Ancho Chicken Fajitas

We just finished up sauté week and I wanted to give it a proper farewell. I’ve been wanting to make homemade tortillas again for a while and chicken fajitas gave me the perfect excuse! I added a bit of bacon grease, garlic powder, green onion and smoked paprika to the tortillas and it was soContinue reading “Ancho Chicken Fajitas”

Green Chile Chicken Flautas

First time making and trying flautas! I was forced to eat frozen taquitos when I was younger and haven’t been interested in rolled tacos since. But I had some rotisserie chicken I needed to use up and I saw a post on instagram that looked so delicious!  15 uncooked Flour Tortillas 4 cups Rotisserie ChickenContinue reading “Green Chile Chicken Flautas”

Crispy Grilled Elk Tacos

These delicious little tacos really hit the spot! I normally double up my tortillas, but they held up brilliantly when frying and didn’t need any extra structural support. The marinade is key to perfectly tender elk meat, as this was an old bull and his meat was a bit on the tough side. Elk: 2Continue reading “Crispy Grilled Elk Tacos”

Restaurant Style Mexican Rice

I have no idea how traditional it is, but it’s the closest to restaurant style Mexican rice I’ve come. It’s so simple and quick to make!

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”
