Taco Spaghetti


Updated: 7-16-2017 I have been going back and revisiting some of the dishes my family loved that we have not had in quite awhile. This dish we had back in 2013 and when I made it again this weekend my family remembered how much they loved it! I have been hearing of Spaghetti Tacos for…

Karami Salsas and Creamy Shrimp Enchiladas


Karami Salsa* sent me two jars of their Japanese salsa to try. I went on their website Karamisalsa.com (click for link to website) to find out more about the company and the product. The first thing I liked was the ingredient list: roasted green chili, organic teppei blue agave, organic gluten-free tamari, garlic, citric acid. That…

Slow Cooker Mexican Spiced Boneless Pork Ribs


We’re having a heat wave!  Well, it really is 10 degrees out but the sun is shining!  That makes all the difference in the world.  Everyone I have met today seems in a good mood.  Usually people have their heads bowed and their hands shoved in their pockets and are doing the quick shuffle as…

Taco Hot Dogs


This was a fun meal that turned out much better than I thought it would.  A few weeks ago our local grocery store had a sale on all beef hot dogs.  So, of course I bought four packages (won’t be on sale again for 4-6 weeks!).  Then I had to think of ways to make…

Mexican Casserole – Cinco de Mayo


We spent the last weekend in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at two Irish Dance Feis.  We had been once before but only for one night.  This time we spent two nights and had a bit of time to explore.  We ended up at a German Beer Haus that was wonderful.  Long family style tables with great beer…

Taco Pizza


Gahhhh!  It’s been one of those days.  My computer has refused to connect to the internet until now.  Our whole house is wireless, which I love sometimes.  But, then there are days like these when it all goes fzzzzt.  Ugh! So, I am just getting around to posting – in between picking up a child…

Individual Layered Mexican Pizzas


We needed something really quick and easy for dinner tonight that would travel fairly well for our “To-Go” meals.  I still have lots of ground beef to use and had left over cheese sauce from last night’s dinner that I really wanted to use in something.  I hate throwing food away and am always looking…

Tater Tot Taco Casserole


So lately dinner has been taking a “surprise” meat, I didn’t label anything in the freezer (oops) and we are in the process of cleaning out the freezer and pantry by eating only from them for a few weeks, no new groceries except for fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs and milk; then opening it the next…

Salsa Chicken Nachos


I used the leftover Slow Cooker Salsa chicken from dinner last night to make nachos for tonight.  I spread a bag of tortilla chips on a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil.  Sprinkled the shredded chicken over the tortillas and then covered with a 16 oz. bag of Mexican Mix Cheese. Bake in a 350…

Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken


This recipe turned out much differently than I thought it would.  I let it cook for quite awhile as we had things to do and it ended up cooking about an hour or two past the time it was done.  It was still very tasty but most of the liquid had been absorbed so it…

Cheese Quesadillas


After grocery shopping today I had planned on making Pasta with Shrimp in Vodka Sauce.  By 4:30 pm my plans had changed.  When I asked the kids if they would mind if I changed the meal they both answered, “Quesadillas sound so much easier.” I love this meal because it is so simple.  I can…
