Mexican

Mexican Cuisine is known for its tortillas, rice, and beans. But things can get a little more complicated than that…in a good way! Chicken Cilantro Enchiladas, Burrito Mojados, Fish Tacos, Beef Quesadillas, and Vegetarian Pozole are just a few of my favorite Mexican recipes. Most recipes in this category can be garnished with sour cream, avocado slices, guacamole, rice, re-fried beans, and lime wedges. I love the steak tacos are Portumex in Richmond, California. The steak is so succulent and the crispy tortilla is the perfect crunch to add everything together. Check out the Mexican Food Recipes we have here on Cook Eat Delicious!

Vegan Tacos

Share

Over the past couple of years I have realized that you can really “veganize” any recipe and be left with a delicious meal. When you minus the meat and dairy and eggs, vegetables really have a chance to stand on their own and they taste great. Don’t get me wrong, I do still eat meat and dairy and eggs, I am just learning to appreciate food without them. Case and point: Tacos “veganized”. No meat, no cheese, no sour cream. Rather sauteed veggies, thick black beans, cream avocado…yum! This easy recipe was a cinch to cook for lunch with simple ingredients that were in the fridge and pantry. I highly recommend it.

Delicious Rating: I used the mini corn tortillas and ended up eating four, they were addicting and full of flavor! My DH said they were great and would have been better with some sort of rice inside too. If you want a heartier taco, I recommend adding rice, but without rice I felt they are light and filling. I had onions and squash so that is what I sauteed up. Feel free to use bell peppers, asparagus, carrots, even broccoli. Keep it simple so that you can really taste each vegetable  without muddling them together and let me know how they turned out!

Vegan Blue Corn Tortilla Tacos

Share

Living in Mexico you would think that one would eat plenty of tacos but I hardly ever ate tacos out. You never know how clean a place is or how old are their ingredients. Plus, most tacos are soaked in grease and meat so I am already turned off. But when I am in the mood for some Ameri-Mex, DH and I love to make tacos or burritos. It is an easy recipe that is sure to always turn out great. This time we bought some fresh blue corn tortillas to make some tacos on a Saturday afternoon.

Delicious Rating: Muy rico mi amigos! This is actually my DH’s recipe but I helped! I love the spices he uses for the vegetable saute, they taste delicious. Because they are vegan there is no meat, cheese, or sour cream. You won’t be missing them either! I have found that those “extras” really mask the real ingredients and flavors. Once the “extras” aren’t there you can more appreciate the food you are eating and really taste the depth of flavor. And the avocado is super great as a creamy replacement! The blue corn tortillas taste great but I will have to go with flour next time.

The Best Salsa in the World

Share

The Best Salsa in the World. Yes, that is a high title to live up to but I seriously believe that this Salsa stands. Oh man, it is delicious! Delicious and addicting. We couldn’t stop eating it, it is that good.

I modeled this salsa after one of my favorite salsas: Chevy’s Salsa! I used to go to Chevy’s just for their salsa and chips. I think the waiters would hate me. The key to this recipe isn’t some fake liquid smoke, it is actually grilling the tomatoes and peppers on a charcoal grill…My mouth is literally watering typing this up.

Delicious Rating: A charcoal grill is the only option for this recipe. Gas will not give it the real smoky taste and liquid smoke is so out of the question. After the grilling it is a super easy recipe, blend it all up and serve! It tastes better (if that is possible) the next day after all the flavors have come together and melded perfectly. I am going to the store right now to buy some more ingredients!

Cilantro Chicken Enchiladas

Share

Meaty, spicy, cheesy, gooey…yummy! Enchiladas are one of the easiest and most delicious Mexican dishes to make. And there is so much variety in what you can do to the dish. Casseroles are great for families, entertaining, or for an easy and quick dinner. If you aren’t a fan of cilantro you can certainly leave it out. I don’t mind cilantro but too much is too much. So you can certainly adjust it to taste. Serve these enchiladas with rice & beans to make a complete dish.

Delicious Rating: Any home cook can whip these up. They are extremely delicious! However, I am a sucker for anything with cheese so maybe I am being a bit bias here. All the flavors seem to meld perfectly. The use of green tomatillos adds such a depth in a sauce that the usual red tomato does not give. You can use an already cooked rotisserie chicken to save time as well. I highly recommend this easy recipe and will make them again myself. Please let me know what you think of them or if you made any improvements or adjustments.
