Smothered Chicken Burritos

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…

Cafe Rio Style Black Beans

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…

Mexican Pickled Carrots

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!

Chickpea-Chicken Tostadas

Chicken Tacos with Garlicky Mexican Greens

 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…

My Three Boys Salsa

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…
