Mexican Beef Supreme

Rating: 4.5 stars 234
My boyfriend is from Mexico and he whipped this up one night and it turned out great. Beef, onions, garlic and peppers cooked in a delicious salsa verde sauce. Serve with rice, beans and tortillas. You may also add some sour cream to the sauce to make it creamier or add it after as a garnish.

Quick and Easy Shrimp Fajitas

Rating: 4.5 stars 174

Enchilada Meatballs
