When my 3 yr old announced “I love chili”, it quickly became a staple on our dinner table; as the options that she “loves” are pretty limited. While, I’d say that homemade chili is actually pretty good for you, I started making turkey chili, which is a bit lighter and healthily than traditional beef or pork. And best of all, because chili is such a rich recipe, with so many different op

Ribeye steak, is one of my absolute favorites. In fact, I’ve often heard them called “the chefs cut”, because the pro’s prefer them for their great marbling which brings both more flavor and a very tender texture to the meat. These Certified Steak Ribeyes deliver on all points, and I loved making them.

This recipe for Spanish Rice is simple to make, easy to modify, and tastes wonderful. I love to make it just about any time I’m doing fajitas or tacos, but it’s also a great side dish for simple chicken dishes, or even with fish.

The hardest thing about publishing a recipe for Chili Con Carne, is that there is no ONE recipe for chili con carne! It’s one of those recipes, that is so customizable, it’s almost more a collection of loose techniques, or even a style of cooking, rather than a specific recipe. I even change my recipe just about every time I cook it.

Here, I’ve got a great, simple, Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe, that’s for some reason seems common enough in d

I think I was at a taco truck when I had my first taste of authentic Carnitas. For those who haven’t had carnitas, it is pork (generally a tougher cut like shoulder) slowly braised or roasted until the meat is fork tender and succulent. But that’s not the end. The meat is then either fried or broiled, so that the outsides crisp up and some more of the fat renders ou

If you look, you’ll find quite a few salsas on this site. I love them, and many goto salsa versions and am always looking for more. Here I show you how to make a simple corn salsa – one of my favorites. Obviously you can use a salsa like this on tacos, and other Mexican food (and I do use it that way), but it’s versatile enough to use with a perfectly cooked piece of chicken, po

Fajitas are pretty easy to make, and they are crazy delicious...when cooked well. Cooked well to me means the meat packs a ton of flavor and is not overcooked. The vegetables are nicely caramelized, and still have a bit of a bite. I love this kinds of food, and I'm making some version of fajitas, tacos, quesadillas, etc, in my kitchen at least a couple times a month. Chicken, i

Tacos are good food. In some form or another, I probably make tacos at least every couple weeks. I love the fact that in addition to changing up the main ingredients (chicken, steak, fish, shrimp, etc) you can add new toppings, and of course, different spices. In this recipe video, I show you how to make my version of an Adobo steak taco. The adobo marinade is heav

I love a good Tex-Mex meal, and near the top of the list for me are steak fajitas. Since I was a kid, I’ve loved those sizzling plates of chicken or steak, onions and peppers; and making them at home can be really simple. Fajitas (steak, chicken, shrimp) make a great option for parties, as they are great crowd food, forcing people to be a bit interactive as they build their own
