It’s Tasty Tuesday but also Taco Tuesday, so sharing a Shrimp Tacos recipe seemed appropriate. It had been a while since I had last attempted to make shrimp tacos. And this is by far my most favorite Shrimp Tacos recipe. The true star of today’s recipe is Kroger’s Peppery Sweet Corn Salsa. When I saw it on the shelf, it sounded too delicious to not take home with me. Though, I had not idea what I would do with it, I added it to my cart. While planning meals, I saw it in my pantry and thought it would add the perfect kick to the shrimp tacos I was planning to make.
I wasn’t wrong! This salsa added so much flavor to the shrimp, my husband who is the one from Mexican descent in our home loved them. And he can be as picky as my littles when it comes to food. But if he liked them, I thought the recipe was worth of sharing. I’ll get to the recipe now, I’m sure you’re sitting on the edge of your seat and ready to learn how to make this.
Tacos are a way of life in Texas! Ask anyone who lives here, they’ll agree 😉 Seriously, from breakfast to lunch to dinner, there are so many ways to eat them.
I was never really big on breakfast tacos, but my husband loves and eats them so much, that they kind of grew on me. Though, we have our favorite Taco places here in Houston, sometimes it’s just easier for me to make them at home.
I always try to have tortillas, which I buy fresh from the bakery at Kroger. And other ingredients that I can add to the tortillas too, like eggs and bacon. This is a simple and my personal favorite breakfast taco combination.
But I also like to switch it up. So, I thought I’d try something different and bought some chorizo and frozen Potatoes O’Brien, which are perfectly diced with onions and peppers. This and a few eggs would make delicious breakfast tacos.

Today is all about date night at home. I’ve teamed with four bloggers to bring you some fun and simple date night ideas that you can do at home. Because let’s face it, sometimes it’s hard to get a sitter and have a date night out on the town. So, with these ideas, you can still have a special date night. 😉
My idea consists of trying new recipes. I find that cooking together is great activity to do as a couple. And cooking something new, is almost like going through a trust exercise. My advice is;
- Find a recipe you both want to try
- Shop for ingredients together
- Make the meal together, no excuses…
In all honesty, I think my daughter is more Mexican than Panamanian… 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. 😉
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 basis… Instead of Tacos, I offered to make nachos – my husband’s idea – and she gladly accepted. Not to say that she runs things around here… 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 jalapeños.
Living in Texas has many advantages, one of them is its diverse cuisine. In Panama, we don’t eat many of the Mexican dishes that you find here. So, I learned a lot about Mexican cuisine with my husband – who is of Mexican descent – and by visiting different Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants here in Houston.
Luckily the first time that I decided to make enchiladas, my husband was home; and wiling to teach me how he learned to make them from a cousin.
It’s an easy recipe because you don’t have to make the sauce or tortillas from scratch. Quite frankly, I don’t know if I am that talented. Though, I would not mind trying my hand at it and learning something new.
To make these easy enchiladas, I cooked, seasoned and shredded chicken breasts. Then mixed the shredded chicken with cheese.
