200 Easy Mexican Recipes Review & Giveaway Ends 3/18/14 at 7 PM EST

Mexican food is very popular these days.  It has an alluring blend of flavors and aromas that are combined with a relatively simple and colorful presentation style.  It's no wonder that Mexican food is enjoying an increasing popularity.  Inspired by authentic dishes, these foolproof recipes bring the flavors of Mexico to your home.   These recipes are quick to make, easy to serve and affordable.  The ingredients needed to cook these dishes can be found in your local grocery store. 


Inside 200 Easy Mexican Recipes you will find everything from beverages to desserts.  The recipes are sure to delight everyone who tries them.  Some examples of recipes in the book are:

• Pomegranate Margarita
• Shrimp Ceviche
• Corn & Chile Guacamole
• Green Chile & Chicken Tacos
• Machaca Burrito
• Red Chile Enchiladas
• Chicken Mole
• Tres Leches Cake

In addition to all the fabulous and exciting dishes she has created, Kelley Cleary Coffeen offers a wonderfully interesting account of the traditions and culture surrounding Mexican cuisine.  She also includes a comprehensive glossary depicting the flavors of Mexico, an ingredient list and a list of handy tools and equipment.

Kelley Cleary Coffeen is a cookbook author, food consultant, media personality and restaurateur who enjoys the flavors of the American Southwest and Mexico.  Her creativity in the kitchen has resulted in a flourishing culinary career.

I have enjoyed several of these recipes over the past few months.  I like to joke that I am part Mexican because Mexican food is my favorite food.  I truly love the Tres Leches Cake.  It's a staple in our household.

One recipe to try is the Huevos Rancheros + Roasted Tomato Salsa
Makes 4 servings
Preheat oven to 150°F
Ovenproof serving plates


Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp. oil, divided
  • 8  6-inch (15 cm) corn tortillas
  • 2 cups Roasted Tomato Salsa (see below)
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Directions

  1. Place serving plates in preheated oven to warm.
  2. In a large skillet over high heat, add 2 tbsp. of the oil and heat for 1 minute.  Using tongs, carefully dip each tortilla into the oil until tortilla bubbles and is heated through, about 1 minute.  Transfer to paper towels to drain. Place 2 tortillas slightly overlapping each other on each warmed plate. Return to oven.
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat salsa until bubbly, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. In another skillet, add remaining 1 tbsp. of oil and scramble or fry eggs separately, as desired. Place each egg on top of tortillas on each plate and smother with salsa. Sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven and bake until cheese is slightly melted, 3 to 4 minutes.
