Tamal or Tamale Pie?

Tamal or Tamale Pie?

I was struggling with the proper way to name this dish since “tamale” isn’t a word in Spanish. However, this dish is nothing like tamales, so I guess “tamale” is appropriate since both are are not authentically Mexican :). Anyway, when I told my Mexican […]

¡FELIZ DÍA DE LOS REYES! Have you ever heard of a Rosca de Reyes? In Mexico, many other Central and Southern American countries, Europe, and some parts of the U.S. (in Catholic-prevalent parts of the world), they celebrate el Día de los Reyes on the […]

Pan de muertos and GREAT NEWS!

Pan de muertos and GREAT NEWS!

This post is long overdue. I made this bread for my “stepdaughters” for El Día de los Muertos around the beginning of November. I got the recipe from What’s Cooking, which is full of authentic Mexican recipes and excellent photography. This bread took a while […]

Mexican Feast Part 6: Fajitas de pollo/Chicken Fajitas

Fajitas de pollo. YUM! I honestly thought the steak fajitas were going to be better than these, but I was proven wrong. Usually, no matter how much I season chicken, I still think beef tastes better. This time, however, the chicken was perfect, and I […]
