Roasted Squash Tacos with Toasted Chile Peanut Salsa

On a taco-eating trip to Baja California, I became completely obsesed with the tostadas at La Guerrerense. And every tostada was even better when topped with their salsa; it's a toasted garlic and peanut salsa that was hot, smoky, crunchy —  pretty much it was instant love.

Charred Asparagus With Requeson And Mexican Dukkah

In this super simple salad, pencil-thin asparagus are charred on a grill then tossed with a quick lime and olive oil combo. The twist I added was making a twist on Egyptian dukkah (a seed-herb-nut mix used for dipping bread) and used classic Mexican ingredients like cumin, Mexican oregano, pistachios, and almonds. The dish then gets finished with the best requeson (ie ricotta) you can find and a few nasturtium leaves.
