Though I know that horchata is typically served in the heat of summer as a cool, refreshing beverage, I also think of this cinnamon-spiced rice drink in autumn. When you make it at home you can use less sugar, sweetening it to taste.
We liked the carne asada tacos that we made a while ago so much that we decided to make them with chicken. The marinade is very similar to that which we used on the steak. It is such a simple dinner to pull together but the flavors are so satisfying.
Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with these festive enchiladas that look like the Mexican flag. Salsa verde, sour cream and red salsa (or red enchilada sauce) represent the three colors of the Mexican flag. They are quick and easy to make and each member of your family can eat their own enchilada flag.
Carne asada literally means “roasted meat” in Spanish and is typically a flank steak or skirt steak that is thinly cut and roasted or grilled. These carne asada tacos were the closest that we have come to replicating the tacos from one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. The corn tortillas were tender and pliable and the steak was tender and juicy.
I recently hosted a cooking class for kids in honor of Cinco de Mayo. As part of the educational aspect of the class, I made flag sugar cookies and let the chefs decorate them like the Mexican flag.
The following guacamole recipe is my family’s favorite version but we change up the ingredients depending on what we have on hand. We really like the combination of the salsa verde with the chopped tomatoes but if we don’t have salsa verde, we use any other salsa.
