Honestly if it weren't for my husband I would have always stuck with carne asada tacos. I am the kind of person who, when finds a dish they love at a restaurant, sticks to it. I will be the most loyal human to that dish they ever did see. I suppose I'm like this for two reasons.... 1. If I'm going to spend my hard earned money on something it better be good! 2. I'm usually going to that restaurant because I totally craving that specific meal! My husband has a great knowledge of mexican food . . .
When I say I love Mexican food, I mostly mean I love tacos, beans and rice. I'm one that tends to get what I love and stick to it. My husband is one who who loves to try all sorts of mexican food. He lived breathed spoke and ate all kinds of authentic mexican food for two years. He understands their menus so much more than I and is adventurous when it comes to this type of ethnic food. A while ago some friends invited us over for dinner. The husband is from Mexico and his wife is from . . .

This skillet can handle the high high heat of broiling, has a . . .
My family is on a blackened salsa kick this last month. Two of my favorite restaurants make their salsa blackened. I've tried roasting my salsa several times but it wasn't the same! I was missing a few key elements. I found this out one day while touring the back kitchen of a popular restaurant here in Southern California. As I walked by a few of the chefs I noticed they were chopping up many black, charred vegetables. Peppers, tomatoes, and SHALLOTS. (Not onion.) So I tweaked my recipe to . . .
HOOOOOOLY Crap. If I could swear and get away with it I would. These tacos are THAT good. we all LOVED these tacos. I've made a few different versions of chili-lime tacos, trying to find the right balance. But guys. These are the winner. The two secret ingredients...more chili and more lime. Not just any ol' chili though. That was my problem. Chili powder, dried chilis, smokey chili's were not doing the trick! What we needed? Sriracha baby!! My husband has recently become obsessed with . . .
I am a strong believer of the tacos and the salsas. There cannot be too many tacos or salsas ever, in my life. I mean seriously. Fresh, healthy, lean, sat-is-fy-ing. A couple of weeks ago I went to one of my favorite restaurants here in California called The Yard House. I ordered a few tacos al a cart 1. of them being a steak. 2. a carnita with pineapple salsa. Have mercy it was good. Ever since then I have been itching to make them at home. So finally, one long sunny hot sunday afternoon I . . .
CLICK HERE to Enter the Nena & Co Giveaway. What I love about this salsa is the liiiimes. Typical salsa calls for 1 or 2 lime, this one- 6! Six delicious limes. Are you worried that it is a little overpowering? Amazingly it is not. Its a perfect balance. Salsa is really so simple to make, and fast. It compliments every dish. Makes for a great healthy snack, and saves in the fridge forever. We always have a mason jar full of salsa in our fridge. My kids eat it like candy, and that . . .
Are you guys loving our Cinco De Mayo Week!? This week is seriously one of my favorites. I'm a huge lover of Mexican cuisine. Fresh salsas, tender meats, and lime over everything. Today I'm sharing with you my Pico De Gallo. There are about a thousand ways to make Pico. In true street taco form pico typically is tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. Drizzle some glorious lime and pinch of salt and your done. Simple and amazing. While I am a fan of this method, when I am fixing up some Pico to . . .
The Boon Inc. Giveaway has ended! We would like to congratulate Leah Quinn!! you were our lucky winner. Please check your inbox from an email from Oh So Delicioso!! Fruit is just so refreshing no matter what time of day you eat it, but especially so in the morning. It's filling but not heavy, its sweet but with natural sweeteners, and its bursting with flavor (and vitamins)! Kadee's fruit salsa is a huge favorite of mine. So for the bunch we thought having individual servings would be . . .
One of my favorite things ever is a good tangy green salsa. Whether just dipping chips, over steak tacos, or marinating chicken in it.. I love it. And it's incredibly simple to make at home. To make this you will need some Tomatillos. Now tomatillos verde in Spanish translates to "green tomato" but they actually are not the same as a green tomato. Just to clarify. Tomatillos will come in a green husk. Before making remove husk and wash off the sticky residue. With some good tomatillos, . . .
