I've come up with some pretty bomb recipes that are easy and delicious, I don't have them written down or anything but I'm sure I can remember. The amounts of ingredients is never the same because I'm usually making food for different numbers of people, I usually eye-ball it but for the reader's sake I'll include some quantity for a decent portion.
Mango Guacamole (wacamole canadiense)
3 ripe avocados
1 clove of garlic minced
a few pinches of salt (just keep adding and tasting, I think it's better to oversalt a little than to undersalt, seasoning is key)
a couple shakes of pepper
2 teaspoons of grated ginger (keep your ginger frozen and it grates like parmesan reggiano)
1 ripe mango cubed (There a few ways to cut these, watch some videos on youtube or some shit)
1 A whole lotta love
Mix the avo, garlic, salt, pepper, ginger and mash the fuck out of it with a fork. Taste the shit constantly as you add more salt and pepper, once you jizz in your pants you know you have the right amount of salt. Once you're happy with the consistency of your guac just add that mango and lovingly fold it in.
My Salsa (Also known as chronic ass salsa)
1 Red Onion finely chopped
4 Italian tomatos chopped
Handful of cilantro/coriander minced to fuck
Juice of 1 large lime
Juice of half an orange
Another easy ass but delicious recipe, just add all that shit together and salt until it's chronic, salsa takes more salt than you'd think; be generous, use sea salt, be loving and sprinkle it over with your fingers. The type and amount of hot peppers you decide to use depends on your love for spice. If you're a complete pussy use a bell pepper or some dumb shit. If you're sexy as fuck, use habanero, mince that shit finely.
On cooking roasts:
I cooked a mean ass pork roast the other week in LA. I've never done pork roast but this seemed like a logical way to do it:
Covered animal meat with olive oil, minced garlic (also cut some slits where I jammed crushed cloves in that puppy), rosemary, salt, pepper. With the amounts; just do as much as you think looks tasty. Sear it in a pan on high high heat, each side should be brown and crispy. Turn on the grill on one side. Put that animal on the opposite side of the grill. Go swim and get drunk off tequila for a couple hours. Check up on that bitch, if the juice is clear; dig in.
This recipe is flexible, you don't need to use pork, you don't need to use rosemary. It's just showing that with simple, tasty ingredients and the right method you don't need to do a lot of work. Searing meat and then cooking on a low heat is a guaranteed way to obtain amazing texture, moisture and flavour. Cooking is easy, don't be a dummy.
On cooking vegetables:
Olive oil, salt, pepper, fire. Bell peppers, don't even cut them, just chuck em on. Red onions halved or quartered, chuck em on. Eggplant.
If you're cooking them in a pan, use butter and balsamic vinegar once it's going hot, that shit's delicious.
Just remember to love every step of the way, that is the legit way to make mean ass comida.
