BARBACOA TACOS

The other day I was looking for a new way to make my tacos. I am so over using the same sauce and getting the same taste. Now don’t get me wrong I love the way my tacos taste, but I just needed a CHANGE!

One Year Down…​Thank You For Giving Me A Chance

It has officially been 1 year since I started this particular blog and I have been welcomed into the blog world with open arms. I have to admit that every time I write something I second guess myself. I wonder if it’s interesting enough to get you to come back and view another post. I always try to just be myself and that alone is scary.

I remember when I first started my blog I was approached by a well known public figure and he gave me THE BEST pointer. He told me if I wanted my blog to be successive then I had to remain truthful to myself. Choose topics that hit me deep in my core and then just go. Talk the way I do every day, and make sure my personality is present at all times. When he told me this I said well what if people don’t like me or what I have to say?

He responded, “Do you have friends”? “Do they like to engage with you”? “After 17 years does your husband still like you and engage with you”? But most importantly “Do you like you and find yourself interesting”? I thought fair enough!

So here we go! My content is going to be bananas this year, filled with food, diets, crafts, workouts, real talk, and my Life. I am elated to welcome you all to my world.

I know that there are thousands and thousands of blogs that you could have joined or read but you chose mine and I’m honored!

Squash Tacos 🌮

Y ‘all ain’t ready for this but I’m going to tell you anyways to STOP whatever you are doing.

Right now I just need you to focus!

Take a sit and get ready to watch the video of the best twist for taco night. If you are anything like me then you probably don’t know much about cooking squash. I am stepping out of my comfort zone and chopping squash.

I was skeptical about making my tacos with squash. Now I’ve made squash soup and I’ve sautéed it, and even grilled it. But never I have I had squash on my tacos. But this year I am trying to clean up my eating and make as many healthy recipes that I can. I’m in the fitness industry so this is what I should be doing. Right? If I refuse to eat right then how can I tell others to. Now don’t get me wrong you will fine some recipes on here that will have you on the tread meal for a week straight! But that’s okay because sweating is good for you honey.

Okay so lets get to the kitchen and burn up some pots! Get all your ingredients out and lets play.

Ingredients

  • 1 large squash
  • Large yellow onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 4 ounce can of green Chile
  • 1 8 ounce can of enchilada sauce
  • 1 tbsp. of cumin
  • 1tsp of salt
  • 2 tsp. of pepper
  • 2 tsp of  chili powder
  • 1 8 ounce can of drained and rinsed black beans
  • mozzarella, cheddar, or any type of cheese of your choosing

Be careful when you are slicing up your squash. I cut myself because the squash wasn’t ripe enough and I was growing impatient (rookie mistake) and was getting quite wild while slicing the skin. okay so lets get passed my stupidity and watch the video below.

Okay ya got it? YAYYYY

After you put the final layer of cheese on, place it in the oven on broil and let cook for 5 min.  I STRESSSSSSSSSSS 5 minutes. It will burn and look a hot mess if you leave it in there any longer than that.

Thank you for watching and please come back!!💗

Shrimp Tacos 🌮 and Burritos 🌯 🌯

Ummm No I will not wait for Taco Tuesday to have some fun. I dive into my tacos any day of the week. I will mix up my main ingredients so that I can keep it fun and tasty. I like to try healthy light options so that I won’t feel guilty. Not to mention it allows me to have a few chips, queso and a margarita!
Enough chit-chat, let’s start digging into these tacos and burritos.
Here is the quick and easy recipe. Don’t be afraid to switch up the ingredients and have fun with it.

Ingredients

    2 cans black beans
    4 ounce can green chilies
    1 chopped green pepper
    1 chopped red pepper
    1 can refried beans
    6 ounce can enchilada sauce
    2 tablespoons cumin
    1 tablespoon black pepper
    2 teaspoons garlic
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    30 to 40 shrimps
    10 whole wheat soft shells
    Pack of hard shells
    Romaine Lettuce
    Guacamole
    Sour cream

Heat oven to 350°

Bake burritos for 15 minutes and broil for 3 minutes

In a heated pan add extra virgin olive oil and green pepper and red pepper. After those are sautéed add black beans, Refried beans, green chili peppers, enchilada sauce and seasonings.

Lastly add shrimp. It only takes a good four minutes for shrimp to cook.

When I made the tacos, I wanted my family to have more lettuce in their hard shells, so I thought of a creative trick. I placed a whole piece of lettuce inside the taco shell and then added my shrimp mixture. It worked perfectly!!!!

Please watch the video below (uh oh fixing video) and leave me a comment and any questions you may have. Please don’t forget to follow and watch all of my other yummy videos.
