Mexican food cooking night
Second exception to no food buying for a month. Mexican food cooking night!
My friend Christina had an amazing Mexican cooking teachings night planned at her house. Her Mexican friend Ingrid taught a group of 8, on how to cook authentic Northern Mexican food.
Once the dough is at the right consistency you ball it up & put it in the tortilla press.
Once you have your filling in the quesidilla you fold it over then push in the excess dough. They kind of look like empanadas in my opinion. However these are traditional Northern Quesidillas. Flat quesidillas with 2 tortillas & filled with cheese originate from the South of Mexico.
Once you have prepared all of your quesidillas you fry them in hot oil. Fry until they are slightly golden brown. If the oil isn’t hot enough the dough won’t cook on the inside so make sure your oil is nice and hot.
The final meal! Poblano pepper or chorizo quesidillas with salsa verde Mexican Creme & Mexican cheese with shrimp ceviche tostadas. It was amazing!
What an amazingly fun night. Thank You so much to Ingrid for teaching us all her amazing recipes. The food was memorable & I’m grateful to have learned her expertise.
I love partaking in different cooking & food events such as this. We are hoping our next night together will be a Greek night. Christina will be the teacher for this & perhaps next up Irish, Polish or French by me !
