Pampered Chef: Need help for my Mexican themed show!

  1. I was wondering if anyone could help me think of an easy dessert to do with the Mole chicken pizza. We are going to have homemade salsa and guacamole also, but I just wanted to have something else that uses more prodcuts and so there could be something on the sweeter side. This is my 3rd show, 1st themed show and I want it to be good! Thanks for your help! :confused:

    Found it!

    Margarita Pie

    Crust:
    1 ¼ c finely crushed pretzels
    1/2 c butter or margarine, melted
    1/4 c sugar

    Filling:
    1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
    2 t grated lime peel
    1/4 c lime juice (approx 2 limes)
    1/4 c orange juice
    1 container (8oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed


    For crust combine all ingredients in medium bowl; press onto bottom and up side of Deep Dish Pie Plate.

    For filling, combine milk, lime peel and juices in medium bowl; fold in whipped topping. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.

    I'm going to try using the last 1/4 of filling in the EAD to try to demonstrate another tool and dress it up a bit. I'll let you know how it goes.

    How About...

    Tres Leches cake....from last season's SB. It's yummy!

    If you're going to do the margarita pie, stress that the cool whip CANNOT be "lite" or "no-fat"...otherwise it WON'T SET...no matter how long you give it...even if you freeze it...lol...trust me, I tried! (good thing for those margaritas....hehehe)

    Tres Leches Cake

    Can someone please post the recipe for Tres Leches Cake. I am having a Mexican Themed party next month and this would make a great dessert.

    I have been unable to find it in my Season's Bests and on the PC website.
    Being Canadian I can't access some of the info from the U.S. site.

    Thank you in advance.

    Tres Leches Cake Recipe

    Tres Leches Cake
    ----------------

    Ingredients:
    1 package (18.25 ounces) white cake mix

    3 eggs

    1 1/4 cups water

    1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk

    1 container (8 ounces) sour cream

    1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided

    1/4 teaspoon Pantry Korintje Cinnamon

    1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds, coarsely chopped

    1 strawberry for garnish (optional)


    Directions:
    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray Deep Dish Baker with nonstick cooking spray. Combine cake mix, eggs and water; whisk using Stainless Steel Whisk until well blended. Spoon batter into baker. Bake 35-40 minutes or until Cake Tester inserted in center comes out clean. Remove baker from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack; cool completely.

    2. Using Serrated Bread Knife, gently slice crown from top of cake to expose interior of cake. (Discard trimmings.)

    3. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine evaporated milk, sour cream, condensed milk and vanilla; whisk until well blended using Stainless Steel Whisk. Slowly pour milk mixture evenly over cake; let stand 5 minutes or until mixture is completely absorbed into cake.

    4. Spread half of the whipped topping over cake using Large Spreader; sprinkle lightly with cinnamon using Flour/Sugar Shaker. Attach open star tip to Easy Accent(R) Decorator; fill with remaining whipped topping. Pipe a decorative border over top of cake. Coarsely chop almonds using Food Chopper; sprinkle over border. If desired, create strawberry fan using Egg Slicer Plus(R); garnish cake. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until ready to serve.

    Cook's Tip: To create a strawberry fan using the Egg Slicer Plus, open the slicer and place the strawberry stem end down; slice most of the way through strawberry with the wires. Remove the strawberry from the wires and gently fan out the slices.



    To toast almonds in the microwave oven, place almonds in Small Oval Baker; microwave on HIGH 5-7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring after each 30-second interval. Cool completely.

    If you doing the Mole..its on the sweet side anyways so you might not want to do an extra sweetness. My husband and I do Ole parties all the time, with him being Spanish it makes it fun and he does all the cooking for the parties. With what your serving along with the Mole they will complement each other just fine. Are you planning on making homemade chips to go with the salsa?

  9. I am doing homemade chips and salsa. I haven't tired the mole pizza yet. Is it like a BBQ pizza?

  10. I tried the Chicken Mole Pizza and my Hispanic Guests did not like it, nor did I. I guess you have to have learn to like the taste of mole or something. I won't use it again.

    I personally didn't care for the mole pizza either, but for a dessert with an Ole flare, I would suggest to do the Strawberry Margarita Microwave Cake! It is absolutely awesome! Let me know if you need the ingredients.

    Mole pizza

    I was going to make this for my party this week because the host wanted a Mexican theme. After reading the comments about the yucky sauce, I think I will create my own Mexican pizza.

    Any comments about the sauce to use would be appreciated.

    I am making the Taco Touchdown dip, too.

    Thanks

  14. My guests actually did like the Mole pizza. I thought it was pretty good myself also. I think it is just a little different, but it did taste like a BBQ chicken pizza to me.
    I have made the mexican chocolate cream pie at my last 2 mexican shows and it has turned out well, people really like it and it is light.
    The touchdown taco dip is always a big hit!
