lentil stew
While I was researching Mexican cuisine I came across a traditional dish called Sopa de Lentejas, which is basically a lentil soup/stew with Mexican seasoning. I noticed that in some recipes chorizo was used. I decided to make my own simplified version of this traditional stew using chorizo and Supremo's Crema Supremo sour cream to top the dish. This sour cream has a distinctive tang to it that just says Mexican food! — Diane Balch, Simple Living and EatingFor more recipes like this one visit Simple Living and Eating.

While the sight of this recipe alone caught our attention, it wasn’t until we tried it that we realized how truly special this burger creation is. A green chile relish is the perfect topping to a flavorful burger patty topped with a slice of cheese. We agree with authors Andy Husbands, Chris Hart, and Andrew Pyenson of Wicked Good Burgers when they recommend not to eat one every day, though.  Click here to see 50 Best Burger Recipes

Raw Chicken
"I feel that canned or packaged 'broth' is not an acceptable substitute for homemade stock… ," wrote Joe Gracey in offering this recipe, "because those products tend to be full of MSG, salt, [and] false and even bizarre ingredients that do more harm than good to the final result… I… make constant use of French-style classic stocks in my cooking, but this one has fewer ingredients and a more straightforward flavor. A classic French stock would add celery, carrot, parsley, thyme, and bay, and the meat would be roasted first to brown it. This Mexican-style broth uses fewer ingredients and leaves more room on the palette to color the final dish. When you taste this broth, it will seem very delicate, almost a non-flavor, but it marries with the other ingredients to create a glorious end result."

Frozen Mexican Chocolate Mousse
Don't be fooled — even though it's frozen, this dessert packs some heat. Serve à la mode to mellow out the fire. If you can't find Mexican chocolate (such as Ibarra), adding equal parts cinnamon and cayenne pepper to regular baking chocolate is a good substitute. Click here to see more D.I.Y. Frozen Desserts.

Mexican meatballs
A few weeks ago I received a call from Evan and Sarah, on speaker phone, to discuss ideas for what to do for Evan’s birthday. I was honored that they enlisted my help, though they ended up at my cell phone via Cara, who reminded them that no one likes theme parties more than this girl. The general idea was to have a potluck at their apartment, but Sarah and Evan couldn’t settle on a cuisine to inspire the food. We discussed Italian, since Mulberry Street and its cannolis were only a block away. But being an old hat at the art of birthday piñata-stuffing and subsequent smashing, I knew Mexican would be more fun. Evan and Sarah provided a stellar spread of pulled pork tacos and corn salsa. I provided a less authentic dish, these Mexican meatballs. The recipe is simple: a basic spin on the traditional Little Italy variety, but using cilantro instead of parsley, chili powder instead of red pepper flakes, and lots and lots of gooey Monterey Jack cheese instead of the standard Parmesan. Not a bad meatball to bring to a pretty great potluck party. — Phoebe You can serve these over rice as a main course or with toothpicks as a festive finger food.
