Authentic Mexican Feast from Rick Bayless

Sunday, July 25, 2010

We got in the mood for some Mexican tastes, so I consulted Rick Bayless' recipes online. EVERY single recipe I've made from him (about 10) has been incredible. Here's what we had:

Dishes (Clockwise from top-left): Queso, Grilled Chicken, Creamy Chicken,
Pickled Onions, Tuna, Tortillaa. Mushrooms in center

  • Bacon with Carmelized Onion and Sun-Dried Tomato Queso Fundido
  • Fresh Flour Tortillas
  • Tuna in Jalapeno Escabeche
  • Grilled Chicken with Escabeche Sauce
  • Creamy Chicken and Greens with Raosted Poblano
  • Pickled Onions
  • Stewed Mushrooms with Onion and Garlic
The Queso had excellent tastes, but the Queso Blanco I used didn't melt well and got clumpy. Tastes were good enough to try again.

Tuna  is a very good dish that I've made before. You won't believe how it developes a sweet/sour flavor, not just spiciness. Cut jalapeno / liquid in half to make a mild version. Maybe a good topping on crackers for cocktail hour.

Creamy chicken was the clear winner. Incredible tastes, nice spice. Used leftover cubes of chicken breast.
