Guacamole. Recipe

Some time ago, I wrote an article on Directo al Paladar México, sharing my thoughts on a recipe published in The New York Times - a pea-infused guacamole that, in my view, stripped away the traditional essence of one of our most iconic dishes: guacamole. In Mexico, we love to enjoy this dish as a snack, a side dish, or simply smeared over corn tortilla tacos, savoring every bite for the pure joy it brings. Mexican guacamole, like many of our culinary treasures, comes with a story that traces back to Quetzalcóatl, who is said to have bestowed the guacamole recipe upon the Toltecs. From there, it spread across Mesoamerica. In every region, every household, and even within the minds of each cook, there's a [...]

Tres leches cake (milk cake) recipe

This year, I've been asked multiple times to share the recipe for the tres leches cake that we all love so much in Mexico. It's one of those homemade cakes that we truly relish, and for celebrating a birthday, it's often among the top choices. Interestingly, it happens to be my husband's favorite cake, and his birthday was this month. So, I indulged his preference and baked it. We enjoyed it so much! and it disappeared very quickly. Of course, I took advantage of the opportunity to snap some photos, ensure the recipe's quality, and share it with all of you. Imprimir Pastel de tres leches.

Mexican Shredded Beef Salad

The warm season has already arrived throughout the country, and even though the weather has played a trick on us with some untimely rains and hailstorms, not characteristic of this time, we can't deny that we've stowed away our coats and moved away from piping hot dishes in favor of salads, refreshing dishes, and cold desserts. Hence, I felt the urge to prepare this mexican shredded beef salad, a recipe that showcases the significant influence of Spanish cuisine on Mexican cooking. Let's remember that beef was introduced to Mexico during the era of the conquistadors. The Spanish-originated beef "salpicón," made with chopped beef and bacon, dressed with oil and vinegar, is somewhat akin to the mexican shredded beef salad we know in our country. Our [...]

Five Food Delivery Apps Worth Checking Out

The arrival of Covi-19 vaccines in 2021 brought a glimmer of hope to Americans who have been confined in their homes for a long time. However, the logistics required to vaccinate the entire population are quite challenging, which means residents in Florida could spend even more time indoors.  Being confined to your house stops you from doing lots of activities.

Chicken stir fry (chop suey). Recipe

The chop suey or chicken stir fry is a recipe of Chinese-American origin very easy to cook, since in reality, it is only necessary to chop the meat and the vegetables, and these are cooked quickly in a wok, which aims to keep intact the flavor and aroma of the food. If you do not have a wok, you can do it in a pan (the deeper, the better), just make sure that it is very hot when you put the ingredients, and temperature is constant. What is important to say about the use of the wok is that it must be preheated for at least one minute, so that when the ingredients are added, it is very hot. You will notice that the recipe [...]
