Mexican food is extremely popular. People routinely dine out at Mexican-style fast food, local favorite or fine dining restaurants. But what if you could make those dishes yourself? With iCooking Mexican Cuisine, developed by Apps of All Nations, LLC you’ll be able to create all the dishes you love at home.
iCooking Mexican Cuisine is an easy app to use. Recipes are sorted in categories – you can see all at once, or view by types of dishes (starters and vegetables, fish and eggs, meat, poultry, desserts and drinks). You can sort through the list, select favorite recipes and also add your own recipes to the app. Open a particular recipe and you’ll see a photo of the completed dish, an ingredient list, preparation instructions and by tapping “more”, you can add or remove it as a favorite, or even email it to a friend.
Having a recipe app on your phone allows you to have your ingredient list and prep time available at any time. You can be standing in the grocery store and wonder if you have time to make guacamole from scratch and know what you need to buy as well as how long it would take. With 52 recipes in total, iCooking Mexican Cuisine offers a range of enticing recipe options, without being overwhelming.
One of my favorite Mexican dishes is fajitas. I usually get chicken but occasionally beef or even shrimp, so how could I resist trying this dish myself? The ingredients are colorful (part of the appeal of this dish) – as well as being good for you. I purchased my peppers, onion, zucchini, tomato and spices using the ingredients list in the app, and I was ready to cook. I cooked it all in an iron skillet and served it with rice, guacamole and Pico de Gallo (this recipe is on the app as well). You could wrap all this up in tortillas, but I have always enjoyed it without them. I did serve it with tortilla chips, but that almost goes without saying. It turned out great, and now that I have the basic recipe, I can branch out and add other meats or maybe just have vegetarian fajitas.
While a solid app, there are a number of ways to improve iCooking Mexican Cuisine. Although not strictly a dish – a recipe for margaritas would have been a worthy inclusion. In any case, mastering all of the 52 recipes would take a while, and for just $0.99 – one can’t complain. One feature I would like to see in both this app, and all of the iCooking apps, is the ability to select ingredients from recipes and to create a grocery list. It’s not a critical addition, but it would be handy in the supermarket.
Say goodbye to dining out – connect with your family and take back the kitchen. With apps like iCooking Mexican Cuisine, you can learn to cook dishes that are both nutritionally sound and taste good. And for such a low price, that’s not such a bad deal.
iCooking Mexican Cuisine is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch and requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later.
