Tacos are a big deal around here. We even taught a taco and salsa class at Pinner's Conference last fall. Taco Tuesdays are a tradition at our house - so I was anxious to make this Beef Barbacoa in my Instant Pot. I love that the Instant Pot produces textures as if the food was slowly cooked all day - but in a fraction of the time. . . .
We love tacos. I can't tell you how many posts we have here that have that sentence in it. You know what makes tacos lousy? Store-bought tortillas. You know what makes tacos great? Homemade flour tortillas. . . .
If it's one thing I do, it's bring people meals. I'm one of the first to offer to bring friends a meal after a baby, or surgery, or after a social media post that they're sick or had a miscarriage or husband lost a job or whatever it is, because food is my love language! It's one of the easiest ways I know and love to serve because it comes so naturally to me! One thing that is really so easy to bring to others is smokey spiced pulled pork tacos. I do the pork in my Power Pressure Cooker . . .
I can still remember the first time I ate a fish taco. It sounded terrible. I was resistant to try it. I was 14 years old, and I had traveled to San Diego, CA to visit my aunt. She picked me up from the airport and insisted we stop at Rubio's. All I can say is that it was love at first bite. Years later I moved to San Diego to attend college, and stayed in southern California for nearly 15 years. Rubio's was a staple. My husband would pick it up every Saturday - and fish tacos were . . .
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 . . .
It's been awhile since I've done a post! It's good to be back! Back with a fun, healthy taco dish that your family will love. It's a bit of a twist on the traditional ground beef, pinto bean cheesy taco, this one has a mediterranean feel! The best part, it literally takes at most 20 minutes to make, so if you are having one of THOSE days, which let's be honest happens to me about 4 out of the 7 days a week, this meal is a perfect go to. Lentil tacos are rich with protein, low in fat, . . .
For how much we love tacos around here - you gotta believe we are eating them for breakfast! This recipe was inspired by a dish I used to order at a local restaurant in Long Beach, CA called Hof's Hut. I always loved those yummy tacos for breakfast! I have such fond memories of dining there with my dear friend. That's what food is all about right? The memories and the meaning. These tacos combine chicken, eggs, cheese, and a chipotle cream sauce for a burst of flavor! Rocking . . .
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 was just reminiscing last week with one of my BFFers about that one time I was pregnant with my favorite little girl and I couldn't do Mexican food. I survived on pasta and watermelon. And doughnuts. What a tragedy, because now, I survive on Mexican and watermelon. And doughnuts. One of my favorite recipes here is my Spicy Caribbean Shrimp and Mango Quinoa Salad. I took that shrimp and added a pineapple relish with pineapple, red bell pepper, cilantro, ginger, red pepper flakes, and coconut . . .
I've had this recipe rolling around in my head for a while. About a year ago my family and I moved from southern California to Nevada. Who's with me when I say that socal has THE BEST Mexican food? Especially Baja Mexican food! So, with that being said - I have majorly been craving a good Baja fish taco! Tilapia is a really mild fish. For those of you who don't care for seafood - this is a stepping stone fish. It isn't very strong and it can easily be flavored to taste however you . . .
