Go-to meals are burritos, fajitas, breakfast tacos, Migas, Huevos Rancheros and many more. Use liberally and don’t be shy to explore it’s versatility!
Ingredient Fun Fact: Cumin is the standout in this rub! Originating from the Middle East in the Irano-Turanian region, it has been used as a spice, a currency, and even as an element preserving mummies dating back 4000 years in Egypt! Cumin made its way into Central America during the European Colonization by way of the Spanish and Portuguese settlers. This spice has a warm, earthy flavor and aroma with a bit of both sweetness and bitterness backed a distinctive nutty, peppery flavour.
Name: Mexicue = Mexican + BBQ. It’s as simple as that. Over the years, these two cuisines have fused together unique spices, techniques of cooking and generations of recipes. If you ever get to travel around Texas and visit roadside smokehouses, food trucks or, even better, are invited into the la cocina, you will see where we got the inspiration for Mexicue.
