Happy Weekend guys! I hope everyone is safe. So, what you all have been doing these days? Bored of regular dishes, right? If you are looking for fancy recipes, try one of these awesome mexican recipes to make at home.
A quick sneak pick into Mexican Cuisine.
From yellow corn and bright green limes to subtly sweet avocados, Mexican cuisine is home to some of the most diverse and delicious ingredients out there. Whether you’re a taco lover or an enchilada enthusiast, there are so many fantastic ways to enjoy traditional Mexican cuisine.
Sometimes it’s sweet, sometimes it’s spicy, sometimes it’s a mix of both! But always, it’s tasty and sure to hit the spot. The most popular Mexican ingredients are beans, rice, avocado and limes. They’re utilized in nearly every dish, from hearty enchilada casseroles to creamy drinks like horchata.
You can literally choose any ingredient for the mexican recipes that goes well. My favorites are corn, beans, tomatoes, and ofcourse cheese. I cook these ingredients first, and it really is a matter of taste. You could skip if you don’t want to.
Quesedillas: (30 minutes)
These quesadillas are packed with veggies and some beans for protein. I make them with whole-grain tortillas for some nutritional bonus points and add enough cheese to make sure they’re both enticing and delicious.
*Traditionally in Mexico quesadillas are made with corn tortillas, not wheat flour tortillas, and a melty white cheese.
3 whole-grain flour tortilla (about 8″ diameter)
1 1/2 cup freshly grated cheese.
3/4 cup cooked black beans or pinto beans, rinsed and drained.
3 tablespoon chopped bell pepper.
3 tablespoon tomatoes.
3 tablespoon chopped onions.
1/4 cup corn kennels.
1/2 cup mayonise.
1/4 tea spoon crushed black pepper.
salt according to taste
3 teaspoon avocado oil, melted butter or extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
1. Heat a medium pan. Saute all the veggies (of your choice) in 1 tbsp olive oil for 10 mins. Add mayonise, salt and crushed black pepper.
2. Now take a grill pan and place it over medium heat. Warm your tortilla for about 30 seconds, flipping halfway. Flip once more, then sprinkle one-half of the tortilla with about half of the cheese. Cover the cheese evenly with the fillings prepared.
3. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the fillings, and fold over the empty side of the tortilla to enclose the fillings. Quickly brush the top of the quesadilla with a light coating of oil, then carefully flip it with a spatula.
4. Let the quesadilla cook until golden and crispy on the bottom, about 1 to 2 minutes, reducing the heat if necessary to prevent burning the tortilla. Brush the top with a light coating of oil, then flip it and cook until the second side is golden and crispy.
5. Immediately remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the quesadilla to a cutting board. Let it cool for a minute, then use a cutter to slice it into 3 pieces. Serve promptly, with any sauces or garnishes that you’d like.
However you make them, these little pockets of dough are absolutely delicious!
