This Mexican dessert cheese cake recipe combines a crisp crust with a rich and creamy filling and a tangy fresh orange gelatin topping. Lime is used to add a sharp flavor which goes beautifully with the condensed milk rich filling. The result is a perfectly balanced dessert boasting plenty of incredible flavor. Whatever you are having for the appetizer and entrée, this south of the border cheesecake is sure to be a perfect fit when the time for dessert arrives.
Cheesecake is not the first dish that comes to mind when most people think about Mexican dessert recipes but this cheesecake combines Mexican flavors perfectly – the sharp with the creamy and the sweet with the sour. If you are looking for unique and slightly different dessert recipes, this Mexican dessert cheesecake is delicious. If you want to add a touch of chocolate, consider some grated Mexican chocolate over the top, added just before serving. Something else you might want to do is add some fresh orange before pouring over the gelatin.
Making this is very simple. The first thing to do is prepare the crust. You could always use a readymade Graham cracker crust to save time, but preparing a crust using Graham cracker crumbs and butter takes 5 minutes or less, so you might as well make your own. The filling is a blend of lime, egg, cream cheese, and milk, and that can be poured directly into the crust, before baking them together. About half an hour in the oven is enough time to set the crust and the filling. Then you can work on the topping while the cheesecake is cooling down. Continue reading

Did you know that many salads offer all the nutrients and vitamins typically found in a ‘full course meal’, yet many do not eat salad as a meal? It is true – this salad is rich in beta-carotene, iron, niacin and plenty of others that will keep the body going strong all day long. So why then do people not eat salads as a meal more often? Well, this is because many do not feel full without having meat! A salad does not have to comprise a sad pile of leaves with not much else on the plate, nor does it have to be served cold, and nor does it have to be meat-free!
For many, meat is what makes a well-balanced meal, and without some kind of meat they feel they are lacking, and therefore are convinced their bodies they are still hungry when in fact they are not. So, if you or someone in your family thinks this way, why not try the following recipe? This taco salad is loaded with lettuce, tomato, onion, hamburger meat, chili beans, cheese, guacamole, and salsa, and it is served in a delicious edible bowl! Continue reading

If you like to make Mexican flan recipes, the delicious combined flavors of natural vanilla and unmistakable mango make this one of the best ones to create. This is quite an easy recipe to follow and it is quite quick to make as well. The mango pudding is made in separate ramekins so you can tip them out to serve. Mango puddings go well with vanilla ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream or simply served by themselves, decorated with a sprig of fresh mint. How you choose to serve the finished mango puddings is up to you, of course.
This is a light and refreshing dessert which is perfect after a spicy meal or nice as a snack whenever you fancy one. Although you can get canned or frozen mango, we suggest you use fresh mango here. It just offers a richer, fresher flavor, and Mexican cooks always choose fresh produce wherever possible because they love the fresher taste it promises. Use pure vanilla extract and not vanilla essence which is just alcohol and chemicals, for the same reason. Whenever you use fresh, good quality ingredients, you can be sure of a great result.
You need very few ingredients to make this dish actually – milk, sugar, eggs, mango, and vanilla are the only items you will need, along with some water, 6 matching ramekins to make the flans in, and perhaps some fresh mint or another attractive garnish. Use cilantro if you wish, since that is a herb popular in Mexican cuisine. It is only for decoration anyway, not for eating. Else consider whipped cream or ice cream as your garnish. Continue reading
