Mexico Round-up and June Destination

I hope all of our MKMW friends had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Welcome to our round-up for Mexico...

First up we have Margaret at Tea and Scones with a a delicious Mexican dinner -- stacked enchiladas made with homemade tortillas, complete with a traditional Mexican dessert, flan...

Wow, that looks perfect! What a show stopper!


Next up, Rosa at Cooking with Rosie made some beautiful dessert empanadas, made with raspberry and homemade strawberry jam, don't they look amazing?


Christine at Kits Chow made two Mexican dishes; a snack of Chile-garlic Peanuts, that look spicy enough to liven up any party...

and also a refreshing Mexican jicama snack with shreds of jicama and lime.


And finishing off our culinary "trip" to Mexico, we have a new traveler, Kayte at Grandma's Kitchen Table! Welcome to the group, Kayte! She made a lovely Mexican lunch of Spicy Mexican Soup with Shrimp, Steak Quesadillas, Mexican Black Bean Salad and Mexican Corn Salad, doesn't it look delicious?


It was so great to see some familiar friends and a new traveler with us for Mexico!

Do you recognize this flag?

Time to announce our June destination, drum roll please ... India! MKMW traveler Margaret suggested we travel to India for June, what a fun summer destination, with plenty of flavor and spice. If you would like to travel with us, just post an Indian recipe or meal on your blog and leave a comment in this post with a link to your blog post and I will include your dish in the round-up. Please post your dish and comment by June 30th and stay tuned for our India round-up and July destination on July 1st. New travelers are always welcome, just jump right in with an Indian dish and post in a link in the comments.

Thanks so much for everyone who cooked along for Mexico! I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to cook with you all last month but look forward to cooking along and seeing what everyone comes up with for India :)

Happy travels,
