Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas

I’ve made enchiladas before but I’ve never tried one with green sauce.  You know, green from tomatillos and green chiles.  I’ve actually never tried tomatillos before but I really loved their tartness.  If you can’t find them, feel free to substitute green tomatoes.  (I actually added a few green tomatoes from my garden and it […]

Fathers Day Menu

It took me a couple of days to prepare this meal since my 8 week old calls the shots around our house these days but I wanted to be sure to do something special for Fathers Day. I made tequila lime chicken, cilantro lime rice (think Chipotle), black bean and corn salsa with tortilla chips […]

Grilled Fish Tacos

This is my go-to meal at any Mexican restaurant. I do not like them heavily breaded and fried but rather grilled or lightly fried. This light meal reminds me of hot Texas summers and nothing washes it all down better than a cool margarita. Grilled Fish Tacos Recipe Source: Barbeque Nation 2 teaspoons ground ancho […]

Chicken Tacos

I’ve been accused of having recipes that are too difficult and not easy enough to prepare in a weeknight. Who, moi? Well, you complained and I listened. These chicken tacos have three ingredients and uses a crockpot…it doesn’t get any easier. You can always adjust the spice level by adding chili pepper or some chipotle […]

Arroz con Pollo

Every culture seems to have its own variation on a chicken and rice dish. The Spanish have paella, Indians have biriyani and there is the ever popular chicken and rice casserole with condensed soup and cheese that Americans enjoy (not a fan of that, by the way). I realize this recipe is not authentic to […]

Meatless Monday

It’s been a while since we’ve done a Meatless Monday. I love vegetarian meals because they are so easy and you get your protein and vegetables all in one dish! I adapted this recipe to suit my tastes (it was originally meant to be burritos but I prefer enchiladas). We had these along with Spanish […]

Chipotle at Home

Our family loves Chipotle. I would have been devastated if our small town did not have one here…that along with Chick-fil-A, but I digress. Most people do not know that the flour tortillas have 290 calories, the serving of white rice has 130 calories and the chips have 570 calories! Tack on sour cream and […]

Welcome!

Welcome to my food blog! I’ve wanted to do a food blog for a while now and finally took the plunge when a dear friend (Rachel!) encouraged me to do so. I love to cook and find every aspect of it therapeutic. I find most joy in hosting and serving delicious meals to my family […]
