Caldillo de chipotle

My first recipe !

This one's a sorta modified basic (you can leave out the chipotle sauce and add more tomatoes, veggie broth or water). You can pour it over some chiles rellenos, beanballs with rice or whatever you like.


8 oz. Chipotle adobo sauce
3 Roma tomatoes cut into octaves
1 1/2 tsp. Minced garlic
1/4 cup Vegetable broth

Blend tomatoes with chipotle sauce, garlic and veggie broth until smooth.
Bring to boil, stirring occasionally.
Has the sauce reached its boiling point? okay then, wait about 5 minutes and turn the heat off.
You can now add some salt to taste.
Let the sauce stand for a few minutes and after that, it'll be ready to use !

Sorry, i know that's a crappy picture, but my camera's auto-focus is broken or something, besides, i'm not a very talented food photographer as you obviously can see, hah : ( !
Anyway...remember, my pictures may be hideous, but my recipes are not ; ) !

[veganized] traditional mexican food, woahhhh ; ) !

Let me introduce myself.

My name is Andrea, i was born south the border (Tijuana, Baja California. to be specific) and i love to cook.
I created this blog because of all those crappy chain restaurants claiming to sell mexican food; i want to show you how mexican food really is, by uploading some basic recipes (such as: tacos, burritos, enchiladas, chilaquiles, tortas...and many many more) prepared the traditional or most common way as possible.
I am no vegan myself (i'm doing my best to keep dairy out of my diet; that FYH 'cheese' is making me think about making the switch from lacto-veg to vegan n_n), but I'll try to veganize every mexican recipe i can, for all those vegan folks out there that dig spicy food : )

If you want me to veganize a mexican food recipe
you can send it in here ; ) --> (or just say hello, if you like)
