Menu Musings of a Modern American Mom: Skinny Mexican Pizza
Flatbread, made with potato flour. Recipe from King Arthur Flour. Easy, fast...and if you're the one who made it, you know what's in it, and you can control the portion size. Besides, if you make it at home, there's less chance that you cave and go ahead and get the loaded nachos with extra processed cheese food sauce. You really can make a gordita(tm) with grilled chicken and fire-roasted vegetables. Click the clicky for the recipe.
Mexican Chocoflan (Pastel Imposible -- Impossible Cake) Recipe - A chocolate cake baked with flan on the top. When done, the flan is now on the bottom, but when the cake is inverted, it is back on top! A great favorite at Mexican fiestas, this cake is delicious and beautiful.
Churros y chocolate. "The traditional hot chocolate served in Spain doesn't contain eggs. It is a thick chocolate cream usually thickened with a bit of cornstarch or made with a special kind of chocolate that contains thickeners." Recipe for both included here, though she refers to the chocolate as "Spiced Chocolate Bisque." About right.... :-)
