Cookbook Wednesday | Mexican Fiesta Cookbook

Mexican Fiesta Cookbook

May the fourth be with you.” Wait! Wait! don’t go. I was just trying to let you in on the reason this month’s calendar marked today, May 4th, as Star Wars Day. Something tells me you “guys” knew before me but, just in case…here’s a clipping from an ABC News article.

”German news TV channel N24 mistranslated George Lucas in an 2005 interview, interpreting his famous line, "May the Force be with you," as "Am 4. Mai sind wir bei Ihnen" (We are with you on May 4). Thus a holiday was born.”

I’ve actually attempted a Star Wars celebration on this blog before. It was for the anniversary of the Star Wars movie hitting the big screen. What? You missed it, well, then you don’t get to nibble at the Han-Burgers or the Tie Fighter Fries OR, R2-D2’s Treats! Especially since now you would have to get those recipes from my grandson Noah as the book is his prized cookbook, lol…

Okay, here’s the link. Now, enough about Star Wars, let’s check out this recipe for Fire and Ice from the Favorite Brand Name Mexican Fiesta cookbook published in 2003.

Fire and Ice

Just look at these ingredients! Ice Cream, Raspberries, Kiwifruit AND Jalapeño! (Did you notice on the calendar that the Capsicum has been named Herb of the Year by the The International Herb Association.)

How hot is that, literally!!!

The Little Pepper Book

Have you had enough yet? No. Good! I really, really want to share a recipe for Chile Sherry that I discovered in The Little Pepper Book published in 1982. Now, hot pepper sauce is nothing new, I know. (it’s very popular in Caribbean cuisine) However, it just never occurred to me to make my own. Easy Peasy and just think of the possibilities!

Chile Sherry Recipe

From the same book, I also uncovered a dish for Chile Fried Cauliflower from Malaysia. It’s called Sambal Goreng Kembango. (who doesn’t need a fiery recipe for cauliflower?) Perhaps, Marion:)
