Delicious Indian and Mexican fusion recipes Delicious Indian and Mexican fusion recipes that are easier, healthier and made from local ingredients. Check out the samosadillas, chicken tandoori tacos, stuffed jalapenos, avocado relish and so much more. Serves 4In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is seen as the day to celebrate Mexican food, culture, music and traditions.

Mexican food is very popular here and even more so among us Indian Americans. It is a match made in heaven for the Indian palate with its use of spices, chili peppers, cilantro, onions and tomatoes. Don’t you think that the Pico de gallo is just like the Indian koshimbir or kachumber ?

Little surprise then that over the years my Mexican cooking has morphed into an Indo Mexican cuisine which my family loves. So I tried various fusion ideas blending Indian and Mexican cookery and they have been popular with our friends and family. In true Indfused style, they are healthier and easy to make and use local ingredients.

The Broiled Stuffed Indo Mexican Jalapenos that originated as a leftover makeover in our home, is now a sought after appetizer.

My favorite dish to order at a Mexican restaurant is the chili rellenos but often it comes dripping in oil. So I started making these Chili relleno bocados that have satisfied my craving. They are so easy to make too!

And who does not love avocados? In our home, it has become a necessity 🙂 This Avocado Relish is a big hit at parties. I substitute grapes for the cranberries in the summer time.
