Instant Pot Carnitas

I have shared my intense love/obsession with authentic and traditional tasting Mexican food on this blog over and over again. I could honestly eat Mexican food 3 times a week and be happy as a clam! Being that I no longer live in the mecca of good Mexican food, I have to figure out ways to recreate my own.  Carnitas are hands down one of my favorite items I will order off of any good Mexican food menu. I have…

Mexican Lasagna Casserole

It is a pretty regular occurrence that whenever my dad and I talk, we spent quite a bit of time talking about what we are cooking or what we have cooked. I have fond memories of sitting at our snack bar as a kid and watching him cook. I honestly believed growing up that my dad was like magic, he could build, cook, and create anything from scratch. And he regularly did. And to this day, I get a lot of inspiration…

Taco Stuffed Peppers

It is no secret here that I’ve continually shared my love of Mexican food. I seriously could eat some form of it three times a week and never tire of it. So, when you find yourself with an abundance of peppers, what else is a taco lover supposed to be besides stuff them taco style!?  These taco stuffed peppers were awesome and super easy to make. They were like a little taco meatloaf encased in the peppers.  I upped the…

Chile Rellenos

If you’ve followed this blog for any amount of time, it is no secret I LOVE Mexican food. I am always on the hunt for authentic recipes of my favorite Mexican dishes. I finally found a Mexican rice recipe I love, I nailed the green enchiladas, and a couple weekends ago I tried my hand at Chile Rellenos. I scoured the internet for a recipe and didn’t find one that satisfied me. So I took several recipes and put them…

Guacamole

Growing up I was never really a fan of guacamole… It’s green and goopy. It looked scary. Or maybe I just never had homemade guacamole. Now that I’ve discovered the joy that is homemade guac, I literally could eat close to a whole bowl in one sitting. I heart guac. Homemade guac.  Hence the reason it always makes me cringe when I come across store bought guac. (Sorry if that is you). This guacamole recipe literally takes 15 minutes, tops.…

PW Style Carnitas Pizza

Since I am from California, the land of the most delicious and authentic carnitas in the world, every time I hear a recipe involving Carnitas, my ears perk up. When I received the Pioneer Woman’s second cookbook and was flipping through it, I came across a Carnitas Pizza recipe. The recipe involves cooking a slow braising a roast in mango papaya pinapple juice AND THEN using it on a pizza with salsa verde and sauteed onions and peppers. Sounds amazing right?…

Brisket Tacos

It is certainly no surprise that one of the things I miss the most about living in California is Mexican food. I could honestly eat it three times a week, no problem. This recipe certainly isn’t authentic by any means, but it uses many of the flavors and key ingredients. Brisket has always been a favorite of mine for tacos versus slow cooking it for bbq or something of that nature. But you could really use any sort of meat…
