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
If you like traditional spinach artichoke dip then you’re going to love this spin on the classic! This Spinach Poblano Dip is full of flavor and poblano peppers are subbed for the artichoke for an extra little something. If you’re not familiar with poblano peppers don’t even worry about it! They are mild in flavor and in spice. Think of them as more sophisticated bell peppers. The flavors of the poblano pepper really come out when the peppers are cooked, either sauteed or roasted. You can absolutely roast the peppers for this recipe but I am all about convenience and like to saute them with the rest of the veggies to make it quick and easy. To be on the safe side when working with poblanos just take out the seeds and veins to ensure the dip is not spicy. However, if you’re like me and like the spice then add on a jalepeno for an extra kick. OOOOH man, it’s a darn good kind of kick!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
Looking for something sweet and spicy to put on tacos, on grilled chicken, or just to munch on?? Look no further! This Mango Salsa is perfect for the summer heat and adds so much flavor to any grilled food. It’s not traditional, it’s something different but so delicious you won’t be able to stop eating it!
When I think about summer I think of grilled meals, frozen margaritas, pool time, and this delicious mango salsa. I love making a batch of this to take the pool and eat with some tortilla chips. It is also divine on top of grilled chicken breast or grilled shrimp tacos. There’s really nothing like a sweet and savory mix with a little added heat. Another great thing about this recipe? It is so incredibly easy and quick to put together for a last minute gathering, potluck, or snack!CONTINUE READING

Thai food is always so full of flavor and exotic. Let’s be honest, there is no cuisine my little taste buds don’t like. However, Thai cuisine involves an insane amount of flavor, spices, fun ingredients, and perfect spice. Red curry paste is incredibly versatile and can be used for so many great dishes. It adds the perfect flavor and color to this soup and you can use the rest of the paste for curries, stews, noodle bowls… the possibilities are endless!CONTINUE READING
