I know I said that I was going to write about my hot sauce / spice rack at the end of my last blog but when have I ever really done what I said I was going to do ? So with that out of the way, I wanted to introduce you to a little friend of mine that I found out in the Swampgarden last… MORE

Chiles en nogada is a traditional Mexican dish served only around this time of year, during the peak of the walnut and pomegranate seasons. It consists of a green poblano pepper stuffed with ground meat (usually a mixture of pork and beef) and fruits, topped with a creamy walnut sauce and… MORE

After combing through hundreds of recipes here in Mexico, it has become clear what some of the basic and ubiquitous seasoning ingredients are in Mexican cuisine. In the US I find myself using salt, pepper, olive oil, lemon juice, and basil as my go-to seasoning ingredients. Black pepper is… MORE

I have never been 100% comfortable with the though of consuming other living beings. Although my diet is far from vegetarian, the second I start to think of where my food comes from, I get grossed out (after all, ignorance is bliss, right?). I cook mostly vegetarian dishes because I can't… MORE

Crema

Updated: Aug. 2, 2012 9:51 pm
More common than sour cream in Mexico is crema. In many ways it is extremely similar; they have the same texture, color, and packaging, but they taste very differently. I really am not a fan of sour cream, but crema I could eat straight out of the tub with a spoon. Although the product… MORE

I was recently asked to describe my kitchen here in Mexico. It is hard for me to visualize a 'typical' Mexican kitchen, seeing as I feel like there is much more variability in the architecture depending on your geographic location in the country and your socioeconomic status, than there is in… MORE

If you ask me what food I would choose to eat for the rest of my life if I could only eat one, without hesitation I would say AVOCADO! I think that I would even be happy about being forced to only eat avocados; I just love them that much. Rumor has it that it avocados actually supply fairly… MORE

Salsa
