Here’s the recipe

Yields 12 taquitos

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Re-Calculate: Ingredients
Serves:
Ingredients
For taquitos
3 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. Pepper
1/2 medium ripe, Fresh Avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
1/2 cup crumbled cotija cheese
1 egg
12 corn tortillas
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Toothpicks
For sauce
3 tomatillos, rinsed and skinned
1/2 medium ripe, Fresh Avocado, pitted and peeled
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions:
For taquitos:

Place potatoes in a medium stock pot with cold water, cover and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until fork-tender. Drain water and mash with fork or potato masher. Add garlic powder, salt, pepper, cotija cheese and egg. Stir until combined. Fold in avocado and set aside.
Wrap tortillas in a kitchen towel and place in the microwave for 1 minute until soft. Carefully remove from towel and allow to cool until easy to handle.
Place two tablespoons of potato mash in the center of each tortilla. Fold one end of tortilla over filling and roll into a snug taquito, making sure not to roll too tightly, as tortilla can break apart. Secure taquito with toothpick.
In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. With tongs, carefully place each taquito into hot oil and fry; turning over until all sides are cooked and golden brown, about 4 minutes. Drain in a plate lined with paper towels. Remove toothpicks.

For the sauce (this can be done in advance):

In a saucepan, place tomatillos and cover with water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
Place cooked tomatillos into blender with avocado and cilantro. Blend on high until smooth; season with salt and pepper. If sauce is too thick, add some of the leftover tomatillo broth to loosen. Pour sauce into four individual bowls.

To serve:

On four plates, place three taquitos and a small bowl with sauce. Dip taquitos into sauce and enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

Shrimps over Lime Guacamole

Miss Mevi recipe: shrimp over lime guacamoleHello everyone!

Thanks a lot to everyone who have left comments and have subscribed to the blog. I’m so happy to be able to share my lifestyle with you all.

Today’s recipe it’s really easy to prepare, it will only take you 15 minutes to make it, and just like all the other recipes it’s really delicious:

Shrimps over Lime Guacamole!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 12 big shrimps
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 romaine lettuce
  • Avocado oil
  • The juice of one lime
  • 1 sliced lime
  • pink peppercorns
  • ½ ground ginger teaspoon
  • ice cubes

PREPARATION

Cook the shrimp in salted water until they rise to the surface and you see them pink. Immediately immerse them in iced water so they do not fall apart. Leave them 5 to 10 minutes.
Peel the shrimp (just leave the tail). Place them on paper towels to absorb all the water.
Peel avocados and smash them with a fork.
Put them in a bowl and add salt, lime juice, onion and ginger.
Wash the lettuce leaves one by one. Drain.
Serve the guacamole over the lettuce leaves, then put the shrimps over the guacamole. Pour a little avocado oil (Mevi Oil is the best one!) and sprinkle with pink pepper.
Serve and enjoy!

I hope you enjoy it!

Baked Eggs in Avocado

Miss Mevi's favorite breakfast! Baked eggs in avocado!Hello to all of you!

Want to have a full of omega-3s in your breakfast? Try baking eggs in an avocado. Beyond the heart-healthy fatty acids and high protein count, this low-sugar and fiber-filled breakfast will kick off your day on a healthy high note.

If you’re always rushing in the morning, you’ll be glad to learn this recipe requires just a few ingredients and nearly no prep time. Ready to get cooking?

INGREDIENTS

2 ripe avocados
4 fresh eggs
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon chopped chives

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Slice the avocados in half, and take out the pit. Scoop out about two tablespoons of flesh from the center of the avocado, just enough so the egg will fit snugly in the center.
Place the avocados in a small baking dish. Do your best to make sure they fit tightly.
Crack an egg into each avocado half. Try your best to crack the yolk in first, then let the egg whites spill in to fill up the rest of the shell.
Place in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Cooking time will depend on the size of your eggs and avocados. Just make sure the egg whites have enough time to set.
Remove from oven, then season with pepper, chives, and garnish of your choice. Enjoy!

NOTES

This recipe calls for chopped chives, but feel free to serve with whatever fresh herbs or other toppings you have available. A tablespoon of salsa or a little hot sauce would offer a nice hit of spice.

Until the next time!

Avocado Mousse

Miss Mevi shares this easy Avocado Mousse recipeHello everyone!

I always try to prepare the dinner including some delicious desserts for husband and my baby. Today I’d like to share with you a very simple recipe that just found, it will only take you 10 minutes to complete.

This recipe is wonderfully versatile. It’s great for summer Lunches and Picnics, as you can make a big bowl and let everyone dig in. Or it can make a really pretty starter. The smoked salmon parcels tied with chives are my favorite! The eggs make the mix lighter if you want a “proper” mousse texture, however without the eggs you still get a lovely light pate texture. In the images I haven’t used eggs but I have tried it and it’s lovely. You can see the mousse texture here on the original recipe!

Serves 4-5 as a starter

INGREDIENTS

  • Two Large Avocados
  • 1 Lime (zest and 1/2 juice)
  • 100g Cream Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2tsp Gelatine Powder
  • 1 Egg White (optional)

PREPARATION

Scoop the flesh out of the Avocados and add to a blender (or food processor) with the Lime zest and juice and puree until very smooth.

Then add the Cream Cheese and seasoning and blend again until totally incorporated.
Put two tbsp of water in a heatproof bowl and sprinkle the Gelatine over the top. Allow to stand for 2 mins until it goes spongie. Then place the bowl over water in a pan (creating a bain-marie) and whisk until completely dissolved.
Allow to cool and then add to the avocado mixture and combine throughly.

Hope you enjoy it. Please suscribe to my blog so you can notice whenever I share content first than no one.

Until the next one!
