I’ve always liked speed and when I was a kid I wanted to be a race car driver, although my life took me in quite a different direction my love for driving and watching races only gets stronger every year. At home we try to watch all the races but some of them really become an event, we have friends over and get together either at our house or at my parent’s house.
Watching the races has become even more special because now I get to share it with my dad and with my little guy who inherited our love for speed. Watching the races together has become a family tradition that really brings us together and food is an important part of this tradition.
We use race day as an excuse to experiment in the kitchen and make new versions of some of our childhood favorite foods. For this race watching party I got inspired in the tostadas I used to eat back in Guatemala and created topped a traditional guacamole tostada with some spicy chipotle shrimp and then drizzled with a fresh cilantro lime crema which I actually made with yogurt to keep the calories down.
