Easy Breakfast Chilaquiles

Easy Breakfast Chilaquiles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican #breakfast #casserole #recipe

There is this thing in California that I didn’t quite “get” until I tried it … one of my friends used to order these every single morning for breakfast and she would just RAVE about them. I struggled to understand her obsession. Chilaquiles is a traditional Mexican dish that’s really very simple in concept. You […]


Ann’s Amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup

Ann's Amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican #chicken #soup #recipe

I have been in love with chicken tortilla soup forever it seems … the crunch of tortilla chips and dreamy melted cheese in a hot, spicy steamy chicken-laden broth with Mexican spices. Mmmmmm … I’ve made chicken tortilla soup before, but none that pleased me as well as this one. This one was even better than […]


Cilantro Pesto Fish Tacos w/Zucchini Corn Salsa

Cilantro Pesto Fish Tacos with Roasted Zucchini Corn Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #taco #quickeasydinner #recipe

I know what you’re thinking: the fish in this picture are GREEN! Why yes, they are. A vibrant, beautiful green because the fish fillets are rubbed in an oh-so-green Cilantro Almond pesto, then baked with extra nuts and cheese and some fresh cherry tomatoes on top, roasted to juicy perfection. The fish on its own is […]


Mixed Berry Dessert Nachos

Mixed Berry Dessert Nachos ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #redwhite&blue #easy #dessert #recipe

I am doing a Mexican cooking class today at work. Cooking is not my job, but I do these for fun for my coworkers, once a month (or so), at lunchtime. The company reimburses me for the cost of the food. It’s a lot of work and I don’t get paid for it, but I […]


Chicken Bacon Apple Fig Pizza

Chicken Bacon Apple Fig Pizza with Goat Cheese & Maple Balsamic Drizzle ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #thincrust #pizza #recipe

with goat cheese, zucchini ribbons, sweet onions and a maple balsamic drizzle  … Inspired by ChinDeep … plus a collection of fig recipes Or perhaps, since I “cheated” on the crust and used a tortilla in place of the pizza crust, we should call it a Tortizza?  Whatever you call it, it’s easy, delicious, and on […]


Garden Tomato Pepper Cheese Crisp

Garden Tomato Pepper Cheese Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #cheesy #tomato #pepper #recipe

My son and I went up to visit my mom and dad this weekend … their garden is producing like mad and, as usual, it is difficult keeping up with it all. The tomatoes and peppers are thick with fruit and mom and dad have been canning tomato juice and salsa, but after 20 jars […]


Beef & Black Bean Salad Nachos

Beef & Black Bean Salad Nachos ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #appetizer #recipe

When you’re torn between being bad and good, one part of you says you should have a salad but the other part wants a loaded plate of cheesy nachos, why not do a little of both? Sometimes I get home at the end of the day and I need something fast that doesn’t take too […]


Pesto Grilled Fish Tacos with Avocado Pico de Gallo

Pesto Grilled Fish Tacos with Avocado Pico de Gallo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #taco #recipe

I became a big fan of fish tacos when I lived in California. It sounded strange to me at first, but once I tried them, I was totally hooked. Now whenever I am faced with fish leftovers, I make some fish tacos. They are so easy, quick and such a nice twist on fish. This […]


Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

This tortilla soup was a soup inspired by a local restaurant … we go there every Wednesday for wine after yoga. Most of us just have wine, but every once in a while someone orders soup, and then someone else inevitably does. Sometimes I do, most of the time I don’t, but often my friends […]


Crunchy Beef & Bean Taco Cups

Crunchy Beef & Bean Taco Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican food #recipe

I got this clever and super simple idea from Abby at Manila Spoon. I showed Abby’s photo of these little crunchy taco cups to my daughter and the two friends she had over and they absolutely loved the idea. And since I’m behind on posting  anything for Cinco de Mayo this year, I decided to make […]


Triple Green Crunchwrap Supreme

Triple Green Crunchwrap Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crunchwrap #recipe

Have you ever been to Taco Bell and had their Crunchwrap Supreme? They take a tostada shell, add some taco meat and toppings and wrap a large flour tortilla around it, and grill it. It’s really a cool idea for a portable Mexican style “sandwich” with a crunch factor, except I always wanted a little […]


Tomato Egg Cilantro Pesto Breakfast Wrap

Tomato, Egg & Cilantro Pesto Breakfast Wrap ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #wrap #recipe

This is a simple, tasty breakfast that was born one morning when my daughter decided not to eat the egg I’d made her for breakfast. I was hungry and thought, “fine, then, I’ll eat it!” So I chopped and roasted a few cherry tomatoes, got out my Cilantro Almond Pesto, spread it on a spinach wrap, […]


Baked Cheesy Chicken Taquitos

Baked Cheesy Chicken Taquitos

with black beans & corn … adapted from Half Baked Harvest Crunchy baked taquitos, filled with a festive mixture of shredded chicken, cheese, onion, black beans, salsa & corn. Once upon a time, in another lifetime it seems, back when I was married and trips to Sam’s Club were a regular weekly thing, we used […]


Simply Spicy Tortilla Soup

Simply Spicy Tortilla Soup

Tortilla soup is one of the most marvelous things in life. It’s got everything going for it: the lovely crunch of the tortilla chips, the oozy melted cheese, tasty Mexican flavors, the soothing comfort of a hot bowl of soup. Plus it’s great for your sinuses and your health and it’s so easy to make. […]


Zucchini Avocado Quesadilla

Zucchini Avocado Quesadilla

So in case you haven’t noticed, the ingredient of the week (month?) is zucchini at my house. My sis brought me several zucchini, some beautiful stripey Italian zucchini and some plain green ones, some big, some little. I love zucchini season because it makes me get really creative in the kitchen, trying to think of […]


Spinach Avocado Quesadillas

Spinach Avocado Quesadillas

It was the big day, the day the dancers prepare for all year. My girl is in competition dance so she gets so many opportunities to perform, but it all leads up to THIS. The day of the big end-of-the-year dance recital. I thought I was being clever, but really, in hindsight, perhaps it wasn’t […]


Mexican Crunchwrap Supreme, My Way

Crunchwrap Supreme My Way

Taco Bell has this thing they call a Crunchwrap Supreme. It’s sort of like a tostada, with Nacho cheese sauce, wrapped in a tortilla, then “toasted” in a pan. It’s really a pretty good idea, but I’ve never actually tried one. Because whenever I saw one, I always thought, “I would have done it a […]


Cheesy Rice & Black Bean Burritos

Rice & Black Bean Burrito

… and a game of “tag” … I was tagged twice, first by Good Cooks and then Chef in Disguise tagged me again … I don’t know that I even think of this as a recipe … it is one of those throw-it-together kind of lunches, something I could almost do in my sleep. You could […]
