Mexican Style Roast Chicken

We were in the mood for a roasted chicken but I wanted to change the routine. So I seasoned this oven-roasted chicken with salsa verde, cilantro, limes and cerveza, making the chicken perfect for tacos, enchiladas or any other Mexican-style meal.

Chicken Pozole Blanco (Mexican Soup)

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Pozole (also commonly spelled posole) is a traditional Mexican soup made with hominy and meat, such as chicken or pork. This version which comes from my world-traveling friend uses chicken breasts and comes together quickly, but the longer you let it simmer the more the flavors will develop. But in my opinion, it is all of the garnishes that "make" the soup, adding color, texture and a myriad of flavors to each spoonful.

Avocado Salad

I used my cilantro-lime vinaigrette taco salad recipe (adapted from a Cooking Light recipe) to make a refreshing avocado salad. I kept it simple with avocado, corn, black beans and bell peppers but you can adjust the salad fixings to your tastes and what you have on hand.

Kale Wraps

These kale wraps are one of the most interesting (and good!) things I've had and they are definitely a conversation piece for a party. As you eat the kale wrap, you get a burst of each of the flavors: ginger, lime, toasted coconut, peanuts, red onion and tamarind sauce. I didn't even notice that I was eating kale.

Carne Asada Tacos

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.

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.

Turn your leftover taco meat or fajita chicken into a brand new meal by making a light and refreshing salad with cilantro-lime vinaigrette.

Salsa Verde

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.
