I’m so glad ya’ll like the peanut butter banana chocolate cake-cookie recipe too – mmmmm yummmm!
Well after a quick stop yesterday afternoon at ¿Qué Pasa?, a local Latino Festival, we spent the evening like this in la casa de Fanatic 😉
She so has a career in show-bizzzz, don’t ya think? LOL.
P.S. Tasted some Goya Coconut Soda as well as lime icecream there which were more than refreshing on a 98F September afternoon!
For dinner, I whipped up a Mexican inspired recipe that was an idea of one of my best friends Kristine – who I always trust when it comes to cooking, she can make some great food ya’ll!
And seriously, I would have never thought to make this but I’m so glad I finally tried it! 🙂
Not-So-Chorizo Soft Tacos
We had to make a quick stop off for the ingredients, and since ‘you-know-who’ isn’t the most patient with grocery shopping we just had to stick with this Aidells Cajun Style Andouille in place of chorizo since a stop at another store just wasn’t in the cards…
Hence the “not-so-chorizo” title 😛
I was cool with it though since these bad boys are made from pork raised without hormones, plus tasted great.
I simply sliced and browned them stovetop until warmed though, skins removed. While they were cooking I chopped up all the veggies.
Served taco-bar style with soft flour tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, salsa, shredded cheddar and hot sauce of course 😛
These were such a different take on the soft taco and both The Man and I loved them!
Mine. All mine.
The Cajun andouille was a great spicy stand-in, but next time I’m going to be on the hunt for some authentic chorizo to make these bad boys!
As a side dish I cooked up some of the fresh farmer’s market green beans I had gotten earlier in the day.
Steamed in a saucepan (covered) using chicken broth with some onion, jalapeno and tomatoes (add at the last minute) plus salt & pepper, this was a lovely side dish!
Not one to dive into the first bowl of green beans I see (I’ll admit they aren’t my #1) – this batch o’ beans I got at the market was top notch and I actually ate them for both lunch and dinner yesterday?! Who am I?!
Topped off with a glorious 9 hours of sleep and awoken by raindrops on the window (we haven’t had rain in weeks) it was definitely a most relaxing weekend 🙂
Hope ya’ll had a good one too!
