Esquites—or, “Corn in a Cup,'' as our family lovingly called it growing up—is a delicious and flavorful snack, side, and party treat that we love making (and eating)! We’re excited to share our quick & easy Esquites recipe with you as an invitation to try our NEW Traditional Botana Sauce and enjoy a nostalgic snack that’s a staple in our Mexican-American culture and our hometown, Laredo!
The dips table at our family carne asadas is an array of different flavors! From guacamole and pico de gallo to queso and salsa, we’ve got something for everyone. One dip we especially like to make is this Cilantro Spinach Artichoke Dip. We think you’ll like it too!
Cookie Butter & Jelly Sandwich, anyone?! That's right, we used our very own Mexican Shortbread Cookies to make homemade cookie butter. And wouldn't you know it—now today is already that much butter—er, better.
One day, we were daydreaming about the giant cookie cakes we used to have at birthdays as children, and we had a sweet idea! Our Abuela Approved, bite-size Mexican Wedding Cookies would make a great Wedding Cookie Cake! Simply add candles and your favorite ice cream on top, and you’ve got a gluten free cake worth celebrating.
For those who love cake, cookies, and chocolate, we present to you: Mexican Chocolate Cream Cake! With all the nostalgic flavor of the Mexican hot chocolate we grew up sipping at our grandma’s house, this chocolate cake is decadent and delicious! Save this recipe for birthdays, family get-togethers, and as a dessert after a yummy meal.
Our favorite tostadas growing up were simple—a heaping serving of beans and a handful of cheese! In the spirit of inclusivity at the table, we’ve made this tostada vegan. Just slather on our Vegan Refried Black Beans, guacamole, and all your favorite toppings (endless possibilities include: salsa, hot sauce, lime juice, jalapeños, and cilantro)—we topped ours with pico de gallo and some extra tomatoes!
Layers on layers on layers—seven (siete) layers, to be exact! If you’ve been stuck deciding which dips to make for game day, look no further. Our Mini 7-Layer Dip features all the goods—like queso, beans, guac, crema, and salsa—in single-serving tortilla cups! Is there anything more sporty than a mobile snack?
We love dip, all kinds of dip! Guac, queso, spinach & artichoke, ranch, buffalo chicken—you get the gist! But we had an idea: sweet dip! And then we had another idea: sweet dip WITH our Grain Free Churro Strips. Several ideas later (what can we say? We’ve got a lot of ideas!), we created a recipe for Hazelnut Dip with Churros. You won’t be disappointed!
Apple pie meets one of our family’s favorite treats—buñuelos! Familia, we present to you: Buñuelo Apple Pie! This pie is inspired by memories of the cookies, sweet breads, brownies, and many pies that line our family’s dessert table each year at the holidays. Make sure there’s some ice cream to scoop and dollop atop each slice!
Every holiday season, our family serves an assortment of empanadas, both savory and sweet! We spend hours lined up in the kitchen, rolling out the dough, scooping in different fillings, and pressing each one closed with forks. It’s a time to gather together and make flakey and delicious treats with fillings that range from chorizo to beans, and all the way to apples and peaches! Empanadas are our family’s holiday love language. So, we couldn't be happier to share our recipe for grain free Sweet Potato Empanadas with you.
Add this recipe to the list of dips we can’t get enough of—guacamole, queso, salsa, ranch, spinach artichoke, and now, Guajillo Hummus. We’ve paired ours with fried and seasoned pieces of our Grain Free Chickpea Flour Tortillas as crisps for dipping! Just the right amount of spice for a rich flavor that cannot be beat!
Our familia believes that good things comes in all different shapes and sizes. For instance, our Grain Free Tortillas as crunchy croutons in salads, or strips in soup! Whether you like them small, square, thick, or tall, this method is all about adding another dimension to your meal, without any effort.
These paletas take us back to summer days—sitting by the pool, under the sun, with our childhood friends and neighbors. There’s nothing like a refreshing Fresas con Crema Paleta on a warm summer day! Might we suggest topping yours with some melted chocolate and our Grain Free Churro Strips?
We’ve always loved carnitas, and we’ve always (always!) loved flautas. Inspired by the way our Grandma Campos created many carnitas-style dishes, and golden-standard flautas, we thought, why not combine the two? Better yet, we wanted to make it vegan so that everyone can enjoy the savory flavors of carnitas rolled up in a crunchy tortilla! We hope this Spaghetti Squash Carnitas Flautas recipe brings you and yours together and makes everyone feel welcome and included at the table.
