This is an quick, easy and awesome appetizer for fall or winter.
A Mexican style coleslaw that is great served with chips or as a condiment.
Premium chorizo sausage with tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella, stacked together. Place them in the middle of a small mixed leaf salad and drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil.
Crab and cheese blend together with a Mexican flair--the Crabadilla!
I originally made this recipe up to dip some bacon-wrapped shrimp in, but we soon found out that it was good on all kinds of chips and crackers also!
I have boiled, roasted and grilled more tomatoes, peppers and garlic trying to find the perfect salsa I get my favorite Mexican restaurant. While I came up with some pretty good salsas, this is finally it. The color and consistency tipped me off as to where I was going astray. And while I had to move away from the fresh tomatoes, it was worth it.
A brief and nice sauce for shrimp or VEGGIES!
Dillweed sour cream dip, what more can I say? Classic. It's great with vegetables, french fries, or anything dippable.
This is a basic garlic oil that can be used as a dipping sauce for bread, the oil half of an Italian vinaigrette, or as the base for sauteeing Mediterranean style. If you use it for the latter though, you may want to omit the herbs and add the extra virgin olive oil unless your pan is non-stick or you do not mind burned liitle flecks of oregano or parsley!
A grilling recipe that is easy to prepare, tasty as an appetizer or a side dish.
This is a tasty and healthy snack for a lazy afternoon, or a nice party sandwich cut up in halves as an hors d'oeuvre.
This unique, hot composed salad uses fried bacon and blood sausage with mozzarella and a tangy dill vinaigrette.
As the weather changes, I want a light meal, but I also want to feel like I ate something. This fits the bill.
My mother prepared this dish (along with another simple appetizer consisting of chilled cocktail shrimp stuck with festive toothpicks along side a dish of cocktail sauce) every Christmas as far back as I can remember. It is a creamy, savory blend of easy-to-find ingredients that showcases the rich flavor of the clams. Stay with the mentioned brands and you'll never be disappointed. Serve with Ruffles(R) Original potato chips.
Just like the bean dip you buy in the store but a lot less expensive. The heat can be easily controlled.
Simple Mexican-style cheese dip that can be used with tortilla chips as an appetizer or to fill tortillas to make a meal.
This recipe was developed to eat with our Spaghetti. It is a family recipe used for many generations.
Authentic arbol chile salsa. I like mine hot, but you can tone down the peppers if you wish.
Makes a thick spreadable paste similar to the Loma Linda Sandwich Spread that has been discontinued or Humus. I like it on home made bread with a dill pickle but it is good plain. It is also an excellent cracker spread. Seasonings are optional; you can try other nut butters if you're not into peanuts.
A nice flavorful Southwestern salsa that is great when served hot! If you want it with a little more kick use a hot picante or add some hot sauce or cayenne to the mix.
