Bean burritos once saved my life. Seriously. When I broke my foot, the docs sent me home thinking it was a sprain. What a mess that was – my back went out from using the crutches. I couldn’t stand up, each movement was agony and I spent several days crawling around the house. I happened to have a few groceries I hadn’t put away on the table and I was able to cobble together some bean burritos. They weren’t as well put together as these Freezer Friendly Burritos, heck, I couldn’t even warm them up, but as they say, “Hunger is the best sauce!”
Here’s a new to me soup that you might like, too. Yucatan Pork Stew Instant Pot or Not. You might be familiar with Taco Soup or Sopa de Lima. They’re kind of relatives & share some of the same qualities and ingredients.
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 & see what I thought of his recipe.
Caldo de Res is usually a long-simmered beef Mexican soup made with shank, but today I wanted to show you a shortcut Caldo de Res you can get on the table quickly. And not to worry guys, I know I’ve been posting a lot of Mexican food! I’ll be mixing things up this week just in case you’re not the fan I am!
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!
