Mexican Food

Seeing as I’ve been cooking a bit of Mexican at home, taking some classes & eating a whole lot I thought I’d share a few recipes with you!

Ceviche:

  • 2 limes
  • 5 tomatoes
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 jalepeno (remove seeds)
  • 1 kilo white fish chopped into small squares.
  • 3 cloves of garlic sliced then dropped into 3/4 olive oil & cooked to a crisp. Remove garlic & set oil aside to cool.
  • 3 oranges sliced in round sections

Boil a pot of water with some sea salt & fresh oregano. Drop the fish in for one minute. Drain & cool.
Chop the ingredients finely into a bowl then pour the garlic oil & lime juice & mix together. Season with salt. Scoop a pile onto the middle of a plate with totopos (plain doritos) surrounding & a slice of orange twisted on top. Helps with your breath after eating the fish.
(Normally the fish is served raw but this way you kill all parasites)

Flautas:

Flautas a winner with kids!

  • Chicken thigh or breast boiled in a broth. When cooled pull it apart.
  • Tortillas (wheat or corn)
  • Plain or sour cream
  • Tomatoes (chopped)

Lay out your tortillas, place some chicken on the top half & roll tightly keep in place with toothpick. Heat oil & deep fry till golden. To serve place 2 on a plate & add some tomato, avo, lettuce, cream & hot sauce.

 Chilaquiles: (pronounced Chee-lah-KEE-less)

Migs loves these for brekkie with a fried egg on top.

  •  7 tomatoes (boiled whole for 2 min)
  • 2 chili Serrano
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 litre chicken broth
  • 350g tomato paste
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Cream
  • Onion thinly sliced
  • 2 bags totopos

Blend first 3 ingredients together. Then bring to a boil with tomato paste. Add broth & bring to a boil again. Season with salt. Turn off the stove & add 2 packets of totopos (plain doritos) & let sit for 2 min. To serve gently scoop so you dont break the chips, pour fresh cream & sliced onion on top sprinkle with parma.
(If you want the chips to stay a little more crunchy just put them in your bowl & pour the sauce on top)

Vegetarian Ceviche:

This one is delish & great if you don't like fish

  • 4 Avocados
  • Small bunch of cilatro (only the leaves)
  • 5 Tomotoes
  • Half a white, brown or red onion
  • 1 Yellow Capsicum
  • 1 lime or lemon
  • 1 cucumber
  • Olive oil & sea salt

Dice ingredients finely & mix together carefully. Add avo last so it doesn’t mush. Serve as shown in the pic with totopos (plain doritos)

 Salsa Verde:

  • 8 Green Tomatoes
  • 1/2 a small white or brown onion
  • Sernano chilis (use as little or many depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Small handful Cilantro

Boil first 4 ingredients for 5 minutes. Drain & cool. Blend all together with cumin & cilantro. Season as desired. (Can also be made without the cilantro & cumin. That’s just the way I like it.)

Whole Fried Fish:

Best. Fish. Ever

Best. Fish. Ever

  • 2 Whole snapper (cleaned & scaled)
  • One Spring Onion
  • 1 Lime
  • Plain Flour
  • Salt
  • Olive Oil

Rinse the fish & pat dry. Make 3 cuts on each side. Season inside & out with salt. Rub lime juice & spring onion. Let sit for 10 min. Coat the fish in flour then heat roughly an inch of oil or more depending on size. Drop fish in carefully & turn heat down to medium. Fry 5 min on each side.
Then eat it with whatever you like!
