Carne Asada | Kathy's Kitchen Table My son was ecstatic when I told him we were having Carne Asada for dinner. Well, actually he looked at me like I was crazy and not really speaking English (which I wasn’t). I told him it was basically like a taco. He loves tacos. It’s probably right up there with spaghetti and pizza. So I told him it was like a taco, just with a different kind of meat. He was perfectly content with that description. As long as he could put olives on it. I’ve never understood the green olives as a topping for tacos, but he was happy that he could top his Carne Asada with them! Read the rest of this entry »

Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas | Kathy's Kitchen Table

Let’s start Monday out right and talk about Mexican food, shall we? I’m sure by now you have probably gathered that we love Mexican food. You can see examples of that here, here, here and here. Mexican flavors are so versatile. Sometimes I think I could eat Mexican food everyday of the week and not get tired of it. There are so many different ways you can fix it. These Honey Lime Enchiladas are the perfect example! This flavor combination will absolutely knock your socks off! You won’t be able to stop thinking about it (at least I can’t)! And you will be trying to figure out how soon these can be on the dinner table again.  The chicken that has been cooked in chili powder and garlic is marinated with the honey and lime juice to provide a sweet side to the somewhat spicy chicken. And the cheese is oh so gooey. Read the rest of this entry »

Taco Potatoes | Kathy's Kitchen Table

Here is a new way for you to serve tacos! I have been making these taco potatoes for several years now and they are so delicious. I love tacos (well, anything Mexican for that matter) but I get so tired of serving them the same old way. This recipe is so easy and quick. You can either bake your potatoes in the oven or you can nuke them the microwave. The taco meat mixture comes together quickly and then all you need to do is get your toppings ready. Once you have everything ready all you do is pile it all on top of the potato. It’s kind of like a taco salad on top of a potato! Read the rest of this entry »

Chicken Posole

This is one our favorite meals. My husband always gets excited when he sees that I have purchased a can of hominy from the store because he knows we are having Posole for dinner in the near future. I feel like Super Mom when I make this meal because it is so easy to just dump everything quickly into the slow cooker, it is loaded with vegetables, it’s healthy, and EVERYONE eats it! Another good thing? The only thing you need to do at dinner time for this meal is cook the rice. How easy is that? In my house, the hours of 4:00 – 6:00 pm tend to be a bit crazy so anything to make it easier when it comes to getting on the table is a big help.

As you can probably already tell, my family loves Mexican food. This dish is no exception. The original recipe (any many that you can find online) is a soup, but we like to serve it over rice. My kids tend eat most anything if it has rice under it! The posole is not spicy at all, but feel free to add green chiles to increase the spiciness.

Baked Chicken Taquitos

We love Mexican food in our house! I know when I fix a Mexican type meal, most everyone will eat it. This is one of those meals! These taquitos are creamy and full of Mexican flavors. And the best thing? They are baked and not fried. Any time I can serve my family a healthier version of restaurant favorite is a win in my book!

I have been making this meal for quite some time and have adapted it to fit our tastes. It is highly adaptable! If you need sides to serve with this make sure to check here. I usually serve the rice and black beans with this meal.

I think it is important to have a couple, if not more, recipes that can be made quickly. No matter how well you plan out your meals or your grocery list, inevitably you will have nights where 5:00 rolls around and you are scrambling to find something to make for dinner. This is one meal you can make when it is that time of day and you have no idea what you will be making.

I almost always have all of these ingredients on hand. They are basic and they are simple. But, don’t let that fool you. This dish is incredible. It is healthy, meatless and filling.  And just because this can be a last minute meal, don’t neglect adding it to your menu plan. This is a regular in our house and has saved dinner many a night!

Burrito Bowl

If you like the restaurant Chipotle, or just Mexican style food in general, then this meal is for you.  This Chipotle style burrito bowl is filled with all kinds of good for you veggies and great flavors.  I love Mexican food and we eat it quite often in our house and this is probably one of my favorite Mexican style recipes.  It does take a little work to put together, but I think the end results are worth it!

To assemble this Chipotle Style Burrito Bowl, you need Cilantro Lime Rice, Chili Verde, Black Beans, corn salsa, a good quality salsa, Monteray Jack cheese, lettuce, sour cream and guacamole.  This makes a large bowl or you could also roll it up into a large burrito size tortilla. Feel free to pick and choose what you put in your very own homemade Chipotle Style Burrito Bowl; I enjoyed it all!
