I know it would be Mexican, and most likely it would be Smothered Chicken Burritos. Yep, this would be my choice for my last meal on earth, maybe I'd try to eat 2 of them! It's hands down my favorite way to use Green Chile Sauce. I promised I would share four different ways to…Read More
"Make mine all green," that's what I almost always order at my favorite Mexican haunts. I used to buy big cans of green enchilada sauce, but they are expensive, and not nearly as good as my Green Chile Sauce. I'm staking my reputation on yo' mamacita's gravy, I've had a lot of verde sauce, trust…Read More
I just can't help myself from ordering the same thing almost every time. You got it, a chicken burrito, served enchilada style with verde sauce and cheese. Add some Cafe Rio Style Black Beans on the side and Mexican Rice with Cilantro Dressing, tan bueno! (more…)Read More
Few things are better than fabulous black beans, any style. I fix Cafe Rio Style Black Beans at least once a month, really more like twice or three times they are so good. They are seriously nutritious, high in protein, low-carb, low-fat, and terrific with all of our Cafe Rio favorites. I just want to…Read More
What South of the Border specialty is sought after at your house? We love it all, salsa, guacamole, but my, "gotta' have 'em NOW," prized treat is Mexican Pickled Carrots! These quick-pickled carrots are served as a condiment, at taco stands all over Central Mexico and I even find them at local taco shops. The…Read More
Crunchy and comfortable...Chickpea Chicken Tostadas is a Mexican meal with a Mediterranean twist! That's how I felt when I bit into this tostada. The chipolte peppers add a kick, but not too much heat. If you are sensitive to spicy, start with 1 chipolte pepper. Otherwise, bring it on. I could eat them every…Read More
Before you begin stuffing that turkey, fire up your grill and make to die for Shrimp Mazatlan! I just returned from our annual Girl's Week where I partied with my mom and 5 sisters in Scottsdale, Arizona. I would have a fabulous time with this group anywhere, but there is just something about the desert. …Read More
Good grief, I feel like I'm trying not to get CHOPPED from my own kitchen! I joined a food co-op and picked up my first basket of fruits and veggies last Saturday afternoon. There's no question, it's a good value, but I wasn't sure if it was the right fit for me. I received a…Read More
I'm crazy for a really great tostada, light, fresh, and crunchy with some zing! I mean really great and Black Bean Tostadas with Chili-Lime Dressing are amazing. It's my clone of one I used to order at a little Mexican place in Fallbrook, California. (more…)Read More
Our friends frequently visited a local Mexican restaurant that had great chips and salsa. One night they dipped a chip and came up with a chunk of chewed gum. Horrified, they told the manager that if he would share his salsa recipe, they'd call it a draw. I'm sure it was all in good fun…Read More
