This recipe for Spanish Rice is simple to make, easy to modify, and tastes wonderful. I love to make it just about any time I’m doing fajitas or tacos, but it’s also a great side dish for simple chicken dishes, or even with fish.

Some recipes you make because they taste great. Some recipes you make simply because they remind you of your childhood. This recipe for ground beef tacos is both. As a kid, taco night was about every two weeks or so, and I loved it. It wasn’t until much later, I learned my mom’s version was a less than authentic, clearly Mexican-American, version. For years, I made more traditional chicken
I never get tired of making soups, because frankly, there is a different, easy and very tasty soup recipe you can make very day. Even even the most tried and true soup recipes, are generally flexible enough for you to add seasonal ingredients or other twists to keep them interesting. Here, I’ve got a great, simple, Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe, that’s for some reason seems common enough in d
I think I was at a taco truck when I had my first taste of authentic Carnitas. For those who haven’t had carnitas, it is pork (generally a tougher cut like shoulder) slowly braised or roasted until the meat is fork tender and succulent. But that’s not the end. The meat is then either fried or broiled, so that the outsides crisp up and some more of the fat renders ou
While a simple green salad is always a “nice” option, I love to find new and interesting ingredients that really make a salad something special. For this recipe, I show you how to make a Jicama and Apple salad, served over some butter lettuce, that has a huge variety of flavors and textures. Those flavors and textures, enable the salad to really stands up as substantial portion o
If you look, you’ll find quite a few salsas on this site. I love them, and many goto salsa versions and am always looking for more. Here I show you how to make a simple corn salsa – one of my favorites. Obviously you can use a salsa like this on tacos, and other Mexican food (and I do use it that way), but it’s versatile enough to use with a perfectly cooked piece of chicken, po
Quick salsas are a great way to “dress up” a dish with both flavor and very cool presentations. They are so easy to make and there are almost no rules…so you can make them out of whatever ingredients, for whatever occasion you like. I love using apples in savory cooking, and in this recipe video for Apple and Black Bean Salsa, which is light, crunchy and flavorful. The apple brings a really
Tacos are good food. In some form or another, I probably make tacos at least every couple weeks. I love the fact that in addition to changing up the main ingredients (chicken, steak, fish, shrimp, etc) you can add new toppings, and of course, different spices. In this recipe video, I show you how to make my version of an Adobo steak taco. The adobo marinade is heav
I love a good Tex-Mex meal, and near the top of the list for me are steak fajitas. Since I was a kid, I’ve loved those sizzling plates of chicken or steak, onions and peppers; and making them at home can be really simple. Fajitas (steak, chicken, shrimp) make a great option for parties, as they are great crowd food, forcing people to be a bit interactive as they build their own
Here is a quick recipe for a delicious corn and tomato salsa that I use frequently with tacos (both steak and chicken), but also goes great with fish and chicken as a side dish, or sauce. During late summer with both the corn and tomatoes are at their peak this is perfect cool accompaniment to so many things.
