Shrimp, Cheese, and Mango Tapas

Shrimp,-cheese-and-mango-tapas-04

When one gets together with friends, it’s always a good idea to have something nice to snack on, because there is nothing more pleasant than having good conversation while eating delicious food. Now imagine how great this would be if we do all that, plus watch this year’s big football game too! That is how this recipe came to be. It’s very easy to make and it is quite abundant, which makes it a perfect choice for parties with many guests. You have the option of serving the salsa in a large bowl with the tortillas chips on the side or you can have ready-made, individual portions by placing a small amount of the salsa over each tortilla chip.

I know what you’re thinking, now that the New Year is here, it’s time to take a step back and start eating healthier. While that is definitely true, whom are we kidding? Come game day, our diets are going out the window and let the feast begin. That’s why in Mexican homes like mine, we tend to leave the diets for after El Dia del la Candelaria, which is celebrated on February 2.

Holiday Cooking with Family

The holidays are always such a celebratory time of the year. We get to have festive gatherings with our family and loved ones. I have a big extended family, and it is so much fun for us all to get together and catch up on each other’s lives. Of course, there is a lot of cooking and congregating in the kitchen that happens; these are the really special moments.

Chorizo Tinga Tostadas

My first thought after Thanksgiving is always, “Las Posadas are coming!” If you’re not familiar with Las Posadas in Mexico, they are traditional celebrations starting each December 16th and continuing each day through December 24th. For me, they are sublimely beautiful. For nine consecutive days, families, friends and neighbors get together each night to celebrate and prepare for Christmas. These colorful nights may vary from family to family and region to region, but they generally include instrumental music, songs, prayers, candy, fruit, ponche or atole, piñatas (yes, piñatas!

Mexi-Style Fondue

Posadas Navideñas is a great time for family bonding and celebration. What better way to get the family together than by hosting your very own posada? If you are looking for great finger foods to impress your guests might I recommend some fondue forks? Here is a Mexi-twist to traditional fondue. It’s just as flavorful, but has a style all its own!

Queso Fresco Potato Tacos Dorados

For Las Posadas I always offer Mexican favorites, like tamales, sopes, pozole, ponche and atole, but this time I want to add Queso Fresco Potato Tacos Dorados to the menu. I’d like to serve them garnished with shredded lettuce, crema mexicana, and a side of creamy spicy tomatillo guacamole. These Queso Fresco Potato Tacos Dorados are made with creamy mashed potatoes, Cacique Queso Fresco and Crema Mexicana.

Apple Pecan Christmas Salad with Guava Yogurt Smoothie

One of the best holiday dishes to take advantage of the fruit in season is an apple pecan Christmas salad. Traditionally sweetened with condensed milk, I decided to cut some of that sugar and replace it with honey and a creamy Cacique Guava Flavored Yogurt Smoothie. The addition of a hint of guava makes this dish ten times better than the traditional version.

Crema Brûlée

Crème brulee is a sweet custard made mainly with cream, eggs and sugar. I decided to replace the whipping cream with Cacique Crema Mexicana and create a delicate dessert as a perfect ending to a holiday feast this year. All it takes are a few ingredients. If you don’t have access to a kitchen torch, don’t fret.
