Crockpot Pinto Beans & Mexican Brown Rice

Making pinto beans in my crockpot is so easy! Pretty much just dump everything in and let it slow cook all day. This time (and some other times too) I forgot to soak my beans overnight. I did a quick soak method on my stovetop and the beans still turned out great. So if you’reContinue reading “Crockpot Pinto Beans & Mexican Brown Rice”

Street Tacos & Spanish Rice

When we lived in SoCal, we could go to our local grocery stores and buy pre-marinated Carne Asada steaks. There would normally be steaks that are marinated in a citrus or ranchero flavored marinade.

Oven Roasted Asparagus

We like to grill asparagus, but we also like to roast it in our oven! It still has a crunch to it and can brown just like on the bbq, while cooking up in your oven. My simple recipe makes asparagus taste so yummy, you’ll forget it’s good for you.
