Quick Red Posole w/ Beans (pg. 136) garnished with Pickled Red Onions (pg. 43)
But first...I'm sure you've heard of a little cookbook by the name of Viva Vegan! Trust me when I say that you need this in your life! SO good. I was fortunate enough to test for Terry, and the entire process really changed the way I viewed Latin cuisine. I'm from South Texas, so I really thought I knew a lot about cooking some food...but this book really has a bunch of different cultures in it. I felt like I was taking a trip to North, Central, or South America just reading a description of the food.
Yellow Rice w/ Garlic (pg. 96)
My favorite thing about testing was how inexpensive the ingredients were. If you live in a Mexican-American neighborhood or have access to a Mexican grocer, a lot of this stuff will cost you less than a couple of bucks. The most I paid for any single ingredient was probably 5 bucks...and the aji paste is still in my fridge.
