Mexican Food

Mexican Food, who doesn’t love it? Spicy, cheesy, and bursting with flavor; Mexican food is hard to resist. It also happens to be my husband, Scott’s favorite kind of food. I often joke that he should have married a Mexican woman instead of an Assyrian one.

Lucky for him, this Assyrian girl knows how to cook food from any region he desires! However, living in San Diego for the last 34 years has taught me a lot about this delicious cuisine. The advantage is in knowing what REAL Mexican food should taste like. Using this knowledge has really helped in creating these recipes.

So if you love spicy Roasted Tomatillo Salsa or a good Breakfast Burrito, you’ll want to camp out here for a little bit. While here, make sure you check out my Mexican Lasagna, and Spicy Pickled Carrots too!

Creamy Guacamole, as the name suggests, is perfectly smooth, and chunk-free. Although I love chunky guacamole, the kind full of tomatoes, diced onions, garlic, and cilantro, sometimes I crave the silky consistency of this Creamy Guacamole Recipe.
