Today is Mexican Independence Day! I am super excited to see all the #SundaySupper recipes today. I am a huge fan of Mexican food, so I can’t wait to go through the 50+ recipes below. This group is full of some amazing talent, so I know you will be blown away too.
I kind of cheated here. I didn’t make the tamales. They are on my list of things to try one day, but just haven’t gotten there yet. We have a few really great stands at our farmers market that sell tamales, salsas, hot sauces, and more. We sampled tamales at one stand, and immediately picked up some to bring home. Word to the wise…when the Mexican woman tells you they are spicy, you might want to listen.
Also at the farmers market they have fresh roasted hatch green chilis! I have never had a hatch chili pepper before moving to Colorado, but I have read a lot about them and see them in lots of recipes. I decided to try them in a green chili sauce to serve over our tamales. Again, when they say hot, they mean it! You don’t have to use hatch chili’s for this. I think jalapenos, poblanos, anaheims, and many more would work well too.
