Shrimp Empanadas With Creamy Chipotle Sauce A Traditional Mexican  Dish Perfect for picnics

 

This is a traditional dish from northwest Mexico Sinaloa and Nayarit. It is perfect for warm weather and of course, to take on a picnic. The combination of seafood and corn is really extraordinary, plus the chipotle sauce that gives this preparation an even more interesting taste.

It is really very simple to make. If you rather not use the corn masa, you could use store bought puff pastry and bake them instead of frying them. It is not greasy at all if you let them drain properly.

This dish is very common in Mexico. It’s fresh and flavorful. Perfect for a hot weather, it is a great option to take on a picnic, although I recommend to mix the oil and lemon at the very end, right before serving, so the ingredients do not wilt and the lettuce remains fresh and crunchy.

Corn tortilla roll-ups

Corn Tortilla roll-ups are the best picnic recipe. Tortillas are the staple food of Mexico and roll-ups are made as a snack. They are healthy and fill your belly, whether you eat them as snack or as a meal. It’s a whole new take on a lunch time. Corn tortillas are easily available at the grocery and are also very easy  to make at home. In my experience, the homemade tortillas are more flavorful than store-bought. Homemade tortillas can stay fresh up to 1 week in an airtight container. Tortillas can be made in different flavors, such as sun-dried tomato or baby spinach. As for the cheese cream spread, you can also add chopped onion and chopped cilantro. I did not add these below, so adjust quantities to your taste. For extra flavor, add Mexican shredded cheese.

It’s best served with dry coconut and some chopped cilantro, and sometimes also with Indian puffed fried bread that is known as puri. If you’re taking this recipe for a picnic, you can also take some puris along with this dish. Read the rest of this entry »
