Latin Twist: Tapas para las Fiestas Navideñas–Tapas for Holiday Parties!

There’s a thrill to rediscovering a recipe you made and enjoyed a long time ago. This is the case for me with panuchos. I first “discovered” them in Mexico in 2004. Well, eight years later, I realize how much I’ve missed them…and want to share them with you!
Now you know I’m the first to say something is simple when it’s simple; this is not so simple but, mis queridos amigos, I promise it is worth the work! This time of year we are either going to or hosting fiestas. Why not try something unique? Panuchos—small bites of chicken topped with orange juice, and brown sugar-sweetened sautéed red onions—are festive! (And, wow, so delicious!) I first tried them in Mexico City (or maybe even Cuernavaca?!), but they hail principally from the Yucatán region.
Another reason they’re fun to bring or serve at a party is that they don’t need to be warm; room temperature is just fine! Perfect with a Sancerre (my favorite these days…) or an ice-cold Negra Modelo (always a favorite!), or a festive cocktail—or apple cider, these are sure to be a hit! ¡Buen provecho! Enjoy!
