Fresh & Flavorful Pico de Gallo

Posted by Hallee on Apr 17, 2012 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Mexican, Recipes, Salads, sides, Snacks

My daughter Kaylee LOVES fresh pico de gallo. She’ll sit with a huge bowl of it and a bag of organic tortilla chips and just inhale it. And because of the health benefits to the fresh salsa, I don’t discourage it. With fresh tomatoes, fresh peppers, and fresh onion, the vitamins and minerals can’t be beat. In running the nutritional analysis of the recipe, this is what I discovered. Fresh Pico de Gallo is has no cholesterol, is low in sodium, very high in dietary fiber, high in manganese, high in magnesium, high in niacin, high in phosphorus, very high in potassium, high in thiamin, very high in vitamin A, very high in vitamin B6, and very high in vitamin C.

It’s also REALLY easy. I make it all summer long straight out of my garden.

Fabulous Supper Nachos

Posted by Hallee on Sep 22, 2011 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

My mom found this recipe in a magazine probably thirty years ago. This recipe is AMAZING. I don’ t know exactly what sets it apart from other hot nachos recipes, but something does. You won’t find a better dish to take to a party – this is probably the dish for which I’m most often asked for the recipe. They’re called “Supper Nachos” because they are a meal. They’re a family favorite.

Homemade Refried Beans

Posted by Hallee on Sep 22, 2011 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes, sides

I never realized how easy it was to make refried beans. As much as we love Mexican food, I hate to think about how many cans of beans we’ve gone through. This recipe is great as a side dish or in any recipe that calls for refried beans. This recipe will make 2 cans worth (about 2 pounds).

Taco Dinner

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.

Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Posted by Hallee on Mar 11, 2010 in Breads, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

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.

Exceptional White Chicken Enchiladas

Posted by Hallee on Dec 3, 2009 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

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.

Wholesome White Corn Tortillas

Posted by Hallee on Dec 3, 2009 in Breads, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

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.

Heat-Free Chili

Posted by Hallee on Oct 22, 2009 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Soups

I make a heat-free chili that my children LOVE. They enjoy all of the flavors of chili, but have never enjoyed the heat.
