Mexican Rice

Happy Cinco de Mayo!   Where I live May 5th is celebrated as a day to enjoy some tasty Tex-Mex or authentic Mexican food, have a few beers, and get together with friends and family.   I love Tex-Mex, which I think I have said before, so any excuse is a good when my favorite food […]

Chicken Enchiladas with Chipotle Sour Cream Sauce

Friday, March 19, 2010

25 Comments

I’ve never liked chicken enchiladas very much in Tex-Mex restaurants. The filling is mushy, the sauce is bland, and they can be a bit on the soggy side.  So, when I was thinking of recipes I could make for dinner a few nights back I wondered if I could make a chicken enchilada that I […]

Beef Empanadas

When I entertain I like to have a wide variety of foods available to snack on.  It keeps things from getting boring and it keeps the palate active. So, when I plan a party of a gathering where little bites will be served I always make something with a Tex-Mex flair.  These empanadas are the perfect […]

Tex-Mex Macaroni and Cheese

Make no mistake, I adore macaroni and cheese. I have posted a recipe here before and it is sublime. It is one of my favorite things to eat, and I love to tinker with my original recipe and see what new variations I can come up with.   This new recipe combines macaroni and cheese […]

Tex-Mex Potato Cheese Soup

I’ve established that I used to be in a potato rut.  No longer, I am happy to report, and this recipe proves it. Potato soup is something I love to eat but never really make.   The last recipe I tried made a large pot of what can best be described as wall paper paste.  So, […]

Baked Sopes with Skirt Steak and Black Beans

Living so close to the Mexican border you would think you would get more authentic Mexican food, but we really don’t.  We get a lot of really yummy Tex-Mex, the fusion of Mexican flavors with Southwestern ingredients and traditional cowboy cooking methods. There are times, however, when I crave the food of Mexico.  In particular […]

Spicy Red Bean Soup

 Sometimes you just need a good bowl of soup.  The funny thing about soup is that despite how easy most soups are to make at home we, as a society, so often turn to the cans of soup that line grocery store shelves.  Yes, they are easy to prepare, but for all their ease of use they lack […]

Queso Blanco

There are certain foods that I crave and am completely unable to resist.    One of those foods is queso blanco.  This creamy cheese dip is finding its way on to the menus of  Tex-Mex restaurants next to the traditional orange chili con queso.  It is made with a variety of white cheeses and spices depending on where […]

Baked Fish Tacos with Chipotle Dressing

I love warm weather food!  There is nothing like it, and when the temperature breaks the 95F mark I pull out my favorite Summer recipes. One such recipe is fish tacos.   Cool and crisp lettuce, creamy avocado, and crunchy fish wrapped in a corn tortilla is perfect for a light afternoon lunch, or a dinner […]
