CHILE RELLENOS

If I had a “signature dish,” this would be it. I’ve been making it for years, before I started cooking regularly, and it is always a crowd favorite: goat cheese filled poblano peppers, in a soufflĂ© batter, and drenched in either a fresh salsa verde or nogada sauce with pomegranate seeds.

SOPES

Sopes are fried masa and potato boats that are delightfully crunchy, and can be topped with any variety of delightful flavors.

EMPANADAS

It’s been a while since I’ve deep fried something. Discovering how easy and delicious these veggie empanadas are is not going to be a positive influence on my diet.

TAMALES

Making homemade tamales is a daunting task. It is time consuming, but is not terribly difficult and you have the freedom of making whatever kind of filling you like!
