Tacos al PastorTacos al Pastor Everyone has heard of tacos but what are tacos al pastor? This delicious and typical Central Mexican dish is an adaptation of shawarma spit-grilled pork, and the recipe can be traced back to Lebanese settlers in Mexico. Similar to Greek gyros and Turkish doner kebab, ‘al pastor’ refers to meat cooked in this style, although pork is typically used in Mexico while lamb is the meat of choice in Greece and Turkey. Pineapple, chilies and spices are used to flavor the pork, sometimes achiote too, then the cooked meat is served on tortillas with onions, cilantro and maybe fresh pineapple.
Recipes for Mexican PozolePozole Hominy and pork in a spicy, savory broth is what the classic pozole recipe is all about, and this is a warming and delicious dish boasting plenty of meaty, satisfying appeal. The pork, hominy and onion are the main flavors in this flavorful south of the border soup, while garlic, cumin, cayenne, oregano, and jalapeños support the meaty flavors, adding even more Mexican appeal and typical flavors to this wonderful soup. There is nothing else quite like pozole, so if you want to rustle up a Mexican treat for the family, take a look at this recipe and see just how simple it is to put together.
Enchiladas VerdesEnchiladas Verdes A tomatillo-based salsa verde replaces the tomato-based sauce usually found in enchiladas, and the result is a lighter, more aromatic flavor. These enchiladas are filled with chicken and homemade salsa verde, and the onions, garlic and chilies add plenty of typical Mexican appeal. These are great served with queso fresco and cilantro, and you can add any Mexican side dish you like, such as Spanish rice for example. The serrano peppers in these make them really spicy, so if you are in the mood for a classic Mexican dish which will tantalize the taste buds, this is the one.
