Happy 4th of July Y’all! While I am lucky to be home with the girls, my husband had to work. But the good thing is that he gets off work really early. 🙂
And even though we haven’t really made plans for tonight, I thought it would be nice to at least start our day off with something fun. What’s more fun than 4th of July inspired pancakes from scratch?!
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. 🙂 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.
I think we’re back to our normal schedule… So here’s another easy recipe! Taco Bowls with Old El Paso’s Taco Boats Flour Tortillas. I’ll be honest the first time I saw these, I thought’ “why not just use regular tortillas.” I bought them anyway because I had a crowd at home, and it seemed like the perfect quick meal to feed everyone. We liked them so much, that I have made a few variations since.
The one that I am sharing today is with ground beef. If you have visited my blog before, you know that I am all about delicious but quick meals. If this is your first time visiting, make sure to check out previous recipes. 😉 Now, on to the instructions…
Making the Taco Bowls
First, I set the rice to make. Then sautéed onions and jalapeños, mixed in beef and taco seasoning; cooking until browned. I lowered the heat and added the salsa, making sure to mix it well. Then, heated the taco boats according to the package instructions.
Chicken wings are a must have here at home. They’re super easy to make, so I make them about once a month. And they don’t need to be thawed out which is great. If I haven’t decided what to make for dinner on any given day, I can take these out of the freezer and have them ready in under an hour.
While browsing around Pinterest I found this Cajun Chicken Wings recipe and decided to give it a try. It was delicious by the way.
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.
