Here at Macayo’s, we’ve been proudly serving up our tried-and-true family recipes for 70 years, but we recently decided to add a few new dishes to our menu to spice things up a little. Specifically, there are five new menu items that we can’t wait to tell you about! Made with only the freshest of ingredients, these are some of the best Mexican recipes we’ve ever come up with. Of course, we don’t want you to just take our word for it; we invite you to stop by and give any (or all!) of these new menu items a try for yourself.
Shrimp and Chorizo Taquitos
Most people wouldn’t thnk to combine the spicy flavor of Mexican chorizo with the more subtle flavor and crunch of fresh shrimp, but we did! If you love taquitos, you’ll love this new twist on a traditional recipe. The crispiness of the taquito goes amazingly with the flavors of chorizo and shrimp, along with other fresh ingredients.
Tinga Chicken Tacos
Never heard of tinga chicken? It’s a very popular dish that originated in Mexico but has made is way across the border in a big way. Essentially, tinga chicken refers to cooked, shredded chicken in a tomato and chili chipotle sauce. For this dish, we whip up a batch of delicious, smoky, and spicy tinga chicken. But we don’t stop there; we finish it off in a tortilla and serve it up to you in taco form for a taste that’s out of this world.
Pollo Blanco Burro
Our Mexican pollo blanco burro is stuffed with cooked, shredded chicken, black beans, rice, baja sauce, and jack cheese. We pile all that onto a 13-inch tortilla, roll it up burrito style, and get it all nice, cooked, and crispy in the oven before cutting in half at a 45-degree angle and serving it up with a side of cabbage pico and tomatillo salsa. The combination of flavors in this dish is absolutely incredible and words don’t do it justice; you really need to try it for yourself!
Green Chile Pork Stew
Looking to try something a little heartier? If so, then the delicious flavors of pork and green chile will appeal to you in this dish, which incorporates the best cuts of pork butt, some amazing braising spices, tomatillo salsa, and fresh-grown poblano peppers for a spicy, smoky flavor. The next time you’re looking for a Mexican dinner recipe that’s simple yet incredibly flavorful, be sure to keep our new green chile pork stew in mind.
