Favorite Easy Salsa Recipe

salsa

This is my all time favorite salsa recipe. Chipotle comes from the Nahuatl/Aztec word chilpoctli, which means smoked chili. The chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce add a nice depth of flavor. Using a blender reduces some of the chopping and makes this salsa fast and easy to prepare. You can vary the ingredients according to your own taste. I love this salsa with tortilla chips but find myself sneaking it on eggs, potatoes, rice, pasta, or in salads for extra flavor.

Shrimp Stew, Brazilian Style

Jambalaya

Brazilian Shrimp Stew, also known as Moqueca de Camarao, is flavorful and easy to make. Dende or red palm oil (not kernel palm oil) is rich in carotene antioxidants and gives the stew a nice orange color. Red palm oil is a common cooking ingredient in the tropical belt of Africa, Southeast Asia, and parts of Brazil. It can be found at health food stores and specialty grocers. Don’t worry if you can’t find it, the soup is tasty without it.

Chicken Angelo

The mushrooms, onions, garlic and cheese in this recipe dress up the baked chicken breasts with a nice combination of flavor and texture. I used cremini mushrooms because they have a slightly earthy taste and are more flavorful than button mushrooms. Mushrooms are packed with vitamins, minerals and disease fighting antioxidants. Enjoy!
