Easy Chicken Nachos

In all honesty, I think my daughter is more Mexican than Panamanianā€¦ At least when it comes to food. Otherwise, she loves Panama as if she was born and had lived there. I guess it’s just that magical of a place – yes, I’m totally trying to persuade you to plan a trip there and then come back to tell me all about it. šŸ˜‰

Back to food. She loves tacos and every Tuesday says, “Mami, it’s Taco Tuesday!” I love tacos too but I don’t want to eat them on a weekly basisā€¦ Instead of Tacos, I offered to make nachos – my husband’s idea – and she gladly accepted. Not to say that she runs things around hereā€¦ But sometimes she wins, especially when I don’t have dinner pre-planned.

I came up with some delicious and super easy chicken nachos, using ingredients that I mostly had. On the Border Monterey Jack Queso, Tostitos hint of lime chips, Two chicken breasts, adobo, corn, and jalapeƱos.

Salmon is one of my favorite meals to prepare. I’ll admit that while in Georgia visiting my parents, I haven’t cooked much. I’m spoiled, I know. šŸ™‚ So, I thought I could give my mom a break from the kitchen at least for a day and decided to make my salmon recipe for dinner.

First, I lined a baking sheet with foil paper, sprayed it with olive oil and set aside. Then I rinsed the salmon with cold water, seasoned with parsley, rosemary garlic and red pepper flakes.

Quick and Easy Empanadas

Quick and Easy Empanadas

Being a Latina, I obviously grew up on arroz con pollo, flan, and empanadas; just to name a few. While my mother taught me to make flour empanadas from scratch, sometimes you want to take the quick route.

Using Goya’s discos para empanadas, allowed me to make something tasty while savoring flavors that took me all the way back home to Panama.
