Enchilada Stack

This is a recipe that I’ve probably been making for at least 10 years now. I adapted it from a recipe I got from a Quick Cooking Magazine (now called Simple and Delicious). The great thing about this recipe is most of the work is done in the microwave so this dish is quick to... Read More

Barbecue Chicken Quesadillas

They have bbq chicken pizza, so why not a bbq chicken quesadilla! A while back, I had some family over for dinner and I made slow cooker barbecue chicken. I ended up having some left overs. I never mind having leftovers, and this leftover chicken went into my freezer. The other day I was ready... Read More

Black Bean and Corn Salsa

This salsa is quick and easy to make. It needs at least 1 hour in the fridge but is best if you can give it a full 12-24 hours to really absorb all the flavors. This recipe is also known as Cowboy Caviar. I have modified the original recipe slightly. Black Bean and Corn Salsa... Read More


Flautas |

This is a family favorite at our house. Flautas means flutes in Spanish. These look like little flutes. Flautas are also known as taquitos. Typically the difference is flautas are made with flour tortillas and taquitos are made with corn. Either way, how can you lose with meat, cheese and a tortilla shell that’s deep... Read More

Jacketed Tacos

Jacketed Tacos

Crispy or soft tortilla? Why not have both?  I got the idea for these jacketed tacos from a restaurant we went to a while ago. Tacos are on my menu quite frequently. Since we eat them often it’s always fun to mix it up a little and do something different. I also included some other... Read More

Taco Soup

Taco Soup

I have a taco soup recipe that I usually make. However, yesterday on Good Things Utah they did a recipe for taco soup and I decided to give it a try. In the recipe, it calls for a package of ranch dressing in addition to the taco seasoning. I have seen recipes with this in... Read More

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup |

This recipe comes from Melanie at The Sisters’ Cafe. I had never made anything like this before. I think the only Mexican soup I have ever made is taco soup. I left out the cilantro, because I did have any. I also thought I had corn tortillas in my refrigerator but I didn’t so I... Read More

Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Chicken

Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Chicken

This recipe comes from Prudence Pennywise. My family loves Mexican food and we love the recipe I have for Cafe Rio Sweet Pork. So sweet chicken sounded equally tasty. I’m also always up for a good recipe made in my slow cooker. I have to admit, I tasted the chicken after cooking and I probably added... Read More

Bean Burritos

My husband is a big burrito fan. Personally, I am more of an enchilada person. I like the tortillas filled with meat only, smothered in sauce and cheese. My husband loves burritos with everything in it: rice, beans, meat, cheese. I saw this recipe from Bobby on Blog Chef and figured I ought to give... Read More

Slow Cooker Steak Fajitas

Recently, I got an email from Taste of Home with a recipe in it for Slow Cooker Fajitas. I absolutely love fajitas and was interested in how this would be in a slow cooker. My husband and youngest son are not a fans of fajitas, so on the few times I actually make them, the... Read More
