I love fast, easy to make dishes now more than ever since we’ve added to our family. I also love customization. As a vegetarian who is married to a non-vegetarian, it is key to have meals that we can customize to our own preferences. In this case, we went vegetarian on these crispy tostadas. However, you can easily add meat to these or more veggies. This dish is truly adaptable to whatever you feel like! Not to mention it only takes about 10-15 minutes from oven to table!

Sometimes I just want a no-fuss, easy side dish for meals. I love cooking, but sometimes I get lazy. So, for “Mexican night,” I needed a simple side dish. I’m a huge fan of Mexican rice, so that seemed to be a perfect side dish. I have made a Mexican Rice Casserole before, but it requires slightly more work than I wanted to do. So, I decided to make a simplified Mexican rice side dish. This is so easy you only need one pot!
Sometimes I have to admit that I get bored with very simple recipes. I’m not saying they aren’t delicious in their own right, but occasionally I get bored and feel the need to jazz up my recipes. So, you may know I love Mexican food, in particular enchiladas. I usually order cheese enchiladas from any Mexican restaurant I go to. I also have a recipe on here for Skinny Cheese Enchiladas. Don’t get me wrong, I love cheese enchiladas. But even Samuel and I agree that sometimes those get boring.
A few weeks ago Samuel and I were watching a food show, big surprise as I love food shows. Well, this time the feature of the show was empanadas. I’ll preface this post by saying I’ve never made empanadas before. After watching the show, it was kindly suggested I try to make empanadas sometime soon. So I did some research on empanandas.
I am a fan of one pot meals. I’ve made one other on this blog, One Pot Garlic and White Cheddar Pasta, and it was tasty. One pot meals are wonderful because you cook everything in one pot. This makes doing dishes very easy. It also makes making dinner easy. So in the spirit of one pot dishes, I wanted to do one without pasta. I decided to make a dish that is hearty and delicious.
Merry Christmas! I hope this post finds you eating some delicious treats and spending time with loved ones. This may seem like an odd post for Christmas, but I think all food is perfect during the holidays. One of the most comforting foods, to me, is pasta. Pasta is one of my favorite foods. I especially love it in casseroles when it is melty and cheesy. This recipe does just that!
Soup Sunday made its return this weekend at my house. Last Sunday, I was going to make one of my favorite soups, but some things came up so Soup Sunday was postponed. Now it’s back! I try to mix up soups so we try new ones, like when I made Creamy Cauliflower Soup, and old favorites. Well, it was time for an old favorite this week. This soup is one of the easiest, cheapest, and most delicious soups you can make. Please give a warm welcome to my Crock Pot Taco Soup!
One of my favorite foods is cheese. Saying I love cheese is an understatement. Cheese is one of my food groups. You know what else I love? Mexican food. I love the subtle spicy flavors that Mexican food has. It just so happens that cheese and Mexican food go perfect together. When I go out to eat at any Mexican restaurant, there is one item that I usually gravitate to: cheese enchiladas. Can you really go wrong with a tortilla stuffed with bubbly cheese in spicy enchilada sauce? Continue reading
