicious authentic Mexican red enchiladas that use spinach and cheese in place of the traditional meat these recipes normally use.

I know it's an unusual combination: vegetarianism and Mexican food, but the mixture does exist inside the Chilango nation, and I've been inundated with so many requests for these Mexican-vegetarian recipes over this past month that I simply can't ignore the demand any more! So I'm looking forward to bringing some vegetarian recipes to the authentic Mexican recipes blog and sharing them with you all. :)

I've been traveling around lately and haven't had much time to post new authentic Mexican recipes on the site, but that's changing as I've settled in to a new home for the next two months and I'm going to bringing you new recipes from the heart of this delicious Mexican cuisine much more frequently!

Mexican Tostada Recipe from Nayarit!

I came across a great Mexican tostada recipe in the Riviera Nayarit for tasty summer shrimp tostadas, here:


If you've never tried them, tostadas are sort of like tacos, only instead of using a tortilla to wrap around the contents of the taco, they use a hard, flat shell that you simply pile the ingredients on top of! They make for a great little afternoon snack or a quick dinner appetizer you can whip up, or even eat them as a meal if you make enough of them.

Check the recipe out because I think you'll really like it, and I'll speak to you again very soon!

Mexican Rice Recipe Site

It's not often that I cover Mexican rice recipes on my site. Perhaps it's because rice bores me more than perusing an Mexican art gallery run by a foreigner who's idea of Mexico is that it's a 24/7 fiesta with mariachis constantly playing in the background somewhere, with everyone dancing on the streets and partying and shaking maracas non-stop…


I see it all the time, and it bores me.  Thankfully, there's a great site here that covers a pile of different rice recipes from El Gran Tenochtitlan:  She's got a video that sort of introduces the site, here:

So if you're making Mexican food and you want a few variations of rice beyond the standard Mexican rice recipe to serve, take a look at her site. It's got some good recipes.

Speak soon,
