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

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
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: 4 stars 28
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.

Queso (Cheese) Dip

Rating: 4.5 stars 22
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.

California Roll Salad
Rating: Unrated 144
A delicious, light, spicy salad, excellent for summer cooking! A perfect side to any grilled Asian-style dishes. Wasabi paste may be used instead of the powder if it is more convenient. If you discover you have made the dressing too spicy, adjust by adding more mayonnaise.
Black Ginger Cocktail
Rating: Unrated 2
Fresh blackberries, spiced rum, sweet and sour mix, and a splash of ginger beer make up the refreshing Black Ginger Cocktail. It's the signature cocktail at the Escondite in Los Angeles.
Anaheim Fish Tacos
Rating: 4 stars 158

I created this one to make mouths dance. I love fish tacos, but don't like the fried versions or cabbage. Not really for kids, though - a bit flavorful. Serve with authentic Mexican cheese, sour cream, fresh cilantro, lettuce, and lime.
