Pumpkin Sauce Enchiladas

Pumpkin Sauce Enchiladas

You’d never know there was pumpkin in these enchiladas except for the slightly orange color of the sauce. The pumpkin puree replaces the traditional tomato base and just tastes of Tex-Mex goodness when mixed with jalapeños, garlic, and all of the works. The sauce is made in the blender and then you just pour it…

Frozen Raspberry Margaritas

Frozen Raspberry Margaritas

Dustin and I prefer margaritas on the rocks, but sometimes a frozen margarita really hits the spot on a hot day. We had some fresh berries in the fridge from the farmer’s market, so we decided to make some blackberry margaritas. You can use any berry desired, but that’s what we had. Just make sure you…

Taco Lasagna

Taco Lasagna

Best use of leftover tortillas from making loads of enchiladas? Taco lasagna. Since you don’t need to roll the tortillas, they can be slightly stale, which if  you tried to use in enchilada making, you’d end up with enchiladas that are falling apart (as we have experienced personally lately). The concept is pretty simple. Use…

Gnocchi con Queso y Chorizo

Gnocchi con Queso y Chorizo

We’ve tried making chile con queso at home before using a recipe from the Homesick Texan cookbook. It was good in flavor, but it lacked the texture and “meltyness” we’ve come to expect from the legit Tex-Mex queso of my homeland. Apparently the secret to that texture and “meltyness” is white American cheese in block…

Chicken Enchilada Soup

Chicken Enchilada Soup

As I mentioned a few days ago, we were brimming with Mexican food the week before Cinco de Mayo. I fully intended to write out all of the posts for the delicious food we made, but then real life happened. This past weekend was my first experience as a graduate student where I understood how being…

[Cook the] Duck Tacos

[Cook the] Duck Tacos

It’s that time again. It’s time to Cook the Ducks! Our LA Kings are facing our local rival, the Anaheim Ducks in the NHL playoffs. To rally with Jonathan Quick and Co., we feasted on duck. It’s hard to tell who got destroyed worse— our duck tacos to the Ducks in the game one Saturday night.…

Chicken Tamale Burrito Bowls

Chicken Tamale Burrito Bowls

We are celebrating the week leading up to Cinco de Mayo with a whole slew of Mexican recipes I’ve been brainstorming and saving up for the past few months (and margaritas), beginning with these chicken tamale burrito bowls. These bowls have everything I love topped on my Chipotle burrito bowl from the store, but made…

Chicken Enchilada Mac ‘N’ Cheese

Chicken Enchilada Mac ‘N’ Cheese

Well it’s finally happened. We hit the point where we weren’t able to make a daily post. I really thought it would happen last quarter, but I made it through. Just into the third week of the winter quarter, I already have a lot more work and a lot more responsibility. I definitely wouldn’t have…

Tortilla Chip Crusted Chicken Taco Salad with Avocado Chipotle Dressing

Tortilla Chip Crusted Chicken Taco Salad with Avocado Chipotle Dressing

After the success of the Doritos crusted chicken tenders, we wanted to give a Mexican twist to the idea and crust chicken with tortilla chips, and serve it on top of a salad. Pretty healthy, right? The dressing on its own is a little boring— just chipotle powder blended with light sour cream and avocado,…

Red Wine Chorizo & Crockpot Spanish Rice- FAIL

Red Wine Chorizo & Crockpot Spanish Rice- FAIL

We were literally talking the other night about cooking and about the fact that we have been really successful in the kitchen. We were trying to think of an instance where we made something that really just didn’t work, and we couldn’t recall anything. I would say less than a week later, this dish came…
