I am a big fan of soup; I feel like they are very comforting as they are hot. But this shrimp gazpacho changed my mind, I’ve never loved a cold soup as much as I love this. For this recipe your need: tomato and clam juice cocktail, cooked shrimp, chopped avocados, cubed cucumbers, diced tomatoes, red onions, chopped cilantro, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. In a large bowl, mix the tomato and clam juice cocktail, shrimp, avocados, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, then put in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Nothing easier and tastier than that, you should absolutely give it a try.

Chiles en escabeche

Chiles en escabeche, also known as pickled jalapeños, is a Mexican side dish that goes with everything. You will need jalapeño (chilies), olive oil, thickly sliced yellow onions, thickly sliced carrots, unpeeled garlic, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, bay leaves, dried oregano, thyme and sugar. Wash the chilies and cut the tip (it will allow the vinegar to penetrate the chilies). Fry your veggies in olive oil, boil everything with the vinegar and seasoning and store in sterilized jars.

These are my favorite go-to whenever I want to eat some Mexican food. I know that there are no tacos- but trust me, try these lesser-known recipes and you will thank me later. You may have noticed that I haven’t put written the measurements for the ingredients, because I am a firm believer that everything is to taste, so if you like avocados, put as much as you want.
