I brought this tasty crockpot meal to work yesterday for a lunch potluck. It was loosely based off of this AllRecipes recipe that was quite highly rated. I got rave reviews from all my coworkers for my version, and the only reason I had this much left to take ...

Three Chile Salsa

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I made this salsa for a contest at work (though sadly I did not win). The three chiles are the bell pepper, the jalapeƱo, and the ancho. It's inspired by this recipe by Alton Brown. This is a good, flavorful ...

Carne Asada

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

This recipe is inspired by this one on AllRecipes. I quite liked the citrus-y marinade. Shaun wasn't as much of a fan, but thought it was alright. Carne Asada Serves 8 1.5 lb flank steak or flat iron steak For the marinade: 1/4 cup white vinegar 1/3 cup soy sauce 4 cloves garlic, pressed 2 limes, juiced ...

Turkey Picadillo Stuffed Poblanos

Friday, September 17th, 2010

This is a healthy take on stuffed peppers. This is oven broiled and stuffed with a lean meat and veggie mixture rather than cheese. The picadillo is a Brazilian version, based on this Allrecipes version. Ground beef is more traditional, but the ground turkey is a good ...

Citrus Tequila Chicken

Monday, July 5th, 2010

This Mexican-inspired chicken is inspired by a similar recipe I saw on Cooking in Cucamonga. The marinade works very well and made for an easy and flavorful meal on the grill for the long holiday weekend. I served this with some refried beans and a tossed green salad. ...

A Hearty Lunch

This was going to be dinner last night, but we ended up just foraging for some snacks. It made a nice lunch, though! Black Bean and Ham Soup with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Chipotle Pork Posole

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Another winner inspired by Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast. This soup was easy and very flavorful with a`few additions - more garlic and some traditional Mexican spices. This was a little too brothy - next time I think I'll only add one cup of water, if that. Chipotle ...
