I made Queso Flameado for the first time and wanted to share a photo for our class blog. I didn’t measure anything so I don’t have a real recipe, but it was really easy to make. Bake Oaxaca cheese with some shredded cheese for about 20 minutes and top with cooked chorizo. It tasted just like what I usually order from Rosario’s Mexican Cafe Y Cantina in Southtown.
1 cup flour
¾ cup milk
½ cup sugar
1 stick margarine
1 can sliced peaches
Melt margarine. Mix margarine, flour, milk, and sugar and pour dish (a 9- to 12-inch casserole dish works well).
Pour peaches and pour juice evenly into mix.
Cook 45 minutes at 350 degrees. May require longer depending on oven.
The ring-shaped Rosca de Reyes is a sweet round cake or oval shaped Mexican bread decorated with slices of candied fruit to celebrate the three kings. The celebration of Epiphany to enjoy the Rosca de Reyes is a Mexican tradition that takes place 12 days after Christmas. For family reunions, Epiphany Day or the appearance of the Wise Men or Magi Kings: Balthazar, Melchior and Caspar is normally held on January sixth in the evening. This tradition of eating together and sharing a Rosca de Reyes with hot chocolate is made as a snack at an early hour in the late evening, so that children are present and can participate in the tradition of enjoying and sharing a slice of Rosca de Reyes. It is important when you cut a slice, that on both sides of the rosca the figure of the infant Jesus (plastic doll symbolizing Jesus newborn) does not appear. It is said that the person who finds the baby Jesus, should host a party on Candlemas Day on February second. It is considered to have good luck and that you are fortunate if you find the baby Jesus in your rosca. At Candlemas, guests from the original Rosca de Reyes expect to regroup to eat tamales and Mexican appetizers at the party.
