The popularity of Mexican food is undeniable! And not surprisingly so because aside from the fact that it contains fresh ingredients from all food groups, it’s also powerfully and uniquely flavored with Mexican spices. And it doesn’t hurt that Mexican food is quite affordable, too. And since there is an obvious demand for it, you […]
Fajitas first came into existence when Mexican ranch workers in West Texas during the 1930s and 1940s were partially paid with meat. Naturally, they have to come up with a decent steak-based dish using these least desirable cow parts, particularly the skirt steak. They ended up tenderizing the skirt steak with a long marinating process […]
When it comes to Tex-Mex food, beefy, cheesy, and spicy are distinctive flavors that characterize the cuisine. And yet there is so much more to it than just chili, fajitas, or nachos. There’s a whole culture and history behind it. Tex-Mex cuisine evolved out from Tejano culture (Texans of Mexican heritage) and the Northern Mexican […]
Many people think that Mexican cuisine is simply TexMex food but it’s actually different and is more than just beef and nachos. Real Mexican food is a diverse mix of Aztec, Mayan, and Iberian cuisines, which makes authentic Mexican cookbooks such a powerful idea. The food itself is the result of the intermingling of traditional […]

Sous vide is often used for cooking meat, particularly steak. But, the technique is so much more versatile than most people assume. As a result, it can be used for many different types of dishes, including Mexican meals and dishes that use Mexican flavors. For that matter, many Mexican-inspired dishes use ingredients that naturally work […]
This Mexican classic is yet another of those simple dishes that remind us how patience in the kitchen can yield truly rewarding results. In my opinion, no fancy fusion-type cuisine could ever beat slow-cooked, home-prepared comfort food. Literally translating to “little pieces of meat”, the succulence and pull-apart tenderness of pork carnitas can only be […]
After the massive success of my slow cooker Mexican breakfast casserole, I thought I’d try to make another recipe with corn tortillas. I dunno, it’s something about the corn tortillas soaked in juices that make me think of delicious tamales. So I started with the basic idea of enchiladas this time and adapted it for the slow cooker.
this is one of my all time favorite slow cooker recipes. I got the idea to make a Mexican lasagna (which is still coming), but as I was listing the ingredients it started to sound more and more like a Tex-Mex breakfast. Boom. Mexican breakfast lasagna…ok, sounds better as casserole, so that’s what I named it. I always love to make things simple. So we’re just going to combine the liquid ingredients in one bowl, and the solid ingredients in another. That means milk and eggs in one, and everything else in the other (except the tortillas).
There are few things I love more than delicious tacos on corn tortillas! My family grew up so close to the Mexican border, that we always had a special place in our hearts for the delicious cuisine of that region. The important focus is always on fresh ingredients, and since that region tends to be warmer there is a long growing season to support delicious fresh produce a large part of the year.
