Family Flavors: Essential Ingredients in the Latin Kitchen

When the worst part of winter has passed but spring has not just arrived, everything becomes a little easier and is the perfect time to simplify and organize. A good starting point is in the pantry or kitchen cabinets, where things accumulate so fast that it never reaches the time to use all the things we have; Or worse, we buy new ingredients and there they remain untouched. Cleaning and getting rid of things means you have to start with the basics. These are some of the basic and most versatile products of Latin cuisine and some tips to keep them:

Spices

Although not all Latin American recipes are spicy, the truth is that we almost always use many spices. We do not make much differentiation between sweet spices and salads, so that oregano, cumin and bay leaf can be combined with jamaica pepper, cinnamon or clove. For a well-made mole we could use all the spices within our reach. Since we never know what we are going to need, what we can do is buy the spices that are not grounded so that they last longer, and grind them as we need them.

Dry wine

Most professionals say that we should not cook with a wine that we would not take. You’re probably right, but it’s always good to have a cheap cooking wine on hand, just in case. We all grew up in houses where there was always some kind of dry wine bottle, whether red, white or gold, as they were used for many recipes that still remind us of home.

Oil

Spanish olive oil is always present in sofrito but it is also a good idea to have some vegetable oil of canola or sunflower, to fry and brown the meals. Stir achiote in oil to give a touch of color and flavor to stews or rice.

Dry beans

Whether chickpeas or pigeon peas, black or red, dry beans are the heart of Latin cuisine so we always have them in the pantry. But remember that over time they get harder and take longer to cook. It is not worth spending money on large quantities of beans if you are not going to cook them for a long time as they will take too long to soften. To last longer, store the beans in tightly sealed plastic containers and do not forget to note the expiration date.

Dried chilies

Whether the chiles pasillas, trees or wide, the complexity that contribute chiles to any recipe is unparalleled. Most recipes only require the use of 1 or 2 chilies at a time, so be sure to buy chilies that have a strong, even color, and do not have mold. Dried chilies can be stored in covered containers in a cool, dry place.

Never miss these ingredients in the kitchen to make the best Latino dishes!

What is Mexican Barbecue?

When I hear the word barbecue I think of a hot tortilla stuffed with tender meat, with onion, cilantro, sauce and lemon. This is the image I have from my childhood. Barbecue is one of those delicious Mexican foods that are usually served at family parties, although many Mexicans like to have tacos every day.

So you can imagine what I thought when on one occasion some friends in the United States asked me if barbecue was the same as BBQ (which, if you live in the USA you know it means roast or grilled meat), to which I quickly replied , Not at all! Unfortunately many people have this impression, so today I want to tell you a little about this delicious meat that literally melts in your mouth. The Mexican barbecue is a stewed meat in such a way that when cooked it is very tender, and it is very easily cut. The traditional thing is to make it of lamb or goat, but also you can find it of res.

The process for making it varies depending on the particular interest and quantity you are going to cook, whether large for a party, or taqueria, or less for a family meal at home.

A business dedicated to cooking barbecue for wholesale, for example, may have underground ovens covered with maguey leaves where the meat is deposited and allowed to cook. In Mexico you can see that these ovens are also very close to the trails (or butchers) which ensures that the meat is as fresh as possible.

If instead you want to barbecue in your house, you will only need the meat and the condiments of your preference and a steamer. The meat, as Gustavo tells me a butcher and knows everything about barbecue and carnitas (another delicious traditional meat of Mexico), is placed directly in the grill base of the steamer, which will protect the meat from the water that is Used for cooking.

In addition to the difference in meat, there are varieties depending on the condiments that are used to cook it, the most popular are the natural (cooked only with salt), enchilada , with herbs of smell and with chipotle.

Traditionally in Mexico it is served in two forms, watery or dry. When it is watery, it is served in the consomme or juice of the meat, a touch of sauce and lemon finishes the delicious and comforting saucer. Dry is when well served as stew accompanied by rice, beans, guacamole and tortillas. Or in tacos.

As I told you at the beginning, many have been the parties of my family in which large tables are full of casseroles with rice, beans, barbecue and condiments for tacos like onion, cilantro and a variety of sauces of all colors.

Prepare a taco, add a little lemon and salt and you’ll be trying a Mexican dish you’ll never forget.

And have you not yet tried it? try it right now 🙂

Having African Mango as part of your Balanced Diet regime for reducing fat and fatigue

On a cloudy day, all my friends first planned to go to the playground. Then we had a thought that if it would rain, then we cannot complete our game. Therefore, everybody decided to go to a shopping mall, which was on the highway. We chose to enter a new shopping mall that was opened a day before. To our surprise, we saw many new varieties of fruits and vegetables, which we have not seen before. Every one of us was curious to know about each of the fruits and its benefits. Numerous fruits were imported all around the world. Countries like India, Australia, Spain, and Kenya had the maximum fruits those were exported to our country. Breeds of lemon, pineapple, papaya, and banana were highly attractive. Mainly African mangoes that have been imported from Cameroon and other African countries received a warm welcome by the people of the state. There was a representative in the shopping mall who explained us about the various benefits and importance of eating fruits. When he started explaining about the African mangoes, I was eagerly hearing to him. It was great to hear that African mangoes helps to reduce the excess fat around the belly, reduces the mental fatigue, improves the immunity power, reduces the weight, controls diabetes and cholesterol. It was the first time I was hearing about a fruit that has so much benefits and importance.

The Health Benefits of Cheese at Your Mexican Grill

Cheese is a food item that is much delicious and it can make you feel much delightful. The Mexican grill at your locality can be visited to find the employees grating piles of cotija cheese that is much nutritious, delicious and fresh. The employees grate the cheese for making it much delicious that anyone can feel it really a great taste. Cotija cheese is a kind of cheese that is the greatest kind among the types of cheese available.

Finding Foods Good for Gout

I am pretty sad to say that I have developed a pretty bad case of gout. It is pretty unfortunate, because it hurts more than anything I have ever been through before, and it makes so many simple tasks extremely difficult. It is no way to live, and I think that I am going to try to change my diet to get rid of the problem. I want to know is milk, yogurt and cheese good or bad for gout? I have heard some conflicting information on the subject.

I was talking with one of my friends about it, and he said that it was probably bad for gout, because dairy products have been known to increase inflammation. However, I guess while that might be generally true, it is not the case for gout. That is because it increases the excretion of uric acid, which is the culprit behind gout. I am excited to learn this, because I really like dairy products, and it should not be that difficult for me to increase my consumption of them in order to help with the battle against gout.

But that is not the only change I want to make. I also want to identify foods that help to contribute to gout and eliminate them from my diet. I really do not know which foods cause gout. However, I really hope that it won’t be any foods that I really like. Though, considering I have gout, I would guess that there is something I eat fairly frequently which is bad for you and is known to cause gout. I am going to figure out what it is though, because I do not want to have this gout problem get even worse on me. I am fear of the debilitation that it can cause people.
