A Healthy Day of the Dead Celebration
With the celebration of el Dia de los Muertos officially underway, we are ready to celebrate life with a little Latin flare. For Ingrid Hoffmann, host of the Univision’s Delicioso and author of Latin D'Lite: Delicious Latin Recipes with a Healthy Twist, this is not a new concept. But the talented chef is always eager to share her knowledge on Latin flavors and ideas- especially in honor of such a vibrant celebration. Check out some of the amazing dishes you can make at home in honor of this holiday!
Pozole is a hominy-based stew usually made with pork shoulder. Set bowls of shredded cabbage, avocado, radishes, chopped cilantro and lime wedges on the table so each person can flavor their Pozole as they wish. Keep plenty of tortillas and Mexican beer on hand!
“Suizas” means Swiss in Spanish – and it’s thought that when people from Switzerland immigrated to Mexico – they brought their love of dairy with them – explaining why so many Mexican dishes are heavy on the cheese. These enchiladas are a little lighter than normal – but they still pack a strong flavor punch.
Every celebration calls for something sweet – and this dessert is a real treat. It has a crunchie almost brownie-like outer layer, while the inside oozes with molten chocolate. With far fewer calories than a chocolate mouse - it’s definitely one of my favorites.
