Spicy Marinara Meatballs

Ohhmyy why do meatballs have to be on pasta or something else, just eat a big bowl of these and you will thank us! Super easy to make and makes for an entree or even appetizer. You will end up using most of your jar and you won’t regret it.

Ingredients

1 lb. ground beef (90/10 or 80/20)

1 lb. ground pork

1 L. of your favorite tomato sauce (we used MOM’s)

1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced

3 Tbsp olive oil

5 - 6 Tbsp Salsa Maya + 4 Tbsp more for sauce

3 tsp salt

In a bowl, mix ground beef, ground pork, Salsa Maya & salt. Roll into 1.5 inch balls and set aside. Heat a large pot to medium heat, pour in olive oil & saute the onions for 5 minutes. Place the meatballs in the pot (ps. don’t place them too close to each other & don’t put one on top of the other). Pour the tomato sauce & the extra Salsa Maya. Cover and let it simmer, stir carefully so you don’t break up the meatballs. Simmer for 15-20 minutes and serve in a bowl!! A Baguette goes great with this!!

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 

Que-sooolsamaya

Que-soooo

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..

servings: IDK how many bags of chips do you have? It makes a good amount though

 

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

Heat heavy cream in a saucepan, when it begins to simmer add cheeses a little at a time. Don't stop mixing. Continue adding the cheese until it is all melted and gooey. Add Salsa Maya and remove from heat. Get your chips ready! 

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!

Peanut Thai-Maya Sauce

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!
Awesome part of this recipe is that we all have peanut butter and Salsa Maya at home, there are always soy sauce packets left over from sushi, limes or lemons are always around and well water...

Seriously it is life changing GOOD!

 

INGREDIENTS

2T peanut butter
4T soy sauce
1 lime
2T salsa Maya
4T water (to thin it out, can use unsweetened coconut milk)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until well incorporated!

Enjoy
