Best Mexican Food Recipes from Scratch

Your family will love these authentic recipes from Mexico.  They are simply delicious.


For the following Mexican food recipe, I use Mexican cheese and if you do not have access to it, please substitute Mexican-style cheese, Monterrey Jack or Co-Jack cheese.

CHEESE QUESADILLAS

10 large homemade flour tortillas
2-1/2 cups queso fresco or blanco Mexican cheese
3 ounce can green chilies (optional)
butter

Sprinkle 1/4 cup of cheese on half of the tortilla and then 1 tablespoon of green chilies. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top so the chilies do not fall out.

Fold it in half and butter the tortilla. Place in a non-stick skillet and brown on both sides like you would a grilled cheese. Make sure the cheese is melted.  Cut in half and serve with fresh salsa.







My Little Helpers

I must confess.  I do get a little help every now and then when I cook and bake.  To reward yourself for making homemade tortillas, you want them to be perfect.  You will never buy store-bought again.


Tortilla Warmer

This tortilla warmer is wonderful! It keeps them warm for up to an hour. Your tortillas do not get cold and stiffen up when you are eating.









Tortilla Press





The cast iron tortilla press (above) is my favorite. Perfect size and thickness every time.








Cast Iron Griddle


...and last (but not least), is this little handy cast-iron round griddle. It makes perfect tortillas. You may also use it for roasted vegetables, eggs and sandwiches.

These traditional Mexican recipes product authentic Mexican fare.

Following are wonderful traditional Mexican recipes. My fresh authentic guacamole recipe is awesome, but I want to give you a few pointers so it turns out great every time.

Secret #1 - Buy high quality Haas avocados. When choosing your avocados choose ones that are blemish free and have a slight give when squeezed lightly.

Secret #2 - ONLY USE FRESH INGREDIENTS. Seriously, do not put in canned tomatoes, fake lemon juice, dried cilantro or garlic powder; it ruins it. Some use lemon and some use lime in their guacamole, just use what you like - but make sure it's fresh.
