Lime-Cilantro Rice

Thursday, March 4, 2010


This lime-cilantro rice is easy to make and is the perfect combo with many meals, even outside Mexican-inspired meals. I like serving it with Teriyaki Flank Steak.

5-Layer Dip

This layered bean dip is always a crowd-pleaser at parties. At its most basic it is a 5-layer dip but it can easily become a 7-layer dip if you add multiple toppings with the cheese.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Saturday, February 20, 2010


Over the past couple of years we have made Tikka Masala many times in an effort to perfect it. It typically has heavy cream so our goal has been to create a lighter version while matching the restaurant creaminess and flavor. The last time we made this, our fifteen-month old son couldn't get enough of it!

You will know by how colorful this meal is that it is healthy. Introduce your kids to seafood by sneaking scallops and shrimp into kid-friendly tacos.

Salsa Verde

Sunday, January 10, 2010


We incorporate this salsa verde into many of our dishes. Outside of traditional Mexican food, it is also excellent for marinating chopped ham and sausage for breakfast dishes. Make it as spicy (or not spicy) as you would like by adjusting the peppers in the mix.

Naan Bread

Monday, January 4, 2010


Naan bread is traditionally baked in a clay oven called a tandoor. Most of us aren't lucky enough to have a tandoor in our home so this version of naan bread is baked on a BBQ or in a conventional oven. It is a fun family cooking project and learning experience. Leave it plain or top with cheese, garlic, onion or other desired ingredients. Serve it with curries, rice dishes or soups.
