Crispy treats for your tooth and taste buds, Nacho Chips have a characteristic texture that is quite different from other chips, perhaps due to the combination of maize flour and plain flour. While a sprinkling of carom seeds and oregano imparts enough aroma and flavour for most purposes, you can add a little chilli powder if you like your chips spicy. Enjoy crunchy Nacho Chips with your favourite dip. Nacho Chips can also be used to add a crunch to soups and salads like Mexican Nacho Soup and Mexican Salad. We have also used crushed Nacho Chips in our recipe for Burrito Bowl, a satiating one-dish meal . Enjoy how to make Nacho Chips recipe with detailed step by step photos and video below.

A flavourful and healthy avocado-based dip, Guacamole originated in Mexico but has now become popular all over the world not just as a dip but also as a salad dressing and sandwich topping. Ensure you take ripe avocados to avoid a raw taste that displeases the taste buds! Once you have made the right choice of fruit, there is nothing more to this dip that chopping and mixing in varied ingredients like tomatoes, onions, garlic, etc. A dollop of fresh cream enhances the texture and mouth feel, while the lemon juice imparts a refreshing tang and also prevents discoloration of the avocado pulp. You can also chop or slice avocado and use in recipes like Tostadas, Veg Mexican Tostadas Recipes , Avocado, Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta Salad and Avocado Salad .

Burritos are almost synonymous with Mexican cuisine. Yummy tortillas packed with rice, re-fried beans, salsa, sour cream and cheese, this dish has everything packed into it. It is self-contained in terms of flavour with a bit of tang, spice and cheesiness, and is quite filling too. This makes it a true one-dish meal. We have showed you how to make everything from the guacamole to the salsa yourself. It might look like much but it actually very easy because no cooking is required. You just need to prepare the ingredients and mix them up in the right proportions. Once each component is ready, you have to arrange them into the Burritos. It’s as easy as that! You can also try other Mexican treats like the Mexican Tarts with Refried Beans and Sour Cream and Mexican Salad .

Tortillas are at the heart of Mexican cuisine. With many an interesting filling, you can turn these Flour Tortillas into satiating and lip-smacking snacks that can even replace a meal. Here, we have used a wholesome combination of whole wheat flour and plain flour to make these Flour Tortillas. You can even make a large batch of these when you find time and store them in the freezer for quick use on a hurried day.
In this fantabulous Mexican recipe, whole wheat tortillas get a double flavour boost – from the multi-textured refried beans stuffing, as well as from the tangy green tomato salsa. The salsa is a real tongue-tickler, with spring onions, spice powders and other flavour enhancers like coriander and green chillies. The refried beans is equally tasty, with protein-packed rajma and a team of tasty ingredients like onions, tomatoes and spice powders. Refried Beans Stuffed Whole Wheat Tortilla with Green Tomato Salsa gives you a super-tasty way to top up on protein and iron, two essentials for healthy skin. Protein helps maintain the elasticity of skin, while iron ensures a good supply of oxygen to the skin cells, which is necessary to stay healthy.

This is not one of those bland, cheesy fondues! It is a spicy treat, a true tongue-tickler that will shake awake your taste buds. Here, two exotic varieties of cheese are perked up with a flavourful, homemade chunky salsa, jalapeno paste, peppy seasonings and a couple of other ingredients, which lend the Mexican Cheese Fondue a perfectly creamy texture and fabulous flavour. Although the ingredients sound exotic, they are now easily available in specialty stores and the gourmet sections of supermarkets and online shopping websites, so you will not have any trouble finding them. When adding the cheese to the fondue, it is important to stir the mixture in the shape of an eight to prevent it from sticking to the bottom. Watch our video to understand the nuances of making this delicacy. You can also try other fondues like@r 22739 and Asparagus Fondue .

Myriad ingredients added when cooking the rajma, such as tomatoes, green chillies and garlic give it a saucy consistency and a finger-licking flavour as well. Refried Beans can be refrigerated once done, and enjoyed with any meal, from breakfast and dinner, to a quick snack anytime you feel hungry, just as they do in Mexico.
