Fab Four Mexican Recipes

>> Friday, September 13, 2013

Some people think that Cinco de Mayo is the Mexican Independence Day, but Mexicans really celebrate their independence from Spain on September 16. On this date in the year 1810, they began a revolt against Spain, and eventually became a free country. It's a national holiday in which people make special foods and enjoy great celebrations, fireworks, fancy cakes and cookies, and lots of decorations.

In honor of the holiday, I'm presenting four fabulous authentic Mexican dishes -- some ancient, some modern, all perfectly easy to make. These talented Mexican cooks and bloggers deserve a good look, if you love Mexican food as much as we do!

1: Empanadas of the Immaculate Conception (meat turnovers)from  Pati's Mexican Table.

2: Stuffed Chicken with Mango-Poblano Sauce, from What's Cooking, Mexico? - luscious mangoes and tangy poblano peppers dress up chicken breasts.

3: Red Pork Pozole Soup, from Mexico in My Kitchen - a traditional savory soup with large white hominy kernels.

4: Polvorones Ricas (holiday cookies dusted with powdered sugar), from De La Tierra - these sugar cookies are especially popular at Easter.

Viva Mexico!
