I really should start posting these things *before* the holiday...
Anyway, I L.O.V.E. Mexican food! I love to go to Mexican restaurants and I love to cook it (however unauthentic my cooking may be).
I had soft tacos on my menu plan for the week, so I cooked those up using this recipe for the seasoning.
I also cooked my usual Mexican rice...so delicious!
There was a time where I made my own salsa, but have gotten lazy. Hubby requested it the other day, so I whipped up a batch of it. I don't measure anything; I just chop and combine the ingredients and keep taste-testing until it is delicious. This was the first time I threw the ingredients into a food processor to make it less chunky. The ingredients I use are: canned petite diced tomatoes, part of an onion, cilantro (lots!), jalapeno slices (just a few), lime juice (a dash), salt, and garlic powder. Maybe one day I will figure out the measurements and blog the recipe!
I also made the margaritas from scratch using this recipe I found on Pinterest. The recipe makes a gallon, so I used one cup of tequila, converted the other measurements into ounces, and divided by six to make just over two drinks. They were good; Hubby enjoyed it more than I did. I thought it was a little too tart and next time I will be limiting or eliminating the lemon juice from the recipe. As it watered down, I enjoyed it more.
I was very proud of this meal and it was all delicious!
