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

Throw some cheese on top, add some sour cream and salsa for some flavor.CONTINUE READING

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
Easy to make homemade chorizo recipe. Simple ingredients make this Mexican sausage flavorful with a combination of spices and ground meat of choice. Perfect with eggs for breakfast or as a taco filling!
Some people always have bacon on hand for breakfast or other dishes but chorizo is something that is always present in my fridge. Chorizo is like the Italian sausage of Mexicans. Just like Italian sausage adds amazing flavor to your pasta sauce instead of just using ground beef, Chorizo makes for the most delicious ground beef substitute!CONTINUE READING

Picadillo is one of those super simple dishes that is great for a weeknight meal, especially when you want to have a meal ready at the table quickly. I make it slightly quicker by boiling the carrots and potatoes separately so these are ready by the time the ground beef is cooked.CONTINUE READING
