Corn Tortillas

Making your own tortillas tastes so much better than the plastic wrapped you find in the store. At first it may feel a little tricky to transfer the flattened dough to the griddle but it is quite easy once you get a hang of it.

Adobada (Marinated Pork)

This is our absolute favorite when it comes to Mexican fast food! Great in tacos, burritos and on top of fries or rice. Flavorful without being spicy, I am confident it will become your favorite, too!

Mexican Spice Mix / Taco Seasoning

In Sweden we use “tacokrydda” not only to flavor ground beef for tacos, but also for “tacopaj” (Mexican inspired quiche). It is great to have on hand and can be used when making chili, tex mex dip and much more.

Pico de Gallo

Means “rooster’s beak” in Spanish, assumedly because people pinched it between thumb and forefinger when eating. It is a fresh, crude salsa used as a topping or component for many Mexican dishes.


There is no comparison to freshly made guacamole. You can use it in tacos, hamburgers or as a dip for nacho chips, just to mention a few. Make sure your avocados are nice and soft for the perfect flavor.

Basic Salsa

Salsa means sauce in Spanish and includes many different types. This one is reminiscent of the tomato based salsas sold in jars at the grocery store. You can experiment with flavors and add anything you like to this basic recipe. Great as a dip and on top of scrambled eggs!

Swedish Oddities

Sweden has a some exotic and somewhat unusual dishes. Living abroad we tend to miss them, so I learned to cook a few. Please enjoy!
