Chicken quesadillas are such a common food, but there are so many variations of them. Some of them have very unique and (mostly) delicious ingredients, but in this house, we make a fairly simple version, and we really do think it is the best! This recipe for The Best Chicken Quesadillas takes less than 30 minutes to make 4 large quesadillas, and they have a (not so) secret ingredient that really takes them to the next level – the jalapeño mayo. These are great on their own, or with sour cream, salsa, guacamole, aji picante, queso or pico de gallo.
These Chicken Taco Cups are incredibly easy to make, cheesy, flavorful, kid friendly and are made even better by loading them up with all of you favorite toppings.

We like to top ours with some extra hot salsa, sour cream, extra shredded cheese and sometimes cilantro. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
I love making and serving guacamole because it is so quick and easy to make, but it is also loaded with flavor, healthy and low carb. This Fresh Homemade Spicy Guacamole is one of my favorite appetizers to serve at parties or even just to whip up as a quick snack for my family. It’s time to pour some margaritas, grab some chips and dig in!
Today my big girl had her first dress rehearsal for her first dance recital ever. It was such a fun an exciting thing to experience with her. From the costumes, to the hair, to the makeup, she was all girl and all about it. On top of the dress rehearsal, we also had gymnastics and two baseball games today. Add a total of four small kids to that, and you have two very busy and very tired parents. We had a couple hours of down-time, so I wanted to make sure to prepare at least one home-cooked meal for the family. I had some random stuff on hand, and with that I came up with this Mexican Chicken and Biscuits Skillet.
A few years ago, when Instant Pots were all the rage, I gave in and bought one, and then I stuck it in my pantry and kind of forgot about it. To be honest, I was kind of scared of the thing (and I kind of still am). As time has passed, I have gotten pretty comfortable with my Instant Pot, and I have come to understand what is so wonderful about it. These Instant Pot Carnitas are so very easy to make, ultra flavorful and delicious and so much easier and faster to make than the traditional version.
If you are like me – every time you go to a Mexican Restaurant you are ordering queso (and probably the large one). If my husband and I go to any other type of restaurant, we usually spend an eternity trying to force each other to decide what type of appetizer we want to share. If we go to a Mexican place, it is just an unwritten rule – we ARE getting queso. I have been trying for a while to make the perfect white queso dip at home, and it has been really difficult. But today, I finally got it right! I guess it just needed to be Cinco de Mayo for it to work out!
April has just begun and it is already completely crazy in our house. We have a sport or other activity almost every single night, and to avoid eating out constantly, I am trying to plan easy meals that we can come home to. I try to incorporate my slow cooker into my meal planning as much as I can when things get crazy, because I love being able to come home to a delicious meal all ready to go. This Slow Cooker Barbacoa Beef is honestly so easy, so flavorful and can be enjoyed in so many ways. It also has the added bonus of being low-cal and low-carb!
