    ELOTES : Simmered fresh corn with epazote, chiles, butter, and lime

    Mexican farmers cultivate more than three hundred distinct varieties of corn, so it’s no surprise that corn forms an integral part of the everyday Mexican diet. Fresh corn is a popular street treat, served from pushcarts that are often just cauldrons of boiling water on wheels. The earthy-sweet flavor of the corn shines through the […]

    BEANS WITH BEEF, CHIPOTLES, AND EPAZOTE : Frijoles Charros

    The charro (cowboy) lifestyle is alive and well in the beautiful mountains of northern Mexico. Here cooking often revolves around a big pot and a wood-fired cook box, where frijoles cook slowly overnight while the herd dozes under the stars.

    CHILEATOLE : Geen Chile Soup With Corn

    Healthful and sustaining atoles, soups and drinks made from corn, are an ancient Mexican tradition.

    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 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 […]
