To make chipotle mayo for burgers, you’ll need a couple of spices, a lime, mayo, and a can of chipotles in adobo sauce.

Depending on how thick you want your sauce, and the tangy taste of lime juice, only add the lime juice sparingly until you’re happy with the consistency and taste.

Chipotle mayo is a great addition to your homemade burgers. You can add complimenting flavors to your burger, along with your chipotle mayo.

  • jack cheese
  • fresh red onions
  • avocado
  • cheddar cheese
  • tomatoes
  • lettuce
  • pineapple slices

To use your chipotle mayo on your burger, add it to where you would normally place your regular mayonnaise. Typically the chipotle mayonnaise would be placed on the bun, and then a layer of lettuce overtop. Your burger and the rest of the condiments would follow after to create your chipotle mayo burger.

Cilantro Lime Coleslaw Recipe No Mayo

Cilantro lime coleslaw recipe made without using mayonnaise is perfect for making tacos with. Typically coleslaw for tacos has a vinegar-lime base for the coleslaw making the taco tangy and very flavorful. You can use this cilantro lime coleslaw with no mayo on beef tacos, vegetarian tacos, or shrimp tacos.

Cilantro Lime Coleslaw Recipe No Mayo

The cabbage used in the coleslaw recipe can be found in one of the premade coleslaws that you’ll find in a bag in the grocery store. The coleslaw should already have sliced carrots in the coleslaw so you won’t need to add any. I find that purchasing this coleslaw is much cheaper and easier than cutting up multiple cabbage and having most of it go to waste. The coleslaw in a bag should last 3-4 days in the fridge, so that will give you enough time to use most of it up.

The best use of this Mexican slaw is for adding it to shrimp tacos. The coleslaw with cilantro lime vinaigrette goes nicely with the shrimp giving it a hint of lime flavor. It’s not too overpowering and leaves you with a fresh taste in your mouth. You can also try this citrus slaw for on top of fish tacos! The

Why does citrus go well with fish?

Fish is a salty food, and once cooked, it’s skin forms a caramelizing flavor creating a sweet taste. When you add in citrus – sour flavor, you’re getting a combination of salt, sweet and sour all at once. Citrus goes well with fish because it compliments the other flavorings and balances them out.

You can make this quick lime and cilantro slaw in only 5 minutes. Prepare it just before you’re ready to serve your tacos so your coleslaw doesn’t get soggy. I recommend serving it with some sort of salsa – try our watermelon and pineapple salsa if you’re up for a challenge!

  • Place the crepe on a plate you plan to serve it on. It's best if you don't stack your done crepes. Put them on different plates so they are easy to fill and you wont risk tearing them. Or put parchment paper in between them if you don't want to use that many plates.

What is the difference between a pancake and a crepe?

A pancake using leavening agents to make it puff up. Pancakes are quite a dense food to eat, therefore they are fairly filling. Crepes do not use any leavening agents. The batter is very thin, unlike pancake batter which is a thick batter. Crepes are thin after they are cooked, making them not very filling. They are not a very sweet food, so you can top them with just about anything. There are savory or sweet crepes, whereas for pancakes there are only sweet toppings for them.

What do crepes taste like?

Crepes taste like a neutral food, there isn’t that much flavor to them, other than a hint of egg flavor. The flavor for a crepe comes from the sauce it’s served with. You can serve crepes with countless sauces like hazelnut spread, chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce, etc.

Mini Lemon Tarts with Pie Crust

As an Amazon Affiliate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

Pie crust is an excellent substitute of tart crust because it’s buttery and flakey. Tart crust is more like a shortbread cookie, it’s harder, and doesn’t melt in your mouth like pie crust does. We will be using Pâte Sucrée as our pie crust dough for our tarts.

What is Pâte Sucrée

Pâte Sucrée is sweet French pastry crust which is traditionally used for tarts. Pâte Sucrée is a bit different than regular pie crust because you have to chill it once to let it rest before rolling, and then again after you have put your dough in your pan just before baking it. Pâte Sucrée is much more stable as a tart crust because it’s less likely to shrink and become deformed as it bakes. It’s much more reliable and keeps it shape as best it can while baking. The trick is to push the pastry into the pan to make it “enfoncer”. This means to push the dough into the sides of the pan as much as you can, and make the pastry as even as you can without getting it too thin.

How to make mini lemon tarts with pie crust

Fill your mini lemon tarts made with pie crust using lemon cream. Lemon cream is much more fuller, and less tart than using lemon curd. Lemon cream is made by making custard, and then adding cubes of butter at the end for that delicious lemon cream flavor.

Once the mini lemon tarts have been set, add a couple of raspberries on top. Face the raspberries to the base of the raspberry sits on the lemon cream, and the tip of the raspberry is facing upwards.

Add a touch of piped white chocolate ganache to the top of the tart over the raspberries. Keep your white chocolate ganache tart with raspberries in the fridge for up to 3 days.

How to make tart filling

Tart filling is made by making custard. You can fill tarts with any type of custard you like. For our mini lemon tarts with raspberries and white chocolate ganache, we are making lemon cream. To make lemon cream, first prepare the lemon zest, sugar, lemon juice and whisk in the eggs. Heat this over a double boiler until it’s thick frothy, continuously whisking the entire time to prevent the eggs from cooking. Once it’s finished cooking, strain out the lemon zest and chill for a few hours before using this to fill your mini lemon tarts made with pie crust.
