Hi...

Hi everyone, I am from México and live in Monterrey, close to the border to Texas.


I have been reading a lot of interesting things on this site and I really love it. I have a small business from home, I bake salty pies for small reunions, gatherings, or any type of event, etc. and I am always looking for new ideas.


I love bread so I hit the jackpot when I found this wonderful site, and I have already learned quite a few things here.


Thank you for sharing your ideas, recipes, tips and techniques with all of us.


Greetings from Nexico...

As Audra says, this is a great site. Welcome!


What are "salty pies"?

I make different kinds like chicken for example, or tuna, ham and cheese, spinach, etc. I call them salty pies because they are not sweet like an apple pie for instance.


I will try to upload a picture later.

I see. What you call "salty" I think of as "savory". Thanks for letting me know.

You wouldn't feel like posting a recipe for one of your pies, would you?  I'm always looking for something new to cook for my family, and your pies sound really good!

Welcome, Mexican Cook!


I live in Austin and have been to Monterrey many times.  Please post a recipe for your pies, I would love to try them.  Are they like empanadas? 


I don't know if we have any other bakers from Mexico on here.  I love reading about bakers from the rest of the world and their issues with ingredients, cooking times, etc.


Spanish nerd: "salado" sometimes translates to savory, which it does here.  salty pie is pastel de sal, which doesn't sound nearly as tasty.

Thanks Pamela and Bread Maiden for the information on "salty" and "savory", now I can call them correctly. I certainly will post the "dough" recipe for the pies and also some different stuffings "relleno". Where should I post the recipes? If you could give me advice on this.

I LOVE relleno's! I have difficulty finding the peppers here, so when I can I get a case box of them and go ahead and stuff them for the freezer. Nothin' like the whole house smelling like hot roasting chili pepper's for a few days.
