Adobo Lime Ropa Vieja


Ropa Vieja is one of the national dishes of Cuba. It literally translates to “old clothes” because it resembles a heap of colorful cloths. This dish started as a shepherd's meal in the Middle Ages. It tastes even better the second day, so make a large batch ensuring you have enough for letfovers. There are many different ways to make this fabulous meal, this is my favorite. Simple and very tasty! Definitely a family favorite!


Adobo Lime is hand blended from fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary. It is a wonderful addition to chicken, beef, pork, fish and veggies. Adobo or Adobar (which means marinade or sauce) traditionally is cooking raw food in a sauce to enhance its flavor, then served over rice. It has been used by the Spanish/Portuguese/South American cultures for centuries and is now main stream all over the world. Adobo can be used in a sauce or as a rub.


I served this with Baked Mexican Rice.


An ice cold Tecate beer is perfect with this dish.

Empanadas


I had some pie dough that I bought on sale and decided to make Empanadas.  Quick and easy, great for the kids to help.  The pie dough makes these really flaky and delicious.


I used Mexican Blast to make this dish.  This is such a versatile spice blend, great in just about anything Southwestern.  Mexican Blast is hand blended with Mexican oregano, black pepper, ancho powder, pasilla powder, chipotle powder, cumin, granulated garlic, garlic flakes, granulated onion, onion flakes and coriander.


You can serve these with Mexican Rice and a Black Bean & Corn Salad.


An ice cold Corona light pairs very well with this meal.

Matzoh Crack - Salted Chocolate Caramel Matzoh


This a such a fun and easy recipe to make.  Dark chocolate and caramel with Fleur de Sel, some people call this Matzo Crack!  You can make with Matzoh crackers for Passover or you can use unsalted or salted saltine crackers.  The easy caramel sauce is baked into the cracker, ridiculously good!  Salty, crunchy and sweet, very addictive!!!  If you are so inclined, you can add nuts to the chocolate with the salt before it cools...


Fleur de Sel is an artisanal sea salt comprised of young crystals that form naturally on the surface of salt evaporation ponds. They are hand harvested under specific weather conditions by traditional salt farmers. True Fleur de Sel comes from the Guérande region of France. Like fine wine regions, different areas within Guérande produce salts with their own unique flavors and aroma profiles
