Mexicali Nachos with Beef and More

I want to start out with a brief note of something I did last year for the buildup of the big fifth of May holiday where I rewrote the words to the famous Christmas jingle the twelve days of Christmas with a distinctly Mexican holiday flare if you missed day one last year you can find it here. Now this is the link to day one you can jump through the full thing or treat yourself to one at a time like I did last year “12 Days of Cinco de Mayo – Day Uno“. Each day is connected to a different recipe so if you want to draw the holiday out for the full twelve days feel free to do so and check back to see what I have add new each day. I know I am a bit behind as I have had some health issue get in the way so sorry.

Also another slight site note I am doing some experimenting with the ad layouts and while most sites are adding more I am actual removing some and playing around with the layout. I am doing this for one important reason – “SPEED” see the sites all of their number one user is me and I spend a load of time on line and if I can speed my sites up I spend less time waiting for loading and thus work more efficiently. Now behind the scenes I already use one of the fastest and most robust servers available which makes our sites speed scores very impressive but I am a geek at heart and speed is something we regularly test for and adjust to squeeze every bit of it out of the sites as we can. Ads are a necessary thing to pay for this but they are also one of the things that slow any sites load time down so removing them is an instant speed gain.

So while others are loading their sites in loads of ads I am doing just the opposite and I hope you like the new layouts. See I am still a user too and I understand none of us likes them but that serve does cost money and my silly kids have this thing about eating sorry I know the nerve of them so please understand I do think of every user and that includes me. As for the upcoming holiday it is the third biggest food day in America only behind Thanksgiving and the Superbowl and to think it is really a Mexican holiday although celebrated more north of the border then south. Maybe they should think of that before anyone decides to build a wall.

I hope you have been enjoying the split from the authentic and traditional and been enjoying my one woman’s campaign to spread great taste all over and not worry about what to call it and just eat great food. I have so many more great recipes with this theme in mind I wish to share with you and hope you will come along for my journey to food freedom and the freedom of losing the guilt over what we call it and close your eyes and sample it before you judge it this or that. Also by the way you do not have to wait for a game night to enjoy these they can go with anytime you just want to sit back and enjoy a tasty treat.

When it comes to sports food and things we associate with game day parties Nachos are among peoples favorites and why wouldn’t they be they have the best of what we love about Mexican cuisine or Mexican inspired “I’m pretty sure that it is a this side of the border dish” but whether it is north or south of the border really doesn’t matter anymore as far as this site is concerned we love them and suggest eating them for one important reason they are so much darn fun to eat and bottom-line is they just taste so good. Now this is merely one suggestion on how you can make a nice combination of nacho ingredients they are open to loads of inspiration and interpretation too.

I have endeavored to gather as many delicious South of the border recipes here for you, including Mexican-inspired as well as traditional Mexican, and also some Tex-Mex and Mexican fusion dishes. Food is very important to our family's lives and Mexican food is certainly a favorite around here.

We have everything from appetizers and snacks to soups, drinks, entrées, and much more. You will find everything from mild dishes to super-spicy ones, simple recipes based on fresh ingredients up to more complex ones suitable for a dinner party.

Home cooks just starting out with Mexican cooking tend to be surprised how much of the emphasis is placed on using fresh ingredients and aromatic herbs and spices. Forget the typical ideas about Mexican food being all beans, cheese and beef (that applies a little more to Tex-Mex), take inspiration from authentic Mexican dishes based on fresh ingredients, and inject all your passion into cooking South of the border food, for perfect results every time.

Thanks for visiting,

Christine
