If you follow me, by now you’ve probably noticed I have a passion for Mexican food. And maybe you do, too? So when I started thinking about Cinco de Mayo coming up and Mother’s day right after, I couldn’t help but think of the classic Huevos Rancheros. Make that Huevos Rancheros! With an explanation mark!
If you are looking for a quick, easy and comforting skillet breakfast (that’s just as good for brinner) think of Eggs Poached in Rancheros Sauce. Cozy enough for the family & just fun enough for guests, this recipe has just enough spice to keeps things interesting.
Thanksgiving. It’s over. Or is it? If you need Leftover Turkey ideas, be sure to see my 12 Days of Turkey, which is now a collection of over 40 recipes for T-Day leftovers. Hopefully, you had a big salad like this Winter Salad with Avocado, Pomegranate & Maple Roasted Pecans for Thanksgiving. If not, maybe make it, now. And toss some leftover turkey in it if you’d like.
We seem to be having Cinco de Mayo week rather than just a day here at the Frugal household! Really, the three previous posts are all leading up to this very special recipe, Bob Armstrong’s Chile con Queso. What can I say? This is a masterpiece. I wish I could have gotten this recipe to you before the holiday, but make it anytime or pin it for later!
So do you guys use a recipe for Guacamole? Generally I don’t. I usually just go by taste & what I have on hand. I have another post coming up, Bob Armstrong Chile con Queso that calls for some Guacamole, so this time: a recipe.
I think I might have been a little cruel this last week. I’ve been mercilessly teasing you with this Southwestern Steak Salad on some of my prior posts. It’s seriously delish. Seriously noteworthy. You’ll need to make this one; it has something for everyone.
I think I talked last week about being a little obsessed about my spice mixes & concoctions – If you’re a follower, you probably already know I’m just as obsessive about my salad dressings! Today I’m obsessive about this Avocado & Cilantro Lime Dressing in particular.
I don’t know about you, but I love, love, love me some Chicken Tortilla Soup. Or some Turkey Tortilla Soup. Or probably ANY Tortilla Soup. Just put it in front of me and I’ll eat it – no questions asked.
I don’t know why this Steak Salad is called “California” Steak salad, but I bet those “California cows” aren’t too happy about that turn of events! I think it’s because of the avocado. Regardless of how happy this particular cow was, this salad is delish!
Fresh & quick these Grilled Chicken Tacos with Avocado Mango Salsa are sure to become a family favorite. I particularly like this recipe because the chicken uses a dry rub and the Salsa is a quickie so dinner can be on the table in no time at all – no need for a long marinade.
AARP. Who knew? I’ve been a proud member, according to my card, since 2015, but looking back I wish I would have signed up earlier.
Many of my friends aren’t familiar with Chilaquiles, which is a bit of a shame. Frankly, they sound a bit odd: Old tortillas broken into pieces, fried and then simmered in a sauce? One bite is all it will take to realize how wrong an assumption can be. The tortillas take on a life of their own in this Chilaquiles Verde; they not only thicken the bright, tangy tomatillo sauce but achieve a gorgeous texture, slightly softened with just a bit of chew; cooked right they’re simply sublime.
