Reviewed Mexican Summer Salad

The toasted ingredients make this olive & tomato salad extraordinary! I left out the salt because the olives and cheese are already very salty and cut the olive oil in half. Excellent."

Another 5-star rating for one of Marcela's recipes! The cooking/cooling times made for perfectly moist insides but slightly crusty outsides. The banana taste was distinct rather than getting lost as happens in many recipes and the mexican chocolate was perfect - the irregular sized pieces made for delightful pockets of chocolate and its slightly "

I never knew that ketchup was the secret ingredient to the fabulous seafood cocktails I enjoy in Mexico! I added 1 chopped avocado because its always in ones I get in Mexico, I love avocado, and I the hot sauce I used was VERY hot so I thought I'd need an extra cooling ingredient. Adding that and the seafood that was available at my grocery stor"

Ridiculously easy! Seriously, I'm amazed out how flavorful and satisfying this dish is considering that the prep is so simple. I removed the shrimp tails before coating in the flour mix and am unsure why the recipe directed me to leave them on; I suspect that it is just a matter of personal preference."

This flavor combination is 5 star but I like a substantial taco so the jicama-wrapped orange slices and greens didn't appeal to me. Instead, I converted the recipe into a salad by mixing together the greens (my store was out of watercress so I substituted baby arugula), cranberries, and 1/2 of a jicama that I shredded in the food processor. I ma"

Reviewed Coconut Flan

I followed the recipe exactly & the result was the best flan I've ever made (also one of the biggest). Just buying caramel rather than making it was very efficient & a lot less messy.

Reviewed Beef Pozole

This was incredible! For the pa-gua sauce, I reconstituted the dried peppers by heating them in a frying pan until the skin changed color then put them in the water. I poured about 1/4 of the sauce into my pozole. Also, I substituted a roasted turkey drumstick for the beef shank. The result was a hearty & energizing stew with intense flavor!
