I made fish tacos for dinner tonight, normally I use fresh fish and bake it in the oven, but this time I used good quality frozen readymade fish I had in my freezer to pair it with this delicious, amazing sauce…

Also, I paired the sauce with thinly sliced cabbage, some cilantro and I was ready to serve a delicious, light dinner…

I have used this sauce in my coleslaw salad, by mixing, shredded carrots, shredded white cabbage, and shredded red cabbage, mixing some of the sauce with a little of buttermilk to thin it out, toss and let it stand for few hours.

Everyone knows how delicious Mexican food is, and I love cooking it every now and then. I love the delicious spicy aroma that fills the kitchen at dinner time, there is nothing smells better than onions and garlic cooking together.

Years ago, when I started experimenting with Mexican food, I bought a burrito-taco spice mix package from the store, I have to tell you the taste was awful, nothing but salt, and if you are an ingredients reader like me you won’t like what you see.

It is so easy to make your own spice mixture for burrito or fajita at home, making sure your family having a meal that it is clean from all the preservative in a store bought mixed spices.

.1 tsp. black pepper

.1 tsp paprika

.1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper

.1 tsp. cumin

.1 tsp. paprika

.6 cups cooked shredded chicken breast

.2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

.2 tbsp. chopped green onions

In a large sauté pan on medium heat, add vegetable oil and onion, add salt and sauté for few minutes until its soft and golden.

Add mixed bell pepper and cook until the liquid is evaporated, add all the spices, garlic granulate and cook for a minute.

Add cooked shredded chicken and cook for about 2-3 minutes stirring constantly.

Turn off the heat and serve family style with warm corn or flour tortilla, green rice, jalapeño salsa and vegetarian refried beans. Enjoy!

I tested a cheese sauce last night and it turned out delicious, hearty,
and cheesy goodness… And the meat added an extra delicious flavor.

I also used the same sauce to test my homemade Nachos and it turned out as
delicious as the Penne dish.

Also tested this sauce with steamed vegetables and there are no words to
describe the flavor, all I could say that it is absolutely delicious.

I am still in the testing stages with this sauce; I have to try and work on
it few more time, so I won’t post it just yet.

I promise I will once I get it perfect and up to standard to post.
