Here’s an easy recipe for a soul-warming batch of Pozole Rojo! It’s one of the heartiest, most satisfying dishes in all of Mexican cuisine, and it comes with a flexibility that’s more than willing to accommodate your palate. I used pork for this batch, but the base flavor will work equally well with chicken or veggies. #pozole #recipe

I'm back on the Mole Train this week and testing out some dried chile combos! In particular, the Holy Trinity combo of Anchos, Mulatos, and Pasillas is a revelation for me and I'm super excited to build some Mole out of it. For reference, Mulatos are similar to Anchos but they ripen to a dark brown before being picked. This additional time on the vine gives them a big, bold flavor with hints of licorice and tobacco. And to my palate they don't have the fruity undertones that Anchos have.

These Authentic Flour Tortillas use only four ingredients: flour, salt, lard, water. And they are significantly better than store-bought tortillas! If the lard freaks you out then you can always use olive oil or bacon drippings in place of it -- I have separate recipes on the site for those versions. #flour #tortillas

I finally got around to experimenting with Masa Harina in cornbread and I'm glad I did! It seems to give it a bump in flavor and make it more "corny". I also used chipotles in adobo for some heat but you can consider that optional. #cornbread Mexican Cooking, Mexican Food Recipes, Healthy Eating Recipes, Cooking Recipes, My Favorite Food, Favorite Recipes, Good Food, Yummy Food, Party Food And Drinks

It’s definitely worth your time to get familiar with Guajillo chiles! They’re one of the most common dried chiles used in Mexican cuisine, but for some reason they aren’t as common in the States. Guajillos have slightly fruity undertones and overall they have a more laid back flavor, but don’t let that stop you from buying them. They can really enhance sauces and meat rubs, providing a flavor that you can’t get from any other chile.
