Shrimp Fried Rice

This is the best fried rice ever and its done with things you find in your kitchen including leftovers, not to mention with the deliciously spicy Salsa Maya! Not to boast but seriously it does go on everything ;P 

So we always have frozen shrimp in my house, but don't you worry if you don't, you can add any protein or leave it vegetarian! Also all the veggies you forgot to use that are about to go bad bring them out... I don't know about you but being Mexican, we always have left over rice. pssst also if you go out to Chinese restaurant there is always left over steamed rice that no one ate haha take it to go and make an even better fried rice then them. 

Okay enough of the chatter, here is the recipe (obviously use what you have that's the point)

 

6 shrimp, peeled & deveined
1 carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
1 c. broccoli, ( I used frozen ) cut in small pieces
2 Chinese boxes of white rice or 2 cups of cooked white rice
4 Tbps Salsa Maya
soy sauce to taste
3 Tbps vegetable oil
salt

Heat up a skillet to medium heat, add oil to pan and first put in your vegetable that takes longer to cook, in this case the carrots. Saute them for a minute and then add onions and saute for another minute, and so on with your other veggies. Add broccoli and saute until the vegetables are tender, about 4-5 minutes. Meanwhile cut the shrimp into small pieces. Move the vegetables towards the outside of the skillet to make a circle in the middle. Add more oil and add the shrimp and sprinkle salt, when they are almost cooked add the rice. Saute everything together for 3-4 minutes. Add the soy sauce, & SALSA MAYA. Stir until completely mixed. Cook for another 2-4 minutes and serve! 

Literally takes about 15-20 minutes to make and it is ohhh sooo delicious

So Queso means cheese in Spanish, but Que-sooo in Texas is much more than that ( and a big deal for TEX-MEX lovers). So forget velveeta and rotel because that is not why your here. Get ready for a recipe that will have you making it in batches!

If you want to alternate for another cheese go for it..

1/4 lb. American Cheese, grated
1/2 lb. cheddar Cheese, grated
1/4 lb. Mozzarella Cheese, grated
6 Tbsp. Salsa Maya

Yum Bowl Wings

This is a MUST at all the Big Game parties. It is not always just wings you can also throw in some drums and thighs, which personally I love. There is a great variety of sauces that you can make to toss on your wings and many ways just to prepare the wings, but these are our favorites!

 

Prepping the wings:

- Heat oil in a skillet or pot at 375F
-In a bowl toss wings with flour until they're lightly covered
-Once the oil has reached the temperature, fry the wings a couple at a time for 5-7 minutes each
-Place on a paper towel to remove extra oil and sprinkle salt on the wings
-Put in a bowl and add your favorite sauce and toss until incorporated
-Serve with ranch, blue cheese, celery sticks carrots and a lot of napkins!

Salsa Maya is now friends with Peanut Thai Sauce and they've combined for a SPECTACULAR treat!! 

Use this sauce as you would regularly, over chicken, on spring rolls (my fav), over a salad like a dressing or on some shrimp!

Seriously it is life changing GOOD!

 

INGREDIENTS

2T peanut butter
4T soy sauce
1 lime
2T salsa Maya

Holiday Meal

Salsa Maya Turkey

10 lb. Turkey
2 jars SALSA MAYA
2 cups chicken broth
Salt

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and position an oven rack on the bottom third of your oven. Make sure your turkey is thawed and thatyou remove any giblets or packaging from inside the turkey. Place the turkey on a roasting rack and on a roasting pan and pour the broth into the pan. Place the turkey (breast side up) and rub with salt and SALSA MAYA. Make sure SALSA MAYA is evenly spread inside and out of the turkey. Place turkey in the oven andturn down the heat to 350. Rule of thumb is 13 minutes per pound; so it will take around 2.5 hours to cook. Make sure you check the temperature half way to see how fast it is cooking. Baste the turkey every 45 minutes with the juices released on the bottom of the pan ( take out the turkey and close the oven door; don't let the heat escape! ) using a spoon or a baster. If in the last 20 minutes your turkey is getting to dark, cover with aluminum foil. Make sure your turkey is at an internal temperature of 165 degrees in the thickest part ( thigh). Carve and Enjoy!
