Recipes for Cinco de Mayo
If you like smoked or grilled food, chances are you like cornbread. I've made cornbread from mixes, but it usually comes out a little sweet for my liking. I make this version that has no flour in it, just cornmeal for a base. It has a nice coarse texture, but is still tender & makes a great side dish for ribs, BBQ chicken, pulled pork, chili & most Mexican dishes. You can trust me... everyone knows Canadians make the best cornbread!
Serves: 8 to 12
The question is... what can't you use this on? It's so great as a topping/garnish on all Mexican Dishes like Tacos, Chili, Burritos, Huevos Rancheros & so on. I use it on my Loaded Mexican Hot Dogs along with mustard (see recipe in the Sandwiches category). I also love it on scrambled eggs, it gives them a scrumptious creaminess... I'm sure you'll love it!
Get out of the doldrums with the same old boring hot dog & move on to this spicy, tasty version!
Carne Adobado is basically chile marinated shredded pork. Mostly used as a filling for tacos, burritos, enchiladas & quesadillas, but you could also serve a pile of it on a plate with couple of side dishes like Refried Beans & so on. It's hard to say how many servings you'll get from this recipe, it all depends how you serve it. I like to make this & then freeze it in portioned containers & it'll last quite a long time... so it's well worth the effort!
Just about everyone who has created their own chili recipe, fusses over it, tweaks it over many years & keeps it a secret. Mine is no different... I started creating this recipe in the mid 1970's & have changed it many times over the years. Now I'm going to share my Signature Chili Recipe with you... enjoy!
Serves: Approximately 10 to 12
Everyone who's ever tasted these has commented that these are the best refried beans they ever tasted, so hopefully you'll love them too!
Yield: 3 - 1 cup servings
One of my favorite snack recipes, easy to make, so delish & addictive! Double, triple or quadruple the recipe to feed a crowd. If you want to serve it family style & keep it warm on the table, use an electric fondue pot, if you have one & set it to the lowest heat setting.
Serves 3 to 4

A hearty & delicious sandwich that you'll be craving once you've tasted it! A welcome addition to your repertoire for #MeatlessMonday & absolutely fantastic when served with my chilled Refreshing Mango Salsa Salad or Corn & Black Bean Salad (find both recipes in the Salads & Dressings category).
Without a doubt, this is the easiest recipe I've ever created. Bright & colorful, it's especially delicious served with your favorite Mexican dish. I've also served it with steak, chicken & even ribs. For a terrific lunch or light dinner for #MeatlessMonday, serve it on top of a bed of organic baby greens like a kale/spinach blend or whatever baby greens you like.
This travels well, so it's a great dish to bring to a party, picnic or pot luck. Simply double, triple or quadruple the ingredients & you're all set!
Serves: 4 to 6
