Baked Chicken ChimichangasI adapted this recipe from an old Cooking Light recipe. I love it but made a few changes. It's my go-to recipe. It's a great recipe for using up left over chicken. My whole family will eat it, too!
Tamale PieThis is a delicious, quick, and easy casserole to make for dinner or anytime. I love spicy food and this dish can be prepared mild or spicy. Add a green salad and your meal is complete.
Spicy Mexican Rice (Electric Skillet)This is a combination of Spanish Rice and Stuffed Peppers. My kids ate everything, but my spousal unit was a picky eater. He didn't like bell peppers and the rest of us loved them. He would eat the filling from the stuffed pepper and leave the 'shell'.
Battered Fish Tacos with Fresh SlawThese tacos are filled with puffy, crispy buttermilk fried fish and a wonderfully refreshing cabbage, corn, and pepper slaw. The flavours are as vibrant as the colours presented. Enjoy!
Super Stuffed Beef BurritoSomething my friends and family ask me to make all the time are my super stuffed burritos. I fill them with all the goodies and wrap them up really tight so nothing falls out. Follow my recipe and rolling technique to find out how I make these yummy burritos!
Seafood "Alley" TacosEver price a lobster or shrimp taco? Some places charge $8.99 for a two taco shrimp plate or $9.99 for a two taco lobster plate. I made these homemade seafood tacos for less than $.50 per taco. I call them "Alley" tacos because they are cheaper than a street taco!
Fresh Fish TacosI've heard a lot of people mention they don't like fish tacos because they're mushy and none of the flavours stand out as much as other meat tacos. Here is a way to make them crisp and refreshing. Using only coleslaw and salsa as accompaniments really helps the fish stand out. I've added a link to my Mexican Coleslaw recipe below, but you could use any type.
Mexican Street Corn TacosThis is a delicious twist on tacos. I used Mexican street corn as my inspiration to fill these tortillas. It's creamy and zesty and really hits the spot when you don't have things like guacamole or sour cream on hand. It pairs very nicely with the meat, cheese, and salsa inside.
Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Cream SauceThese shrimp tacos have a zesty kick and are cooled down by a creamy avocado sauce. They're extremely easy to make, great for even the busiest days!
Instant Pot CarnitasHere's a delicious and juicy pork carnitas recipe made in an Instant Pot! If you would like, you can pan fry the carnitas after it's been cooked for the meat to be crispy.
Grilled GuacamoleThis is a nice twist on the usual guacamole. You grill the avocados before you add them to the rest of the ingredients. The result is a guacamole with a lovely, deep smokey flavour. You can grill your avocados on your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan. I used the grill portion of a panini press.
Beef Taquitos from Leftover RoastEvery "blue-moon", not very often, but it happens, I'll overcook meat. I didn't like the thought of throwing it out, but it wasn't good at all-way too dry, and it hit me. Why not just use that dry overcooked beef for taquitos since I'm mixing a few other ingredients into it?

Blue Corn TortillasYou don't have to have a tortilla press to enjoy fresh, homemade corn tortillas. They keep for a week when refrigerated. To reheat, just put them over a medium flame on the skillet, cooking 20-30 seconds per side.
Homemade Mini ChurrosSo I encountered something new to my tastebuds. Churros. I was very curious about how it was made because its stuffed and I like the texture of it. So I tried it at home but due to unavailability of ingredients, I used chocolate syrup instead of making a chocolate sauce. But I will still include the recipe of the chocolate sauce.
Cheese-Wrapped Chicken EnchiladaThis is a take on chicken enchiladas that's great for cheese lovers, or those looking for a low carb dish. It knocks out the use of tortillas altogether and uses pan melted cheese that solidifies enough to use as a wrapper. The texture is absolutely dreamy, with little crispy edges of cheese. Fun and tasty!
Exquisite Chile RellenosThese Rellenos are out of this world! A friend of my mom, who had a restaurant for over 60 years, taught my mom years ago how to make these, then my mom taught me too.
