Fish Tacos for Two.


Baja Sauce
  • 1/4 of a red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
  • 2 T. diced onions
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 T. cilantro
  • 1/4 c. mayo
  • 1/4 c. sour cream
  • 2 t. vinegar
  • 1/4 t. black pepper
  • dash of cumin
  1. In a food processor or blender, puree the bell pepper, jalapeno, onions, and garlic until smooth. 
  2. In a small bowl, combine the mayo, sour cream, vinegar, pepper, and cumin. Stir in the pureed vegetable mix. Refrigerate at least 3 hours to allow flavors to combine.

Unfortunately, I do not have a food processor, nor do I have a blender. 
I blame this on the fact that I am unmarried. 
People don't BUY food processors or blenders for themselves... they register for them. 
Maybe one day... But until then- I use my handy little Cuisinart Mini-Prep. Lime Green. Totally cutesy. 
Smells like I'm burning out the motor EVERY time I use it. Eek.
It doesn't really 'puree' so I just hit 'chop' 'grind' 'chop' 'grind' over and over.

Mahi Strips
  • 1 large Mahi-Mahi Fillet, sliced about 1/3" - 1/2" thick
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 t. Fajita Seasoning
  1. Mix the fajita seasoning & flour together. Season the fillet slices with salt and pepper. Coat with fillets slices with the seasoned flour. 
  2. Heat a few tablespoons of canola oil in a medium pan. Once the pan is hot, cook the fish until golden-brown and cooked through. About 4 minutes per side
  3. Drain on paper towels


While cooking the fish, prep the condiments & heat the corn tortillas.
I served mine with:
Quick Pico (Diced Tomato, Scallions & Cilantro)
Shredded White Cheddar
Diced Avocado
Shredded Cabbage
Lime Wedges
& Baja Sauce

Beautiful Man. :)

  1. You seriously cook like this everyday? I didn't even have time to shower today.

  2. It's safe to assume I'm eating DiGiornio pizza or Del Taco the nights I don't post recipes.

The greatest Queso that ever lived.

Ingredients: (And.. 3/4 lbs. ground beef, browned and drained)
Cut the queso into cubes. Throw it into the crockpot. Add the browned and drained ground beef. Add two cans of Rotel (drained) and one can of diced green chiles (undrained). Mix everything together (I know.. not the most attractive..) & melt on low for 2-3 hours, or high for one hour. Once everything is melted, keep the crock pot on low until this happens.
3/4 lbs. lean ground beef, browned and drained*2 lbs. block of Velveeta, cubed2 (10 oz.) cans Rotel (original, mild, or hot- whatever your preference), drained1 (7 oz.) can diced, roasted green chilesCombine all the ingredients in a crock pot. Melt on low until smooth (approx. 2-3 hours) or high (approx. 1 hour). Once melted, keep crockpot on low.*I've also made this with ground turkey and ground elk- each were equally delicious!

Lazy Dessert.

Lemon Meringue Pie & Tiramisu just seemed too ambitious for tonight. So I made...
Lazy Ice Cream Cake. Ingredients: 12 ice cream sandwiches, any flavorIce cream, any flavor- softenedIce cream topping, such as caramel, hot fudge, strawberry, etc.Whipped Topping Line an 8" x 8" pan with saran wrap. Using half the sandwiches, make a single layer. 
Cover the ice cream sandwiches with softened ice cream- try to make an even layer.  I used about 1/3 of a tub of Cookies 'n Cream.
Cover the ice cream with a thin layer of hot fudge. It looks... not beautiful.
Finish the layers off with the remaining ice cream sandwiches.  Throw the pan in the fridge for about an hour so the ice cream can harden.
Once the ice cream has hardened, invert the pan onto the plate you'll serve it from. "Frost" the cake with the whipped topping.
I tried to get fancy and made lines of caramel & chocolate sauce, then dragged a toothpick in alternating directions to create the design. Return the cak…

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Have you ever heard of Engagement Chicken? Supposedly, it's a magical recipe that results in boyfriends wanting to marry their girlfriends. I'm not making this up- it was published in Glamour magazine. It has it's own Wikipedia page. Granted I've never made Engagement Chicken, I don't believe it. I think the real way to a man's heart is through Buffalo Chicken Dip. 
There are two ways to make this- I'm a fan of the crockpot method because the dip can stay warm and its the easiest to transport, but both are equally delicious!
