Stay Warm This Winter with Some Sweet & Spicy Tips
Ideas to Revamp and reset your Meal routine
With the holiday season behind us and an exciting new year ahead, what is better than getting back into a routine? Some people may find patterns to be a bit of a bore, and if that is the case, we accept the challenge of changing your mind.
A new year provides us with a clean slate, and who doesn’t love a chance at a fresh start? Reset your routine or mindset by starting with something small. If you spent a lot of money over the holidays and are looking to cut back on unnecessary spending, cooking at home is the most accessible place to start.
Cooking at home does not have to be boring or routine. Casa Mendosa® wants to help you get creative with your meal choices by adding sweetness or heat. Whether or not you are a fan of either, there is something for everyone, but if you like a bit of a kick to warm you up this winter, these recipes are a must-try.
Shrimp tacos are the perfect quick and easy dish when craving a little Mexican inspired food /flavour. The wonderful thing about Mexican food is that with spice, there is always a cooling factor.
In Mexican cuisine, when you serve something spicy, it is generally paired with a fat (guacamole or cheese) to help alleviate the heat. If you want to try something a little different, try a spicy shrimp taco recipe with a delicious garlic cilantro lime sauce.
Enchiladas encompass all the deliciousness of authentic Mexican cuisine in one bite.
This recipe for Spicy Chorizo Sausage Enchiladas uses a mix of sautéed chorizo sausage (for the spice), bell peppers and onions. Roll the chorizo filling into a Casa Mendosa® tortilla, throw into a casserole-baking dish, top with cheese and bake until the cheese is melted and lightly browned.
Serve with a bit of guacamole or salsa and enjoy. This dish is so easy to make, and you will be overly impressed by the delicious combination of flavours.
A perfectly crispy, crunchy and cheesy wrap is impossible to turn down or say no to. This recipe is for you if you are in a cooking slump and want to heat things in the kitchen. Use a mix of chicken, jalapenos, banana peppers, spicy chipotle sauce and habanero cheese. Say goodbye to boring wraps because this is so delicious you will not want to eat anything else.
