Cantina Style Salsa

I’m kind of a brat when it comes to salsa. I grew up eating hole-in-the-wall restaurant style cantina salsa and all those premade grocery store shelf jars always tasted too sweet and processed. So now I just make my own. It goes great with my Carne Asada Tacos, tortilla chips and Green Chile Chicken Chimichangas!Continue reading “Cantina Style Salsa”

Chicken Fajita Pizza

Mango Salsa Herb Pork Tenderloin

I made Mango Salsa Herb Pork Tenderloin for dinner! 💕 The fusion of Mexican and Italian is surprisingly amazing! It’s so simple to make and went really well with the Steamed Rice and Roasted Zucchini.

Copycat Restaurant Refried Beans

This is the closest I’ve gotten to mexican restaurant style refried beans.

Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

I made Chicken Enchiladas for dinner and they were amazing. If you don’t have the spice ingredients, you can certainly use premixed taco seasoning. I know that most recipes call for black olives over top, but I’m not a huge fan of them on my enchiladas. I baked the chicken so I could finish aContinue reading “Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas”
