Chorizo Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Happy Cinco de Mayo!! Rather than give you yet another dip, enchilada, nacho, or taco recipe I thought to provide you a spicy/salty nibble to help soak up all the celebratory May 5th drinks.  For a long while I have been in love with bacon wrapped dates.  Something about sweet, tender dates wrapped in crisp, […]

Chorizo Dip

Monday, December 27, 2010

I find when guests come to visit that a good dip can make the evening. I’m not sure what it is exactly about dip that is so enticing, but I do know that a good dip recipe, or two, can be a life saver.  Perhaps it is the communal aspect of dips, the fact that […]

Queso Chicken Pasta

For the last few weeks I have been terribly busy.   When life starts to pile up on me, and lately that happens a lot, I crave easy meals that offer a lot of comfort.  Comfort, for me, comes in the form of cheesy pasta with a Tex-Mex kick.  I know I have mentioned before my […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Soft Taco Stack

I’ll admit it.  I do not use my new slow-cooker enough.  I really don’t.   That is why I am going to try and make a habit of participating in Thoughtless Thursdays over at Pots and Plots.   For this edition of Thoughtless Thursday I made a Soft Taco Stack.  It is all the components […]
