Just enough for me to indulge in my favorite guilty pleasure, Taco Bell. This post was not influenced by my craving for Taco Bell at all. All opinions are my own, as always. One of the first things I do when I move to a new community, and I’ve moved a lot, is to find a local Mexican restaurant that I want to frequent. It’s “hard” work going to multiple eateries looking for the perfect one. The first thing I

Chipotle Chicken Quesadillas

Chipotle Chicken Quesadillas

I’ve made no secret of the fact that Mexican is, by far, my favorite cuisine. I love everything about it, from the spices to the variety of dishes and sauces. Honestly, I could happily eat Mexican food every day and not be bored.  One dish I made (often) when I was single was quesadillas. Tortillas, cheese, and other fillers I craved. Basic goodness. It was quick and easy to make without having leftovers, unless I wanted them.  Luckily, I married a man who loves Mexican almost as much as me, and have raised two girls who love cheese quesadillas (as well

Chipolte Tacos with “Homemade” Shells

It is a well-established fact on this blog, and otherwise, that I love and adore tacos! My love for tacos began as a child. My parents made them quite regularly. Like most households, taco night was a favorite in our home.  It wasn’t until I was much older that I realized that taco night in our house was different from everywhere else. Namely, we NEVER used a taco kit bought from the grocery store. My parents would simply brown the beef and serve with shredded cheese, diced tomatoes and lettuce. The other main difference were the shells. My parents fried flour tortillas

Easy Chicken Tacos

Since we love Mexican food so much in our home, my husband and I are constantly on the lookout for new ways to make our favorites, like tacos. Tacos are a definite classic! The neat thing is that there are so many ways to make them. (And we are slowly convincing our picky daughter Ginny that they are worth eating, too.) This recipe for Chicken Ranch Tacos looked too tempting and easy to pass up. I love chicken tacos! I started off with 3 cups of cooked chicken. I had 2 cups ready to go from my freezer that I

Chorizo Chicken Bake

Every once in a while, I come across a recipe that amazes me. It makes me wonder how a person came up with the idea. Sometimes, I’m even brave enough to try the dish or make it myself.  Not long ago, I came across a recipe on Pinterest for Chorizo Chicken Bake. It looked amazing. I was most astounded that someone would think to put a different meat on chicken and serve it that way. I never would consider browning sausage just to bake it over chicken. It would never occur to me. I’m so grateful that it Carole at

I love to cook but I don’t do many recipes on my blog, so I’m excited to share a great recipe for you today. Let’s talk crock pots: I love them! I own three of them. It kind of happened by accident. I had an old 6 quart one and a 1 quart one for the longest time. Then when

Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos

Since Mexican food is one of my favorite cuisines, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I pin a lot of taco recipes on Pinterest. I’ve pinned beef taco recipes, pork, and chicken. In my mind, there is no such thing as a bad taco. Well, at least I haven’t met a taco I haven’t liked, yet. I also love using my slow cooker. My slow cooker and I have been “friends” for years. Personally, I prefer to use the slow cooker when making meat for Mexican dishes. The meat always turns out moist, flavorful, and, most importantly, delicious. This recipe I

Taco Egg Rolls

Twice a year, in my home, we make appetizers the main meal, New Year’s Eve and the Super Bowl. (Three times if you count spending Christmas Eve with my in-laws.) I look forward to those meals every year. For some reason, eating appetizers as dinner seems like a guilty pleasure, a complete and total indulgence.  When I saw this recipe for Taco Egg Rolls on Pinterest, I was immediately intrigued. I love and adore tacos, and I love egg rolls! What a perfect combination! They also turned out fairly easy to make, with the most complicated part being rolling the

Chile Colorado Burritos

The burrito is one of my favorite foods. Recently, I discovered that my younger sister (in her late 30s, I might add) had never eaten a burrito. How is that possible? How can you go your whole life without that glorious food? I love burritos enough that I always on the lookout for new recipes to making them. I found this recipe for Chile Colorado Burritos on Pinterest ages ago. We have tried it in my home, now, three times. We love it that much! Not only is this recipe easy to make, it has amazing flavor. What makes this recipe

Roasted Tomatillo & Lime Chicken with Sauteed Corn, Bacon, and Scallions

A couple of weeks ago, when I was busy meal planning, I decided that I needed to be much more deliberate about what I chose to cook for my family. Specifically, I need to include a vegetable and/or a side dish with each meal. I admit that I’m awful about doing this. When I was single, I was lucky if I cooked at all. When I did cook, I often made a casserole that would last me the entire week. Cooking for just one person can be a challenge.  Now, I have a lovely family of four. Granted, only two
