Cooking at Ingredients - South of the Border!

I'm sad.

Tuesday night was my last class - at least for a while - at Ingredients.

For our final night we did Mexican. Lana shared a few extra recipes with us. She demonstrated her salsa, Enchilada Pie, Mexican Brides cookies, Candied Orange Peel, and Pan De Elote. Plus she shared how to make taco seasoning and homemade tortilla chips.

If you'd like all the recipes, visit:

Lana and Nick

Her fantastic salsa. Nick said he could pretty much take care of that bowl himself!

Enchilada Pie.

Mexican Brides cookies. They are so tender.

Candied orange peels... one of my favorite sweets.

Wouldn't this make your guests and family feel special?

Pan De Elote

16 oz can creamed corn
1 c bisquick
1 egg, beaten
2 TBL melted margarine
2 TBL sugar
1/2 c milk
4 oz can chopped green chilies, drained
8 oz shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees, grease 9 x 9 square or round cake pan, combine corn, bisquick, egg, margarine, sugar and milk. Mix well, spoon 1/2 mixture into greased pan, cover with chopped green chilies, cover with 1/2 of the cheese, spoon remain batter on top and add remaining cheese.

Bake 30 minutes or until cheese is melted.


  1. Yum! The enchilada pie looks divine!

  2. Oh you must be ready to host a fabulous party by now! (Not that you weren't before, of course!) ~Lili

  3. I didn't feel hungry until I read this post. Thanks. Ha!
