What Comforts You?

Once again, depending upon which National Calendar you wish to follow, today might just be National Comfort Food Day. On the Foodie scene, it’s also Sacher Torte Day and Rhubarb Vodka Day. The vodka makes sense since on December 5, 1933 Prohibition was repealed. That alone is reason to celebrate.

A Sizzling Soft Taco Day

Today is a special day – not just Taco Day, but Soft Taco Day. While those hard shells do bring a crunch to the table, in our house soft shell tacos rule.

Mexican Brunch on a Plate

Have I mentioned that my absolute favorite meal of the day is breakfast-brunch? Pastries and pancakes and all sorts of wonderful things. If I could eat only once, it would be the morning meal. And if I had it my way, that meal would last all day.

Honoring the Buffalo Soldier

Today is National Buffalo Soldier Day. In 1992 Congress set this day aside to commemorate the formation of the first regular Army regiments of African American soldiers in 1866. Following the Civil War, Congress passed the Army Organization Act, creating six all-black cavalry and infantry regiments. It was the first such creation during peacetime.

Another Taco Tuesday in Paradise

Over the course of our marriage, Hubby has introduced me to a lot of different things. One was an appreciation for Jimmy Buffet. One of the best concerts we’ve attended was a Jimmy Buffet show in Las Vegas.

Cheesy Chorizo Bites

Reality check – these are suppose to be appetizers. However; with all these days running together as they are; today is Tequila Tuesday. As long as we’re having cocktails; why not finger food for supper? I’m thinking serve with Beefy Taquitos and maybe a few Bean Dip Cups.

Make it a Grande Burrito Day!

Did you know that the first Thursday in April is National Burrito Day? Wow – it’s April – finally!! Anyway, according to the National Day Calendar, the best way to observe Burrito Day is to call all your friends and go out for burritos or serve them up at home. The at-home we can handle. Maybe next year, we’ll include friends.

Ro-Tel Tacos on Indian Fry Bread

Have you ever eaten at a Taco Bell? Have you ever tried their Chalupa Taco? If so, this is a lot like the Chalupa Taco. If you search for copy-cat Taco Bell Chalupa recipes, you’ll find them to be nearly identical to Fry Bread.

Nacho Cheese Grilled Chorizo Burritos

A few days after we had enjoyed our very messy Quesadilla Burgers, I stood in the kitchen and wondered what to make for lunch. There are a few stables in our house that are always on hand. Flour Tortillas in a variety of sizes, Nacho Cheese Dip and good Mexican Chorizo.

Spicy Two Meat-Bean Tostadas

What is a tostada but Nachos on a giant tortilla chip? In our house, Nachos are awesome. We have nachos for game night, or just because we like eating with our fingers. So giant nachos with a pitcher of Margarita were perfect for a Tijuana Tuesday.

Beefy Cast Iron Skillet Nachos

This is a cast iron dish that is still a work in progress. I wasn’t even going to share it just yet, especially since I just gave you a No-Bean Nacho recipe last week. After much consideration and debate, I decided to go ahead and share. Maybe you have some ideas that would help this casual skillet supper hit its mark.

Jug Bands and Chorizo Burgers

The first time that I came across the idea of a Chorizo Burger Topped with Shrimp was about a year ago. My guys wanted a weekly burger night, and I wanted to inject a little variety. The weekly burger night idea didn’t last long. It’s not the healthiest of meals and even the best burgers become mundane after a while. So this recipe was tucked away for another day.

Sizzling Hot Chorizo Quesadillas

Some like it hot. If you are among the “bring on the heat” crowd, these quesadillas should do the trick. First, you’ve got good chorizo at the heart of the filling. Then you’ve got a spicy sauce that packs a mean Jalapeno punch. I mean – wow!
