Spicy Beef Fajitas

Traditional fajitas with a colorful twist of flavor. Feel free to garnish with cheese, sour cream, salsa, etc. when serving. I use thick flour tortillas warmed in the oven, Mexican queso, and crema fresca.

Roasted Pepper-Avocado Salsa

This refreshing salsa is a must at all our family cookouts. It's great with tortilla chips, served over meats, or on salads.

Stuffed Bell Peppers, Greek Style

Rating: Unrated
When I was very young, my grandparents frequently took us to eat at a cafeteria in North Hollywood, CA. I liked -- no I loved -- only one dish. It was their stuffed bell peppers. Part of what made them unique was their juices and sauce: it was tomato based but very translucent with a slightly sweet and tangy taste. I have yet to recreate the sauce but have developed a substitute which isn't too bad. However, I have in fact finally made the stuffing taste just like I remember it. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does.

Habanero Hellfire Chili

Tasty chili whose name says it all! Note: Whole Anaheim peppers are not widely available; this ingredient is optional, and you can use hot pepper sauce instead.

Queso (Cheese) Dip

Rating: Unrated
This is the best queso dip! Being from Texas, I know my queso, and I think this is the one that beats them all! It's full of flavor and all fresh ingredients. You can substitute half-and-half for the heavy whipping cream, if desired. Serve with tortilla chips.

Chicken Stuffed Peppers with Enchilada Sauce

Rating: Unrated
My wife and I came up with this recipe on a whim. It has since become one of our family's favorite recipes. I feel I must warn you though, once you make this for your family you will likely be making it again and again. Enjoy! Whatever green peppers you decide to use, make sure they are at least 6 inches long and 3 inches wide.

Paleo Mexican Pulled Pork

Rating: Unrated
The great thing about this recipe is that you can prepare everything the night before and just throw it in the slow cooker in the morning on your way out the door. When you get home you will have dinner waiting for you and your house will smell delicious! If you like extra spice then increase the amount of chili powder and cayenne pepper. Serve with your favorite hot sauce.
