Red and Green Empanadas
These little turnovers are like miniature pies. You can vary the fillings and really have fun experimenting with different jams and jellies. There are a lot of jellies flavored with peppers, so look in the jam and jelly section of your grocery store or a gourmet specialty store. You can always make your own hot variation by adding cayenne pepper, finely diced chiles of your choice to your favorite flavor of jam. If you don’t have time to make your own pie crust, you can always substitute premade refrigerated pie crusts. These delectable little pies also make great holiday gifts.
Chile de Arbol Christmas Salad
This is my take on the popular Ensalada de Noche Buena (Christmas Eve Salad) that is served in Mexico. The jicama provides a nice crunchy texture to the salad, but if they are unavailable, use a crisp Granny Smith apple. For added color diced beets are sometimes added in the traditional salad. Pomegranates are in season this time of year, and the seeds add color as well as flavor to this holiday dish.
Green Chile Enchiladas
These enchiladas are always popular at a party. The tortillas can be filled and the sauce prepared ahead of time. For spicier enchiladas, use hotter chiles.
Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas
If you’ve never tasted homemade tortillas, you’re in for a real treat. These are perfect to serve warm with butter or as an accompaniment to soup.
