Mexican Herbs to Include In Your Garden

By Shelley Iverson 01 Jun, 2022

Have you ever wondered what makes authentic Mexican Food the best? The answer is the spices and herbs used in traditional Mexican dishes. At Garibaldi's, we use recipes passed down to us. The recipes all include fresh ingredients and a few things like cilantro, onions, lime, salsas, and more that make everything you take a bite of amazing. Below is some inspiration to spice up your garden. Why have fresh herbs versus the kind in a container? It is important to remember what you like about your food when you use fresh-picked ingredients and take pride in knowing you not only made your dish but you created something using ingredients that you grew! It also includes all of the components of the plant and is not dried so you won’t miss out on a lot of flavors you do when you used dried spices. It is totally worth it to give a shot at growing some of your own spices. Cilantro Cilantro is a major component of Mexican dishes. It is a staple in other cuisines as well, so an abundance on hand is always a good idea. When you are making any dishes, soups or other meals, cilantro can be added in a few different ways. Chop up a bunch of leaves and add them on top of your dishes as a garnish or add an abundance on your tacos with onions and fresh squeezed lime for great flavor. Throw a handful in your salsa for an amazing effect. Cilantro is an important Mexican herb that is a must have when making authentic dishes. Mexican Oregano Mexican Oregano is a staple among many authentic Mexican Dishes. Although it seems like regular oregano might do the trick, Mexican oregano has a different almost floral flavor. It is native plant from Mexico where regular Oregano is Mediterranean. Mexican Oregano is in many dishes, used in many sauces and rounds out the flavor you are always trying for when cooking. Meat dishes, rice, beans, and sauces tend to call for oregano so make sure to keep some Mexican oregano on hand so your dishes are always complete! Other Herbs and Spices Thyme and parsley are other herbs that can complement your cooking. Every spice and herb you use will affect the aroma, taste, and how the spiciness and other dimensions of flavor might turn out. Thyme is used in some dishes like birria and mole. Parsley can add flavor to salsas and add color as a garnish. Mexican herbs all play an important role in how the food turns out. Come to Garibaldi's to let us show you amazing authentic food using the best fresh ingredients.

The Perfect Margaritas

By Shelley Iverson 25 Apr, 2022

There is nothing better than enjoying a smooth flavorful margarita along with chips and salsa. Whether you are on a date, with your friends, or out for a special occasion you can never go wrong with margaritas. The best margaritas only have the best ingredients like fresh juice, great tequila, and triple sec. Below is the scoop on how the best margaritas are made. Ingredients: To enjoy the best margarita, you have to consider the ingredients. This usually involves a few fresh ingredients. Fresh is the keyword. Freshly squeezed lime juice, simple syrup, tequila, and triple sec. Some might include a splash of orange juice or sprite for a burst of extra flavor as well. This is optional. Recipe: 3 oz Tequila (Silver or Blanco) Fresh lime juice 1 oz simple syrup .5 oz triple sec Salt for rim Fruit for garnish Soda and orange juice optional Tequila: One distinguishing flavor factor is tequila . There are different types of tequila, like silver and gold. They are aged differently giving different flavors, colors, and aromas. Tequila gold is aged in barrels which gives it the “gold” color. There are also different variations on how long the tequila is aged which makes up many of the brands, types, and flavors of tequila you might see or know about. Tequila Blanco and clear silver tequila are most commonly used for margaritas but can be substituted depending on taste preferences. A Twist on the Classic: A classic margarita usually involves lime flavor, a margarita glass, ice, and a rim garnished with salt. You might be in love with a classic margarita but there are many more options that are equally as delicious! Try a classic margarita blended instead of on the rocks. This makes it more of a slushie texture. Instead of salt, try sugar on the rim. More ways to enjoy a margarita are flavors like mango, strawberry, and other fruity influences. Some enjoy a small beer added to a margarita. It is an interesting combination that compliments flavors well and belongs together. This is called a CoronaRita. Between flavors, styles of ice, rims, and adding small beers, the possibilities for margaritas are endless. If you aren’t keen on margaritas, daiquiris are a sister to margaritas. They are like margaritas but made with rum instead. You choose your flavors and they usually come blended. Come to Garibaldis to enjoy your favorite Mexican food paired with a perfect margarita, your way.

Authentic Mexican Food Experience

By Shelley Iverson 21 Oct, 2021

At Garibaldis, food is more than food, it is an experience. With the heritage, history and flavor, it is much more than amazing food. With influences from Spain, Aztec and Mayan among others the food became an exhibit of the cultures. Factors include music, colors, native foods, and family. At Garibaldis , our recipes include this passion, history and heritage. Traditional Mexican Foods: Some traditional Mexican foods that have a major history are corn and beans. Tortillas are derived from corn and are often eaten with beans. Later, chocolate, poultry, and many spices were added throughout history when other cultures came and added some different character. Corn: Corn is arguably one of the most important parts of the Mexican food experience. Throughout time, corn was domesticated from grass and was made into components of almost every meal. Some important corn dishes are tortillas, tamales, and elote. There is a special drink called Atole that is made from corn and sweetened to make a delicious holiday drink. It isn’t just about corn either, it is also about tradition, family recipes, and what the corn means. To many, it is memories, holidays, and more than a food staple. Beans: Beans are another important part of the Mexican food experience. Beans are not expensive and are grown in Mexico, so they are widely available. Beans are full of protein and can be prepared in many ways to add flavor and heartiness to your dishes. Like corn, they are a part of the wonderful experience. Celebrations : In Mexico, there are many celebrations and holidays that food is a part of the experience. These traditions have to do with the cultures and religions. Most of Mexico is Christian, so Christian holidays have a role in family gatherings and different dishes. For example, some holidays include making sweet breads for special occasions. Christmas: Some dishes that may play a role in Christmas celebrations are tamales, chicken pozole verde, and marranitos. After Christmas, there is a holiday called Dia de Reyes, which celebrates the three wise men. Sweet bread formed like a wreath is baked to celebrate this day. In the bread is a figurine of Jesus that whoever gets it must throw the next celebration, candlemas. Dia de los Muertos: For this holiday, sweet bread is made. It is a large tradition to celebrate the loved ones of deceased family, friends and others. To commemorate them, the living might make the dead's favorite dish, meal or leave them a treat.
