This is definitely not your typical ground beef taco! This dish is made with juicy skirt steak and cooked the way you like. You can get arrachera from a street vendor or in a restaurant in Mexico.
Delicious soft flour tortillas can be made at home too. They take a little longer, make a little mess, and require some more effort but they are delicious. This recipe make twenty so it’s enough for some tacos and then I use the rest to make freezer burritos.

Chilaquiles is a corn tortilla and chicken dish served for breakfast in Mexico. It’s sort of like nachos. The sauce can be anything from salsa verde to a red sauce. This recipe happens to be a super spicy sauce from a restaurant called Toks. Their dish was called Chilaquiles Mayas and I loved it.
There is nothing like homemade corn tortillas. These also freeze well so make plenty ahead and put some in the freezer for when you need them.
When hubby is away I get to enjoy all my funky and spicy foods like this soondubu kimchi jjigae which is Korean soft tofu kimchi stew.
Want to spice up your roast chicken? You should try this recipe! The Chinese five spice rub gives the perfect touch of aromatics while the sticky sweet chili sauce wakes up the taste buds.
Even after making fresh strawberry jam earlier this week we still have quite a few strawberries left for other yummy things like strawberry ice cream. Nothing beats homemade ice cream.
Nothing beats homemade jam. You can taste the freshness of the berries and it’s not that synthetic flavor that you get from most store bought jams and jellies. I also love the chunky fruit in it when I spread it across some homemade bread or a scone.
