Guilty: Pumpkin Pie Tamales

We’re only about a week from September and you know what that means… pumpkin flavored everything! From coffee to doughnuts to even pumpkin raviolis ’tis the season for pumpkin-EVERYTHING. IMUSA, leader in Hispanic cookware, is even jumping on the trend with their recipe for “Pumpkin-Pie” Tamales. This recipe takes the traditional Mexican Masa tamales and adds all the fall season’s favorite ingredients like ginger, nutmeg, raisins and pumpkin (of course), leaving this sweet side dish a sure favorite with anyone who gets their hands on one.

Now I must admit – I jump pretty firmly on the “pumpkin” bandwagon as well – in fact I am always happy to find a restaurant serving pumpkin pie in the Spring! But never would I have thought to make TAMALES with pumpkin. But this I gotta try.

Guilt Free: Mango Chicken Quesadillas

Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War, and has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage. Celebrations in the United States often extend beyond the actual day to encompass an entire week, with parades, festivals and fiestas that include music, dancing, and food. A dish like Mango Chicken Quesadillas takes the very traditional Mexican dish but combines shredded chicken with brown mustard, honey and Tabasco creating a flavorful filling and adding mango for a sweet twist. By preparing the meal on the IMUSA Cast Aluminum Comal the food is made healthier and the non-stick surface leaves clean up a breeze. Bringing a vigorous, home-style aroma to the party, this traditional Mexican dish will smells as delicious as it tastes.
