Rick Bayless Brick Red Mole over Shredded Beef Barbacoa Enchiladas

Rick Bayless Brick Red Mole & Beef Enchiladas

Cinco de Mayo is almost upon us, the day that commemorates the victory of the Mexican army over the French near the city of Puebla on 5 May 1862. In the U.S., Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate Mexican culture. If you know me, you gotta know that I’m down with that & I hardly need any excuse to whip up some Mexican food. I thought I’d celebrate the day with Rick Bayless Brick Red Mole napped over Shredded Barbacoa Beef Enchiladas.

Our Family’s Favorite Tacos

Our family's taco - make with a home-made classic seasoning or with our smokin' chipotle taco seasoning.

Unless you grew up around Mexican food, chances are your first introduction to it was probably the ground beef taco. And maybe you make them for your family – they’re fast, easy & everyone seems to love them from kids to kids at heart. I make a few different kinds of ground beef tacos, but these are our fave.

Southwestern Steak Salad

seriously noteworthy! Avocado cilantro lime dressing, roasted corn & black bean salsa, a tangle of fried tortilla strips, & Carne Asada.

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.

Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos

Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos

Slow cooked to perfection, this fall off the bone, tender pork was featured in “Slow Cooker Redeemed” in the New York Times. “It results in a vaguely Vietnamese tangle of pulled pork that is best accompanied by a bright and crunchy slaw, and served on warm flour tortillas…” I made you wait for Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos, yesterday when I posted the Vaguely Vietnamese Slaw recipe, and I think these Tacos are worth that little delay.

Steak Chimichanga with Green Chili Verde Sauce

Steak Chimichanga with Green Chili Verde Sauce

This Steak Chimichanga with Green Chili Verde Sauce is one of my fave recipes and it came from leftover steak. Who has leftover steak, anyway? I don’t know about you, but certainly not at my house where steak is a bit of a rarity. At my folks? Yeah. Quite frequently. A love of beef (they live in ranching country) and smaller appetites often lead to a bit of steak that could easily languish in the fridge.

Chilaquiles in Tomatillo Sauce with Shredded Chicken

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.

Rajas con Crema Tacos

One of my all time favorite Mexican foods is Rajas – mild Poblano peppers, roasted, cut in strips and in the case of “con Crema” simmered for a few minutes in cream. Often served with cheese mixed in, they can be rich or can be served simply, as shown below.
