How to Make Bolillos - Mexican Baguettes
Author: 
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 10
 
Bolillos are Mexico's version of the French baguette. With the trademark thin and crispy crust, these little rolls are every bit as good. Despite the long rising times, the recipe is really easy, and certainly worth the effort.
Ingredients
Ingredients for the starter:
  • ¾ Cup water
  • ½ Tsp Active dry yeast
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
Ingredients for the Dough:
  • 3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1.5 Tsp Active dry yeast
  • 2 Tsp Salt
  • 60ml Melted butter
  • 240ml Warm water
Instructions
  1. This recipe does require a starter, sometimes called a preferment or poolish. To make the starter, place a cup of all-purpose flour in your mixer bowl.
  2. Add a half teaspoon of active dry yeast followed by 180ml of water.
  3. Place the bowl on your mixer with the beater paddle fitted.
  4. Mix this on medium low speed until totally combined. This will take 30 to 60 seconds.
  5. Remove the bowl from the machine, cover with cling-wrap and allow this to stand overnight.
  6. The following day the skurry will be bubbly and active.
  7. Add a further 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 and a half teaspoons active dry yeast, 60ml of melted butter and 240ml of warm water.
  8. Place the bowl on your mixer with the dough hook attached.
  9. Start the mixer on slow for the first minute then increase the kneading speed to medium slow and allow this to knead for 7 minutes.
  10. Once kneading is complete, cover the bowl with clingwrap and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 2 to 3 hours until doubled in size.
  11. After the first rise, you will have a lovely soft dough that is only slightly sticky.
  12. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface.
  13. Weigh the dough and divide this into 10 equal potions.
  14. Roll each portion into a round by placing it in the palm of your hand. Cup the fingers of your other hand over the portion and using a circular motion, form the roll.
  15. Cover the dough balls with cling-wrap and allow these to rest for 15 minutes. This allows the gluten to relax in preparation for the next step.
  16. Working with one ball at a time, flatten the ball into an oval shape.
  17. Fold the top third of the dough downwards and press to seal.
  18. Fold the bottom edge of the dough up and over this. Press this to seal the edge.
  19. Hold your hands at angles to the edges and roll the dough to form the bolillo.
  20. Transfer this to a lightly floured baking sheet and continue forming the remaining rolls.
  21. Cover the rolls with cling-wrap and allow them to rise for a further 60 to 90 minutes in a warm place, until doubled in size.
  22. minutes before the second rise is completed, preheat your oven to 230c or 450f. Place a small roasting pan in the bottom of your oven at this time.
  23. When the oven is up to temperature, use a razor sharp thin blade to slash the rolls along the length.
  24. Open the oven, pour a cup of cold water into the roasting tin, and place the rolls in the center of the oven.
  25. Bake the rolls for 20 to 25 minutes until golden.
  26. Remove the rolls from the oven and transfer them to a rack to cool.
  27. And there we have it.... a batch of beautifully crispy and aromatic bolillos.

How to Make Wheat Flour Tortillas - How to Make Cheesy Quesadillas - Homemade Tortillas From Scratch
Author: 
Recipe type: Tortillas
Cuisine: Mexican
 
Some time ago we made corn tortillas. Today we're going to make soft and chewy wheat flour tortillas which are the more popular version of tortillas in Northern Mexico. After making the tortillas, we're also going to make a couple of cheesy melted quesadillas.
Ingredients
For the tortillas
  • 300g All-purpose flour
  • 5ml Baking powder
  • 2.5ml Salt
  • 60g Vegetable shortening
  • 125ml Warm water
For the quesadillas
  • 6 Tortillas
  • 200g Mature cheddar / Jack cheese grated
  • ½ Red pepper
  • 1 Large pickles jalapeno pepper
Instructions
  1. To start, you will need 300g of all-purpose flour, 5ml or a teaspoon of baking powder, 2.5ml or half teaspoon of salt, 60g of vegetable fat or shortening and 125ml or a half cup of warm water.
  2. Place the flour, salt and baking powder in your food processor. Pulse this briefly to combine.
  3. Add the shortening to the bowl and machine this for about 10 seconds to cut this into the flour.
  4. Pour in the water and run the machine until the dough comes together and runs around the edge of the bowl.
  5. Tilting the machine from side while it mixes the dough helps to get a good even consistency in the dough.
  6. Turn the dough out onto your work surface and press it into a block. Wrap the dough in cling-wrap and allow it to rest on the counter for 30 minutes.
  7. After resting, divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
  8. Place one of the balls on a lightly floured work surface and flatten it out into a disc of about 7 inches or 18cm.
  9. Use your rolling pin to roll these out until about 9 to 10 inches in diameter or 22 to 25cm. At this stage they will be about 1mm in thickness.
  10. Repeat this until all of the tortillas are formed.
  11. Heat a dry pan over high heat. When the pan is smoking hot drop a few of the tortillas into the pan.
  12. Toast them for 30 to 40 seconds, then flip them over and repeat.
  13. Remove these from the pan and continue with the remaining tortillas.
  14. You can keep your tortillas fresh for a few days in an airtight container or zip lock bag, or freeze them indefinitely.
  15. To make your quesadillas, dice a half a red pepper, and finely chop one large pickled jalapeño pepper.
  16. Mix these together in a bowl.
  17. Grate 200g of mature cheddar or Monterey Jack and place this in a bowl. Add the mixed peppers and mix these into the cheese.
  18. To make up the quesadillas, spread a generous dose of the filling over one side of a tortilla.
  19. Fold the open side over the filling and press it down to secure.
  20. Heat a pan over medium high heat and drop the quesadillas into the pan.
  21. Toast the quesadillas until the cheese is well melted, turning every 90 seconds.
  22. Remove the quesadillas from the pan, cut them through the center and serve immediately accompanied with sour cream for dipping.

Sherherd's Pie Towers - a Great Way to use Left-overs, and Just as Easy From Scratch!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Pie
 
These single portion shepherd's pies are a great way to use up leftovers, or you can make them quite easily from scratch. I am using leftover beef filling from the empanadas we made just a few days back.
Ingredients
For Each Portion You Will Need...
  • 250g Savory mince (with grated cheese)
  • 250g Stiff mashed potato
  • 1 Egg
  • Finely shredded Parmesan
Instructions
  1. These single portion shepherd's pies are a great way to use up leftovers, or you can make them quite easily from scratch. I am using leftover beef filling from the empanadas we made just a few days back.
  2. All you need for this is the cooked savory ground beef, an equal quantity of stiff mashed potato and finely shredded parmesan cheese. To set the beef, you will also need 1 beaten egg per 250g of beef.
  3. Pour the beaten eggs into the beef and mix this thoroughly.
  4. Take a 4 inch by 2 inch cylinder mold and place it on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.
  5. Half fill the cylinder with the beef, compacting it as you go. Smooth off the surface when you reach halfway.
  6. Continue filling the mold with the mash up to the top, and smooth off the surface.
  7. Carefully slide the mold upwards to leave the contents behind.
  8. Continue molding the towers, leaving 2 inches of space between each, as the beef will spread as it bakes.
  9. Top each of the towers with a generous dose of shredded Parmesan cheese and bake the towers in a preheated oven at 200c or 400f for 15 to 20 minutes until the potato is crispy and golden, and the beef is well set.
  10. Serve the towers immediately with the accompaniments of your choice.
  11. And there it is.... an amazing single portion shepherd's pie topped with creamy potato with a crispy Parmesan crust.

  10. Pouring the beef stock and stir to combine. Turn the heat down to medium and allow this to simmer for for 6 minutes.

  2. Place the cubed turkey meat in a large roasting tin. You can use any part of the turkey, however the drumstick meat will yield the best result.
  3. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the meat and mix this in thoroughly.
  4. Transfer the pan to your freezer for 45 minutes to firm up. This is absolutely necessary as it aids your grinder to get a good clean grind with no fat smearing, resulting in a much better texture of sausage.
  5. Remove the meat from your freezer and and run it through the grinder with a 4mm plate fitted.
  6. Add the coarsely grated cheese to the meat and mix this in briefly.
  7. Pour in the well chilled water and mix everything together until all of water has been absorbed by the meat.
  8. Load the meat mixture into the hopper of your sausage stuffer.
  9. Fit an 18mm funnel to the stuffer and feed the 22mm collagen casing onto the funnel.
  10. Crank the stuffer until the meat reaches the end of the funnel, then twist off the casing.
  11. Apply gentle pressure to the casing at the end of the funnel and start cranking the handle.
  12. When the end of the casing is almost reached, stop cranking, remove the casing from the funnel and twist off the end.
  13. Continue with this process until all of the filling has been used.
  14. To make up individual sausages, crimp the sausage between your thumb and forefinger.
  15. Twist the sausage a few times, then snip it off in the center of the twisted section. Continue until all of the sausages are formed.
  16. Wrap the sausages and transfer them to your refrigerator overnight for the flavors to fully develop before cooking and serving.
  17. To cook the sausage, fry them gently in butter over medium heat until golden on all sides.
  18. Serve immediately with the accompaniments of your choice.

Mexican Hellfire Burgers - Headstands in the Shower - Seriously Hot Burgers!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Burgers
Cuisine: Mexican
 
Today's episode holds something really special for those who love hot and spicy food. These burgers will grow hair on a woman's chest and almost certainly have you doing headstands in the shower. The recipe for the Mexican spice blend is included in the printable recipe for the burgers.
Ingredients
  • 450g Ground beef
  • 450g Ground pork
  • 60ml Mexican spice blend (see below)
  • 6 Giant burger buns
  • 3 Large pickled jalapenos
  • Sour cream
  • Sliced tomato
  • Fresh cilantro / coriander
How to make Mexican Spice Blend
  • 15ml Cumin seeds
  • 15ml Dried coriander leaves
  • 15ml Paprika
  • 5ml Dried oregano
  • 5ml Cayenne pepper (mild) / 15ml (medium) / 25ml (hot)
  • 5ml Garlic granules
  • 10ml Salt
  • (Machine these all until fine in your spice grinder)
Instructions
  1. Place the beef mince and pork mince in a mixing bowl and add the Mexican spice mix.
  2. Massage the spice into the meat thoroughly.
  3. Use your patty press to form the patties. I am making 160g patties, but you can make them any size you prefer. If you don't have a patty press, weigh the meat into portions and form them by hand.
  4. I have giant burger buns, and to match the bun size I am going to press the patties further between cling-wrap. Once at this size, you really want to make a deep indentation in the center of each patty. This prevents the patty from deforming when it is cooked.
  5. If you're following the same weight patty as I am using, press them out to a thickness of 10mm or just short of a half inch.
  6. Put the patties aside while you slice the pickled jalapeños and tomatoes.
  7. You will also need a generous handful of fresh coriander.
  8. Slice and butter the buns.
  9. On the bottom half of each bun, spread a thick layer of sour cream.
  10. Top this with a generous scattering of sliced pickled jalapeño.
  11. Follow this with a good portion of fresh coriander.
  12. Heat your pan over medium high heat and add a little butter.
  13. Grill the patties for 2.5 minutes per side until nicely browned.
  14. Transfer the patties to the buns.
  15. Top the patties with the sliced tomato.
  16. Top the tomato with a generous dose of chilli Doritos and you're ready to serve.

  • 12-16 Chicken wings
  • 15ml Cumin seeds
  • 15ml Dried coriander leaves

Instructions
  1. Starting with the Mexican spice blend, place the cumin seeds, dried coriander leaves, paprika, dried oregano, cayenne pepper a dried garlic granules and salt in your spice grinder.
  2. Putting the powdered spices into the grinder along with the ingredients that require grinding helps the grinder achieve a finer result.
  3. Unpack the chicken wings. Cut away the wing tips and discard them, then slice through the center joint of each wing.
  4. Sprinkle some of the spice blend over the base of a container and pack in a single layer of the wings.
  5. Sprinkle more of the spice followed by another layer of wings.
  6. Continue with this until all of the wings are packed in.
  7. Sprinkle any remaining spice over the top, put the lid on and give it all a good shake-up.
  8. Put the wings aside for 30 minutes to marinate.
  9. Place the all-purpose flour into a bowl, and 4 well whisked eggs into another.
  10. Sprinkle a little of the flour over a platter. This is where the coated wings will set, and the layer of flour prevents the coating from sticking to the plate and getting damaged.
  11. Dredge the wings in the flour to coat them all over.
  12. Dunk the wings in the egg to wet all of the flour.
  13. Then it's back to the flour to get a good solid coating all over.

  17. Use a slotted spoon to lift the wings from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  18. Serve the wings immediately with the accompaniments of your choice.

  8. Blend the mixture thoroughly for 60 seconds. If you're mixing by hand, mix until everything is totally combined.
  9. Place the baking tin into a larger roasting tin and pour the flan mixture into the baking tin.
  10. Pour boiling kettle water into the roasting pan to a depth of 1 inch or 25mm.

How to Make Jalapeno Tabasco Sauce - Making Green Tabasco Sauce at Home!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Sauce / Hot Pepper Sauce / Tabasco
Cuisine: American
 
Tabasco sauce is legendary and has become a household name in just about every country across the world. Today we're going to make the Jalapeño version of Tabasco, but if you have access to Tabaso chillis, you can use these if you prefer. This recipe does not take 3 years like the original Tabasco recipe does, but will yield a sauce that tastes almost exactly the same as the legend.
Ingredients
  • 375g Jalapeno peppers
  • 7g Prague powder #2
  • 190ml White grape vinegar
  • 30ml White grape vinegar
  • 15ml Tapioca flour (if you use xanthum gum, follow the package instructions)
  • Extra vinegar for the relish (to use the pulp)
Instructions
  1. Weigh out the peppers and the Prague powder. The Prague powder will inhibit and growth of unfriendly bacteria and preserve the color of the chillis during fermentation.
  2. Cut the stems away from the peppers and slice them into rings. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to wear gloves. Whatever you do, don't rub your eyes or nose.
  3. Place the chopped peppers and the Prague powder in your food processor and process until fine.
  4. Transfer the processed chillis to a large mouth glass jar. Using a canning funnel really helps when doing this.
  5. Place a double layer of kitchen paper over the top of the jar and tie this securely in place with a length of butcher's twine. And elastic band will also do fine.
  6. Place this in a dark place at a temperature of around 22 - 25c or 72 - 77f for 4 weeks to ferment.
  7. After fermenting, you will notice that the flesh of the peppers is quite mushy. You may also have a little white fungus growing on the surface of the chilli. This is friendly bacteria and can simply be stirred into the chilli.
  8. Pour in 190ml of white grape vinegar, put the lid on and give it a good shake from a minute or two. Place the jar back in its dark home and allow this to stand for 2 weeks. Give it good shake every day or two as this helps the vinegar to break down the solids.
  9. After 2 weeks, transfer the peppers to a tall jug and use your stick blender to liquidize any solids that remain. Place the smooth liquid back into its jar, put the lid on and allow this to stand for a further 2 weeks in a dark place, giving it shake-up every day or two.
  10. After 2 weeks, strain the pulp through a fine filter and gently press the pulp down to extract as much of the liquid as possible. From this quantity you will get about 250ml of liquid.
  11. Transfer the pulp to another sterilized jar and add just enough white grape vinegar to cover the pulp along with 10ml of white sugar. Stir this together, put the lid on, and in 2 weeks you will have an amazing pickled jalapeño relish.
  12. Now on the the sauce.... you will notice that it is still quite thin and if allowed to stand, the solids in the liquid, as fine as they are, will settle to the bottom of the liquid.
  13. To stabilize this and to make the sauce syrupy like the original calls for a very special thickening agent. Tapioca flour does the job perfectly. Xanthum gum also does a great job as it has the same properties as tapioca. You cannot use flour or cornflour.
  14. Mix the tapioca flour with 30ml of white grape vinegar and stir this into the pepper sauce. You will notice a color change. This is temporary as when the tapioca cooks it turns transparent and will not affect the color of the sauce at all.
  15. Pour the sauce into a small pot and bring this to a boil over medium heat, stirring continuously.
  16. You will notice as it comes to a boil how it suddenly turns syrupy and the sauce will coat the back of the spoon.
  17. Remove from the heat and allow this to cool for 15 minutes.
  18. Use a funnel to transfer the sauce to suitable miniature bottles, pop the corks or caps on and you're done.

Recipe type: Smoking / Drying
 
Smoked chilli flakes add a whole new flavor to your food while also adding the heat. I am using Jalapeños, but you can use and peppers of your choice. To Provide the smoke, I am using the Smoke Daddy Vortex.
Ingredients
  • Jalapeño peppers
  • 20ml Bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 lt Water
Instructions
  1. Dissolve 20ml of bicarbonate of soda in a liter of cold water. The chillis will be soaked in this solution the preserve their color. Green and red chillis will darken as they smoke and dry, but will retain their characteristic color instead of turning an unsightly black.
  2. To prepare the peppers, cut of the stems and quarter them length-ways. Transfer the peppers to the bicarb solution and allow them to soak for 5 minutes.
  3. Drain the chillis and transfer them to stainless steel mesh sieves or spatter screens.
  4. A while back, I unboxed and introduced the Vortex passive smoke generator. This is what we're using today.
  5. Place the peppers on the right hand side of your barbecue, and the Vortex smoker near the center. Use your blow torch or a heat gun to set the Vortex smoking. In addition ignite the left hand side burner.
  6. Aldo note the probe thermometer on the right hand side. This helps to monitor the target temperature of 67c or 153f.
  7. Let the peppers smoke for a total of 4 hours.
  8. Remove the peppers from the barbecue. You will notice that they have shriveled significantly, but are not totally dried.
  9. At this stage, you can store the chillis in oil, or continue with the drying process by placing the peppers in an oven at 67c or 153f until totally dried. This can take anything from 4 to 10 hours.
  10. Once totally desiccated, chop the chillis into flakes and store indefinitely in an airtight container.
