About Eathical’s The Mexican Blend

Start your Eathical’s Margaritas with a good shot of tequila then get creative and mix em up with any fruit like strawberry, guava, mango, pineapple, watermelon, or just go citrus with lime, lemon or oranges.

Now that you’re relaxed –  pull out a bottle (or packet) of Eathical Mexican Blend and start creating some Mexican-inspired dishes.

This spice blend is a precise mix of cilantro, chipotle, ancho chilies, paprika, onions, garlic, and sea salt. Use for seasoning Taco fillings, Chili, and Moles. Use in stews, rice dishes and pretty much anything and everything, seriously this is a multi-regional Mexican blend.

Cocina Mexicana! Mexican food, the sheer variety of regional foods in Mexico is a culinary journey of its own. Ingredients that are natural to the various regions include corn, beans, chilies, chocolates. Add the European influences and the arrival of herbs and spices, milk and cheeses, pastries and breads, and of course beer, and you may have a slight inkling as to what Mexican cuisines entail. Mexico has a lot to offer for those in the know.

I think, the land, the air, the water, the language and the music all add to the divine experience of eating Mexican. Although the food cannot be as authentic as it is in Mexico, you can recreate many dishes with this spice blend.

Mexicans eat five or six meals a day.

  • A sweet treat at breakfast with a cup of strong milky coffee can start the morning off beautifully.
  • Almuerzo – second breakfast, or more brunch consists of eggs topped with tomatoes and chilies, or mixed with spices or served with sausages like chorizos, and of course the ever-present cilantro and limes.
  • The next meal is Comida corrida. Lunch includes many small courses – crispy bits of meat to dip into salsas, tortilla chips and guacamole.
  • After the dip portion comes the broth Sopa (soup) which can range from light consommés, to meat and root vegetables and tomatoey crispy tortilla soups.
  • Sopa Seca (dry soup) comes next and this is more the pasta or rice dish, which is cooked in broths with meat and vegetables and sometimes covered in cheeses and baked.
  • Then comes the meat dish, what we would call the entrée. This is usually a serving of meat, poultry, or seafood accompanied with two vegetables a bowl of beans and a stack of warm tortillas and a small bowl of salsa.
  • Finally, fruit will be served. 

Afternoon tea (after a long siesta) starts at 2pm and here you can opt for coffee and a pastry, or a taco or two.

Cena (dinner), could be a snack, lunch leftovers, or a long sit-down dinner that lasts until the early hours. Expect to enjoy one-pot delights of meat and vegetables slow cooked for hours, or tacos, tortillas, tostadas and any other handheld foods.

Enjoy sizzling Mexico with the help of The Mexican Blend.
