    I have found that I can make Chicken Fajitas almost as good at home as they can as the rest rants.

    Just get a package of Fajita mix from the store and mix in your favorite vegetables and ckin.

    Take some chalupa shells, smear with canned refried beans, top with shredded cheese, sliced jalapenos, and bake in the oven until cheese melts. Add some shredded lettuce and tomato. Enjoy your chalupas. ;g

    Quick and Easy Dip

    It only takes about 15 minutes to make this stuff. It is not authentic Mexican, but hey, eat it up, then Vaya con Dion, señor (or (señora.)

    Fry up about a pound of ground beef. Melt some Velveeta (The spicy Mexican variety works good)in the microwave. Stir beef into the Velveeta. Pour some of your favorite salsa in there. Heat up some more, then stir until everything is mixed well. It is good just like that, but can go ahead and season to your taste. I use tabasco and Pickapeppa sauce.

    Tell me, how do you get the tomatoes cooked like the Mexican places do? Mine always get mushy but still taste good. They just ain't purdy:(

    You need to use really firm tomatoes (even a little under ripe). Also, don't cook them for long and make sure the plancha or cast iron skillet (you do use one don't you ;)) is very hot.

    i make fried catfish tacos...they are a success with my friends and family...


    i cut my catfish into 1" x 4" strips and i dip them in egg and then into seasoned cornmeal and fry until golden brown.


    i always use soft corn tortillas which i wrap in aluminum foil and heat in the oven for about 15 minutes at 300 degrees.

    next is the important part. get a cup of sourcream and add a teaspoon of finely ground cayenne pepper and mix well.

    squeeze a little lime juice over the catfish fingers and make tacos.

    add shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, and guacamole and you will never go back to ground beef.

    put the catfish in the tortilla first and put a spoonful of the sourcream right on the fish and build your taco from there.
    i like a hot habenero sauce too

  17. Carne Asada tacos

    flank or skirt steak
    3 tbsp garlic powder
    alittle bit of canola oil
    2 tbsp finely ground oregano ( optional )
    1/4 cup fresh lemon or lime juice
    1 large white onion,
    Hand full of chopped cilantro
    Salt and pepper
    dozen steamed hot flour tortillas


    Cut steak into small piece or chop. grill steak along with fresh squeeze juice ( limon or Lime ) add salt & pepper with chopped onions and cilantro.

    Wrap mixture in double layer of thin flour tortilla.

    For the salsa;

    4-8 small tomatoes ( Tomatillos ) use green for green salsa or red for red.
    2 sml Jalapeno
    2 chopped fine garlic cloves
    2 small yellow chop onions
    1 tsp cayenne pepper
    salt
    optional ( chopped cilantro )

    1 tbs crushed red peppers

    Remove stems & husks from all tomatoes and peppers.

    Cut the piece to fit a small blender and mix all items and blend slowly till you have the correct thickness.

    HINT: You adjust heat of the salsa by adding or reducing peppers


    {i make fried catfish tacos...they are a success with my friends and family...}

    Seriously when did catfish tacos become mexican food? I guess next Taco Bell is mexican food?

    ;g

    {Tell me, how do you get the tomatoes cooked like the Mexican places do? Mine always get mushy but still taste good. They just ain't purdy }

    HINT: use semi-ripe Tomatillos, that's the correct tomatoe to use in most Tex-Mex food that is easier to cook with and more forgiving.Most Mexican dish in Mexico use this style tomatoes vrs the traditional vine ripen tomatoes that you see in most gringos stores. So take a trip to a Latino Market and pick a firm tomatillo that shows no physical damage and use them. If they are not ripe you can store them for longer periods prior to use. The husk also keeps them protected till use.

    Glockerel Got Mojo?

    1 lb. jalapenos, sliced in half lengthwise, seeded. Remove veins too if you can't take the heat.

    Filling:
    Combine in bowl

    1 block cream cheese, softened
    3/4 sup shredded cheddar cheese
    5 gr. onions, sliced thinly
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp chili powder
    5 slices crisp bacon, crumbled
    salt and pepper to taste

    Topping:
    bread crumbs
    cooking oil spray


    Using a butter knife, fill the pepper cavities with enough filling so it just is over opening's height.
    Press the filling side into the bread crumbs. Place on cookie sheet.
    Spray top of filled peppers with cooking spray.
    Bake in a preheated 350f oven for about 20 minutes.
    The longer you bake them, the softer and milder they are.
    I like them still slightly crispy and HOT!

    Chili Rellenos:

    Poblano chilis, remove seeds, but maintain a hollow chili pepper.
    Monterey jack cheese
    olive oil
    egg yolks
    Flour for dusting
    fresh limes
    egg whites
    Green onion, chopped for garnish
    Fresh cilantro, chopped for garnish
    vegetable oil for frying

    In a large bowl, marinate jack cheese in olive oil and lots of fresh limes. Toss the lime pieces into the bowl. Chill for several hours.

    When you are ready to eat, stuff wedges of the marinated cheese into the hollowed out peppers.

    Whip the (cold bowl and whites) egg whites until stiff peaks form. Roll stuffed peppers in egg yolks and dust with flour. Then, roll floured peppers into the egg whites and immediately drop into a frying pan with hot oil.

    Fry a few at a time, until golden brown and remove quickly and place on paper towels.

    Garnish with green onion and chopped cilantro and serve immediately. (Note: cheese should be melted inside peppers)

    EVERY mexican dish consists of meat, vegetables, cheese and some sort of sauce with some sort of tortilla shell. ;f ;f ;f
