Mexican Fiesta

My sister was in town over Labor Day and we made these recipes for dinner one night.  I had almost forgotten about them until I went over to my sister-in-law's house the other night for dinner and she made them as well (she's the one who gave me the recipes).  I was quickly reminded of how yummy each of these things are!

Homemade Salsa
from Anisa Izzolo

12 Roma Tomatoes
3 Jalapenos
3 Serrano or Anaheim Chilis

Boil tomatoes until skin just starts to peel.  Place in blender or food processor, add whole jalapenos and chilis and blend.  Cool down in fridge before serving.


Chicken Flautas
from Anisa Izzolo

1 Rotisserie Chicken, shredded
3 tbsp. (appx.) homemade salsa (recipe above)
Corn Tortillas
Oil for Frying

Heal oil for frying.  Mix shredded chicken with salsa.  Microwave tortillas two at a time in between moistened papertowels for 25 seconds.  Place 2 tbsp. chicken in corn tortilla and roll up.  Secure with toothpick.  Fry flauta until golden, remove and place on paper towel lined plate.  Sprinkle with salt and cool down before eating.

Guacamole Dip
from Anisa Izzolo


4 Large Avocados or 6 Small Avocados
1 Container Whipped Cream Cheese
1 Jar of Sliced Jalapenos

In blender or food proecssor, mix juice from jar of jalapenos (not the jalepenos) and add avocados (pitted and skinned).  Add whipped cream cheese.  Blend until smooth.

I'm so glad you posted this. We all loved it and I had forgotten all about it. Can't wait to see my little niece and of course you and Vince too.
