Slow Cooker Barbacoa

Slow Cooker Barbacoa

My favorite thing to eat when we order at Chipotle is their barbacoa. I love their flavorful shredded beef. I’m thrilled to be able to make it at home, with hardly any work! Never had barbacoa before? You’re missing out, and we can fix that…

Mexican Soup

Mexican Soup

I’ve been making some version of this Mexican Soup for almost 15 years now. It’s easy, inexpensive, healthy, and satisfying – and the perfect thing to make from leftovers, too! I call this “Mexican Soup,” but it’s rather inauthentic. It’s loosely based on tortilla soup,…

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

So far, January cooking is going well. I tried out my mom’s meatball recipe (would you believe I haven’t made plain meatballs before?) and it turned out well. For my second Cook90 dinner, I made this Chicken Enchilada Soup in the slow cooker. It’s super-cold in…

Tres Leches Cake

Tres Leches Cake

When I decided to have a small Cinco de Mayo party this year, I decided to try a new recipe for Tres Leches Cake. (Or maybe I had a Cinco de Mayo party this year because I wanted to try the recipe. Sometimes it’s hard to tell.)

Fajitas

I finally have a favorite recipe for fajitas! It’s delicious, fast, and incredibly easy to make.

Kung Pao Chicken Tacos

Kung Pao Chicken Tacos

I’m going to complain about a rather tasty dinner I made. Yes, complain. Because although Kung Pao Chicken Tacos were tasty, it was an awful lot of prep for 5 minutes of eating dinner. I know that I’m the person who makes her own vanilla…

Black Bean Soup

Black Bean Soup

My friend Theresa had a favorite recipe for black bean soup to share with me before I left my job last October. In an effort to eat healthily (and inexpensively – beans are cheap!), I decided I would go ahead and try it! Although the…

Homesick Texan Carnitas

Homesick Texan Carnitas

Carnitas are delicious! That said, my experience with them at restaurants was hit-or-miss – sometimes they were good, and sometimes they weren’t. The delicious experiences stuck with me, though, so I was excited when Deb at Smitten Kitchen posted about Homesick Texan Carnitas. This recipe…

Pan de Muerto Bones

Pan de Muerto Bones

I enjoy baking, and it seemed like if I were going to make bread that was shaped like bones (and wasn’t intended to be a dog biscuit or a cookie for a dog-themed party), the appropriate time would be before Halloween. Pan de Muerto Bones…
