Mexican Dessert Recipes – Delicious Desserts
When you think of Mexican food, you probably think of tacos, burritos, and chips and salsa. Possibly you think of a cold margarita, beer, or iced tea. However, do you think about what you will enjoy for dessert? Believe it or not, there are a lot of great Mexican dessert recipes out there! One of the most popular Mexican desserts is the empanada. You combine butter, cream cheese, and flour to make a ball of dough. After refrigerating the dough overnight, you form it into “rounds” and add a spoonful of fruit preserves to the center of each one. Then, you bake them for about fifteen minutes. When they are finished baking, roll them in cinnamon sugar. They are yummy!
If you enjoy enchiladas, you are sure to like the next Mexican dessert recipe. Apple enchiladas can be served hot with vanilla ice cream. To make the enchiladas, fill tortillas with canned apple pie filling. Then you will prepare a sauce on the stovetop, make from butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and water. Pour the sauce over the enchiladas, and bake them in the oven for about twenty minutes. Then enjoy!
Flan is a classic Mexican dessert that is served in most Mexican restaurants. Not everyone likes it, but when it is prepared correctly, it can be really great. One caveat before making flan: you will need ramekins to bake the flans in, so purchase them before you get started! You will cook sugar in a saucepan until it is caramelized, and then pour some into each ramekin. Then mix together several eggs, sugar, evaporated milk, and vanilla. Pour the custard mix into the ramekins. Bake it in a water bath until an inserted knife comes out clean, about forty-five minutes. You may either enjoy it warm or chilled.
Sopapillas are similar to empanadas but they are fried. You make dough from flour, baking powder, salt, shortening, and water. Then you form the dough into small balls and fry them in vegetable oil. Drain the sopapillas well, and then sprinkle them with honey and/or powdered sugar. See, Mexican dessert recipes are plentiful and easy!
If you enjoy margaritas, you will love Margarita Cake! The cake is a Bundt-style cake made from orange cake mix, vanilla pudding, eggs, oil, water, lemon juice, triple sec, and tequila. While your cake is baking, prepare the delicious glaze for the top! Combine confectioners’ sugar, tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. Pour the glaze over the top of the cake while it is still warm.
As you can tell, there are Mexican food is not just about tacos and salsa! There are many easy and delicious Mexican desserts that will add a sweet end to your meal.
