Taco Salad Bowls

Is there anything more summery than a super colourful and fresh salad? Today’s recipe is from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. You know I love Mexican food so having all the flavours of a delicious taco in the form of a salad is a perfect way to go! This was one of the most colourful salads…

Homemade Tortillas + Fish Tacos

If you haven’t seen my last post, the Lemon Butter Tilapia (link here), I highly suggest you do. It was such a good fish preparation. I had a couple pieces leftover the next day so instead of just eating it as is, I made some tacos! You can use any proteins in tacos, it’s a…

Lentil Taco Salad

I’m all about eating non-boring salads. One great way to ensure a good salad is by filling it with lots of ingredients, so obviously you need to have more than just lettuce. Mexican food is one of my favourite cuisines to cook, but sometimes I don’t want to eat something heavy like a burrito. So…

Recipe #75: Fresh Taco Salad with Creamy Avocado-Lime Dressing

Here I am, post #75 and I have finally cooked the recipe that’s on the cover of the book! It may have taken a while but the wait has been worth it. I mean, it’s not like I’ve been making other delicious recipes in the meantime πŸ˜› I love tacos and putting all those yummy…

Scrambled Egg Breakfast Tacos

If you’re tired of the same old breakfasts, you should turn your scrambled eggs into tacos! Who doesn’t love the sound of that?! You can now have tacos for any meal of the day πŸ™‚ The idea came from just having leftover mini tortillas. At first I thought about making little crispy tortilla bowls then…

Stuffed Zucchini Boats

This last zucchini recipe might be my fave. Using zucchini as a receptacle/ boat is such a fun idea and you could put whatever you want inside. I scooped out the “guts” and actually chopped it up and put it in my filling too, so there was no waste. For my filling, I made like…

Recipe #69: Fabulous Fish Tacos

Yes, they were fabulous. I love a good fish taco and these tacos hit the spot. The fish was yum. The mango salsa was yum. The lime mayo was yum. Each component was delicious but then all together in a (whole wheat) tortilla, everything was better. Let’s break it down though. The fish – I…

Recipe #63: Wonton Taco Cups

All the recipes this week (and from the whole book) were super good, but I think this one has taken the cake.. until this point at least. There was nothing complicated or super fancy about this dish, but it just tasted so good and my family couldn’t stop saying how much they were enjoying it….

Salmon Tacos

Yummy yummy tacos. Soft tacos > hard tacos. This one had salmon which I simply baked in the oven. I have a plain flour tortilla, iceberg lettuce, sriracha, avocado and mango salsa (mango, cilantro, honey, lime juice, chili flakes). All together, it just works. So many good flavours and it was pretty guilt free which…
