Warm Mexican Cinnamon Fritters

Similar to donuts, these Mexican fritters promise sweetness and deliciousness in every bite. You can roll them in cinnamon sugar while they are hot or consider pairing them with fruit jam or dipping them in melted chocolate. They would also be good with maple syrup drizzled over the top. These Mexican fritters are simple to make and they need to be fried in oil, so they only take a few minutes to cook. That is great news if you are looking for dessert in a hurry or if you want to rustle up a quick and easy warm snack to please everyone in the family.

This decadent dessert could even be served after your enchiladas, Mexican spicy fish, or whatever main dish you are offering. Why not serve them with ice cream or vanilla-spiked whipped cream? You could drizzle some melted chocolate or chocolate syrup over them, then add the ice cream or whipped cream. To complete the decadent experience, add some almond slivers for a garnish. Oh – and serve a little glass of Mexican Kahlua to the grownups on the side! These smell every bit as incredible as freshly fried donuts and we promise you they will disappear faster than you can even imagine because they taste so good.

Because these are best served warm, you will want to cook them after everyone has finished their main dish and while they are still at the table. If you are making these for Cinco de Mayo or another holiday, encourage people to sit at the table, enjoy another glass of wine, and keep sniffing the air because very soon they are going to be able to smell the most wonderful aroma! Then you can come back in just a few minutes with this incredible treat for everyone to enjoy. Choose these cinnamon fritters if you want the tastiest Mexican dessert. Continue reading

Unusual Vanilla Profiteroles with Raspberries

Think of Mexican dessert recipes and what comes to mind – flan perhaps or chocolate mousse? This recipe is more unusual, making use of choux pastry profiteroles, along with vanilla ice cream, fresh raspberries, and some attractive garnishes. Mexican bakeries are really popular and you can find all kinds of tasty baked goods in there, which is where we got the inspiration for this recipe. The pastries are turned into profiteroles, then filled with vanilla ice cream and topped with a homemade raspberry coulis, for an attractive, tasty and well-balanced dessert.

Regardless of your main dish, these profiteroles are sure to make an enticing dessert. They bring together the flavor of vanilla, a typical Mexican ingredient, with fresh baking, something else that is prized in Mexico, along with a fresh raspberry topping. If you cannot get fresh raspberries, you could substitute frozen ones, as long as you make sure they completely thawed and patted dry before use, or you might want to take inspiration from the Mexican way of cooking, choosing whatever is fresh and looking good at the local market. What about peaches or apricots?

That is actually true about appetizers, snacks and entrées, not only desserts. A typical Mexican cook will purchase whatever locally grown produce looks and smells good, choosing locally grown fresh ingredients over ones that have flown thousands of miles. This of course ensures optimum freshness. Once they have their fresh produce (meat, fish, seafood, fruit and vegetables, along with any baked goods they wish to have) they will put together a menu. For example, say the market is selling juicy fresh strawberries. That might mean a Mexican strawberry flan is on tonight’s menu. Continue reading

If you are having Mexican food for dinner but something without tortillas, consider this as your dessert, to contrast and help fill your belly.

The sweetness of the tortilla strips contrasts beautifully with the acid flavor of the lime sauce. This is a quick and easy recipe to make. The tortilla strips are fried in a couple of minutes and then it is time to serve the dessert. If you want to make it go even further, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the mix, to complement the sweetness of the tortilla strips and contrast with the lime flavor. Continue reading
