In the Kitchen with Lilliana

Hola everyone!!


Thank you for all the well wishes, prayers and good vibes we received during our little storm today. Thank goodness it did not amount to a hill of frijoles. We got a lot of much needed rain, and that was it.



I gave mi madre a rest today in the kitchen and I prepared some classic Mexican dishes. I thought I would share them with you.


First off, I made ceviche as the appetizer which is seafood salad that has been "cooked" in lime juice only.




Then the next course was some Barbacoa served in tacos. YUM!



My favorite is the chilles rellenos! I like to use anaheim peppers. They are stuffed with Mexican cheese, dipped in an egg white batter and fried. Very tasty.




The next course is a Tex-Mex favorite: chimichangas. They are deep fried tortillas with any type of filling you can imagine. Momma likes beef and cheese and daddy likes shredded chicken. So I made both!




Don't forget about desert - I made some churros, which are deep fried pastries topped with cinnamon and sugar. Mack can eat like a billion of these mamas.



I am thinking about opening a Tex-Mex restaurant soon. Right next to my Psychic reading parlor!




Buenas Noches everyone.

You won't need menus for your restaurant, Lilly - you'll know what everyone wants before they do.

(Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week.)

Hola Lilliana Rosalita... I really love that name! Amazing dishes you cooked up. You'd do very well opening up a Mexican restaurant. Can you give me a psychic reading some time?
