Tacos are one of our fun night meals. The kids can pick something other than milk to drink with dinner, and they have a good time eating it.

I don’t know why I’ve always been intimidated to make flour tortillas. I make corn tortillas all the time. But, maybe I thought that getting the right texture would be hard. This was my first attempt at flour tortillas, and they were perfect. They felt right, they handled right, and they tasted wonderful. I’m so pleased.Pin It
I “stole” this recipe off of Pioneer Woman’s website. When I made it, I used less heat than her, but I have two toddlers to feed and a heat sensitive tween. I personally think the extra peppers and chilies would have made something that was really good just beyond exceptional. The next time I make it, I’m going to use all of the peppers and chilies and use pepper jack cheese, too. So, I’m going to list the ingredients as she listed them, and you can add or remove the peppers and chilies as you need to.Pin It
One day, browsing through the kitchen store, Gregg convinced me that our kitchen was incomplete without a tortilla press. Considering what huge fans we are of any kind of Mexican cuisine, it wasn’t a hard sell. I had it in my gadgets drawer for several months before I remembered to buy the right kind of flour and follow the directions. I cannot tell you how much my family enjoys using these tortillas when we have tacos or enchiladas. They taste wonderful, and you can have the comfort in knowing that they weren’t made in a factory months ago, but that they were made fresh and hot in your kitchen with exactly 3 ingredients.Pin It
One evening, with company arriving less than three hours from the time that I held four frozen solid pieces of chicken in my hands, I decided that white chili was probably the best route to take. So, I plopped them in the big stock pot, covered them with water and proceeded to make white chili. Though a recipe that I put together on the fly with only the ingredients I had on hand, it really ended up tasting quite good.Pin It
