Taco Meat That Feeds A Crowd (Freezer Friendly)

Taco Meat for a Crowd (or to freeze for later) by @SeededTable

Use this recipe to whip up a ton of taco meat and invite a bunch of friends over for taco night.  Or, portion out in freezer bags so your family dinner is ready on those busy weeknights. We love tacos, as I’m sure many of you do.  We also love easy dinners.  This taco meat […]

Cinnamon Chocolate Pound Cake

7140030785_b9efc672c6

Otherwise known as “Mexican Chocolate Pound Cake”, this just might be the dessert you’re looking to serve this Cinco de Mayo.  But, consider it also as a breakfast option.  Last Saturday morning, during a visit to Starbucks, I ordered their (unfortunately seasonal) Cinnamon Chocolate bread that was very similar to this.  And, yes, I ate […]

Queso Blanco Dip (White Cheese Dip), The Second and Final Attempt

6696646531_3d25963c1c

I did it, I did it!  Actually, I should be yelling “WE did it!”  One year ago I posted a recipe for Queso Blanco, but it didn’t quite match the wonderful, runny restaurant dip that we love oh-so-much.  It was good in taste, but the texture was a little funny and quickly thickened off the […]

Chicken Enchilada Soup

I’m so excited!  Today I’m heading up to San Francisco to meet up with a *bunch* of fellow food bloggers for the 3rd annual Foodbuzz Festival.  We’ll be wining and dining, and attending break-out sessions to learn from the best of the best.  I’ve never been to San Francisco, yet this month I’ll find myself […]

Fried Ice Cream

In the last two weeks, I’ve been in eight different states and hosted two baby showers.  Traveling is taking its toll on me, but at the same time I’m enjoying every minute.  Before leaving, I had BIG intentions on scheduling posts for you while I was gone so we wouldn’t miss a beat on this […]

Chipotle Shredded Pork Enchiladas

6011800395_e3fabbc766

Now that I live in Southern California, I’ve been diving into the world of Mexican food.  I’ve shared with you before that I’ve never been a fan, until recently.  Ben is partially responsible for my conversion, but I think the other reason is because I’ve finally been exposed to good Mexican food.  Through-out my childhood […]

Mexican Egg Skillet

You have one more day to plan your Cinco de Mayo menu.  Why not start it off with a simply delicious breakfast and make this Mexican Egg Skillet?  Ben and I would always order from the skillet menu at our favorite breakfast place back in Illinois.  The one we ordered most often included potatoes, ham, […]

Mexican Brownie Bottom Cheesecake

This week we are celebrating Cinco de Mayo (“fifth of May”) which is when everyone likes to use it as an excuse to chow down on some delicious Mexican food.  As I mentioned in the latest “Weekend Garnish” post, I’m a newer fan of Mexican food, so I really do not have a huge index […]

Enchilada Lasagna

5654113924_a3e63881f5

Every so often I come across an old recipe on my blog where I’m guessing the photo makes you quickly click away in disgust.  This was one of those posts.  Although we eat this often in our house, I would always forget to take a new picture of it.  Finally, I remembered!  But, not only […]

Tropical Chicken Quesadillas

5620289085_337fd15e0c

Ben and I love quesadillas, but nothing is more disappointing to us when we see them listed on a menu with a lonely filling of just cheese.  Don’t get me wrong, that simple version can hold up as a decent enough snack, but quesadillas are so much more enjoyable when they are loaded with flavorful […]

Avocado and Mango Salsa

5608278823_b5d3f5d319

I literally just told you on Saturday that I wanted to try this recipe from SkinnyTaste.  Well, guess what?  I tried it yesterday and just couldn’t wait to share it with you.  Typically, the recipes I post are ones I’ve made from at least a week ago.  But, ladies and gentlemen (yes, I do believe […]

Guacamole

5403039383_38864d1da4

Are you ready for the Super Bowl?  I feel like I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but it’s only been in the last year that I started to like guacamole.  Ben has loved it since he was a young boy, and every time he ate it I could not understand why he liked it […]

Green Chile Beef Empanadas

5248040325_ce1aa1269b

The shredded beef I used in these empanadas has become a staple in our house.  It’s so versatile and easy to fix up that I’ve been wanting to put it on the meal plan week after week.  Of course, that’s a bad idea because we do not want to get sick of it, but I […]

Queso Blanco, The First Attempt

5144448197_32b7abf845

Queso Blanco… it’s that yummy white cheese dip that you enjoy at *some* Mexican restaurants.  Ben and I love it, but it’s proven hard to find.  Even more difficult is finding a recipe for it!  I’ve been on the lookout for a few years now, so you can imagine my “hip-hip hooraying” when I saw […]

Pineapple Mango Salsa

It may seem untimely to post such a tropical recipe in the middle of Autumn.  But, I really couldn’t wait any longer to share this with you, and soon another recipe where I used this salsa again.  I made this for the first time last month and wish I had been making it all summer! […]

Shredded Beef Chimichangas

5026789700_f0e40a2e59

Mexican food was never a regular part of my life until Ben also became a regular.  See, my family’s choice restaurant and food was Italian as I was growing up.  I can’t even remember one time when my parents took us out to have Mexican. Enter Ben…whose family adores Mexican food and would often go […]

Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos

Maternity leave has been the best time of my life.  Spending 12 weeks, 24 hours a day, with my new son, Judah, has been such bliss that I can’t believe it is almost over.  It’s flown by, and now I return to my full-time job this Thursday. Not only does this mean less time with […]

Cheesy Chicken “Ben-chiladas”

dsc_6707

I love that Annie’s husband’s name is Ben, too, so that I can also use the name “Ben-chiladas” for this recipe.  You’ll see over at Annie’s Eats that this is one of her “go-to” recipes, so I decided to finally give it a try.  I actually made this about two months ago and forgot to […]

Green Chile Chicken Empanadas

dsc_8514

Thanks to my friend, Emily (who just started a food blog titled Joy of Cooking), dinner tonight was very easy! I used a recipe from her site called Green Chile Beef Empanadas and made a few changes to my tastes. Instead of beef, I used taco flavored shredded chicken (store bought in a tub). It […]
