    POLLO EN SALSA: Chicken In Tomato Jalapeno Salsa

    This dish is traditionally made with a whole chicken, which is cut into pieces and cooked slowly until tender. This results in a wonderful flavor, of course, but you can substitute boneless chicken if you prefer, which will also shorten the cooking time. The chicken finishes by simmering in a fresh tomato sauce, made medium-spicy […]

I once had this bright green soup at the Xochimilco market south of Mexico City, where it was paired with a warm cake of fresh ground corn toasted on an earthenware comal; it was like tasting Mexico as it was […]

    SOPA DE ELOTE Y CALABAZA : Fresh Corn And Zucchini Soup

    This easy soup tastes of the very essence of corn. Try to find sweet yellow corn at your market. It contains more starch than white corn, which naturally thickens the soup, and the long simmering in the slow cooker brings out the corn’s natural sweetness. Simmering the scraped cobs with the soup gives it even […]

    SOPA DE FIDEOS : Tomato Soup With Capellini, Avocado, And Chicharron

    For many, sopa de fideos is the comforting taste of home. It is served everywhere, every day, in tiny loncherías, tony men’s clubs, and traditional restaurants as well as at mama’s kitchen table. I had this version at the venerable Fonda el Refugio in Mexico City’s Zona Rosa, where a crew of formidable female cooks […]

    SOPA DE LENTEJAS Y LONGANIZA : Lentil Soup With Longaniza Sausage

    Mexican carnicerías (butchers) sell long, looping skeins of longaniza, a mild pork sausage flavored with garlic, red chile, cumin, and oregano (not to be confused with the Spanish or Filipino sausages of the same name, which are very different). Longaniza is widely used in Mexican cooking, though it is less well known in the United […]
