I love checking out the produce section of specialty stores. I was going through Mi Pueblo, a local latin American grocery store, when the bright pink color of the cranberry bean pods caught my eye. I had to buy some!
I love beets! I love the color, the taste, and they are pretty good for you. This salad is a mixture of earthy, sweet with salty creaminess. It’s the perfect way to enjoy beets for the first time.
While store bought hummus can be nice and a time saver, nothing beats homemade hummus. It’s also pretty fast to make so you should definitely give it a try.
It’s grilling season and I know everyone is cooking wonderful gourmet burgers. The best way to enjoy those burgers is on a wonderful Brioche bun. These buns have more substance which makes them awesome for holding your juicy burger.
Sauerkraut is a facto-fermented food just like kimchi. It has loads of probiotics which makes it amazing for gut health and, like every thing else, homemade always tastes better.
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.
Delicious and juicy braised chicken thighs. I love one pot meals. Toss some ingredients into a pot and awesome things happen. This is an easy recipe that is so adaptable and changeable that you will be able to satisfy any picky eater in your household.
