Like We Need An Excuse?

Today is a Three-For Day. Three special days rolled into one. While we’re going to talk about the important of two events for today, we’ll only be able to eat the third.

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.

Impossibly Possible Taco Pie

Impossible pie is oh so fitting for today’s recipe share. As a Catholic, I need to acknowledge that today is the Nativity of Mary. She was the Immaculate Conception, born without sin. Miracles do happen.

Instant Pot Spicy Lime Chicken Tacos

I gotta tell you, every time I use my Instant Pot, I give Hubby a great big kiss. It’s Merry Christmas all over again. Meal prep is so fast. Don’t want fast? That’s okay, it has a slow cooker setting and a saute setting and a rice cooker and the list just goes on and on. I’ve heard tell the Yogurt Setting is perfect for proofing breads. That’s on my to-try list.

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.

Best Darn Taco-Margarita Bar in Town

Let’s start with mixing up our own Taco Seasoning, making our own Chorizo and then putting out a build-it-your-way Taco bar. Who needs restaurants to be open? A restaurant means you have to put on pants, get in the car and drive somewhere. Depending upon where you live and how “open” things are, that could be a long, long drive. Making a Taco Bar at home doesn’t require any of that. Okay, maybe pants would be nice, but not required.

Slow-Simmer Cilantro Chicken Tacos

Have I mentioned that I love – and I do mean L-O-V-E my Instant Pot. It just sits there, on a table in the corner of my kitchen, waiting to hum to life and bring us something delightfully delicious.  You can do everything from saute to bake to pressure cook or slow-cook. It’s a one-stop shop for so many things.

Holy Tuesday Shrimp Tacos

We all love Taco Tuesday, even during Holy Week. In the past, we’ve tried to refrain from any meat during the entire forty days of Lent. Remember, those forty days do not include Sundays. Even during Lent, Sundays are Feast Days of the Lord. How did we do in our quest of No Meat Lenten Season?  Failed. We did stick to the No Meat Friday, but didn’t make it through an entire forty-day abstinence.

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.

Double Wrap Spicy Tacos

When it comes to tacos, are you a hard-crunchy shell type or the soft tortilla fan? Is it corn or flour that gets you excited? Believe it or not, we don’t always have to choose.

Mexican French Bread Tacos

What can I say about French Bread Tacos except to say they are different. Kiddo really enjoyed his tacos. But then again, he had a few Margaritas to go with the tacos, so that might have something to do with it.

Sizzling Hot Rolled Chicken Tacos

These tightly rolled tacos were so easy to make, so packed with flavor and super filling. It’s amazing just how far two boneless chicken breasts can go. If you like heat, use a hot salsa and spicy guacamole. If heat isn’t your thing, go with their milder cousins.

French Bread Taco Boat is a Hit

Those of you who have been following along for a while know that I like to plan my meals out way, way in advance. Usually I put the final touches on the meal planner toward the end of the week for the following week, making little adjustments as needed. When I saw this great idea for a casual meal, I didn’t know where to place it.

Beefy Tacos to the Rescue

One Saturday morning, Hubby and I were going over the week’s shopping list before heading out to the various markets. When the weather is nice, marketing includes a trip to a produce shack up the road for anything we need that we aren’t growing ourselves. Let me tell you, they have some of the best berries in town.

Fiesta Chicken-Chorizo Tacos

These yummy tacos were featured as part of last year’s Cinco de Mayo Feast. While great for the occasion, tacos this good are awesome any time. Can you tell, rather than have a day celebrating all that is Mexican through foods, I’d like to have an entire month dedicated to the exploration of Mexico’s culinary delights. Wouldn’t that be great?
