Pineapple and Green Chile Pork Tacos

I am back now. I even put a post up late yesterday, so make sure to check that one out too. This is another great crock pot recipe. I adapted it from I recipe I saw on Prudence Pennywise. It was a hit with the whole family. The recipe also made enough for two meals,... Read More

Beef Taco Bake

Beef Taco Bake |

My family loves Mexican food. This Mexican dish is one that I’ve been making for years. I got the recipe off a can of Campbell’s tomato soup. It’s simple to make and is a big family pleaser. You can adjust the spice according to your tastes by the type of salsa you use. I make... Read More

Crepes Ensenada

This recipe works for breakfast, brunch, or dinner. Even though it’s called Crepes Ensenada, it doesn’t use actual crepes. It uses tortillas. I got this recipe from Angel Shannon when she was on Good Things Utah, a local TV show. I’ve been making this recipe since 2005. The flavors are a great combination. These aren’t... Read More

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
