  • lamb kefta lumpia
    Once you defrost a package of lumpia wrapper, you end up wasting it if you don't use it all up. In an effort to roll everything in sight into a lumpia, my husband and I decided to experiment with some ground lamb we had seasoned to make lamb kefta kabob. We paired it with a cucumber yogurt dipping sauce and some cilantro chutney. This unexpected appetizer tasted delicious with both dips. Lamb lumpia is now part of the game plan for all our future lumpia rolling parties! lumpia wrapperground lambonionpaprikacuminsaltpeppercayenne pepperparsleycilantrocinnamongaram masalamintmushroomseggfrying oil

  • rick bayless' shrimp linguine with garlic mojo, chipotle, and parmesan
    This ain't your regular old garlic pasta dish. This recipe is instantly elevated with the use of garlic mojo - a Mexican condiment made up of concentrated garlic seasoned with lime in olive oil. The mojo in combination with chipotle chiles makes this a truly unique pasta dish that can't really be classified into a specific cuisine. This is a great spicy go-to dish for the weekday or weekend.
