Enchiladas, Margaritas and Micheladas - Ole!

I feel the same about Cinco de Mayo as I do about St Patrick’s Day. Both have become perverted by the alcohol industry in America (particularly the beer industry). What started as a celebration of ethnic pride has in many cases just turned into an excuse to go out and drink heavily. Ugh! So, am I selling out by sharing some Mexican recipes? Probably, but there is a slight irony to today’s recipe....more

Beef Tamale Casserole

Mexican food is one of my favorites, so it's no wonder I quickly jumped at the chance to make this when I was having an "off" day. I'm also a huge cornbread lover, so having it as the base of this dish made it that much better. If you love tamales, this casserole is definitely for you. It's the layered form of one and probably ten times easier to make. Enjoy! ...more
You definitely should! It's super yummy :)more

Acuña in the Summer

It seems every time I go home I see Mexico in a different light. Last time it was Christmas and everything seemed so beautiful under the twinkling lights, our traditions so rich, and our heritage great. This time, under the sweltering heat of summer things seemed a bit more bleak. Nevertheless, the company and the food were as good as always....more

Break out the Margaritas's!

Viva! Cinco de Mayo! Do you know why we celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the US? Some people seem to think that Cinco de Mayo, May 5th is a celebration of Mexico’s Independence from Spain.  Not true, Mexico declared Independence from Spain on September 15th 1810. Now that we have cleared that up, on May 5th, 1862 in Pueblo Mexico the Mexican army of 4,000 soldiers defeated the French Army of 8,000. ...more

Less Guilt on Cinco de Mayo: Crispy, Oven-Baked Chimichangas

Saturday is Cinco de Mayo, so I figured (like every other food blogger on the planet this week) that I’d throw a Mexican inspired meal your way.  I love Mexican food and, thankfully, my family does as well, so we are frequent patrons at the Mexican restaurants around town.  Every time we try a new Mexican place, my husband orders a chimichanga.  He feels that if they can make a chimi that he enjoys, it’s worth stopping in to visit them again.  I love a good chimi myself, but my waistline does not.  They are delicious for a reason…chicken or beef, stuffed with cheese...more
