Chile Colorado translates to reddened chile and that is exactly what you think of when you hear this dish. A beautiful red chile sauce is made to accompany tender chunks of pork and left to simmer for the deepest, most delicious flavor infusion. The guajillo peppers used in this sauce create that beautiful red color while the ancho peppers help with the depth of flavor. Don’t be intimidated by the use of dried peppers, they truly are easy to work with and you can use them in so many recipes!CONTINUE READING
This Carne Al Pastor will blow your mind! It is full of flavor and absolutely delicious. The beautiful thing about this recipe is that you can choose to be fancy and make it trompo style, as shown here, or you can simply cook it on the stove. Let’s be real though, if you’re taking the time to make this meal and really want to entertain, you MUST stack it and cook it trompo style. I’ll be honest, the satisfaction of cooking that big o stack of meat and presenting it in all its glory is the best. Talk about a way to impress!CONTINUE READING
These Carne Asada Meatballs have all the flavor of traditional carne asada rolled up into a meatball. Carne asada will forever bring back memories of grilling with the family and an abundance of food like you can’t even imagine. It was as if we were going to be feeding a whole army of people! That is one thing that about these carne asada meals, everyone was invited regardless of what day it was. You always made enough food “just in case someone comes over”. Hey, the more food the more leftovers and it just meant I was going to eat so dang good for at least a couple of days!CONTINUE READING
Traditional arroz con pollo has a special place in my heart, (and a reserved spot in my belly!). It’s a dish I grew up eating all the time and I never got tired of it. My mom would always make the best arroz con pollo using bone-in chicken thighs or drumsticks or a combination of both. The rice absorbed all of the flavor from cooking the chicken in the same pan and it was divine! Same goes for this cauliflower rice version.CONTINUE READING
This is not your traditional steak and potatoes. Bistec con Papas, or Mexican Steak and Potatoes, is full of flavor thanks to it getting cooked in a delicious spicy sauce. This is Mexican comfort food for sure!
Bistec con papas is one of those dishes that brings back all the memories. It reminds me of Sundays at my grandma’s when she made this with homemade tortillas, (food freedom!). It also reminds me of many meals at home with my parents and I can picture my mami roasting the veggies for the sauce. This recipe is incredibly simple yet bursting with flavor thanks to that sauce.CONTINUE READING
These Salsa Verde Wings will rock your socks off! The wings are coated with my delicious salsa verde and are tangy and a little spicy. Perfect for entertaining, football season, or any time you’re craving wings.
My love for salsa verde is serious. The tanginess from the tomatillos with the spiciness from the jalapenos is the perfect combination. There are not a lot of things I won’t put salsa verde on. Which is when I got the idea of making wings with it I knew I had to give it a try. Thank goodness I did because WOW. These wings are so good and are the perfect appetizer. Just trust me, you need these in your life. Oh and did I mention they’re Whole30 compliant?!CONTINUE READING
Shrimp ceviche is a delicious and refreshing dish that is perfect on a hot summer day. Made with fresh shrimp, or seafood of choice, peppers, onions, and lots of lime juice, this ceviche is so satisfying. Drizzle a little hot sauce on top for an extra kick, you will not be disappointed!
Every time I make ceviche I am reminded of how delicious and fresh it is. Seriously every time I’m like, “OK! This is SO dang good!”, and proceed to pretty much never stop eating it. Growing up we had ceviche tostadas, or ate it with tortilla chips like a dip, and it was one of the dishes I looked forward to the most. If there is one thing you need to know about me it’s the fact that I LOVE limes, all citrus really, and the tartness of all the lime juice in this is the absolute best!CONTINUE READING
Chorizo con papas is hands down one of the easiest and most delicious meals. This is then stuffed into bell peppers for a whole new stuffed pepper experience. These are the perfect meal for any time of the day. Throw a fried egg on top or add scrambled eggs to the chorizo con papas for breakfast. Serve them with side of rice or veggies for full meal. Throw some cheese on top, add some sour cream and salsa for some flavor.CONTINUE READING
Did you know Shepherd’s Pie, as most of us know it, is probably actually Cottage Pie? The difference is that traditional Shepherd’s Pie is made with ground lamb and Cottage Pie is made with ground beef. Now you know :).
Nothing screams comfort food like meat and potatoes, am I right or am I right? That is why this Cottage Pie is always a hit with the hubs, or anyone for that matter. A mixture of ground beef, vegetables, herbs and spices, all topped with creamy and delicious mashed potatoes. Seriously can’t ask for a healthier hearty meal.CONTINUE READING
This chicken tinga is spicy, flavorful, and super easy. Great for meal prep and batch cooking. It is perfect for salads, tacos, tostadas, and more!
Growing up my tia, (aunt), would make chicken tinga tostadas for almost every gathering. Family joked about how much she made it and every time she had us over people would say, “I bet she made tinga again!”. Yes, probably so. However, I was ALWAYS ready for some of her chicken tinga. Spicy shredded chicken full of tons of flavor on top of a crispy tostada with ALL the toppings. If you’re doing Whole30, so sorry for the temptation but it is the perfect food freedom meal. You’re not missing out though. This makes for the perfect chicken tinga salad or lettuce “tacos”. Trust me when I say this chicken is FLAVOR TOWN!CONTINUE READING
