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

This Mexican Macaroni salad will forever bring back memories of any big Mexican party like a boda, (wedding), or quinceanera. No matter what the big gathering was you were bound to find a big roasting pan full of this macaroni salad. I would always need to have a separate plate just for this, some spaghetti verde, and Mexican Chicken Salad. If you know, you know. If you don’t, let’s change that!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 authentic red enchiladas, or enchiladas rojas? Look no further. These enchiladas are full of flavor and the sauce is definitely the star of the show!
Enchiladas rojas are on the top of my favorite foods list. Any time my mom made enchiladas it felt like a special occasion. You know how you don’t make lasagna often because it’s a bit tedious so you really only enjoy it every so often? Maybe not, maybe you’re the type to enjoy it all the time and to that I say more power to you! Anyway, enchiladas are like that. You make the sauce from scratch and take the time to dip each tortilla in the sauce before you fill it with the goods and roll it up. Why dip? Because that is the REAL way to get it done. Trust me, sauce all over those tortillas on every single inch of it is the way to go.CONTINUE READING
Mexican chicken salad is full of veggies, packed with lots of flavor, and has a little kick thanks to some pickled jalapeños. It makes for the perfect lunch or a great side for your bbq or potluck!
This Mexican chicken salad is something I grew up eating whenever we went to a quinceañera, a wedding, or any Mexican gathering or party. My favorite part of this recipe is all the veggies that are packed into this chicken. Parents, isn’t this just the thing you need? A delicious meal packed with veggies that your kids probably won’t even be bothered by because it’s just that good?! Yup, you need it in your life because trust me when I say the flavor is not sacrificed in this delicious chicken salad!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
